Are you considering a VASER® liposuction treatment but not sure if you’re a good candidate? The only way to determine for sure if you are or not is through a one-on-one consultation with one of the Signature Clinic team. However, the following is a general idea of the type of person for whom VASER liposuction is ideal:
VASER® Liposuction Treatment Details
This procedure is always performed under local anaesthetic at Signature Clinic, the procedure will take between 2 and 4 hours. During a VASER liposuction treatment, the area being treated will be injected with an anaesthetic liquid which will numb the area and create a pocket from which the surgeon can remove a larger portion of fat with ease. Small incisions will be made in the treated area and an ultrasonic probe will be inserted which will emit ultrasonic waves that will destroy the fat cells. A cannula (a thin hollow tube used to suction out fat) will then be inserted to remove the excess fat from the area. Incisions will be closed with sutures.
Recovery/Aftercare from VASER® Liposuction
The post-operative course following VASER Liposuction is dependent on the volume of fat removed. In most cases compression garment will need to be worn to aid the healing process. There will be swelling and bruising for the first week after surgery. Most patients can return to work within four to five days. It is important to avoid strenuous activity for two to three weeks.
You will notice an improvement in your body contour immediately following your VASER liposuction treatment, but the final results won’t be seen until three to six months afterwards.
