History of Laser and Vaser Liposuction
Liposuction is also prevalent as lipoplasty which is a cosmetic procedure that encompasses breaking up of the fat cells and removing it out from the body. Most liposuction procedures are used to remove the fat from various parts of the body like abdomen, thighs, buttocks, neck, chin and backs of the arms, etc. Liposuction uses a specially designed instrument to remove the fat from the body which is popular as a cannula. The cannula is inserted under the skin and with the help of a vacuum suction, the liquefied fat is then removed from the body. Liposuction is a comparatively safe procedure which has helped numerous people in precise targeting and removing the isolated deposits of the fat from their body. Liposuction in Mumbai is considered as a more or less a least invasive procedure. However, with time various liposuction techniques have evolved and improved to be one of the least invasive procedure, without involving any downtime. Laser and Vaser Liposuction are one such improved liposuction techniques.
History of Vaser liposuction:
An Italian gynaecologist first invented liposuction in the year 1974, which has undergone through several improvements in technologies by a French physician during the late 1970s and it soon became one of the most popular liposuction procedures in the United States during the 1980s. Then Dr Jeffrey A Klein helped to improve the liposuction techniques which was termed as Tumescent Liposuction in the year 1985. Then further improvements in the Liposuction techniques introduced Vaser liposuction which was first fashioned by an experienced plastic surgeon Dr Alfredo Hoyos from Bogota, Columbia. The history of Vaser Liposuction can be well assumed with a comparative analysis of the traditional liposuction which according to many specialists is the origin of the procedure. Vaser Liposuction is still considered as one of the most advanced technology.
Vaser Liposuction is a type of Liposuction which is typically performed under general anaesthesia and takes the same time as that of traditional liposuction. The procedure involves removing fat from certain parts of the body by sculpting the body and helping to accomplish a smooth skin appearance. The desired area is injected with a saline solution which helps to break down the fatty tissues from the body, using an ultrasound technician. This procedure is considered as absolutely safe since it removes the fat from the body without causing any harm to the other nerves and tissues thus diminishing the chances of swelling, bruising and recovery time. The most problematic areas like arms, buttocks, thighs, abdomen, back, breasts can be treated with Vaser liposuction.
History of Laser Liposuction:
Liposuction was always under constant improvement and then practitioners became interested in the use of lasers to treat the fat deposits as an alternative to traditional liposuction. In the year 1992, Dr Apfelberg introduced the first Yag laser liposuction. In spite of its capability of removing fat from certain areas of the body and best results, the procedure did not become a popular one. However, at the beginning of the 21stcentury, the surgeons of the South America started to publish studies demonstrating the advantages and results of the laser liposuction procedure. Soon after this, an Italian company helped laser liposuction procedure to get an FDA approval for a laser device. Laser liposuction is also popular as Smartlipo in recent days.

Later on, Smartlipo was introduced in the UK in the year 2006 where the laser liposuction procedure was performed alone without any additional procedures. laser liposuction is one of the best liposuction procedures that involves the least recovery period and not only removes the targeted fatty tissues from the body but also helps in skin tightening.
The laser liposuction uses an optical laser fibre that is as thin as a human hair which helps in melting the fat cells and that targets the areas with extreme precision. This procedure liquefies the fat which is then removed with a cannula. The cannula used in laser liposuction is about one fourth the size of the cannula that is used in a traditional liposuction procedure. The benefits of laser liposuction involve, targeting the fat cells precisely which helps the surgeons in fine line sculpting for detailing, an increased precision means less risk of damaging the connective tissues and blood vessels, involves no stitches and the risk of infection or scarring is reduced. Most importantly, the post-surgical swelling is often the result of fluid accumulation, but laser technique causes less bleeding and bruising.
