Please make sure to watch the video about Vaser lipo

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is one of the most popular aesthetic operations, worldwide. Liposuction removes excess fatty tissue from different areas of the body refining and sculpting the body, as well as correcting contour deformities.

 

What is VASER Lipo?

VASER Lipo is an advanced form of liposuction, which can be used in order to treat stubborn pockets of fat with even greater accuracy compared to classical liposuction.

This innovative form of liposuction, can be also used in order to improve the shape of the selected areas in your body by removing stubborn areas of fatty tissue. As a result, the body is refined, especially in areas like abdomen, upper arms and thighs.

The acronym VASER, stands for “Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance”. It is about a specialized ultrasound technology, which is used in order to break down fat cells, sending very high frequency waves.

Once fat cells have been destroyed, the Plastic Surgeon is able to remove stubborn areas of fat through surgical aspiration.

 

Who is a good candidate for a VASER lipo?

Candidates for a VASER lipo, are the following:

  • people with stubborn areas of fat that have not been able to loose with diet and exercise
  • people who would like to naturally improve, as well as sculpture, the shape of selected areas in their bodies
  • people who are not obese
  • people who have satisfactory skin elasticity, which will contribute to an optimal result
  • people without medical conditions which delay recovery
  • people with realistic expectations

What are the advantages of VASER lipo?

Thanks to the ultrasound technology, VASER lipo has many advantages in comparison to traditional liposuction.

One of the most important, is the minimization of damage to the surrounding tissues. Also, the results are more predictable and consequently superior to those of classical liposuction. Fat liquefaction makes its gradual removal easier, offering accurate surgical navigation of the movements.

Finally, the recovery is faster and it’s the most appropriate technique in order to naturally improve the shape of the selected areas such as the abdominal muscles. There is international literature supporting that VASER lipo has an optimal result as well as skin tightening.

 

In which parts of the body Vaser lipo can be performed?

 VASER lipo and liposculpturing is an ideal solution not only for men, but also for women and can be performed in the following body parts: abdomenfat deposits around the waistthighs and knees as well as neck area, in order to treat “double chin”.

Vaser lipo, can also treat successfully with more accuracy, cases of gynecomastia in men.

 

How does VASER lipo can be performed?

VASER lipo, like the classical lipo can be performed under local anaesthesiasedation or general anaesthesia, depending on the areas that need to be operated, as well as on how serious the problem is.

Initially, a special fluid is injected into the areas that need to be corrected, in order to desensitize them, thus, contributing to the contraction of blood vesselsminimizing bleeding and swelling.

Then, through a special machine that emits ultrasonic waves, excess fat is liquified while the surrounding skin remains intact.

In the final stage, liquified fat is removed through liposuction, which is specially designed in order to minimize injuries to the surrounding tissues.

 

Post-operatively

Immediately after the surgical procedure, you will have small gauzes on the incisions. During your recovery, you will need to wear a post-op compression garment, depending on the area that has been operated. This period refers to the first post-op month, in order to minimize swelling and restore skin elasticity faster.

Patients are discharged on the same day, following the procedure.

In general, VASER lipo is a safe, painless and effective surgical procedure, which is performed with great success.

 

What are the results?

The results after VASER lipo are immediate offering an impressive improvement in the overall contour and symmetry.

Apart from better external appearance and the achievement of an optimal result, it is important to mention that the results have considerable psychological benefits, improving self-esteem and social confidence.

 

Risks and safety information

In general, liposuction is a safe, painless and effective surgical procedure, which is performed with great success.

However, like any other surgical procedure, liposuction has some risks, potential complications and safety data sheet, that every patient should be aware of and fully understand.

The most important potential complications are the following:

  • Bruising and bleeding
  • Dull ache at the incision line
  • Poor scaring
  • Hyperpigmentation, degrees of asymmetry or skin irregularities
  • Prolonged swelling in the first few days or even weeks post-op
  • Loose skin

The first week post-op, patients should remain alert for signs of infection. Consult a doctor immediately, if you start having any of the following signs after VASER lipo:

  • Greenish or yellow discharge
  • Fever
  • Nausea, vomiting or dizziness
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Fatigue and/or exhaustion
