The Vaser Lipo System™ is a new sophisticated treatment which can be targeted at specific areas of the body and works by emulsifying unwanted fat whilst leaving surrounding tissue untouched. Problem areas on virtually any part of the body can be treated enabling you to achieve an overall contoured body shape to be proud of.
What is it and how does it work?
The Vaser Lipo System™ is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment. The area to be reshaped is filled initially with a special saline solution that helps to numb the site and shrink blood vessels. This solution makes it easier to break up the fatty tissue with the VASER Lipo System™'s ultrasound energy. The ultrasound probe is passed across the target area to emulsify the fat cells. The liquefied fat is then removed from the body through a gentle suction process. The energy beam targets the unwanted fat whilst leaving surrounding tissue unaffected, so is perfectly safe to use.
The treatment has been used on thousands of patients across the world to date, to high public acclaim. It produces stunning results with minimum downtime. It is equally effective for treating smaller identified problems as well as larger areas, producing a more defined body shape. Some results can be seen immediately whilst the full effect can take from 3 - 6 months. This will be explained during your initial consultation.
What areas can be treated?
The beauty of this treatment is that it is ideal for virtually any area of the body so there is no reason why you can't have the type of body shape that you want:
How much fat can be taken?
There are limits to how much fatty tissue can be safely taken from the body and you will be advised of this at the time of your initial consultation. It is important to note that this is not a weight loss solution, and there will be minimal overall reduction in your body weight. You will however achieve a slimmer, more contoured body shape. For male patients interested in improving body shape, we do provide body contouring for men.
What happens if I gain weight in the future?
Remember our bodies change shape over time through the natural ageing process, however if you follow a healthy lifestyle you will minimise the accumulation of unwanted fat in the body. It is a popular misconception that the remaining fat in the body will redistribute to areas that have been treated. This is not the case, however if you gain weight, the fat remaining may expand.
Vaser Lipo System™ or SmartLipo?
These two treatments for removal of excess fat are very similar in that they are both carried out under local anaesthetic with little or no downtime, and the fat particles are broken down using laser or ultrasound. However, the Vaser Lipo System™ is the preferred method for treating larger areas of the body and for patients whose body mass index is around 25 - 30. The incisions made using this technique are slightly larger than with SmartLipo, and compressions post treatment are recommended to remain in place for approximately 4 - 6 weeks rather than one week.
How much will it cost?
Each treatment varies in cost depending on the extent of the area being treated, and the number of treatments required to achieve desired results. You will be advised of the costs at your initial consultation.
