Sculpt Up

Royal Bahrain Hospital’s Royal Aesthetic Center introduces the state-of-the-art, hi-definition body sculpting experience to the Kingdom.

Hi-definition liposculpture is one of the most sought-after surgical procedures in aesthetic plastic surgery. It provides patients with the ideal body contour by utilising Vaser – a third generation ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty technique. It uses ultrasound energy to emulsify (soften and break) excess fat, without damaging blood vessels and nerves, making aspiration of fat easy, resulting in less bruising and tissue damage. The suction-aspirated fat can be used for fat grafting procedures in the same sitting, termed 4D body sculpture. Areas typically treated in males are the chest, abdomen and arms, while for females, it is the neck, abdomen, flanks, back, buttocks, thighs, hips and calves.

As with all other liposuction techniques, this is not a substitute for weight reduction, but a method of removing fatty tissue deposits and improving the figure. The best candidates for hi-definition body contouring are individuals of relatively normal weight who have excess fat in particular areas of the body. Firm, elastic skin will result in a better final result.

After the fat plane is wetted with a solution, a solid metal grooved Vaser probe is inserted. Ultrasonic energy emits from the end and sides of the probe, as it is passed back and forth, breaking down fatty deposits in the superficial and deep planes. A hollow cannula is then inserted and is directed through the area of emulsified fat cells. The vacuum source attached to the cannula provides gentle suction to remove the emulsified fat. Because the Vaser procedure is unique, in that it first targets and dissolves fat cells and then draws off emulsified fat, it leaves the collagen matrix intact. Surgical trauma, complications and potential for post-operative pain and bruising are minimised, while skin retraction/ tightening is optimal. This enables smooth sculpting of body fat in the chest and abdominal regions, giving a chiselled, muscular look in male patients and a lean, fit appearance in females.

The overall advantages of Vaser are:

  • Less trauma resulting in reduced bleeding, bruises and pain and faster recovery.
  • Safe for superficial use and hence used for high-definition contouring.
  • Better skin tightening than regular suction-assisted liposuction.
  • Aspirated fat can safely be used for augmentation or contouring of other body parts.
