Move over Gisele Bundchen and Brad Pitt - Vaser Hi Definition Body Sculpting could have us all looking Hollywood hot this summer!
If you’re tired of slogging it out at the gym and living on a diet of tuna and salad then Vaser Hi Definition Body Sculpting could be the solution to melting away that spare tyre.
Already a hit in the United States, Vaser Hi Definition Body Sculpting is a ground-breaking treatment which promises a six-pack for men and athletic, feminine curves for women.
Unlike traditional liposuction it’s the fat Vaser Hi Definition Body Sculpting leaves behind that makes it so unique.
Surgeons use a small cannula or probe attached to a Vaser machine (Vaser- Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) which creates sound waves to liquify fat before it’s suctioned out. This advanced keyhole technology results in minimal scarring. Existing fat is also sculpted over muscles to leave a muscular, athletic shape.
The fat targeted in the Vaser Hi Definition Body Sculpting procedure is the hard to reach stuff often referred to as the “sacred centimeter” - it’s the superficial subcutaneous fat that is near impossible to burn off during exercise. To get the same results you’d need to whittle yourself down around 3-5% body fat through diet and exercise - a tough ask unless you’re a full-time athlete!
Pioneered in early 2002 by Columbian plastic surgeon Alfredo Hoyos, Vaser Hi Definition Body Sculpting was then adopted by one of America’s most respected cosmetic plastic surgeons, Dr John Millard of Denver, Colorado. His successes with the surgery have already been documented in the United States with features on Good Morning America, Dr 90210, Fox News, Extra and the NBC Today Show.
Now Kiwis can benefit with the first Vaser Hi Definition Body Sculpting clinics being run by the Skin Institute - the only official centre in New Zealand with specialists trained in the treatment.
The Skin Institute’s Dr Mark Gray studied with Dr Millard, spending time in Denver learning the complicated procedure from one of its most respected practitioners.
Vaser Hi Definition Body Sculpting takes between two and five hours to perform and can be carried out under general or local anaesthesia depending on the amount of work to be done. The surgery can selectively remove fat from around the muscular structures leaving nerves and blood vessels largely undisturbed.
Interestingly the procedure also allows for reintroduction of fat into areas requiring bulking such as pecs or deltoid regions, butt or breasts. Women’s bodies can be transformed to slim and athletic with feminine curves while men can achieve obvious six-pack abs, oblique muscles and pecs.
Vaser Hi Definition Body Sculpting is suited to anybody wanting to look their best ever, although very overweight people will need to lose some weight before the surgery.
The results of the Vaser Hi Definition Body Sculpting technique can be remarkable and seen almost immediately with the best results visible after two to three months. Patients usually need a week’s recovery time.
Vaser Hi Definition Body Sculpting starts from $5000. For more information visit www.skininstitute.co.nz
