For many of us, January is a time of reflection and resolutions and often we’re focused on getting healthy and achieving the body we’ve always wanted. Yet, studies have shown that approximately 80% of New Year’s resolutions fail so it’s no surprise that searches for body contouring procedures such as liposuction or abdominoplasty go up in the first few months of the year.
Vaser liposuction uses ultrasound energy to break down the fat before it is suctioned out, meaning it’s a highly effective method to remove fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissues. London Vaser expert Mr Michael Mouzakis will give you comprehensive advice on the recovery process such as wearing compression garments and when you can return to exercise, but maximising your Vaser results is often due to the decisions you make pre-procedure.
TIP #1: understand the limitations of the Vaser procedure
To maximise your Vaser results, it’s essential that patients realise that Vaser liposuction is not a quick fix and it’s not a weight loss procedure. It’s best suited to men and women that are at or near their ideal body weight but wish to eradicate stubborn pockets of fat to achieve a more contoured physique.
Patients that are further away from their end goal will see a significant improvement in their shape but won’t achieve the dramatic body sculpting results that Vaser can achieve.
Being committed to a healthy diet and exercise routine prior to your procedure is also key to maximising your results and can determine which Vaser procedure you’re suitable for.
TIP #2: choose the right Vaser procedure
Vaser 4D Hi-Def and Mid Def are more advanced forms of Vaser liposuction that allow specially trained surgeons to reveal muscular definition rather than just remove excess fat. The thin layer of fat surrounding the muscular structures is sculpted out to achieve a ‘shredded’ or ‘ripped’ appearance.
Vaser 4D Hi-Def is best suited to very athletic men and women who are dedicated to a programme of nutrition and exercise which allows them to maintain their results.
Vaser Mid Def and Vaser liposuction require a less intense maintenance programme and Mr Michael Mouzakis will discuss your aims and current lifestyle in your consultation to ensure that you’re choosing the appropriate Vaser procedure.
TIP #3: choose the right surgeon
In order to maximise your Vaser results, it’s critical that you choose a surgeon that possesses expert knowledge of both anatomy and surgical technique. Highly experienced plastic surgeon and body contouring expert Alfredo Hoyos developed the Hi Def technique and Mr Michael Mouzakis recently completed his Total Definer course. The training covered the position of superficial fat, the concavities and convexities of every single muscle structure and the techniques required to sculpt and contour.
