It is a Fast World. Time is at a premium. Folks do not have time to exercise, junk food abounds. In an ideal world, liposuction would be unnecessary. Everyone would eat moderately, in the correct quantities and would exercise. But, the world is far from ideal! And so plastic surgery for unwanted fat removal or liposuction becomes more and more popular every year. Also, as people want less and less invasive surgical procedures and more and more predictable results, the popularity of liposuction for unwanted fat removal has generated demand for better technology which can make liposuction safer, painless and quicker. Patients and Facial Plastic Surgeon alike have constantly sought solutions that can make liposuction a better and more satisfying procedure. VASER is the latest technological offering in this context hendels garden goji cream.
VASER has been around since 2002, when it was approved by USFDA for fat removal. VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. Simply put it adds the benefit of ultrasound technology to the standard Liposuction Procedure. Ultrasound waves are sound waves at specific frequency and one commonly comes across it during ultrasound cleaning of dental plaque and while looking at the growing baby in mother’s womb. Usage of ultrasound for liposuction itself is not new. Ultrasound assisted liposuction ( UAL) was very popular in the 1980’s. Vaser has resurrected ultrasound in liposuction. The speciality of Vaser is “ liposelection” – meaning it caused damage to fat cells only without damaging other tissues. Simply put, the VASER technology converts by sound energy the thick fat into almost liquid milk-shake like consistency.
Vaser Liposuction is a surgical procedure like the good old liposuction, however the technology and the results differ. As this new type of fat removal causes much less ‘collateral’ tissue damage, VASER is used more and more for delicate fat removal from the face. The face, as we know, is a myriad of many nerves and vessels and any damage to a nerve or vessel has permanent repercussions on the way the face animates and looks. This is where VASER is specifically handy as the VASER energy can just melt away stubborn fat from delicate areas like the jaw line, cheeks, chin and convert a generally ‘round’ face to an ‘angular’ or more pleasant ‘oval’ one.
VASER is performed in a sterile operation theatre by qualified plastic surgeon. General or local anaesthesia is used . Tumescent solution which may contain local anaesthetic is injected into the fat to be suctioned. Injection of tumescent solution shrinks blood vessels, provides anaesthesia and also creates a safe environment for VASER by completely soaking the fat tissue. The Vaser probe, which is a solid titanium rod of 3-5mm diameter is then introduced into the fatty layer through very small 3-5 mm cuts in the skin. The ultrasound energy is delivered at accurate dosage at the tip of the probe, while moving the probe through fat in all layers all over the area. The ultrasound energy selectively destroys the fat cell membrane and liquefies the fat. Since the blood vessels, nerves and skin are resistant to lower doses of ultrasound, they are safe. The liquefied fat is then vacuumed out with hollow suction metal canulas attached to the VASER suction vacuüm machine.
Facial VASER liposuction is a day-care procedure surgery and does not require hospitalization. Antibiotics and painkiller tablets are prescribed and usage of compression garments is mandatory for2 weeks or so after VASER liposuction.
Tissue swelling is natural after any surgical procedure. After VASER liposuction results are seen gradually over next one month onwards as gradually swelling comes down and skin retracts. This is facilitated by wearing compression garment.
So what is the special Advantage of VASER Liposuction? Vaser liposuction enables sculpting of delicate areas like the face, which were hitherto unsafe with traditional suction-based liposuction due to chances of collateral tissue damage to essential nerves and vessels. Also, if VASER is used for abdominal liposuctions, etc, the surgeon can remove more fat, with less blood loss and lesser down-time and without the need for blood transfusion. Recovery after large liposuction is faster with VASER. Vaser also allows for better sculpting in tougher and fibrous areas like back and male abdomen. High definition liposculpture with VASER is gaining popularity for creating six pack abdomen look. Vaser has been used in more than 100,000 procedures all over the world and has proven to be safe.
