VASER ® is a state-of- the-art ultrasound Assisted Liposuction technology which acts selectively on tissues liquefying fat to facilitate extraction and protect other tissues like blood vessels and nerves. This results in less post-operation pain and inflammation.
Once the fat has been emulsified it is suctioned with the aid of a small cannula (slim pipe) introduced via small incisions in the skin, to extract the unwanted fatty tissue.
VASER® technology acts selectively only on fatty tissue achieving smooth predictable results with a fast recovery.
The downside is that with being state-of- the-art technology it is not widely available or used by all plastic surgeons, thereby reducing patient accessibility to a surgery with this technology.
BODY TEMPERATURE REGULATION SYSTEM (BTR)
Maintaining correct body temperature is highly important for patient comfort, as it: prevents shivering, pain, reduces bleeding, accelerates recovery and reduces infection risk. A drop in body temperature or hypothermia can compromise and seriously complicate a patient’s condition. This strict temperature control and maintenance is essential. This system enables body temperature to be maintained throughout surgery, thus preventing the infamous shivering immediately post-operation.
It regulates patient temperature during surgery thus reducing bleeding, pain, shivers and helping a quicker recovery to be achieved.
Patients subjected to general or regional anesthesia are unable to correctly regulate their own temperature.
The core body temperature drops almost 1.6 ºC during the first hour post-anesthesia induction thereby increasing the feared risks associated with unintentional hypothermia, i.e. higher death rates, prolonged hospital stays and an increase in the rate of wound infections.
Hot air heating is a simple profitable way to prevent hypothermia and its complications. Studies show that maintaining a normal temperature during a surgical intervention is a critical factor in the reduction of the operating theatre infection rate.
