Liposuction is a surgical procedure to remove unwanted fat deposits, usually located in the hips, thighs, tummy and underside of the arms.
Vaser liposuction is a technique that uses ultrasound technology to target fat cells, breaking them down selectively to make them easier to extract. What distinguishes the Vaser lipo procedure is its ability to differentiate fatty tissue from other important structures – such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. The liquefied fat can be removed with a needle, reducing damage to nearby tissues.

Do you lose weight after vaser lipo?
Vaser liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that is designed to remove stubborn pockets of fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, or arms. While vaser liposuction can help to improve the appearance of the treated area, it is not intended as a weight loss solution.
The amount of weight that a person may lose as a result of vaser liposuction can vary depending on the individual and the amount of fat that is removed. However, it is important to note that vaser liposuction is not a weight loss procedure and should not be used as a substitute for a healthy diet and exercise.
After vaser liposuction, patients may experience some weight loss due to the removal of fat from the treated area. However, the amount of weight loss is typically minimal and may not be noticeable on a scale. It is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine after vaser liposuction to help maintain the results and prevent future weight gain.
Does liposuction leave loose skin?
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgical procedure that is designed to remove excess fat from specific areas of the body. While it is generally considered safe and effective, there is a risk of loose skin after the procedure, particularly if a large amount of fat is removed or if the patient has poor skin elasticity.
The amount of loose skin that a person may experience after liposuction can vary depending on the individual and the extent of the procedure. In most cases, the skin may contract and tighten on its own after the fat is removed. However, in other cases, the skin may be left loose and saggy, particularly in areas where large amounts of fat were removed.
To minimize the risk of loose skin after liposuction, it is important to choose an experienced surgeon who can assess your individual situation and recommend the best course of treatment. In some cases, a combination of liposuction and skin-tightening procedures such as a tummy tuck or thigh lift may be recommended to achieve the desired results.
In addition, maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine after liposuction can help to promote skin elasticity and minimize the risk of loose skin. It’s important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of liposuction with your surgeon before undergoing the procedure to ensure that you have a full understanding of what to expect.
What BMI do you need to be?
BMI (Body Mass Index) is one of the factors that doctors consider when determining if a patient is a good candidate for vaser liposuction. Many surgeons prefer that patients have a BMI of less than 32 before undergoing vaser liposuction. This is because individuals with a BMI over 30-32 are generally considered to be obese or significantly overweight, which can increase the risks of the procedure, including bleeding, infection, and poor healing.
It’s important to note that BMI is just one factor that is considered when evaluating a patient’s suitability for vaser liposuction. Other factors, such as overall health, medical history, and lifestyle habits, will also be taken into account. It’s important to discuss your individual situation with a qualified and experienced surgeon to determine if vaser liposuction is a good option for you.
Should you try to lose weight before vaser lipo?
It is generally recommended that patients be at or near their ideal weight before undergoing liposuction. This is because liposuction is a body contouring procedure that is designed to remove stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, rather than a weight loss procedure.
Liposuction can help to improve the overall shape and contour of the body, but it is not intended as a substitute for weight loss. In fact, liposuction may not provide satisfactory results if a patient is significantly overweight, as the procedure is not designed to remove large volumes of fat.
In addition, losing weight before liposuction can help to improve the overall safety and effectiveness of the procedure. Patients who are at or near their ideal weight are generally at a lower risk of complications such as bleeding, infection, or poor healing. That being said, it’s important to discuss your individual situation with a qualified and experienced surgeon to determine the best course of action. Your surgeon may recommend that you try to lose weight through diet and exercise before undergoing liposuction, or they may recommend a combination of liposuction and other procedures to achieve the desired results.
Does vaser liposuction leave scars?
Vaser liposuction is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that typically results in minimal scarring compared to traditional liposuction or more invasive surgeries techniques. The incisions used for vaser liposuction are very small, typically less than a quarter of an inch, and are strategically placed in inconspicuous areas to minimize visible scarring.
After the procedure, patients may experience some bruising, swelling, and tenderness in the treated areas. However, these symptoms typically subside within a few weeks, and patients can usually return to their normal activities within a few days.
While vaser liposuction typically results in minimal scarring, it’s important to note that individual results may vary. Some patients may experience more noticeable scarring than others, depending on factors such as their skin type, the extent of the procedure, and their body’s natural healing response.
To minimize the risk of scarring after vaser liposuction, it’s important to choose an experienced surgeon who can assess your individual situation and recommend the best course of treatment. In addition, following post-operative care instructions and avoiding smoking and other activities that can slow the healing process can also help to promote optimal healing and minimize scarring.
