Do you want to have a toned figure, a flat tummy without struggle? No doubt both women and men will say “Yes.” However, in our fast-paced world, people simply do not have the time to pay enough attention to their health and body. Now getting the perfect figure is possible with VASER liposuction.
What is VASER Liposuction?
VASER liposuction is a new word in cosmetic surgery and the most gentle surgical technique for eliminating local fat deposits. This technology allows us to remove fat cells carefully from places of excessive accumulation and, if desired, transfer them to another area.
The main advantage of VASER liposuction is the use of ultrasound to destroy fat cells. Blood vessels and nerve endings are more resistant to ultrasound, so they are not damaged during the procedure.
Under the influence of the VASER apparatus, subcutaneous fat changes its characteristics and can be carefully removed through small punctures.
By converting adipose tissue into the emulsion in areas where body contours are corrected, VASER technology can be performed with minimal damage to surrounding tissues, thus reducing blood and fluid loss, and reducing pain and trauma.
VASER liposuction is the most gentle body contouring operation, which attracts more and more doctors and cosmetic surgery patients. It produces visible results while being a minimally invasive procedure. Minimally invasive means that the procedure is done with tiny incisions instead of large cuts. There will be minimal scarring as well as drastic reduction in the risks of traditional surgery.
What Areas Can Be Treated With VASER Liposuction?
VASER liposuction allows us to sculpt even small and very sensitive areas: chin, pubic area, etc. However, the most popular areas for VASER liposuction are:
- belly and sides;
- external and internal side of the hips, buttocks;
- chest area in men;
What Are the Benefits?
Advantages of VASER Liposuction over surgery:
- Less traumatic intervention;
- Shorter recovery period;
- Lower risk of developing aesthetic complications (formation of dimples, bumps, and uneven skin).
What are the key differences between VASER liposuction and traditional laser liposuction?
The main difference between the procedures is that traditional laser liposuction uses very focused thermal energy to destroy fat cells.
Since laser focuses on one point, it has higher risk of burns. VASER liposuction emits energy evenly. VASER liquefies fat cells more efficiently than laser, which allows us to remove more fat cells compared to laser liposuction.
What Should I Expect from the procedure?
During the procedure, local anesthesia with a mild sedative effect is used. Tiny incisions are made to conduct the intervention.
Recovery period follows after the procedure. It is recommended that you follow the instructions of your cosmetic surgeon.
Pain usually disappears a few days after the procedure, bruises and swelling disappear after 5-12 days. Patient can return to work in a couple of days (if work does not require heavy physical activity).
Any, even minimally invasive intervention, is stress for the body. It is extremely important to monitor your well-being, suspend heavy physical activity, and get enough sleep.
How Long Does It Take For The Results to Show?
With VASER liposuction, results are visible after 6 weeks for most patients. However, in rare cases, it can take up to 6 months. It also depends on postoperative care.
How much does VASER liposuction cost?
Cost of the procedure varies by patient based on several factors. During your initial consultation, our team will discuss the cost of your procedure and share information about financing options.
