What Are the Weight Requirements for VASER® Liposuction?
Traditional liposuction is an invasive surgery that breaks up fat with a suction probe and removes it with a suction cup. In the process, fibrous tissues such as love handles and bra rolls are difficult to remove, and blood loss is common. VASER® Liposuction is an alternative to traditional liposuction that is great for targeting specific areas of fat without the pain or downtime.
VASER® Liposuction works by reshaping your body and outperforms traditional liposuction in small areas such as:
– Love Handles
Do I Have to Be a Certain Weight to Be Eligible for VASER® Liposuction?
Keep in mind that VASER® Liposuction is not meant to remove large amounts of fat. It is intended to spot-treat areas when traditional diet and exercise have failed to remove localized fat. For this reason, many patients wonder whether or not they are a good candidate for the treatment. Consider the information below, but always consult with your doctor first. If VASER® Liposuction isn’t right for you, there is always another viable treatment option available.
Do I Weigh too Much?
VASER® Liposuction is intended to treat localized areas of fat. Before any procedure, all patients will receive a consultation with our doctors. Our doctors will discuss with patients all areas of fat that can be successfully targeted and removed. All bodies are created differently, so in some cases, there may be too much fat to target an area, whereas other areas of the body may be perfect for VASER® Liposuction.
Do I Weigh too Little?
VASER® Liposuction works by reshaping areas of fat on the body. If after diet and exercise, stubborn fat still remains on certain parts of the body, VASER® Liposuction may be right for you. If there is enough fat eligible for removal, we will successfully reshape that part of the body. There is no way for doctors to know, however, based on knowing your body weight or based on pictures alone.
