Vaser Liposuction Q & A

What is VASERlipo?

Vaser liposuction is a noninvasive cosmetic treatment that uses ultrasound technology to safely eradicate pesky pockets of fat. This state-of-the-art technology uses ultrasonic frequencies to target and destroy fat cells. After breaking down your fat cells, your Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery provider uses a suction tool to remove them completely. 

Am I a good candidate for VASERlipo?

To determine if you’re a candidate for VASERlipo, make an appointment with the team at The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery. Following a physical exam, review of your medical history, and discussion of your goals for treatment, the team can make recommendations that align with your individual needs. 

That said, if you’re at or around your ideal weight, but are unable to eradicate pesky pockets of fat via traditional means like diet and exercise, you’re probably a good candidate for treatment.

What issues can VASERlipo address?

Vaser liposuction is incredibly versatile. The team at The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery regularly uses it to:

  • Eliminate fat from patients’ thighs, waists, and hips
  • Tighten loose skin
  • Add some definition to muscle groups, like your abs

To be clear, VASERlipo isn’t a treatment for weight loss or obesity. Instead, it’s a type of complementary care for people who have already committed to exercising regularly and eating a healthy, balanced diet. 

What happens during VASERlipo?

Prior to VASERlipo treatment, your surgeon administers conscious sedation. This means you won’t feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure, but you can answer your surgeon’s questions and follow their instructions as necessary. 

The length of your liposuction treatment depends on the areas of your body treated and your individual goals. 

Following VASERlipo, will I need to take time off of work?

After your VASERlipo appointment, it’s perfectly normal to experience pain, swelling, and general discomfort. The team at The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery recommends taking between 4-7 days off of work or school to give your body plenty of time to recover. You’re also required to wear a special compression garment for about six weeks. 

Don’t let pesky body fat prevent you from living confidently. To request a VASERlipo consultation at The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery, call the office or click the online booking tool today.
