If you’ve struggled with weight gain, and exercise and diet just haven’t given you the dramatic transformation you’d like, VASERlipo™ can help. VASERlipo™ uses a precise, minimally invasive liposuction technology that produces eye-catching results in just one procedure without the discomfort and long recovery times of typical liposuction treatments. The procedure is tissue-selective, targeting fat while protecting other tissues from damage. It’s powerful enough to eliminate substantial areas of fat but gentle enough to treat delicate areas such as the neck and arms. VASERlipo™ is clinically proven to produce even results in treated areas, leaving your skin smooth and your body beautiful.
The impact of new VASER technology is also on fat transfer procedures. More and more liposuction patients are choosing to use their own fat cells to add volume to the lips or cheeks or to fill nasolabial folds or smooth the jaw line. One of the keys to success with autologous fat transfer is the quality and viability of the fat used. The gentle nature of the VASER system has always produced a better quality of fat for transplantation, but new innovations in the platform make the process even more efficient.
The new system processes the harvested fat for transfer simultaneously, allowing patients to undergo their fat injections almost immediately. For physician, this means a more efficient, effective procedure; for our patients, it means a shorter procedure time and optimized results.
Cellulite reduction techniques such as now ONLY performed with VaserSmooth and dieting actually do remove cellulite. However eating a healthful, balanced diet and exercising can further reduce the fat content in cells and reduce the appearance of cellulite.VASERsmooth permits us to effectively and quickly treat cellulite with quick recoveries and obvious results. The VASERsmooth procedure is performed totally under local anesthesia in our surgically accredited office. Through a few tiny incisions that close without stitches or scars, local anesthesia is then infused under the skin to totally numb the region. Using the thin, ultrasonic ‘VASERsmooth’ probe designed specifically to be used just under the skin, the VASERsmooth device emulsifies superficial fat, breaks the dimpling fibrous septae and tightens loose skin, resulting in an overall and permanently smoother appearance.
Body parts that we treat
Before the procedure, you definitely need to do all the lab tests, ECG, and finding an internist / anesthesiologist, to check the status of the organism. On the day of the surgery the patient should have nothing to eat or drink, and all other details are carefully explained by our staff.
The typo of anasthesia depends on the areas of the body that are treated with liposuction. If they are smaller zones, as well as smaller amounts of fatty tissue that is to be removed, the procedure can be performed under local anesthesia. If you are doing a larger zone, as well as reducing the large amount of adipose tissue, it is recommended that a procedure is done under general anesthesia.
Before the procedure is done the part of the body that will be treated is carefully measured and photographed. Then the surgeon marks the anatomic zones using a special surgical markers. The surgery is performed through a minimal sting on a few millimeters, and after application of fluid in the area of adipose tissue that is to be aspirated. Using ultrasound that softens the adipose tissue, it is then permanently removed by special liposuccion microcannulas. After the procedure, the patient is put on a special pad Reston on the treated part of the body to minimize swelling, and immediately a special brace is put on.
After the surgery bed rest for a few days is recommended , and then major physical effort over a period of two weeks needs to be avoided. Lymphatic drainage is certainly recommended to accelerate the disappearance of the occurrence of edema.
Frequently Asked Questions
Am I suitable?
When you lose weight, is it usually most noticeable on your face and upper body, leaving behind more resistant areas, such as the hips, buttocks, thighs and abdomen?
Fat distribution can be incredibly uneven, leaving some areas more out of proportion than others. Diet and exercise can only do so much for most people. VASER Lipo can help adults of all ages and most parts of the body affected by stubborn body fat.
VASER Liposuction is a highly successful area specific fat reduction treatment. It improves the balance of distribution of fatty tissue around your body, for a more aesthetically pleasing profile.
Although liposuction can often provide very substantial improvements, it is not a weight-loss technique, or a solution for obesity. It is also not an effective treatment for cellulite.
Ideally, any treatment should be viewed as a compliment to regular exercise and good diet, and not the replacement of a healthy lifestyle.
Does the procedure hurt?
VASER Lipo is carried out under local anaesthetic, so you’ll feel no pain during the treatment. If you are feeling anxious, we can also offer sedation to help ease your nerves.
How long does the procedure take?
This will depend on the number and size of areas to be treated, but generally, the VASER Lipo procedure lasts between 1 and 2 hours.
Are the results permanent?
Yes, as long as you maintain your weight. Once the fat has been removed it is gone for good, and if you follow a healthy diet and exercise plan it will not come back.
What happens if I gain weight after VASER Liposuction?
Although it is highly recommended to try and maintain your weight after your treatment, it is possible to gain up to 3-4 kilos before you notice any obvious change in the treated area. With VASER Lipo, superficial fat and fat cells are removed, and as the body doesn’t readily make new fat cells past puberty, the results are more or less permanent. Any mild weight fluctuations are therefore not noticed as the extra fat is either immediately processed or evenly distributed around you body.
Are there any side effects of VASER Liposuction?
VASER exemplifies the safest and most effective tool used for liposelection and body contouring. However, the skills and expertise of your surgeon are what count in the success and results of the procedure, as well as your chances of any complications.
How soon will I see the results?
Many patients will see results straight away. However, the appearance of the treated areas will show the most improvement about 5-6 weeks post procedure.
