VASER Liposuction

Treatments Tailored to Your Needs and Goals

Liposuction is far from a one-size-fits-all procedure, but it is often presented that way. Oftentimes, men and women seeking liposuction in Santa Barbara won’t take the time to research their plastic surgeon because they feel like it’s a straightforward procedure that doesn’t take a lot of skill or training. This could not be further from the truth.

Though liposuction for men and women is often treated like a run-of-the-mill procedure, it can and should be highly customized to each individual who chooses it. There are a wide variety of male and female liposuction procedures, and which procedure you choose can have a major impact upon your final results.

Unfortunately, though liposuction is the most common cosmetic procedure in the United States, it has one of the highest dissatisfaction rates precisely because it is frequently not customized to the specific body types, age, activity levels, and wishes of the people who seek it. In my Santa Barbara practice, I hope to remedy that situation.

I have been performing liposuction for women and men since 1994. In my years of experience, I have discovered that in order to achieve the best results, liposuction takes an artful hand and a detailed eye. That’s part of why I like to take the time to get to know each of my Santa Barbara clients individually before working with them. Every person has their own reasons for seeking cosmetic procedures, and they have their own level of comfort talking about their bodies. By taking the time to let my patients get comfortable with me, I’m better able to provide customized treatment plans that are precisely in line with my Santa Barbara clients true wishes.

Types of Liposuction

Current modalities of female and male liposuction include smart lipo, ultrasound-assisted lipo, VASER liposuction, power-assisted lipo, and high-def lipo. Which procedure is right for you depends upon factors such as the size of the area which you’d like addressed, your personal expectations, age, activity level, and required recovery time.

In the hands of a highly trained Santa Barbara plastic surgeon, liposuction can be incredibly effective. VASER lipo, for example, can be used to not just remove troublesome fat deposits but actually enhance the appearance of the muscles underneath the fat, creating a more sculpted and chiseled look. This procedure is particularly popular among male liposuction patients.


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.

VASER lipo in Los Angeles

In Venice Beach and Santa Monica, liposuction is among the most popular cosmetic procedures. Liposuction is a great choice for people who have a little bit of trouble fat that won’t go away with diet and exercise alone. Lipo has come a long way over the last few decades, and there are now a number of great options for different types of liposuction procedures.

In my practice, I prefer VASER liposuction, It provides amazing body contouring results that can help you feel younger and more confident in your own skin. The process can sometimes be done with just local anesthesia and is designed to reduce pain and tissue damage. I have a great deal of experience with this particular type of liposuction, and I believe that it provides the best results for my patients.

The VASER liposuction process begins with the surgeon filling the area to be treated with a saline solution that helps wet and numb the area. The solution also shrinks blood vessels, helping to minimize damage to vessels and surrounding tissues.

Once the solution is in place, the surgeon uses a small probe to emit low doses of ultrasonic energy which break up fat and emulsify it. This makes it much easier to separate fat from surrounding tissues without doing any damage to those tissues. The emulsified fat is then extracted with liposuction tubes.

The whole process is minimally invasive and can take as little as an hour to complete. Because VASER liposuction is so precise, it can be used in areas of the body like the neck, the upper arms, chin, and the inner thighs. It can also be used to remove fat from the abdomen, buttocks, hips, back, and from men’s chests.

One of the greatest benefits of VASER liposuction over other types of liposuction is that it can be used to actually enhance lines of definition and tone. If you’ve got a six-pack hiding under a little bit of excess flab, VASER lipo can do away with the fat and highlight the muscle beneath.

Frequently Asked Questions(F. A. Q.)

How much does Vaser Liposuction cost?

In contrast to the traditional method, Vaser lipo uses a probe that transmits ultrasound energy that breaks up the fat under the skin. The surrounding tissues remain intact because Vaser doesn't require the cannula to break down the fat, whose movement in traditional liposuction can cause trauma to the tissues.

How long does Vaser Liposuction last?

The results can last for years and are only improved with diet and exercise. Although less likely to regain weight in areas where you have received liposuction, fat will return to these areas much more slowly following the procedure.

Is Vaser Liposuction safe?

Vaser Liposuction uses ultrasound energy to break up and emulsify fat, with minimal damage to the surrounding tissue.

Does Vaser Liposuction reduce cellulite?

Vaser liposuction breaks down and removes fat deposits while enhancing the appearance of the muscles, creating a more sculpted and chiseled look.
