Founded in 1998, Sound Surgical Technologies placed its first VASER Lipo System on the market in March 2001. An alternative to traditional tumescent liposuction, the VASER -- Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance -- Lipo System uses advanced ultrasonic energy to selectively break apart unwanted fat, while preserving other important connective tissue. VASER Lipo physicians report smooth, predictable results, improved skin retraction and fast patient recovery. With VASER Lipo, physicians can perform a wide range of body contouring applications -- from significant fat reduction to precise sculpting on all areas of the body. More than 70,000 procedures have been performed worldwide using the VASER System.
