With the advancements in medical science and techniques, increasing numbers of qualified surgeons and clinics as well as the growth in the trend of having surgery abroad, cosmetic procedures have became more and more popular as well as more affordable within the last couple of decades.
While some procedures still only appeal to a small demographic, those being sought by a younger demographic such as liposuction/liposculpture are certainly enjoying a significant boom.
Liposuction isn’t a brand new type of treatment. It evolved from work in the late 1960s by surgeons in Europe using techniques to cut away fat, which were limited to regions without many blood vessels due to the amount of bleeding the technique caused. Blunt cannulas linked to suction were introduced in the next decade and the science has continued developing ever since. As new techniques are introduced, the number of list areas that can be targeted with liposuction extend and the quality of the outcome improved hence the popularity of the procedure rises.
In 2015, liposuction surpassed breast augmentation as the most commonly performed cosmetic procedure in the US.
Today, there are over a dozen different liposuction techniques available for patients to chose from and surgeons to utilize. Among them, “High-Definition Vaser Liposuction” is one of the rising stars. Classical liposuction, aka Tumescent liposuction, heavily relies on the brute force applied by the surgeon, as the technique is simply the surgeon breaking down fat pockets with a blunt cannula. This technique isn’t only not suitable for a more thorough work (at least in comparison to the vaser) as using brute force in certain areas would be too risky but it also puts extra stress on the surgeon via increased physical activity, which can cause the surgeon to suffer from fatigue during longer procedures, and as a result more prone to making mistakes.
In Vaser liposuction, the cannula used for breaking down fat and suctioning also emits sound waves to breakdown the fat tissue. VASER is an acronym for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance. This utilization of sound energy enables surgeons to target fat pockets that would be too risky for tumescent liposuction and also allows them to create a better definition or silhouette. With the lack of trauma caused by the brute force, vaser liposuction also allows for more comfortable recovery and a shorter downtime.
Additionally, a number of clinical research papers indicate that the use of sound energy also helps the patients’ skin elasticity to improve after the operation as well.
If you’d like to be considered as a candidate for Vaser Liposuction and would rather not be burdened with the downtime of Tumescent liposuction, our high-def vaser liposuction packages are possibly the right choice for you.
