VASER Smooth

The VASER Smooth procedure uses ultrasound energy from a specialised probe to disrupt the fibrous attachments immediately under the skin in cellulite.  Cellulite affects an estimated 85% of women. It’s linked to the effects of the oestrogen hormone on the skin and soft tissues.

The procedure is unique in that it first targets fat cells and then cuts the fibrous bands causing the dimples associated with cellulite. Complications and the potential for post-operative pain and bruising are minimised while the skin condition is optimal.

VASER Smooth procedure

Smoking and illicit drug use must be strictly avoided before the procedure.  We take smoking very seriously as a high risk for any procedure, so you must be aware of the cancellation policy if you smoke.  Smoking increases the risk of some serious complications during and after surgery.  Ideally, you should stop smoking at least 8 weeks prior to a procedure, cutting down does not reduce the risk of complications, however, the greatest health benefit is gained by quitting smoking for good.  More information about the possible complications, as well as information about how to quit, is available here.

You should be fit and healthy, and avoid blood thinning medication such as aspirin and anti-inflammatory medicine. At least two consultations are needed before most procedures. A full history and examination will be conducted. You will be started on antibiotics and extensive instructions will be given.

What happens during the VASER Smooth procedure?

VASER Smooth is usually performed as a day-case procedure under sedation. You will be admitted early in the morning and discharged later that afternoon.

The amount of time allocated to each patient depends on factors including the size and number of areas being treated.  At the end of your procedure, you will go through to recovery, where you will be discharged home to your carer to rest. You will then come back the very next day for one of your follow-up appointments.

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.

Important: 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.

Manual lymphatic massage

Performing manual lymphatic massage (MLM) on yourself can be beneficial for promoting lymphatic flow and reducing swelling.
Here are some general guidelines for a DIY MLM session: Wait 2 weeks after surgery.1. Prepare the space: Find a comfortable and quiet space where you can lie down or sit in a relaxed position. Use a firm surface, such as a mat or massage table, and ensure the room temperature is comfortable.2. Begin with deep breathing: Take a few deep breaths to relax your body and mind before starting the massage. This helps promote a sense of calm and aids in lymphatic circulation.3. Gentle warm-up: Before directly targeting the lymphatic areas, gently warm up your body by lightly massaging your neck, shoulders, and chest using broad circular motions. This helps prepare the lymphatic vessels for better flow.4. Neck and collarbone area: Start by placing your fingers at the base of your neck and make gentle, slow circular motions, moving towards the collarbone. Repeat this motion several times to stimulate lymphatic drainage in this region.5. Arm massage: For the arms, use gentle, rhythmic motions. Starting from the hand, massage in the direction of the armpit, where the lymph nodes are located. Use a soft touch and repeat the motion several times on each arm.6. Leg massage: Similar to the arm massage, work your way from the feet towards the inguinal lymph nodes located in the groin area. Use light strokes, moving upwards in a rhythmic manner. Repeat the motion several times on each leg.7. Abdominal massage: Place your hands below your ribcage and gently massage in a clockwise circular motion. This helps stimulate lymphatic flow in the abdominal region. Be mindful of any surgical incisions and avoid applying pressure directly to those areas.8. Relaxation and hydration: After completing the massage, take a few moments to relax and continue deep breathing. It’s essential to hydrate yourself by drinking plenty of water to support lymphatic function.Remember, self-massage techniques should be gentle and not cause pain. If you have specific concerns, recent surgical incisions, or complex medical conditions, it’s best to consult with a certified lymphatic massage therapist or your healthcare provider before attempting self-MLM. They can provide personalized guidance and ensure you perform the massage safely and effectively.
