Vaser Lipo Patient Consultation Process

Evaluating Liposuction Suitability 

Many people contact us to ask whether they are suitable candidates for Vaser liposuction. We always insist they come to our clinic for an in-depth consultation so we can evaluate their suitability, and give examination-based advice on what they can reasonably hope to achieve.

Bodysculpting surgeries such as Vaser are aesthetic procedures not required for good health, however, a patient's emotional well-being can be affected by their body perceptions.  Lipo procedures can help refine an individual's profile, and in so doing improve their self confidence.

It is key, however, that doctors carefully evaluate patient suitability and expectations, and then communicate to them in depth about what can be reasonably achieved.  The consultation process evaluates both the patient's physical and psychological suitability, and provides both quantitative and qualitative data that serve as a basis on which the doctor and patient cn make better decisions about surgery.

This following video illustrates what you can expect, and the process used at our clinic.

Vaser Lipo Swelling, Bruising, and Numbness

How Long Does Vaser Lipo Swelling Last?

At the Dr. Alexandra Chambers Medical and Aesthetic Practice, Vaser Swellingone of our most popular treatments is Vaser Liposuction, a low-impact body sculpting procedure. In our clinic, we typically remove on average three to four litres of sub-dermal fat, and the target areas are varied, including the abdomen, ankles, arms, back, buttocks, chest, chin, flanks, jowls, knees, neck, and thighs.

Vaser lipo surgery is performed with a local anaesthetic, and thanks to its pulsed ultrasound technology, it is very efficient at liquefying and removing fat. This is in contrast to traditional liposuction, which requires general anaesthesia, and in general, is a much less effective fat removal method. The result is that Vaser is safer, less expensive, providing better more controlled results, and, post-operatively, is much lower impact. It is lower impact because the body recover faster from local anaesthesia, and because the skin layer suffers much less trauma. Thanks to these reasons, it is typically possible to resume one's normal life within a day of a Vaser operation.

Swelling of Vaser Liposuction versus Traditional Liposuction

How Much Swelling Can I Expect From Vaser Lipo?

Liposuction is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure that effectively removes fat from underneath the skin. Most procedures involve one of two popular methods; traditional liposuction or VASER liposuction.

Vaser lipo uses ultrasound waves to break up fat after which it is removed by traditional suction methods. Traditional liposuction involves breaking up the fat by sticking a tube or cannula to give it its medical term, under the skin and passing it backwards and forwards. This process involves incisions to be made in the skin and can be quite rough on the areas being treated.

Vaser is a much more gentle way of breaking up fat and therefore less swelling will be apparent once the procedure is complete. However, it is important to remember that Vaser liposuction is a surgical procedure and that some swelling is normal and to be expected. The results of liposuction are well worth the short period of discomfort you may feel during the period before the swelling disappears.
