Unlike traditional liposuction, where fat cells are traumatically suctioned away, the VASER Lipo system is used to pre-treat the problem areas, breaking up fat cells and emulsifying them with ultrasound energy prior to suctioning. This technique is notably less traumatic than traditional liposuction. VASER Lipo does a better job of preserving blood vessels and lymphatic drainage channels; this can significantly decrease bruising and facilitate a more rapid recovery. The technique is ideal for removing fat from the neck, upper arms, male chest, flanks, abdomen, thighs and knees, many of the areas that can be resistant to refinement through diet and exercise. For many, the procedure can be performed safely, comfortably and privately in the in-office setting.
Dr. Atagi says both men and women have been choosing procedures with VASER Lipo. Men commonly choose to have male breast reduction, remove love handles or refine the chin; women often choose to slim the abdomen or thighs.
