Ultra-Sonic Liposuction by VASER Difference:

LipoSelection by VASER is advanced ultrasound technology unlike anything else available for fat removal because it creates a gentle way of separating fatty tissue before it is removed. LipoSelection specifically targets your body fat with minimal effect on other important body tissue - including nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. The VASER System's ultrasound energy simply bounces off these healthy and vital tissues, leaving them relatively intact as it safely dissolves and gently removes softer fat cells. The treatment is both gentle and highly precise. In fact, LipoSelection allows physicians to work with such precision that they can even shape delicate areas like the face and neck.

Only LipoSelection by VASER first selectively fragments just fat cells and then gently and easily removes them in an emulsified state while leaving other critical tissues relatively undisturbed. This promotes fast recovery, minimizing the pain and bruising typically associated with fat removal procedures while maximizing smooth skin retraction. Most LipoSelection patients report very little discomfort and are able to return to normal activities within days! (Traditional surgical fat removal procedures often entail recovery periods of three to six weeks.)
