If you’re looking at options to remove that stubborn fat from areas of the body that won’t shift with a healthy diet or exercise, you are likely to have come across the cosmetic surgery techniques: Vaser Liposuction and Vaser Hi-Definition Liposuction.

This is because these are two of the most advanced and superior liposculpture techniques that target unwanted fat cells and offer body contouring to refine your shape. But what’s the difference between the two cosmetic procedures, how does Vaser Liposuction work and which one is right for you?

In this article, we discuss how the liposuction procedures offered at our Melbourne Cosmos Clinic differ, helping you to understand what might be the best option for removal of your stubborn fat cells.

Vaser Hi-def vs Vaser Liposuction

Advancements in technology and cosmetic surgery practices have seen Vaser Hi-def and Vaser Liposuction take over from traditional liposuction. Both are effective at removing excess fat deposits from a variety of areas of the body and result in superior body-contouring. However, there are some key differences that will largely dictate which surgical procedure is right for you based on your requirements and current body shape.

Body contouring

One of the key differences between Vaser Hi-def and Vaser Liposuction is the body sculpting results.

Both liposculpture procedures enable the cosmetic surgeon to remove excess fat cells from problematic areas of the body with the use of ultrasound technology.

After being placed under twilight sedation, the small cannula is inserted into the treatment area, transmitting ultrasound energy and melting the targeted fat deposits. This gentle approach decreases the risk of damage to surrounding tissue and blood vessels, minimises the bruising and swelling and reduces the recovery time.

In Vaser Liposuction, the techniques used allow for removal of the deep and superficial fat cells, resulting in a slimmer and more contoured figure.

The Vaser High-definition Liposuction treatment takes the body contouring one step further by targeting the small fat deposits around and on top of the muscle tissue. As the name suggests, this offers highly defined results, creating a more athletic and muscular appearance.

In essence, depending on your pre-lipo procedure figure and amount of excess body fat, Vaser Liposuction may achieve a flat, toned stomach whereas Vaser Hi-Def Liposuction may result in emphasising your six-pack.

Suitable candidates

The best candidates for Vaser High-definition are typically men who have minimal body fat and desire an athletic appearance. Women are rarely considered good candidates for Vaser Hi-def as they are required to be reasonably lean and the final results are very masculine.

The women who do have a suitable body type for Vaser High-definition, typically opt for this liposuction treatment to achieve a bodybuilder appearance rather than smooth, feminine curves.

The best candidates for Vaser High-definition liposculpture also have good skin retraction and integrity with little-to-no sagging. Good core strength and strong horizontal definition are ideal particularly if the cosmetic surgeon is targeting areas of fat around the abdomen region.

For patients with a minor degree of skin sagging, sound energy does encourage skin tightening. However, a greater degree of skin retraction can be achieved by combining the liposuction technique with Renvioun tightening technology.

Both Vaser High-definition and Vaser Liposuction are effective and permanent fat removal techniques with minimal downtime and side effects. Determining which one is right for you will depend on your starting body shape, the amount of fat you want removed and the desired look you’re hoping cosmetic surgery will help you achieve.
