When most people think of liposuction, it immediately conjures up as a way to slim down. But it isn’t quite like that. liposuction is a type of cosmetic surgeries which aims to remove fat from beneath the areas of the skin that bothers the patient. So, contrary to being a weight loss surgery, it is a targeted refinement procedure.
Vaser Liposuction, unlike traditional techniques, breaks down fat before it is removed. This initial fat breakdown allows for the surgeon to remove the fat deposits more effectively.
First, as explained, fatty tissue must be broken down before being removed. To achieve this, the surgeon will enter the skin through an incision using ultrasound probes.
Gradually, the probes will gradually begin to disintegrate. The surgeon will then use a surgical instrument (a cannula) to remove the fatty tissue.
The procedure can be targeted at the hips, waist, chin, chest, arms, stomach, hips and chest, and the whole process lasts for approximately two to three hours.
Recovery and results
Doctors recommend that you take a week or two off from work to aid the recovery process. However, if you work in an office environment without much bodily activity, the doctor may advise you to return earlier.
During the first few weeks, you will have to wear a compression garment to keep the shape of the results.
You do want the best outcome possible, which goes without saying. So, for this reason, refrain from strenuous activity and keep a healthy weight to land optimal results.
The doctor (and other healthcare professionals) will design a recovery plan tailored to your needs. Please heed the advice of the doctor as much as possible.
