Discover a More Confident You with Vaser Liposuction

Utilizing the power of ultrasound waves, Vaser Liposuction breaks down and loosens unwanted fatty deposits, which are then easily suctioned away via a cannula during the procedure. Vaser Liposuction not only eliminates extra fat from specific parts of your body, but it also can enhance your skin tone and texture in the treated areas. The technology utilizes ultrasound energy to tighten the surrounding tissue, resulting in a more proportionate appearance.

Vaser Liposuction: Is it the Best Option for You?

The right candidate for Vaser Liposuction should be someone who:

  • Is at or near their ideal body weight but has localized areas of stubborn fat that they cannot get rid of through diet and exercise alone.
  • Has good skin elasticity, which enables the skin to contract and adjust to the new shape after fat removal is done.
  • Understands that Vaser liposuction is not a weight loss procedure, and therefore, should not be using it as a substitute for a healthy lifestyle but rather as a way to contour their body.
  • Does not have ongoing medical conditions, like heart disease or diabetes, which could increase the risks of the procedure.
  • Are non-smokers or should have a minimal smoking history as smoking can reduce blood flow, which could result in slower healing, infections and other serious complications.
  • Is committed to a healthy lifestyle after the procedure, including exercise and healthy eating habits, which helps maintain your results.

Explore the Procedure Details

The Vaser Liposuction procedure typically starts with the administration of general anesthesia to ensure that the patient remains comfortable throughout the surgery. Once the anesthesia has been administered, small incisions are made near the targeted areas of fat. A small cannula, or a thin tube, is then inserted through the small incisions to break down and suction out the excess fat.

Experience a Smooth Recovery

After the surgery, the patient will be required to wear compression garments to help reduce swelling and improve the contour of the treated areas. The recovery period for Vaser Liposuction is typically shorter than traditional liposuction, with most patients being able to return to their normal activities within a week or two. Also, lymphatic drainage massages are encouraged for about 10-14 days post-surgery. Patients should see visible results almost immediately, which will improve over the course of two to three months. Follow-up appointments with Dr. Rhee in NYC should be scheduled to assess the healing process and results of the procedure.

What is Vaser Liposuction?

Vaser liposuction is a procedure that uses ultrasound technology to eliminate unwanted fat cells from specific areas of your body, leaving you with a smoother and more toned appearance.

Who is an ideal candidate for this procedure?

Ideal candidates are those who have healthy skin elasticity and relatively good physical health with areas of localized fat deposits that cannot be eliminated through diet or exercise.

How long does it take to recover after a Vaser liposuction procedure?

Recovery time will vary depending on how much fat was removed and the individual’s healing ability, but typically patients can return to work within two to three days after the procedure.

Are there any risks associated with this type of surgery?

Like any surgical procedure, there are some potential risks associated with Vaser Liposuction, such as infection at incision sites, irregular contours, scarring, temporary numbness in treated areas, and bleeding during or after surgery. Patients should discuss these risks with Dr. Rhee during consultation.
