New Haven, CT (PRWEB) September 19, 2011
Safe, fast and effective, Yolo Laser Center and Med Spa now offers liposuction by VASER, a state of the art treatment that allows patients to stay awake during the procedure saving both time and shaving the recovery period. Yolo is one of only two med spas in the state to have invested in the procedure for its patients and looks to provide answers to those patients with little opportunity for downtime.
"Engaging in liposuction is a very personal decision for all types of patients. We found that plenty of our patients and spa goers alike wanted to have the procedure, but felt they lacked the time necessary to complete the procedure and the accompanying downtime associated with this type of surgery. Vaser has reduced the time dramatically in recovery, giving our clients a real opportunity to change the way they look and feel," -Nikki Rasmussen, RN and owner of Yolo Laser Center and Med Spa.
Because of Vaser's proprietary system less stress is placed on the body during the procedure allowing patients to stay awake and literally stand and walk out of the treatment room at the conclusion of their liposuction. Many patients read or listen to music. One recent patient spoke to her sister by phone through most of the experience. What used to be a full day of prep, surgery, and recovery can now almost take place before lunch.
"In many respects, VASER Liposelection is a kinder, gentler form of liposuction," Dr. Pathy, Yolo Laser Center and Med Spa's double board-certified plastic surgeon, notes. "But it can also be more technically demanding, requiring a skilled surgeon well-trained in the procedure. In the right hands, patients can safely achieve smoother, tighter skin, and long-lasting youthful contours post-surgery." VASER liposuction can be performed in a sterile office-based setting, while patients requiring a more extensive and higher volume liposuction should be scheduled in an operating room.
Rasmussen herself has done the procedure, documenting it on her blog (http://www.yolomedspa.com/blog). Discomfort was mild with pain medication, and Rasmussen felt sore as if she over-exercised. She also noted that her discomfort level was higher because she had two procedures, her thighs and abdomen. Though uncomfortable, Rasmussen was able to return to work on Monday, after her Saturday procedure. Some results were seen after just a week, though full results can be seen in six months.
