VASER Lipo Explained

VASER lipo is a type of liposuction that has become increasingly popular.   During VASER lipo, areas that contain fat are filled with a tumescent solution.  This unique solution contains both a numbing and blood vessel constricting medication that work together to make it easier for fat to pass through the steel suctioning tube.

There are several benefits related to administering this solution to patients.  First, patients often get better results from their liposuction procedures.  Second, there is less bleeding during the surgery.  Finally, patients suffer less pain.

VASER liposuction is also unique because a steel tube is pushed through the fat and its tip emits high frequency sound waves.  These sound waves shake up fat cells, turning them into liquid emulsion and do not injure nerves or blood vessels.  After the fat cells have been subjected to the sound waves, a suction tube is introduced to remove the fat fluid, which is quite extraordinary for body contouring.
