VASER liposuction is an alternative to traditional liposuction which results in less damage to surrounding, healthy tissue, faster recovery time and less scarring. VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance.
VASER liposuction can be used for precise fat removal as only small incisions are required. This also means that scarring is minimised as are recovery times. It can also be used to tone and define; you can talk to your doctor about what you are hoping to gain from the treatment so that they can tailor it to you.
One issue that comes with traditional liposuction when you start to remove more than about 7% of body fat is blood loss. Before VASER liposuction, a tumescent fluid is injected to restrict the blood vessels. This will limit blood loss so that more fat can be safely removed.
When fat cells are treated with ultrasound energy, it disrupts their cell membranes so that solid, stubborn fat turns to liquid. It also breaks connections between fatty tissue and muscle to minimise damage to healthy tissue. As the fat has been liquified it can then be removed with ease using a cannula and a needle rather than the tube used for traditional liposuction.
Whilst VASER can reduce cellulite, if this is your main concern, we would recommend Onda as it is designed to target cellulite. You may begin to see results immediately after treatment however, it normally takes about 3 months before you start seeing results and it could take 6 months to see the full effect.
