Traditional Lipo vs Vaser Lipo
Liposuction is an effective fat removal surgery that reshapes the body but it is not a weight loss method. It is a way to remove excess fat from the abdomen, flanks, hips, and neck area which is why it is sometimes called a body contouring operation. This safe method is highly preferred by patients who want to get rid of their stubborn fat cells. In addition to the fact that liposuction is a safe method, this method leaves almost no scars. Liposuction is a permanent method unless there is too much weight change, so this is a one-time investment with a lifetime guarantee if you follow instructions correctly. It should be noted that liposuction does not eliminate skin surface irregularities or cellulite problems or it is not a weight loss alternative. The reason for explaining this is to help you with your expectations from liposuction treatment and not be surprised about your likely result. After the liposuction operation, according to your skin elasticity you may have loose or sagging skin so, you should consult your doctor in detail regarding your treatment plan. There are different types of Liposuction techniques like Traditional Lipo, Laser Lipo, and Vaser Lipo so, which one is the most effective for body contouring?
Traditional Liposuction is performed under general anesthesia to remove the excess fat with the help of a cannula device and tumescent fluid is injected into the area to break up the fat deposits. Traditional Lipo removes large amounts of excess fat so, it is highly preferred by patients for many years. It can be applied to the areas; of the abdomen, flanks, back, thighs, buttocks, and arms. In addition to these primary areas, traditional lipo is used for male breast reduction which is also called gynecomastia, and in some parts of the face like cheeks and chin. It is a way of contouring the body and enhancing the natural beauty but after liposuction post-operative instructions should be followed. The corset (garment or faja) is important for the aftercare treatment, it helps to shape the body. In recent years, new liposuction methods have begun to be preferred in addition to traditional liposuction like Laser and Vaser Lipo and it is hard to understand the difference between them. It is always better to get an opinion from experienced surgeons.
Laser Liposuction is also a fat reduction operation that uses laser energy and eliminates the fat cells by melting them. These liquid fat cells are drained through small tubes and help to contour the body. Laser Lipo is performed in the same areas as traditional lipo but it is a less invasive technique and requires less recovery time. While traditional lipo is performed on larger areas, Laser lipo can perform on small areas where stubborn fats are there. Laser Lipo provides you with a firmer and tighter result, this laser-guided liposuction also has less bruising. Laser lipolysis is one of the most safest and effective skin-tightening procedures with the help of laser technology. This melting method stimulates collagen and elastin and gives you firmness. Laser Lipo is also FDA-approved so, it is a completely safe method.
Vaser (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) Liposuction method is performed through ultrasonic sound waves to liquefy the excess fat cells and remove them easily. This minimally invasive procedure is less traumatic and causes fewer bruises and does not damage other cells. Vaser Lipo targeted areas are the same Laser Lipo method and this procedure also improves skin tightening. Vaser Lipo is not a weight loss surgery method like all Lipo techniques so people whose BMI is high are not good candidates for Vaser Liposuction. It is a selective fat-targeting technique and helps to reduce cellulite, unlike traditional liposuction. Vaser Lipo also known as Liposculpture, sculpts the body in the desired way.
