Liposuction is an extremely popular surgery that allows for the removal of fat in selected areas. This can help improve disproportionate body shapes and improve the body’s overall silhouette. Incisions are typically less than one centimeter and are strategically placed to be well concealed and also provide maximal access to the areas of fat to be removed. The Vaser Ultrasonic Liposuction device allows for emulsification (melting of the fat) prior to removal, and a more gentle procedure. Recovery is relatively easy as compared to more extensive procedures. Activities are limited based on discomfort, and a post surgical compression garment is worn for approximately one month.
