A study has found that Vaser Lipo treatment demonstrated 53% improvement in skin retraction per mL of aspirate removed relative to the standard method of liposuction. There was also a 26% reduction in blood loss.
This is the first study to demonstrate statistically significant and clinically relevant improvements in a new Lipoplasty technology.
“Physicians have been reporting skin tightening benefits and reduced blood loss with the VASER Lipo System since the technology was released in 2002,” said Dan Goldberger, CEO of Sound Surgical Technologies LLC.
“This study now provides empirical evidence of yet another advantage of using VASER ultrasonic energy in all body contouring procedures.”
The study involved twenty female patients between the ages of 20 and 48 who received treatment with traditional liposuction and VASER Lipo in one or more anatomical regions that included the upper arms, upper back, flanks, outer thighs, and inner thighs for a total of 33 regions. Skin retraction was measured using changes in UV tattoos placed prior to surgery.
VASER ultrasonic energy is able to selectively liquefy fat while preserving important tissue structures vital to natural skin tightening. By preserving nerves, blood vessels and collagen, physicians report also experience minimal to no pain and bruising post-operatively allowing for a fast return to normal activities.
