VASER LipoSelection®

What if you could …

… remove your unwanted fat and experience only low to minimal pain?

 … enjoy a new body contour that is smooth as well as shapely?

 … reshape those trouble spots that just won’t respond to diet and exercise?

VASER LipoSelection® combines new patented technology with advanced surgical techniques to break up and remove fatty tissue. Unwanted fat can be efficiently removed from abs, arms, back, hips, knees, love handles, neck and chin, saddlebags, thighs – any place you’ve developed a little “extra cushioning.” The VASER System uses ultrasound energy to break up and emulsify fat, leaving surrounding tissue – such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue – relatively intact. Only the VASER LipoSelection® procedure can offer you an experience that is UltraSelective, UltraSmooth, UltraSound! The VASER LipoSelection® procedure uses the VASER System’s patented innovative ultrasound technology for fatty tissue emulsion and proprietary cannulae designed to minimize tissue trauma during aspiration. Because nerves and blood vessels are largely undisturbed, patients and physicians report low to minimal pain and bruising. Moreover, the VASER LipoSelection® procedure allows physicians to work with such precision that they can shape delicate areas like the inner thighs, arms, chin and neck.

How VASER LipoSelection® Works

The VASER Technology used for the VASER LipoSelection® procedure is efficient and precise because the sound waves it emits break up fatty tissue while leaving surrounding tissues largely undisturbed. Treatment with the VASER System has been reported to produce low to minimal pain, low to minimal bruising and swelling, and few complications. Fatty tissue consists primarily of adipose (fat) cells, but it also contains other important tissues, including nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue (see graphic illustration below). The VASER System utilizes proprietary ultrasound technology to break up fatty tissue before removal. Sound energy, similar to that used to remove a cataract from the eye, fragments fatty tissue. Fat cells, which are large and soft, break apart (think of how easily a full water balloon will burst) while leaving nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue largely undisturbed.

During procedure

The procedure usually performed under General Anaesthesia(GA), however Local Anaesthesia may be used for suitable candidates. With GA, more risks will be associated with the procedure. Depending on the area being treated, one to three hours may be required. The procedure usually begins with the area to be sculpted being filled with a medicated saline solution which helps to numb the site and shrink blood vessels. A small incision will be made about 2 to 3 millimetres. The Vaser probe is introduced to emulsify the fat using the ultrasound technology before removal through a gentle suction. After the procedure, fine silicone drains are inserted into the incision sites as an adjunct for speedy recovery. The patient can be discharged and be advised to wear a compressions garment to speed up recovery. 1 few days to a few weeks for complete recovery will be required. Bruising and swelling will subside within 2 weeks. Patients are advised to perform regular exercises in the long run.

Costs: Price ranges from RM5,000 to RM18,000 per area.

    Just a suggestion to help your site…proof read your last comments! You may want to change “Bruising and swelling will SUICIDE…” to “SUBSIDE”–Two different meanings!!! Love the site, though!
