This liposuction is an ultra-sonic liposuction using the machine called the Vaser Liposelection.
This method is very much less traumatic and as a result there is preservation of the anatomical structures like the fibrous connections, vessels and nerves. The melted fat will be removed with minimal blood and there will be very minimal tissue bruising. The skin contours is also well preserved and hence will give a smooth regular surface unlike the traditional method where the excessive force used will cause very severe tissue and skin damages. This is a less painful, swelling and bruising, and hardly any bleeding which makes the recovery time faster as compared to the traditional liposuction method.
Vaser Liposelection can be used to remove any excess accumulated fat from the tummy, waist, “love-handle in the male”, thighs, hips, buttocks, arms, chest and back. For the male it is very good for removal of the gynaecomastia (unwanted male enlarged breasts) with just a puncture wound scar which will become hardly visible after a few months. It is use to help the male to attain the muscles “Pec” contours in the tummy if they exercise well.
Dr. Yeap use it for tummy tuck procedure where the tummy fat is removed and after the tightening of the dehisced muscle the patient with diligent discipline will be able to get a good hour-shape body contour. Part of the fat removed can be used to harvest fat for autologous fat grafting. This is to augment or build up deficient portions of the body – like the saggy buttocks or breasts.
In addition, Dr Yeap also performs the water jet liposuction where jets of water are used to dislodge the fat and then suck it out. It is a safe method with minimal trauma.
