Then this article is the best thing you can read to have all those questions answered and make the decision to either have that VaserLipo or not for definite once and for all.
Taking all the main concerns and general queries that people have about VaserLipo, this article lists the top 8 questions with answers to match covering all you need to know about the subject in one quick and easy shot.
How Much Does it Cost?
VaserLipo like many things in life can vary in terms of cost and like many things in life you have to be careful that you are not being overcharged for your VaserLipo. It is recommended that you do your research well.
However, as a little guideline to help you along the way, if you were planning to have treatment done on your abdominals, flanks and inner thighs, you could expect to be paying within the region of about £10,000 – £14,000.
This is a big gap and shows you just how much it pays to do some research and ask around. Treatment costs do vary.
What is Vaser?
Vaser is a type of liposuction using ultrasonic technology which means it uses ultrasonic energy (high-energy sound waves) to emulsify fat. That means it turns your fat from a solid form into liquid and then the fat in its liquid form can be sucked out of your body with ease.
The good thing about Vaser is that it disrupts fat cells but not blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue and is as a result less traumatic than other forms of liposuction.
How Long Does the Swelling Last?
If you’re genuinely worried or the swelling seems abnormal, contact your surgeon immediately. They will be able to determine if there is a cause for concern. However try not to be alarmed as some swelling is expected after treatment up to 4 months after your procedure.
It may be a good idea to limit some of your activities in order to heal a little quicker. Compression garments prescribed by your surgeon can also be used to help speed up the process.
Will I Have Tighter Skin Afterwards?
Yes. In a medical study in 2010, Vaser liposuction was performed on one leg in 20 female patients and traditional liposuction was performed on the other leg. There was a 53% improvement in skin tightening on the leg that had Vaser liposuction compared to the other leg.
When Will I See Results?
In almost every case, you should see a visible and noticeable improvement immediately. Vaser technique is associated with less swelling and bruising than other options, but some does still occur, and it will take between 1 and 3 months for this to completely subside
What Areas Does it Work Best on?
Vaser can be used all over the body but results are best in three areas. All of these areas share the characteristic of having dense, tough, fibrous fatty tissue that is hard for other types of liposuction to treat. The first area is to treat male breasts. The second is flanks or love handles, especially in thinner patients, men, and Asian women who tend to have more fibrous fat that is difficult to suction with other methods. The third is any area that has previously been treated with any kind of liposuction is best treated the second time with Vaser. It is very good at dislodging fat from the scar of the initial procedure.
Will I Gain Weight Afterwards?
Most people generally don’t gain weight if they maintain a healthy lifestyle including watching a diet and sticking with a basic exercise program. You only have a certain number of fat cells. You don’t grow more fat cells, the cells just get bigger when you put on weight. If you have had VASER in an area, then you should have less fat cells in the area that had received treatment. If you were to put on weight, you would distribute the fat in other areas more than the area of liposuction.
What are Common Side Effects?
Generally speaking, the best candidate for any form of liposuction is a person who is in good shape, but has a problem area that persists regardless of weight and level of physical activity.
The side effects are very similar to other forms of ultrasonic liposuction can include swelling, bruising, and some drainage. However, the benefits are unmatched. This procedure not only selectively removes the fat and gives you the chiseled look, but it also greatly tightens the skin.
