Get In Touch
VASER is a tool utilized in liposuction which uses ultrasound waves to break up and liquefy fat. It stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. So you can see why we call it Vaser! The Vaser device is more effective in extracting fat from fibrous areas-Such as flanks and male breasts- or in areas with previous liposuction where scar prevents efficient removal of fat. It also has the advantage of providing some element of skin retraction. Liposuction can lead to loosening of tissue which can cause contour deformities and additional loose skin. The Vaser device has some effect on improving skin tone and liposuction areas. This patient had previous laser liposuction. She wanted additional improvements. Because laser liposuction generally results in significant scarring of the adipose tissue, the Vaser device is more effective than traditional techniques. The Vaser liposuction still involves standard liposuction techniques to remove the fat as the Vaser is the first step to emulsify the fat followed by mechanical removal with suction. Dr. Lyle utilizes power assisted liposuction in conjunction with Vaser. This patient had what can be described as "mid definition " Liposuction which highlights some contours but still leaves a soft appearance. High-definition liposuction generally goes even further to outline muscle anatomy and is ideal for patients who are not overweight, have good skin tone and generally good underlying muscle definition.
