About Vaser Liposuction

VASER Liposelection is an advanced body contouring procedure that gives superior results to traditional liposuction and it is associated with greater skin retraction and much less complications.

Liposuction is a surgical technique used to remove stubborn to diet and exercise, unwanted and localized deposits of fatty tissue from various areas of the body.

Hundreds of thousands of people choose to undergo body contouring procedures such as liposuction each year. SFMedica uses the much acclaimed VASER Lipo System to meet patients’ demands for gentle body contouring procedures that produce natural looking results with minimal recovery period.

VASER Liposuction, or LipoSelection, or Lipoplasty is an advanced body contouring procedure that uses gentle ultrasonic energy to selectively target unwanted fat, while preserving other important structures such as blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue. The result is a smooth, even body contour with fast recovery.

Over 100,000 procedures have been performed to date with no serious complications attributed.

How does Vaser Liposuction work?

Fat cells are contained within fat lobules, which are within fat pearls, which are contained within fat sections, which are within fat compartments.

Because fat cells have the ability to change dramatically in size (from 30 to over 100 μm in diameter), they are bound together relatively loosely compared to muscle, fascia, and blood vessel cells.

Fat cell structures are affected by the tissue selective ultra sound action used by the Vaser Lipo System. Ultrasound is uniquely suited to safely dislodging and emulsifying fat which can subsequently be aspirated and removed through a small suction tube.

In addition, the tissue selective properties of ultrasound energy and atraumatic instrumentation utilized in VASER Lipo procedures, preserves the connective tissue matrix structure allowing for smooth, skin contraction.

Why VASER Lipo System?

  • In a recent study published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal, patients treated with VASER Lipo had 7.5 times less blood loss than those treated with traditional liposuction.
  • VASER, which stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance, received FDA Clearance for body contouring in September 2002.
  • VASER Lipo is a trusted body contouring method in a society saturated with fad procedures.
  • Vaser Lipo is the ultimate body sculpting system as apart from removing unwanted localised fat it can also be used to transfer autologous (your own) fat to other areas of your body (e.g. deep wrinkles in the face) where a natural long-standing filling effect is required.
  • Conventional lipoplasty techniques are associated with destruction of fat cells and surrounding tissues, aspiration of large packets of fat cells, and the potential for complications upon fat transfer and reinjection into other areas of the body (e.g. deep facial lines and folds). The VASER Lipo System ensures tissue selectivity and the collection of small packets of viable fat cells for transfer and reinjection yielding excellent long-standing results in a very safe way.
