What is VASER® Standard Liposuction?
VASER® Standard Liposuction refers to a fat extraction body contouring procedure. VASER® technology uses specialized equipment to break down the fat cells of a targeted body area with ultrasound energy. By breaking down only the targeted fat cells, this procedure can accomplish two things:
- Complete removal of fat cells in the area due to the fat-targeting ultrasonic technology.
- The important surrounding tissue is left undamaged, creating a sculpted look to the area.
Once the fat is broken down, VASER® Standard Liposuction relies on a gentle suctioning technique to remove these emulsified fat cells from the body. This procedure is safe, effective, and minimally invasive. Many patients choose this procedure because of its fast, visible results and minimal downtime.
Where on the Body is VASER® Liposuction Used?
VASER® standard liposuction is used on areas of the body with excess fat resistant to diet and exercise. Common problem areas treated by VASER® standard liposuction include:
- Male Chest Reduction (Gynecomastia)
Some patients choose to treat one problem area while others opt for a more all-over effect by having the procedure in two or more areas of the body. A consultation with a doctor specializing in standard VASER® liposuction such as Dr. Williams is the best way to ensure the procedure(s) will lead to the desired results.
Who is a Candidate for VASER® Liposuction?
