What is the Vaser Lipo, and How Does it Work?

Posted on

There are many types of liposuction procedures that will lift, tone and tighten your body. The Vaser Lipo procedure is gaining popularity, and is now being offered in most cosmetic clinics. If you have fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise, you may be a candidate for the Vaser Lipo procedure. Here is how it differs from traditional Lipo, how it works, and what you can expect on recovery.

How Vaser Lipo Works

To reduce the amount of bruising and blood loss, a tumescent saline solution is put into the body. This shrinks the blood vessels in the area that is to be reshaped. It also aids in breaking up the fat tissue. A probe is then used to break up the fat, using sound energy that is typical in any ultrasound. After the procedure, the liquefied fat is then taken out of the body through gentle suction, so as to not traumatize the outlying nerves and tissues. The ultrasound is easier on the system, gives a more rapid healing, and helps contour and smooth the area.

How Vaser Lipo Differs From Traditional Liposuction

The Vaser Lipo and traditional Liposuction both remove excess fat from the body and will tone as it does. Vaser uses ultrasound waves instead of using a vacuum-like device to suck out the fat from the body. It is much more delicate and easier on the body than traditional Lipo, which will result in less recovery time and less healing time. The Vaser Lipo can break up fat while keeping blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue safe. Traditional Lipo requires incisions and can have more side effects from the procedure than the Vaser Lipo procedure. Talk with your qualified surgeon about both procedures.

Vaser Lipo Recovery

The Vaser Lipo recovery time can be varied depending on what areas are done, how much is removed, and the medical condition of the person undergoing the treatment. Final results are able to be seen at the three to six month mark. Normal aging will continue and if you gain weight after the procedure there is a chance that the weight will distribute in the same areas that you had worked on. For the best results, exercise and eat right, maintaining your body’s toned qualities.

Determining which procedure, the Vaser Lipo or the traditional Lipo, is right for you will be determined after careful overview of your medical history and your expectations. You and your surgeon will go over any questions you may have on the procedure. Keep an open mind and a realistic outlook to your body after the procedure for the best results.
