Liposuction isn't a weight loss solution. You will see a remarkable decrease in your problem areas that typically don't respond well to exercise and diet changes, but it is important that you don't rely completely on the surgical procedure for weight loss or management. If you are healthy enough for traditional liposuction, you are probably a great candidate for VASERlipo® as well. Those most likely to benefit from VASERlipo® fit the following criteria:
- Are in good overall health
- Remain within 20 pounds of their goal weight
- Have realistic ideas about the outcome of the surgery
- Eat a healthy diet and maintain an exercise routine
Much like traditional liposuction, VASERlipo® requires the use of small incisions and a fat suctioning device called a cannula. At the time of the surgical procedure, the fat cells are treated with state-of-the-art ultrasound energy and Dr. Walters then removes them from the body through a gentle suction process. The surrounding tissues are left intact, often resulting in less pain, swelling, and downtime than traditional liposuction. VASERlipo® may also offer enhanced skin retraction and dramatic contouring compared to traditional liposuction.
What to Expect
Even though the VASERlipo® surgery is minimally invasive, the anesthesia used for your VASERlipo® procedure will depend upon the areas to be treated. The procedure will last about an hour per area. Upon the completion of the surgery, you should prepare for a bit of swelling, bruising, and discomfort. These side effects are standard and will most likely fade in the coming weeks. Full results will be obvious within about six weeks following surgery.
