CONTOUR YOUR BODY
IN JUST ONE SESSION
VASER® liposuction is an advanced body contouring technology that is
virtually painless, takes as little as one hour to perform and requires just one
session, even when treating multiple areas. Ideal for contouring all areas of
the body including the face, this revolutionary procedure is clinically proven
to enhance skin tightening in the treated areas.
Using ultrasonic sound waves to gently separate
fat cells, VASER® liposuction can be performed in
a doctor's surgery under local anaesthetic or in
hospital under general anaesthetic. Healing
times are also faster as the ultrasonic sound
waves specifically target fat, thereby
minimising the risk of damage to surrounding
nerves, blood vessels or connective tissue.
Suitable for everything from minor contouring
touch-ups to major transformations, this
state-of-the-art technology is smoother and
more predictable than traditional liposuction,
with its final results also visible months sooner.

My dear son
The time has come when you should
know your father s condition has
worsened. You already know that he
had a stroke some time ago which
developed into vascular dementia.
Recently, he had some sort of turn at
home and was taken to hospital.
The staff called a family conference and
we were told there was no question that
he could return home. We were asked
to nominate a nursing home of choice.
Your father would be transferred there
when a vacancy became available.
Your father has now entered that
nursing home and is being very well
cared for by dedicated and gentle staff.
He does not recognise any visitors;
he speaks very little and what is said
cannot be understood. He is unable to
feed, bathe or dress himself. He sleeps
for most of each day, and when not in
bed he is placed into a special chair
where the configuration can be altered
to relieve pressure on his body.
He is fully dependent upon the staff for
his every need and wellbeing.
Your father is now in the severe and
final stages of this dementia. The
experts tell us the end could be soon --
or it could be some later indefinite time.
We wait for that phone call to tell us he
You have your life to live as you see fit.
However, we, your parents, have loved
you from the day you were born -- and
we will have that love for you for the
remainder of our lives.
Take care and be at peace,
Love from Mum
to a distant child
A carer's letter

privacy and confidentiality. The story conveyed in the letter is not unique or uncommon. The son last communicated with the family
about three years ago, and has never acknowledged the mother s former letter.
