Your Beach Season Preparation Guide: VASERlipo or Liposuction?

Summer is just around the corner, and the warm beach weather has already arrived in Florida. If you want to enjoy yourself on the beach this season but feel self-conscious about pockets of fat on your stomach, back, thighs, arms, hips, or buttocks, VASERlipo or liposuction could be your perfect solution. While a healthy diet and regular exercise are both essential for living a better life, they cannot always eliminate stubborn stores of fat. Fortunately, VASERlipo and liposuction can!

VASERlipo Destroys Fat Cells

VASERlipo is a laser-assisted process that uses thermal energy to destroy fat cells, seal off surrounding vessels, and remove excess fat with a traditional liposuction tool. This minimally invasive process is gentle yet highly effective, so you can finally have the smooth and slender contours you’ve always wanted.

During a VASERlipo procedure, your targeted area is injected with a special saline solution to numb the area and shrink local blood vessels. Small probes are inserted into the body through tiny incisions. The probes give off high ultrasound frequency energy, which shakes fat cells loose but leaves surrounding issue intact. As the fat cells shake lose, they mix with the saline solution and are removed from the body through special cannulas.

Throughout the healing process, skin retracts to generate smooth, natural-looking results. You can use VASERlipo all over your body, so there is virtually no limit to the impacts this treatment can have! Expect to see results immediately, with even more dramatic progress over the course of three to four months.

Liposuction Removes Unwanted Fat

Liposuction is a tried and true surgery that removes unwanted localized areas of fat from places like the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, knees, chin, neck, and upper arms. It isn’t a treatment for obesity, but it can deliver results if you are moderately overweight and eager to eliminate areas of fat that are unresponsive to typical weight loss methods.

This procedure is completed by inserting a suction tube into pockets of fat and essentially vacuuming fat cells away. Since fat cells cannot regrow, liposuction permanently reduces the number of fat cells in the body. Aside from wearing a compression garment and avoiding physical activity for a few days, you will be able to enjoy your results without limitation.
