Liposelection

Lipo Selection™ only by VASER® is an exciting revolutionary procedure for body reshaping which targets just the fat cells you want removed. It uses the latest technology to gently dissolve fat cells and remove fat in your thighs, hips, abdomen, love handles, knees, back, arms, neck and chin.

Note: this procedure is only available in London.

Why is Liposelection so different to liposuction?

Lipo Selection™ is the latest generation of ultrasonic assisted systems and the most advanced approach to fat removal available today. It is able to differentiate fatty tissue from tissues such as nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue that should be left largely undisturbed, yielding exceptional shapelier, smoother results and promoting faster recovery. With its unique patented technology, Lipo Selection™ by VASER liquefies and then removes fat, which is why it can be gentler, more effective, and provide faster, more predictable results.

What will happen during surgery?

The operation will take anywhere from 1 to 3 hours depending upon the amount of fat to be removed. Your procedure will be performed under Local Anaesthetic with Sedation. During the procedure, the area to be treated is filled with a special saline solution that helps numb the site and shrinks blood vessels to minimize blood loss and reduce bruising. This solution makes the fat cells easier to liquefy with the VASER System. Small probes transmit sound energy which dissolves fat cells, leaving other important tissues undisturbed. Then, a gentle suction and massage of the treated site removes the fat quickly and easily. The small incisions through which the saline solution is introduced will heal quickly.

Recovery after a Liposuction Procedure

What will happen in the recovery period?

You should expect to feel some soreness; this will last about a week. Other than the slight discomfort, you should be able to resume most of your normal activities immediately. After the operation you will need to wear a special garment for one week. This garment must be worn for 24 hours a day for 7 days, after a week you return to the clinic to see the surgeon to have your bandages and sutures removed.

What is the recovery time from Liposelection surgery?

The recovery varies with the extensiveness of the procedure, however, most patients return to normal activities within days as compared with the weeks normally anticipated with other fat removal systems.
