Tummy tuck procedures are still one of the most popular surgeries performed in this country for individuals struggling with excess fat or skin in their abdominal area. This is a common issue for women after having a baby, or for both men and women after dramatic weight loss. Today, more progressive plastic surgeons, like Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso, are utilizing the modern technology of VASER lipo in conjunction with a tummy tuck procedure to give patients an even more redefined midsection.
Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso is a board-certified and world-renowned plastic surgeon in the Miami area. A leading expert with tummy tuck procedures and the new innovative technique of VASER liposuction, Dr. LaGrasso's state-of-the-art surgical center in Miami, FL offers his patients every available option to reach their aesthetic goals. After a thorough consultation and careful consideration, Dr. LaGrasso will determine the best course of action and devise a detailed surgical plan for each of his patients. If you are considering a tummy tuck, here is some helpful information on combining it with VASER liposuction to get even better results.
What exactly is VASER Liposuction?
This innovative new technology in the liposuction category is an ultrasound-assisted technique that suctions specific target areas to remove excess fat from around muscle groups to enhance the visibility of lean muscles without damaging other body tissues. This ultrasound technology allows an experienced plastic surgeon, like Dr. LaGrasso, to avoid healthy tissues or nerve endings in the abdominal area that might be at risk with traditional liposuction. This new generation of liposuction can allow plastic surgeons to target fat in certain areas that may have been avoided in the past due to higher risks. VASER liposuction also offers an easier recovery due to less swelling and bruising versus traditional lipo.
Why do you need liposuction with a tummy tuck?
The benefits of a tummy tuck can be life-changing for Miami, FL area men and women. Excess, sagging skin in the stomach area can make individuals self-conscious about how they look and no amount of exercise in some cases can help. In most cases, when patients undergo a tummy tuck procedure, some form of liposuction is used to extract stubborn pockets of fat from the abdominal area to further contour the area. The combination of a tummy tuck and VASER lipo are a popular solution to remove excess fat and loose skin to reveal a tighter, more refined area.
The right combination
The combined duo of a tummy tuck and VASER lipo can give patients far better results than if they were to have the procedures on their own. A tummy tuck further tones up the midsection area and eliminates loose, sagging skin, while the VASER liposuction sculpts and removes excess fat from the target area. Together these two cosmetic procedures can give individuals the aesthetic hope they wanted with their stomach, so they feel better about how they look. These two techniques enhance and complement each other by further contouring the torso to be firmer and tighter. By using VASER lipo versus traditional liposuction with a tummy tuck, healthy abdominal tissue can be avoided so patients endure less swelling and bruising and the recovery time is lessened.
The VASER liposuction difference
In certain cases, some individuals can't achieve a toned, tighter midsection. A tummy tuck combined with the advanced technology of ultrasound-assisted liposuction offers patients an excellent solution. Loose, sagging skin or weakened abdominal muscles can occur due to pregnancy or dramatic weight loss which leaves skin unable to "bounce back". Spotty fat deposits can leave individuals concerned about a pesky pouch or stubborn love handles. Treating all these issues can be resolved with a VASER lipo and tummy tuck combination so you can have a toned, shapely appearance.
Surgical care is key
As with any cosmetic procedure, there are certain risks everyone should consider. A surgeon's experience and qualifications are the most important factors when undergoing any type of cosmetic procedure especially a tummy tuck involving high-definition liposuction. These procedures require a certain surgical skill set along with a creative eye for this body sculpting duo. Choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. LaGrasso, will ensure your entire body sculpting experience will have the best possible outcome.
