Why Vaser is superior vs other liposuction

Traditional Liposuction

With Vaser Liposuction, there are three main stages. First, tumescent solution is injected into the areas about to be liposuctioned. This first stage numbs those areas and preps the body for stage two. The second stage is the use of the Vaser probe. This probe utilises Vaser technology to melt the fat underneath the skin and produces heat to stimulate skin tightening. Thirdly, the fat is then suctioned out of the body in a liquid-like consistency. With Traditional Liposuction, the middle stage is skipped. This means that the fat melting stage is bypassed. To explain in non-technical terms, Traditional Liposuction is like sucking out a brick of fat through a straw, whereas Vaser Liposuction melts the fat, making it similar to sucking butter out through a straw. This extra separation stage used during Vaser Liposuction means there is less trauma to the body; therefore, creating a gentler healing process and overall better results as more fat cells are removed.

Liposoft

Liposoft uses water to separate fat cells. This means that there is no heat given off when Liposoft is used. Therefore, unlike Vaser Liposuction, you will not get the skin tightening benefits that the Vaser probe offers.

Laser Liposuction

Laser Liposuction, as the name suggests, uses light to melt fat. Laser energy comes out of the tip of the probe whereas Vaser energy comes out of the tip and the sides of the probe so Vaser gives out more energy in a more uniform pattern. Laser Liposuction can only be used for small areas (such as the neck). This technique is unable to melt large volumes of fat, therefore meaning it cannot effectively treat areas like the abdomen and flanks.

Bodytite

The Bodytite Liposuction technique utilises radio frequency. This means that Bodytite works in a similar way to Vaser Liposuction. However, the most noticeable difference is that Vaser Liposuction causes less trauma to the tissues – therefore minimising risks and recovery time. The heat produced and used by Vaser is gentler and more uniformed, meaning the procedure is also less painful.

Areas that can be treated using Vaser Liposuction

Abdomen

The abdomen can be divided into the upper tummy (the area from below the ribs to the belly button) and the lower tummy area (between the belly button and bikini line). Vaser Liposuction can be performed on one or both areas at the same time. Incision sites in these areas are placed discreetly in the belly button and near the bikini line. Vaser Liposuction promotes good skin retraction in most cases; however, some patients may need a tummy tuck if they have significantly saggy skin. Our doctors will advise accordingly on the treatment options best suited to you in consultation.

Tummy Vaser Liposuction

Flanks (Love Handles)

Flanks, commonly known as love handles, sit above the hip bone area and are a frequent concern for patients. They can hang over your jeans and increase the width of your waist line. Incisions are hidden within your underwear area.

Love Handles Liposuction

Inner & Outer Thighs and Knees

Attractive legs are desired by many, although slender, proportionate thighs are not something everyone is genetically blessed with. Fat can be unevenly distributed throughout the inner and outer thighs, causing discomfort. For example, chafing of the skin can occur from the constant friction of inner thighs rubbing against each other. This can lead to the development of sores and even infection.

Thigh Liposuction

Front of Thighs

The front of the thigh is a difficult area to treat. The best candidates are people with toned skin and mostly fat in the area. Often people confuse bulky muscle in this area for fat.

Front Thigh Liposuction

Arms

Removing stubborn fat from the arms can give a slimmer and more proportioned appearance to the body, especially in women. Fat tends to be in and around the triceps (i.e the back of arms) and laterals (i.e. the side of the arms)

Arm Liposuction

Back

Fat distribution on the back can be divided into several areas namely the upper back (above the bra line), and lower back or area below the bra line. These areas are difficult to shift despite exercise and can be challenging for the surgeon to treat due to the fibrous nature of the fat. Vaser turns the fibrous fat to a ‘buttery’ consistency, allowing easy suctioning and subsequently, creating a desirable ‘V’ shaped back.

Back Liposuction

Female Breasts

Large breasts can cause discomfort, back aches, difficulty with exercise and they can make a woman self-conscious. A Breast Reduction not only removes the excess fat in this area, but it can also create a lift (for a more youthful, well-proportioned appearance). While most women can benefit from this minimally invasive procedure, a consultation with one of our experienced doctors will determine if this treatment or traditional Breast Reduction surgery is more suitable for you.

Male Breasts (aka Man Boobs)

Man boobs can cause anxiety for many men. It is caused by excessive development of breast tissue with or without extra fat tissue. Usually genetically predetermined, man boobs can’t be treated with exercise. Vaser Liposuction gently removes the fat in this area and removes the gland. Further sculpting on the chest can also be done after treating man boobs.

Face & Cheeks

Some people, especially of Asian descent, are genetically predisposed to facial fat. This can give them a “chipmunk” appearance (even if the person is slim). Vaser Liposuction can sculpt the face; giving a more toned appearance. It can be combined with Neck Lift Liposuction for a more youthful look.

Face & Cheeks Liposuction

Jaw & Neck Line

Fat deposits in the jawline, jowls and neck area can occur genetically and tend to exacerbate with age. This gives rise to a wattle neck and leads to a “wattle” aged appearance – especially when coupled with sagging and wrinkled skin. Vaser Liposuction is one of the safest and most effective methods of removing fat from the jowls and neck area.

Jaw & Neckline Liposuction

Buttocks & Banana

Roll Having a well-proportioned behind is something many people desire. This is often unrealised with the position of fat causing a droopy buttock or “banana rolls”. This appears in the area between the curve of the buttock and start of the thighs. While a smaller buttock is achievable with liposuction, a beautiful well proportioned behind is something that requires skill and artistic flair on the surgeon’s behalf. Vaser Liposuction, when in experienced hands, can provide smooth and symmetric results.

The benefits of liposuction

Liposuction is very popular because it allows patients to reshape almost any area of their body. In fact, this procedure is in such high demand because modern plastic surgery techniques boast an exceptional safety record and results.  The major benefits of liposuction include:

Body Contouring & Sculpting

You can exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet and still have localised fatty deposits that are extremely resistant to even the strictest fitness regimen. Or perhaps you’re dissatisfied with the way your fat is distributed and desire a more hourglass profile or chiseled body. Minimally-invasive procedures like Vaser Liposuction and Vaser High-Def Liposuction can precisely target and address problem areas to create a more attractive body shape for both women and men.

Elimination of Unwanted Fat

You can exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet and still have localised fatty deposits that are extremely resistant to even the strictest fitness regimen. Or perhaps you’re dissatisfied with the way your fat is distributed and desire a more hourglass profile or chiseled body. Minimally-invasive procedures like Vaser Liposuction and Vaser High-Def Liposuction can precisely target and address problem areas to create a more attractive body shape for both women and men.

Improved Self-Confidence

There’s no denying that when you’re happy with how you look your self-confidence shines through. When you’re confident it’s reflected in every aspect of your life, affecting personal happiness and may even contribute to more business success. Luckily, liposuction can help you look more fit and attractive by shaping your body in a way that diet and exercise alone cannot accomplish.

Liposuction questions

Frequently asked questions

What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure whereby a cannula and suction are used to remove excess fat from the body. Some advanced liposuction techniques incorporate ultrasound or other methods to ‘melt’ the fat first to allow for easier and gentler extraction. The result is permanent reduction of stubborn bulges and a dramatic improvement in body shape and contour.

Is Liposuction Safe?

Yes, liposuction is extremely safe. As with all surgical procedures, however, there’s always the risk of developing complications such as irregularities, infection or blood clots. Keep in mind that complications are extremely unlikely and we’ve performed thousands of liposuction procedures without incident.

Is Liposuction painful?

Most patients are pleasantly surprised at how little pain they experience during and after their liposuction procedure. Any pain and discomfort is handled with medication that patients take home with them post-treatment.

Do I need more than one session?

This depends on a number of factors, including how much fat is removed during the initial session, your desired outcome and expectations. Although our experienced surgeons always strive to achieve the best possible fat reduction the first time around, in some cases additional sessions may be required.

Does Liposuction treat obesity?

No, liposuction does not treat obesity; however, our Mega Liposuction technique can help overweight patients lose considerable amounts of fat.

How long does the procedure take?

Typically, the procedure can take anywhere from 1-4 hours, depending on the amount of adipose tissue that needs to be removed.
