If you lead a healthy lifestyle, but you're frustrated by the resistance of stubborn areas of fat to diet and exercise, VASER® liposuction may be the solution you need to achieve the toned and contoured physique you desire. VASER® liposuction is an advanced procedure that removes unwanted fat from areas of the body with more precision and less pain than most body contouring treatments on the market. Diet and exercise can help you shed excess pounds and tone your muscles, but VASER® liposuction can further sculpt and contour your body in ways that diet and exercise cannot. The Center for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery in Orlando is led by board-certified plastic surgeon Kendall Peters, MD, FACS, who uses VASER® Lipo to gently tighten, tone, and reshape the bodies of men and women from Orange County and Central Florida.
What is VASER® Lipo?
VASER® Lipo, also known as LipoSelection®, is the most advanced and versatile body sculpting and skin smoothing treatment in the medical aesthetic industry. This procedure uses high-frequency ultrasonic vibrations to emulsify fat in the target area prior to removal, making the liposuction process quicker and less painful and damaging to the surrounding tissue.
Benefits of VASER® Lipo
VASER® Lipo can help men and women achieve a number of their aesthetic goals, including:
- A noticeable, slimming effect in a single treatment session
- Quick and easy removal of large stores of unwanted fat
- Toned and even-textured skin, even in delicate areas such as the arms and neck
- Improved muscle definition
How can I be sure I am a candidate for VASER® Lipo?
VASER® Lipo is not an alternative to a healthy diet and exercise for weight loss. This procedure is ideal for people who are non-smokers, in good health, and at or near their target weight, but otherwise want a painless and quick way to remove stubborn fat from certain areas of their body. Scheduling a personal consultation with Dr. Peters is the best way to determine your candidacy for this procedure and learn more about the recovery process and the results you can expect.
How does VASER® Lipo work?
At the start of the VASER® Lipo procedure, the fatty layer of the target area is injected with a tumescent fluid, which is a mixture of epinephrine, saline, and lidocaine, to facilitate the removal of fat and reduce post-op bruising and pain. The VASER® Lipo probe then distributes high-energy ultrasonic vibrations to liquefy the fatty layer and gently suction it away from the body. The surrounding connective tissues are left undamaged, allowing for faster healing, less pain, and smoother contours in the treatment area in comparison to traditional liposuction procedures.
Unleash Your Inner Six-Pack
Reveal muscle tone and definition you never knew you had in the abdominal area and other muscle groups with VASER Hi-Def®. This state-of-the-art liposculpting procedure kicks VASER® Lipo up a notch by precisely removing overlying fat from target muscle groups, giving the muscles a chiseled, athletic, and more defined appearance.
What Is VASER® Lipo Hi Def™?
Traditional liposuction procedures were designed to suction away smaller areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. The invasive nature of these procedures left patients with long recovery periods, mainly due to the resulting trauma to the surrounding skin, nerves, and connective tissues in the treatment zone. Advanced laser liposculpting procedures, such as VASER® Lipo Hi Def™, are evidence of how far body contouring treatments have come, and Dr. Peters uses this breakthrough procedure to remove unsightly fat deposits and enhance the natural curves and contours of the body. VASER® Lipo Hi Def™ is highly effective at treating areas of the body commonly treated with traditional liposuction treatments, such as the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen, as well as more sensitive areas that were typically unsuitable for treatment with traditional liposuction techniques, such as the arms, neck, and chest.
What happens after liposuction?
Recovery times following VASER® Lipo varies depending on the extensiveness of the treatment and the amount of fat removed from the patient, but many patients often resume their normal daily routine within two to three days. Residual postoperative swelling will subside, and your skin will shrink down to fit the contours of your new shape over the course of three weeks. The final results of the procedure will gradually become more apparent over the course of three to six months.
How is VASER® Lipo different from traditional liposuction?
VASER® Lipo is a modern alternative to traditional liposuction treatments that selectively removes stubborn fat to contour the body with precision.
Unlike traditional liposuction techniques, VASER® Lipo only removes fat cells in the treatment area, leaving other important tissues, such as blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissues, undamaged. This innovative bodysculpting technology preserves the surrounding tissues in the treatment area to promote smoother results and faster healing.
What areas of the body can be treated via VASER® Lipo?
Dr. Peters has experienced great success in treating the following areas with VASER® Lipo:
- Jowls, chin, and neck
- Abdomen, hips, and love handles
- Male and female breast tissue
- Back, buttocks, and thighs
- Knees, calves, and ankles
Will my results from VASER® Lipo be permanent?
Once fat cells are removed with VASER® Lipo they are gone for good, but while the results are long-lasting, they aren't exactly permanent. Pregnancy, the natural aging process, and significant fluctuations in your weight could compromise your results, but assuming a healthy lifestyle and maintaining your target weight is the best way to prolong your results.
