Body Contouring with VASERlipo®
If you are frustrated by stubborn fat deposits, advanced VASERlipo® technology can help you achieve the figure you desire. By utilizing ultrasound waves to precisely target fat cells for minimally invasive liposuction, VASERlipo® typically requires a shorter recovery time and is less painful than other body contouring procedures. Dr. Conrado Trapero employs VASER® technology to perform high definition liposuction on both men and women in Mazatlán, Mexico. At Clínica Trapero, we can use this advanced body contouring method to sculpt even the most delicate areas of your body, such as the chin and neck. Dr. Trapero can also combine this treatment with other facial plastic surgery procedures, such as eyelid lifts, for a more dramatic enhancement.
What Is VASERlipo®?
This minimally invasive liposuction technique treats areas of fat with ultrasound energy, gently removing fat cells with a small tube, or cannula. The VASERlipo® process is designed to be as gentle as possible on the body while still producing impressive results. By minimizing tissue injury, you can enjoy a shorter recovery time with less bruising and post-procedure discomfort than traditional liposuction. Dr. Trapero can use this method to target large areas, such as the hips or upper part of the buttocks, as well as smaller, more delicate areas of the face, chin, and neck.
Choosing between Traditional and VASERlipo®
Patients interested in any form of liposuction should be close to their target weight, as this procedure does not serve as a weight loss treatment. Since your skin will settle against your muscular structure once the fat tissue is removed, VASERlipo® is especially effective for patients who have muscle definition in the areas they want to treat. Both men and women can benefit from this treatment.
Typically, VASERlipo® is used to treat smaller fat deposits. If you wish to treat a larger area, you may achieve better results with traditional liposuction. You can discuss your cosmetic goals and expectations with Dr. Trapero during an initial consultation. During this appointment, he can determine the optimal body contouring procedure for you.
Understanding VASERlipo® Treatment
First, Dr. Trapero will inject a special saline solution into the target area to shrink blood vessels and numb surrounding tissue. The fluid will also expand the area, making it easier to remove the fat cells. He will then insert the VASERlipo® ultrasound probes which will loosen the fat cells without damaging surrounding tissues. Once the fat cells are loosened, they mix with the saline and are easily removed from the body using the special cannulas.
If you wish to achieve more dramatic results, Dr. Trapero can combine high definition liposuction with other procedures, such as blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, or chin implants.
A typical VASERlipo® treatment with Dr. Trapero lasts about four hours, though your treatment time will depend on the size of the area targeted. Since the cannula is much smaller than the one used for traditional liposuction, Dr. Trapero prefers to take his time and carefully select the treatment areas for highly defined results. If you wish to achieve more dramatic results, Dr. Trapero can combine high definition liposuction with other procedures, such as blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, or chin implants.
