Revision of Body Contouring Complications

Traditional liposuction results have been plagued by limitations in the degree of fat removal.

Universally, the fat under the skin is divided into two depths, the superficial and deep planes.

The superficial fat is beneath the skin. It is in a fibrous network made up of supportive pillars called retaining ligament. This layer cannot be reduced using traditional liposuction techniques. The retaining ligaments restrict the entry and movement of the fat removing cannulas. In contrast, the deep fat is above the muscles and under the superficial fat above. This layer is in a loose “areolar” plane that is void of any structural fibrous network. The deep fat layer is amenable to fat removal using traditional liposuction techniques. It allows for the entry and free movement of the fat removing cannulas. 
There are several known reasons for observed body contouring complications involving contour irregularity. The first is the novice liposuction practitioner. They is not able to completely remove the deep fat layer. This results in a wavy or asymmetric appearance in body contour. This can happen when the removal of more deep fat from one side than the other. It is important that your surgeon understand how, where and what type of fat accumulates
The second by cavalier surgeons. They try to push the envelope of traditional liposuction. by attempting to remove superficial fat. Unfortunately, the solid cannulas cannot uniformly penetrate this layer as discussed above. This results in visible divots. This botched result often occurs over the abdomen and described a “checkerboard” abdomen. It is full of extensive divots.

In contrast, VASER liposuction allows for use of an ultrasound probe. This special probe emulsifies the fat into a liquid form. Once in a liquid form, a suction removes it undamaged for possible reuse. Note: almost all the fat is gone from both the superficial as well as the deep fat layers.
Now we can remove both layers of fat. VASER technology is the only choice for revision of all contour irregularities. This is true regardless of whether the deformities involved. Even with inappropriate or uneven removal of deep and/or superficial fat.
Also, the ultrasound VASER probe is the only technology that can remove scar tissue. Scar tissue has become most evident in a new contour deformity. Know as paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH). it presents in cryotherapy (CoolScultping) patients. Patients that undergo Cool Sculpting end up freezing the superficial layer of fat. This can improve your contour. Unfortunately, if weight gain occurs after the procedure. Patients may notice the growth of fat bulges in the areas of cryo treatment, coined PAH. There is only one viable solution for these patients. We have to use VASER high definition liposuction. Now we remove not only any residual superficial fat. But also the scar tissue and all the deep fat so that it cannot regrow and bulge out again.
