How Vaser Liposuction Works

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.

#12011-02-21 16:01:23

Can't think of anything, all was excellent.

#22011-05-03 10:51:30

While I totally understand the late policy, unfortunately my daughter and I drove 1.5 hrs to the facility and given the weather and errorous directions, we ended up being 7 mins late. I immediately called the office while on route to explain that we were lost and sought correct directions. The receptionist was very curt, short and condesending. Upon our arrival, there was no warm greeting and very limited eye contact. Again,as a heath care provider myself, I appreciate the need to follow a schedule, however, our appointments were in direct succession and I do not think it would have had a significant impact on the work schedule, given our special circumstance.

#32011-03-24 10:10:11
