Liposuction & Vaser Lipo
Liposuction & Vaser Lipo
For patients trying to remove stubborn areas of fat, Linia offers liposuction and liposculpture procedures. Using the latest techniques, excess fat cells can be removed from almost any part of the face or body to improve the tone of the skin giving an overall slimmer look. Multiple areas can be treated at one time with the most popular areas for Liposculpture being the stomach, thighs, buttocks, chin and male chest.
The Soft Liposculpture Procedure
At Linia we use our special technique of Soft Liposculpture when multi-layered fat removal is achieved by using fat loosening solutions. This reduces the bruising and speeds the recovery. Following the removal of fat, deep massage is performed. This procedure is called “Liporedistribution”. This reduces the risk of lumpiness and enhances the resolution of swelling. Superficial liposuction is performed using special thin cannulas to help skin tightening and achieve a firmer skin tone.
The Vaser Liposuction Procedure
Vaser (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) Lipo is a revolutionary new technique used for fat removal and contouring areas of the body. The advantage of Vaser Lipo technology is that it allows the extraction of bodily fat but leaves other connective tissues intact, which gives much smoother end results, with less bruising. The system has a range of purposefully designed probes and precision cannulae that can be used to treat different areas of fat, thus meaning smaller delicate areas can be treated effectively as well as larger bulky areas.
Will my consultation be with a surgeon?
All consultations take place with a surgeon. We believe that only a surgeon can help and advise you on the best procedure to achieve the results you would like.
During your initial consultation, we will ask you about the results you are looking for and explain the procedure so that you understand every stage of the process. The most important thing is that you feel completely at ease in our care and fully aware of the procedure and the resulting enhancement.
Are your consultations free?
All of our consultations are free with no obligation. You will be provided with advice and information relevant to achieve the results you desire.
What will happen after the operation?
Your surgeon will visit you once you have recovered to check that all is well. Then the nurse will help you to put on a snug-fitting pressure garment over the treated area/s to provide support and reduce swelling. You will usually be discharged the same day, although occasionally an overnight stay may be recommended if you have had multiple areas treated. On leaving you will be given medication and post-operative instructions along with appropriate telephone numbers in case you need to contact us at any time.
You will experience some pain and discomfort in the first few days after the operation, and particularly once the effects of the anaesthetic have started to wear off. This can be controlled with regular medication which we will provide. You may also experience some pinkish fluid discharge from the incision sites for 2-3 days: this is normal and the dressings will absorb it.
The pressure garment needs to be worn continuously, day and night, for the next 2 weeks, though you can take it off to wash or shower. For the next 6 weeks the garment is to be worn “most of the time”. Sometimes you may “feel” or “imagine” yourself to be bigger than you were before surgery! Again, this is normal and is entirely due to post-operative swelling and fluid retention which will decrease.
The areas treated will remain sore and tender and you are likely to feel tired and stiff so although it is possible for you to return to work soon after, we would recommend that you take a few days off work if at all possible.
By the second week you should be feeling less discomfort and the bruising should be reduced. You will see the surgeon for a check-up around 7-10 days after the operation. She will remove any stitches which have not dissolved and your dressings will be removed.
Your surgeon will see you again, usually 8-10 weeks afterwards for a full post-operative consultation. By now you will be noticing visible results and the small scars will be fading. Lumpiness and numbness are likely to persist for several months. We normally advise you not to expect to see the full results for anything up to 6-9 months.
