What is VAHDL?
VASER is ultrasound-assisted liposuction that selectively breaks down fat, sparing blood vessels, nerves and other important structures. This results in less bruising, pain and swelling compared to conventional liposuction. VASER also stimulates skin tightening, which further contours the body when combined with advanced surgical techniques.
VAHDL uses specialised VASER techniques and surgical instruments to create athletic, toned bodies, so six-pack abs in men and pencil-thin waists in women are now possible.
What are the risks?
The risks of VASER and VAHDL are similar to conventional liposuction. Because VASER selectively removes fat, blood loss is less than tradition methods, making it safer. On the other hand, VAHDL requires more time and precision.
Who would be best suited for VAHDL?
VASER is suitable for anyone who is fit for surgery and wishes to remove fat from the face or body. VAHDL is suitable for motivated individuals who seek athletic-looking bodies.
Where can VASER/VAHDL be used?
Commonly VASERed areas include the tummy, hips, buttocks, thighs, calves, back, arms, face and neck — any place where there are some extra inches that need removing. VAHDL is more commonly performed for defining the abdomen, chest, buttocks and arms.
Does VASER/VAHDL take place under local or general anaesthesia?
The procedure can be performed under local or general anaesthesia.
How long does the procedure take?
Depending on the areas treated, the procedure usually takes two to four hours.
Is the result permanent?
The result is permanent if a healthy, balanced lifestyle is maintained.
What is the recovery time?
Patients usually return to work within two to three days.
