Vaser Liposelection is also known as Vaser-assisted liposuction. It is a liposuction procedure that uses high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) to break up fat deposits before the fats are physically sucked out. This loosens up the fat pockets, which in turn reduces the effort to suck out the fat cells.
So what we can achieve with Vaser-assisted Liposuction is an effective liposuction (ie. large areas can be treated with less surgeon exhaustion), potentially less skin unevenness, and with less trauma. It is worth noting here that the best liposuction results depends on the surgeon, no matter what tools he uses.
The recovery time depends on the extent areas treated. For the thighs, most of our vaser liposelection patients are up and about the next day. Bed rest is not necessary, but their movements might be a little slower because of the soreness. They might even be back in the gym the following week.
Any liposuction procedure is performed in a Day Surgery OT with and anaesthetist. The amount that can be treated in a session really actually depends on the safe amounts of tumescent anaesthesia that can be injected in a session. But MOH has regulations in place to limit the amount of supernatant fat to 2L (updated March 2015).
High definition Vaser means we sculpt the patient’s layer of fat into muscle shapes. Or else we can also suck nearer to the skin so that the muscle shapes beneath are revealed.
Either way, vaser or other techniques, liposuction is not a weight reduction tool. It is a body-sculpting and contouring treatment that is best suited for small areas of disproportion like the saddle bags, the abdomen and love-handles or the breasts in men.
