Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure designed to remove excess fat on areas of the body such as the tummy, back, flanks, thighs, neck and a lot more.
VASER liposuction is a modern technological advancement that specifically targets fat cells and leaving other tissues like blood vessels and nerves intact. Because of its specific target on fat cells, there is less bleeding.
Liposuction and Anaesthesia
VASER liposuction can be done under local anaesthesia with light sedation. This is not to be confused with general anaesthesia. Sedation provides relaxing anaesthesia where patients are in deep sleep and feels no pain. The recovery with sedation is also faster than general anaesthesia. Patients can go home the same day after two to three hours of recovery at the clinic.
What to expect after Liposuction
After the operation, a compression garment is worn for a month. This helps minimise swelling and keeps the targeted areas in position.
The extent of bruising and swelling varies from patient to patient. However, these will lessen and fade after a few weeks. Patients can return to their normal activities in a couple of weeks. Making sure that the compression garment is worn half of the day.
Sometimes, a collection of fluid known as seroma can occur. If the seroma is small, the body will eventually absorb them. However, if the seroma persists and gets bigger, aspiration may be necessary. Aspiration involves piercing a tiny hole and aspirating the seroma using a syringe. This may require multiple treatments until the seroma is managed.
You may already see the result by the time the swelling has gone down, in a month. However, the final result will take around six months.
VASER liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure nor treats obesity. It is a body contouring procedure with the aim of removing stubborn fat that does not respond to exercise or diet. It is also important that in order to maintain the result, a healthy diet and lifestyle should go hand in hand after liposuction.
