Each year, thousands of men and women choose liposuction, making it one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the UK. A large proportion of these customers are now opting for non-surgical `Vaser` lipo, mainly because they are attracted to the reduced recovery period, no general anaesthic, minimal bruising, and other benefits. Today, there are more choices than ever – with Vaser lipo proving an increasingly attractive alternative to traditional liposuction procedures.
Like traditional liposuction, Vaser (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) lipo is not a weight loss procedure. Instead, it helps to sculpt and tone specific areas of the body, working to remove stubborn areas of fat that can often remain despite hours of effort in the gym.
Vaser lipo works by using ultrasound technology to speed up the vibrations in your body’s cells. Your doctor targets the fat cells in the treatment area and over a period of anywhere between one and three hours using the ultrasound technology to break them down. Once the fat cells have broken down into a fluid, a cannula is inserted and the fat is removed.
After just three weeks, the effect of Vaser lipo is likely to show. You’ll need to remain active and eat well afterwards, but the results are clear to see for those who do the right things in the weeks and months after their procedures.
Traditional liposuction has been around for centuries, so why are so many people now choosing Vaser lipo?
Non-surgical Vaser lipo uses a local anaesthetic, so you are awake during the procedure but can’t feel the area being treated. Non-surgical Vaser lipo also has the benefit of being able to be completed on several areas in the same procedure and is regularly used to target ‘love handles’ and fat stores in the tummy, abdomen, back, thighs and arms. Non-surgical liposuction also uses ultrasound technology to break down fat deposits.
