High Definition Body Contouring
Mansfield – Arlington – Fort Worth – Dallas
The power of ULTRASOUND ENERGY
What is VASER lipo?
VASER® liposculpting is the most advanced form of liposculpting available today that selectively and permanently removes unwanted body fat. VASER lipo is the perfect blend of surgeon’s finesse, precision, and sophistication allowing the surgeon to produce the most dynamic and high-definition body contouring results. The VASER lipo technology produces uses low-frequency ultrasound energy to emulsify fat cells and dislodge fat by the ultrasound energy through (Acoustic Streaming).
VASER lipo is considered the standard in creating high-definition and precision etching both men and women and becoming the preferred technology for fat harvesting during Brazilian Butt Lift procedures. The VASER lipo technology allows surgeons to harvest high quality, viable fat, which can then be re-injected to other parts of the body with minimal destruction of the live and viable fat cells. Dr. Thornton frequently combines VASER lipo with MicroAire Power Liposuction to provide the most dynamic body contouring results.
What body areas can be treated with VASER lipo?
VASER lipo technology enables the removal of small volumes of fat for precision contouring as well as larger volumes. With this versatility, great success can be accomplished in treating the jowls and neck, abdomen, hips, love handles, thick skin on the back, buttocks, thighs, arms, and male breast gynecomastia tissue.
Is VASER lipo safe?
Standard and expected side effects may include, but are not limited to, temporary swelling, bruising, soreness, temporary numbness, bleeding, and skin contour indurations. Potential risks from the ultrasound energy may include local skin burns but these risks are minimized with proper surgeon technique. As with other liposuction or liposculpting procedures, VASER lipo requires local or general anesthesia.
How soon will I see results?
Noticeable results will vary according to the amount of liposculpting involved and the amount of separate areas treated during the session. Most people report seeing final results in approximately 4 to 6 months.
What can I expect during my VASER lipo consult?
During your VASER lipo consultation, you will meet privately and exclusively with Dr. Michael Thornton, who will complete a thorough examination to assess location of excess fat deposits and the quality of your skin. The extent of VASER liposculpting is dependent upon the amount of fat and number of body areas treated. VASER liposculpting and other forms of liposuction techniques including, Lipotherme Laser Assisted Liposuction, MicroAire Power Assisted Liposuction, and traditional suction assisted liposuction will be discussed, as VASER liposculpting techniques are not recommended for all clients and this determination will be made on an individual basis.
Where will my VASER lipo procedure take place?
Large volume VASER liposculpting procedures including multiple areas, large volume areas, Brazilian Butt Lift fat harvesting, revision liposuction cases, or combined body procedures, are performed at Baylor Surgicare at Mansfield, a AAAHC certified out-patient surgery center, located in Mansfield, Texas, using general anesthesia as provided by board-certified anesthesiologists. On average, the VASER lipo procedure will take 3 – 4 hours to complete, depending upon the complexity of the case and the number of body zones treated. However, small volume procedures may be performed in our office using oral sedation and local tumescent anesthesia.
