Liposuction & Vaser Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that helps to remove unwanted fat from certain areas of the body such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks and arms. It is an effective way to improve body contour and increase self-confidence. However, over the years, with the innovations brought by technological developments in medical aesthetics, traditional liposuction has been replaced by vaser liposuction, a more advanced and advanced liposuction method. We offer this latest technology liposuction method to our patients in Aktif International hospitals.

What is vaser liposuction?

While traditional liposuction uses mechanical suction to remove fat tissue, vaserliposuction uses ultrasound energy. Ultrasound waves break down fat cells and then these broken down fat cells are removed. After the fat is broken down with ultrasound waves, a much smoother appearance remains instead of a wavy appearance. Vaserliposuction is preferred because it is less traumatic and achieves a smoother result and can target more specific areas.

Vaser liposuction is an effective way to remove stubborn fat and improve body contour. It can be a safe and beneficial procedure with the right surgeon and appropriate aftercare. It is important to understand the different types of liposuction, potential risks and complications before deciding to have surgery.

It should also be noted that throughout this article, when we say liposuction, we mean the state-of-the-art vaser liposuction method.

How it is performed

Before the procedure, you will undergo a thorough medical evaluation to determine your eligibility for the surgery. You will be given anesthesia to ensure you do not feel any pain during the procedure. The surgeon will then make small incisions in the target area and insert a cannula to suction out the fat. The procedure can take anywhere from one to several hours, depending on the amount of fat being removed.

After the procedure, you will be given specific instructions on how to care for yourself during the recovery period. You may experience some swelling and bruising, but this will subside within a few weeks. Most people are able to return to work and their normal activities within a few days to a week.
