Benefits of VASER Liposuction
By Dr. Suzanne Yee on October 16, 2013
Don't you wish you could go to sleep and wake up with a beautifully toned, fit-looking body? Modern plastic surgery techniques continue to give patients their dream bodies, and the latest techniques cut down on risks, pain, and recovery time.
If you have been interested in liposuction to improve your shape or contours, you might be interested in VASER liposuction at our Little Rock practice. This body contouring procedure uses ultrasound technology to rid you of stubborn fat with minimal side effects, meaning you could be showing off your new body in no time.
A Brief Look at Liposuction
Liposuction involves a small incision near the problem area, where a device called a cannula is inserted and used to suction out targeted fat cells. The procedure is an effective way to sculpt problem areas; however, it is not a treatment for obesity or a substitute for proper diet and exercise.
What Is VASER Liposuction?
The LipoSelection system by VASER® uses ultrasound energy to break up and emulsify unwanted body fat while preserving nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. That means less pain and bruising than seen with traditional liposuction. Because LipoSelection offers the plastic surgeon greater precision, the technique is ideal for delicate areas, like the chin, neck, arms, and inner thighs.
This impressive technology also allows for Hi Def Liposculpture, a sculpted, athletic appearance achieved by removing deep and superficial fat around specific muscle groups. Dr. Suzanne Yee is one of 12 surgeons in the entire country who is specially trained to perform this progressive approach to body contouring.
What Are the Benefits of VASER Liposuction?
Compared to traditional liposuction, VASER liposuction gives you a better overall experience and minimizes recovery time. Other VASER benefits include:
- Minimal damage to nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues
- Precise body sculpting
- Smooth contours in delicate and large body areas
- Improved skin retraction
- Reduced number of re-treatments
- Minimal pain, swelling, and bruising
- Faster recovery time
What Can I Expect After Surgery?
After your VASER liposuction procedure, you will need to rest for a few days. You will notice some mild swelling, bruising, and tenderness, which should subside in a short time. You will be given a prescription for pain medication to help with any discomfort. Most patients return to normal activity in two or three days. Side effects such as bruising, swelling, and discomfort typically fade within two weeks of surgery. Patients can return to their regular exercise routine in four to six weeks. At three months after surgery, all residual swelling should subside, giving patients the opportunity to view the final results of the surgery.
