Vaser Liposuction or Vaser Lipo
VASER Lipo is an alternative to the current liposuction technique. It uses third-generation advanced ultrasound technology, which is designed to gently sculpt the body’s silhouette. The ultrasonic energy is transmitted through small probes that diffuse waves and liquefy fat for easy removal. The ultrasonic energy is gentle enough that it only disintegrates fat, preserving nerves, blood vessels and connective tissues, promoting better skin tightening and uniformity.
Who is VaserLipo suitable for?
Ideally patients undergoing this form of liposuction should be in good physical health and not overweight. That is to say they should be seeking to remove accumulated fat deposits in areas where they cannot be removed through diet or exercise. Some people have a tendency to accumulate fat deposits that cannot be easily removed, and require interventions such as VASER ultrasonic liposuction.
This technique is particularly suitable for use on certain parts of the body. These are the thighs, abdomen, arms, chest, chin and neck.
The VaserLipo treatment processClick
VaserLipo can be performed under local anaesthetic and sedation or under general anaesthetic, depending on the treatment area and the preferences of the patient and surgeon. The anaesthetic is made from a tumescent saline fluid which is injected into the body through small 2mm incisions in the treatment area. Instead of inserting the conventional liposuction cannula, VASER liposuction uses high-frquency ultrasonic vibrations, separating the fat cells which are then drained and removed using liposuction cannulas, taking care not to damage the surrounding tissues.
After the treatmentClick
A bandage and pressure therapy garment must be worn after the treatment. This garment is worn for about a month and is usually combined with lymphatic drainage massage. The process is painless and medication is prescribed to control the inflammation. The patient can begin walking again on the day of the procedure but should refrain from strenuous exercise for several days, depending on the treatment area.
The Vaser liposuction technique offers the surgeon greater control, meaning that they can control exactly how much fat is extracted at every stage of the procedure. It gives a smooth, firm result with less chance of pitting and bulging than conventional liposuction. It provides better body shape definition than other techniques such as traditional liposuction performed with large cannulas. VASER liposuction also helps to preserve and protect body tissue, and reduce bleeding and bruising. It also provides better tissue tightening, giving the skin greater firmness.
