Hi-Def Vaser Liposuction faq

What is VASERlipo?

The VASERlipo® is an advanced liposuction technology that uses patented ultrasonic energy to disrupt and contour fat. VASER is a specialized modality to take lipo-sculpting to the next level, allowing your cosmetic surgeon to more precisely target and sculpt fat for techniques like Hi-def and 3-D liposuction.

How does Hi-Def Vaser Liposuction work?

During a VASERlipo procedure, the area to be treated is first treated with a tumescent wetting solution through tiny incisions. After skin protectors are placed the small Vaser probe is carefully inserted and the ultrasound energy is applied which disrupts fat cells and liquefies the fat, allowing for the fatty fluid to be easily aspirated with gentle liposuction. The Vaser probe can selectively destroy fat attached to the overlying skin and allows for precise contouring giving you the smooth defined results that VASERLipo Hi-def is known for.

How many treatments will I need?

VASERlipo is a one-time treatment. Most patients notice the difference immediately, but the skin needs time to tighten, so the final result can take 4-6 months.

Which areas can the VASERlipo procedure treat?

VASERlipo can be used on a variety of treatment areas, including: Abdomen, flanks, waist, hips, back, thighs, arms, as well as lower face, jowls, and neck.

How much fat can be taken in one procedure?

VASERlipo can be used to treat multiple areas at once. There are general safety guidelines, but your surgeon will determine the amount that is safe to remove and the amount necessary to achieve the results desired.

What kind of results can I expect?

More precise contouring over traditional liposuction
• Skin retraction for enhanced results
• Smooth, defined body contouring
• Less pain and swelling and faster recovery than traditional liposuction alone.

When do the results appear, and how long do they last?

VASERlipo results can be seen almost immediately. As swelling subsides over 1-3 months, the results will become even more evident. Skin tightening can be seen by 6-months and even out to 18-months. Since fat cells don’t regenerate, as long as you maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle, your VASERlipo results should be semi-permanent if not permanent!

Does the VASERlipo procedure do more than just remove fat? Can it sculpt a six-pack?

Yes, this technique is known as VASER HiDef® — This is an advanced technique where VASER technology is used to specifically etch out muscle contours to accentuate muscular borders. This results in a chiseled athletic look that some patients have difficulty achieving on their own.

What will I look like immediately after the procedure?

Immediately after a VASERlipo procedure you can expect to be a little swollen and perhaps a little bruised. Most of the swelling and bruising will subside after 1-2 weeks. Some of your results will be noticeable immediately, but your final results including skin tightening, smoothness, and resolution of all swelling may take up to 6 months to fully occur.

Can I go right back to work?

Although VASERlipo is a minimally invasive procedure, it is not a lunchtime procedure. It is considered a surgical procedure and in some cases, sedation and anesthesia are required. Most patients will require at least 1-2 days rest before returning to work depending on the number of areas treated. Physical activity like exercise may have to wait 2-3 weeks.

Is the VASERlipo procedure performed in your office?

VASERlipo can be performed in-office under local anesthesia or in a surgery center/hospital under general anesthesia, depending on the extent of the procedure and the number of areas treated. You and your physician must decide what is best to ensure proper safety and results.

How does the VASERlipo procedure differ from traditional liposuction? What are the benefits?

The VASERlipo procedure utilizes minimally-invasive ultrasound technology to spare important tissues while targeting fat (fat cells, nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues are all part of the affected tissue matrix). Our innovative technology breaks up fat while leaving all other important tissues intact, resulting in significant results with minimal damage to surrounding tissue.

What will happen to future weight gain or fat migrating to other areas?

Fat cells do not regenerate. The fat cells that are destroyed and removed are gone for good.As long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle and proper diet and exercise, your results should be permanent. However, If you experience weight gain or loss after your VASERlipo procedure, it will tend to be distributed proportionally all over your entire body. Fat does not travel or migrate. Also fat is necessary to a healthy body, some essential fat layers in any given area are necessary for normal health. Although they are fewer, the fat cells remaining still have capacity to store fat if you gain weight. Normal aging changes to skin and fat can also be expected over time.

Is Hi-Def Vaser-Lipo safe?

VASERlipo has been used safely for many years by doctors across the world. VASERlipo uses aggressive technique, there is typically less bruising, less trauma and a faster recovery time for patients than with traditional lipoplasty. However it is a surgical procedure and all surgical procedures come with a certain amount of risks including bleeding, infection, and injury to adjacent structures. Thankfully these complications are exceedingly rare, especially when VASERlipo is performed by an experienced surgeon in a proper facility.

How much does the VASERlipo treatment cost?

The cost of VASERlipo depends on the number of areas treated and can vary by geographic location or from surgeon to surgeon depending on the reputation and skill.
