Liposuction is the process of surgically removing unwanted fat from the body. Whether it’s on the hips, thighs, waist or another area of the body, liposuction can give your body the smooth contours you’ve always wanted. While liposuction is a relatively simple procedure for an experienced specialist to perform, recovering from the traditional approach to this procedure often involves a significant amount of pain.

The reason that consistent pain for weeks or even months is common after traditional liposuction is because this process involves inserting a surgical device and then using it to suck out the unwanted fat. Because this device goes directly through the skin and then into the fat, it’s not uncommon to experience lingering pain.

If you’re interested in improving the shape of your body with the help of liposuction but aren’t sure that you want to deal with pain on an ongoing basis, you may be the ideal candidate for Vaser liposuction.

How Does Vaser Liposuction Work?

It’s important to understand that Vaser liposuction still involves having a surgical instrument inserted through your skin. Once this device has penetrated the skin, it uses a suction process to remove the unwanted fat. What makes Vaser different and desirable to many people interested in liposuction is prior to the suction process, an ultrasound device is used to break down fat cells. This is accomplished by using a small probe that transmits sound energy and subsequently liquifies the targeted cells.

The main effect of using ultrasound technology is that it breaks down the actual fat cells that are going to be suctioned out of the body. By breaking down those cells, the suction process isn’t nearly as invasive or hard on the body.

Is Vaser Liposuction Safe?

As with any medical procedure, there are certain risks associated with this form of liposuction. Swelling, skin burns, numbness, minimal bleeding, infection and bruising are the most common risks of Vaser liposuction. With the exception of skin burns, all of those risks apply to standard liposuction as well.

Extensive research and testing has concluded that when done by an experienced specialist, the overall risks for Vaser liposuction are very minimal. Because the ultrasound process only targets fat cells, the other tissue surrounding fat isn’t damaged in any way.

Since this form of liposuction is so effective at reducing pain and downtime during recovery, it’s an excellent option for anyone who wants to reap the benefits of liposuction without worrying about having their schedule interrupted for an extended period of time.
