“The Advantages of VASER Lipo” by Dr. Patrick Hsu
by Dr. Patrick Hsu
Liposuction is one of the most popular types of aesthetic surgery in the United States. This is because a plastic surgeon can use the procedure to contour and sculpt your body into a pleasing and attractive shape. He or she can give you the figure that you once had, or the figure that you never had but always wanted. It is a safe and effective plastic surgery that produces dramatic results. It isn’t a method for extreme weight loss, but rather it is used to counter the 10 pounds or so of unwanted fat that collects in pockets, typically found around your mid section, thighs, hips, and back.
Different types of liposuction
There are several types of liposuction procedures. There is traditional suction-based lipo; there is ultrasound-assisted lipo, known as VASER liposuction, and there is smart lipo that uses lasers. The ultrasound technique is often the preferred type because it produces less stress to the surrounding tissue. Each type necessitates the fat cells being suctioned from underneath the skin via a hollow thin metal tube called a cannula. The primary difference in procedures is that the ultrasound application uses sound waves to render the fat cells into liquid form prior to removing it. This liquid fat is easier to remove from the body than the solid fat; thereby reducing trauma to the surrounding tissue.

The benefits of the VASER liposuction technique
It has been reported that the VASER liposuction procedure enables the plastic surgeon to provide more contour, thus improving the results offered by standard liposuction surgery. The liquefied fat cells can be removed in a more even manner, and the cannula is smaller, requiring smaller incisions, minimizing blood loss and scarring. This in turn, leads to a quicker recovery time with less possibility of bruising. Most VASER procedures do not require a general anesthetic, so a local can be used, eliminating the risks associated with general anesthesia. Patients are awake and comfortable during the procedure.
VASER liposuction is FDA approved and is safe and highly effective, especially in the thighs, bottom, and mid section. The risks of the surgery are almost nil, particularly when compared to other forms of liposuction.
