If you’re seeking a tighter, slimmer physique or simply have one or two areas of stubborn fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, VASERlipo may be the body sculpting solution you need. VASERlipo is an ultrasound-assisted liposuction treatment that can eliminate fat, while subtly tightening the skin for a more toned appearance. Visit My Houston Surgeons, the leading body contouring specialists in Houston and The Woodlands to take advantage of this next generation treatment that slims and tightens while revealing muscle tone.
How Does VASERlipo Work?
VASERlipo works by sending pulsating ultrasound energy into fat cells to break them apart and then suction them out of the body. VASERlipo permanently targets, destroys and removes fat from the body in a procedure that is gentler and more precise than traditional liposuction due to its unique ability to disconnect fat from underlying muscles without damaging the surrounding tissues.
Your VASERlipo Procedure
During your VASERlipo procedure, you’ll be sedated. Your surgeon will then use the VASERlipo wand to send pulses of ultrasound energy into the fat cells before using gentle suction to remove them from the body with a cannula.
Following a VASERlipo procedure, you may experience some mild swelling and bruising in the treated areas. You’ll wear a compression garment for several weeks after the procedure to help your body adapt to its new shape. You can expect to see your final results in roughly 3 to 6 months.
Your VASERlipo results are permanent, however, can and will change with your body due to aging and weight gain. That’s why maintaining a healthy diet and exercise regimen is critical to ensuring long-term results.
