You are at a comfortable weight. Despite a healthy diet and an exercise routine, you still have pockets or areas of stubborn fat. VASER Liposuction is a type of liposuction that breaks apart fat cells and loosens them from deeper tissues so that fat can be removed. VASER is an acronym for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. This ultrasound technology uses powerful ultrasonic waves to break apart the fat cells. VASER liposuction can target any of the following areas: abdomen, arms, chest, back, chin, hips, thighs, and buttocks.
Depending on the area treated either general or local anesthesia is required. A tumescent fluid will be injected into the targeted area. Then ultrasound probes will be inserted into the skin through a tiny incision to break up the fatty tissue. The fatty tissue will start to break apart and a cannula will be inserted to vacuum out the fat cells and the fluid.
VASER liposuction is a low-risk procedure. However, some common side effects include: persistent swelling, pain/aching, bruising/bleeding, asymmetry, loose skin, and infection. After VASER liposuction your body will look bruised and swollen and you will not be able to see the results right away. It takes time for your body to heal. Your body will weep fluid for a few days and you will need to wear a compression garment for several weeks to help reduce the swelling.
Recovery time is different for each person, most people can expect to see the best results between 3-6 months after their procedure. Most people need several days of rest to recover. Results from VASER liposuction can be permanent, however, it is important that you continue to eat a healthy diet and exercise routine so your body does not regain unwanted fat cells.
VASER liposuction is not a weight-loss tool. This procedure is for people who are trying to target stubborn fat areas. To find out if VASER liposuction is right for you please call us to book a consultation 912.681.3330.
