At Kaado MD, Dr. Georges Kaado is always trying to stay with the newest and most advanced techniques to help his clients. In that vein, we are now offering VASER liposuction as a part of our body contouring and liposuction services.
VASER Liposuction is an acronym for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance–liposuction using ultrasound technology. In plain terms, VASER liposuction is a form of liposuction that uses ultrasound instead of a motion to help get the fat cells out of the body.
VASER Lipo has now entered into its third generation of technology, using a lower level of ultrasonic energy at a level that can eliminate the majority of specifically targeted fat cells without any of the old risk.
There are a lot of benefits to choosing to go with VASER liposuction over traditional liposuction. One of the most significant benefits is that you can have VASER liposuction while you are awake, and it usually lasts from as little as an hour, up to several hours.
VASER lipo is minimally invasive, and because of that, it usually results in less bleeding and minimal bruising, and a lot less pain. Due to this, the recovery period for VASER is shorter than for traditional liposuction.
This is an outpatient procedure, so you will be able to go home when the procedure is done and take the rest of the day to rest. Patients will have to be on light activity for up to three weeks.
By nature, VASER liposuction is a better choice for targeting specific areas of the body for sculpting. People looking to remove fat from or give definition to a particular area of their body are great candidates for VASER liposuction.
Men are also good candidates for VASER lipo because of the makeup of their body tissue. Since men have more fibrous tissue, VASER liposuction's ultrasonic technology breaks up the fat easier than the traditional lipo.
VASER is also a better choice for specific areas on women, specifically those more fibrous tissue areas. This could be around where your bra tends to fit and roll (bra fat), or what is commonly referred to as the love handles. Keep in mind that pain and time recovery also can be a factor with liposuction, so if you are looking to minimize both of those areas after the procedure, VASER is the choice for you.
Though VASER liposuction can be useful on all areas of the body, there are targeted parts of the body that it works best on. The technique can work all over the body; however, discussing your goals plus your body type with Dr. Kaado will help him choose what is best for your target goals. VASER liposuction is most effective and beneficial for:
Recovery time from VASER liposuction is generally much shorter and less bothersome than traditional liposuction requires. Because it is an outpatient and less invasive procedure, recovery starts as soon as the surgery is over.
Once home, you will be in less pain and showing fewer physical signs of the surgery with less swelling and bruising. You will have a recovery time of a few to several days for a VASER liposuction procedure, depending on what you had done, the size of the treatment area, and how well you stick to a light activity routine following your release.
