Many overweight people have found to their dismay that losing those unsightly layers of adipose tissues proves to be ten times more difficult than acquiring unwanted fat. All kinds of measures from idiosyncratic diets to joint and muscle straining exercise regimens to what-have-you are tried. At the end of the day, that Twiggy look remains elusive. There is hope. The Vaser liposuction is a means to successfully extract fat from specific areas of your body like arms, hips, chests, buttocks, necks, knees, breasts, chins, abdomens, backs, ankles, waists, inner thighs, outer thighs, faces and more. Liposuction per se is not new. In fact, ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) techniques were used in the 1980s and 1990s. Advances in technology and technique designed to promote precision and efficiency that benefit both patients and physicians helped create unique, safe, effective, intelligent contouring alternatives and bring them to patients throughout the world. By emulsifying targeted fat cells, Vaser liposuction enables surgeons to perform fat extraction with less tearing of the surrounding tissues, thus reducing blood loss, pain and bruising. Vaser liposuction is a preferred option for patients undergoing both small and large-volume fat removal, and for fat removal in tight, fibrous areas such as the back and posterior flanks. Traditional liposuction is a more invasive procedure and the recovery period is a little extended as the patient has to be operated on under general anesthesia. In fact, both suction assisted liposuction as well as power assisted liposuction, the end result can be a little disappointing since it can leave the skin surface lumpy and bumpy. Important tissue structures like nerves, blood vessels and collagen can suffer serious damage by being torn. There is a word of caution: Vaser liposuction is not suitable for patients with diabetes, weakened immune systems, heart or lung disease, or a history of blood clots. It is not a weight loss procedure and is best suited for treating specific areas that do not respond to lifestyle changes.
