Vaser High Def Liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure for contouring the body. VASER stands for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance. The technology uses ultrasound waves to disrupt or break apart the bonds that bind fat cells together for easier removal.
The technique is similar to other liposuction that uses ultrasound, only this procedure more precisely targets localised fat in areas such as the abdomen, flanks, chest (males), legs and arms. Furthermore, it strategically leaves a thin layer of fat behind over underlying muscles to create a more athletic and sculpted appearance.
Why choose Vaser Hi Def Liposuction, Sydney?
Studies show that Vaser Hi Def Liposuction offers some advantages over other techniques. The biggest benefit is it’s less invasive than traditional liposuction. The ultrasound liquefies fat in the body without damaging other tissue. This results in less bleeding, fewer contour irregularities and complications. Additionally, for patients who are looking to achieve a more sculpted and smooth appearance, Vaser produces superior tissue retraction (skin tightening effects).
Who is the best candidate for Vaser Hi Def Liposuction?
Vaser Hi Def Liposuction is most suitable for patients who are close to their ideal body weight and follow a healthy lifestyle. Being in excellent overall health with good muscle and skin tone can produce even better results. Since the procedure is not intended as a weight loss tool, it’s ideal for men and women with stubborn or unresponsive fatty deposits who want to achieve a more athletic and muscular appearance.
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 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:
When will results be visible?
Liposuction is the leading cosmetic procedure because the results are visible right away. Many patients find that as the swelling and bruising subside, their results continue to improve for up to six months following treatment. Typically, the final outcome is fully visible eight weeks after surgery.
Are results permanent?
Once the fat cells have been removed through liposuction, they will not regenerate or grow back. In that sense yes, the results of liposuction are permanent. If a substantial amount of weight is gained after the procedure, however, the treatment areas (along with other parts of the body) may be altered. The goal for patients is to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle.
Are there any risks or complications associated with Vaser Hi Def Liposuction?
Vaser Hi Def Liposuction is a safe, minimally-invasive procedure with minimal downtime, discomfort and a low occurrence of serious side-effects. As with any surgical procedure, however, there is some risk of developing complications such as infection, scars, allergic reactions, swelling, bruising or unsatisfactory outcome. In some cases the procedure needs to be repeated for optimum results. Choosing a qualified and experienced surgeon can help patients reduce serious health risks associated with liposuction and ensure the best possible results.
