Vaser liposuction is a form ultrasonic assisted liposuction, introduced in 2002. A thin tube called a cannula is used to burst the walls of fat cells. This liquidises the fat, making it easier to suck out. The procedure takes less time than traditional liposuction and involves less blood, but comes with a slightly increased risk of pockets of fluid forming that may need draining with a needle. The Process Small incisions are made upon the area and a tumescent solution is applied that ‘blows up’ the target area. The fat still needs to be suctioned out, however, vaser lipo suction claims to cause less damage to surrounding areas. Some of the most common areas on which this...Read More..
Background According to the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons more and more people are turning to liposuction as a way of removing fat. Despite an overall reduction in the number of cosmetic surgery operations, dropping by 9% in 2014, liposuction managed to buck the trend with a rise of 7%. Liposuction methods have come a long way since first used in 1920, and new methods seem to be discovered every year. The latest technique is Vaser Liposelection, also known as Liposculpting; a big improvement on the more traditional methods in the opinion of many. This method targets localised stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet or exercise, and is a minimally invasive procedure. What is...Read More..
The stomach is a very common place for vaser liposuction treatments. It works well for removing stubborn areas of fat which are hard to shift with diet and exercise. Vaser liposuction can target love handles, muffin tops and pot bellies. The fabled six pack is only achievable with less than 12% body fat, vaser can make possible what you previously thought unattainable. The Process Vaser liposuction works by using waves of energy at an ultrasonic frequency.

The big advantage of vaser liposuction are that it...Read More..
Vaser liposuction can be used to target areas all over the body. A common place for the treatment to occur is the arms. ‘Bingo wings’, as large and sagging arms are colloquially known, are a perfect area for vaser liposuction. Sometimes no matter how many exercise or nutritional plans you try there are areas of fat that cannot be removed. Changes in body shape are part of getting older, but can affect confidence, which is an important component of mental health. Brachioplasty and Liposuction The main options are a brachioplasty or a liposuction. Brachioplasty involves surgical skin removal, whereas vaser liposuction on its own does not involve skin removal. Brachioplasty leaves scarring for up to a year;...Read More..
Vaser liposuction works by liquidising fat using ultrasonic frequencies. The treatment only removes fat, it does not tighten skin, unlike cosmetic surgeries such as a tummy tuck. To tighten skin you need patience, time and application. If you have vaser liposuction on an area of body prone to loose skin, such as the upper arm, stomach or neck you will be more likely to encounter loose or baggy skin following the procedure. To combat this you can take several steps. Cardiovascular Exercise Cardiovascular exercise is a big item on the list. By engaging in regular exercise, circulation is elevated thus bringing nutrients to the skin more easily. Precautions should be taken in the weeks following surgery, but,...Read More..
Vaser liposuction is touted as being more precise than other ultrasonic methods of liposuction. The benefits of precision are less swelling, less damage to surrounding nerves and tissue, as well as enhancement of open-drainage methods. Online review site realself.com gives vaser liposuction a 88% worth it rating, based on 313 reviews in the last 24 months. The average price is $6,175- about £4000 (price correct 14/12). But, no surgery is totally free from side effects. Let’s take a look at some of those that sometimes occure with VASER lipo. Burns Vaser liposuction can cause second or third degree burns.

Before your liposuction surgery, your doctor will provide you with a list of things you are expected to do or avoid. However, there are other things you need to consider if you want to properly prepare yourself for Lipo treatment. Food You need to beef up your health considerably by eating a good amount of protein, fruit and vegetables and healthy fats and carbohydrates. Liposuction is regarded as a relatively safe procedure, but it is vital to be in top physical condition for your body to handle the demands of surgery and recovery. Recovery time preparation Before the operation, you need to put machinery in place that will allow you enough time to recover. You will need...Read More..
Vaser liposuction results can be thought of as permanent. This is because fat cells have been removed from the area. Once removed, these cells cannot return, they stay gone. If a person were to gain fat after the procedure, it would be stored in other parts of the body. Also, not all fat cells can be removed from an area of the body, so the area where lipo was performed can still store fat too. Fat cells do not have a maximum capacity, they can grow and stretch to store more, so it is possible to undo the effects of lipo when gaining a lot of weight. With that said, usually your body will hold its new...Read More..
Liposuction surgery will take away extra fat deposits from your body. However, there is a real chance of regaining all the lost fat and more if you don’t take care of your body by eating correctly after the surgery. So what should you eat after the liposuction surgery? During the recovery phase it is likely that the doctor will suggest a high-protein diet that will help you stay strong. Without protein, your body will be unable to generate new cells. However, care must be taken to ensure you don’t exceed your recommended calorie range. Remember, you will not be able to work out for a while after Lipo. The liposuction procedure is stressful on the body. You...Read More..

Vaser liposuction addresses these issues to ensure a better fit, increased confidence, tighten up skin and grants an overall slimmer physique. Back fat can’t be dealt with by simply using a diet and exercise, which is why Vaser liposuction is the procedure of choice for addressing these problem locations.

For people looking to undergo liposuction to remove body fat, one of the main questions asked is just how much fat they can be allowed to remove. This is question becomes even more apt when the individual is considerably overweight and trying to achieve fast results. The amount of fat that can be removed, however, is determined in two ways. With some surgeons 5,000 millilitres or 11 pounds of fat is the maximum for a single procedure. This is the amount that will be removed, irrespective of body weight or fat status. In other cases, the body mass index (BMI) of the patient is used to determine how much fat extraction is safe. The BMI of a...Read More..
Gynecomastia, or ‘man boobs’, is a condition that affects around 15% of adult males in the UK. It is a condition characterised by excess fat in a man’s breast area. It is often triggered by a reduction in testosterone levels and an increase in oestrogen levels. Oestrogen controls the female traits of the body and although it is found in most males, it’s usually in drastically reduced levels. When the oestrogen becomes more pronounced, the ‘moobs’, as they are known in some quarters, will appear. This breast fat is often very difficult to shed. In the majority of cases, it remains unmoved even after a weight loss or diet regime has worked for most other parts of...Read More..
Pregnancy is a fascinating period in the life of most women, not to mention the expectant fathers, too. The joy that comes with bringing in a new child is, simply put, beyond imagination. However, away from the smiles and happiness that come from the mini version of you, pregnancy can leave a woman with a body she doesn’t want. Weight gain is natural and necessary during pregnancy.

Vaser liposuction is one of the most effective ways of losing the pregnancy weight. However, since the post-pregnancy stage is physically and mentally tasking, all mothers need to take some...Read More..
Vaser liposuction is a medical procedure that leaves prospective candidates worried. Interestingly, the major cause of concern is not the cost of the procedure or the degree of pain. The procedure is cheaper today than it ever was and the pain factor has never been more manageable. For many, the main reason why they are stalling on their vaser lipo surgery is that they’re afraid of scarring. Always explaining to friends and family that you got your scar from a liposuction procedure is not desirable. Declining summer activities because your swimsuit will reveal your scars is even worse. It’s pretty understandable that many people are worried about the resulting scars. After all, one of the reasons for...Read More..

A breast cancer diagnosis means a malignant tumour has been found within the cells of the breast. The affected cells can invade the surrounding tissues and spread to other parts of the body. Breast cancer is primarily a female condition, even though it has been documented in men in the past. Part of the lymph nodes around the tumor site is often removed by surgeons to study the extent to which the cancer has spread. This may result in lymphedema. Lymphedema is the accumulation of fluid in the tissues following the removal of the lymph nodes during cancer surgery. Lymph nodes and vessels circulate fluid around the extremities and when they are removed surgically, a disruption may...Read More..

Why VASER High Def? Some people want to lose fat in specific places, and the legs are of course one of these places. After the abdominal area, the legs are usually the next most popular target for those undergoing vaser liposuction. In fact, women usually store fat in their thigh areas before anywhere else, making it a notorious problem area for females around the world. Men, conversely, tend to store fat in the abdominal area first. There are also some people who have lumps, bumps and other imperfections in the leg region, making them very self-conscious about the appearance of their legs. Older methods of liposuction were not effective at removing fat around the whole of the...Read More..

With the constant bombardment of slim and toned celebrity images in the media, it’s easy to see why some people might feel secure about their stomach. From seeing pop stars frolicking on the beach to the latest trend of posting gym selfies on social media, the public constantly sees images of these honed and toned stars, and believes that their own stomachs can’t measure up.

They affect what type of clothes we can wear – men feel reluctant to opt for slim-fit shirts if they have a slight...Read More..

Liposuction and gastric bands are two surgical procedures which are aimed at sculpting the body and aiding weight loss – but that’s where the comparison ends. The Vaser liposuction procedure and the installation of a gastric band couldn’t be more different, but many people hover between the two as they struggle to decide which procedure would suit them best. Let’s take a look at both of the techniques, and examine the benefits of each.

Many people are unsure on what VASER liposuction is, or how safe it is. It has been available for a little over 10 years at this point, and has surged in popularity over the last few. VASER is a newer method of lipo, and stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. This is a fancy way of saying it uses ultrasound waves that are amplified and targeted to hit the fat cells in a specific area. Special ultrasonic probing tools are used here.

Before the ultrasound process, the surgeon will usually inject an anaesthetic solution to numb the...Read More..
