What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a popular cosmetic procedure in which the doctor removes fat deposits. While it can be done on its own, it is often used in body contouring procedures like tummy tucks or mommy makeovers. In such procedures, our doctor can remove fat deposits and then tighten loosened muscles and/or remove sagging skin.
While there are many different techniques, liposuction typically involves the skillful removal of fat from preselected areas. At Rios Center for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Rios loves utilizing the VASER technique, and for good reason.
What is VASER?
VASER is a technology that can be used in liposuction procedures. It is used in a form of tumescent liposuction in which the surgeon uses a cannula or probe that emits ultrasound that breaks up the fats cells. The surgeon can then vacuum out the fat cells.
VASER can be used on different parts of the body, and the surgeon may treat more than one area at a time. It all depends on the unique situation and the patient’s cosmetic goals.
VASER liposuction is designed to permanently remove fat cells. While it won’t stop the aging process, the patient may enjoy a toned and slim look for years providing they exercise and follow a healthy diet.
