FAQ

What is VASER liposuction?

VASER Liposuction is top-of-the-line advanced, ultrasound assisted technology. We use a VASER cannula prior to fat removal to break down the fat, making removal easier and less painful, as well as more precise as we’re able to better sculpt and contour the body, with less bruising, swelling, and downtime.

What is 360 Liposuction and what does it include?

Our 360 liposuction procedure includes five different areas – upper abdomen, lower abdomen, hip rolls (combining the hips and love handles), flanks, and lower back.

Do you do tummy tucks?

No, we do not do tummy tucks, but we do offer liposuction on the abdomen that provides great results for patients and using VASER also provides great skin retraction. Liposuction provides comparable results to a tummy tuck and is a less invasive approach to removing your fat and tightening your abdomen.

Will I have sagging skin afterwards?

We do not tend to see a lot of sagging skin, it varies from person to person, but we do know that VASER is also very great for skin retraction and elasticity, it even helps smooth out some scars.

I’m from out of state, is it safe to travel after a procedure?

We have a handful of patients fly in for their procedures and we’re sure to see them for a brief follow-up before they takeoff back home to ensure everything is going well and safe for travel. We are always more than happy to assist you in making arrangements and finding accommodations for your visit.

Is PRONOX gas enough during the procedure?

All of our patients do great with the PRONOX has provided during the procedure, some are even up and chatting with us throughout their surgery. We do also provide our patients with the option for a prescribed sedative and narcotic to take beforehand. We also go in to the treatment areas with numbing fuid, doing absolutely everything in our power to make sure you’re safe and comfortable for the entire duration of the procedure.

How long will I be required to wear a compression garment? And, what are the downtime and recovery times?

You will be required to wear your compression garment 24/7 for 6 weeks post-op. While results vary from person to person, our patients typically take about 2-3 days to rest and let the fluids drain, but they are typically back to work after that short period of time. You will be able to see the final results after a full 6 months.

What is included in the $500 facility fee?

The $500 facility fee covers staff, procedure supplies, post-operative garments for the patient to take home, as well as the PRONOX gas provided to the patient during the time of the procedure to provide comfort and reduce anxiety.

Can I be too big for liposuction?

You cannot ever be too big, however, there is a maximum amount of fat we are allowed to remove in one procedure, that we must abide to by law, and that is no more than 5 liters of fat.
