Liposuction

OVERVIEW

Liposuction is a surgical solution to remove local fat deposits in the specific areas on the body and face for a more defined and better-looking appearance. With cutting-edge aesthetic technology, Vaser liposuction successfully offers superior outcomes to traditional liposuction technology.

WHY LIPOSUCTION?

Despite staying healthy, some parts of the body of most people are still unbalanced with local fat deposits, resulting in unpleasant body and facial shapes. This is due to genetic reasons and the aging process which make exercising and being on diet unable to get rid of the local fat deposits (stubborn fat) people desire. Liposuction is very helpful in removing the stubborn fat for achieving a more defined, fascinating body and facial appearance that caters to desires of each individual. 

VASER LIPOSUCTION TECHNOLOGY

Vaser (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) is an advanced technology approved by USFDA and Thai FDA that delivers a safe liposuction solution with a very little chance of complications and less downtime.

The benefit of Vaser liposuction includes the ability to remove local fat deposits directly in specific areas by utilizing ultrasound technology. Compared to traditional liposuction, this technology is able to dissolve fat cells, enabling more effective removal of local fat deposits without impairing underlying tissues such as nerves, blood vessels, etc.. The heat derived from ultrasound technology also delivers the skin-tightening effect as well as offers fast recovery with the best possible aesthetic outcome with a reduced chance of uneven skin or skin rippling after liposuction.

However, liposuction is not designed with the purpose to lose weight, or replace regular exercise and dieting. After liposuction, patients are recommended to maintain routine exercise and control the diet regularly to attain the best long-lasting result.
