choosing the Belvedere for VASER Liposuction
It can be hard to get the body shape you desire and some areas are just too stubborn when it comes to losing fat.
Every body type has specific areas that are more predisposed to fat collection, sometimes even the most determined efforts to dispose of this stored fat is met with discouraging results. Advanced VASER techniques combined with superior Liposuction technology now allows for safer alternative cosmetic procedures to address unwanted fat, revealing a new shape and faster recovery times.
What is the Procedure for VASER Liposuction Surgery?
Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that removes fat deposits from under the skin. VASER liposuction is an advanced method of body contouring designed to selectively remove unwanted portions of body fat.
VASER liposuction breaks apart fat cells and loosens them from deeper tissues so that fat can be more effectively removed. It differs from traditional liposuction in that it is considered a more controlled and gentle kind of procedure for fat removal, since nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue can be damaged by traditional liposuction procedures.
Generally you are considered a good candidate for liposuction if you’re a healthy person who doesn’t smoke or have a history of bleeding conditions. This procedure is for those who are trying to spot-treat fat deposits and reveal muscle tone underneath.
The biggest difference between VASER and traditional liposuction is the capacity to target fat while leaving other fragile tissues unharmed. Modern innovative Vaser technology breaks up fatty build up while leaving other tissues intact. This results in a smoother operation and reduced recovery period.
During VASER liposuction, you’ll likely be put under general anaesthesia or a form of anaesthesia called conscious sedation. A saline solution or tumescent fluid mixed with an anaesthetic will be injected into the targeted area. Then, ultrasound probes will be inserted into the skin through a small incision to break up the fatty tissue.
The fatty tissue will gently start to break apart, and a cannula will be used to vacuum out the fatty tissue and most of the fluid through the same port. Some of the fluid will be left in your body to numb post-procedural pain. Your body will absorb it over the following days.

VASER is an acronym for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance. This ultrasound technology uses powerful waves to disrupt the bonds between fat cells.
All types of liposuction operate on the same premise. Fat deposits are broken apart and then removed from your body by suctioning out the fat from under the skin. VASER liposuction is a form of ultrasonic liposuction.
VASER liposuction allows a gentle and very precise way to remove fat. It disrupts the connection between fatty tissue and the muscles underneath without hurting the underlying healthy tissue. This liquid can then be gently removed with a delicate suction tool perfectly designed for minimizing trauma to any surrounding blood vessels, nerves or connecting tissues.

Yes, the great thing about VASER Liposuction is the capacity it has to address more than one body part at a time.
The idea behind this particular procedure is to create a more appealing silhouette, so we are aiming overall for a slimmer more contoured body profile.
That depends on the extensiveness of the operation, how much fat is being removed as well as how many areas were addressed by a single procedure. Many patients have reported dynamic results within days of the procedure and many others had to wait 3 months or more. You may be able to get a more specific indication following your consultation.
To prepare for your appointment, make sure your doctor is aware of any medications that you’re taking. Avoid taking blood-thinning medication in the 2 weeks before a liposuction procedure.
Also, avoid drinking alcohol the night before the procedure. Your doctor may give you additional instructions to prepare for VASER liposuction. Make sure you follow these instructions carefully.
After VASER liposuction, you are likely to experience some bruising and swelling in the target areas. Your body will need to heal before you see any results.
The target areas will weep fluid for the next 24 to 48 hours. Sterilised cotton pads can be used to dress the affected areas. It’s a good idea to drink extra fluids to flush the anaesthesia from your body and you should also wear a compression garment for several weeks to help reduce the swelling.
It can take about 3 to 6 months for your body to settle into its desired form. For some people, it may take a couple more months to see results.
Results from VASER liposuction can be permanent, but you must maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine so that your body doesn’t regain the fat deposits that were removed.
You should also understand that weight fluctuations, inflammation, and gravity can all change the way your results look over time as you age.
