Are you looking to lose weight and finally get your dream figure one day? Diet and exercise can help you drop some pounds, but these traditional methods don’t have significant results for everyone.
Many people find it hard to lose those last few pounds due to stubborn areas of our bodies. This is where procedures like VASER liposuction can make a huge difference.
Galanis Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills provides VASER liposuction to help patients shed excess weight and contour their figure.
This popular high definition surgery method of fat reduction is minimally invasive and produces significant, often permanent results. Learn more about the procedure below!
What Is VASER Liposuction?
Also known as high definition vaser liposuction, this relatively new procedure is a 4D lipo-sculpting procedure that uses numerous devices and innovative technology to remove unwanted fatty tissue from the body and create a sexier more desirable figure.
This form of liposuction can rid patients of excess weight and enhance the appearance of the underlying muscle in the abdomen, arms, and legs. Other common target treatment areas are the lower back, the love handles, chin, and neck.
The Benefits of High Definition Liposuction
Patients choose VASER liposuction because it achieves several cosmetic objectives with optimal results, including the following:
- Removes excess fatty tissue
- Creates a more sculpted figure
- Enhances the appearance of muscle
VASER liposuction has become an increasingly popular form of liposuction because it is easier on the patient than traditional lipo and yields major results.
High-def lipo has helped patients with localized fat deposits in the face, legs, buttocks, stomach, waist, lower back, arms, and chest without much downtime.
Am I a Good Candidate for VASER Liposuction?
VASER is a fat loss (not weight loss) procedure. The ideal candidate for VASER liposuction has only a small amount of excess fat they cannot lose with diet or exercise. This is typically patients with a BMI under 32. Individuals with a large amount of excess weight would not benefit from this procedure.
VASER lipo patients should be non-smokers in generally good overall health with no significant underlying medical conditions.
How Is VASER Liposuction Performed?
Depending on the patient’s unique needs, high definition liposuction can be performed under conscious sedation or general anesthesia.
The procedure begins with small 1-2CM incisions made discreetly around the treatment areas, where your provider will inject a numbing agent.
A long, thin cannula will then be used to suction fat from the treatment areas with the assistance of laser or hi def ultrasound technology.
VASER liposuction is an outpatient procedure, which means patients can return home the same day.
Questions and Answers
What happens to the fat tissue after a high definition liposuction?
Following Vaser Liposuction, the emulsified fat cells are extracted via a cannula, with the eliminated fat usually being disposed of. Occasionally, a portion of the extracted fat might be repurposed for alternative uses, such as in fat transfer procedures.
How long does fat transfer liposuction last?
The results of this procedure are long-lasting, not all transplanted fat cells may survive the process, impacting the desired volume.
The full outcomes become evident after approximately six months to a year old post procedure. During this time, the injected fat cells establish a new blood supply.
Can the fat from the liposuction be used for breast augmentation?
Yes, your surgeon can utilize high definition liposuction to extract fat from one or multiple areas of your body, subsequently transferring it to your breasts. Structural breast fat grafting can produce a natural, enduring outcome while minimizing incisions and reducing scarring.
Fat grafting has become a popular technique and often preferred over options like silicone implants.
Can hi def Vaser lipo help with skin tightening as well?
Yes. This procedure should help with skin tightening. It is important to know that loose skin can contribute to you not having the exact look you want following surgery.
In extreme cases, laser resurfacing may be suggested to help diminish wrinkles, skin spots, and fine lines.
Will I need to wear a compression garment following my procedure?
It generally is highly recommended that you should wear a compression garment for at least 6 weeks post op. Depending on your skins elasticity, your surgeon will advise you specifically based on your personal need.
