New technology is improving the way we perform plastic surgery. At my practice serving Palo Alto, San Jose, Los Gatos, and beyond, I offer an advanced form of liposuction called VASER® Lipo. This procedure gets rid of unwanted fat using ultrasound technology to break apart fat cells, making them easier to remove. VASER Lipo is a great option for many of my patients who want to finely sculpt areas such as the arms, abdomen, thighs, neck, or chest.
How It Works
VASER is unique because it uses a minimally invasive technique called LipoSelection® to disrupt fat cells and safely remove unwanted fat. LipoSelection allows for precise targeting of fat cells for predictable and consistent results.
During treatment, a probe that emits high-frequency ultrasonic energy is inserted through small incisions. The vibration of the probe gently shakes apart fat cells. Special suction tubes are then used to remove the fat.
Benefits to You
VASER Lipo offers my patients many advantages over traditional liposuction, some of which include:
- Faster healing time
- Less bruising and swelling
- Smooth, firm results
- Precise sculpting of difficult-to-tone areas, such as the arms or neck
- Predictable, reliable results
