VASER® High Definition Liposculpture
When diet and exercise fail to yield the results you desire, you may find yourself becoming disheartened and fed up. You’ve probably heard about traditional liposuction but might have reservations about the possibility of inconsistent results. You want to eliminate your stubborn fat deposits and have the peace of mind that your procedure will help you achieve a slimmer, more toned physique. VASERlipo® performed by Dr. Tran in Westminster removes unwanted fat in addition to tightening the overlying skin and toning your treatment areas. In addition, High Definition Liposculpture creates and enhances the natural muscular anatomy by using deep, superficial, and transitioning liposuction techniques to achieve a very toned appearance such as six-pack abs.
Benefits of VASER® High Definition Liposculpture
Using ultrasonic waves to separate fats cells while preserving vital tissues, specific areas of the body can be targeted. VASER® High Definition Liposculpture can pinpoint unwanted fat in the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, chest, and neck.
Skin laxity after traditional liposuction can lead to unsatisfactory results. VASER® liposuction helps the skin contract with the newly formed contours beneath the surface, resulting in permanent fat removal and tighter, more youthful skin.
VASERlipo® utilizes a special technique known as LipoSelection®, which allows us to tailor the treatment to each patient. The ultrasonic technology enables us to precisely treat targeted areas and provide predictable, customized contouring results.
Your VASER® High Definition Liposculpture Procedure
Patients seeking High Definition Liposculpture should be in good general health and have realistic expectations about their results. While this treatment is often able to achieve dramatic results, the best candidates are close to their ideal weight and have good overall skin elasticity.
The procedure can be performed using local anesthesia, but general anesthesia is required for more extensive fat removal. For minimal treatment areas, the process takes one hour. Incisions are made at the treatment site, and a cannula is inserted to vacuum suction out the unwanted fat. The ultrasound technology loosens the fat for easier removal.
High Definition Liposculpting
For High Definition Liposculpting, superficial layers are also targeted to create skin tightening to reveal and enhance the underlying musculature. The transition zones are also carefully sculpted to create a more athletic look. This technique follows four general steps.
- Marking: The fat deposits on the body that are to be removed are physically marked
- Deep Layer Liposculpture: Fat is aspirated from treatment areas while the patient is under anesthesia
- Superficial Liposculpture: Less challenging because the deep layer has already been prepped
- Fat Grafting: Fat is harvested and reinjected into the patient to enhance contours with volume
Postoperative Concerns After VASER® High Definition Liposculpture
Immediately following your procedure, you will likely experience some mild bruising, redness, and swelling. You will be asked to wear a compression garment for the first six weeks to help achieve ideal results. You should avoid intense physical activity for two to three weeks following your procedure and should only resume your usual activities with doctor approval.
The incisions created during a VASER® High Definition Liposculpture procedure are tiny and placed in inconspicuous locations. If any scarring develops, it will likely fade with time. Following all aftercare instructions can also help minimize the appearance of scars.
The cost of your VASER® High Definition Liposculpture treatment will depend on various factors, such as the number of areas being treated, the desired extent of correction, anesthesia fees, and facility fees. You will be provided with an accurate cost estimate during your initial consultation.
While some bruising, swelling, and discomfort can be expected following your VASER® High Definition Liposculpture procedure, these side effects should subside within a couple of weeks. Taking prescription medication and wearing the recommended compression garments during recovery can help alleviate postoperative pain.
