Vaser Liposuction (High Definition)

Vaser Liposuction (High Definition)

Request Consultation

Vaser liposuction is a treatment that is obtained quite regularly at the Dr Lanzer Clinic. It is a common procedure for both male and female patients. To learn more about Vaser lipo, please read the information provided by the Dr Lanzer Clinic below.

What Is The Vaser Liposuction Procedure?

High definition Vaser Liposuction works by selectively removing small deposits of fat cells surrounding specific muscle groups; this to enhance the visibility of the natural muscle contour. The technique focusses on precision and removing superficial and deep fat around the muscle groups to enhance the underlying musculature.

Dr Lanzer was the “first doctor in Australia” to travel overseas and receive hands-on training in the Vaser Hi-Def Liposculpture method by the surgeons who discovered the Vaser liposuction method. Since then, Dr Lanzer has refined his own method, based on his personal experience of 15,000 liposuction cases, allowing him to create a muscular and athletic appearance in the abdomen of both men and women. Dr Lanzer has further developed this concept and found that ultrasound technology can be used on both athletic patients who work out at the gym, but who find it hard to achieve or keep their “athletic stomach look”, as well as overweight patients who want more definition and a muscular look.

VASER® liposculpture is the realisation of anatomy and art, utilising techniques and technology. Dr Lanzer recognises how the anatomy of skin, fat and muscle contributes to the sculptured appearance of the human form. This technique that he has developed as a cosmetic surgeon shows ways of accentuating each of these structures, contribution to the sculpted body, not by a new diet and exercise program, but in this technique of VASER® High-Definition Liposculpture Liposuction.

Does Vaser Tighten Skin?

Vaser liposuction is executed with some traditional liposuction techniques; this by using the tumescent liposuction method. Therefore, the recovery, risks, and general effects are quite similar. However, the principle difference is the use of Vaser third-generation ultrasound, which maximises skin retraction following fat removed through the cosmetic procedure. In some cases, where there is mild to moderate skin laxity, Dr Lanzer may recommend additional laser resurfacing the stimulate the collagen fibres in the skin.

Why Is Vaser Liposuction So Beneficial?

During Vaser lipo, the surgeon will target small fat deposits in certain areas. As a direct result, the natural muscle contour will be a lot more visible, giving you a more toned appearance. The fat deposits targeted are situated around the muscle groups, making it the perfect procedure to make your muscles look more defined.

Patients that undergo a procedure under general anaesthetic usually feel extremely fatigued for another 24 hours. If you have a local anaesthetic used with Vaser, you will experience less fatigue. However, we still recommend not driving yourself home after the surgery. It is always safer to have someone drive you home instead.

During Vaser, Dr Lanzer will also seal blood vessels. By doing so, there is a reduced chance of bleeding. Even though this can be described as minimally invasive, patients will experience some bruising after the procedure, yet sealing the blood vessels may reduce bruising to some degree.

Another advantage of Vaser laser liposuction is the fact that a greater amount of fat can be removed more easily, this since Vaser will melt fat so it comes out smooth and even. The fluid used during the procedure is also anti-bacterial, so there is less chance of infections.

Vaser lipo uses deep, superficial and transitioning liposculpture techniques in specific anatomical areas to create more natural, muscular appearance of the patients’ body shapes.

What Are The Summarised Benefits Of Vaser Liposuction?

  • Numbs the area, so the procedure does not necessarily require a general anaesthetic;
  • Post-surgery discomfort could be reduced;
  • Seals the blood vessels so that there is little or no bleeding, resulting in safer liposuction and less bruising. There is generally no need for intravenous ‘drips’ or blood transfusions;
  • Softens the fat so that it comes out smoothly and evenly, allowing much greater amounts of fat to be removed safely;
  • The fluid used is anti-bacterial, which could have a positive impact on the prevention of post-operative infection;
  • Allows superficial Vaser liposuction method and removal of the fatty tissue with a limited incision size.

What Does Vaser Stand For?

Vaser stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy of Resonance; this refers to the device used during the procedure to liquify fat cells before they are removed. The surgeon also uses tumescent fluid, which sedates the area and breaks fat down further. Once the fat is broken down, the surgeon can remove it through suction.

Why Should I Choose Dr Lanzer?

Dr Lanzer has a lot of experience with Vaser High-Definition Liposuction. He was one of the first Australian surgeons to travel abroad and train in the latest Vaser Hi Def Liposculpture methods. Based on his training and more than 20,000 executed liposuction procedures, Dr Lanzer has refined his technique and delivered some amazing results at his High Definition Liposuction Melbourne and Sydney clinics.

How Long Does The Treatment Take?

A Vaser procedure usually does not take that long. The procedure can take from one hour to several hours, depending on what area of the body that needs to be treated. The treatment can also take a little longer if more than one area is targeted with Vaser; e.g. love handles, abdomen and arms.

The procedure can be executed under local anaesthetic or general anaesthetic, although Dr Lanzer usually prefers to execute the procedure with a local anaesthetic. If a larger amount of fat needs to be removed, he might still choose a general anaesthetic.

How Much Fat Can Be Removed With Vaser Lipo?

Most patients who obtain Vaser liposuction are on their target weight, and only require the procedure to obtain a more athletic appearance. Therefore, the amount of fat removed during Vaser is quite minimal compared to more traditional liposuction techniques. For most liposuction procedures, the cosmetic surgeon can safely remove five litres of fat.

Is Vaser Lipo Permanent?

The results obtained from a Vaser liposuction are permanent, but the patient must be willing to maintain a healthy lifestyle after their procedure. If the patient cannot maintain a healthy weight after their treatment, removed fat could always return. Therefore, it is vital for patients to keep a close eye on their weight after their procedure.

Does Vaser Hurt?

Patients will not experience any pain during the procedure, since the treatment is executed under a local anaesthetic. However, patients may experience some discomfort after their procedure. These symptoms can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

What Do I Need To Consider After The Procedure?

Once the procedure has been executed, you will have to take it easy for a while. It is recommended to take at least 12 hours of rest and avoid straining activities for at least two to three weeks. The results will be visible instantly but will continue to improve as the body starts healing.

Could I Encounter Complications After The Procedure?

Every procedure is always connected to risks; however, these risks are kept to an absolute minimum at the Dr Lanzer clinic. With Vaser there is not a lot of chance of complications, simply because antiseptic tumescent fluid is used during the procedure.

Most patients will encounter some minor bruising and swelling after the procedure, although Dr Lanzer and his team try to keep this to an absolute minimum. Most patients are given medication to keep discomfort at a minimum and must wear a tight garment for a short period of time, giving the wound some time to heal and the body to recover.

Can I View Some Examples Of Vaser Liposuction?

On the Dr Lanzer Clinic website, patients can find photographs of Vaser liposuction. These photographs were obtained from patients who had their treatment at the Dr Lanzer Clinic.

All photographs represent one person’s experience, and results may vary for each patient. All photographs are of actual patients of Dr Lanzer. The visible change in these photographs has occurred because of the procedure(s) undertaken. The best results are obtained when the procedure is combined with a balanced diet and exercise.

Some before and after photos shown are not exact, in that they vary in light, contrast, clothing, background, distance from camera, hairstyle and make-up.

While most patients are familiar with standard liposuction procedures, not all patients are familiar with Vaser liposuction and how this procedure is executed. As mentioned on this page earlier, Vaser liposuction can be used to target specific fat deposits on the body of a patient, subsequently creating a more desirable athletic appearance for the patient in question.

However, Vaser liposuction is still a surgical procedure, so it is still important for patients to know the inner workings of Vaser liposuction and the risks accompanying it. Information regarding the Vaser liposuction procedure will be provided by our clinic during a consultation with Dr Lanzer, but some information is also available on the website, so patients can read through the information before their initial appointment at our clinic.

Patients must also be familiar with the aftercare in relation to their liposuction procedure; this is information that is also provided by the clinic who executes the procedure. Still, it is advised for patients to be familiar with the care after a liposuction procedure before they have Vaser liposuction done, since this enables them to prepare fully and take the appropriate time off work.

When you come in for the procedure, it is also advised to have someone there to drive you home and stay with you, since some patients may feel disorientated afterwards. Do you have more questions about the procedure or the aftercare? Contact the Dr Lanzer Clinic for more information or refer to one of the many information pages on the Dr Lanzer website.
