Liposuction of Lower Extremities and Buttocks



Vaser-assisted lipoplasty (VAL) presents a fundamental change in the treatment and subsequent removal of targeted fatty tissues. The advantage of Vaser mode is that the peak energy is delivered in short burst (the “on” condition) and is strong enough to emulsify fatty tissue while the average energy delivered over time is reduced compared to continuous mode. Vaser technology and Vaser technique are described.
