VASERlipo®

VASERlipo®

VASERlipo is a revolutionary approach to liposuction that incorporates ultrasound-assisted technology for precision body sculpting. VASERlipo provides effective fat reduction in both large areas on the body, such as the flanks, abdomen and thighs, as well as more delicate treatment areas, including anterior and posterior bra bulge, and the submental fat under the chin that causes the appearance of a double chin.

This advanced procedure allows men and women to eliminate stubborn fat that doesn’t respond to diet and exercise. One advantage of VASERlipo over traditional liposuction techniques is that the ultrasound energy delivers skin tightening benefits and also allows Dr. Reis to fine-tune your results to deliver meticulous body contouring for a toned and sculpted look.

VASERlipo Procedure

VASERlipo sends pulsating ultrasound waves to target areas to generate heat which effectively breaks apart fatty tissue and disconnects it from underlying muscle. During a VASERlipo procedure, Dr. Reis will sedate the patient with anesthesia and begin the treatment by filling the treatment area with a saline solution. He’ll then use the VASERlipo device to send ultrasound energy to fat cells in the target area before removing them from the body using power assisted liposuction.

VASERlipo Recovery

Following a VASERlipo procedure, patients may experience swelling, bruising and discomfort in treatment areas. Like traditional liposuction, patients are provided with a compression garment they need to wear for three months after the procedure. While improvement is visible immediately following the procedure, they will continue to improve over time as swelling and inflammation subsides. Final results can be seen as early as 2-3 months with full results seen approximately 6 months after VASERlipo treatment.

VASERlipo Results

While VASERlipo results are permanent, they can be affected due to weight fluctuations and the natural process of aging. Patients can maintain their results long-term with lifestyle choices that include a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Who is a Good Candidate for VASERlipo?

VASERlipo shouldn’t be relied upon as a weight loss alternative, but is intended for healthy individuals at or near their ideal body weight who are seeking to remove stubborn pockets of fat and precisely contour their figure to reveal muscle tone.
