Vaser High Def Liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure for men and women who would like to reveal muscle definition that’s being hidden by a layer of fat. By using ultrasound-assisted liposuction, the experts at Cosmos Clinic can remove pockets of fat to give the body a more athletic and sculpted appearance.
The technique is similar to other liposuction methods that utilise ultrasound. The technology uses ultrasound waves to disrupt or break apart the bonds that bind fat cells together for easier removal. Vaser Hi Def Liposuction goes one step further; it precisely removes localised adipose tissue in areas such as the abdomen, flanks, chest (males), legs and arms.
Why choose Vaser Hi Def Liposuction, Canberra?
Vaser Hi Def Liposuction offers some advantages over other techniques. It has a unique ability to target fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue such as nerves and blood vessels. This makes the treatment much less invasive than traditional liposuction. As a result, patients tend to experience less bleeding, fewer contour irregularities and complications. Vaser Hi Def Liposuction has also shown to produce mild to moderate skin-tightening effects.
Who is the best candidate for Vaser Hi Def Liposuction?
Vaser Hi Def Liposuction is designed for men and women who are in relatively good shape and close to their ideal body weight. The best candidate is someone who exercises regularly, follows a healthy diet and lifestyle, but has a difficult time achieving muscular definition in areas such as abdominals, pectoral or oblique muscles.
How Vaser Hi Def Liposuction is performed
Gentle sedation – general anaesthesia is not required although it’s an option. For patients who choose conscious sedation, medications are available to minimise pain and discomfort, and make them more comfortable during the procedure.
Tumescent solution – the procedure starts with making tiny incisions in the skin, followed by injecting a saline solution to help loosen stubborn fat cells and numb the area(s) being treated.
Vaser ultrasound – a small probe that transmits ultrasound energy is inserted which further breaks up the fat cells, allowing them to be easily suctioned away without harming the surrounding tissue.
Liposuction – A small cannula is used by the surgeon to remove adipose tissue both superficially and in the deeper layers. The goal is to target fat cells around the muscle groups to enhance the visibility of underlying muscles, producing ultra-defined results.
What to expect after the procedure
After treatment patients may experience mild swelling and bruising. Any discomfort can be managed with pain medication and the use of compression garments. Drainage tubes may be inserted into the treatment areas to collect fluids for the first few days after treatment.
Most patients are able to return to work and other regular activities within a few days to a week. Strenuous exercise and other activities are not recommended and best avoided for 2-3 weeks after treatment. Swelling will continue to decrease, and skin will continue to retract up to 6 months after surgery. Scars will usually heal and become less noticeable over time.
How much does the procedure cost?
Vaser Hi Def Liposuction Canberra starts at $7000 and up depending on the area(s) being treated.
What areas of the body can be treated with Vaser Hi Def Liposuction?
The most popular treatment areas are stomach, chest, arms and back. Other parts of the body can be contoured, including:
Thighs (outer, inner and middle)
What is the difference between Vaser and traditional liposuction?
The main difference between Vaser Liposuction and traditional liposuction is the use of ultrasound. Traditional liposuction methods use a cannula and suction to remove fat cells. Vaser Liposuction is an advanced technique that utilises an ultrasonic device to break up or liquefy the fat cells first, followed by extraction with a cannula.
Both techniques are effective at removing unwanted fat; however, Vaser liposuction is gentler and results in less trauma and downtime. Vaser Hi Def Liposuction is the next level in Vaser technology because it removes stubborn fat to precisely sculpt and contour the body.
When will results be visible?
Patients will notice an immediate improvement after surgery; however, some swelling is normal for the first 3-4 weeks. This may affect how the treatment area looks and some patience is needed to see the final outcome. The final results will be visible 4-6 months after surgery because it takes that long for the body to completely heal.
How long do the results of Vaser Hi Def last?
As long as the patient maintains an active and healthy lifestyle, their results should be permanent or last a long time. Gaining a small amount of weight should not affect the results too much but significant weight gain can make the treated areas to look less defined.
