What is VaserLipo?
Vaser liposuction or VaserLipo is an advanced body contouring procedure that utilizes cutting-edge technology to sculpt a slimmer physique with minimal downtime. Compared to traditional liposuction, VaserLipo uses specialized ultrasonic energy to break down and liquefy fat cells for easier removal. This results in a gentler procedure that sculpts your body with less trauma to surrounding tissues. By combining proven techniques with the latest in liposuction innovation, VaserLipo goes above and beyond to provide enhanced results that allow you to redefine your curves and achieve your body goals.
How does VaserLipo work?
Traditional liposuction often relies on a scraping technique to dislodge and remove unwanted fat cells, but VaserLipo eliminates the need for abrasive tools by using ultrasonic energy instead. A small probe transmits low-frequency ultrasonic vibrations to cause targeted fat cells to break up and detach from surrounding tissues as gently as possible, effective in even dense, fibrous areas that are more resistant to treatment. These fat cells are then liquified before being suctioned from the body, resulting in a more precise, comfortable procedure that enhances your overall results while minimizing discomfort and downtime.
Am I a good candidate for VaserLipo?
VaserLipo is an effective treatment for both men and women who want to sculpt a slimmer physique by eliminating stubborn fat from common problem areas. VaserLipo is not a weight loss procedure, however, and shouldn’t be used to avoid diet and exercise. Instead, VaserLipo is a tool to help you achieve your fitness goals by revealing smoother, leaner contours where you need it most. A highly versatile procedure, VaserLipo can be used almost anywhere on the body, including:
- Legs, hips and thighs
- Male breast tissue
- Upper and lower back
If you struggle with stubborn fat in these or other areas, schedule a consultation with Dr. Goyal and the body contouring experts at Coastal Dermatology & Medspa to determine if VaserLipo is right for you. During your consultation, Dr. Goyal will take the time to discuss your goals and develop a customized treatment plan to ensure that you achieve your desired results.
What to expect during VaserLipo
VaserLipo is a minimally-invasive procedure that uses a combination of ultrasound technology and a thin, hollow tube called a cannula to remove unwanted fat. Performed in-office under local anesthesia, VaserLipo typically takes one to three hours to complete, but this will vary depending on the size and scope of your treatment areas.
To begin, Dr. Goyal will make small, strategically-placed incisions to access the fatty deposits. He will then administer a specialized tumescent solution that includes saline, epinephrine and lidocaine to numb the treatment area to ensure your comfort while minimizing any bruising and blood loss. Next, an ultrasonic probe will be inserted to break up and emulsify targeted fat cells so they can be easily removed, preserving the surrounding tissues and allowing Dr. Goyal to produce an optimal outcome. Once the fat is liquified, it will be siphoned from the body, leaving behind chiseled contours and a smooth, toned figure. When enough fat has been removed to produce your desired results, the incisions will be closed and you may be fitted with compression garments to promote a smooth recovery. Dr. Goyal takes great care to ensure that incisions are well-hidden and any scarring will be almost imperceptible once healed.
What happens after VaserLipo?
After your VaserLipo procedure, you may experience some bruising and swelling, but this is completely normal and will begin to subside as your body heals. Compared to traditional liposuction, VaserLipo recovery is highly manageable and you should be able to return to work after a few days of rest. Strenuous exercise should still be avoided in the weeks following your procedure, however, and Dr. Goyal will advise when it is safe to resume all normal activities. You will also be given detailed aftercare instructions as well as compression garments, medications and anything else you need for a smooth recovery. If you have questions or concerns during this time, Dr. Goyal and the body sculpting experts at Coastal Dermatology & Medspa can be reached by calling the office. Your comfort and safety are our top priority and our team works hard to provide you with the highest level of care from the moment you walk through our doors, ensuring a positive experience before, during and after your VaserLipo procedure.
Your VaserLipo results
You will notice an immediate improvement in the contours of your body after VaserLipo, but more dramatic results may take some time to emerge as swelling decreases. Most patients achieve their body goals after a single treatment and enjoy permanent results as long as they commit to a healthy diet and regular exercise. For many patients, liposuction acts as a springboard that encourages an active, healthy lifestyle, motivating them to stay in shape long after the procedure. This makes it easier to maintain your new, slimmer contours while providing the confidence boost you need to achieve your fitness goals, especially if stubborn fat has been holding you back.
The VaserLipo Advantage
VaserLipo offers many advantages over other liposuction techniques, including increased precision and control that let Dr. Goyal to sculpt your desired contours with ease. VaserLipo can also be used for high-definition body sculpting, strategically removing layers of fat around the abdomen, chest, arms and legs to reveal a more athletic appearance. This advanced form of liposuction requires a high degree of precision to create the illusion of muscle definition, but Dr. Goyal’s expertise allows him to transform your body and highlight your unique muscular anatomy for results that are all your own. Some other benefits of VaserLipo that contribute to an optimal outcome include:
- More definition compared to traditional liposuction
- Permanent, natural-looking results
- Gentler procedure for less downtime
- More uniform extraction of unwanted fat
- Precise sculpting of delicate areas
