Liposuction with Definition
- Posted on: Mar 15 2022
Liposuction is one of the world’s most popular cosmetic surgeries because it removes stubborn pockets of unwanted fat that are almost impossible to remove with changes in diet and targeted exercise. Dr. Amirlak performs tumescent liposuction using SAFELipo techniques.
He also performs an enhancement to traditional liposuction known as VASER high-definition 3D liposuction. In VASER liposuction, ultrasound energy is added to aid in breaking loose the fat cells before they are suctioned away. VASER high-definition 3D liposuction gives Dr. Amirlak the ability to not only remove the unwanted fat, but to also sculpt the treated areas.
What is VASER high-definition 3D liposuction?
Liposuction has been an enormously popular and effective method for removing stubborn pockets of unwanted fat since it first debuted in the U.S. in the 1980s. Every year, the body contouring improvements gained through liposuction make it one of the top three cosmetic surgeries in the U.S.
VASER high-definition liposuction simply improves on the procedure.
VASER is an acronym for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance. But you can simply call it high-frequency ultrasound energy. With VASER liposuction, ultrasound energy has been added to gently break down the fat cells in the treatment areas. This energy dislodges the fat cells, making them easier to remove and eliminating much of the trauma that can occur with traditional liposuction where the cannula must be moved back and forth aggressively to break loose the fat cells.
What’s the difference between VASER liposuction and traditional liposuction?
It’s the addition of the high-frequency ultrasound energy that separates VASER liposuction from traditional methods. As noted above, this energy helps to break loose the unwanted fat cells before they are suctioned away with the cannula.
Who is the ideal candidate for VASER high-definition liposuction?
First things first, VASER high-definition 3D liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure; it’s a body contouring procedure. All liposuction methods are meant only to remove stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and targeted exercise. Dr. Amirlak requires his VASER 3D liposuction patients to be within 10 percent of their ideal weight. This maximizes the patient’s results, as Dr. Amirlak can sculpt the areas where he removes the fat.
Just as important for candidacy is the elasticity in your skin. Your skin needs to still have elasticity because when the fat is removed the skin needs to tighten down to its new slimmer contour. Yes, the ultrasound energy does provide some skin tightening, but this only occurs if your skin still has elasticity. If your skin is loose and sagging, liposuction will only exacerbate the problem by removing fat under it. In these cases, it would be better to have Dr. Amirlak perform a tummy tuck.
