As medical technology has evolved, cosmetic surgery procedures have become safer and less expensive. One good example of this is Vaser Liposuction.
What is Vaser Liposuction?
Vaser Liposuction is one of the easiest and fastest ways to get rid of excess fat around the body. This can be from the abdomen, arms, back, cheeks, inner thighs, neck, and so on. The aim of this process is to achieve an aesthetically pleasing, even body shape through weight loss. It is generally safe for use by both men and women of different ages.
Is the Vaser technique better than the older traditional liposuction methods? Vaser liposuction is preferred to traditional liposuction because it has a less traumatic effect on the body, and the patient is more likely to see a smoother and better finish. It is also less painful since it uses a more advanced technology that is less evasive.
How Vaser Liposuction works
Just like its name, vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance, Vaser Liposuction uses high frequency ultrasound tech to break down the fatty cells in the body. The broken down cells may then be sucked out easily.
Types of Vaser Liposuction
There are two types of Vaser liposuction procedures.
- The standard vaser liposuction procedure gets rid of excess fat cells by highlighting and defining the area to achieve a light and smooth finish.
- High definition vaser liposuction is more advanced than the standard Vaser Liposuction. It gives the patient a well-defined body shape by focusing on the muscles.
Vaser Liposuction procedure
Before carrying out Vaser Liposuction, it is important the patient fully understands the procedure and what happens on the day of the surgery.
Vaser liposuction procedure is relatively comfortable compared to other liposuction techniques. The patient may either be sedated or given general anaesthesia. It solely depends on what the patient wants, and may also depend on how extensive the procedure is.
Instead of using water pressure or laser to break down the fat cells, a small ultrasound device is inserted under the skin to dissolve the fatty layer. It converts the fatty layer into a soft, semi liquefied material that is then sucked out using a cannula or a tube.
After the procedure has been completed, the skin will appear smoother and lighter. Patients are advised to wear compression garments for about 6-8 weeks afterwards to ease the discomfort experienced after the procedure, as well as achieve best results. Patients can also take pain relieving pills to ease the pain.
What body areas can be treated with Vaser Liposuction?
Virtually any part of the body that has fat can be treated, but there are areas of the body that have recorded a significant success rate after vaser reatment. They include:
- Inner thighs
- Neckline fronts
- Love handle
- And the Chin.
You should have a talk with the doctor to be sure of the right type of Liposuction for you.
How much fat can be taken out with Vaser Liposuction?
It is important to know that the essence of Vaser Liposuction is to give you a slimmer physique or shape, rather than recording significant weight loss. The volume of fat taken out depends on the health status and percentage of fat in the body. Excess removal of fat can lead to serious health issues. Usually, 5%of your body weight is the advisable rate for any one session.
How many treatment sessions will you need?
Vaser Liposuction is usually carried out in one session with an additional touch up session after about six months. Touch up sessions are quick procedures designed to ensure the best results are achieved. However, if your treatment requires multiple areas you may be asked to go for two sessions with a four month interval.
Is the weight loss via vaser permanent?
After the procedure, you will find that you have lost a substantial volume of fat. You must note that it is possible to gain back original weight after vaser liposuction especially in areas of the body that did not undergo the procedure. However, if controlled via exercise, remaining fats will be distributed evenly in the body after the procedure.
Is Vaser Liposuction right for you?
Vaser Liposuction is one treatment that is well known for cutting down stubborn fat deposits that are unresponsive to exercise or diet. It also produces significant results although there is a limit to fatty tissue that can be removed from the body. However, Vaser Liposuction should not be used as a replacement for regular exercise and a healthy diet.
Although the procedure is usually suitable for everyone, young and old, male and female, it may be unsuitable for persons with certain allergies such as adverse reaction to anaesthesia. If you have too many stretch marks or your skin is loose, the procedure may not be suitable for you also. A Tummy tuck could be a more appropriate option. Consult your doctor on this.
Vaser Liposuction is an ideal way to get rid of excess fat in the body. To get the best safe results, it is advisable to use a good cosmetic surgeon that is suitably certified. To get lasting results, you need to maintain proper eating habits and exercise. A walking regimen may be initiated 1-2 weeks after the procedure and more energetic routine 3-4 weeks after surgery.
