Vaser Lipo vs Traditional Liposuction
Vaser Liposuction and Traditional Liposuction both have the same goal, to remove fat from the body. But both methods are different and knowing which one is going to be best for you will depend on your own personal circumstances and the desired goal you have in mind.
In most cases, traditional liposuction is performed under general anaesthetic whilst Vaser liposuction is performed under local anaesthetic with sedation.
Traditional liposuction is ideal if you have a larger amount of fat that you wish to remove as Vaser lipo does have a limit on the amount of fat that can removed in a single session. Traditional liposuction does have a limit too but it is significantly bigger.
The recovery time following Vaser liposuction is often significantly shorter than traditional liposuction’s recovery as it is a minimally invasive procedure and the technique used results in less bleeding, pain, and bruising. Vaser Liposuction uses high-frequency ultrasonic wave’s break up and liquefy the targeted fat without damaging the surrounding area.
Vaser liposuction is good for sculpting the body and is very accurate in removing fat from targeted muscle groups and being able to give improved definition around muscles.
Vaser liposuction is also known to be more effective on men as their body tissues are naturally fibrous which can be difficult to target with traditional liposuction. Certain areas on the female body such as hips and bra fat are fibrous as well and would be better treated with vaser liposuction than traditional liposuction.
If you have a good surgeon with the right experience and skills then you can get great results from both treatments. Finding a surgeon you can trust is more important than which technique is being used so be sure to do your research.
