Vaser liposuction emulsifies the fat of a patient to make the removal of it easier via liposuction. Vaser lipo uses ultrasonic energy to break up the fat targeted for removal in areas such as the chin, arms, thighs, abdomen, knees and neck. The surgeon fills the area scheduled to be treated with a saline solution that numbs the area and shrinks the blood vessels. The doctor then uses a small probe that emits sound energy at a high frequency to break up the fat on contact while providing minimal damage to the surrounding tissue. Once the fat is broken apart, it is extracted using liposuction.
