PowerX Vaser Liposuction, widely known as Vaser Lipo or ultrasonic liposuction, is an amazing and modern form of lipo that can help you remove unwanted fat. Ultrasonic liposuction is minimally invasive and precise, it targets selective fatty areas but other tissue remains undamaged. This results in less down time and more immediate results than traditional liposuction.
Vaser is one of the most popular forms of liposuction available, targeting those unwanted fatty areas you struggle to budge like love handles (flanks) inner thighs or even bingo wings. MYA’s “PowerX” Vaser machines use ultrasonic energy to selectively break apart the fatty tissue whist still preserving essential tissues. The ultrasonic sound waves that the small probes emit break apart the fat on contact. The fat then becomes liquified and is gently removed by an cannula via suction through tiny incisions. The discrete incisions are between 3-4mm so there is usually no need for dissolvable stitches as they are so small. The Ultrasound (ultrasonic) technology is powerful enough to target multiple large areas as well as being gentle enough to treat delicate areas such as the chin.
Ultrasonic liposuction has been in development since 1998 and was introduced in 2002 in America. MYA were one of the first UK providers to offer this form of Ultrasonic-assisted liposuction in early 2013. Due to this new technology, a much higher quantity of fat can be removed in a shorter time meaning ultrasonic liposuction can be carried out under local anaesthetic with sedition as a day case procedure. Ultrasonic lipsocution will not be suitable for all patients so it is highly recommended to arrange a free informative consultation to discover the best treatment for you.
Vaser liposuction can take between 30 minutes – 2 hours (maximum treatment time) and this can be from multiple areas. Your Vaser surgeon will discuss the time it will take to treat the areas required. Recovery time for Vaser lipo can be faster than traditional liposuction (surgical lipo) meaning you can usually return to non-physical work after 3-4 days. You will be required to wear a compression garment for 4-6 weeks along with a 4D vest for 2-4 weeks if your abdomen or flanks are treated. All garments are supplied at no additional cost, for more information on pricing for this procedure, click here.
