The VASERLipo® Procedure Step by Step
Tumescent Infusion: Tumescent fluid containing small gas bubbles 5 to 10 microns in size is infused throughout targeted fat tissue. Tight junctions between cells within blood vessel walls and connective tissues prevent gas bubbles from interspersing among and affecting these tissues.
Cavitation: Acoustic energy delivered through an ultrasonic probe results in rapid formation and collapse of bubbles in the tumescent fluid, dislodging clusters of intact fat cells with minimal (if any) impact on vessels, nerves and other tissues.
Acoustic Streaming: Grooves on an ultrasonic probe generate strong localized fluid forces, further separating dislodged fat clusters into smaller clumps, which tend to be easier to aspirate and use during fat grafting procedures.
Fat Removal: A small diameter cannula designed to minimize trauma to vessels, nerves, and fibrous tissue matrix is inserted to gently suction out the mixed fat cell and tumescent fluid emulsion
Tissue Remodelling: Adipose tissue removal during liposuction creates a space for retraction to occur. Post-procedure skin retraction is maximized when the superficial fatty layer is “thinned” with minimal trauma to tissues and the elastic subcutaneous connective tissue matrix is preserved. This allows the skin to naturally retract and re-drape to the underlying frame during the healing process.
