Also known as “fat removal surgery”, the traditional liposuction procedure consists of removing adipocytes (fat cells) from specific areas of the body in order the reshape it.
Liposuction is performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia in line with proper sedation. It is a 1-2 hours minor surgery and the patient generally can go home right after the procedure.
The Vaser© method is an improved version of the classic ultrasonic lipolysis procedure. Through the use of high frequency waves, unwanted fat cells are detached from tissues and softened.
With the Vaser© technology, ultrasonic energy is directly orientated to fat cells. This ensures a delicate removal of the cells from tissues (veins, nerve tissue, connective tissue); minimizing the damage on surrounding tissues, it reduces post-surgical symptoms like bleeding, bruises and pain.
