What to Expect from Laser & Vaser Liposuction

Here you can read our guide on what to expect from Laser & Vaser Liposuction. Liposuction, also known as “body shaping surgery”, “fat absorption” or “fat removal”, is a popular body aesthetic surgery performed for removing resistant fat in the body and shaping the body.

The fat cells in the targeted area can be removed permanently with liposuction, and the surgery provides removal of local fat that is out of proportion to the body in general and to clarify the body lines.

Liposuction is mostly performed with general anesthesia or sedation. You should bear in mind that liposuction is not a slimming and obesity, weight loss and cellulite treatment method. It is only a body aesthetic operation that should be performed for body shaping purposes.

You should also know that liposuction is available for those who do not have a systemic health problems, whose general health status does not pose a risk for surgery, who have not achieved success by exercising and dieting to remove regional fat.

And you should consult with your surgeon for sure before the surgery.

Where liposuction can be applied?

Liposuction can be applied to the parts of the body such as thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, waist, upper arms, back, inner parts of the knees, chest area, chin, neck, ankles and calves, where sagging occurs due to excessive weight loss, and deformation due to lifestyle and gravity.

Liposuction can also be applied alone or simultaneously with other aesthetic surgery operations.

How is Liposuction Performed?

You should expect small incisions of 2-4 mm. made in the body area with excess fat during the operation. With the help of thin and long cannulas inserted through the incisions, the fats are loosened with controlled back and forth movements. The loosened fats are sucked out of the body by using a surgical vacuum or syringe attached to the cannula.

The amount of fat to be removed from the body during liposuction may vary depending on the weight of the person, the characteristics of the skin tissue and the areas in which the procedure will be performed.

Regional bruising and pain may occur after liposuction operations. In order for the body to regain its form, a corset should be used in the first three weeks after the operation.

Popular Liposuction Procedures

In order to get rid of regional excesses rather than the old fat removal techniques, there are new generation techniques for liposuction such as Vaser or Laser liposuction applications which give very effective results.

Fat removal with Vaser Liposuction

It is the process of liquefying and removing regional lubrication by means of ultrasonic sound waves. It directly targets fat cells without damaging structures such as vessels, nerves, skin and muscles.

Directly targeting fat cells provides a much faster recovery process compared to other techniques. Another advantage is that although it does not harm the body structures, and it does not harm the fats taken, so your own fat can be injected into the parts of the body that need it. Apart from removing fat with Vaser, tightening of the skin is also provided in the application area.

Fat removal with Laser Liposuction

It is the process of breaking down and removing fats using laser energy. It is one of the effective new technique fat removal methods. With this method, the process of spontaneous removal of fats melted by laser energy by the body is called Laser Lipolysis.
