VASER Liposuction, also called LipoSelection, is an alternative ultrasonic-assisted liposuction. Since its launch in 2008, VASER Lipo has become one of the most popular body contouring procedures in Singapore. VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. It utilises ultrasound technology to create vibrations that break down fat cells, leaving other major tissues undisturbed. Tumescent fluid (a concoction of lidocaine and saline) is infiltrated into the areas to be treated for the patient's comfort. VASER Lipo also stimulates collagen, allowing skin retraction after liposuction. This technique causes lesser bleeding, bruising and faster patient recovery.
VASER Lipo was introduced to Singapore by Dr Ivan Puah, Medical Director of Amaris B. Clinic and two other doctors. It utilises the assistance of patented ultrasonic sound wave technology to liquefy the stubborn fat tissues, which will then be suctioned out, resulting in smooth body contouring results.
Doctors who want to perform VASER Lipo have to undergo the required training to be VASER Certified. Dr Ivan Puah, has undergone training in body sculpting and VASER® Fundamental and Advanced Body Sculpting in the USA and Argentina. He is accredited by the Ministry Of Health Singapore to perform liposuction and has been performing liposuction since 2005.
