Surgery Explained

The Vaser LipoSelection procedure is performed utilising advanced proprietary patented technology.

A solid metal probe is inserted through a small skin incision into the fatty deposit. Ultrasonic energy emitted from the sides and the end of the probe as it is passed back and forth, breaks down the fatty deposits while leaving nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue largely undisturbed.

A hollow metal cannula is then inserted and is directed through the area of emulsified fat. The cannula is attached to a vacuum source which provides gentle aspiration to remove the fat.

The LipoSelection by Vaser is unique in that it first targets and disrupts fat cells and then draws them off (as emulsified fat) leaving the collagen matrix intact. Surgical trauma, complications and the potential for post-operative pain and bruising are minimized while skin retraction is optimal.

LipoSelection by Vaser may be performed under local anaesthesia and requires the infiltration of fluid containing dilute local anaesthetic and adrenaline (or epinephrine) into areas of fatty deposits. This technique can reduce the discomfort at the time of the surgery as well as reduce the potential for bruising.

Support garments and dressings are worn after the surgery to control potential swelling and promote healing. The garments also provide comfort and support, and help the skin better fit the new body contour.
