A Non- Invasive Body Sculpting Technique That Really Works?!

Liposuction is the most common form of fat removal through surgery. It is usually suggested to patients who are within a 'normal' weight range for their height, when lifestyle changes fail to achieve the desired results. This means it's a sculpting, and not a weight loss procedure. There are various ways in which this procedure can be done but the latest technology that has increasingly become the most preferred method is VASER. At Da Vinci Aesthetics, VASER Lipo is offered with a range of competitive prices and the assurance of being under the care of highly trained and experienced surgeons and healthcare staff. VASER actually stands for Vibration Amplification Sound Energy at Resonance. To explain it simply, ultrasonic energy vibrations are created to shake off the fat cells in the body and allow for more precise contouring. If you're considering VASER Lipo, here are four pros and cons to help you weigh your decision.

PROS

1. Minimally Invasive
Unlike traditional liposuction wherein you have to go under the knife, VASER uses only a small probe to deliver ultrasonic vibrations to break up and remove fat deposits in the target areas, therefore, leaving the surrounding cells, blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues unharmed. A liquid is then injected to emulsify the fats and be viable for suction through a small cannula. 

2. Less Painful
Because smaller incisions are made, the skin is mostly unaffected. This leads to reduced bleeding, swelling and soreness observed after the procedure.

3. Shorter Recovery Period
Immediately after the procedure, the patient is allowed to rest for a minimum of twelve hours before resuming daily routine. Keep in mind though, that strenuous activities should be avoided for two to three weeks.

4. Better Sculpting
With a VASER lipo, only fats in problem areas are targeted instead of removing them in a general area. Because of this ability to detail, there is a capacity to achieve a more contoured look and make problem areas appear smoother after the treatment.

CONS

1. Scarring
Although VASER uses ultrasonic vibrations to break up the fatty deposits in the body, this procedure also involves the surgeon making small incisions to the skin in order to reach the fat cells and apply the ultrasonic vibrations through a probe. Because of the extensive nature of the treatment, scarring is a possibility. Scars, however, are less visible over a period of time.

2. Numbness
After a VASER procedure, the patient will feel a certain amount of numbness in the treated area along with skin tightness. This reasonable pain and discomfort can be felt for several days but eventually wears off.

3. Inflammation
As with all surgical procedures, chances of inflammation may occur. The severity of this will depend on how your body responds to the treatment. Medication is usually prescribed during the recovery process to alter this common side effect.

4. Delayed Visibility of Results
Because the body needs to heal over a significant period of time, the best and final results of a VASER Lipo can be seen several months after your first treatment. Contour irregularities are expected while the remaining fat settles into position. The wait may be long compared to other liposuction methods, but it will definitely be worth it.
