Many of us deal with stubborn fat deposits that just won’t seem to budge, despite diet and exercise. Liposuction is a great, comprehensive solution to this issue. There are a number of different liposuction techniques that can be used to achieve your aesthetic goals. Read on to learn more about one of these popular techniques: VASER liposuction.

About VASER Liposuction

VASER liposuction is a liposuction technique used for sculpting, etching, and defining. VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. It uses ultrasonic energy to heat fat cells and remove them while leaving surrounding tissues untouched. The result is a significant fat reduction and permanent skin tightening.

There are many benefits associated with VASER liposuction. It is great at addressing delicate areas of the body, including the neck, chin, inner thigh, and more. It also has significantly less bruising, swelling, and trauma compared to other liposuction techniques. Patients who choose VASER can treat large amounts of fat in one sitting, and multiple body areas can also be treated during the same session. Lastly, VASER can be used to sculpt the abs or create a six pack in patients who are already fit and looking for an extra boost.

What to Expect

During the VASER liposuction procedure, a tumescent numbing fluid is first injected into the treatment areas. This fluid constricts blood vessels to limit bleeding, as well as numbs the tissue. It also helps to better expose fatty tissue to the energy of the VASER device. Small cannulas are used to transmit the VASER ultrasonic waves to break down fat and tighten the skin.

As you can see, VASER liposuction is a great solution to stubborn fat and lax skin. If you are interested in learning more about VASER liposuction in Brandon, contact our office today!
