Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance
The precise technology of VASER Lipo:
--VASER is an acronym that stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance.
--VASER Lipo uses a minimally invasive technique called LipoSelection to selectively break apart and gently remove unwanted fat. It uses state-of-the-art ultrasonic energy to emulsify subcutaneous fat and helps its removal by liposuction.
--This ultrasonic energy is highly fat specific and causes least damage to surrounding structures like the blood vessels, nerves, muscles, tendons, bones, joints etc.
--This peculiar quality makes its use very safe and achieve high degree of precision body contouring.
How does it differ from conventional liposuction?
--Regular liposuction involves manual avulsion and aspiration of fat globules. It is significantly more traumatic to the tissue and some injury to the surrounding structures like blood vessels and nerves.
--Vaser lipo involves emulsifying of fatty tissue and its easy safe aspiration of fat with minimal blood loss, less pain and least damage to surrounding structures like blood vessels, nerves, muscles, tendons, bones, joints etc
How is VASER Liposuction done?
--As per your requirement VASER liposuction is done under local, regional, or general anaesthesia
--To begin the procedure, the targeted area is injected with a special saline solution known as "tumescent fluid." Tumescent fluid numbs the target area and shrinks local blood vessels (to minimize blood loss and reduce bruising). It also temporarily expands the volume of the targeted area, making fat cells easier to remove.
--Thin probes are then inserted into the body through tiny holes. By resonating at a high ultrasonic frequency, the probes literally shake loose fat cells, while leaving blood vessels, nerves and connective tissues unharmed.
--The loose fat cells mix with the tumescent fluid, which is then removed from the body using gentle suction.
--After the surgery, patients are prescribed a recovery regimen to promote maximum skin retraction and smooth results.
How is the post operative period ?
--You are encouraged to move around as soon as you are comfortable as it will assist in your recovery.
--You are encouraged to drink lot of fluids as to flush your system and maintain hydration.
--You will be allowed a normal meal by the end of the day.
--In case of very minimal liposuction you may be discharged within 24 hours. Usually you will be discharged after 24-36 hours. But you may need to stay for a few days in the hospital if the fat removal is in large volume.
--The surgical access points may be left unstitched to allow for the edema fluid to flow out. This may be a bit messy as the fluid flow can look worrying to some. You may need frequent change of dressings or diapers till the discharge significantly reduces by 3-5 days.
--In massive liposuction vacuum drains may be kept to take out accumulated fluid and keep the area dry and less messy. These drainage tubes will be removed after 48-72 hours, depending on the amount of fluid being drained.
--Your skin may feel rough and sometimes hyper sensitive for a few days, over time it will rapidly improve.
--Pressure or compression garments are applied to the treated are for 4-6 weeks to make recovery faster and more comfortable. These garments help reduce surgical swelling and make movements very much easier and pain free.
--Your return back to normal activity will largely depend upon the extent of the procedure and also upon the amount of fat aspirated.
--During the follow-up period, any fluid collection will be removed by needle aspiration.
What are the advantages of VASER Lipo ?
--Easy removal of large quantities of fat.
--Least damage to surrounding structures like blood vessels, nerves, muscles, tendons, bones, joints etc
--Less pain, Less blood loss
--Precise sculpting of delicate areas of the body.
--Fat collected by VASER liposuction is ideal for fat transfer into other body parts like breast, buttocks, cheeks, etc.
Where is VASER Lipo commonly used?
VASER Lipo is most commonly used for:
--Six packs abs.
--Side loin tyres (Love handles)
--Sides of thighs (saddle bags)
--Male breast (gynaecomazia)
Other sites where VASER Lipo is used:
--Face and Chin
How is VASER useful for fat transfer?
--According to a recent study conducted at the University of Pittsburgh, human fat hervested by VASER ultrasound assisted liposelection (Sound Surgical Technologies LLC), is as viable as fat collected by conventional suction assisted liposuction, with nearly 80% volume retention.
--Hence the highly selective nature of ultrasound energy promotes increased fat cell viability, making it ideal for fat transfer procedure.
--Fat collected by VASER liposuction can be injected into other body parts like breast, buttocks, cheeks etc
