VASER Lipo is an advanced body contouring procedure that selectively removes unwanted body fat. An alternative to the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction, VASER Lipo uses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology designed to gently reshape your body.
What distinguishes the VASER Lipo procedure is its ability to differentiate targeted fat from other important tissues – such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. Innovative VASER technology breaks up fat while preserving these other important tissues to promote smooth results and rapid healing.
Classic liposuction will reduce stomach fat and help you achieve your ideal appearance. Vaser techniques will take your body sculpting results one step further. Vaser reduces abdominal fat and sculpts the area with noticeable skin tightening.
Results from VASER liposuction can be permanent if you follow a healthy diet and exercise regime. The fat does not grow back to the treated areas, and the results remain intact if a patient follows an ideal weight post-liposuction
This is a common misperception. Following your VASER Lipo procedure, should you experience weight gain or loss, it will tend to be proportionately distributed over your entire body. Once you have fat removed, it is gone and, assuming a healthy lifestyle of proper diet and exercise, it will not return or migrate. However, because fat is necessary to a healthy body, some essential fat layers in any given area remain untreated. If you do gain a significant amount of weight, the remaining fatty tissue will expand. Normal aging changes can also be expected.
To prepare for your surgery, make sure your surgeon is aware of any medications that you’re taking. Avoid taking blood-thinning medication, such as ibuprofen, in the 2 weeks before a liposuction procedure. Avoid all alcohol.
Your surgeon will discuss sedation options. The most popular option is Twilight anaesthesia which takes the pain away and calms you whilst keeping you awake unlike general anaesthetic. This will be given to you via IV drip..
A small probe is then inserted through an incision. It emits ultrasound waves to break down and liquefy fat cells. The liquefied fat is then gently sucked out through a small needle
After VASER liposuction, your body might look a little bruised and swollen in the areas that were targeted.
You’ll be given sterilized cotton pads to dress the affected area, as it’ll be weeping fluid in the next 24 to 48 hours. You will also be given a compression garment to wear for several weeks to help reduce the swelling.
After about 3 to 6 months, you’ll start to see the results more clearly as your body settles into its modified form. For some people, it may take a couple more months to see results.
Results from VASER liposuction can be permanent. But the way your body looks after recovery is partially up to you. After getting liposuction, you’ll need to keep up your diet and exercise routine so that your body doesn’t regain the fat deposits that were removed.
People most likely to benefit from Dermal Filler treatment are those looking to:
Reduce fat in their arms, waistline & stomach, hips & thighs, chin & neck, upper back, buttocks.
Create more definition.
Tighten the skin.
Those that do not have good skin elasticity are not suitable candidates for this surgery. However, some patients with poor skin elasticity are happy with the results even with the slightly wrinkled look of the skin. Pregnant or breastfeeding women cannot have the surgery.
During your pre-surgery consultation, you should thoroughly discuss your medical history with your consultant to ensure VASER Lipo is the right surgery for you.
All of the following areas: abdomen, thighs, knees, ankles, calves, buttocks, hips, back, arms, male breasts, love handles, chin, face and just about any other body part you need treated.
VASER Lipo allows physicians to treat multiple body areas at one time. A surgeon will be able to give you a better idea of what is right for you and how much fat will be taken out during your procedure. Bear in mind that this procedure is not intended as a weight loss solution. The goal is to create a slimmer silhouette. You may not notice a significant amount of weight loss, but you should be pleased with your slimmer new shape.
This varies with the extensiveness of the procedure—the amount of fat removed, the number of areas treated, and so on. Many patients report that they see results immediately after the procedure with the final result at around 3 to 6 months. It is important that you establish realistic expectations through discussion with your consultant and surgeon.
