Benefits of VASER Liposuction and Hi-Def Liposculpting
A healthy diet and exercise program aren’t always enough to give you the lean, contoured body you want. According to New Haven liposuction specialist Nikki Rasmussen of YOLO Laser Center & Med Spa, if you’re bothered by stubborn fat pockets in trouble spots like your hips, thighs, abdomen or the backs of your arms, liposuction may be the answer. At YOLO Laser Center & Med Spa in New Haven, liposuction can be performed using a technology called VASER®.
What Is VASER?
A relatively new approach to liposuction, VASER uses ultrasound to break up and separate fat cells for removal. VASER is different from laser-assisted liposuction in that it is tissue-specific. That is, it only targets unwanted fat, not the surrounding tissues. This means shorter recovery times, less bruising and smooth results – not the lumpy appearance that can sometimes result from liposuction.
VASER can be performed in an outpatient setting; and can be done using only local anesthesia.
“VASER is really an amazing technology,” says Rasmussen. “We can perform it while the patient is wide awake, and we’re able to achieve very precise results with very little bruising and downtime.”
VASER can also be used for a procedure called VASER Hi-Def Liposculpting. This procedure is intended for patients with athletic builds who want additional muscle definition. In this procedure, VASER is used to etch the muscles, providing, for instance, a desirable “six-pack” look or better-defined pectoral muscles.
In women, VASER can be used to harvest unwanted fat for transfer to other areas where additional fullness is desired (e.g., lips or buttocks).
Like most liposuction procedures, VASER shouldn’t be considered a weight-loss program, but rather a way to eliminate exercise-resistant pockets of fat to achieve a leaner, more contoured look in specific areas. The best candidates for VASER are generally healthy, at a stable weight, and with relatively good skin elasticity.
