How It Works
The Science Behind the Art
VASER Lipo® uses ultrasonic energy — high-frequency sound waves — to produce superior results. Find out more about the science behind this revolutionary technology.
Understanding VASER Lipo
VASER Lipo uses a minimally invasive technique called LipoSelection® to selectively break apart and gently remove unwanted fat.
To begin the procedure, the targeted area is injected with a special saline solution known as "tumescent fluid." Tumescent fluid numbs the target area and shrinks local blood vessels. It also temporarily expands the volume of the targeted area, making fat cells easier to remove.
Small-diameter probes are then inserted into the body through small incisions. By resonating at a high ultrasonic frequency, the probes literally shake loose fat cells — while leaving blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues unharmed.
The loose fat cells mix with the tumescent fluid, which is then removed from the body using gentle suction.
After the 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.
Visualizing VASER Lipo
Infiltration. The fatty layer is injected with tumescent fluid.
Ultrasonic energy delivery. The high frequency vibration of VASER® ultrasonic probes causes the fat cells to shake apart and combine into the tumescent fluid.
Aspiration. Loose fat is easily removed via specially designed suction tubes.
Skin retraction. During the healing process, skin will retract to give smooth, natural-looking results.
