Understanding VASER: its causes and effects
Often it happens that even after doing strict dieting and exercise you are still not able to get rid of that extra fat. Because sometimes these stringent diet and exercise, are not enough for you to get a perfect body. it happens commonly that you work hard to be in a good shape and shed off that undesired fat, but you don’t get any result.
The reason behind this is that both dieting and exercise won’t do anything If you have confined areas of fat deposition which are excessive and irregular in compared to the rest of your body. If you are also suffering from such condition and want to get rid of it, the last option which remains is to get help from Liposuction.
Liposuction, also known as lipo, is a kind of technique in cosmetic surgery that eliminates fat from your body and is also one of the most reliable and most famous cosmetic surgery.
During your counseling with a doctor for your liposuction surgery, the doctor will offer you many techniques to choose from that aid liposuction. These techniques include Suction-assisted liposuction (SAL), Tumescent liposuction, Power-assisted liposuction (PAL), VASER, Laser-assisted liposuction (LAL), Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL), etc.
I went for Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction. It emulsifies fat tissues in the particular area with the help of sound energy or ultrasonic waves. VASER Liposuction precisely targets fatty tissue, and it does not damage surrounding tissues. As every surgery has some side effects, VASER Liposuction also has a few side effects. let’s discuss them.
The most common side effect of VASER Liposuction is getting Burns
It can cause burns of second or third degree. Vaser only removes fatty cells and does not tighten the skin, that is why more work has to be done in the affected area after the VASER application.
VASER Liposuction can also cause discoloration of the skin, which can also increase the time. Although a local anesthetic is generally, you might feel some fatigue after the surgery.
Fat or blood clots may develop which can transfer to the lungs or brain, it might be fatal for the patient. Infections can also occur during any surgery as well as VASER. Liposuction methods include open draining, which can make patient sensitive to infection.
Other complications include Fluid Imbalance and Bruising. A large number of fat cells is removed in the liposuction surgery and simultaneously a large quantity of liquid is inserted in the body during the surgery, which can cause a fluid imbalance in the patients’ body.
This eventually can increase the level of fluid in lungs and can also affect the function of the kidney. Bruising is also very commonly occurring after the surgery and can take long time to heal completely.
When you will be recovering from the Liposuction surgery, dressings will be done and bandages will be applied to your surgical cuts made during the procedure, and you may be wrapped in an elastic bandage or a compression garment to reduce the swelling in the body and support your stomach as it heals following surgery. Sometimes, there is extra blood or fluid that get collected in the wound.
For draining that fluid out, small thin tubes are temporarily placed under the skin through a very short incision below the main incision, which leads out of the body to a small oval-shaped bulb. every time you discharge the bulb and before you plug it again, you are supposed to compress it to help drain the wound.
You should specifically follow the aftercare instructions with great care. You should keep the scars dry until the stitches are removed. You can take a shower with Luke-warm water but not a bath. It is essential that you don’t put any pressure on the incision scar for a few weeks after the surgery. Luckily, complications in the surgery are rare and the satisfaction rate is high.
The final outcome of the surgery may be obscured in starting. You will feel swelling and you will be unable to stand fully upright until internal healing is complete. But you will be standing tall and confident in your new slimmer and sleeker body profile in a week or two.
