VASERLipo® is an advanced body contouring procedure that selectively removes unwanted body fat.
An alternative to the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction, VASERLipo® uses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology designed to gently melt fat before its removed with a specialised cannula. It is powerful enough to eliminate substantial areas of fat, but gentle enough to treat delicate areas, such as the neck and arms. VASERLipo® is the most advanced Liposculpture technique available and requires years of dedicated hands on experience and training to yield the best and most consistent results.
Benefits of VASER Lipo
- Extremely effective in treating fibrous areas such as the upper abdomen and back
- Very efficient method of extracting large volumes of fat
- Can be used for high definition liposculpture
- Can create a six pack when treating the abdomen
How Does VASERLipo Work?
First, the area to be reshaped is filled with a tumescent saline solution.
Next, a small probe which transmits Ultrasound Energy is passed through the fat in a gentle fanning motion, to help dislodge the fat and melt it. A thin tube, called a Cannula, will then be introduced to gently remove the dislodged fat through a gentle suction process.
About VASER Liposuction
How Does it Differ from Traditional Liposuction?
The VASERLipo® procedure is unique in its ability to spare important tissues while targeting unwanted fat. The technology dislodges fat cells from the fatty tissue matrix while leaving all other important tissues intact, resulting in smooth results and rapid healing. In layman’s terms, the VASERLipo® wand disrupts or “melts” the fat making it extremely easy to gently and effectively suction it out through specialised micro-cannulae.
What Body Areas can be Treated with VASERLipo®?
We have experienced great success in treating all of the following areas:
- Jowls, chin, and neck
- Abdomen, hips and love handles
- Back, buttocks and thighs
- Arms and bra fat
- Male and female breasts
- Knees, calves, and ankles
Can you Treat Multiple Areas at Once? How much fat can be taken in One Procedure?
The VASERLipo® technology allows us to treat multiple body areas at one time, in one procedure. Although there are limits to the amount of fat that can be removed, Dr Paraskevas will assist you with your decision about potential areas for sculpting, anticipated results and how much fat will be removed during a consultation appointment.
Is There a Recovery Period of Special After Care?
Yes, VASERLipo® is a minimally invasive liposuction procedure, and there is a short period of rest, typically 12 hours, immediately after the procedure, followed by two to three weeks of general recovery when strenuous activities should be avoided. We will also provide a special compression garment to help the skin contract smoothly to the body’s new contours and general instructions for post procedure care.
How soon will I see results?
Noticeable results vary according to the amount of fat removed, the number of areas treated and other factors. Many patients report that they see results immediately after the procedure with the final results around three to four months later. During your consultation, Dr Paraskevas can help you establish realistic expectations.
What about Future Weight Gain or Fat Migrating to Other Areas?
Once you have fat removed, it’s gone. Assuming a healthy lifestyle of proper diet and exercise, it will not return or migrate. However, because fat is necessary to a healthy body, some essential fatty layers in any given area remain untreated. If you experience weight gain or loss after your VASERLipo® procedure, it will tend to be proportionately distributed over your entire boy. Normal aging changes can also be expected.
Is it Safe?
VASERLipo® has an excellent safety record. However, the procedure is not without risk. Dr Paraskevas will discuss these risks at your initial consultation.
How Much does the VASERLipo® Procedure Cost?
VASERLipo® is customize to your needs, so the cost of the procedure will vary from person to person depending on the number of body areas treated and the extensiveness of the procedure.
