Vaser Lipo

February 19, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 178

Vaser Lipo is the new revolutionary, ultra-sound assisted liposuction procedure that involves precise sculpting of delicate areas of the body by selectively emulsifying fat tissues prior to aspiration. It is a much safer and minimally invasive procedure that results to dramatic reshaping of the body. Unlike the traditional liposuction which usually leaves tissue trauma and could be very risky, Vaser Lipo provides smooth predictable results with less blood loss, pain and tissue trauma.

Who Can Benefit From It

Like any other surgical procedures, be it minor or major, a client must first be checked for any underlying contraindication that could put the client's life in danger. Patients with diabetes, heart and lung problems as well as those with history of blood clots are not permitted to undergo this procedure. Ideally, a suitable client for Vaser Lipo must be in good overall health.

Since it offers precise extraction of fatty tissues, clients who wish to remove unwanted fats in tight, fibrous areas could opt for Vaser Lipo. Clients that prefer either small or large-volume fat removal could generally benefit from this procedure.

What Areas of the Body Can Be Treated

Generally, Vaser Lipo is used for treating specific areas that do not respond to changes in diet and exercise. Whether minor touch-ups or great transformations, one can go for this procedure. Cosmetic surgeons can use this for both delicate areas, like the chin and neck, as well as larger areas such as the thigh, back and abdomen.


This Vaser Lipo uses a technique called LipoSelection, which is the selective emulsification of fat tissues prior to gradual removal of the unwanted fat. This could be done under general anesthesia or as a 'wide-awake' surgery. It can be performed in a surgical room, outpatient department or in a physician's clinic. The procedure begins with the selected area being injected with "tumescent fluid". This fluid is a special saline solution that basically numbs the area and shrinks the surrounding blood vessels. This ultimately expands the targeted area allowing easy removal of the unwanted fats without harming the local blood vessels. Once the numbing starts to creep in, small-diameter probes are inserted into the area through 4-6 mm incisions. With the use of ultrasonic energy that produces high frequency vibrations or sound waves, the probes will literally shake the surrounding fats until they break loose. Once the fats loosen up, they automatically mix with the saline solution injected earlier. Through gentle and gradual suction, the fluid, now with the fats mix with it, is then removed from the body using the same probes.

Recovery Period

Right after the surgery, patients are provided with a special garment for skin compression to help it form towards the new body area contour. The patient is then given 12 hours for rest and advised to not take strenuous activities for 2-3 weeks. Normally, results will appear as soon as the procedure is done but it will continue to improve for 2-3 months as the surrounding tissues heal.

Side Effects

Because Vaser Lipo is still an invasive procedure, there are still notable side effects that patients should expect. These are the following:

Bruising and swelling

Because Vaser Lipo does not harm the surrounding blood vessels, there are just less bruising and swelling, unlike in other forms of liposuction. Most patients report that the swelling and bruising will disappear in 1-2 days time.

Fat drainage

It is normal to expect fat drainage from the incisions after the procedure. This however, last for 1-4 hours post-operative.
