Who Is a Candidate for VASER Lipo?
Active, healthy individuals suffering from persistent, localized fat deposits may be good candidates for VASER lipo. Dr. Emer typically recommends that VASER lipo patients be within about 15 pounds of their ideal body weight for optimal treatment outcomes.
Long-term VASER lipo results depend on the patient staying at a healthy weight. Ideal candidates should be committed to an active lifestyle and nutritious diet in order to maintain and further enhance their new contours.
Advantages of VASER Lipo
VASER lipo is Dr. Emer’s preferred method of cosmetic fat removal for his popular 360 HD lipo treatments. Benefits of VASER lipo include:
360 HD lipo relies on VASER lipo to create chiseled abs, toned arms, and shapely contours. VASER lipo is highly effective at spot-treating stubborn fat deposits and is so precise that it can even be used in small treatment areas like the neck and chin.
Maximum skin retraction
Compared to other lipo methods, VASER lipo provides improved skin retraction, which is essential when creating athletic contours. Dr. Emer capitalizes on this advantage by pairing VASER lipo with radiofrequency skin tightening treatments.
Optimal fat harvesting
Since VASER lipo can loosen fat cells without destroying them, it is ideal for harvesting fat for fat grafting procedures, such as breast augmentation, Brazilian butt lifts (BBL), or facial sculpting.
Reduced recovery time
Because ultrasound waves liquefy fat cells and make them easier to remove, patients benefit from a quicker recovery than with traditional lipo, which can cause damage to the surrounding tissue.
VASER Lipo Procedure
Dr. Emer starts the VASER lipo procedure by marking the treatment area. In this process, he considers the underlying musculature, taking care to ensure natural post-operative movement and aesthetic final results.
You will be given anesthesia to keep you comfortable during the procedure. Many patients undergo VASER lipo while under conscious sedation. General anesthesia may be used for extensive procedures or if VASER lipo is combined with cosmetic surgery.
Dr. Emer begins the fat extraction process by injecting tumescent fluid, which helps to numb the area and loosen the fat cells. He then performs VASER lipo by delivering ultrasound energy to liquefy the fat, which he extracts with a power-assisted removal technique.
What to Expect
VASER Lipo Recovery
While VASER lipo is gentler than traditional lipo, some downtime is still required to ensure optimal healing. Plan to take some time off from your normal activities as directed by Dr. Emer. To reduce post-operative discomfort and swelling, you will need to wear compression garments for several weeks.
Dr. Emer will provide recommendations regarding supportive treatments throughout your recovery. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), intravenous (IV) therapy, lymphatic massage, and other in-office procedures can reduce inflammation, accelerate healing, and enhance treatment results.
