Unfortunately, some fatty areas are stubbornly resistant to diet and exercise. VASER® Lipo delivers ultrasound energy that selectively targets and dissolves fat cells, facilitating fat removal. Unlike conventional liposuction, which can affect surrounding tissue and blood vessels during the suction process, VASER® Lipo breaks up and dislodges fat cells without harming surrounding tissue. As a result, the liquefied fat can be removed more efficiently. In addition VASER® Lipo produces less blood loss than with conventional liposuction.
If you are generally healthy, close to your ideal weight, and would like to remove small pockets of excess fat, VASER® Lipo may be right for you.
