Vaser Liposuction removes fat quickly, easily and effectively, resulting in optimal body sculpting. Vaser Liposuction (also known as Vaser Lipo) is a straightforward procedure and is suitable for removing stubborn areas of fat.
What are the advantages of Vaser Liposuction?
When compared with traditional liposuction, Vaser Liposuction produces improved results. This is because it:
- removes more fat within a shorter time and is therefore suitable for large areas of the body
- produces better skin tightening
- provides noticeable results quicker
- has minimal downtime
- is gentler on your body with less bruising
- is a less invasive procedure that ensures a faster recovery.
How does Vaser Liposuction work?
A small probe is inserted between the skin and muscle layers and ultrasound energy is transmitted to break up fatty tissues. Gentle suction is then applied to remove the liquefied fat.
How long does Vaser Liposuction take?
On average, Vaser Liposuction takes two hours. However, this may vary according to the patient and the size of the area to be treated.
Is Vaser Liposuction painful?
The Vaser Lipo procedure is completely painless since it is carried out under a local anaesthetic.
Although some discomfort is usually felt afterwards as a result of swelling and bruising, this discomfort wouldn’t affect your daily activities and could be easily managed with pain relief medicine.
Which areas of the body can benefit from Vaser Liposuction?
Vaser Liposuction can be performed on most areas of the body, including:
When can you start exercising again?
You can resume light exercise a week or ten days after having Vaser Liposucion. Wait about a month before going back to the gym or doing strenuous exercise.
Are there any risks associated with the Vaser Lipo procedure?
The risks associated with Vaser Lipo are minimal. They include a very small risk of skin burns from the ultrasound device, slight skin discoloration, and a minimal risk of bacterial infection.
However, the likelihood of any of these risks occurring is extremely low if the procedure is carried out by a qualified, competent and highly experienced clinician like Dr Vlok.
When will you start seeing results?
It is possible to start seeing results immediately after the procedure, but the final results are usually visible around 3 to 6 months later.
How long will it take to recover?
The recovery process for Vaser Lipo is quicker than for conventional liposuction. This is because there is much less bruising during the fat removal process.
Dr Vlok advises his patients to maintain a healthy lifestyle by eating nutritious food and exercising regularly. This is to ensure that the results of Vaser Lipo are sustainable and permanent.Book Your Initial Consultation
