Most Common Uses of Vaser Liposelection

Vaser Liposelection is a slimming procedure that uses ultrasounds to sculpt the body and get rid of the extra fat. The procedure can get rid of a limited amount of fat, so this is not suitable for people that need to lose a lot of weight. The most common uses of Vaser Liposelection include fat removal and the definition of muscles, but may also work well in removing man breasts.

Fat Removal

Fat cells are part of a healthy body and if these are expanded, they form deposits of fat that are visible. The fat cells expand when there is an excess number of calories consumed which are not used. Fat deposits form in time and people who overeat or lead a sedentary life are more prone to weight gain.

The Vaser Liposelection can remove fat deposits from different areas of the body, using a high frequency sound energy that assists the procedure. The treatment also involves the injection of a saline fluid that will facilitate the extraction of fat.

The Vaser Liposelection is most commonly used on the following areas:

  • Chin or neck
  • Stomach
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Arms
  • Back, where the procedure is the most effective, due to the fat that is more fibrous than in other areas
  • The face area must be avoided, as the skin is very sensitive; there are other more suitable procedures to remove the fat deposited on the face

Please note that the procedure can only remove a limited amount of fat. Fat deposits may be of two types: fat that is located under the skin and fat that is located under the muscles, also known as visceral fat. The Vaser Liposelection can only remove the subcutaneous fat; the visceral fat can only be removed through exercise or dieting.

To be able to establish the amount of fat that can be extracted through Vaser Liposelection, you can palpate your stomach and feel the muscles (they should feel like a wall) and the fat that covers it (which is softer).

Muscle Definition

Defined muscles are difficult to obtain even if you work out on a regular basis. Some fat deposits may be exercise or diet resistant, and this is where Vaser Liposelection can be helpful.

Vaser Liposelection can extract fat deposits that cover the muscles; after the fat is gone, your muscles will be more visible and you will have a nicely shaped body. You can use Vaser Liposelection to define the abdominal wall, so you can have the six pack look.

Please note that you will be able to see nicely defined muscles only if you have previously worked and trained your muscles.

Gynecomastia Excision

Gynecomastia, or man breasts, can occur in some men and is a condition that may be genetic or caused by aging or excessive weight gain. Having breast may cause a lot of discomfort.

The man breasts can be removed with the Vaser Liposelection procedure and there are high chances that the fat tissue will never grow back.
