Every single body type has areas that are predisposed to fat storage and, even with rigorous diet and exercise, those unwanted bulges often persist in all shapes and sizes.
VASER Liposuction is the latest technology and offers a safe alternative for ridding yourself of those stubborn fat deposits to provide you a smooth new shape with fast recovery.
VASER Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that precisely and efficiently removes unwanted body fat as an alternative to the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction that uses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology designed to gently reshape your body. What distinguishes the Liposuction procedure is its ability to differentiate targeted fat from other important tissues – such as nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue with this innovative new technology that breaks up fat while conserving these other important tissues. This procedure uses the proprietary VASER System to first liquefy fat and then remove it from the body to promote smooth results and rapid healing with only low to minimal pain.
Here are some Q &A’s to help you understand a bit better!
Q.Whats the difference between VASER Lipo and normal standard lipo?
A. Traditional liposuction uses motion — the back and forth movement of a cannula — to dislodge fat cells before removing them using suction. VASER Liposuction is a form of ultrasound-assisted liposuction. VASER Lipo is tumescent lipo with an added step to liquefy fat cells before they are suctioned out.
Patients who say they would have never considered liposuction are now finding the VASER procedure is a minimally invasive option for the achievement of their body reshaping goals. Although there are limits to the amount of fat that can be removed. your doctor can assist you with your decision about potential areas for contouring, anticipated results, and the recovery process.
Bear in mind that this procedure is not intended as a weight loss solution as the goal is to rather create a slimmer silhouette.
Avoid aspirin and blood-thinning medication such as brufen for two weeks prior to surgery to eliminate the chance of post-op. bleeding. No smoking for 2 weeks prior to surgery as this may affect your reaction to the anesthetic and prolong the healing process and patients that suffer from hypertension must inform the surgeon prior to surgery.
No food or liquid intake at least 6 hours prior to surgery.
Upon discharge from the hospital, oral antibiotics, pain reliever and anti-swelling medications will be provided and compression garments are worn 24/7 in the first week. On the second to third-week compression garment can be taken off at bedtime. There will be temporary bruising, swelling, numbness, soreness or burning sensation to the area and usually, the patient returns to work and resume normal daily activities after 5 to 14 days.
Strenuous activities can be resumed after 2-4 weeks although it may take 1-6 months for the swelling and bruising to totally subside depending upon the amount of fat and the areas treated.
However, because fat is necessary for 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 with normal aging changes can also be expected.
