Suitable for candidates who wish to remove fat from
- Outer and inner thighs
- Abdomen (belly or stomach)
- Flanks (love handles)
- Arms (bingo wings)
- Male chest reduction (gynecomastia)
- Chin, knees, back or buttocks
VASER (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) uses the most advanced ultrasound technology to break down fat cells, which are then removed from your body through a suction process – leaving adjacent structures intact.
At Novomed Aesthetica, we also have the luxury of enhancing the results using Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL). This technique combines suctioning of the fat with oscillation of the cannula to increase the efficiency of fat removal. VASER Liposuction and VASER Hi-Def are different to surgical liposuction because they use state-of-the-art ultrasound technology to reshape the body.
Advantages of VASER Liposuction
- VASER Lipo does not require a general anesthetic
- Minimally invasive – no damage to other body tissues
- Minimal risk of bleeding, bruising and discomfort
- Minimal downtime – VASER Lipo is a walk-in walk-out procedure
- Less scarring, less bruising
- Stimulates collagen production, resulting in tighter skin for many patients, while conventional liposuction may occasionally result in sagging skin.
- Improved overall shape and contours of your body. VASER Lipo results are very soft and natural-looking. For those who prefer a more athletic, sculpted look, VASER Hi-Definition may be a better option.
Predictability Our experience tells us that VASER Liposuction is the most effective minimally invasive method of removing unwanted fat from your body, creating a defined and sculpted area with minimal risks and downtime. The improved overall appearance of the treated areas become evident within 1-3 months following the procedure.
Discomfort during the procedure 2/10. The physician gently numbs the skin and then makes a tiny incision in the targeted area, infusing a saline solution mixed with lidocaine and epinephrine to help shrink blood vessels and numb the area to be treated. If you prefer, we can use mild intravenous sedation for this part of the procedure.
Downtime 2-5 days. The ultrasound energy only targets fat cells, leaving surrounding tissues undamaged which involves minimal downtime.
Cost Depends on the extent of treated area and level of correction desired. You may discuss during financing options during your visit.
Hi Def Vaser restrictions Avoid Aspirin, Vitamin E, fish oil and most painkillers except Tylenol® for ten days before. The small incisions made during the procedure will not require stitches. Since there may be some bruising and swelling, we advise that you wait 2-3 weeks before you hit the gym or do any rigorous physical activity. Arrange for a friend or relative to take you home following treatment.
Hi Def Vaser downtime The downtime and aftercare regime for high-def is longer than VASER Liposuction and does require some commitment from you. Discuss this with your surgeon.
Hi Def Vaser cost Depends on the extent of treated area and level of correction desired. Larger areas or those seeking a six-pack look must be prepared to pay more especially if the procedure require general anesthesia such as addressing your front and back simultaneously.
What happens during the VASER liposuction procedure?
Liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia administered by a board-certified physician-anaesthesiologist. The initial step consists of infiltration of the tissues with local anaesthetic. This is known as the ‘tumescent’ technique and greatly enhances the efficiency of liposuction and reduces the amount of blood loss. The surgeon then uses cannulas (hollow tubes) of a variety of different configurations and diameters to carefully aspirate unwanted fat from various areas.
Typically, the amount of fat removed in a liposuction procedure is from 1,000 cc (one litre) all the way up to 5,000 cc (five litres). Patients are observed in the recovery area for an hour or two after the procedure and then are discharged to return to their homes. Pressure garments or binders are applied to the areas where liposuction has been performed, and it is recommended that these garments are worn most of the time for the first four to six weeks after the procedure.
What is the difference between VASER Liposuction and VASER High-Def?
VASER Hi-Def liposuction can be used to sculpt around the musculature giving an athletic look. This is the perfect treatment for those who want defined abs, the perfect six-pack or the appearance of gym-toned pectorals. VASER Liposuction is the best option for anyone wanting a softer appearance.
