Vaser Liposuction (Fat Removal)
Treatment in Turkey
What is Classical Liposuction?
In Vaser Lipo Shape, a specialized fluid is injected into the area of application to make the fat cells swell. After the fluid is administered, a high negative pressure is applied, and using cannulas, the fat is suctioned and removed from the body.
What is Vaserlipo?
One of the most effective and safe methods for getting rid of localized fats and achieving a fit body appearance is Vaser LipoShape.
High-quality piezoelectric materials are used for the handpiece, along with high-purity titanium probes. To put it simply, it operates on the principle of separating fat cells from each other using ultrasonic sound waves. It is highly effective for reshaping fat deposits.
How is Vaserlipo applied?
After the introduction of tumescent solution to the targeted area, the main power generator sends energy to the handpiece (probe) through piezoelectric ceramic components, creating vibration within the specialized titanium probes (long titanium rods) at a specific frequency.
This reciprocating ultrasonic motion in the metal generates ultrasonic sound waves with a particular wavelength within the fluid medium. This sound wave causes the clustered fat tissue cells in the body to expand and contract, ultimately leading them to separate from each other as they reach a certain force, resembling the separation of grape berries from the stem.
Why is Vaser Lipo application called Lipo Select?
Vaser liposuction utilizes a specific sound wave that exclusively targets fat tissue, thereby affecting only the fat cells. Because it does not affect the blood vessels, nerves, connective tissues, and muscle tissues in the targeted area, the procedure’s safety is of the utmost importance. This selective fat treatment does not cause damage to the surrounding tissues.
Ultrasonic sound waves disrupt the connections between adjacent fat cells. The application breaks the bonds between the fat cells, allowing them to remain suspended in a colloidal state within a liquid. When examining the extracted fluid, it has a milky consistency.
The fat cells that have been disconnected by ultrasonic sound waves and mixed with water can be gently aspirated from the body using low pressure and thin cannulas, without causing harm to the body. Alternatively, these emulsified fat cells can be collected for specialized uses in procedures like liquid lipofilling.
After a specific filtration process, the fat is loaded into syringes and can be injected into desired areas. In men, the harvested fat can be injected into the chest muscles, shoulders, face, and buttocks; in women, it can be used for facial enhancements, lip augmentation, buttock augmentation, and breast augmentation. Vaser liposuction offers significant advantages in achieving total body contouring.
Which regions are preferred in shaping?
1) Patients with a significant accumulation of fat (more than 2 liters from a single area)
2) Patients who have experienced rapid and excessive weight gain followed by some weight loss, resulting in loose or slightly sagging skin and stretch marks
3) Patients with thick subdermal tissue.
Attempting to remove fat from such challenging patients using traditional liposuction can lead to inadequate results as well as undesirable aesthetic flaws like waviness, sagging, and indentations. That’s why many doctors are reluctant to perform procedures on such patients.
With Vaser liposuction, safe and effective treatment can be applied to difficult areas and excess fat throughout the body. No incisions are made on the body for the procedure. The procedure is performed through small openings of about 3-4 mm in width. These incisions are strategically placed, preferably in natural creases, to ensure minimal visibility and camouflage.
What are the advantages of Vaserlipon?
Compared to traditional liposuction procedures, Vaser liposuction is much more effective and provides smoother and more homogeneous results. It significantly reduces the risk of the wavy or uneven appearance often complained about after traditional liposuction.
Since fat and fluids become a mixture, much finer cannulas are used for their removal and disposal from the body. This results in less damage to the surrounding tissue. As a result, there is less bruising and a faster recovery process.
In which patients is Vaserlipo preferred?
Patients who have previously undergone liposuction or laser lipolysis and wish to eliminate fat once again find Vaser liposuction to be highly effective.
Due to its use of a specific sound wave that targets only the fat tissue, Vaser liposuction allows us to liquefy and remove fat that may have been trapped among hardened tissues from previous procedures, without affecting other tissues or causing unnecessary side effects. In cases where fat grafting is needed or for patients with thin, tight skin, Vaser liposuction may be preferred over laser lipolysis.
How long does the Vaserlipo application take?
Liposuction procedures using laser technology generally require a slightly longer operation time compared to traditional liposuction methods. The duration can vary depending on the volume of fat to be removed, ranging from 1 to 5 hours. The amount of fat that can be extracted can vary significantly, with the potential to remove anywhere from 0.5 liters to 4-6 liters of fat, depending on the individual patient’s needs.
What are the disadvantages of Vaserlipo compared to Laser lipolysis?
Lazer lipolysis procedures offer a significant advantage in terms of the skin tightening effect on the surface of the skin. While there is information suggesting that Vaser liposuction can also provide skin tightening, practical results often indicate that its skin tightening effect is less pronounced compared to laser lipolysis.
Vaser liposuction is a system that is particularly effective in removing fat rather than primarily focusing on skin tightening. Laser lipolysis, on the other hand, is a preferred choice, especially in patients with loose skin, due to its skin tightening properties.
It’s important to note that individual responses to different procedures can vary, and the choice between Vaser liposuction and laser lipolysis should be made based on the specific goals, anatomical considerations, and the patient’s preferences. Consulting with a qualified medical professional can help determine the most suitable approach for each individual case.
Return to social life after Vaserlipo application?
After small area applications, individuals can return to their social activities the day after the procedure. If the treatment involves a larger number of areas or if a significant amount of fat needs to be removed, the patient can typically return to work around the 4th or 5th day.
Following the procedure, it is recommended to wear a compression garment for 2 weeks. While individual experiences may vary, bruising or long-term swelling is generally not observed. Patients can engage in light activities such as gentle exercise or massage starting around the 15th to 20th day after the surgery. More intense physical activities can be resumed after about 45 days.
It’s important for patients to follow their healthcare provider’s post-procedure instructions closely to ensure a smooth recovery and achieve the best possible results.
What is High Definition(Hi-Def) Lipo Sculpting?
One of the newly popularized procedures is High Definition (Hi-Def) body sculpting. This procedure, which is favored by celebrities abroad and is becoming popular in Turkey as well, involves shaping the subcutaneous fat tissue in a manner that complements the body’s anatomy, with a strong focus on muscle tissues. This results in a more defined appearance of the muscle structure, and after the Hi-Def procedure, the muscles become more pronounced.
Not every patient is suitable for High Definition (Hi-Def) body sculpting. Individuals with loose skin, internal fat accumulation, advanced obesity, and those who do not engage in physical exercise are not ideal candidates for this procedure.
High Definition (Hi-Def) is particularly suitable for individuals, both men and women, who are active in sports but have been unable to achieve well-defined muscles.
In Hi-Def lipolysis, the goal is to give the person a muscular appearance by shaping their abdomen, chest, waist, and shoulder areas according to the anatomy of their muscles. During the procedure, fat is not only removed but also fat injections are performed in some areas to enhance muscle definition.
Following High Definition (Hi-Def) applied to the abdominal area, men can achieve the appearance referred to as “six-pack.”
It’s important to note that this procedure requires a high degree of precision and consideration of the individual’s body structure to achieve the desired results. As with any medical procedure, thorough consultation with a qualified professional is essential to determine the suitability and expected outcomes of High Definition (Hi-Def) body sculpting.
