What is Microcannular Vaser Liposuction?

Microcannular Vaser Liposuction is an advanced surgical technique used for body contouring and fat removal. Vaser stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance, which refers to the ultrasound technology utilized in this procedure. Unlike traditional liposuction, which uses manual suction to remove fat, Vaser liposuction employs ultrasound energy to selectively target and liquefy fat cells before they are gently suctioned out.

Here’s how the procedure typically works:

  1. Preparation: Before the procedure, the patient will have a consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon to discuss their goals, medical history, and suitability for Vaser liposuction. The surgeon will assess the areas of concern and develop a personalized treatment plan.

  2. Anesthesia: Vaser liposuction is usually performed under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the surgery and the patient’s preferences.

  3. Tumescent Infiltration: Prior to the Vaser treatment, a tumescent solution containing saline, local anesthetic, and epinephrine is injected into the targeted areas of fat. This solution helps numb the area, minimize bleeding, and facilitate the emulsification of fat cells during the Vaser procedure.

  4. Ultrasound Energy: Once the tumescent solution has been administered, the surgeon inserts a small probe, called a microcannula, into the treatment area. The probe emits ultrasound energy, which selectively targets and breaks down the walls of fat cells while preserving surrounding tissues such as blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue.

  5. Emulsification: The ultrasound energy emulsifies the fat cells, turning them into a liquid or semi-liquid substance. This allows for easier and more precise removal of the fat during the suctioning process.

  6. Suctioning: After the fat cells are liquefied, a thin suction cannula is inserted into the treatment area to gently remove the emulsified fat. The surgeon uses a meticulous and artistic approach to sculpt and contour the treated areas, achieving the desired aesthetic outcome.

  7. Closure and Recovery: Once the desired amount of fat has been removed, the incisions are closed with sutures, and compression garments may be applied to the treated areas to reduce swelling and support the healing process. Patients typically experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort following the procedure, which can be managed with pain medication and proper post-operative care.

Overall, Vaser Liposuction is a safe and effective option for patients seeking to remove stubborn fat deposits and achieve a slimmer, more sculpted physique. It’s essential to undergo Vaser Liposuction from a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to ensure the best possible outcome and minimize the risk of complications.
