Liposuction / Vaser Liposuction

What is liposuction?

Power-assisted

This is the "Traditional liposuction" where fat cells are sucked out of the body by a cannula connected to a suction device. Liposuction's main purpose, a method of removing fats via suction,the main purpose is to reshape parts of the body and not for weight loss. Typically liposuction aims to tackle "stubborn fats", referring to fats that are not responding to diets and workout.

Ultrasound Assisted

VASER liposuction is an advanced technology surgery in melting fats with an ultrasound technology and removing fat via suction. It is a special technique that was developed to selectively, effectively and safely remove unwanted body fats without causing any disturbance to important structures such as blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue. The precision of the VASER probes also means that it can even be used to treat very close to the skin for skin retraction. This allows loose skin to tighten up after using vaser technology. This technology is especially useful for revision liposuction cases.

VASER Liposuction versus Traditional Liposuction

  • less pain
  • less bruising
  • less swelling
  • more precise control in delicate areas
  • further tightening of skin over time from internal ultrasound

Further Considerations

Liposuction can also be combined with Fat Transfer. The fat cells that are removed, can be injected into other parts of the body such as the face, breasts and buttocks. By spinning down the fats collected, and putting into the same body that it was extracted, results can be natural looking, longer lasting and no risk of rejection.

Procedures

The procedures are usually performed under sedation administered by our anaesthetists for maximal patient safety and comfort. It entails only very small 3-4 mm cuts on the skin where the probes can be inserted. These wounds are then stitched using absorbable sutures and no suture removal is necessary. There may be bruising that will last for 7-10 days. However, patients will be prescribed with anti-bruising medication to reduce this downtime.

Patients are also required to wear customised pressure garments for around 6 weeks post-procedure for optimal results.
