Arnel Ignacio, Chuckie Dreyfus, and Yen Dreyfus are among the latest batch of celebrities to go under the knife in order to achieve an aesthetically pleasing physique.
What’s their secret? VASER High Definition Liposculpture from CONTOURS, a procedure that removes fat deposits located betwen the muscles and the skin.
Behind this miracle is Dr. Claudine Roura, the first Filipino dermasurgeon trained and certified by the father of VASER himself, Dr. Alfredo Hoyos, in Bogota, Colombia back in 2008.
The thought of going under the knife may scare you, but it is a very rewarding process, especially for those who are unable to get results through non-invasive methods.
For Arnel, Chuckie, and Yen, the results speak for themselves.
At 40 years old, Chuckie went from flabby to sexy, rocking a six-pack when most men his age sport a dadbod.
Yen, on the other hand, looks more like an FHM model than a 39 year-old mother of two. Her transformation photos are a testament to the hard work and dedication that she exerted to achieve a truly admirable physique.
“I can’t stop looking at my wife ever since she underwent the procedure,” shares Chuckie. “We are trying our best not to make a third baby,” he joked. The audience immediately burst out laughing.
Finally we have Arnel, who recently went to Boracay to showcase his six-pack abs. At 50 years old, he can easily hang out with a crowd of 20 to 30 year olds and not look out of place.
So what is this amazing procedure called VASER Lipo from CONTOURS? Here are 7 things that you need to know.
1. What is VASER?
VASER LipoSelection is a brand name for liposuction that uses ultrasonic energy to selectively remove fat.
The VASER is not a LASER procedure, but an acronym for Vibration Amplification Sound Energy at Resonance.
Ultrasonic energy creates vibrations that “shakes” fat cells and then mixed with fluid for suction and removal.
2. How is VASER different from conventional liposuction?
Not only is VASER more efficient at fat removal than conventional liposuction, it is also more selective (i.e. it disrupts fat cells but not blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue). As a result, it is less traumatic to the body.
This results in less swelling, less bruising and less patient discomfort post-operation.
3. What machine is used in VASER?
At CONTOURS, Dr. Claudine recently upgraded to a more sophisticated machine called the VASER Lipo 2.2 Power X. It is an automatic power-assisted machine that creates a faster and more convenient procedure for the surgeon.
The machine is sharp enough to target large fat deposits yet it is also gentle enough to treat cellulite on delicate body areas such as the arms and neck.
4. How long is the procedure and recovery time?
You can go from flabs to abs in about three hours with 12 hours of rest immediately after the procedure. You will also spend up to two weeks avoiding intense physical activities until swelling subsides.
5. How long will it take for you to see visible results?
Natural-looking results can be observed after just one session, however the best results can be achieved by following the entire program, which can last for 6 months to 2 years, depending on the procedure and the size of the treated area.
6. How safe is the procedure?
According to Dr. Roura, the procedure is very safe. It can only be performed by a board certified surgeon and so far there are no reported negative incidents resulting from the procedure.
7. How much is the investment for VASER?
VASER treatment at CONTOURS costs around Php 250k for the entire body. This includes fat redistribution for areas like the face, breasts, and glutes.
