Liposuction is the most commonly requested cosmetic plastic surgical procedure across the United States according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. It allows the plastic surgeon to shape the body and remove unwanted fat deposits. It can be while awake or asleep for your comfort and individual needs. With all the new minimally invasive procedures available; Velashape, Velasmooth, Refirm, Thermage, SmartLipo, Cooltouch laser lipo, to name a few, it becomes hard to decide what would work the best for you. If you have a lot of money and time and are only looking for small changes the above laser and or radiofrequency technologies alone or in combination may work for you. It takes a normal person three to six sessions (usually around a $1000 a session) to notice the best results and results vary. It is sometimes very exciting to see the skin contraction following standard liposuction combined with laser skin enhancement.
However what works more reliably and consistently at Chrysalis Cosmetics in Sacramento California is liposuction. Pictured below from Roseville California before and after Tumescent Liposuction.
The fat cells are permanently removed. The change is instant and can often be dramatic. We have added Vaser technology along with the Tumescent Liposuction to help better shape the skin and fragment the fat cells specifically. Using powerful ultrasound waves of energy the procedure can be done in as little as an hour. The added advantage of utilizing both traditional Tumescent Liposuction in combination with Vaser technology may even allow for better skin contraction in certain individuals. It is truly an exciting time to be considering body contouring. There are many options for body contouring and they may all have their place. Ask your plastic surgeon today what would work best for you. Patient pictured below from Roseville Califonria before and six weeks after tumescent vaser liposuction
