Vaser Liposuction Can get You Ready for Summer
It is easy to assume that liposuction is liposuction is liposuction, but that isn’t the case. Liposuction is the general term that we use to describe surgical fat reduction on various parts of the body. Initial liposuction procedures involved small incisions and the insertion of a narrow cannula, or tube. At the opposite end of the cannula was a machine with a reservoir and gentle vacuum, which would disrupt fat cells from their cozy little home and extract them from the body for good. Since those early days, some innovative techniques have been developed to improve the process. Vaser liposuction is one of them.
We are pleased to offer Vaser liposuction in our Seattle and Renton offices as a way for men and women from these areas to obtain the physical shape that suits them. If you don’t want to face another summer trying to hide a muffin top, saddlebags, or other stubborn fat, we can help you. Vaser liposuction is an expansion of the fat-reducing method that has helped millions of people feel better about their body.
The Vaser Difference
The Vaser technique also referred to as liposelection, is a procedure that emulsifies fat cells before their extraction. This may seem similar to laser liposuction, but the Vaser technique employs safe, effective ultrasound rather than laser light to melt lipids within fat cells for easier extraction and better sculpting ability. Compared to laser liposuction, the use of ultrasound is less disruptive to surrounding tissue and nerve endings because this energy is fat-specific. Vaser is also thought to be more predictable than tumescent liposuction, which injects fluid into fat accumulations to break them apart before they are removed.
Because Vaser liposuction does not affect surrounding tissue such as blood vessels, there is a lower risk of complications or lingering side effects. The gentleness with which ultrasound disbands fatty deposits also makes this technique suitable for areas in which tissue is more fibrous, such as the back. Because blood vessels remain intact, circulation through the treatment area can increase as needed during recovery, aiding in faster tissue healing.
You deserve to feel great this summer, and the next, and the next. Schedule a visit to our Renton or Seattle office to see how Vaser liposuction can make that happen.
