LOUISVILLE, Colo., Sept. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- As technologies for fat removal become more advanced, physicians now have a superior choice in not only reshaping the body but also recycling the fat to further enhance appearance.
According to the most recent statistics from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, liposuction and injectable filler treatments are among the two most popular invasive and non-invasive cosmetic procedures in the U.S. The VASER Lipo® System, one of the most respected body contouring technologies on the market, is the cosmetic enhancement tool of choice among top physicians who have patients who want both of these procedures in one appointment.
"My patients appreciate results and convenience. VASER Lipo technology allows advanced body shaping and fat transfer in one appointment, with outstanding results," said Dr. Robert Schwartz of Dallas, TX. "For many patients, fat transfer is becoming a preferred method for enhancement, because it offers a natural alternative to implants and commercial fillers."
The option of injectable fat was introduced a decade ago, but soon disappeared as physicians were frustrated with lack of long-lasting results. Because fat was extracted through standard liposuction and surgical procedures, the fat cells were often damaged and did not provide a predictable result.
The VASER Lipo System features gentle ultrasonic energy that uses sound waves to selectively target unwanted fat. The FDA-cleared device uses small probes that emit ultrasound energy to gently break apart fatty tissue for easy removal without destroying the fat cells themselves. This means physicians can immediately remove, harvest and re-inject the fat to contour and augment other parts of the body, including the face, hands, breasts and buttocks.
