How is VASER (Ultrasonic Liposuction) performed? What anesthesia is used?
VASER Liposuction is a method based on sound wave energy and selectively breaks down fat. Sound energy is used in many areas of medicine by changing wavelengths. Devices that use different wavelengths are used in internal organ imaging, kidney stone treatment, dentistry and fat dismemberment.
VASER Technology produces liposelective effect only by using wavelengths that break down fat cells. These waves do not damage the surrounding connective tissue, blood vessels and nerves. It is possible to interfere with the fat cells in superficial, intermediate, and deep plans with sound waves. With VASER, it is possible to have a homogeneous and equal effect on each plan, thus reducing the chance of fluctuations and depressions that can be seen in classical liposuction is minimized.
The most important step for VASER Liposuction is examination and determination of which areas to process. Vaser Liposuction procedures, which will be performed in three zones and in limited quantities, can be performed locally or with anesthesia if the patient is half asleep. However, if more fat is to be taken in multiple regions and volume, the full method of sleep, which we call general Anesthesia, should be preferred to increase the comfort of the patient.
Areas with redundancy before VASER Liposuction are identified and marked. Then a special liquid is given to these areas through small half-inch entrance holes. This liquid contains both Local Anesthetic and makes it easier to break down fat cells. With special Probes to transmit sound waves to the oil tissue through the same input holes, vaser is processed and the oils are liquidized. The more fat tissue that is shredded and liquidised is again attracted by special canuls. The procedure is terminated by wearing a special bass suit suitable for the area and the patient's body.
