Is VASER® Lipo right for me?
Along with eye color, hair color, and other traits, our genes affect many aspects of our appearance, including how and where our bodies store fat. Even with healthy eating habits and vigorous exercise, some bulges and fat deposits seem impossible to lose. Those stubborn bulges can appear in the hips, thighs, arms, and other areas besides the abdomen.
Traditional liposuction surgery has helped many to eliminate these unsightly fat deposits, but a new technique called VASER® Lipo is now available to achieve the same results in a minimally invasive manner and with a quicker recovery time.
A State-of-the-Art Alternative
VASER® Lipo uses high-tech ultrasound technology, which liquefies fat for easy removal. This enables our Virginia cosmetic surgeons to reshape your body more gently using smaller incisions that enable a fast recovery. The VASER® Lipo system is precise and efficient, allowing your surgeon to strategically remove unwanted fat deposits and create the attractive body contour you desire.
During the VASER® Lipo procedure, the area to be reshaped is treated with a specially formulated saline solution to reduce blood loss and bruising. The saline solution also assists VASER® Lipo’s ultrasound technology in liquefying fatty tissue. Ultrasonic waves are delivered with a small probe, breaking up fat cells while preserving crucial tissue and internal organs. The fatty tissue is then removed gently with a specialized suction tube.
Advantages of VASER® Lipo
If you have been considering body contouring surgery to remove stubborn fat deposits, but are looking for a faster, less painful solution than traditional liposuction, VASER® Lipo may be right for you. VASER® Lipo provides a minimally invasive option with a quicker recovery time. The advanced VASER® Lipo technology can reshape your body to produce the appearance and self-esteem boost you have been seeking.
There are some limits on how much fat VASER® Lipo can safely remove, and there may be other body contouring surgeries that could better fit your needs. Our Virginia body contour surgeons are ready to explain each of your options and help you reach a decision by explaining the potential benefit, risks, and recovery time of each procedure.
