VASER is NOT an alternative to liposuction, it is an extra step before we perform liposuction. However, the results from this extra step mean, we can achieve much cleaner, much higher definition results.
VASERlipo is unique in its ability to target fat while leaving other important tissues intact. The minimally invasive ultrasound technology is powerful enough to eliminate large areas of fat as well as being suitable to treat more delicate areas. The use of ultrasound also promotes skin tightening and quicker healing.
The VASERlipo procedure is considered to be less traumatic with a quicker recovery time when compared to liposuction. First, the area to be reshaped is filled with a tumescent saline solution. A small probe then transmits the ultrasound energy to break up and dislodge the fat. Next, a cannula removes the dislodged fat through a gentle suction process.
Noticeable results vary according to the amount of fat removed, the number of areas treated, and other factors. Many patients report that they see results immediately after the procedure with the final results around three to four months later.
The procedure is performed under a local anaesthetic with light sedation, resulting in a short recovery period and minimal downtime.
VASERlipo offers a more precise removal of fat when compared to traditional liposuction. Small and large amounts of fat can be removed with VASERlipo for body contouring and creating muscle definition. The fat removed during the procedure can also be used for other fat grafting procedures, such as a Buttock Contour Correction procedure.
Below are a list of typical areas and costs associated with VASERlipo in combination with traditional liposuction procedure.
We can perform VASERlipo to any area of your body, for individual areas the typical cost is $2,000* on top of standard liposuction prices. We are happy to combine areas and save you costs.
*These are typical costs, for the average person it should not change. However, every patient is different, these prices may change per patient scenario.
