Exercise After Vaser Lipo
Is recovery after vaser liposuction faster than traditional lipo? I've read that vaser liposuction causes less damage then traditional lipo. Does that mean recovery will be faster?
It depends: Vaser liposuction provides ultrasound energy to help break up the fat thereby allowing smaller cannulas and less physical trauma. This should equate in less recovery. However, each person tolerates any liposuction differently and i feel the surgeons technique and expertise is a more reliable predictor of post-op pain and recovery than the technology used. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Indicated for patients at their long-term stable weight, who present with diet and exercise resistant adipose tissue of localized areas with good quality overlying skin.

Not much: Both are liposuction techniques with ultrasound. The benefit of ultrasound is multifold: it helps melt the fat so that it can be resorbed by the body. It helps when there is a lot of fibrous tissue that can't be sucked out with regular liposuction and it may help tighten the skin. Having said all that its not that new and there is no definitive evidence that it is better than regular liposuction. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Vaser Lipo: Vaser liposuction, if done correctly and superficially, has been shown to stimulate as much skin contraction as any other modality, without serious complications such as skin burns, frequently seen with rf devices or laser energy applied to the skin. There is less bruising and discomfort. With smoother results, and minimal discomfort. It is fantastic for revision cases or fibrous areas. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Too Many.: Each one of the procedures you listed have their specific indications as well as a potential risk/complications associated with it. There is simply not enough space here to outline the information you should receive. Seek consultation with well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons, and ask to see lots of examples of their work and learn about pros/cons/risks/complications. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Is tumescent liposuction less invasive than traditional liposuction? Is tumescent liposuction less invasive and easier on the body than traditional liposuction? If so, how do they differ?
Yes: Tumescence means injecting a particular fluid to a certain quantity prior to removing the fat. Traditionally, less fluid was injected and there was more blood loss within the removed fat. Nowadays, most liposuction techniques ( regular, ultrasonic, power assisted etc) almost always use tumescence to minimize blood loss. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
As with most things: You can't make an omelette without cracking some eggs. In other words, the noninvasive procedures may have some benefit but it's nothing like what can be achieved with the actual surgical procedure. It is however noninvasive so it therefore has a significant advantage. My feeling is that a procedure which is, say one half as effective should probably cost about one half as much. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
What happens if I gain weight after having Vaser liposuction? I've heard that with traditional liposuction if you gain weight later, you'll get fat deposits in areas where you didn't have lipo. Is it the same with Vaser liposuction?
Don't gain weight: Liposuction with any modality is to help improve discrete areas of problematic fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. Liposuction is not a substitute for diet and exercise. You would have to gain significant weight after any lipo for the weight gain to appear abnormal or unnatural. The point is that you shouldn't have lipo if you can not commit to a sustainable healthy lifestyle. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Not very: You may be a good candidate for a body lift or a tummy tuck, maybe even arm skin tightening. After losing massive weight, your skin is left loose. Additional liposuction may even make this worse. Skin will not shrink up unfortunately and needs to be surgically tightened up. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Post Surgery: I always defer this question to the surgeon who performed the procedure and who will likely do a follow up examination. The surgeon knows what procedure was done, possible complications and how you are healing. Take care. ...Read more
Ab machines: The machines that work your core and abdominal muscles such as varied sit-ups, planks, etc. However, realize unless you control calorie intake with proper diet and hydration, your belly will only look bigger due to increased muscle underneath the fat. Start slow and control your diet with calorie restrictions, and then bring your workouts up to speed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is tumescent liposuction less invasive than typical liposuction? I'm looking for a way to reduce my love-handles. Is tumescent liposuction less risky than regular liposuction because local anesthetic is an option?
Absolutely!: In fact, it is strongly recommended. Laser fat removal is not a substitute for dieting. It is for removal of localized areas of fat (such as around the belly button and the "love handles") that do not go away with diet and exercise. Only after you have lost all the unwanted fat you can lose by dieting should you consider laser lipo treatment. ...Read moreSee 6 more doctor answers
Very safe: The advent of tumescent (meaning swollen or engorged) markedly increased the safety of traditional liposuction by diminshing the blood loss and increasing the amount of local anesthetic that could be delivered at one operative session. Although any surgical procedure carries risk, tumescent technique has improved the results when performed by an experienced surgeon. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Liposuction question is the removal of belly fat by liposuction ever done under local anesthetics?
Liposuction : Liposuction can be done under local anesthesia. The real question is whether or not you really want it done under local anesthesia. Generally speaking, every procedure we do can be done under local. However, general anesthesia is used by many surgeons to make the patient as comfortable as possible. Patients have absolutely no pain with general anesthesia during the procedure. They also do not remember any portion of the procedure. With local you would be fully awake for the entire procedure and may have moments where you do feel pain. Also, in order to keep you comfortable you might need a large amount of local which may approach or exceed the usual limits of that medication. In my practice, unless we are planning one small area, i recommend general anesthesia for my patients' comfort. I hope this info helps! ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
