What is VASER Liposuction?

VASER Liposuction is an effective procedure to enhance body contour. It uses ultrasonic technology to effectively emulsify fatty tissues for easy removal through suction.

Can Liposuction be done in men?

Yes! VASER liposuction is ideal for anyone who requires removal of excess fat, although it is not recommended for patients below 18 years old. Men, typically, seek liposuction for their tummy, love handles, and chest area. For women, tummy, love handles and thighs.

How is the Liposuction done?

The procedure is done as an outpatient surgery where patients can return home the same day. It is carried out under sedation and local anaesthesia. 

What is Sedation?

Sedation is a type of anaesthesia where a cocktail of sedative medications and pain killers are introduced to the patient through an intravenous line (a line through a vein in the arm).

What is the difference between Sedation and General Anaesthesia?

The adverse effects associated with general anaesthesia is avoided with sedation. Similarly, a patient undergoing sedation maintains physiological reflexes and are able to breathe on their own. In General Anaesthesia (GA), all reflexes are affected including spontaneous breathing. Thus, a breathing machine is necessary during procedures under GA. The recovery with sedation is also faster compared to GA. 

How long is the Liposuction procedure?

The length of the surgery will depend on the number of areas required. Generally, it’s an hour per area.
