Your Top 10 FAQs Answered: VASER® Liposuction Explained by Premier Surgical Plastic Surgery in Knoxville

Elevating the standard of body contouring in Knoxville, Premier Surgical Plastic Surgery offers VASER® Liposuction, a ground-breaking technique redefining the path to achieving desired aesthetic results. As you navigate your options for cosmetic enhancement, it’s common to have questions.

To guide you through the decision-making process, we’ve compiled a list of the top 10 frequently asked questions about VASER® Liposuction.



1. What is VASER® Liposuction?

VASER® Liposuction is an advanced body contouring procedure that uses ultrasound technology to selectively break down and remove fat deposits from targeted areas of the body. This technique offers precise results with minimal trauma to surrounding tissues.

2. How does VASER® Liposuction differ from Traditional Liposuction?

VASER® Liposuction stands apart from traditional liposuction methods due to its innovative approach to fat removal. Unlike traditional liposuction, which typically involves manually breaking up fat deposits using a cannula, VASER® Liposuction utilizes ultrasound technology to selectively target and emulsify fat cells. This advanced technique allows for more precise and efficient fat removal while minimizing trauma to surrounding tissues. Additionally, VASER® Liposuction offers the added benefit of stimulating collagen production in the skin, leading to improved skin tightening and contouring in treated areas. Compared to traditional liposuction, VASER® Liposuction often results in less discomfort, reduced swelling, and a faster recovery time for patients. Overall, VASER® Liposuction represents a significant advancement in body contouring technology, providing patients with a safer, more effective, and more comfortable alternative to traditional liposuction procedures.

3. Am I a good candidate for VASER® Liposuction?

Ideal candidates for VASER® Liposuction are individuals who are at or near their target weight but have stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. A consultation with our experienced plastic surgeon, Dr. David Lo can help determine if VASER® Liposuction is right for you.

4. What areas of the body can be treated with VASER® Liposuction?

VASER® Liposuction can be used to treat a variety of areas, including the abdomen, thighs, hips, buttocks, arms, back, and chin. It is a versatile procedure that can address multiple areas of concern in a single session.

5. Is VASER® Liposuction painful?

While some discomfort can be expected during and after the procedure, VASER® Liposuction is generally well-tolerated by patients. Our team takes measures to ensure your comfort throughout the process, including the use of local anesthesia and sedation if needed.

6. What is the recovery like after VASER® Liposuction?

Recovery time can vary depending on the extent of the treatment and individual healing factors. Most patients can expect some swelling and bruising in the treated areas, but these symptoms typically subside within a few weeks. You may be advised to wear compression garments to support the healing process.

7. When will I see results from VASER® Liposuction?

While some initial results may be visible immediately after the procedure, final results typically become apparent as swelling resolves and the body adjusts to its new contours. This process can take several weeks to months, but patients can enjoy long-lasting results with proper maintenance.

8. Are the results of VASER® Liposuction permanent?

Yes, the fat cells removed during VASER® Liposuction are permanently eliminated from the body. However, it’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to prevent new fat accumulation in treated areas.

9. What are the risks associated with VASER® Liposuction?

Like any surgical procedure, VASER® Liposuction carries some risks, including infection, bleeding, and changes in sensation. Our team takes every precaution to minimize these risks and ensure your safety throughout the process.

10. Can VASER® Liposuction be used for both men and women?

Absolutely! VASER® Liposuction is suitable for both men and women seeking to enhance their body contours. Men aiming for chiseled six-pack abs and women looking to sculpt their bodies by targeting stubborn fat deposits can benefit from VASER® Liposuction. VASER® Liposuction is highly effective for treating gynecomastia in men and can also help women target a wide range of areas including hips, buttocks, cheeks, chin, neck, legs, arms, chest, inner knees, waist, inner and outer thighs and tummy. Through the use of ultrasound waves, VASER® Liposuction melts away excess fat in targeted areas, followed by removal and skin tightening, resulting in a more defined and toned physique for both men and women.
