VASERsmooth Procedure Explained
VASERsmooth is a revolutionary outpatient surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia by the plastic surgeons and cosmetic surgeons of the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute in Chicago, Arlington Heights, Oak Brook and Naperville.
VASERsmooth is designed for one-time treatment of cellulite of the thighs and is based on the latest technological advances from Sound Surgical Corp.
“This is a revolutionary technology” said Dr. Leon Forrester Tcheupdjian, M.D., a renowned cosmetic surgeon and author. “I have been treating stubborn cellulite in my patients since the 1980s. Back then we used to use the “Leon Heart”, a small heart shaped instrument with a thin long stalk and handle to release and bisect the puckering septae bands under the skin. It was introduced in a shallow subcutaneous plane during liposuction procedures and made many of my patients very happy by improving the appearance of their cellulitic dimples. Occasionally, I would inject the patient’s own fat in the area to fill deeper dents and divots. To date, I still rely on my useful invention. With the advent of VASERsmooth, I have a new modality that will provide patients a wonderful new advanced cellulite-fighting option.”
Prevalence of Cellulite
“Cellulite is a common condition among women of all shapes, sizes and races” said Leslie Forrester, R.N., B.S.N., author and health care practitioner in Chicago. “Cellulite affects over 90% of all women, and may be related to female hormonal composition.”
“As long as humans have walked the Earth, there has been cellulite” said Dr. Leon Forrester Tcheupdjian M.D., emphasizing how common and ancient this condition truly is. “Even malnourished individuals can develop cellulite. You can either ignore it or do something about it. Until recently the treatment options were all non-surgical and requiring multiple treatment sessions. Now a new one-time surgical cellulite release option is available to women, VASERsmooth.
