What is VASER Lipo?
VASER Lipo is a specialized and minimally invasive fat removal and body contouring procedure. In contrast to traditional liposuction, VASER Lipo affords patients the sculpting experience no amount of exercise or dieting can achieve by itself with ultimate precision and minimal downtime.
VASER (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) uses the most advanced ultrasound technology to break down fat cells, which are then removed from your body through a suction process. VASER Lipo (also referred to as Vaser liposelection or Ultrasound Liposuction) is a suitable procedure for both men and women.
The ultrasound energy only targets fat cells, leaving surrounding tissues undamaged, and involves minimal downtime. Our experience tells us that VASER Lipo is the most effective minimally invasive method of removing unwanted fat from your body, creating a defined and sculpted area.
In the human body, some areas tend to store fat easily and that seems almost impossible to get rid of through basic exercises and special diets. Apart from being healthy cosmetically, these fat deposit areas can make us look out of shape or demotivate us. Even sometimes, a small fat deposit area may look like a defect on an athletic body.
The VASER Lipo Procedure
VASER Lipo is a minimally invasive procedure, performed under local anesthetic. A small probe is used to transmit the sound energy and liquefy fat cells prior to removal through a gentle suction process. It is a less invasive procedure than traditional liposuction.
Because the treatment is so advanced, there are several different variants designed to give precise results, depending on what you want. VASER Hi-Def and VASER 4D are particularly popular with men looking to achieve athletic toning and defined muscles while VASER 360 is a specialist technique to address the legs circumferentially with no irregularities.
VASER Lipo Results
Improved the overall shape and contours of the body. Standard VASER results are very subtle and natural-looking, with areas of fat removed. For those who prefer a more athletic, sculpted look, VASER Hi-Def or VASER Mid-Def may be better options.
Many patients see results straight away. However, the improved overall appearance of the treated areas will become prominent in the months following the procedure. The treatment can help remove stubborn areas of fat but cannot rid of excessive amounts of bulging skin, for which an abdominoplasty will often be better suited.
Recovery / Downtime
The VASER Lipo procedure involves minimal downtime and you can get back to your daily routine almost immediately, depending on which area you have targeted. The small incisions made during the procedure will not require stitches.
However, because there may be some bruising and swelling, we advise that you wait a couple of weeks before you hit the gym or do any rigorous physical activity. To help speed-up recovery, we usually suggest a course of MLD Massage after your treatment.
VASER Liposuction aftercare regime following both VASER Hi-Def and VASER Mid-Def is important and does require some commitment from you. Further information will be given about this during your pre-treatment consultation with the Doctor.
Advantages of VASER Liposuction:
- VASER Lipo does not require a general anesthetic
- Minimally invasive – no damage to other body tissues
- Minimal risk of bleeding, bruising and discomfort
- Minimal downtime – VASER Lipo is a walk-in-walk-out procedure
- Less scarring, less bruising
- Stimulates collagen production, resulting in tighter skin for many patients, while conventional Liposuction may occasionally result in sagging skin
