Vaser Liposuction & 3D Body Contouring

Liposuction has for long been one of the most popular procedures in cosmetic surgery. It belongs to the group of body-contouring procedures, which also includes tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), Skin-Tightening procedures (arm, thigh and buttock lifts) and Muscle enhancing procedures (calf, buttock and pectoral implants, and abdominal six-pack etching).
In the early days of liposuction fat removal, surgery was performed with large-bore cannulae, and such early procedures were often less than ideal, being fraught with irregularities such as asymmetrical results, blood loss and sometimes infection. Since then, techniques have developed rapidly to the point where surgeries have become not only safer and more effective but also less costly.

Traditional & High Definition Liposuction Techniques

Modern liposuction methods are typically characterised by several advantages:

  • They are better tolerated by patients and carry a much lower risk of complications
  • Patients experience less pain and shorter post-operative down-time
  • There is less blood loss and bruising
  • They are less expensive due to the shorter operating time
  • Surgeons can contour the body to any desirable angle, producing a more aesthetically appealing result.

There are Traditional and also various types of High-definition Liposuction, in particular the advanced VASER Liposuction, known commercially as VASERlipo®.

Traditional Liposuction is the original form of fat removal. It usually involves the use of much larger cannulae and conventional suction machines. The aim is typically to remove only the deeper layer of fat and not totally remove all of the body’s fat deposits.

High-definition Liposuction or Liposculpture is a more modern development of conventional liposuction. It uses much smaller cannulae and involves suctioning fat from areas much closer to the surface of the skin. As a result, it leaves far less residual fat, and, in experienced hands, will produce a much smoother, aesthetically pleasing result. The suction may be applied either by machine or in a much gentler way employing a simple, hand-held syringe (the latter procedure known as “superficial syringe liposculpture”). By using such small instruments, Mr Rezai is able to sculpt the body in a more gentle, controlled manner.

Mr Rezai uses whichever technique, or combination of techniques, that he feels is necessary, having recommended a personalised treatment plan at your consultation.
