Vaser Hi Definition Liposuction

Quick facts

Vaser High Definition Liposuction is a form of liposculpture that removes fat from around and on-top of muscle groups, to enhance the visibility of underlying muscles, producing ultra-defined results and an athletic appearance

  • Uses ultrasound technology to make the fat soft like butter, allowing the removal of superficial fat to create definition around the muscles of the upper body

  • Gentle form of liposuction with no aggressive suctioning. The ‘buttery’ consistency of the fat makes it easier to suction out and allows a smooth and natural result

  • Best candidates have good skin tone and solid muscle bulk that can be felt when contracting

  • Performed under conscious sedation, general anaesthetic is an option

  • Results generally seen at 6 weeks and in some cases up to 6 months. Results may vary

  • Definition will remain, even if you put weight on

  • Moderate pain discomfort, usually requiring 4 – 7 days off work

  • Compression garment to be worn for 3 – 6 weeks post surgery

  • x2 Lymphatic Drainage massages for 2 weeks post surgery

  • Costs start from $10,000 for men and $7,000 for women

  • *Disclaimer – results may vary from patient to patient

  • What is Vaser High Definition Liposuction?
    • Vaser High Definition Liposuction (vaser hi def), also known as Vaser 4D Liposuction sculpts the body to create an athletic appearnce and contoured look using state of the art ultrasound technology (Vaser).

      These days not many of us have the spare hours each day to spend in the gym to get a six-pack and then all the additional hours of maintenance required to keep it looking in peak condition. Vaser High Definition Liposuction is a liposuction technique that can help fit and healthy people achieve visible muscle definition.

      At Cosmos Clinic, our doctors are specialists in body contouring, specifically, liposuction procedures, and have been trained by the best surgeons around the world, including Dr Matlock (Beverly Hills (USA), Vaser Liposuction specialist), Dr Mueller (Beverly Hills (USA), iGuide inventor and facial plastic surgeon) as well as Dr Said Hilton (Germany, Dermatologist and laser and fillers expert).

  • The procedure: What does it involve?
    • Below outlines the procedure to expect on the day of Vaser Hi Def Liposuction.

      Step 1: Conscious Sedation & Incision

      Medications are given to make you feel relaxed and comfortable. Incisions (half a centimetre wide) are then made in hidden spots, to allow for the introduction of the cannula.

      Step 2: Infiltration

      The area to be reshaped is filled with a tumescent saline solution that helps numb the site and shrink the blood vessels (this helps minimise any blood loss and reduce bruising).

      Step 3: VASER

      A small probe is inserted into the treatment area. It transmits sound energy to break up and liquefy or melt the fat tissue, whilst preserving other important tissues.

      Step 4: Suction

      This technique allows the removal of the fat layer just under the skin to allow for the creation of an abdominal six-pack, with a specialised cannula designed to minimise trauma to surrounding tissue structures such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue.

      This approach promotes smooth results and rapid healing. The suction process puts specific emphasis on outlining the muscles of the upper body, like the rectus abdominis, serratus anterior, obliques, pectorals and latissimus dorsi.

      Step 5: Skin Retraction

      The heat from the ultrasound causes the skin to retract to give a smooth, natural result.

  • What is the difference between Vaser and Vaser Hi Definition Liposuction?
    • Vaser Liposuction and Vaser hi def liposuction both use ultrasound technology to break apart fat deposits for easier removal, leaving a more refined and smoother result, with less pain and less downtime.

      Vaser Liposuction  is a body contouring procedure that shapes the body by getting rid of any uneven pockets of fat. This gives a toned look to the body, with softer lines than Vaser hi def.

      Vaser High Definition goes one step further in the process of body sculpting. Developed for men and women who want a more athletic and muscular appearance, the Vaser High Definition technique removes fat from around and on-top of the muscle groups, to enhance the visibility of underlying muscles, producing ultra-defined results.

      The best candidates have good skin tone, and can feel the muscle underneath the skin, when contracting. For example Vaser High Definition would remove the small amounts of fat in-between the abs, to bring out a perfect, athletic look, six pack.

  • What are the benefits of Vaser Hi Definition Liposuction?
      • Precision: Vaser High Definition can achieve this high level of muscle definition. Other forms of liposculpture can not achieve this
      • Gentle: Vaser turns fat  tissue into a ‘butter’ like consistency, making it easier to suction out. This makes the procedure much more gentle as opposed to the ‘brick’ like consistency of fat with traditional liposuction, which is more aggressive and increases the risk of irregularities
      • Quicker Recovery: Most patients have minimal pain and bruising. Generally all patients return to work within 4-7 days. There is far less swelling and bruising when compared with traditional liposuction
      • Natural, smooth results: Patients are able to stand up during the vaser hi def procedure, allowing for further fine-tuning of the treatment.
      • Safe: Performed under conscious sedation, meaning no need for general anesthetic
      • Instant Shaping: Immediate improvements are generally seen which continue to improve over the proceeding 6 months
      • Adaptable: So precise it can be applied to delicate areas for body contouring such as inner thighs, arms, neck and chin
  • What body areas can be treated with Vaser High Definition Liposuction?
    • Vaser hi def liposuction is highly adaptable and can be used on any part of the body you wish to add definition to.

      Certain areas that are most popular for body contouring are:

      • Stomach: Carving out an athletic appearance, defined 6-pack
      • Chest: For the men, liposculpture can be used to transform man boobs into a well-shaped firm chest, with a more square shaped chest rather than a round feminine look, making your pecs more pronounced
      • Arms: Adding fine detail for that overall ripped look
      • Back: Giving the slim ‘S’ shape in women, or the desirable ‘V’ shape in men to define the lats (latissimus dorsi)
  • What can I expect after the procedure?
    • After your  vaser hi def liposuction treatment , some fluid drainage can occur from the incision point, this will normally last for 12 – 24 hours. A compression garment will need to be worn for 3 – 6 weeks to assist in reducing bruising/swelling and improve skin retraction.

      You will return home on the same day of the procedure. You will not be bed-ridden, and we encourage you to move about and not be stagnate.

      Everybody heals differently, you know your own body and we suggest you listen to it and give yourself time to heal properly. Normal daily activities can be returned to the day after the procedure, however vigorous activities such as exercise or sports must be avoided for 2-3 weeks.

      You will require regular lymphatic massages over 2 weeks, with our onsite physiotherapist or nurse. The lymphatic drainage massage helps speed up recovery by dispersing the excess fluid to help provide the best results possible. The swelling will peak at 7 – 10 days and subside at 3 -6 weeks.

      Bruising will last 2-3 weeks. At weeks 2-3 you may develop some underlying scar tissue that can be treated using PRP at our clinics. The 1/2 cm incisions will heal in under a week.

      To optimise your recovery process, become familiar with the do’s of Liposuction recovery:

      • Do wear your liposuction compression garments
      • Do maintain a healthy diet
      • Do listen to your body
      • Do take care of your surgical sites
      • Do attend post surgical check ups
  • Do The Fat Cells Come Back with Vaser Hi Def?
    • The actual number of fat cells in a persons body remains stable during your lifetime. Unless we become grossly obese you do not grow more fat cells after adolescence. When the fat tissues are removed by liposuction it is very difficult to gain fat back in those areas. The definition of the muscle will remain even if you put weight on. Your fat tissue will be evenly distributed after liposuction. These findings were published in the August issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. The full report can be read here.

  • Results. What and when can I expect them?
    • Most results from vaser hi def are obtained at 6 weeks. At this point, photo’s will be taken to assess your progress. The final results may not be apparent for 3 – 6 months post-operatively.

      Strict adherence to the pre-operative and post-operative requirements is necessary in order to achieve the best possible results.

  • Are there any risks of complications?
    • There are inherent risks and complications as there are with any surgical procedure. You should be aware of the potential risks and discuss any concerns you may have with your doctor before your surgery is performed.
