Liposuction is a medical procedure, which removes the body fat by injecting small tubes through the skin. The most common areas for liposuction are thighs, buttocks, neck, and back of arms. In the traditional approach, hollow stainless steel tubes are used with the assistance of powerful vacuum.
Use of ultrasonic waves for liposuction started in the 1980’s. Currently, we are using the 3rd generation liposuction in which high frequency ultrasound vibrations enable the fat cells to break, thus giving the body part the desired shape. This modern technique gives a better control to the surgeon and is considered easier than its older counterparts. It doesn’t include general aesthetics, thereby reducing the health risk of the patients. Also, Vaser liposuction is meticulously designed to loosen the fat of the desired body part and preserve other tissues. So, there is less bleeding and bruises.
Vaser Liposuction: How It Is Done?
Vaser or Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance is the latest type of cosmetic surgery. Through this surgery, the stubborn fats beneath the skin are removed to tone that specific part of the body. It makes use of the sound waves to melt the fat of that area, making the path for liposuction to shape up the body.
During Vaser Liposuction, a mixture of anesthetic and either saline solution or tumescent liquid is injected into the area of the part from where fat is to be removed. With ultrasound high frequency vibration, it breaks down the fat cells.
How Much Painful Is The Procedure?
As the treated areas of your body remain tender for some days, it is better to consume pain killers prescribed by the d0octor. Sessions of therapy at the initial stage may be a bit uncomfortable for you. However, your surgeon will adjust the intensity of the treatment accordingly.
What Are The Side Effects?
- Skin hardening
- Formation of scar tissue
- Un-removed fat lumps
- Skin sticking under the tissues may restrict the movement
Aftercare is crucial to achieve an aesthetic result quickly. It includes smooth skin retraction, minimization of bruising and swelling, checking of infection, and taking out of seromas and fluids.
