Seven facts about VASER High-Definition Liposuction

Body contouring with liposuction

The primary goal behind any liposuction procedure is to further contour and sculpt areas by removing excess fat. It’s no secret that men and women who seek a “little assistance” with their physiques may often turn to liposuction to take their body to the next level. Liposuction can take a few inches off the body, especially in targeted areas such as the waist, hips, or thighs. However, it is important to note that liposuction of any kind is not a weight loss solution. Much like traditional liposuction, which also focuses on fat extraction, VASER liposuction adds another layer to further sculpt and contour those target areas.

VASER ultrasound technology

Dr. Katzen is able to help his Beverly Hills patients who are looking to eliminate excess fat by implementing state-of-the-art VASER liposuction which uses ultrasound technology to breakdown unwanted fat cells. Once the ultrasound frequency waves have done their job, the target area is massaged and sculpted by extracting the pockets of fat through the suctioning process. Dr. Katzen can then further sculpt the area to give patients optimal results.

LipoSelection VASER device

Dr. Katzen uses advanced VASER liposuction technology that gently loosens fat with sound waves. The target area is injected with a numbing saline solution which also helps to shrink blood vessels. This solution also expands the volume in the target area making it easier to remove unwanted fat cells. Tiny incisions allow for the small probes from the LipoSelection device to be inserted to generate the ultrasound vibrations which break up the fat cells. Those fat cells are then extracted with the cannula instrument much like with traditional liposuction.

Benefits of VASER liposuction

VASER body contouring offers a variety of benefits versus traditional liposuction such as:

  • More minimally invasive
  • Less pain and discomfort
  • Less scarring
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Fewer side effects with bruising or swelling
  • More contouring and definition in target areas
  • VASER liposuction targets multiple areas of the body

VASER liposuction can penetrate deep into the layers of skin to reach excess fatty tissue. Thanks to a more precise technique, surrounding healthy tissue, blood vessels, and nerves are left untouched making it a lower risk procedure. VASER technology has shown successful results in areas of the body such as the abdomen, back, flanks, thighs, buttocks, chest, and arms. By dissolving the fat through VASER liposuction ultrasound technology versus traditional liposuction, it makes it easier for a plastic surgeon like Dr. Katzen to sculpt and contour around certain muscle groups, giving patients more definition.

Less downtime with VASER liposuction

Patients can enjoy their new look with a shorter recovery period. This breakthrough method of fat removal via ultrasound allows for a more advanced body sculpting approach so patients can look more muscular and fit with less downtime. Patients can begin to enjoy their new, more sculpted look sooner rather than later after the swelling subsides and the skin tightens.

Candidates for VASER liposuction

Candidates for this less invasive form of liposuction are individuals at or near their ideal body weight. Much like traditional liposuction, patients who live a healthy lifestyle and are physically fit, yet still have some trouble spots of excess fat can greatly benefit from the VASER High Definition liposuction technology. It can be the answer for men and women in Beverly Hills who have reached their weight goal but want to further sculpt certain areas to achieve their aesthetic goals as well.
