What is VAPER Liposuction?

Liposuction is a well-known cosmetic procedure that removes stubborn fat deposits from under the skin. VASER liposuction is a specific type of liposuction that works by breaking apart fat cells and extracting them from the deeper layers of tissue, making it easier to remove fat during the treatment.

VASER is an acronym that stands for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance. This ultrasound technology utilises powerful waves to break the bonds that hold fat cells together. Ultrasonic energy is administered to heat up fat cells, melting them away without damaging the surrounding nerves, blood vessels, or tissues.

VASER liposuction is known as a more gentle and controlled procedure, as it requires a high level of skill and precision for proper execution. The VASER device itself is an ultrasound liposuction device that is specifically designed to remove unwanted body fat in a safe and effective manner. The device transmits a series of pulses into the skin, gently and effectively breaking up the unwanted fat cells. VASER is considered to be the best device for high-definition contouring procedures such as ab sculpting or a Brazilian Butt Lift.

What Are the Benefits of VASER Liposuction?

Excess body fat is a concern that millions of people struggle with. While many assume that it can be improved with simple diet and exercise, the truth is that stubborn pockets of fat are often unresponsive to these protocols. In such cases, patients realise that they need a different approach to achieve their desired look.

VASER technology is known for delivering precise results and can be performed on various areas of the body at the same time. Here are some of its incredible benefits:

  • It can successfully address sensitive areas of the body, such as the neck, chin, buttock line, and inner thighs, redefining the patient’s contours. 
  • Unlike other forms of liposuction, VASER can treat large, small, and fibrous areas.
  • VASER causes considerably less bruising, swelling, and trauma due to the fact that the ultrasonic energy is projected in a precise manner, carefully targeting fat cells and avoiding the surrounding nerves and blood vessels.
  • The VASER technique is much gentler than traditional liposuction, the discomfort level post-surgery is greatly diminished as well as the recovery time overall. In fact, most people have returned to their normal daily activities days to a week after the procedure.
  • With VASER lipo, significantly large amounts of fat can be eliminated in one setting and multiple body areas can also be treated during the same session.

How Does the Procedure Work?

Whether a big change or a minor touch-up is needed, VASER Liposuction is a highly innovative form of liposuction that can improve body contours, giving patients the look of their dreams. 

The first step in the process involves injecting a tumescent numbing fluid into the treatment areas. This tumescent fluid is injected into the treatment area constricting blood vessels to limit bleeding. It also contains a numbing agent, making the procedure as painless as possible. 

The tumescent liquid helps expose the fatty tissue to the ultrasonic energy emitted from the VASER device. Small cannulas are employed to emit ultrasonic waves, breaking down fat cells while tightening the skin. The final step of the process involves carefully suctioning out the excess fat and water from the treatment area.

What Are the Risks Associated With VASER Liposuction?

Out of all the different liposuction procedures available today, VASER liposuction is known for being the safest and most effective. This ultrasonic energy-based technique has proven to be highly effective at preventing damage to the surrounding tissues of the target area, keeping vital blood vessels intact and protected.

All surgeries and liposuction procedures come with some amount of risk. Although complications are very rare, it is important that patients take into consideration all of the potential risks before choosing to undergo the procedure. Patients will have the opportunity to discuss any concerns and ask any questions they may have during their private consultation. 

The potential risks of VASER liposuction include:

  • Swelling and bruising around the treatment area
  • Post-surgical bleeding around the injection sites
  • Burns on the skin
  • Pain and numbness around the targeted area
  • Inflammation around the treated area
  • Seroma (fluid accumulation in the body) 

The aforementioned risks apply to all forms of liposuction, not only VASER liposuction. Nonetheless, it is worth mentioning that these potential risks are far less common with a VASER liposuction than with the traditional version. As with any surgical procedure, referring to a well-trained cosmetic practitioner will ensure that the procedure is carried out in the safest manner possible. 

Patients must keep in mind that it can take as long as 6 to 12 months to notice any visible changes in the contours of the body.

My experience with Elanic was amazing from start to finish. Everyone was lovely, professional and personable at the same time. They put me at ease the minute I walked through the door and I have been more than happy with my results. I have waited for years to have this procedure and I am so pleased I waited for the Elanic to carry it out. Amazing!

What Is the Recovery Period Like?

When comparing VASER lipo to other liposuction methods, VASER is associated with a significantly lower amount of post-procedural discomfort and pain. This is due to the fact that VASER employs a much gentler approach when compared to the traditional technique.

Traditional liposuction procedures usually require lengthy recovery periods, going as long as six weeks or longer. The recovery time for a VASER liposuction procedure can span anywhere from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the patient’s situation and the specifics of the procedure. The following factors can also have a significant impact on recovery time:

  • How much fat is being removed from the body
  • Number of areas that fat is being extracted from
  • How the patient’s body reacts to the healing process
  • If fat is transferred into another area during the procedure

Although the recovery time will vary for each individual, most patients who receive VASER liposuction find that they can get back to their daily routines after only a few days. Many patients are often in a hurry to get outside and get active, but it’s vital to be patient and allow the body to properly heal from the effects of the procedure throughout the relatively short recovery period. While patients are warned against lifting heavy objects, patients are usually able to get back to work and perform minimally physical tasks in a setting such as an office, for example.
