What is Vaser Liposuction?
Vaser liposuction is liquidation of fat cells with special ultrasound waves and collecting this liquidised fat with thin cannula. Also known as ultrasonic liposuction, vaser liposuction operation can be applied to all adults with regional fat accumulation which cannot be eliminated with diet and exercise.
This operation is more advanced alternative of classical liposuction and since this operation does not cause wavy look and enables removal of more fat texture, it is preferred over classical liposuction. This has been one of the most preferred aesthetic operations around the world. This operation can be applied to one or multiple areas. This operation is completed under general anaesthesia and patients are discharged on the same day.
Recovery of this operation is fast. Patients are asked to rest at home for couple of days and use a special corset for 3 weeks. Patients can go back to daily routine but should avoid heavy activities for approximately 2-3 weeks. Patients can shower 2 days after the operation.
Things to consider before vaser liposuction
- Patients should avoid smoking and alcohol consumption 10 days before the surgery.
- Patients should avoid certain vitamins like Vitamin E and herbal tea.
- Also, patients should stop using blood thinners like aspirin 10 days before the operation.
- Since general anaesthesia will be applied, solid and liquid consumption should stop 9 hours before the operation.
Advantages of vaser liposuction
