Women tend to store fat on their thighs, making some feel uncomfortable about displaying their legs in public. Some of us have general lumps and bumps on our outer thighs, which again can knock confidence when it comes to wearing smooth clothes.
Toned thighs can be hard to achieve for many people, with stubborn fat deposits making weight loss and exercise difficult to achieve and maintain. The area has previously been hard to treat through traditional liposuction, which is unable to offer exact precision without leaving marks and dimples.

What is VASER 360 Legs?

For the ultimate in control over your legs, VASER 360 fat removal and body contouring treats the upper leg circumferentially. Working 360 degrees around the leg, it targets the thighs, knees and buttock crease using VASER Lipo – a minimally invasive body contouring procedure.

VASER is less invasive than traditional liposuction and, because it differentiates between fat and important tissues such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissues, the risk of damage to other tissues is significantly reduced. There is no hospital stay and the treatment is walk-in walk-out, with minimum downtime.

Whereas before VASER Lipo procedures were often limited to specific single areas, VASER 360 allows patients to achieve perfect pins the whole way round. Dr Dennis Wolf works at The Private Clinic to offer VASER 360 to women and men. Dr Dennis Wolf uses specialised, smaller cannulas to remove broken down fat tissue to achieve sleek, smooth legs.

Thigh Liposuction & Contouring

When contouring any part of the body it is important to keep the body’s natural proportions in mind. This helps to create a natural silhouette that is fitting to the patient’s whole body. Understanding these proportions and correcting body asymmetries and imperfection is an art that every surgeon must practice before performing on patients. When looking at thigh correction, the surgeon must take the front and back as well as the inner and outer thigh view to ensure the surgical technique is balanced for a 360 finish.

The Leonardo Da Vinci Approach

The first step involves an overall evaluation of the whole lower body proportions, by looking at the buttocks, thighs, lower legs, side view, 3/4  view on both sides, together with the classical front and back views. By adopting a total view of the asymmetries and body disproportions of the patient, this allows a better understanding of the areas where the VASER lipo will be performed. The procedure is then planned around the amount of body fat to be removed, skin laxity and flaccidity of the body. The aim is to create a natural more proportionate shape.

In cosmetic surgery the thigh area has always been a sensitive area as many doctors don’t have the knowledge, expertise or skill to perform a complete 360 thigh liposuction.

We believe that a tri-dimensional approach is key to achieve harmony between the different areas.

Advantages of VASER 360 Lipo:

  • Once the fat is gone, it will not return.
  • It is a walk-in walk-out procedure, with minimal downtime and time needed off work.
  • It is a specialised technique designed to minimise the discomfort and bruising involved in surgical options
  • Local anaesthetic is used
  • Transform your legs in one procedure
  • Our VASER 360 doctors have performed hundreds of VASER procedures for The Private Clinic
  • Good skin retraction is possible

VASER 360 Treatment

What happens during the Vaser 360 legs procedure?

The upper legs require detailed knowledge and experience to treat successfully. VASER Lipo performed on the inner, outer, front and back thighs requires a huge amount of skill and many surgeons will not perform the procedure due to lack of expertise. We are proud to offer the full 360 service with Dr. Dennis Wolf.

VASER (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) 360 uses advanced ultrasound technology to break down fat cells in the subcutaneous layer of the skin, which is then taken out of the body after it liquefies through a small cannula, creating minimal disruption but advanced results. Performed under local anaesthetic, a small probe is inserted into the specified areas from which pulses of energy are emitted that target the fat cells and break them away from the rest of the tissue – essentially melting them. The dislodged fat cells are then gently sucked out with small cannulas which cause minimum disruption to the body. The procedure utilises the minimally invasive techniques of small cannulas and VASER probes to avoid bruising, swelling and general discomfort as much as is possible as well as avoiding any rippled or dimpled effect.

The procedure is proving very popular in the UK, with many patients citing the minimal disruption to their bodies combined with superior results as the main reason behind their choice.

After VASER 360 Treatment

How long after VASE 360 legs do you see results?

Stubborn, localised pockets of fat can successfully be removed, improving the overall shape and contours of your thighs. VASER Lipo helps create a natural silhouette that’s suits the whole body with results that are also dimple-free and symmetrical.

Results will be immediately noticeable but naturally there may be some swelling and bruising as your body adjusts so the full results may take a few weeks to become apparent. Most patients report just around a couple of weeks of swelling.

How long is the VASE 360 recovery time?

You will need to rest for a few days to ensure the healing process gets off to a good start. Patients tend to report on discomfort for the first 2 days post-procedure and swelling and bruising for slightly longer, but this is easily managed using over-the-counter pain medication. After that, many return to work within a week. We advise avoiding physical activity for a couple of weeks and often recommend Manual Lymphatic Drainage massage to help swelling and bruising subside.  Patient feedback tells us the pain and discomfort of the procedure is significantly lower than surgical options.

FAQs

  • What is the difference between Smart Lipo / Laser Lipo and Vaser Lipo?

    Smart Lipo or Laser Lipo is a different type of liposuction to vaser liposuction. Although they are both used to remove stubborn areas of fat and to contour the body shape they both use different techniques. Smart liposuction which is also referred to as laser liposuction or laser lipolysis uses laser technology but vaser liposuction uses ultrasound technology to target the fat.
    Smart lipo is newer than vaser liposuction but we believe that Vaser Liposuction is still the most advanced and effective form of liposuction which is why this is the only type that The Private Clinic offer in our clinics.

    Vaser Liposuction uses ultrasonic technology which allows for specific areas of fat to be treated (Vaser liposelection). Due to this, the surrounding body tissues are then left untouched which results in far less bruising and swelling and a shorter recovery time.
