10 Nov New Vaser Liposuction Treatment
The next generation in fat removal for body contouring is tumescent laser liposuction. Tumescent liposuction, which has been available since the 1980s, is a popular elective treatment for fat removal without general anesthesia. At Ulmer and Wu Dermatology, we use a cutting edge, patented laser liposuction technology called The VASER® Lipo System, because it is safer and promotes faster healing than traditional liposuction.
The procedure is performed with local anesthesia which is tumesced in the fat. You are awake, but relaxed throughout the entire procedure. It is considered to be the safest procedure for healthy people who experience stubborn fat pockets (perhaps in the stomach area or under the shoulder blades on the lower back) which they just cannot get rid of despite working out regularly and eating a healthy diet.
This exciting, new and minimally invasive laser procedure may be the treatment option you have been waiting for. If you live in Long Beach, liposuction treatments conducted in our office will be convenient for you. Not only are we located in the Long Beach community, but we perform the procedure on an outpatient basis, so no hospital stay is necessary. Your recovery is in the comfort of your own home. If you have the procedure done on a Friday you will probably be able to return to work or your normal activities on Monday.
These advantages stem from the manner in which the VASER® Lipo System and advanced “liposelection” technique work. They use ultrasonic energy to break down only the fat deposits, leaving other tissue undisturbed. The laser beam can actually seal off blood vessels as it works too. Because this reduces bleeding, bruising and swelling, Vaser liposuction has definite advantages over traditional liposuction. Smoother results, more rapid healing, and less downtime are just a few of these advantages. Some patients even say that they have little, if any, discomfort.
This liposuction procedure is performed under a local anesthesia called “tumescent anesthesia.” This type of anesthesia is a safer alternative to general anesthesia, avoiding the risks and complications (as well as the higher costs) associated with general anesthesia. As a result, you experience a much faster recovery period after your liposuction. In fact, you may even be able to resume your usual workout routine in two to three weeks.
Patients who said that they would never consider traditional liposuction are now finding the VASER® Lipo System procedure to be a better alternative.
