Ultrasound liposuction Vaser Lipo

What is Vaser Lipo?

Vaser Lipo is a modern liposuction procedure that uses ultrasound technology to break down fat cells in the body, sparing the surrounding cells and tissues as much as possible.

As a result, a precise removal of excess fat is achieved, allowing for much better body shaping.

At Derma-Act Vaser Lipo is done by Dr. Alexandros Lafchis.

Dr. Lafchis has been part of the Derma-Act clinic team since its inception, and a practicing surgeon at ViA Medica. He graduated from the Medical University in Sofia in 2006. In the period 2008 – 2014, he worked at the Plastic-Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Clinic of the Alexandrovska University Multiprofile Hospital for Active Treatment Ltd..
In 2014, he completed a specialization in plastic surgery and, from then on, he has been an assistant at the Burns and Plastic Surgery Clinic for adult patients at the Pirogov University Multiprofile Hospital for Active Treatment and Emergency Medicine Pirogov.
He is a member of the Bulgarian Association for Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, the Bulgarian Surgical Society, the European Burn Association (EBA) and a number of international associations. You can read more about Dr. Lafchis on his website HERE.

How does Vaser Lipowork?

VASER (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) is an ultrasound technology used to break down fat cells by sending ultrasound frequency waves to a specific area. The ultrasound waves emitted by the device liquefy the fat cells, after which liposuction techniques are applied to remove them.

What are the differences between traditional liposuction and Vaser Lipo?

With Vaser Lipo, unlike traditional liposuction methods, damage to surrounding tissues is minimized. This is due to the ultrasound waves that liquefy the fat and optimize its removal. This approach increases the precision of the procedure and makes fat easier to remove.

The specific targeting of fat cells also leads to a more precise end result, as the surgeon is able to emphasize certain muscles during the procedure.

Who is the procedure suitable for?

Vaser Lipo is a procedure suitable for both men and women who want to achieve body contouring, not lose weight.  The procedure aims to eliminate the fat accumulations, which are not affected by diets and exercise.

It is recommended that patients considering weight loss wait until they reach their desired weight before undergoing this procedure.

In which areas is Vaser Lipoused?

Vaser Lipo can be applied to the following areas – belly, love handles, thighs, ankles, calves, knees, arms, armpits, neck, buttocks.

How does the Vaser Lipoprocedure happen?

The procedure itself is performed in an operating room by a trained team of specialists. Full anesthesia is applied. At the beginning of the procedure, a thin probe is inserted into the fatty tissue in order to inject a specially prepared solution. The solution, on the one hand, “dilutes” the fatty tissue, and on the other, it acts as a medium in which the ultrasound targets only the fat cells.

After injecting the solution, the ultrasound probe is inserted into the desired area, deep into the fatty tissue. It moves through the solution-soaked tissue, with the plastic surgeon controlling its movements and depth. This causes the fat cells to liquefy.

Then, using a small tube (cannula) and a vacuum pump, the surgeon delicately “sucks” (aspirates) them.

After the procedure?

The duration of recovery after the procedure depends on the scope of the treatment. Most people return to their normal lifestyle after 7 to 14 days.

When is the final result noticeable?

The results of Vaser Lipo are visible almost instantly, and the final result – after about a month.

In order to maintain it, after the operation it is recommended to lead a healthy lifestyle through a diet and regular exercise.

It is important to emphasize that Vaser Lipo is not a weight loss procedure. Its purpose is to help remove fat cells from the body and emphasize its contour.

Before the procedure, the patient undergoes a mandatory examination and consultation with Dr. Lafchis at Derma-act. The follow-up examinations, the Vaser Lipo procedure and the restorative procedures are carried out at the clinic for plastic-restorative and aesthetic surgery ViA – Medica. If necessary, at Derma-act we can remove any surface scars in the treated area after the procedure.
