There are two types of Vaser liposuction:
This is a popular procedure for both men and women across a range of ages. Vaser Liposuction can be used on any area of your body, including:
The process requires a small ultrasound probe to be placed under the skin to dissolve the fatty layer of tissue before it is removed. The ultrasound also stimulates collagen production – which allows the skin to appear tighter and smoother following the procedure.
Vaser Liposuction is a relatively comfortable procedure. You will be given twilight sedation and a numbing solution under the skin at the points of incision. This allows you to avoid general anesthetic while foregoing any discomfort during the liposuction process. The Vaser Lipo technique allows for smaller incision points and reduced levels of bruising. General anesthetic can also be used if the patient wishes.
Patients can expect 3-5 days of mild discomfort after the procedure as the body heals. We advise patients to also wear a compression garment for 6-8 weeks after the procedure to assist with the healing process.
The first step, before undergoing Vaser Liposuction, is to discuss your medical history and medications with your doctor.
You can help shorten your recovery time by taking these pre-op steps as well:
You will be given twilight sedation on the day of the procedure, before small incisions are made to insert a numbing solution under the skin. A small ultrasound probe is then placed under the skin to dissolve the fatty layer before it is removed. Vaper liposuction converts the fatty layer into a soft material with the consistency of butter, as this then allows for it to be gently suctioned out. The use of ultrasound stimulates the production of collagen, which means that skin will appear tighter and smoother following the procedure.
While any procedure comes with some risk, Vaser Liposuction seeks to lower or minimise issues via its use of tumescent fluid during the procedure. Incision points are also kept to a minimum so that a patient can expect a short recovery time. There is risk of bruising and scarring as incisions are required. Incision points with Vaser Liposuction are smaller than those experienced during other lipo techniques, and therefore less scarring is likely to occur. Incision points are also strategically planned as to further lessen any visual impact.
Immediately after the procedure, patients must rest for a minimum of 12 hours and avoid strenuous activity for a few days after. Patients can expect some light bruising and should wear compression garments for 3-6 weeks to assist in the healing process. Mild discomfort may be experienced for 2-5 days post-procedure.
If you have any concerns about the risks involved, book a consultation with us and we can discuss every aspect of the procedure and address any questions you may have.
Generally, you will see results after 6 weeks, although many begin to see results immediately after the procedure. Results will continue to appear up to three months after the procedure. Vaser Lipo results are long lasting if you follow a healthy lifestyle.
Vaser Liposuction targets specific anatomical areas using superficial and transitioning liposculpture techniques. This allows the surgeon to create a more natural, muscular appearance on the body. The technique targets small fat deposits in specific areas, resulting in natural muscle contours. After the procedure, you will appear more toned and defined.
Beyond the visual results, there are other benefits that make Vaser Liposuction appealing to patients. These include:
