Vaser lipo

What is it?

Modern procedure allowing to get rid of excessive fat deposits and shape body contours. Using the latest ultrasound technology to safely and delicately sculpt the body, VASER Lipo replaces traditional and very invasive liposuction. The main advantage of this technology is the fact, that it is able to distinguish between fat and other tissues (blood vessels, nerves etc.). It does not damage important tissues breaking up the fat only, which results in quicker healing and fantastic effects.

Who it is for?

Vaser lipo is a perfect solution for everyone who is generally healthy and thinking of getting rid of unwanted, hard to eliminate fat deposits in a quick and low-pain way. Initial qualification for the procedure is done by the surgeon on the basis of photos. Blood tests and direct consultations with the surgeon and an anaesthetist are done after arrival to Poland.

Vaser lipo gives several advantages over traditional liposuction techniques. One of the most important one is the result achieved thanks to Vaser lipo procedure. Not only are the stubborn fat deposits effectively eliminated, but also the skin becomes very smooth and body contours are better visible, thus giving you very aesthetic, natural look.

Thanks to the implementation of ultrasound technology, the recovery time is minimal as well. Only the fat is dissolved, while other tissues are left intact allowing the patient to quickly return to their everyday routine.

Traditional method of removing unnecessary fat is also much more invasive, as the tissue is mechanically broken up and then removed through a special tube. Thanks to Vaser lipo the whole procedure is much simpler, as the fat cells are destroyed through heating. The necessary incision is very small and the risk of damaging other tissues is very low.

Surgery info

Vaser lipo procedure is performed under sedation combined local anaesthetics (Warsaw Józefów clinic) or general anaesthetics (Katowice clinic) by an experienced and qualified surgeon, assisted by a certified anaesthetist. The surgery is conducted in a disinfected operating room. During the first step, a special tumescent saline solution is injected to the area to be reshaped (it helps to numb it and reduce the size of blood vessels, thus minimize bruising as well as blood loss). As a result, breaking up of the fat tissue with the use of Vaser lipo’s ultrasounds is much easier. In the next step, a small probe is used to transmit the ultrasounds and dissolve the fat, without damaging other tissues. In the end, the liquefied fat is gently sucked out in a process, which minimizes the damage to other important cells and tissues, including blood vessels, nerves and others. The patient is able to walk out of the clinic soon after the surgery is over (unless they are staying overnight) and is provided with all painkillers, antithrombotics, antibiotics and other medication and compression garment needed after the Vaser lipo procedure.
