VASERsmooth procedure for Cellulite Removal
Cellulite is an extremely common condition amongst women of all shapes and sizes. It appears as dimpled skin and uneven fat deposits most commonly on the thighs, hips, and buttocks.
The cause of cellulite is multifactorial, ranging from genetic origins to hormonal and weight fluctuations. It develops when fat cells protrude through the thin fibrous connective tissue that exists between the skin and the underlying muscles. Some of these "septae" harden over time and contract, creating unsightly dimples and depressions in the skin. With aging, sun damage and frequent weight changes, loss of skin elasticity reveals more surface irregularities and worsening of cellulite, as well.
In order to remove cellulite, several things must be accomplished. First, the superficial fat must be reduced. Second, some of the fibrous septae must be loosened to enable the skin to become flat and smooth, and third, the skin must be tightened to smooth the skin's surface.
Until recently, it was difficult to accomplish this. Several totally non-invasive treatments showed modest and temporary results requiring innumerous treatments. As a world renowned expert in Tumescent, VASER and Laser Liposuction, Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank is enthusiastic and proud to offer the new VASERsmooth procedure, the latest addition to the Vaser Liposuction System which he has used for almost a decade. VASERsmooth permits us to effectively and quickly treat cellulite with quick recoveries and obvious results. The VASERsmooth procedure is performed totally under local anesthesia in our surgically accredited office. Prior to the procedure, if the patient desires, a sedative can be given to relax. Through a few tiny incisions that close without stitches or scars, local anesthesia is then infused under the skin to totally numb the region. Using the thin, ultrasonic 'VASERsmooth' wand designed specifically to be used just under the skin, the VASERsmooth device melts superficial fat, breaks the dimpling fibrous septae and tightens loose skin, resulting in an overall and permanently smoother appearance. After the treatment, a bandage is placed and the patient goes home in no discomfort. Most patients can shower the next day, return to work within 24 hours and exercise in a few days. Dramatic results can be seen in as little as one week and progressively improve over 3-6 months. With only one treatment, results can be achieved safely and cost effectively. VASERsmooth can be performed alone or with additional Tumescent Liposuction treatments for more extensive fat removal on any area of the body.
