VASERsmooth™ procedures can be performed while the patient is awake or under general anaesthesia.
First, the area to be treated is filled with a special saline solution that helps numb the site and shrink blood vessels. This solution temporarily expands the volume of the area, making the fat cells easier to target and remove.
The physician then uses a series of small, thin probes to target the fat with ultrasound. The energy breaks apart the fat while preserving surrounding tissue, resulting in less bruising and pain than traditional, more invasive cosmetic procedures.
A special cutting edge on the probes then breaks the hardened connective tissue that causes the typical uneven appearance of the skin associated with cellulite. The result is a smooth, natural-looking result.
Specially designed thin suction tubes, called VentX Cannulas, are used to remove the unwanted fat from the body.
As the VASER Liposelection and VASERsmooth™ procedures preserve the integrity of the fat when removed, it is an excellent choice for patients who want to use their own fat to further smooth out the area being treated or to volumize and contour another part of their body such as the buttocks, breasts, hands and face.
