Vaser Liposuction

Home Plastic Surgery Vaser Liposuction

VASER liposuction is a body reshaping procedure during which the fat is extracted from the subcutaneous region after it is broken up and melted using ultrasound technology. Once the fat is emulsified using ultrasound waves, the surgeon uses a needle or cannula to draw it out of the body. The added benefit of VASER liposuction is that, unlike traditional liposuction, it doesn’t cause much damage to the surrounding tissues.

VASER liposuction has become a more popular form of liposuction mainly because it delivers more accurate results. This technique allows surgeons to sculpt and contour the body with superior control.

VASER Liposuction Treatment Areas

VASER liposuction can help eliminate extra subcutaneous fat from the following body areas:

  • Chest
  • Abs
  • Arms
  • Neck and chin
  • Hips and thighs
  • Stomach and waistline
  • Upper back
  • Buttocks

Who Is Suitable For VASER Lipo?

VASER liposuction is a safe procedure. Therefore, its candidacy criteria are not quite strict. Generally, suitable candidates for this treatment are:

  • Non-smokers
  • Adults with no more than 30% of extra body weight over what could have been their ideal weight
  • Overall healthy individuals who do suffer any life-threatening condition or other illnesses known to impair healing
  • People with specific body-contouring goals

VASER liposuction generally helps break down fat pockets that do not seem to go away with exercise or dietary adjustments.

Is VASER liposuction Done Under Anesthesia?

Yes, the surgeon administers anesthesia before proceeding with VASER liposuction. The types of anesthesia used during VASER liposuction are general, sedation, and local. The surgeon will choose from these types depending on the treatment area and the quantity of fat to be removed. Generally, local anesthesia is the most widely used option during VASER liposuction. The solution most commonly used in this regard is tumescent fluid, an anesthesia type that numbs a sizeable subcutaneous area.

VASER Liposuction Procedure

The surgeon proceeds with the VASER liposuction procedure once the anesthesia comes into effect. Here is an overview of the steps involved in this procedure.

  • The surgeon first makes small incisions in the treatment area. These incisions are strategically placed to avoid visible scarring.
  • After that, they administer ultrasound waves to the target fat cells by inserting a probe into the subcutaneous layer through incisions. This probe releases ultrasonic waves that cause fat cells to vibrate and liquify. The probe is removed once the target amount of fat is thawed.
  • In the final step, specialized cannulas or tubes are used to initiate the suction process, eliminating liquefied fat cells from the body.

How Long Does The Vaser Lipo Procedure Take?

The time taken by VASER liposuction depends on the treatment area. Generally, treating one large body area with VASER liposuction may take an hour or two. It’s much less time than what traditional liposuction can take.

What Can I expect After Vaser Lipo?

There will be some bruising and swelling in the body areas treated with VASER liposuction. The treatment results are not usually instantly visible since your body needs some time to recover from the impact of surgery.

The surgeon will prescribe sterilized cotton pads to cover the incisions to deal with the oozy fluid for a day or two. You will also need to drink extra fluid to promote a quicker removal of the anesthesia from your body. Moreover, you may need to continue wearing compression clothes for a few weeks to deal with the swelling.

The final results of VASER liposuction usually start becoming visible in three to six months. Some people may even get these results in two months. These results are in the form of improved body contouring, reshaping your overall appearance.

How Long Does It Take To Recover From Vaser Lipo?

The average recovery duration after VASER liposuction is five to seven days, during which you will need to stay away from any strenuous activities and rest at home. You will start seeing treatment results once this recovery duration is over.
