WHAT IS VASER LIPOSUCTION?
Vaser Liposuction (Vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance) is a liposuction technique to eliminate fat cells from the body using ultrasound waves. The waves dislodge and liquefy the fat cells, making it easier for professionals to draw out the fat with minimal incision. The Vaser liposuction treatment in Dubai is safer than traditional liposuction as it doesn’t damage any surrounding tissues or cause trauma. Moreover, it doesn’t require general anaesthesia or a cannula, making it even safer. Vaser liposuction covers areas such as:
- Thigh Lift
- Flanks (love handles)
VASER liposuction offers some great benefits you won’t find in traditional liposuction.
- Fat is extracted with a small incision (no bleeding or stitching)
- Faster downtime (recovery within ten days)
- The fat in your body is exposed to Ultrasound technology to loosen them up, which helps in more-efficient fat removal with less tissue trauma and complications.
- Fat extracted through VASER is purified and can be later injected into breasts, buttocks, and other areas for enhanced results.
- It can be used for treating gynecomastia in men.
- You get natural results in one session, unlike traditional liposuction, where multiple sessions are required.
- The surgeon can remove more fat from the targeted area in excellent detail.
- A perfect and reliable procedure to reveal the toned muscles hidden behind the stubborn fat barrier.
Both men and women: VASER liposuction is the safest and fastest fat removal process designed for men and women, which is not the case in traditional liposuction. Compared to women, men have more fibrous tissues in their bodies. As a result, the removal of fat in men becomes too complicated and risky by conventional means.
People who need to reach their target body: It is highly recommended for people who are already under their target weight but can’t get rid of unnecessary fat.
VASER liposuction surgeons recommend patients be within 5 per cent of their target weight. For example, if you want to weigh 60 kg after the procedure, ensure you currently weigh 63 kg. Overweight and obese individuals can consult their doctor for alternate options.
Not Ideal Candidates
If you go for a VASER liposuction procedure in Dubai, doctors follow strict guidelines to qualify you as an ideal candidate for the surgery.
Smoking reduces the oxygen content in your blood, leading to delayed recovery and death of the tissue. Your doctor may ask you to quit smoking before or after the process.
INDIVIDUALS WITH NO SEVERE ILLNESS
If you have undergone recent surgery, taken any medication, have bleeding issues, or have a painful health condition, you must disclose it to your doctor during the consultation.
PREGNANT OR BREASTFEEDING WOMEN
It is a high NO-NO for women expecting a baby or breastfeeding.
VASER Liposuction procedure
VASER liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that can be done under local anaesthesia. The patients need to consult a specialist in Dubai to discuss various options and set a date for the process.
The doctor will discuss all steps involved before starting the procedure. Although one can undergo the VASER liposuction procedure fully awake, patients may ask their doctor in Dubai for other options to minimize their anxiousness.
The doctor will also consult an anesthesiologist to discuss the anaesthesia options for the patient. Small areas are easily treated under mild sedation, while larger areas may require general anaesthetics.
First, the doctor will mark the target areas of the body, injecting local anaesthesia and a tumescent saline solution. This will help to minimize bruising and bleeding during the procedure. The saline also helps aid in breaking down the fat deposits. Instead of using a cannula like in a traditional VASER liposuction procedure in Dubai, the doctor inserts a probe that transmits low-level ultrasound energy. The vibration only affects the fat cells and doesn’t cause trauma to the surrounding tissues. All the fat cells liquefy and mix up with the injected saline solution. The doctor then draws out the liquefied fat using an aspiration process, leaving some traces of anaesthesia to ease the discomfort after the procedure.
VASER liposuction Recovery & Downtime
The recovery period after a VASER liposuction may vary among individuals based on the number of treated areas and the amount of fat removed from the body. In most cases, it takes as little as two days for the pain and discomfort to subside.
Vaser Liposuction Results
The results vary on the extensiveness of the procedure. Most Dubai patients report immediate results when performing the procedure for the chin, neck, and underarms. However, procedures done on the abdomen, flanks, things, and buttocks require extended waiting periods. This is because of the swelling, which subsides within 3-6 weeks.
You will notice some sticky fluid leaking from the incision sites. However, it is normal and will resolve independently within a few days.
You can expect some swelling and bruising around the areas for up to 5-6 weeks. Therefore, it’s best to avoid doing heavy tasks for at least 2-3 weeks. Patients should consult their doctor before joining the gym or doing high-intensity work after a VASER liposuction procedure in Dubai. (VASER liposuction in Dubai)
Your VASER liposuction surgeon in Dubai may suggest you wear compression garments for 6-8 weeks. Compression wear minimizes swelling and discomfort, allowing your body to reshape, and giving that contouring appearance.
Expectations after vaer liposuction Surgery
Pre-surgery guidelines may vary from patient to patient, depending on any existing medical condition. However, there are two pieces of advice in general:
- refraining from smoking five days before surgery
- discontinuing medications that may hamper the safety of surgery
Vaser liposuction Risks and side effects
VASER liposuction in Dubai is comparably less risky than conventional techniques.
Patients undergoing VASER liposuction may experience the following medical issues:
- Scars on the treated areas where incisions are made
- Loosening of skin around the treated sites (may require a follow-up session for tucking the excessive skin)
- Skin discolouration and hyper/hypopigmentation are seen in rare cases
- Some amount of pain and discomfort is usual, but it subsides after a couple of days
- Numbness around the treated areas but also helps with pain and discomfort
Risks associated with VASER liposuction are entirely based on the expertise of your surgeon in Dubai.
VASER liposuction in Dubai has a success rate of 90 per cent, which is the highest compared to an alternative form of liposuction. This is followed by smart liposuction, laser liposuction, and traditional liposuction, with a success rate of 89-88%.
It is not designed to eliminate cellulite, but it may improve the overall appearance of cellulite. Your doctor can suggest a better alternative for cellulite reduction.
No, it is not suitable to use on the face. However, this is perfect for reducing fat from your chin and neck area.
Vaser liposuction targets all the body's common fat storage areas, including tricky areas that traditional lipo fails to cover.
The skin of the treated areas tends to get saggy or loose in some cases. Your doctors in Dubai will assess your skin texture and condition during the consultation. If there is a probability, your doctor may recommend you for a skin tuck session after six weeks of the procedure.
A VASER liposuction treatment is usually done within a single sitting. However, your doctor may ask for a touch-up session after six months.
VASER liposuction in Dubai is a walk-out procedure that doesn’t require any significant preparation. However, your doctor may ask you to stop alcohol consumption, smoking and certain medications like aspirin and ibuprofen a few weeks before the procedure.
First of all, VASER liposuction is not a permanent weight loss solution. It helps individuals to lose unnecessary fat from risky and adamant areas of the body. Therefore, we highly recommend you continue following a healthy diet with exercise.
Even though you get your weight back, you will distribute it evenly in your body. Let’s say you remove fat from your tummy and lose 1-2 inches around your waist. Now, gaining the weight back won’t affect your waist size, as the accumulated weight will distribute evenly across your body.
