The latest method of liposuction is called the VASER system and, for certain areas of the body, it is the best option. Since the system was approved by the FDA in 2002, there have been over 70 thousand procedures done with no serious complications reported.

The VASER system, manufactured by Sound Surgical Technologies, is a third generation ultrasound assisted liposuction (UAL) device. The big change from earlier UAL devices is that this one actually targets fat cells while not disturbing nerves, blood vessels or connective tissue. The VASER system allows the surgeon to use lower power ultrasound waves in areas where the fat cells are close to other types of tissue.

The Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance (or VASER) system procedures have the advantages of better skin retraction, smoother skin and less recovery time. Instead of just reducing circumference, this new system enables the surgeon to actually sculpt the body in ways that were not possible before. Using this system, the surgeon can be so efficient and precise that previously unreachable fat deposits can be delicately removed while important connective tissue and blood vessels is left intact.

This system allows the surgeon to operate on the most delicate areas of the body, like the inner thighs, back, chin, neck and arms. Surgeons have reported that this system produces low to minimal amounts of pain in patients, while keeping swelling and bruising to a minimum. This allows surgeons to use traditional liposuction on larger areas of fat and the new system on more delicate areas.

I found that, after calling a few plastic surgery clinics in my town, that there were several qualified surgeons to choose from, and you will probably have no problem finding several. I also found a few liposuction clinics that specialize in this procedure, so there are probably specialists in your area also.
