So what exactly is Vaser Lipo? Well, Vaser is an acronym that stands for “Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance.” Vaser Lipo is a new form of Liposuction that is less invasive and can produce immediate results. Generally, liposuction is a type of procedure that uses a suction technique to remove excess fat from the body. The general technique of liposuction oftentimes has a longer recovery period and can come with some discomfort. Because of the less invasive components of Vaser Lipo, a person has a shorter recovery time and less pain when recovering from Vaser Lipo.

So how does Vaser Lipo work? Vaser Lipo is different from traditional liposuction because instead of an invasive technique of sucking the fat from certain parts of your body, Vaser Lipo uses a minimally invasive technique to gently remove fat cells from the body. During a Vaser Lipo procedure, the area of the body that you want to be treated is filled with a medicated solution. The fat cells are then treated with ultrasound energy and are removed from the body through a gentle suction process. The surrounding tissues are left intact, giving you the smoother contours you want with less pain and recovery time than traditional liposuction. With traditional Liposuction, large areas of fat are removed and can often damage some of the surrounding nerves and tissue. With Vaser Lipo, the fat is broken down with ultrasound energy before it is removed so as not to damage surrounding tissue and nerves. This in turn results in less post-op pain and discomfort.

So why get a Vaser Lipo procedure as opposed to a traditional Liposuction procedure? Well, Vaser Lipo has plenty of benefits as opposed to the traditional way Liposuction is generally performed. Not only can Vaser Lipo provide physical advantages to the recipient of the procedure but it can also help the recipient become more confident with faster results. 

Some of the other advantages of Vaser Lipo the recipient of Vaser Lipo can experience include:

  • Enhanced skin retraction
  • No damage to surrounding tissues or nerves 
  • Vaser Lipo is a less invasive and less painful procedure than traditional Liposuction 
  • Results seen as early as 1 week
  • Multiple areas can be targeted in one treatment 
  • Vaser Lipo is the most precise liposuction technique out there

Not only does Vaser benefit the person receiving the treatment, but the new way of performing liposuction the Vaser way can also benefit the surgeons performing the treatment.

Vaser Lipo can be for anyone who has stubborn fat that they want to get rid of. However, it is recommended to get the best results that Vaser Lipo is for people who are at their ideal weight for a healthy weight and just want to target certain areas on their body where stubborn fat is at. Vaser Lipo isn’t a fix all solution, but it can help target areas of your body where diet and exercise don’t seem to help to get rid of excess fat. Vaser Lipo is also for anyone who has considered Liposuction but wants to try a less invasive and less painful procedure first. 

Vaser Lipo is a great alternative to traditional Liposuction, but that doesn’t mean it is for everyone. Always take into account the positive and negative effects of any procedure before you decide to have it done and always remember to consult your doctor before deciding on any procedure. But if you do your research and like the benefits of traditional Liposuction but not the recovery process or the invasiveness of the procedure, then  Vaser Lipo might be the right choice for you! With the minimal invasive technique you can have those stubborn areas of fat removed from your body in no time without a long and painful recovery period.
