What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is characterized by its simplicity and low recovery time; as aesthetic medicine developed, liposuction has become a simple non-surgical procedure, in which the intractable fat, which accumulates in certain areas of the body, is removed by a technique called “Vaser”; Liposuction is not specific to a particular area of the body, for it can be used to remove intractable fat from many areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs and neck.

Liposuction is the best solution for the person to get the ideal body that he/she dreams of and get rid of obesity, for the patient to be completely satisfied with his/her body after the operation.

Techniques Used in Liposuction

Vaser is the most famous and latest of the medical techniques used in liposuction. Vaser technology has made liposuction a simple and fast recovery process, as well as its effectiveness in removing a large amount of intractable fat.

Vaser Technology

Vaser technology is based on sound waves that break down fat accumulated in different areas of the body, where the fat is removed by a Cannula connected to the tube, which in turn sucks the fat. The Cannula is inserted into the patient’s body by small incisions that the doctor slits before he sucks the fat.

Vaser technology removes sagging from different areas of the body as well as it tightens the areas from which the fat is removed, until the patient gets a slim body without skin sagging, as the goal of liposuction is that the patient gets satisfied with his body in a highly percentage after the operation.
