What is the difference between VASER LIPOSUCTION and LIPOSUCTION
This question is one of the most frequently asked questions by my patients. In order to shed light on this question, I will tell you the difference between Liposuction and Vaser Liposuction.
First, we can start by understanding what Vaser Liposuction is. The main logic of Vaser Liposuction is similar to Liposuction. But the most important feature that distinguishes Vaser Liposuction from Liposuction is ultrasound technology. Another important feature that distinguishes the two is the way Vaser Liposuction affects the fat tissue. Ultrasound focuses only on fat cells in subcutaneous fat tissue. It breaks down and liquefies the fat cells with the help of a special sound wave.
These fat cells separated from the surface of the skin are then sucked from the body with the help of special cannulas. In this way, more fat cells are taken out from the body at one time compared to liposuction. Besides, Vaser Liposuction can also reveal abdominal muscles aka six pack. This process is called Hi – Def. Liposuction, on the other hand, is based on taking the fat cells out of the body with the cannula technique. But as I mentioned above, it does not benefit from ultrasound system. Other advantages of Vaser Liposuction are seen during the recovery period.
The patient who chooses to get rid of regional fat with Vaser Liposuction experiences less pain compared to classic Liposuction during the recovery period and the pain can be suppressed with the help of simple oral pain killers. Less bruising is seen on the skin surface compared to classic liposuction and edema is immensely less noticeable.
The reason for this is that Vaser Liposuction focuses on fat cells and gives the least damage to the surrounding tissues. Thanks to these advantages, the patient returns to their social life in shorter time after Vaser Liposuction operation. Vaser Liposuction patients are more likely to have more effective results and shorter recovery period. Vaser Liposuction can be applied in a single area or in combination.
After the Vaser Liposuction and Liposuction operation, a corset must be worn and it is necessary to wear this corset during the recommended period which is approximately 3 weeks. The bruises decrease and recovery starts in this process.
