At The Aesthetic Medicine & Anti-Aging Clinics of Louisiana, we want to help you look and feel your best so that you can live a happy, healthy, confident life. If you lead a healthy lifestyle including regular physical activity and a nutritious diet but still struggle with stubborn pockets of fat resistant to your efforts, VASER liposuction may be right for you.
What is VASER Liposuction?
VASER liposuction is an FDA-certified method of removing fat deposits efficiently, accurately and safely. It differs from traditional liposuction in that is less invasive, using state-of-the-art ultrasound technology to loosen fat gently while using a saline solution to protect and preserve surrounding tissue. The local anesthetic remains in the tissue after the procedure for your increased comfort.
Surgeons can perform this treatment or procedure on any body area with enough fat to be removed. Common treatment areas include:
- Love handles
What Should I Expect?
If you are considering VASER liposuction, you may wonder what to expect. Here are a few things you can expect:
- See the full results of your treatment or procedure in the weeks afterwards.
- May need someone to drive you home.
- Have a follow-up appointment days after your procedure with the surgeon.
- Be asked to wear a compression garment after your procedure.
Who is a Good Candidate?
You may wonder if you are a good candidate for safe, minimally-invasive VASER liposuction. You will find out more information specific to you as an individual at your initial consultation, but here are a few general guidelines:
You Want to Contour Your Body
You may be a better candidate for VASER liposuction than traditional liposuction if you are looking to sculpt your body and reveal well-defined muscles through the use of a minimally-invasive procedure.
You Have Elastic Skin
Unfortunately, as we age or frequently lose and gain weight, our skin loses elasticity. If you have loose, sagging skin already, it may be best to ask about scheduling another procedure as well.
You Have Realistic Expectations
It is important to understand that liposuction is not a miracle cure for weight loss. Adults cannot regrow fat cells, but if you gain weight after your procedure, your existing fat cells will expand, and you may need to schedule another procedure.
