What is VASER liposuction?
VASER liposuction, also known as High Deﬁnition Vaser Liposuction, is a procedure that involves the removal of fat located in areas such as the abdomen, hips, waist, or thighs. The difference between this technique and traditional Liposuction is that the cannula used in this case contains a device that emits ultrasonic waves that act selectively on the fatty tissue.
It helps to make the fat liquid to facilitate its extraction. In this process other tissues such as blood vessels and nerves are not affected, thus reducing pain and inﬂammation in the postoperative period. This procedure is much requested by both men and women who, although they are physically ﬁt, want greater visibility of their muscles.
Who can have VASER liposuction?
It is ideal for people who have a good general state of health, who are in good physical condition, who are not overweight, and who are looking to eliminate the accumulation of fat in certain areas. They are also recommended to people who have already had liposuction and want to improve their silhouette.
What results can I expect from VASER liposuction?
With the Vaser High Deﬁnition, excellent results are obtained in the remodeling of the silhouette. By extracting fat selectively, respecting the anatomy and muscle groups this procedure gives way to a perfectly deﬁned athletic physique. It is the right treatment for people in good physical condition, who lead a healthy lifestyle, perform physical exercise, but who fail to achieve the deﬁnition and muscle tone they want.
VASER liposuction | Consultation process
The patient will be evaluated before the procedure to check if they are a viable candidate and discuss their options and expectations. Any questions regarding the procedures or medications you are currently taking should be discussed with your doctor. During the consultation, the doctor will make a series of recommendations before performing the Vaser High Deﬁnition.
VASER liposuction | Technique and protocol
The surgeon makes a series of incisions of about 2 mm in the area to intervene and injects a kind of tumescent saline.
Then the special High Deﬁnition cannula will be introduced, which when emitting the high-frequency ultrasound waves, separates the fat cells from the tissues to which they are attached.
This cannula is speciﬁcally prepared to selectively extract the fat.
And it gives the patient the athletic appearance they want.
This procedure can be performed with local anesthesia plus sedation or with general anesthesia.
VASER liposuction | Recovery and postoperative care
The Vaser High Deﬁnition procedure does not require a very long recovery period, although this depends largely on the number of areas that have been sculpted.
Medical recommendations are usually similar to those corresponding to traditional liposuction.
The patient must rest for at least ten days, limiting themself from performing activities that require physical strength. Then the patient must be able to resume his daily activities while respecting the medical advice.
