Ultrasonic technology may advance liposuction results

Article-Ultrasonic technology may advance liposuction results

Plymouth Meeting, Pa. — News source Business Wire reports that a board-certified dermatologist and dermasurgeon here says that VASER Lipo technology is a major advance in the application of ultrasonic technology in cosmetic procedures.

According to Business Wire, Marlene Mash, M.D., says she uses VASER Lipo (also known as LipoSelection) to perform a minimally invasive form of liposuction that liquefies the fat and sculpts targeted areas. She says it creates less tissue trauma and bleeding than conventional techniques, and helps tighten loose skin, which is helpful in conjunction with a traditional lower face and neck lift.

Dr. Mash says the technology produces a natural, youthful appearance with minimal down time.

“VASER Lipo significantly reduces the undermining time in lift procedures and allows me to contour body areas that are difficult to treat with traditional liposuction,” Business Wire quotes Dr. Mash as saying.

Dr. Mash says she makes a 3-mm incision through which the VASER probe is inserted. Ultrasonic energy causes the probe to vibrate and selectively liquefy fatty tissue. According to Dr. Mash, the result is a gentle and less traumatic form of liposuction.

Business Wire notes that Dr. Mash is a member of the American Academy of Dermatology, the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery, the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery and the American Society of Liposuction Surgery.
