Why choose Vaser liposuction against a standard procedure?
Vaser lipo and Vaser Hi-Def is a much gentler treatment for removing excess fat with immediate results. Unlike traditional liposuction, Vaser does not require large incisions and recovery time is much shorter due to less damage to surrounding tissues and blood vessels.
A combination of Vaser and Vaser Hi-Def treatments allow precision shaping for a much more natural-looking shape.
Why do your clients choose to have Vaser lipo?
Some areas of fat can be very stubborn, particularly as we grow older. Even a healthy diet and regular exercise can’t always tone up some areas. Our clients find that their confidence improves with liposuction as they feel more toned and can wear different types of clothing. Carrying excess fat is unhealthy so for some of our clients liposuction is a safe way to make a quick, positive impact on their overall health and wellbeing.
Which type of Vaser lipo is right for me?
Dr Bassi will choose a combination of Vaser liposuction techniques depending on the area to be treated and the amount of fat that you would like removed. Your treatment will be tailored to create your personal ideal body shape.
What areas of my body can be treated with Vaser lipo?
The Vaser technique is the gentlest yet most effective and precise form of liposuction available, so is suitable for most parts of the body, even small, delicate areas like the chin, knees, ankles and elbows.
Our customers often choose to have liposuction in problems areas such as the stomach, hips, thighs and buttocks.
How many treatments will I need?
One treatment is usually enough. However, it will depend on the amount of fat that you would like to have removed. Dr Bassi will be able to advise you during your consultation about the correct number of treatments you should have to achieve your desired shape safely.
What should I do to prepare for my Vaser lipo treatment?
Before undergoing Vaser lipo and Vaser HiDef you should exercise as much as possible to tone your muscles. This will give you a better shape when fat is removed. Exercising will also keep you healthy to ensure you are fit and well for your treatment and that your recovery period is minimal.
How long will my treatment procedure be?
You will be in the treatment for no longer than two hours so you only need a morning or afternoon spare.
Is Vaser liposuction painful?
The pain during a Vaser liposuction procedure is minimal because treatment is only mildly invasive. The treatment areas will be numbed with local anaesthetic, and only very small incisions are made in the skin to fit drainage catheters. There is no normally need for any stitches. You have the option to take a general anaesthetic at an extra cost if you would prefer not to be awake during the procedure.
When will I see results from my Vaser lipo treatment?
Results are immediate and you will be able to see your new changed shape as soon as your treatment has finished. Treated areas may be a little swollen, so results will improve after a week and continue to improve for up to six months as your skin tightens with new collagen growth.
Your post-op care programme will include deep tissue massage that will help to improve your results.
How long will it take me to recover from Vaser liposuction?
After your procedure you will be able to go home and should have no problems walking or carrying out light activities. Most people choose to return to work the next day if their work is sedentary.
You may feel a little bruising or swelling in the treated areas, which should subside after a few days. You’ll be sent home with a post-op care programme to follow, to help your recovery.
For up to six months after the procedure you may have a slight loss of sensation in the treated areas.
What support will you give me after my treatment?
You will be invited to attend post-treatment check-up appointments at one month, three months and six months. We will measure your BMI (body mass index), take measurements of the treated areas and compare before and after photographs to show you the exact results you have achieved over time.
You will be given advice on diet and exercise to maintain your new shape.
If at six months following the treatment, your BMI has not increased, yet in the very unlikely event there is no noticeable difference in your before and after photographs, we will provide you with a further treatment completely free of charge.
Can I see an example of the type of results I can expect?
Yes, we have plenty of male and female before and after pictures in our gallery.
