VASER High Definition Liposuction
Whether due to lifestyle or predetermined genetics, we all experience certain areas on our body that do not seem to respond to diet or exercise. Men who come to Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin for HiDef liposuction have been working out hard at the gym. The have little extra fat carried around difficult to shift areas, usually the abdomen and chest. They feel fit, but do not have the body-shape they deserve after all this hard work.
Traditional liposuction can remove these areas of fat, but VASER High Definition liposuction takes it a step forward by utilizing ultrasound energy to remove fat in a way that leaves underlying muscles more defined. Selectively removing unwanted pockets of fat while leaving others behind is the art of reshaping your body and restoring a more athletic physique. VASER Lipo specifically targets pockets of fat overlying muscle groups such as the abdomen, chest, and arms. VASER High Definition Liposuction is ideal in those patients who only have small amounts of fat to be removed for a beautiful definition and contouring.
In the body, fat cells are stacked together in connective tissue scaffolding. VASER uses ultrasonic energy to disrupt fat cell and connective tissue in a process called cavitation. The VASER’s high frequency resonance disrupts the “scaffolding” causing the fat cells to fall off while leaving this important connective tissue intact.
During the procedure you are awake. The area to be treated is infused with a physiological numbing solution. Ultrasound energy from the VASER device gently breaks up the fat from the connective tissue, changing it from firm “lard” consistency to a liquified “oily” texture. This consistency change allows us to remove the unwanted fat without the need for aggressive aspiration. The fat is separated from the nerves and blood vessels, leaving the surrounding tissue undisturbed better healing, and less bruising and swelling in the treated area.
VASER hidef liposuction is superior to traditional liposuction due to its emulsification ability. With the fat cells loosened up we are able to remove them from the deep as well as the superficial and difficult to reach subdermal layers. In essence, we are moving from liposuction to finessing and precision liposculpture. This is a crucial factor in the way hi-def liposuction sculpts the body, instead of simply removing deep layers of fat.
Most commonly requested body sculpting procedures are the chest, arms, abdomen, and flanks. Six-pack, obliques, lats, pecs, biceps, triceps, and deltoids are all muscles that can be highlighted.
By-product of the ultrasound energy transmitted by VASER is heat. This heat is very advantageous in promoting skin contraction in the recovery phase, adding to that all important sculpted smooth contour.
High definition (HiDef) liposuction is an advanced liposculpting procedure that deliberately shapes the body by removing fat in problem areas while at the same time revealing and highlighting desired muscle groups to create subtle hints of athletic definition. A muscular body is 3 dimensional, composed of light and shadows. If traditional liposuction is like painting with a broad brush, VASER high-definition liposuction is more like finessing with a delicate brush. Removing small deposits of unwanted fat exposes natural muscular contours which were not noticeable before, helping to create a more ripped muscular look.
Results & Recovery
The recovery process is different for everyone. You should expect to take at least three days off from office-based work. If your work is physical, then a week off is ideal.
Immediately after surgery, you will be wearing a custom fitted compression garment. Wearing the compression garment is important in helping to reduce swelling and prevent build-up of fluid.
The compression garment should not be taken off at all for the first two days after surgery. After two days, you may remove the compression for your first shower, but it should be put right back on. You need to wear compression as near to 24-hours a day as possible for the first 4 weeks of recovery.
You can expect some swelling, bruising and discomfort for the first few days following surgery. It is very normal for the swelling to get little worse before starting to improve. Wearing your compression garment will help keep the swelling down. It is also expected to feel numbness in the treated areas. Sensation will return to normal over time.

We highly recommend working with a lymphatic massage therapist to help ensure the best possible outcome after surgery. This post-operative massage is valuable to maximize your results and will start on day three post op.
You will need to abstain from any strenuous activity for the first 2 weeks. Starting activities too soon after surgery may put you at risk for bleeding. You may begin to perform light exercise two weeks after your surgery and may gradually increase your activity as you tolerate.
Although your surgical results are best seen after six weeks post-op, your body will continue to heal for the next four to six months. A good diet, staying well hydrated, wearing your compression, and regular lymphatic massage will help to expedite your recovery and ensure the best long-term results possible.
