VASER means -[ vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance]
Liposuction is one of the commonest cosmetic procedures done all over the world. It’s a fat removal procedure, performed under anesthesia, in which metallic cannulas are used to suck the fat out from the subcutaneous fat pockets, assisted by negative pressure generated in suction machine. In this conventional lipo [ SAL] the fat is removed by the process called avulsion.
What is Vaser Liposuction?
This is physically demanding for surgeon., and needs forceful thrusting motions of the cannula, and due to which there is repetitive tearing of surrounding tissues to breakup fatty deposits. That can damage few of the nerves, blood vessels, connective tissue , and consequently results into bleeding , bruising and discomfort. We the plastic surgeons have been seeking ways to improve the procedure for our patients.
Vaser is a great technological advance.
vaser probe uses high frequency 36khz ultrasonic energy for fat emulsification. This is called liposelection and not liposuction. this targets only fat. There is no damage to nerves and blood vessels. After vasering in the next phase of aspiration the emulsified fat is evacuated. Consequently that provides smooth contour and results in minimal pain, minimal bruising and fast recovery.
Vaser liposelection is a day care procedure
Postoperatively patient is advised to wear the compression garment for 6 weeks. And one can attend the work or duty in couple of days.
In short the vaser is great technology, that provides excellent and predictable outcome and also fast recovery.
