Vaser liposuction is one of our most asked about treatments offered here at The Private Clinic. The procedure is a popular choice for those looking to contour their body and remove any stubborn areas of fat.
Vaser Liposuction differs to traditional surgical liposuction as it uses ultrasound to dissolve the fat and the minimally invasive technique makes recovery time a lot quicker with initial results being seen after the procedure and improving in the following weeks/month.
So it Vaser right for me?
Vaser Liposuction is recommended for patients who have small areas of fat that they are struggling to loose despite the patients best efforts at dieting and exercise. Vaser can be carried out on almost all areas of the body including the neck, upper arms, tummy, thighs and even your knees.
Vaser Liposuction is often used to get rid of the excess fat stored around the neck area which can result in a double chin or drooping jowls.
Vaser Liposuction is not suitable for the face however, if you are struggling with bags under the eyes for example or are just looking for full facial rejuvenation then you may be better off considering a blepharoplasty or full face lift.
The most common area to get vaser liposuction tends to be around the abdomen. We see many patients who are living an active and healthy lifestyle but despite their best efforts fat pockets around the stomach and flanks are proving difficult to burn off. As long as you don’t have any loose skin then vaser liposuction will most likely be the best option for this issue.
If you are struggling with loose skin as a result of weight loss, or pregnancy for example, then an abdominoplasty will most likely be recommended instead in order to get the desired result.
Arms and Legs
Troublesome fat on the arms and legs can feel like a real burden when no amount of exercise seems to be shifting it. Vaser liposuction is great at targeting the pockets of stubborn fat and contouring your arms and legs.
In some cases however Vaser Liposuction may not be suitable, particularly if you have a fair amount of excess skin. If vaser liposuction is not an option then we may refer you to one of our plastic surgeons who will be able to discuss a thigh or arm lift with you.
Despite its quick procedure times and short recovery periods, Vaser Liposuction is still surgery and it should not be seen as a quick fix or the easy option. Have a consultation with your doctor, surgeon or patient advisor and make it really clear what you wish to achieve. Don’t feel put down if vaser is not recommended as this would only be down to getting the best results that you desire which may instead require surgery.
