VASER Mid Definition Liposuction
A woman’s body is shaped different to men. Features flowing curves and collects shadows in vertical rather than horizontal fashion. At the same time, displaying a feminine hourglass silhouette. VASER Mid-Def liposculpting is an advanced form of liposuction that deliberately removes fat from specific areas of the abdomen and flanks while leaving a padding layer of fat over well defined muscles to highlight and contour a more athletic physique. VASER Mid-Def is an artistic sculpting procedure working not only in the deep layer of fat, but also in selected pre-determined superficial layer, where the body sculpting truly takes place. The best candidate is a patient who works out at the gym, and one who eats healthy and maintains an active lifestyle. VASER MidDef candidates should be very close to their goal weight, but may find they just can’t get quite as lean as they would like to. Men and women who come to Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin for VASER Mid-Def liposuction want something more appealing than just removal of excess fat. They have little extra fat carried around difficult to shift areas, usually the abdomen and flanks. They feel fit, but do not have the body-contour they deserve.
Mid-Def vs Hi-Def Liposuction
Hi-Def liposuction aims to remove and sculpt around vertical and horizontal muscles. It aims to yield sculpted definition muscle edges. It enhances gender identity, curved for a feminine body and straight flanks for a masculine physique. The Mid-Def VASER liposculpting emphasises pre-determined softer lines than seen in HiDef. It reveals a natural well balanced body with gender enhancing lateral curves, worthy of showing off a fit rather than muscular figure. VASER Mid-Definition liposuction takes body sculpting to different level, engaging body sculpting expertise with body art. Its made feasible by utilising ultrasound energy to remove fat in a way that leaves underlying muscles mystically revealed. During the process we selectively remove unwanted pockets of fat while leaving behind areas enhancing visual appeal. VASER Lipo specifically targets pockets of fat overlying muscle groups such as the abdomen, waistline, and flanks. VASER Mid-Def Liposuction is ideal in those patients who only have small amounts of fat to be removed for a beautiful body. VASER uses ultrasonic energy to disrupt fat cell and connective tissue in a process called deep layer cavitation. The VASER’s high frequency resonance disrupts the “unwanted deposits” causing fat cells to fall off while leaving this important connective tissue intact.
Suitability for Mid-Def VASER
Depending on the fat removal amount, the end result of Vaser Liposuction is a slimmer, more contoured figure.
Vaser Mid-Definition Liposuction goes one step further than flat debulking (which is beautiful in its own accord) in the body contouring and sculpting process. The liposuction procedure is carried with more precision removing pre-determined fat deposits from around the chosen muscle groups revealing an athletic outline.
The mid definition liposculpture procedure is best suited to women and men who have good skin integrity and good core strength with a strong horizontal definition.
VASER Mid-Def Liposuction can be used to target stubborn fat cells in areas of the body including the tummy, love handles, flanks and bra-rolls.
Mid-Definition Liposuction Steps
During the procedure you are awake. We hydrate the treatment area with a physiological numbing solution. Ultrasound energy from the VASER device gently breaks up the fat loosening it up from the connective tissue. It changes it from firm “lard” consistency to a “smoothie” like texture. This change in consistency allows us to remove unwanted fat without the need for aggressive aspiration. The VASER separate fat lobules from nerves and blood vessels, leaving the surrounding tissue undisturbed for less bruising and swelling in the treated area.
VASER Mid-Def Liposuction is superior to traditional liposuction because to its ability to breakdown hard fat deposits first before suctioning them. With the fat cells loosened up we are able to selectively remove them from both deep as well as targeted superficial sub-dermal layers. Sculpting around muscle layers with precision and fineness. In essence, with Mid-Def Liposuction we move from debulking liposuction to remodelling and precision liposculpting. This is a crucial factor in the way Mid-Definition Liposuction sculpts the body and it doesn’t simply remove deep layers of fat.
By-product of the ultrasound energy transmitted by VASER is heat. When human tissue is subjected to heat it contracts in a predictable fashion. Contraction that causes tightening of the skin. Heat generated by the ultrasound energy is controllable. It is advantageous in promoting skin contraction in the recovery phase. It adds to that all important sculpted smooth and flowing contour.
Most commonly requested body sculpting procedures are the abdominals, flanks, love handles, and muffin tops. Athletic abs, obliques, lats are muscles that can be highlighted.
Athletic Figure Transformation
Mid Definition (Mid-Def) 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 toned fit looking body with hints of athletic definition. A defined body is 3 dimensional, collecting and reflecting 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 deposits of unwanted fat exposes natural athletic contours which were not noticeable before. It helps to create a more appealing defined look. Results of mid level muscle definition that no other lipo procedure can achieve. Natural looking compared with Hi-Def liposuction, which could be viewed as artificial. VASER Mid-Def provides a more athletic, muscular appearance. Well defined body contours complementing patient’s who already have moderate fat deposits.
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, we will dress you in a custom fitted compression garment. Wearing the compression garment is important to reduce swelling and prevent build-up of fluid.
The compression garment should not be taken off at all during the first two days after surgery. On the third day, you may remove the compression for your first shower, but it should be put right back on again within 30 minutes. You need to wear compression as near to 24-hours a day as possible for the first 4 weeks of recovery.
Although good VASER liposuction results are seen after six weeks post-op, your body will continue to heal for the next four to six months. A good diet, staying active, well hydrated, wearing your compression, and regular lymphatic massage MLD will help to expedite your recovery and ensure the best long-term results possible.

Swelling & Bruising
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 maximise 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 more.
