When it comes to the subject of fat removal, there are many different kinds of treatment options available. One of these treatment options is Vaser liposuction. Vaser is completely non-invasive, meaning there’s a much faster recovery time associated with it, as well as a diminished amount of bruising and swelling.
Vaser liposuction is usually performed in a physician’s office, and patients do not have to receive anesthesia. Instead, patients will begin to see results after the first session, but they are most visible after three to five sessions.
The Vaser Liposuction Procedure
Before beginning the procedure, a saline solution that has been pre-mixed with anesthetics will be injected into the area that is being worked on.
Vaser liposuction uses high frequency vibrations to break fat cells apart from healthy cells. This is achieved by using Vaser ultrasonic probes that are inserted into the fat cells. Once inserted, the high frequency vibrations loosen the excess fat cells, while also mixing the saline solution that contains the anesthetics. A cannula is then used to clear away the liquid, as well as the fat cells. Some of the liquid containing the anesthetics remains in the tissue to help with any pain after the procedure has finished. Though there may be some pain after the procedure, Vaser liposuction has been shown to be significantly gentler than traditional liposuction techniques. Vaser liposuction also gives your surgeon more control over the procedure, leading to better post procedure results.
Recovery after Vaser liposuction is quick, and most patients can return to their day-to-day activities the next day. It is common for skin to look pink, and to feel warm for a few hours after the procedure. You may experience temporary changes in your bowel movements, as well as increased urination after completion.
