How Much Fat Can Be Taken Out with Vaser Liposuction?
The amount of fat removed during a Vaser lipo procedure, which could enhance the male athletic appearance, varies from patient to patient. However, the fat removal per procedure is limited to avoid complications and usually translates to no more than 3 litres of fat or 4% of your body weight.
Now we have established the amount of fat that could be removed to enhance the male athletic appearance, let us take a closer look at the Vaser liposuction procedure itself. To find out how Vaser is executed, and how it enhances the male athletic appearance, please read our information below.
How Does Vaser Liposuction Enhance the Male Athletic Appearance?
Vaser liposuction can enhance the male athletic appearance by removing stubborn fat deposits from strategic locations in the treatment area. Because of the nature of Vaser liposuction, patients often obtain the procedure when they are not able to get rid of stubborn fat deposits despite a rigorous exercise routine and a healthy diet.
How Is Vaser Lipo Executed?
Before fat is removed during Vaser lipo, the surgeon must use a saline solution to break down the fat. The saline solution is also combined with a local anaesthetic, which enables the surgeon to sedate the treatment area and break down the fat at the same time. The special solution also has an additional benefit, since it shrinks the blood vessels to reduce bleeding and bruising.
To get the special solution into the treatment area, the surgeon will make several small incisions on the treatment area. Through these incisions, the surgeon can inject the saline solution and let it work on the fat that needs to be removed from the treatment area. Once the solution kicks in, the fat will be easier to break down.
Once the solution has been added to the treatment area, the surgeon will also use Vaser ultrasound to break down the fat further. Vaser ultrasound emits a special type of sound energy, which breaks down and emulsifies the fatty tissue upon contact. However, important surrounding tissues remain intact; this allows the surgeon greater precision where fat removal is concerned.
In addition to the special Vaser ultrasound device, cosmetic surgeons can use other special devices to break down and emulsify the fat before it is removed; this includes devices such as LaserLipo, SmartLipo and the Water Jet. Therefore, the tool used to liquefy the fat before removal will be subject to the preferred technique of your cosmetic surgeon.
When the fat has been liquefied properly, the surgeon can remove it by inserting small cannulas into the treatment area. Small cannulas are little tubes, through which the fat will be removed from the body. Of course, these small cannulas require some force on the other side to remove the liquefied fat. To provide this force, the surgeon will connect the cannulas through a special vacuum machine, which will remove the fat through a gentle suction process.

Could I Benefit from Vaser Lipo?
This question is best answered by a licenced cosmetic surgeon, since patients need to meet certain medical criteria to be eligible for the procedure. In general, Vaser lipo is a suitable treatment for patients who have tried to lose stubborn fats through diet and exercise, but have been unable to do so. This also means that most patients are on or around their target weight, but still struggle with persistent fats despite living a healthy lifestyle.
The results obtained from Vaser lipo could be of a more long term nature, but are subject on the lifestyle of the patient. For example, if the patient does not live a healthy lifestyle after their procedure and gains a considerable amount of weight, persistent fats could return.
What Areas of the Body Could Be Treated with Vaser Lipo?
Vaser lipo is usually implemented on parts of the body that are prone to store fat. Therefore, common areas that are treated with Vaser lipo include the abdomen, thighs, knees, buttocks, hips, back, arms, male breast area, chin and neck.
Naturally, Vaser lipo is not reserved for male patients alone, because female patients can acquire this treatment to obtain a more athletic physique as well. So, to find out if this treatment is a good option for you, please book a consultation with an experienced cosmetic surgeon.
Does Vaser Lipo Have Any Side-Effects?
The side-effects of lipo treatments tend to be similar, despite the technique used by the surgeon. However, the severity of side-effects can be subject to the technique used by the cosmetic surgeon and the patient himself.
Common side-effects experienced after Vaser lipo is pain, general discomfort, swelling and bruising. Because of these side-effects, it is advised to take some time off work and give your body the time it needs to heal and recover. Patients should also have someone to drive them home right after their procedure, since most patients can experience some side-effects from the anaesthetic as well.
Your cosmetic surgery clinic will provide you with the information you will need during your recovery; this includes the use of compression garments, medications and useful tips to speed up your recovery.
Will I Have Loose Skin After Vaser?
Patients are thoroughly evaluated before their Vaser lipo procedure. If there is a chance of sagging skin, your surgeon will mention this to you before the procedure takes place, and give you additional options to avoid this loose skin.
If the patient is in danger to have loose skin after the procedure, Vaser lipo could be combined with a tummy tuck. Of course, most patients who have Vaser liposuction have reasonable elastic skin, which usually snaps back after the procedure.
