Vaser Liposuction Removes More With Less

Posted by Dr. Perry in Liposuction

A recent study in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal (Vol. 28, Issue 4 July/August 2008) revealed that liposuction using Vaser techniques resulted in less blood loss than traditional liposuction. This is exciting news when one considers that the Vaser Liposuction utilizing ultrasound allows the surgeon to remove up to three times more from the back, hips, and flank region according to the study. Vaser Liposuction uses sound energy to create selective fat emulsification. The ultrasound waves are tuned specifically for the fat cell membranes. During the procedure the fat cell’s (adipocyte) membrane starts vibrating at the ultrasound specific frequency and membrane dissolves allowing the fat to be removed as a liquid through gentle suction. As opposed to standard liposuction were the whole cell is removed with a larger cannula and more vigorous movement. We are excited to offer this exciting new technology.

Liposuction remains the most common cosmetic surgical procedure in the United States including Roseville, Folsom, El Dorado Hills, Elk Grove and Sacramento regions. Over 400,000 liposuction procedures were performed last year alone. Ultrasound as used by Dr Charles Perry with the Sound Surgical’s Vaser Liposelection device has allowed patient’s to recover in a more comfortable way. At Chrysalis Cosmetics we offer the Vaser technology as an option for patient’s whom desire the most advanced technology available. We look forward to meeting you and answering your questions in person. Give us a call at 916.273.7435
