VASER Lipo is a surgical technique in which the removal of fat deposits reshapes a specific part of the body, the treatment is preformed precisely and efficiently. VASER Lipo procedure can distinguish fat from other important tissues in the treatment area such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. The innovative technology behind the VASER Lipo breaks up fat while preserving all other important tissues within the treatment area.
VASER Lipo corrects fat cells below the surface of the skin. It is suitable for people who have a healthy lifestyle, VASER Lipo is not suitable for people who are looking for a quick fix to weight loss. It is also relevant to note VASER Lipo is targeted beneath the skin and therefore does not address sagging or excess skin associated with weight loss. The results of the treatment do not correct associated conditions such as cellulite.
The VASER Lipo procedure depends on the area to be treated and the amount of fat to be removed. The procedure can be performed under a general or local anaesthetic. The area to be reformed is filled with a liquid solution that numbs the treatment area, shrinking the blood vessels (which reduces the bruising effect). The solution moistens and fills the area to be treated, making it easier for the VASER Lipo systems ultra sound to break up the fatty tissue. A small probe is then injected into the treatment area. The probe and the machine conducts sound energy to break up and melt the fatty tissue without affecting the surrounding important tissues. The procedure time is dependent on the treatment area and depth of the treatment, it can take between thirty minutes to three hours. The procedure is conducted as day surgery, generally patients can return home the same day as the procedure.
The VASER Lipo promotes rapid healing which assists in minimising the recovery requirements. Following the procedure, the patient may experience discomfort, swelling and bruising. Pain medication can be taken to assist with pain management, a cold compress will also assist with discomfort and minimising swelling and bruising. The bruising will gradually fade throughout the weeks following the procedure. The patient will be able to return to daily activities two weeks following the procedure, however strenuous activities such as vigorous exercise will require at least a month of recovery time.
This VASER Lipo approach promotes smooth results. The results will not be entirely evident until six months following the procedure. It is also notable that if the patient happens to gain weight in the long term following the procedure the new fat will be distributed in an even manner.
