Vaser High-Definition Liposuction - FAQs

Have you wanted to improve the shape of your body, but do not know how to go about doing it? In Miami, FL where sculpted figures are seen at every turn, it’s no secret why so many men and women seek to get a little “assistance” with their figures. Vaser liposuction is a branch of liposuction that focuses on removing persistent fat deposits and helps improve the shape and contour of your body and the overall aesthetic appeal of a certain area. This procedure can help you lose a few inches off your body, especially around your thighs, waist, and hips. It is popular because unlike traditional liposuction, which focuses solely on fat removal, Vaser adds sculpting and definition to your body.

You probably have a lot of questions and we are here to answer them!

Am I a Candidate?
Vaser liposuction is great for Miami area men and women who are already at a healthy weight and have healthy skin laxity. This procedure is here to help you get a more contoured body, not to help you lose weight. You also want to maintain a healthy lifestyle, which can include exercising and eating well. If you do not have or maintain a healthy lifestyle, you might not get or keep your desired results and it could add risks for complications during the procedure. Tell us your medical history or if you are taking any medications, so we can figure out if you are a good candidate for Vaser liposuction. This includes smoking and tobacco use, which would need to be stopped to see optimal results.

Who Is Best To Perform Vaser High-Def Lipo?
A board-certified plastic surgeon is your first line of defense to attain great results with this treatment. A plastic surgeon who has the reputation for outstanding outcomes, as well as the training and experience in doing high-def lipo will help ensure you get the results you desire. You will want to find someone that does Vaser liposuction frequently. Schedule a consultation with them and make sure they meet your standards. Ask questions and voice your concerns. The right plastic surgeon will spend time studying your anatomy and assess if you are a good candidate and will be able to answer all of your questions thoroughly.

Is It Expensive?
Vaser high-def liposuction requires technology and surgeon skill to get great, sculpted outcomes. Because of this unique blend, on average, this procedure costs around $7,000, but that can also depend on the area you are treating and your ultimate goals. Also, keep in mind that since this is a cosmetic procedure, it is generally not covered by insurance. To compensate for this, a lot of surgeons provide payment plans or financing. Ask the office if they provide either. This can dictate whether you need to find another surgeon.

What Happens During the Procedure?
In our Miami, FL office, we use the state-of-the-art Vaser high-def lipo system, which uses ultrasound technology to break down fat cells by emitting ultrasonic frequency waves. Once that is done, the area is massaged and sculpted by removing the fat through a suction process and repositioning some of the internal tissue and remaining fat to attain that sculpted look. After the procedure, which is generally performed with some level of sedation, you will be monitored closely and you will be able to leave our office the same day to recuperate at home.

What Happens After the Procedure?
After the procedure, you may be slightly red, bruised, and feel some moderate discomfort, but this will only last for a few short days. You should take this time off from work so you can recover. You will be given a compression garment after the procedure that should be worn for about 4-6 weeks. After a couple weeks, you will need to come back in to get a lymphatic drainage massage. Within a couple of months after the procedure, you will start seeing some skin tightening, sculpting, and a “contoured” and defined look. We generally tell patients it takes several months for the best results to show themselves.

What Are the Benefits of Vaser Liposuction?
Vaser liposuction offers a variety of benefits, including:

  • The procedure has very little pain associated with it
  • The procedure has a shorter recovery time than most cosmetic surgeries, so you will be able to return to your daily routine sooner than later
  • The procedure is minimally invasive, so you will not have any large scars
  • The procedure leaves you with less bruising and swelling than other cosmetic procedures
  • The procedure focuses on fat cells, so it avoids contact with nearby nerves and connecting tissue
  • The procedure works on a variety of places, including your arms, stomach, back, and legs
  • The procedure helps shape your body to give you your ideal results

What Are the Risks of Vaser Liposuction?
With any cosmetic procedure, there are some risks to consider. Aside from injury that can be made to the internal tissue and skin, risk such as bleeding and infection are possible if a surgeon does not have the proper experience to perform this treatment. With that said, surgeon experience is one of the most important factors when undergoing high-definition liposuction. In addition, having a skill set and artistic eye for body sculpting is a must. There are unique contours and shadows that reveal a sculpted look and this is something to consider when choosing your doctor.

Check their credentials and be sure to view as many before-and-after photos as you can, as well as read patient reviews who have undergone Vaser high-definition liposuction.
