For our patients in Houston VASERlipo can offer a resounding improvement over traditional liposuction.
With VASERlipo Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Mark A. Schusterman can use the power of sound waves to loosen and remove stubborn fat pockets in the body. This technique can amplify the effects of traditional liposuction, resulting in a greater percentage of fat removed from the treatment area and more striking results.
Developed by Soltamedical, the VASERlipo ultrasonic liposuction system uses the power of ultrasonic waves to vibrate fat loose from the body during liposuction. In fact, VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. VASERlipo literally shakes the fat loose from your muscles using the power of sound waves.
This process is considered gentler than other forms of liposuction because it can separate fat from muscle without damaging healthy tissues. Dr. Schusterman’s Houston VASERlipo patients usually experience shorter recovery times and greater fat loss than traditional liposuction.
Like all forms of liposuction, VASERlipo is not a weight loss procedure. It works best on healthy patients who are near their ideal body weight, but just need a little help getting rid of those tricky spots that resist diet and exercise.
VASERlipo separates itself from traditional liposuction in both its results and its impact on the body. Because VASERlipo can target body fat without damaging other important tissues, Dr. Schusterman can use VASERlipo to precisely target those fat pockets and sculpt your perfect contours in a way that results in less pain and faster recovery times than liposuction alone.
VASERlipo can also be used to treat multiple areas of your body during the same procedure. These areas include:
Unlike other procedures where fat loss occurs weeks or months after treatment, the results of VASERlipo are visible immediately after treatment. It is gentle enough to treat delicate areas, yet powerful enough to remove more fat than traditional liposuction.
Your Houston VASERlipo Procedure
If you and Dr. Schusterman decide that VASERlipo is right for you, you will be scheduled for your procedure. On your procedure day, you will need to have someone drive you to and from your procedure, as you will be unable to drive following surgery due to the sedatives used during the procedure.
Once you are prepped for VASERlipo, Dr. Schusterman will make a small incision in the treatment area. The area will be filled with a medicated solution, as well as the ultrasonic VASERlipo probe. The probe uses ultrasound energy to vibrate the fat loose into the solution, which is then removed from the body through a gentle suction process.
The tissues are undamaged during this procedure, resulting in smooth contours with faster recovery times. As an added bonus, the ultrasound energy tends to have a limited tightening effect on the skin, further enhancing the definition of the muscles beneath.
Following your Houston VASERlipo procedure with Dr. Schusterman, you will likely experience a little bruising and swelling in the areas targeted by the treatment. Within the first 24-48 hours, you will monitor the incision site and change the dressings, and wear a compression garment to maximize the results of the procedure. Dr. Schusterman will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to further improve your results.
The healing process may initially obscure some of the results. However, as the swelling goes down and your body begins to heal and settle into its new form, your results will improve. Most patients see some results immediately, with final results settling in three to six months.
Once your final results settle, they will last as long as you continue to take care of your body. While the specific fat cells removed by VASERlipo are gone for good, your body still has fat cells in the area which will grow and shrink with your dietary choices. If you maintain your diet and exercise, the results of VASERlipo can last a lifetime.
While VASERlipo’s results are considered permanent, they do not stop the aging process. Weight fluctuations, swelling, and gravity will all still impact your body as they did before. However, you will have a more sculpted start to handle the effects of aging thanks to Dr. Schusterman and VASERlipo.
