Vaser liposuction, commonly known as LipoSelection or Vaser-assisted liposuction, is a minimally invasive procedure which uses ultrasound-guided technology with advanced surgical methods to break and remove fat deposits and fat tissues from the body.
Vaser is the acronym of Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. As the name suggests, sound energy is utilized for liquefying the fat globules. After the fat is liquefied, it is then aspirated using liposuction. The procedure is done in a gradual but uniform manner. Compared to the conventional tumescent liposuction procedure, the procedure is more satisfying and comfortable.
Advantages of Vaser liposuction
- Vaser procedures do not involve any bleeding. In contrast, the conventional tumescent liposuction involves making surgical incisions and is much more complex.
- Megaliposuctions that involve removal of over 10 litres of fat can safely be done
- Skin tightening and tight contraction: The VASER technique facilitates the formation of collagen. This can lead to a tighter skin compared to liposuction. VASER is normally advisable for loose abdominal skin and thigh liposuctions. These are cases where the chance of sagging is very high.
- Fat removal in difficult areas: Certain areas like thighs, female breasts, back regions, etc., are difficult in terms of removal of fat. VASER technique can be easily done in these areas.
- Excellent body contouring and skin shaping.
- Using a high definition VASER, a “six pack” appearance of the abdomen can be attained.
Vaer is Situable for:
- Liposuction of abdomen, flanks, and back
- Liposuction of breast
- Liposuction of male breast
- Liposuction of thighs
- Liposuction of buttocks
- Liposuction of arms, underarms
- Liposuction of the neck, and face
- Liposuction of calf, knees and ankles
- Hi-def VASER
Post Procedure Care
After the surgery, the patient is required to remain in the hospital for two hours until the anesthesia wears off. The patient is also monitored to assess the progress. A family member should accompany the patient, as driving is not recommended for a minimum of 48 hours after the surgery.
The surgeon may advise the patient to wear a special garment to minimize swelling and bruising. The size of the garment will depend on the area of treatment. It is recommended to be worn throughout the day for a week. It is advisable not to take a shower during this one week. After one week, the sutures and bandages are removed, and waterproof plasters are placed.
