During the healing process, skin will retract to give smooth, natural-looking results.
Dr. Palumbo is one of the few physicians worldwide that combines both state of the art procedures, Vaser Lipo Sculpture & Smart Laser MPX, into one body contouring technique.
Vaser Assisted Liposculpture utilizes ultrasonic energy to break up unwanted fat deposits. The use of Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction (UAL) allows safer removal of larger amounts of fat than with standard liposuction or laser liposuction. This increase in safety is due to the reduced amount of blood removed with UAL. This means that UAL can be very useful to moderately overweight individuals even though UAL is not a weight loss method per se.
How Does Vaser Liposcupture Work?
Vaser liposuction utilizes ultrasonic technology to melt fat. Unlike the standard form of ultrasonic liposuction, however, vaser lipo is conducted on a much smaller scale. This makes it much more precise and eliminates the need for the patient to be unconscious during the procedure. After the fat has been melted by the ultrasonic device it is removed from the body using a very small, very precise cannula (suction device). Essentially it does for ultrasonic liposuction what smart liposuction does for laser liposuction, but vaser lipo is capable of removing more fat than smart lipo.
The targeted area is injected with a special saline solution (tumescent fluid) to numb the area and shrink local blood vessels. It also temporarily expands the volume of the target area, making fat cells easier to remove.
Small probes are then inserted into the body through small incisions. These probes resonate at a high ultrasound frequency, shaking fat cells loose while leaving surrounding tissues intact.
The loose fat cells mix with the tumescent fluid, and are then removed from the body using special cannulas which help preserve the tissue matrix.
After surgery, patients are prescribed a recovery regimen to promote maximum skin retraction and smooth results. Your physician may recommend massage therapy to enhance results and speed recovery.
VASERlipo probes cause the fat cells to shake apart and combine with the tumescent fluid.
Loose fat is easily removed via specially designed suction tubes.
The fatty layer is injected with tumescent fluld.
The Advantages of Vaser Liposculpture
The advantages of vaser assisted liposuction over standard liposuction procedures are obvious. Only a local anesthetic is used, so the risks and post-operative discomfort are greatly decreased. Vaser liposuction is being called 'walk in, walk out' surgery because you can be back at home within hours of undergoing the procedure and back to work the next day. These advantages are also true of smart liposuction, however vaser liposuction is capable of removing larger amounts of fat and will leave blood vessels undamaged, reducing bruising, swelling and post-operative discomfort even further. Because vaser lipo is such a quick and easy procedure, it is also much cheaper than traditional liposuction techniques.
