How does Vaser Hi Def liposculpture work?
Vaser Hi Def Liposculpture uses deep, superficial, and transitioning techniques in specific areas of the torso to create a more natural muscular appearance. Intramuscular fat transfer into the areas of the torso that need more volume have helped patients achieve their goals for a more athletic looking appearance.
What is the difference between Vaser Liposelection and Hi Def Lipo?
Hi Def Liposculpture defines athletic muscular structures in a normal and fit body, whereas liposelection targets pockets of resistant fat in order to create a more pleasing body. The Hi Def procedure is intended for those who are already physically fit and active who want to enhance their athletic form. Liposelection simply removes fat that refuses to go away despite continued diet and exercise.
Who is an ideal candidate for Vaser Hi Def Liposculpture?
This procedure is meant for body sculpting rather than fat removal. Therefore, men and women who are fit and active with good muscle tone and skin quality are ideal candidates for Hi Def Liposculpture. The typical patient maintains a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise but is still unable to achieve the desired athletic appearance.
What areas of the body can be treated with Vaser Hi Def Liposculpture?
Multiple areas of the body can be treated with this procedure, including the abdomen, chest, back, waist, arms, thighs, buttocks, and hips. Men typically request for six-pack abs and a defined chest and waist. Women typically request for more defined abs, waist, hips, and buttocks.
What should I expect after my treatment?
After your treatment, you should be able to resume normal activities within a few days. Most patients report mild to moderate pain and swelling, although some patients may experience more pain or bruising than others. Results can be seen right after the procedure and become more evident about two weeks later when the swelling has reduced. Patients are advised not to resume regular exercising until a month after the procedure. Final results are typically seen after four to six months.
What is the difference between the Vaser procedure and laser liposuction?
Vaser procedures use ultrasound energy to liquify and remove fat cells, while laser liposuction uses a laser to heat and dissolve the fat. In addition, the Vaser procedure generates heat under the skin to cause the overlying collagen to contract and the skin to tighten. Vaser also differs from laser liposuction in that it is able to distinguish between fat cells and other body tissue (nerves, muscle, blood cells, etc), therefore decreasing the chance of tissue damage. Because laser liposuction is not tissue selective, there could be possible damage done to surrounding tissue.
