Vaser Lipo

Article posted by Riccardo Frati / 26 May 2016

One of our most popular treatments in the run-up to summer is Vaser Liposuction. As women and men get ready to bare all on the beach, this treatment is frequently requested. It removes stubborn fat deposits and provides a sleeker, more sculpted definition.

Vaser Lipo is often carried out on areas that are susceptible to fat build-up. For women this tends to be on the hips, thighs, stomach and buttocks. Men tend to request the treatment for the face, neck, chin and upper arms.

The procedure is regarded as non-invasive and it is highly targeted. Therefore, there is less damage to surrounding tissue than other procedures. Any resulting bruising, bleeding or scarring are minimal. The treatment is carried out under local anaesthetic as a day case and recovery times are fast.

How Does It Work?

The technique works by breaking down fat using ultrasound energy. This is emitted using a fine fibre optic laser. A tiny incision is made and a suction tube is inserted. The emulsified fat is then sucked out of the body. Fat can then be used for other procedures such as fat transfer.

Is Vaser Lipo An Alternative To Diet And Exercise?

Vaser Liposuction is not an alternative to a healthy diet and exercise regime. This treatment is performed where a healthy lifestyle alone cannot remove stubborn fat. It works best where there are minimal amounts of excess skin. The procedure stimulates better skin contraction and results in a more defined appearance.
