Vaser Liposuction

Vaser stands for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance. It is known to be a technique that uses ultrasound waves to break the fat cells and makes them easier to extract.

What is Vaser Liposuction?

Vaser liposuction is an innovative and advanced cosmetic procedure designed to remove stubborn fat deposits and sculpt the body with precision. Unlike traditional liposuction, Vaser liposuction utilizes ultrasound technology to target and break down fat cells, while minimizing damage to surrounding tissues. This minimally invasive technique involves the injection of a tumescent solution to numb the area and shrink blood vessels, followed by the insertion of small probes that emit ultrasound waves, specifically targeting fat cells. The liquefied fat is then gently suctioned out, resulting in smoother contours and enhanced definition. Vaser liposuction offers numerous advantages, including reduced downtime, less trauma to the body, and the ability to treat various areas such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, and chin. With its ability to achieve precise sculpting and natural-looking results, Vaser liposuction has become a popular choice for individuals seeking to refine their body shape and regain confidence in their appearance.

The procedure for Vaser liposuction

The procedure of the Vaser liposuction may sound complicated at once, but it is straightforward once it is explained. It should be mentioned that the process of Vaser liposuction is highly dependent on the area that the doctor targets and the amount of fat the site has.

Many liposuction procedures will be done with the help of local anesthesia. During the procedures, the following will be done.

  • The surgeon makes a small incision and inserts inserting the cannulas.
  • You will be injected with a numbing saline solution.
  • The Vaser will be used to break the fat cells from the surrounding tissues needed.
  • And last but not least, the body will be free from fat cells with the help of suction.
  • After the process, it is common to expect to swell, bruise, and even a bit of discomfort, but these are all temporary. You do not have to worry about them.

The Benefits of Vaser Liposuction

The process has many benefits, and it is why a lot of people desire to undergo the Vaser liposuction process.

The benefits are:

  • Vaser liposuction is an easy procedure and is very precise in removing undesirable excess fat.
  • Vaser liposuction helps in fast body contouring.
  • Less time for recovery is required as less tissue trauma is involved.
  • Vaser liposuction causes a small amount of pain and discomfort.
  • The incisions made in the body for Vaser lipo are much smaller than the traditional liposuction method.
  • In Vaser lipo, the body regenerates faster than in traditional liposuction.
  • In Vaser liposuction, a large amount of fat can be removed in one session.
  • Last but not least it has a very high satisfaction rate.

Now that you know about Vaser liposuction and its benefits let us go ahead and read about the different types of liposuction that are done today as well.

What is the difference between Vaser liposuction and traditional liposuction?

During liposuction surgery, the fat is completely removed from the surgical site. However, in the Vaser liposuction technology, ultrasound energy warms the deep layers of the skin, and the stimulation of fibroblast cells causes collagen and elastin production. This procedure causes the skin to tighten up to 30% in the first days and 40% in the first 3 to 4 weeks.

The incisions made in the body for Vaser lipo are much smaller than the traditional liposuction method.
In this operation, fats are converted into a liquid using special waves to remove resistant fats from the body. As a result, a suction device removes excess fat from the body much more easily.

Vaser liposuction costs around the world

The price of Vaser liposuction varies depending on the location, surgeon fee, and type of clinic or hospital. Based on ISAPS, IMTJ & GOMED reports, the price of Vaser liposuction in some countries are:

  • The United States: $3,500-6,500
  • Canada: Starting from $6,900
  • The United Kingdom: Starting from $3,300
  • Australia: Starting from $4,400
  • Iran: Starting from $2000

What are the common areas for Vaser liposuction?

Vaser lipo can be used for different parts of the body. For example, neck, thighs, abdomen, chin, shoulders, face, chest, and knees. As Vaser lipo is minimally invasive, the surgeon can easily perform it on small areas such as the cheeks.

Types of Liposuction

There are five famous types of liposuction. They are:

The traditional liposuction process

In the traditional liposuction process, small areas of fat are removed, such as lipoma and a bulge. This surgery is a procedure to remove excess fat from beneath the skin with a small suction device, known as a “cannula,” which is inserted under the skin for doing the suction procedure and after breaking down the fat with different techniques like laser and ultrasound.

The Body-Jet or Water Assisted Liposuction

The second type of liposuction is done to enhance the traditional technique of injecting anesthesia to carry out the process of liposuction.

With the help of this liposuction type, one can get rid of a huge amount of fat, mainly from problematic areas like breasts, etc.

Power-assisted liposuction

The third type of liposuction is the power-assisted one. Micro Aire and diplomatic are considered the two types of mechanically enhanced techniques done today.

In the process, fat is removed as a motorized cannula shifts back and forth along sideways. Power-assisted liposuction is very famous among surgeons mainly because it needs less effort.

Laser-assisted liposuction

It is one of the most successful liposuction procedure types. The pioneer of liposuction is available and has ample experience in this type. There are high chances of skin tightening in the liposuction process, especially in the inner thighs and arms.

The cellulase

The final type of liposuction. The submission is a minor surgical technique where the fibers are cut down through small stabs. Cellulase does the work with the help of a laser, and it has another laser that shrinks the skin for better results.
