The cosmetic surgery intervention to sculpt one's body
The Vaser Lipo system of the Clinic LUS Fly is an innovative technique of non-surgical cold ultrasonic liposuction to reshape your body. Minimally invasive and highly versatile, it is an intervention that allows a wide range of interventions to be carried out: starting from significant reductions in the volume of subcutaneous fat, up to precise sculpting operations in any area of the body.
The Vaser technique uses ultrasonic waves that take aim and shatter fat deposits, preserving the surrounding tissues. This "liposelection" is comparable to a thief’s skill who enters the body, gently steals the fat and leaves the rest intact. The ultrasonic waves of Vaser Lipo are designed to destroy only fat cells and turn them into an inert liquid, which we easily extract from the body, through aspiration.
For this reason, it is impossible to compare the Vaser Lipo method with the other liposuction techniques: it is simply a new minimally invasive category for shaping the body. With the other methods surveys can arise and the recovery is much slower. With Vaser Lipo, it is normal for the patient to undergo thigh surgery on a Friday and go back to work on Monday. With other methods of liposuction, recovery can last for more than two weeks.
It is important to note that Vaser Lipo is very effective for firming the skin, so do not worry about excess skin after liposuction.
This type of intervention is ideal for people in normal weight with well-delimited and localized fat deposits, in which there is no skin laxity, good elasticity of the skin and absence of cellulite.
Before the Vaser Lipo operation
Above all, it is necessary to arrange a visit with our surgeon, who will first follow the evaluation of the patient's state of health and risk, then he will prepare a correct planning of the intervention in order to guarantee a result that is as close as possible to the wishes of the patient, consistent with his physical characteristics.
Hematochemical and instrumental exams, such as electrocardiogram and chest X-ray, will be prescribed.
It is important to suspend at least 15 days before surgery the use of anti-inflammatory drugs such as acetylsalicylic acid, and all drugs that can increase the likelihood of bleeding. It is also strongly recommended to avoid smoking.
Finally, a couple of days before surgery, antibiotic prophylaxis must be started.
The Vaser Lipo intervention
Regarding anesthesia, it will be practiced general or local (epidural) for the lower districts, depending on the extent and the importance of the intervention, and then injecting a tumescent anesthetic solution into the fat layer. The high frequency vibration of Vaser's ultrasound probes breaks down the adipose tissue whose cells disperse into the previously inoculated liquid, so the liquefied fat is easily removed from the body by gentle suction.
As the nerves and blood vessels remain intact, patients experience a minimal pain and report limited ecchymoses after surgery. Furthermore, this new method allows our surgeons to work with such precision that they can shape delicate areas, for example the inner thighs, arms, chin and neck.
Ultrasonic liposuction is also able to remove fat from areas usually treated with the traditional liposuction technique, such as the areas of abdominals, buttocks, thighs, knees, culottes, hips, arms...
In order to favor the remodeling of the profile and make the low-cut tissues adhere to each other, also reducing the probability that blood collections are formed, a containment sheath is positioned after suturing the stitches.
Intact clustered fat cells can be used later for lipofilling procedures.
