Want to be a few kilos lighter, a few inches lesser, but diets and exercise aren’t getting you the shape and physique you desire? Despair not; cosmetic surgery in the form of Liposuction is helping millions around the world to lose inches that prove to be stubborn.
Dr. Sunil Arora, plastic surgeon at RBH, offers hope. “Liposuction,” he says, “is a most commonly performed cosmetic surgery done to flatten any areas of the body that have excess fat. It is ideal for people who control their diet, exercise moderately, but have reached a plateau and cannot get rid of those last few troublesome areas.”
Liposuction removes fat from deposits beneath the skin using a hollow stainless steel tube with the assistance of a powerful vacuum. There are many Liposuction techniques available, but the latest, high-technology VASER ultrasound liposuction gives best results. It is a minimally invasive procedure, and an alternative to the harsh traditional liposuction, using ultrasound technology designed to gently reshape the body.
Vaser liposuction is a superior sculpting procedure that can significantly eradicate fat, unify the underlying muscle and improve muscle proportion. It is a revolutionary process that can target a specific segment of fat, eliminate it successfully from the body and redefine the shape of the body. Some of the areas where 4D body sculpting or Vaser lipo is extremely effective include the abdomen, chest, upper legs, upper arm, buttocks and the back area.
RBH has introduced Vaser Lipo in Rajasthan, Dr. Sunil Arora, Consultant Plastic Surgeon at RBH said that the procedure promotes smooth results, rapid healing and is definitely the safer alternative to the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction. There is minimal pain and bruising and, in fact, patients are able to go home hours after the procedure and resume normal activities.
This causes excellent shaping and contouring of the treated areas,” promised Dr. Arora. “Moreover, Vaser technology causes the skin to shrink very well, almost eliminating the sagging folds of skin seen previously with traditional liposuction.”
VASER Lipo has been exclusively available at the RBH since early last year. We have performed over 50 surgeries over different areas of the body. “It is a wonderful technology, and I have entirely stopped doing traditional Liposuction, since the results with VASER are superior and the patient is more comfortable and recovers in only a few days,” says Dr. Arora. “The procedure can take from one to five hours and be done under local or General Anaesthesia, depending on the areas to be treated and the amount of fat to be removed.”
The recovery period is also determined by this and varies from a few days to a week. What is also new and happily different with this procedure is that any weight gain or loss experienced after Vaser Lipo will be proportionately distributed over the entire body. “Once you have fat removed by Vaser, it is gone, and, assuming a healthy lifestyle of proper diet and exercise, it will not return or migrate,” said Dr Arora. “This procedure is not intended as a weight loss solution,” warned Dr Arora, “the goal here is to create a slimmer silhouette.” The Vaser Lipo system received FDA clearance in 2002. Over 70,000 procedures have been performed worldwide on men and women with no serious complications and Vaser Lipo has now become a trusted body contouring method preferred by physicians to traditional liposuction.
