VASER Liposuction in Bangkok at KKC Clinic

VASER Liposuction

Gone are the days when liposuction was synonymous with discomfort and lengthy recovery. At KKC Clinic in Bangkok, we use the latest breakthrough in cosmetic surgery – VASER Liposuction. Originating from the USA, this innovative technique has revolutionized fat removal and body contouring, ensuring safety, minimal discomfort, and effective results.

What is VASER Liposuction?

VASER Liposuction sets itself apart from traditional liposuction techniques through its use of innovative ultrasound technology. This method, known as Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance (VASER), selectively targets fat cells while preserving surrounding tissues.

The core of VASER Liposuction technology revolves around its ultrasound capability. The ultrasound waves are tuned to specifically target fat cells, causing them to emulsify or liquefy. This liquefaction of fat cells is a crucial aspect of VASER technology, as it enables the removal of fat more efficiently and with less force than traditional liposuction methods. The use of ultrasound also contributes to less bruising and trauma to the body, facilitating a quicker and smoother recovery process.

Benefits of VASER liposuction

How Does VASER Liposuction Differ from Traditional Liposuction?

The primary distinction between VASER and traditional liposuction lies in the approach to fat removal. Traditional liposuction relies on physical manipulation to break down fat cells, which can be more traumatic to the surrounding tissues. In contrast, VASER Liposuction utilizes ultrasound waves to gently and precisely break down fat cells. This ultrasonic energy is emitted through a small probe, causing the fat cells to vibrate and loosen, making them easier to remove. This targeted approach allows for a more controlled and gentle extraction of fat.

Targeted Treatment Areas for VASER Liposuction

VASER Liposuction is versatile and can be used on various body parts, including:

Areas of the body where VASER Liposuction can be used
  • Abdomen: The abdomen is a common target for VASER Liposuction. Ideal for addressing resistant fat, this method achieves a contoured, smoother abdominal area.
  • Arms: Particularly beneficial for upper arms, this technique assists in reducing excess fat, resulting in a more toned arm appearance.
  • Thighs: Effective for both inner and outer thighs, VASER Liposuction helps reduce unwanted fat, improving leg contour and balance.
  • Buttocks: Targeting the buttocks, the procedure sculpts and shapes this area, enhancing overall appearance and proportion.
  • Chin and Neck: VASER Liposuction refines the chin and neck area, effectively reducing a double chin and enhancing the jawline for a defined facial profile.

Ideal Candidates for VASER Liposuction

VASER Liposuction is perfect for those struggling with stubborn fat that resists diet and exercise. The ideal candidate is someone who is in overall good health and near their ideal body weight but struggles with localized fat deposits that do not respond to diet and exercise. This procedure is not a weight loss solution; instead, it’s aimed at contouring and reshaping specific areas of the body.

VASER Liposuction Procedure at KKC Clinic

At KKC Clinic, our approach to VASER Liposuction is rooted in a commitment to excellence and patient safety. This procedure is a meticulous process that combines advanced technology with our team’s surgical expertise.

Pre-liposuction procedure

Step 1: Pre-Procedure Consultation and Planning

Before the VASER Liposuction procedure, every patient undergoes a thorough consultation. During this stage, our surgeons discuss your aesthetic goals, evaluate your health status, and determine the suitability of the procedure for the specific areas to be treated. This personalized planning ensures that the procedure meets your expectations and body type.

Step 2: Preparation and Anesthesia

You’ll be prepared for the procedure on the day of the surgery. This involves marking the targeted areas and administering local anesthesia.

Step 3: Making the Incisions

Small incisions are made in the targeted areas. These incisions are typically just a few millimeters long, allowing for the insertion of the VASER probe.

Step 4: Application of Ultrasound Technology

A small probe is inserted through the incisions, emitting ultrasound waves. These waves specifically target and break down the fat cells, leaving the surrounding tissues relatively undisturbed.

How VASER Liposuction works

Step 5: Emulsification of Fat Cells

The ultrasound waves cause the fat cells to emulsify, turning them into a liquid form. This process is key to the effectiveness of VASER Liposuction, as it allows for easier and more precise removal of fat.

Step 6: Removal of Liquefied Fat

Once the fat cells are emulsified, a cannula is used to gently suction out the liquefied fat. This part of the procedure is performed carefully to ensure even removal and contouring.

Step 7: Closing the Incisions

After the fat removal, the incisions are closed. These small incisions usually heal quickly and are often barely noticeable once fully healed.

Step 8: Immediate Postoperative Care

Our team provides comprehensive postoperative instructions and support to ensure a smooth and safe recovery.

Preparing for VASER Liposuction

Preparing for your VASER Liposuction at KKC Clinic involves a few key steps to ensure your safety and the best possible results. It starts with a thorough medical evaluation to assess your suitability for the procedure. You’ll need to adjust or stop certain medications, particularly those increasing bleeding risks, as advised by your doctor.

Smoking cessation is crucial at least two weeks before surgery, as smoking can hinder healing and elevate complication risks. A balanced diet and proper hydration in the days leading up to your surgery are also important for your overall well-being and recovery.

Understanding the procedure is essential. Make sure to discuss any concerns with your surgeon and understand the expected outcomes and recovery process. It’s normal to feel anxious; addressing these feelings beforehand is important for your mental readiness.

Finally, arrange for someone to drive you home and assist you after the surgery. A final preoperative consultation at KKC Clinic will ensure you are fully prepared for the procedure.

Risks and Side Effects

Like any surgical procedure, VASER Liposuction carries certain risks and side effects, which are extensively discussed during the consultation. These may include bruising, swelling, and discomfort in the treated areas. However, due to the precision of the technique, these side effects are typically minimal and short-lived. Our team takes every precaution to ensure a smooth and safe procedure.

Post-Procedure Expectations

After your VASER Liposuction at KKC Clinic, the initial recovery phase is crucial for ensuring optimal results and comfort. In the days following the procedure, you will likely experience some swelling and bruising in the treated areas. This is a normal response of your body to the surgery and these symptoms generally lessen significantly within the first week.

During this period, it is important to wear a compression garment as it aids in reducing swelling and helps your body adapt to its new contours. The duration for wearing this garment varies but is typically around 3 to 6 weeks.

VASER liposuction post care instructions

Your daily activities will need to be adjusted post-surgery. We advise against engaging in strenuous activities or heavy lifting for at least 2 to 4 weeks. However, light walking is encouraged to promote circulation and aid in your recovery.

Taking care of the incision sites is also essential. You will be instructed on how to keep these areas clean and dry, and you may need to apply topical antibiotics as directed.

Follow-up appointments are a critical component of your postoperative care. These visits allow our surgeons to assess your healing and address any concerns you may have. They are an opportunity for us to ensure that your recovery is on track.

The results of VASER Liposuction, while partly visible immediately, will become more pronounced as the swelling subsides. This can take several weeks to a few months. It’s important to have patience and maintain realistic expectations during this period.

Our commitment at KKC Clinic is to provide continuous support and guidance, ensuring a comfortable recovery and satisfaction with your VASER Liposuction results.
