Ideally, there should be no significant lumpiness or irregularity of shape.What is the maximum amount of fat that can be aspirated in one procedure?Dr.Hasan Ali prefer not to take out fat which is more than 5-6% of the body weight.
So if a patient is 80 Kg, 4 liters of fat is usually taken out in one stage but there are conditions when there is a need of mega liposuction to relieve severe symptoms resulting from huge fat deposition.
A recently published study in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal found that VASER Lipo significantly limits blood loss during liposuction when compared to traditional liposuction alone. The authors concluded that VASER-assisted lipoplasty should be recommended over traditional suction-assisted lipoplasty for patients undergoing large-volume liposuction procedures or treatments in very fibrous areas of the body where increased blood loss is expected.

More About Vaser Liposuction
With the advancement of technology, cosmetic and body contouring procedures got new techniques introduced into the midst. One of the alternate technology to traditional liposuction is the Vaser liposuction or LipoSelection technique. The idea behind both traditional liposuction and Vaser liposuction is to remove the unwanted fatty deposits beneath the skin to improve the aesthetics of an individual’s body. However, unlike in the case of traditional liposuction, where majority patients use the technique as a way to lose weight, Vaser liposuction is performed on healthy individuals who are looking forward to body sculpting or body contouring procedure.
Vaser liposuction is an FDA approved technique that was introduced in the year 2002. The technology uses sound waves to loosen the body fat before proceeding with liposuction and body sculpting. During the Vaser liposuction, a tumescent liquid or a saline liquid mixed with anaesthetics is injected into the area of the patient’s body which is being treated. However, Vaser liposuction uses high-frequency ultrasound vibrations to break the fat cells that can be removed gently instead of manual movements with a cannula, laser or water pressure.
For the Vaser liposuction procedure, the plastic surgeon uses a Vaser ultrasonic probe to reach into the fatty tissue and gently break the fat cells down. The ultrasound vibration can gently loosen and disengage the fat cells and help in disruption of fat cells. Using the cannula, the emulsifies saline liquid mixed with fat is than removed. Most of the loosened fat cells are thus washed out of the body, while some of the anaesthetics remain in the body, giving pain relief post-procedure.
Unlike the traditional liposuction, Vaser liposuction in Dubai is considered much gentler on the body by offering the plastic surgeon better control in helping the patient get a smoothly contoured body. Vaser liposuction is also designed specifically to loosen the fat in an area without damaging the surrounding tissues and use the saline solution to take them out in a relatively less painful process. It minimizes the risk of extensive bruising and bleeding that can occur with use of traditional method of liposuction.
Vaser liposuction is quite suitable in treating the thighs, knees, abdomen, love handles arms, chest, chin and neck. The procedure is usually performed under IV sedation and in rare cases under general anesthesia, depending upon the treatment plan decided by the plastic surgeon.
As a purely cosmetic procedure, Vaser liposuction is not intended to remove the internal visceral fat that is wrapped around the body organs like liver, intestine. Our expert plastic surgeons at Hasan surgery can identify and target the unwanted fatty tissue without harming the nearby tissue, using Vaser liposuction.
The ideal candidate for a Vaser liposuction procedure must already have their target weight and should be leading a healthy lifestyle. As a body contouring procedure, it is important for the patients to maintain a healthy lifestyle even after the Vaser liposuction procedure. Vaser liposuction will not help in losing weight nor will it help keep an individual from putting on weight.
Vaser liposuction is suitable for both men and women who are prepared to continue with a healthy lifestyle post procedure. The procedure is perfect for people looking to lose a few inches around their waist, thighs or hips and tighten the loose skin following natural weight loss.
Plastic surgeons will check the patient’s previous medical history prior to recommending the Vaser liposuction procedure for body contouring. The technique will show desirable results only on men and women who are generally healthy and does not have any previous history of having cardiac issues, pulmonary emboli, excessive bleeding, seizures, immunodeficiency disorders or deep vein thrombosis. Such people are discouraged from appearing for the procedure in case of having any of the above conditions as there is a higher risk of surgical complications in such individuals
People who are on certain anti-inflammatory and anticoagulant drugs are also discouraged from undergoing Vaser liposuction. Further, candidates with poor skin elasticity are also less suitable candidate for the procedure. Pregnant and breastfeeding women are also unsuitable candidates for Vaser liposuction.
Aftercare & Results
Post liposuction surgery, the patient’s skin will start to tighten. Therefore, the patients can expect visible results usually around the 6th week after the surgery. However, the results are best visible after a few months post-Vaser liposuction procedure as the body takes 4 to 6 months to completely heal.
The patient will feel some pain and discomfort for 3 days to a week time after the Vaser liposuction. He or she will be asked to wear a compression garment for the first 6 weeks to ease the pain as well as to aid the healing process.
