It is estimated that cellulite affects 85 per cent of women. The association with women is linked to the effects of the oestrogen hormone on the skin and soft tissues, which we do not fully understand.
Cellulite is dimpled, uneven skin with a ‘cobblestone’ or orange peel’ appearance. The most common areas of the woman’s body affected by cellulite are the posterior thighs and the buttocks. However, cellulite may affect other areas as well such as the abdomen, hips and back.
The VASER Smooth procedure is designed to address this condition by reducing the appearance of cellulite.
What is VASER Smooth?
The VASER Smooth procedure uses ultrasound energy from a specialised VASER Smooth probe to disrupt the fibrous attachments observed immediately under the skin in cellulite.
The VASER Smooth procedure is unique in that it first targets fat cells and then cuts the fibrous bands causing the dimples associated with cellulite. Therefore, complications and the potential for post-operative pain and bruising are minimized while the skin condition is optimal.
What Happens During the Procedure?
VASER Smooth is typically preformed as a day-case procedure under sedation, so patients will usually be admitted early in the morning and discharged later that afternoon. The amount of time allocated to each patient will depend on a variety of factors such as the size and number of areas being treated. It is normal to expect minimal discomfort for the first few days post-op but patients can usually resume their normal activities within a few days.
We are dedicated to providing patient focused care with minimal discomfort so most of our patients will have their procedure carried out under sedation. It is important to remember that this procedure is not a substitute for weight reduction. It is a method for treating the fibrous bands, and removing localised deposits of fatty tissue, if appropriate. Liposuction removes unwanted deposits of fat from anywhere in the body, however, liposuction alone does not treat changes associated with cellulite.
