A healthy body image and self-confidence go hand-in-hand. However, not everyone is happy with what they see in the mirror. In fact, a 2018 study in medical journal JAMA Dermatology of 511 patients on their motivations behind plastic surgery found three main reasons: to increase their sense of psychological well-being (69.3 percent), to boost self-confidence (56.6 percent) and to improve one’s health (53 percent). 

 

Our body image issues aren’t helped by the constant flood of images on social media of celebrities, models and influencers with their slim, toned and trim physiques. These add fuel to the body image fire, making us feel less than satisfied with our own figures.

 

If you find yourself looking in the mirror and picking at certain areas that could use improvements, like a jelly belly, lower belly pooch, bat-wings and wobbly thighs that you can’t seem to lose despite diligent exercise, then VASER Lipo might be able to help. 

 

A minimally invasive body sculpting treatment, VASER Lipo targets fat loss in localised areas like the arms, stomach, thighs, chest, and even, chin. It is suitable for both women and men.

 

The treatment uses ultrasonic wave energy to create high-frequency vibrations (hence the name) that break down stubborn fat cells by liquefying them, which makes for easier removal through vacuum suction. Dr Ivan Puah, medical director of Amaris B. Clinic, developed his unique body sculpting approach, known as the MDC-Sculpt® Lipo technique, that allows him to remove fat thoroughly and achieve precise sculpting. This gives patients a more desirable cosmetic outcome, with surgical scarring reduced to the bare minimum. 

 

Plus, VASER Lipo is also gentle on the body: It is able to draw out excess fat while leaving the surrounding important connective tissues untouched, minimising bruising. In addition, the procedure promises to eliminate more than 90 percent of localised stubborn fat, while stimulating collagen production to tighten and firm the skin at the same time. 

 

More importantly, it can help men who are diagnosed with mixed gynecomastia. Mixed gynecomastia Involves the enlargement of glandular tissue with proliferation of excess fatty tissues on the chest. Men who suffer from mixed gynecomastia often experience symptoms such as breast tenderness, swelling and pain.

 

Dr Puah says gynecomastia is the number one issue when it comes to male body image, and its effects extend beyond physical discomfort. Many men also suffer from psychological issues, such as depression, anxiety and low self-esteem, he adds.

 

As they age, many men think that exercising regularly and eating right can help get rid of their moobs. However, Dr Ivan Puah says the most effective procedure to address this issue is gynecomastia surgery. He has not only undergone dedicated training in the procedure, but has also developed a unique technique called 360-degrees Glandular Tissue Dissection (360-degrees GTD) to improve the results.  

 

To do so, Dr Puah creates incisions of up to 4mm long, which allows him to dissect carefully following the glandular tissues. This not only reduces the invasiveness of the surgery, but also ensures minimal scarring after. 

 

The success and results of these two procedures rely heavily on your doctor’s training, skills and experience. It is imperative to look for a qualified doctor who is well-trained and experienced in performing liposuction or gynecomastia surgery, and who can help customise a treatment plan to meet your needs. 

 

This is where Dr Puah’s experience in body sculpting treatments over the last 15 years comes in. He is able to suss out a patient’s needs and tailor a programme to help you achieve the body you desire.
