Ultrasound technology has been used in medicine for years to get that first glimpse of a baby during pregnancy, do away with cataracts, and even to clean teeth. Now the power of ultrasound can also be used to reduce unwanted deposits of fat with low to minimal pain.*
How Does VASERlipo® Work?
VASER Liposelection™ combines patented technology with advanced surgical techniques to break-up and reduce fat, while leaving surrounding tissue relatively intact. Tumescent liquid (a saline solution mixed with anesthetics) is injected into the body area being treated. Instead of using a suction cannula and manual movement to break down the fat tissue, or the thermal energy of a laser, VASER uses ultrasound high frequency energy to break apart fat cells. The ultrasound waves gently disengage, loosen and emulsify the fat cells into the tumescent fluid that has been infused into the body area. A small cannula is then used to excavate the liquid and fat cells. Some of the local anesthetic remains in the tissue, thus helping reduce post-procedural discomfort.*
VASER Liposelection™ provides the ability to slim and shape your body but, generally, does not provide for bulk fat reduction. However, assuming you maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle, fat should not return or migrate. Should you experience future weight loss or gain, it will be evenly distributed over your entire body.* This precise process allows Dr. Schwartz to shape delicate areas, such as the inner thighs, arms, chin and neck.
