Advantages of VASER Liposuction - Long Beach
Dr. Hicks in Beverly Hills, Long Beach, and Los Angeles, California, is now proud to offer you VASER® liposelection. An acronym for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance, VASER® is a liposuction technology that employs ultrasonic energy. Unlike traditional forms of Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction (UAL), VASER® liposelection greatly reduces pain, bruising, and swelling.
VASER® liposuction procedures allow Dr. Hicks to offer you results that are smoother and better contoured than results from traditional UAL techniques.
Ultrasonic energy, or ultrasound, (that is, sound vibrations too high for us to hear) is also used for looking at unborn babies, cleaning teeth, and removing cataracts. Now liposuction procedures use it to emulsify, or break-up fat cells beneath the skin.
More precise results
The VASER® liposuction technique is unique in that it allows Dr. Hicks to target fat, while leaving nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue intact. This enables him to more precisely select what is being removed from the body and allows for better-designed contours.
Treats more delicate areas
Since Dr. Hicks has more precision with VASER® technology, he can remove fat from more delicate areas of the body:
- Inner thighs
Adjacent tissue that could have been affected with previous UAL techniques are left undisturbed by VASER®.
When a traditional Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction (UAL) procedure is performed, the ultrasonic energy can be so intense that it burns the skin and damages non-fatty tissues. The VASER® technology uses a specialized grooved probe that emits controlled ultrasonic energy. By targeting only fat, this greatly reduces the chances of burning the skin or damaging non-fatty tissues.
In order to determine if you are a good candidate for a liposuction procedure using VASER® technology, schedule an initial liposuction consultation with Dr. Hicks in Beverly Hills, Long Beach, or Los Angeles California. At your consultation Dr. Hicks can work with you to determine what areas you want to have improved, and discuss what results you will see following the procedure.
