With the advancing technology, different techniques have begun to be used besides liposuction operations, with intent to provide regional slimming. One of these is the Vaser Liposuction procedure.
With the Vaser Liposuction procedure, the fat cells in the application regions are melted and taken out of the body by means of ultrasound energy. The most important feature of this procedure is the fact that it melts the fat tissue in a selective manner, without causing damage to the surrounding tissues, blood vessels, nerves and the skin. With this procedure, it is possible to remove all locally accumulated fat deposits in the body including the abdomen, waist, buttocks, inner parts of the legs, areas around the knee, lower leg, arms, jowl, ankles, back, and the nape of the neck. With Vaser liposuction, it is possible to accentuate the waist curves and also build abdominal muscles through the Vaser High Definition procedure.
The Vaser Liposuction procedure is performed under local anesthesia in small areas but is performed also under general anesthesia in multiple areas.
Surface irregularities and skin corrugations seen in the classical and laser liposuction procedures does not occur in those who have undergone Vaser Liposuction because the fat tissue is liquefied with ultrasonic power. Pain and bruising are less in comparison with other procedures.
