of collective experience and the latest medical equipment
Large calves caused by fat are a concern that many people suffer from. High density fat deposits in this area can be contoured away using the latest and most precise Vaser Liposuction method.
Liposuction for Calf Contouring: What to Expect
Vaser Liposuction to the calves is a procedure performed under mild sedation. This cutting-edge procedure is gentle enough to be performed with local anaesthetic under light sedation, making it a safer option than a procedure requiring a general anaesthetic. Vaser Liposuction uses ultrasound energy to deliver precise results, by melting fat cells and promoting skin tightening. During the procedure, a small ultrasound probe is passed under the skin to dissolve the fatty layer before it is suctioned away. The procedure can melt a brick of fat into a softer state; like a slab of butter, thus allowing the fat to be gently removed.
When can I expect to see results?
You will see results approximately 6 months after your procedure. Before this time due to the calf area being so far away from the heart, swelling can occur.
