New Study Reveals VASER(R) Lipo to be the New Standard of Care for Body Contouring and Fat Transfer Procedures
Date:8/25/2009

LOUISVILLE, Colo., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- According to a recent study published in the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal, the official journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, VASER Lipo has been clinically proven to be a safe and effective treatment option for fat transfer procedures. The lead researchers at Stanford University demonstrated VASER Lipo to be an enhanced fat removal and transfer system compared to traditional suction-assisted liposuction. The study's findings illustrate that VASER Lipo removes and delivers sterile and viable fat primed for re-injection into areas of the body that require plumping, such as the face, buttocks and breasts.

"The VASER Lipo System is unlike any other device in that it emulsifies the fat and removes it in small clumps of cells. This emulsion re-injects more smoothly and easily than fat harvested via traditional liposuction," said Dr. Robert Schwartz, a plastic surgeon in private practice in Dallas, TX.

The Stanford University study investigated tissue samples of both male and female subjects between the ages of 18 and 65 who underwent lipoplasty of the abdomen, back and thigh regions. Detailed cellular viability analysis was performed on tissues collected from 5 patients, each having undergone VASER Lipo and suction-assisted liposuction on one area of the body. The researchers found little or no differences at the cellular level between the two treatments, leading researchers to conclude that VASER Lipo, a third generation ultrasound device, is just as effective in yielding viable fat cells as suction-assisted devices.

The study's findings dispute the common misunderstanding that VASER Lipo's ultrasonic energy destroys fat cells and prohibits the cells from successfully being re-injected during fat transfer procedures. Instead, many physicians assert VASER Lipo could be better for fat transfer procedures due to the fine cellular emulsion that is created through ultrasound action. The results of the study further support VASER Lipo as a safe and effective alternative to traditional liposuction.

About Fat Transfer

Fat transfer is a method used for contouring the face and body and restoring lost skin tissue due to aging or scarring. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgery, more than 46,000 total fat transfer procedures were performed in 2008. During fat transfer surgery, fat cells are transferred from one area of the body to another. As an alternative to cosmetic dermal fillers, fat transfer is becoming a popular procedure to fill in wrinkles, fine lines or other depressions in the skin caused by surgery, aging, acne or trauma. Fat transfer can also be used to refine, enhance and contour the face, lips, buttocks and breasts. Since fat transfer uses your body's own tissues, the body does not reject the cells. The result of fat transfer surgery is a soft and natural look.
