Vaser Lipo Can Give You the Body You’ve Been Dreaming Of
At Tampa Surgical Arts in Tampa Bay, we’re proud to offer VASERlipo®, a minimally invasive procedure that can sculpt your body to the ideal contour you desire. Vaser liposculpture, also known as high definition liposculpture, is best for individuals who want to tone their stomach, love handles, thighs, upper arms, and other problem areas and have not gotten the results they wanted through regular exercise. High def lipo not only removes unwanted fat, but also sculpts, firms, and defines your body into the ideal shape for you.
Vaser Lipo Defined
Vaser lipo uses ultrasound technology to eliminate excess fat and reshape the body. The ultrasound energy will emulsify fat while leaving nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue mostly intact, making it a gentler procedure than traditional liposculpture. Additionally, while the ultrasound is frequently utilized on large areas of the body, such as the stomach, it is also effective for smaller, more delicate areas, like the neck and upper arms.
The Vaser Lipo Procedure
During the Vaser lipo procedure, our cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Manik S. Bedi, will place you under general anesthesia or local anesthesia and sedation. Then, he will make a few small incisions in the area being treated. This is where he will insert the cannula at the end of the procedure to suction out the emulsified fat.
After the incisions are made, Vaser ultrasonic probes will be inserted into fatty tissue, and high-frequency ultrasound vibration will break down the fat cells and separate them from surrounding tissue. This vibration is what disengages the fat cells as well as emulsifies them. This emulsification process is essential to the liposculpture procedure, as it liquefies the fat cells so that they can be easily suctioned out.
As the fat cells are emulsifying, Dr. Bedi will insert a small cannula into the incisions to remove the fat cells.
Benefits of Vaser Lipo
Since Vaser lipo is a minimally invasive procedure, recovery is generally easier than traditional liposculpture. You may experience minimal bruising, swelling, and discomfort and can typically resume regular activities soon after the procedure. Some of the other benefits of Vaser high def lipo:
- It will stimulate collagen, a protein that gives our skin elasticity and firmness, due to the ultrasonic waves.
- It can create dramatic contour lines to give you the six-pack abs or defined waist you’ve been desiring.
- With enhanced skin retraction, you’ll enjoy smooth and sculpted results without the need for a skin tightening procedure.
Treatment Considerations for Vaser Lipo
Every patient who comes to Tampa Surgical Arts for Vaser lipo will receive a consultation with Dr. Bedi where he will learn about your goals for the procedure to make sure they are in line with what this treatment can provide. He will examine your body to assess your problem areas and offer his opinion on whether or not high def lipo is the right treatment for you.
Post-Op Care Following Vaser Lipo
After the procedure, you’ll be given a compression garment to wear over the treatment area, as this will speed up the healing process and ensure your skin is contracting around your new body contours. It’s important to avoid strenuous activities, such as high-intensity workouts, for at least two weeks following the procedure.
As your body heals, you’ll notice results nearly immediately and those results will only improve as the months pass. Within four months, your body should have adjusted completely to the final results.
