he major difference between the two procedures is that traditional liposuction uses focused thermal energy to destroy the fat cells in the area that will have liposuction.
Traditional liposuction only releases thermal energy at the end of the probe which causes a tremendous level of heat. As the traditional use of the laser that is focused on one point only, it has more risk of burns. The surrounding vital tissues may be burnt and eventually injured by the intense heat.
On the other hand, VASER liposuction releases energy uniformly. This means that instead of having one end of the probe with high energy, the energy is placed equally around the probe. This allows the VASER to liquefy the fat cells more efficiently than the traditional way of liposuction allowing the liposuction specialist to take out more fat cells compared with traditional liposuction.
A helpful analogy would be that traditional laser liposuction is like cigars while VASER liposuction is like light bulbs. Cigars release intense heat only at the tip of the cigar while a light bulb radiates heat uniformly around its surface.
What are the benefits of VASER liposuction over Traditional liposuction?
- Great fat removal and more systematic at breaking up fat cells.
- Fat cells are left intact for fat transfer procedures like Brazilian Butt Lift.
- Compelling results. VASER liposuction can sculpt patients’ bodies more precisely which leads to more efficient results. The versatility of VASER liposuction also helps it to target different areas of the body.
- Ensure skin tightening. Because of the unified energy distribution of VASER liposuction, the procedure can tighten the skin and Ensure skin tightening better than the traditional way of liposuction.
And the important advantage of VASER liposuction is that the procedure is minimally invasive, there will be reduced risks of complications or injuries during the procedure.
