Many Littleton, CO area patients who are interested in contouring their body and addressing specific areas of unwanted fat are all too familiar with plastic surgery procedures such as liposuction. While effective, traditional liposuction can be hard on the body and result in extensive bruising and swelling. However, thanks to continued advances in the field of medicine, Dr. Lisa Hunsicker and her team at Revalla Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics are pleased to provide alternative options that are less invasive and more precise. This includes liposuction through a method called Vaser® liposuction.
What is Vaser® liposuction?
Many patients who hear about Vaser® liposuction are intrigued to learn more. This particular liposuction method employs ultrasound technology to provide minimal damage to the connective tissues in the treated area and reduce bruising and swelling after the operation. In addition, when patients undergo Vaser® liposuction, they will also recover faster from the procedure, allowing them to return to their normal activities sooner than conventional methods.
What can I expect from Vaser® liposuction?
The Vaser® liposuction treatment is performed through very small incisions in inconspicuous areas around the treatment spot. A special solution is injected into the area to help facilitate fat removal and minimize bruising from the procedure. Liquefied fat is removed after ultrasound energy is used to break it up, ensuring smoother, more precision results.
Where can Vaser® liposuction be performed?
Our team finds that patients with unwanted fat anywhere on the body can benefit from Vaser® liposuction, with the more common areas treated being the hips, thighs, abdomen, flanks, back, and upper arms. The procedure is performed with local anesthetic instead of general anesthesia or deeper sedation, reducing the need for medical anesthetics and a hospital-based treatment.
