What is the Vaser PowerX® System?
Part of the VASERlipo® System, the Vaser PowerX® System is a power-assisted liposuction device that uses ultrasound and unique rotational cannula technology to quickly and efficiently remove unwanted fat. Unlike traditional liposuction, the Vaser PowerX® System rapidly removes fat in targeted areas with minimal damage to surrounding skin and tissue, providing a satisfactory experienced for both the patient and physician alike.
The Vaser PowerX® System can help trim and tone various areas of the body with both superficial and larger volumes of fat, including:
- Outer thighs
It's common for our patients to have liposuction questions about their options and Dr. Bogue will make sure to discuss the details of the procedure and technology during your consultation.
Benefits of Vaser PowerX® System
This system offers patients many benefits. Because of its distinctive design, the Vaser PowerX® System can be used as for the gentle removal of surface layers of fat or for a more aggressive elimination of deeper moderate to large fatty deposits. Other benefits include:
- Quick and efficient treatment sessions
- Unique design allows for customization of treatment
- Can treat a wide range of body areas
- Minimal effect on surrounding tissue
- Less pain, swelling, and bruising than traditional liposuction
- More control for physicians
- Reduced aspiration time and physician fatigue
- Can be used with the VASERlipo® System
The Vaser PowerX®’s design allows it to be operated with less vibration and noise than traditional liposuction. This means that patients who wish to only use local anesthesia will not be bothered by a loud procedure and instead can relax as we contour their body.
Results can be seen immediately and final results can be expected by 12 weeks after your procedure.
Vaser PowerX® System Technology
The Vaser PowerX® System builds off of the Vaser system and goes even further by using a specialized cannula which uses controlled, rotational technology to successfully remove fatty deposits while minimizing damage to surrounding areas. Smaller, faster, and quieter than other power-assisted liposuction technologies its design and operation allow for a complete removal of fat in targeted areas.
The rotating cannula has a rotation range of 90 degrees to 720 degrees and is customizable depending on the amount of fat and location of fat being removed. This is beneficial in that it not only allows for top layers and deep layers of fat to be removed depending on the speed and rotation degree of the cannula, but it aids in the efficiency of the removal as it provides uninterrupted suction, speeding up the procedure and reducing physician fatigue.
Vaser PowerX® System Candidacy
At North Texas Plastic Surgery, we aim to make sure that every patient is provided with a thorough explanation of the procedure they desire, which includes determining candidacy. During your consultation, our doctor will assess your health, medical history, and goals to make sure that any given treatment is safe and effective for you.
While the Vaser PowerX® System is virtually painless and uses advanced technology to efficiently remove fat without damaging your surrounding tissues, not everyone is an ideal candidate for this procedure. Our doctor will discuss your candidacy in depth during your consultation, but those with certain medical conditions should refrain from this treatment. Those who should avoid the Vaser PowerX® System treatment include:
- Those who are taking medication or have a disease that impairs wound healing
- Thos who suffer from diabetes
- Those with heart, lung, or circulatory system disease
- Those who are obese
- Those with blood clotting disorders
- Those who don’t have sufficient skin elasticity
As with traditional liposuction, the Vaser PowerX® System is not intended as a weight loss solution and is used for those who are near a healthy weight who wish to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat.
