NU Cosmetic Clinic on Rodney Street are now offering Vaser Liposuction. There are so many alternatives to the traditional lip these days that I hear lipsuction and think, “Yep, tell me more.” So what’s this Vaser all about then?
What is it? [Source: Vaser.com]
VASERlipo™ is a simple, minimally invasive liposuction procedure that can be performed in a physician’s office, a hospital, or an outpatient surgery center, while you are awake or under general anesthesia.
During the procedure, ultrasound energy is used to treat unwanted fat, loosening the cells from other tissues so they can be gently removed through a small tube. Depending on the number of areas being treated, the procedure can take as little as one hour or up to several hours.
After a VASERlipo procedure, patients wear special compression garments to help skin contract smoothly to the body’s new contours. A short period of rest (typically 12 hours) is recommended, followed by two to three weeks of general recovery when strenuous activities should be avoided.
Results are immediately noticeable after the VASERlipo procedure and will continue to improve as the body heals. Final results are typically seen in about three to four months.
What’s it really like?
Paul has been and had it done at Nu Cosmetic Clinic on Rodney Street and here’s his story: “I have been going to the gym since 2002 on and off and in few years until last few months i was a regular to the gym. However i was not able to shift some fat around abdomen areas although my weight is still the same in last few years. After researching and reading about the procedure and going for the consultation i decided to undertake it myself. I felt Nu Cosmetic was very honest in their opinion as what they can or can’t achieve. Hence after debating for some time i decided to take the plunge myself. I arrived early to the clinic which is set centrally in Rodney Street (with its own car park which is a bonus being in city centre) as could not sleep in the night as I have never been to the doctors apart from my dentist appointment once. I was seen by the Lindsey, Nurse & Marie Co-ordinator who I felt they can’t do enough to make me comfortable, followed on by the doctor itself. I was explained again the care plan and how it will proceed followed by few paperwork and other health checks. I was given diazepam to calm myself down and then was taken to the operating theatre. I was asked to change and then the game begins. I was given local anaesthesia and the team was busy sucking the fat out. I was so surprised that it was not at all painful. To be very honest I was in more pain when I went to dentist few years ago. It seems more than a ltr was taken out from the lower abdomen area. I was advised that leakage will happen as few ltrs of fluid was pumped in the body. No sutures was used during the procedure. I was given all the medicines and dressing just in case I required. Infact the nu team went too far as I was driving back home myself every care was taken that I don’t leak anywhere so was given sheets etc. On the night of the surgery I did leak and I have to change my clothes few times. I was given the garment to wear and was advised to take antibiotics for 7 days. I was also given painkillers which I did not took as it was not that painful.” 5 weeks later: “Approx 5 weeks now and I can truly see the difference and the results. Scars are fading away and have started going to the Gym now this week. Dropped weight by approx. 2kg and certainly have lost waist size. Its time to buy slim fit shirts too from my normal regular one. Thanks Nu Keep the good work going”
