As an alternative to traditional liposuction, Macquarie Cosmetic Medicine offers VASERlipo.
VASERlipo is unique in its ability to target fat while leaving other important tissues intact. The minimally invasive ultrasound technology is powerful enough to eliminate large areas of fat as well as being suitable to treat more delicate areas. The use of ultrasound also promotes skin tightening and quicker healing.
The VASERlipo procedure is considered to be less traumatic with a quicker recovery time when compared to liposuction. First, the area to be reshaped is filled with a tumescent saline solution. A small probe then transmits the ultrasound energy to break up and dislodge the fat. Next, a cannula removes the dislodged fat through a gentle suction process.
Noticeable results vary according to the amount of fat removed, the number of areas treated, and other factors. Many patients report that they see results immediately after the procedure with the final results around three to four months later.
The procedure is performed under a local anaesthetic with light sedation, resulting in a short recovery period and minimal downtime.
VASERlipo offers a more precise removal of fat when compared to traditional liposuction. Small and large amounts of fat can be removed with VASERlipo for body contouring and creating muscle definition. The fat removed during the procedure can also be used for other fat grafting procedures, such as a Brazillian Butt Lift.
VASER High Definition Liposuction can be used to create a more athletic and muscular appearance than the VASERlipo. The VASER HD takes fat from around and on-top of the abdominal muscles, where VASERlipo does not. It can also be used on the back, arms, and chest (for men).
