Body contouring procedures are the different processes that are used to remove stubborn fat deposits from the body. They are used to remove fat from parts of the body that you are unable to address with exercise and diet. Traditional liposuction and Vaser liposuction are types of body contouring procedures that are designed to remove stubborn body fat deposits.
Traditional liposuction is a surgical procedure that is use to remove fat through suction. It usually involves making small incisions in the targeted area and a saline solution is added to loosen the fat cells. Then a cannula is inserted into the incisions while using an aspirator to suction out fat cells. Traditional liposuction is used to permanently remove excess fat from the body but it usually causes small internal injuries.
With the advancement in technology, an improved form of liposuction, the VASER liposuction had been designed. Vaser liposuction is an ultrasound assisted liposuction that has been shown to be effective for removing fat and it is also safer. VASER liposuction uses ultrasound waves to loosen body fat in place of the traditional movement of the cannula.
Vaser liposuction is minimally invasive. It uses ultrasound waves to break down fat deposits in the targeted area and the fat cells are liquefied before removing them from the body. This procedure doesn’t cause any harm to the body.
Benefits of Vaser liposuction over traditional liposuction
Vaser liposuction unlike the traditional liposuction does not cause any injury to the tissues, blood vessels and nerves of the body.
Vaser liposuction stimulates the secretion of collagen which results in production of smooth and tight skin. And as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle after the procedure, you are going to enjoy good skin retraction.
Apart from removing fat, Vaser liposuctiongives an excellent shape to the body than traditional liposuction.
Vaser liposuction is mildly invasive and it requires very minimal recovery time. But the traditional liposuction requires more recovery time due to possible internal injuries.
Vaser liposuction unlike the traditional liposuction is pain-less and it does not include any forceful extraction of fat. It is more comfortable and does not lead to post-surgical trauma.
Vaser liposuction is suitable for those who do not have large fat deposits to remove but are looking for sculpting in smaller areas. Traditional liposuction cannot be used for sculpting in small areas of the body.
Traditional liposuction causes irregular deposits of fat which may form lumps or blood clot on your skin. But Vaser liposuction improves the skin elasticity and it also helps the skin to adapt to the contours quickly.
Vaser liposuction does not leave any suction or scars but traditional liposuction usually leaves scars from the incisions. And these scars may take a while to fade away.
Vaser liposuction does not have any side effects except for small itching and swellings. Traditional liposuction has many side effects which include lumps, blood clot and internal injuries.
