If you have ever considered undergoing a Vaser liposuction procedure, then you have probably asked many questions about what exactly this type of cosmetic surgery entails. Vaser is a very specific type of ultrasonic liposuction that also falls under the general umbrella of tumescent procedures. The following article will review three of the most common questions asked by patients before a procedure.
Question #1: Is Vaser liposuction painful? The answer to this is a strong and emphatic no. Vaser is an extremely low impact operation which uses a combination of local anesthetic, injection, and ultrasonic waves to break up and flush out the fat. There are very few, if any, cosmetic fat removal surgeries that have less of an impact than this one.
Question #2: How much recovery time do I need after a Vaser operation? Very little. In fact, most of the time after a patient has undergone this cosmetic procedure they can walk right out of the office. Many times the only side effects are minor swelling and occasionally bruising, but sometimes not even any bruises.
Question #3: Who should consider Vaser liposuction? The answer to this is similar to many of the other types of liposuction that are available to consumers. This isn’t some magic bullet to weight loss, it’s the type of treatment that can help sculpt the last part of a body of someone who is already in fairly good shape. This is not a way for the heavily obese to lose weight.
These are three of the most common questions that are going to be asked by many consumers, and hopefully this article helped to answer your inquiries.
