At La Belle Forme, you can be sure that you will receive the best treatments available for the best value for money. That is why we are excited to offer you a new procedure that allows us to gently remove unwanted fat from thighs, hips, abdomens, chests, love handles, knees, backs, arms, chins and just about any other body part you can imagine. With Vaser® Lipo, it is now easier than ever to reduce those stubborn spots that just will not respond to diet and exercise.
Why is Vaser® Also Called Liposelection? Vaser® Lipo, also known as LipoSelection, is an advanced body contouring procedure that uses gentle ultrasonic energy to selectively remove unwanted body fat. An alternative to the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction, Vaser® Lipo preserves important tissues like nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue to promote smooth results and fast recovery.
How Does it Work? Fatty tissue consists primarily of adipose (fat) cells, but also contains other important tissues. With Vaser® liposuction, sound waves break up fat for removal while leaving nerves, blood vessels and other connective tissue relatively intact. The Vaser® liquifies the fat which is released out of the fat cells. Once liquefied, fat is easily removed with minimal disturbance to important structures to minimise recovery and maximise results. We perform gentle suction of the released fat to recontour
What is Vaser® Lipo? How Does it Differ From Traditional Liposuction? Vaser® Lipo is an advanced body contouring procedure that selectively removes unwanted body fat. An alternative to the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction, Vaser® Lipo uses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology designed to gently reshape your body. What distinguishes the Vaser® Lipo procedure is its ability to differentiate targeted fat from other important tissues – such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. Innovative Vaser® technology breaks up fat while preserving these other important tissues to promote smooth results and rapid healing.
How Does Vaser® Lipo Work? First, the area to be reshaped is filled with a tumescent saline solution that helps numb the site and shrink the blood vessels (to minimise blood loss and reduce bruising). This solution wets and fills the area to be treated, making it easier to break up fatty tissue with the Vaser® Lipo System’s ultrasound energy. Then a small probe transmits sound energy to break up (liquefy) fat on contact while preserving other important tissues. Finally, the liquefied fat is removed through a gentle suction process designed to minimise trauma to surrounding tissue structures such as nerves, blood vessels and other connective tissues.
What Body Areas Can Be Treated With Vaser® Lipo? Doctors have experienced great success in treating all of the following areas: abdomen, thighs, knees, ankles, calves, buttocks, hips, back, arms, male and female breasts, love handles, chin, face and just about any other body part you need treated.
How Much Fat Can Be Taken? Can You Treat Multiple Areas at Once? Vaser® Lipo allows physicians to treat multiple body areas at one time. A doctor will be able to give you a better idea of what is right for you and how much fat will be taken out during your procedure. Bear in mind that this procedure is not intended as a weight loss solution. The goal is to create a slimmer silhouette. You may not notice a significant amount of weight loss, but you should be pleased with your slimmer new shape.
Where is Vaser® Lipo Performed? Vaser® Lipo is performed in a clean or sterile environment. Some possible options are in a doctor’s office, an outpatient surgery center or a hospital. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia (awake), IV sedation, or general anesthesia. You and your physician will decide the best type of treatment for you.
How Soon Will I See My Results? What is the Recovery Time? This varies with the extensiveness of the procedure—the amount of fat removed, the number of areas treated, and so on. Many patients report that they see results immediately after the procedure with the final result at around 3 to 6 months. It is important that you establish realistic expectations through discussion with your doctor.
How Much Does the Treatment Cost? Vaser® Lipo is an advanced procedure and without an in-person consultation and evaluation of the areas to be treated, it is impossible to provide an accurate estimate for the procedure. Our prices range from £1250 to just under £4000, depending on the number of areas we treat. Most people pay around £2-3000.
