CBS Morning Show Highlights Benefits of Fat Transfer with VASER

Posted by Cosmetic Surgery Review on October 11, 2009

Many people who only want to lose a few pounds and inches turn to minimally-invasive liposuction techniques to achieve their ideal silhouette. The VASER Hi-Def liposuction system is among several of the most sought-after procedures in liposuction, and has emerged as one of the most effective procedures for fat transfer.

According to a recent article in, the VASER system can help to not only remove the extra fat from unwanted areas, but the doctor can use that fat to transfer it into other parts of the body. This procedure uses ultrasonic energy to melt and break up unwanted fat, and the ultrasound technology helps to target the fatty tissue without damaging surrounding tissues. This procedure was recently featured on the CBS Morning Show with Dr. David Broadway and Dr. John Milliard who worked on a patient who just wanted to trim up some problem areas on her lower stomach and flanks.

The doctors claim that it is possible to remove the excess fat and add a cup size to the breasts if the patient wants to. The fat is suctioned out and then immediately transferred into syringes. At this stage, it can be injected into almost any area of the body.

The VASER Hi-Def liposuction procedure can be performed on an outpatient basis, and depending on the area where the fat is removed, can be performed with only local anesthesia. The VASER device allows the doctor to target only the fatty tissue, which results in less bruising and trauma to the skin overall. This procedure may be most appropriate for patients who only want to lose a few inches in problem areas, and enjoy a breast augmentation or buttock augmentation procedure at the same time.
