About Vaser Lipo

VASER high-definition liposuction is a leading treatment that removes localized fat from the body to create a leaner and more defined shape with ultrasound-assisted technology. Skilled cosmetic surgeon Dr. Marcos Ikeda is thrilled to offer this innovative procedure to Houston, TX men and women. VASER hi-def allows Dr. Marcos to improve muscle definition by carefully extracting fat from specific areas of the body without harming the fat tissue left behind. Essentially, it enables him to work three-dimensionally to create a chiseled, natural look. This means that Dr. Marcos can work above, around, and in between muscle groups to enhance definition.

Ideal Candidates

VASER hi-def lipo is an excellent treatment option for both men and women who are in good general health wanting to address specific problem areas of fat. In some cases, no matter how health-conscious you are, there can be stubborn fat pockets that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. VASER can help sculpt these areas, but it is not a weight loss treatment. Candidates should already be at or near their ideal weight.

Procedure technique

Before VASER lipo can be performed, patients will need to undergo a thorough consultation with Dr. Marcos. During this time, a custom treatment plan will be created and your aesthetic goals will be discussed in detail. VASER is an outpatient procedure that is commonly performed under local anesthesia. The procedure will begin by filling the designated target areas with tumescent saline solution. From there, a small device will transmit the ultrasound energy to loosen fat cells so they can be strategically suctioned via a cannula (thin tube). Treatment times will vary, depending on the number of areas being addressed.

What to Expect

Once your treatment is complete, you will be given a compression garment to wear to help the sculpted areas form to your new shape. There will be a short period of downtime followed by 2 – 3 weeks of general recovery. Vigorous activities, such as weight lifting and running, should be postponed until Dr. Marcos has cleared you for such exercises. Many patients report seeing noticeable results after their treatment, but optimal outcomes generally occur around 3 – 4 months after your VASER session.

Frequently Asked Questions

What areas does VASER hi-def lipo address?
VASER is most commonly used to target unwanted pockets of fat in the chin, neck, abdomen, flanks, breasts, back, buttocks, thighs, and upper arms. It can essentially be used almost anywhere on the body.

How is VASER different from traditional liposuction?
VASER hi-def lipo is less invasive and offers shorter recovery periods than traditional liposuction. VASER also allows for greater skin retraction than conventional lipo. This is why Dr. Marcos prefers this treatment method for patients who wish to improve specific problem areas on their body.

How long do the results last?
Typically, most patients will notice a difference right away with optimal results appearing after about a month. These results are long-lasting if a healthy diet and exercise plan is followed as weight fluctuation can negatively alter your outcomes.
