Whether you’d like to lose a few pounds in traditional areas — your waist, thighs and bottom — or finely sculpt your arms, neck or chest, VASER Lipo gives you the results you want.
Using a technique called LipoSelection®, VASER Lipo targets specific areas of the body. Ultrasonic waves break up and separate fat cells for removal, while leaving vital tissues unharmed.
VASER Lipo is so precise and gentle that patients report dramatic reshaping with little downtime. Dr. Michael Nagy is has advanced training in this technique. VASER Lipo will contour your body like no other.
The VASER Lipo Difference
Unlike traditional liposuction, VASER Lipo results in less trauma and fast recovery.
With VASER Lipo, you can expect:
- Realistic curves and definition, even for hard-to-fix spots
- Easy removal of large quantities of fat
- Precise sculpting of delicate areas of the body
- Minimally invasive procedures that can be delivered in a comfortable, clinical setting
- Fast recovery times
- Smooth, tight results
Below we show you the difference between VASER Liposuction and Traditional Liposuction:
VASER® ultrasound-assisted liposuction uses specially designed probes that deliver ultrasound waves into the fat layer to selectively target and emulsify (liquefy) fat.
Other body tissues like blood vessels and nerves are left intact. A specially designed cannula — a thin tube used to remove liquids — is inserted through a small incision to remove the treated fat.
Pro: Selectively targets only the fatty tissue, encouraging smooth, predictable results and fast recovery.
Con: As a newer technology, VASER Lipo is still being adopted by cosmetic surgeons.
Laser-Assisted Liposuction/Laser Lipolysis
Sold as SmartLipo™, CoolLipo™, LipoLite™, ProLipo™, SlimLipo™ and AccuSculpt™, laser-assisted liposuction uses laser thermal energy to destroy fat cells and cauterize surrounding vessels. The burned tissue is then removed with a traditional suction cannula.
Pro: Destroys fat and cauterizes vessels prior to removal to encourage fast recovery.
Con: Only good for small pockets of fat. Can cause thermal damage to important tissues. Tunneling can leave contour irregularities. Fat cannot be used for fat transfer procedures.
Suction-Assisted Liposuction (Traditional Liposuction)
Suction-assisted liposuction is a traditional liposuction method in which the surgeon inserts a cannula (suction probe) through a small incision. The surgeon pushes and pulls the cannula through the fat layer to break up the fat tissue and a suction pump draws the fatty tissue out of the body.
Pro: Most common form of liposuction performed.
Con: Tears out important tissue structures like nerves, blood vessels and collagen leading to potential “lumpy, bumpy” results and long recovery time.
