Many people suffer from stubborn fat in such areas as the abdomen, thighs, arms and even the back. For some, many people are trying to get rid of the problem. But when deciding on a fat removal procedure which option is best? Liposuction and VASER Liposuction offers two different variations of surgical fat reduction, as Mr Jag Chana explains.

The most well-known is the liposuction. Also known as liposculpture or suction-assisted lipectomy, it is a technical technique to remove unwanted fat deposits. Traditional liposuction offers visible results quickly, and provides the patient maintains a healthy diet and exercises, the fat should not return to the body.

VASER Liposuction offers similar results to traditional techniques but uses energy to liquefy the fat, making removal less invasive. During VASER Liposuction, transmitters are placed under the skin and fat cells are broken down prior to removal, allowing for a less invasive form of fat removal.

VASER liposuction removes unwanted fat without tissue trauma that often occurs in traditional liposuction treatment. VASER Liposuction harnesses the latest in ultrasound energy to effectively liquefy the stubborn fat, removing it in a gentler way. Due to the more specific nature of this type of fat removal, patients can often achieve more evenly and smoother results than those of traditional liposuction.

Both traditional surgical fat removal and VASER Liposuction offer excellent results but come with their own sets of risks that should be understood and used to help make an informed decision which option is right for you. Side effects of traditional liposuction include swelling, bruising, the chance of infection, and nerve damage that could end result in a change in skin sensation. VASER Liposuction also carries similar risks but does offer decreased chances of nerve damage and tissue trauma due to its gentler approach to removal of fat.

What option is right for you?

Weighing up the pros and cons of both options and deciding which treatment is most appropriate for your body and your lifestyle is important. If you require further advice on which fat removal option is right for you, then talking to a cosmetic professional that has extensive knowledge and experience with such treatments is vital. Mr Jag Chana is a plastic surgeon who specialises in plastic and reconstructive surgery as well as breast augmentation and is an expert of all forms of fat removal procedures.

On traditional liposuction, Mr Chana says:

“Traditional liposuction is a tested and proven solution to fat reduction and due to this, it’s hugely popular with patients looking for a solution to areas of fat resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction provides outstanding results which can be maintained long-term if patients take good care of their bodies.”

Mr Jag Chana is one of the first consultants in the country to invest in and provide VASER Liposuction to his patients. Of this revolutionary fat removal treatment, he says:

“I’ve seen a large increase in the number of patients enquiring in VASER in recent years, and I can definitely understand why many patients are opting for VASER Liposuction over other forms of fat removal. It offers many patients similar results but less tissue trauma, which is great for them as it makes a much more comfortable recovery process.”
