VASER liposuction Los Angeles

Advantages of VASER Liposuction

At my Venice plastic surgery practice, I specialize in an innovative treatment called VASER liposuction. VASER lipo has a lot of great advantages over other forms of tumescent liposuction, and I’m a big believer in its lasting and customizable results. In my opinion, VASER lipo provides results that simply can’t be matched by other body contouring procedures.

VASER liposuction uses ultrasound-assisted technology to melt away fat in a highly targeted manner. Other forms of liposuction like laser liposuction are much less targeted. As a result, these forms of lipo will burn and scar the tissue surrounding fat. This lack of precision also means that the fat that’s removed is completely pulverized by laser lipo procedures.

In many cases, that isn’t a big deal, but if you are hoping to use the fat removed during your liposuction procedure for dermal fillers in your face or elsewhere in your body, that isn’t possible with laser liposuction. With VASER lipo, contrarily, the fat removed is left in perfect condition for fat transfers.

VASER liposuction is also one of the safest and most advanced methods of lipo. Complications and risks are minimal with this procedure, particularly if you are a good candidate for liposuction in general. (The best candidates for liposuction are adults who are within 25 pounds of their ideal body weight, who don’t smoke and who are in good health.)

Another great benefit of VASER lipo is that it can be used to not just melt away fat but actually enhance lines of definition throughout your body. For example, male patients can use VASER lipo on their abdomens to get rid of those last few pounds of hard to burn fat and also enhance their six packs. Likewise, women can use VASER liposuction to create long and lean tone on their arms, thighs, and stomachs.

After establishing a successful plastic surgery practice on the East Coast and accumulating over 20 years of experience, I decided to open a new office in Venice Beach. I'm thrilled to be here and cannot wait to work with new patients in Los Angeles. In my spare time, you’re most likely to find me at the yoga studio. I’m an avid yoga practitioner, and recently completed my 200-hour teacher training through the Yoga Alliance. I also enjoy surfing, cycling, and spending time with my two sons.
