How to Choose a Vaser Liposelection Specialist

If you're looking for a way to remove unwanted fatty deposits, you may be interested in Vaser Liposelection. Vaser is a unique form of liposuction that has recently been receiving a lot of attention.

What Is Vaser Liposelection

Vaser is an acronym for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. This means that Vaser uses ultra-sonic sound waves to break up unwanted fat. Many practitioners of Vaser prefer it for fat reduction and body shaping. This is because the fat is emulsified by the sound waves, allowing it to be sucked out of the body quicker and easier. This reduces blood loss, bruising and even the duration of the procedure. Finding the right doctor to perform this operation is vital.

Finding a Provider

Look for a licensed doctor or surgeon to perform a Vaser Liposelection. Do not accept treatment from cosmeticians or other non-licensed medical personnel. Also keep in mind a practitioner may be hard to find. Many doctors who have the ability to perform Vaser Liposelection don't do it. The current Vaser is the third incarnation of the procedure. Earlier versions were the cause of many unpleasant complications and even skin damage. However, the modern phase of Vaser is considered to be much safer. There are licensed practitioners of Vaser in most major metropolitan areas, with particularly strong concentrations in California, Pennsylvania, Texas and Florida. 

What to Look for

Only licensed and experienced cosmetic surgeons or liposuction physicians should perform Vaser treatments. It is not necessary for the doctor to be a surgeon to offer Vaser. Many MDs are also qualified to perform the procedure. Cosmetic surgery of any kind can be considered a very complicated art form. Just because a doctor will perform the procedure does not indicate the quality of his technique. This applies to Vaser. Make sure to find out how much experience a doctor has with this procedure, and ask to see photos of successful work. Ask frank questions about what has gone wrong in the past, and how the doctor has compensated for those errors.

Vaser liposelection is largely intended for minor reductions. It isn't a weight loss cure or a substitute for a healthy lifestyle. If you are interested in Vaser, talk to your current doctor to see if you are a candidate.
