LOUISVILLE, Colo., Aug. 14 A recent scientific study findsthat VASER Lipo significantly limits blood loss during liposuction whencompared to traditional liposuction alone. The study was published in theJuly/August issue of the "Aesthetic Surgery Journal." The authors concludedthat VASER-assisted lipoplasty should be recommended over traditionalsuction-assisted lipoplasty for patients undergoing large-volume liposuctionprocedures or treatments in very fibrous areas of the body where increasedblood loss is expected.
The study was conducted by Onelio Garcia, Jr. MD and Nirmal Nathan with 57patients. Traditional liposuction was performed on 27 patients, while 30patients underwent the VASER Lipo treatment. The findings showed thattraditional liposuction results in 7.5 times more blood loss compared to theVASER Lipo procedure.
The VASER Lipo System is a third-generation internal ultrasound-assistedlipoplasty device manufactured by Sound Surgical Technologies LLC inLouisville, Colorado. This technology enables physicians to precisely emulsifyfat cells in the body while preserving important tissues like nerves, bloodvessels, and collagen. As a result, VASER Lipo significantly reduces bloodloss, and patients experience minimal pain and rapid recovery.
"We're absolutely thrilled with the results of the study," said SoundSurgical Technologies CEO Dan Goldberger. "VASER Lipo already has several welldocumented clinical advantages, but this particular scientific study adds newlevels of credibility to the benefits of VASER technology over traditionalmethods," concluded Goldberger.
