Vaser Lipo® is an innovative high-definition fat removal procedure that gets great results with minimal invasiveness. If you have localized areas of stubborn fat that won’t respond to diet and exercise efforts, Vaser may be the ideal solution to help you slim down. Performed in our state-of-the-art plastic surgery facility, Vaser is considered a very safe alternative to traditional liposuction. The recovery is faster and there is less downtime involved, so you can return to work or other activities as soon as Dr. Aycock feels you are ready.
How Vaser Lipo Works
Vaser may be used on any area of the body that needs fat reduction, including the tummy, thighs, butt, arms, neck, and chest. With a special technique called LipoSelection®, these specific areas are targeted as ultrasonic energy breaks up fat tissue.
The precision and gentleness of these techniques ensure excess fat is removed without inflicting harm on surrounding blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. Skin appears smoother and a tightened, youthful contour is noticeable within a few months.
Steps of Vaser Lipo
First, Dr. Aycock injects a tumescent fluid with a high concentration of saline to numb the area, shrink blood vessels, and make fat tissue easier to remove. He then makes small incisions where the Vaser tube is used to loosen fat cells. The wand gently removes the excess fatty tissue using a gentle suction motion. A comfortable compression garment is worn after surgery to encourage tightening of the skin and ensure proper healing. During the recovery process, patients may experience bruising but should be able to return to normal activities in a short amount of time.
