Liposelection only by Vaser®

When it comes to you body Be Selective. Medical Advances in cosmetic and plastic surgery are remarkable. If you're thinking about a procedure, you owe it to yourself to look at new and progressive techniques.

First, the area to be sculpted is filled with a special saline solution that helps numb the site and shrink the blood vessels (to minimize blood loss and reduce bruising).

This solution wets and fills the area to be treated, making it easier to break up fatty tissue with the Vaser® System's sound energy.

Then, a small probe transmits sound energy (similar to that used for cataract removal from the eye) that fragments fatty tissue on contact, while leaving other important tissues relatively intact.

Finally, gentle suctthe liquefied fat is removed through a gentle suction process designed to minimise damage to surrounding tissues.
