VASER VS. TRADITIONAL ARM LIPOSUCTION
Traditional liposuction has some limitations. The skin covering the upper arm area is very thing and fragile, which is why irregularities can easily occur and be noticeable to the naked eye.
Also, traditional liposuction usually implies using aggressive aspiration methods for fat removal. This can lead to a greater amount of scarring, bruising, and pain.
On the other hand, Vaser liposuction is a new minimally invasive procedure with small incisions in well-hidden areas. Patients will not have the big, ugly scars commonly associated with traditional liposuction or arm lifts.
Additionally, Vaser lipo is well known to stimulate new collagen production, giving a skin-tightening effect. So, you get two problems solved at the same time! Patients who used to be ruled out for traditional liposuction on the arms can now be treated using this technique.
But beware. When skin sagging is severe, an arm lift is typically performed six months after liposuction to remove the excess skin. However, you could have the arm lift at the same time as arm liposuction, so the surgeon may request a one-day hospital stay.
DURING THE SURGERY
Arm Vaser liposuction is an improvement of the original liposuction. It is performed on an outpatient basis, without hospitalization.
This cosmetic procedure is performed in the operating room under local anaesthetic and sedation if the patient feels anxious. This avoids the risks associated with a general anaesthetic.
After the anaesthetic has numbed the arm, a tumescent fluid is injected into the targeted area to help separate the fat from the surrounding tissues. Then, a VASER probe will be inserted under the skin to emit ultrasound pulses, melting (liquefying) the fat.
VASER is an acronym for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance.
After this, the surgeon will remove the fat through a gentle suction process using a small cannula. The technique minimizes the risk of disrupting the nerves and surrounding tissue. Also, it keeps bruising and swelling to a minimum.
The advantages of Vaser lipo are:
- Minimally invasive.
- No ugly scars. The surgery leaves a few slight scars hidden in the armpit crease and above the elbow.
- The procedure is relatively quick (1,5-3hrs) with the possibility to treat other areas of the body at the same time.
- Little downtime. You will have to take 2-3 days off work.
- A skin-tightening effect.
- No pain, no general anesthesia, no hospital stay!
