Sound Surgical Technologies

The VASER® System by Sound Surgical Technologies is a liposuction system that efficiently emulsifies fatty tissue with a minimal amount of energy, thereby achieving the desired result with reduced trauma to the tissue matrix. The VASER uses 36-kHz ultrasonic energy to target fat, and it provides the physician with control and ease of use. One-, two-, and three-groove patterns on the patented VASER probes increase fragmentation efficiency for fibrous, medium, and soft-tissue types, allowing treatment of a full range of fatty tissue. Precision fluid management, controlled tissue selective emulsification, and proprietary cannulae work together to produce the desired results.
