VASER Liposuction

However, while the idea and technology may seem appealing to people seeking a safe and effective body contouring method, VASER lipo is not for everyone.

  • Those with health concerns: A person who is not healthy is at greater risk for complications compared to a healthy person. For example, risk of surgical complications would be high for individuals with a previous medical history of cardiac arrhythmias, immunodeficiency disorders, excessive bleeding, seizure disorders or a substantial history of or pulmonary emboli (blood clots in the lungs) or deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in the leg).
  • People taking certain medications on a regular basis: VASER lipo is not recommended for those who take certain medications that can increase the risk of bleeding. Such medications include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), aspirin, or anticoagulants such as Coumadin (warfarin). For example, if an individual is taking medications that impedes the metabolism of lidocaine — the local anesthetic used in this procedure – they face a high risk of bleeding unless they can stop use of their medication at least two weeks prior to the procedure.
  • Those who are overweight: Ideal VASER Lipo candidates are within 30% of their ideal weight. This is a body contouring treatment that removes stubborn fat. It is not a weight loss solution and should not be seen as such. There are limits to the amount of fat that can be safely removed via VASER lipo.
  • Do not have good skin elasticity: People with poor skin elasticity are not suitable candidates for the procedure. The skin will look smooth after the treatment only in people with good skin tone and elasticity. The skin in the treated areas may appear loose if the skin is thin and has poor elasticity.
  • Pregnant or breastfeeding women cannot have VASER lipo.

According to a study from the University of Pittsburgh, fat removed via Vaser Lipo can be used in fat transfer procedures (www.americanhealthandbeauty.com).

The VASER system preserves the viability of the fat cells, and therefore provides good results for fat transfer.
