Before heading into further detail about both Vaser Liposculpture and Vaser Hi Def Liposculpture, we would like to touch on four important concepts:
- What is the difference between “Liposuction” and “Liposculpture”
- What is Vaser Liposculpture and why do we consider it the best technique available for body sculpting.
- What is the difference between Vaser Liposculpture and Vaser Hi-Def Liposculpture and which system is the best fit for you.
- Dr Goldman only performs Vaser procedures in hospital under full general anaesthetic with all the required safety monitoring as he believes your safety is paramount . This does increase costs however.
What Is The Difference Between “Liposuction” and “Liposculpture”?
In the professional world of cosmetic surgery, “Liposuction” and “Liposculpture” are often used interchangeably. We don’t strictly agree with this as we see Liposculpture as a more advanced technique than Liposuction.
The term “Liposculpture” first appeared in 1991 and was described as a technique that “shapes the body by removing fat cells in areas where there is excess fat and/or adding fat cells to areas where additional padding is desired”. This technique is far more advanced than standard liposuction and is highly dependent on the skill and artistic eye of the Cosmetic Surgeon. Knowing what fat to remove and what fat cells to leave makes all the difference in the final result
Because Dr Goldman exclusively uses the Vaser system for all of his Liposuction/Liposculpture cases, and because the Vaser system offers advanced sculpting techniques in the removal of pockets of excess fat from the body, we generally prefer to use the term “Liposculpture” over “Liposuction”.
What Is Vaser Liposculpture (Liposuction) And Why Do We Consider It The Best Technique Available For Body Sculpting?
Vaser Liposculpture is an advanced body contouring procedure that selectively removes unwanted body fat. An alternative to the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction, Vaser Liposculpture uses state of the art ultrasound technology designed to gently reshape your body. What distinguishes Vaser Liposculpture is its ability to differentiate targeted fat from other important tissues – such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissues. Innovative Vaser technology breaks up fat while preserving these other important tissues, which promotes smooth results and rapid healing.
What Is The Difference Between Vaser Liposculpture (Liposuction) And Vaser Hi-Def Liposculpture?
Both Vaser Liposculpture and Vaser Hi-Def Liposculpture use the latest ultrasound technology to selectively break down fat deposits from easier removal. Vaser Hi-Def however is the latest breakthrough from Vaser. It is a body sculpting technique developed by plastic surgeons for men and women who desire a more sculpted, muscular appearance. The technique focuses on the precise removal of superficial and deep fat around muscle groups in order to enhance the visibility of the underlying musculature.
From this, Vaser Hi-Def is designed to be a sculpting procedure rather than a debulking technique. The procedure is intended for generally fit men and women who have good muscle tone without excessive amounts of fat or excess skin. The typical patient maintains a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise, but is unable to achieve the desired definition.
Vaser Liposculpture (as opposed to Vaser Hi-Def) is the best option for men and women who are frustrated by the resistance of certain body areas to diet and exercise. If you are healthy and seeking a fast, low-pain solution to losing stubborn fat deposits, the Vaser Liposculpture technique is likely to prove the best solution. Therefore Vaser Liposculpture is intended for men and women who are seeking the removal of bulkier, stubborn fat deposits, rather than focusing in on the precise removal of smaller amounts of fat to enhance muscular visibility.
Of course if you are in any way unsure as to which Vaser Liposculpture (Liposuction) technique is best suited for you, Dr Goldman will assist you at your consultation in defining the best solution so that you can fulfill your sculpting aspirations.
