Traditional liposuction removes fat deposits, creating a slimmer body contour. Vaser® High Def takes it to the next level. The idea behind this procedure is to not only remove excess fat and stubborn flab from problem areas, but also to craft a sculpted appearance that gives people an incredibly toned, muscular look. Vaser® High Def Lipo Sculpture gives men and women definition in their abs, arms, legs, chest and buttocks without having to log countless hours in the gym.
This procedure differs from conventional liposuction in that it uses advanced Vaser® ultrasound technology to target specific areas of fat directly below the skin, removing it through small incisions made around the muscles. The fat is then injected so surgeons can contour, reshape and manipulate the tissue to give it a more defined look. The procedure requires a combination of ultrasound energy waves to liquefy the fat, and the artistic eye of a trained professional to sculpt the desired look.
Apart from a quick solution to stubborn flab, Vaser® High Def is also beneficial for those fitness fiends looking for defined bodies that cardio and resistance training cannot deliver. For many people who exercise, muscle definition is difficult to accomplish due to fat or body type. Vaser® High Def can provide patients with the toned body they have always dreamed of without the workout. Also, Vaser® High Def Lipo Sculpture is a convenient way to transfer fat to other areas of the body, adding more padding where needed, such as breasts or buttocks.
Vaser® High Def is unique in that it only targets fat cells and tissue under the skin, without affecting surrounding vessels or nerves. The wand is so precise that it can treat fat in small areas, taking inches off waistlines and creating flat abs. The procedure is relatively quick, and requires less downtime than other forms of liposuction. Since it removes such a specific area of fat, there is a reduced risk of muscle and skin laxity occurring after surgery.
Even though Vaser® High Def is a safe and effective procedure, there are some setbacks to the surgery. Since it is an extensive body contouring procedure, requiring numerous incisions to remove the fat, noticeable scars will be left behind. Other side effects of Vaser® High Def Lipo Sculpture include numbness and pain at the treatment site, inflammation and seroma. Also, it can take up to six months to see full results.
The cost of Vaser® High Def will depend on how much fat the patient wants removed, the extent of body sculpting, the selected doctor and the geographical location. On average, most people end up paying around $3,000 for the treatment. This number will fluctuate with each individual, and the best way to determine the cost is to consult with a surgeon. He or she can give you an accurate estimate on overall cost, as well as offer you patient financing options to help pay for the surgery.
The ideal candidates for Vaser® High Def are physically healthy and slim, but want to remove stubborn fat and get a more defined body. However, everyone’s body is different, so if you are interested in this procedure it’s a good idea to meet with a certified plastic surgeon to discuss your medical history and aesthetic goals. Vaser® High Def should not be performed after massive weight loss as it only treats smaller pockets of excess fat. It should also not be performed on patients with severe stretch marks on their abdomens or thighs, because it will only emphasize the scars.
