Smart Liposuction and Vaser Liposuction-What’s The Big Deal in Bethesda, Maryland, Mclean, Virginia and Washington, DC?

Posted on April 28, 2016 under Uncategorized

We often get the question – what’s the difference between regular liposuction, laser liposuction (‘smart lipo’), vaser liposuction and ultrasonic liposuction? These all differ from regular liposuction in that these newer techniques offer additional skin tightening. This is accomplished by delivering high energy (either by laser light or ultrasonic sound waves) internally to the tissues before the fat is actually removed. This energy helps to break up the fat cells and tighten the overlying skin in both men (especially male gynecomastia) and women. This can lead to more complete fat removal and a smoother result. These techniques can help improve the result in areas where there may be a concern of skin laxity after liposuction. As an added benefit there seems to be less bleeding and bruising.
