VASER Lipo for Stubborn SaddlebagsPosted on August 20, 2009 | by Boston Plastic Surgery
Are there areas of your body that just don’t seem to slim down? Do you think you’re becoming pear-shaped rather than hourglass-shaped? VASER Liposuction may be just the right solution for you.
People who undergo liposuction aren’t necessarily overweight. In fact, many are actually in good shape. But at a certain age, a shift occurs regarding weight fluctuations. It doesn’t matter if we run on the treadmill, use the elliptical, lift weights, or practice Yoga and Pilates, we still may have unrelenting dimples, bumps and bulging areas. They don’t go away! The saddlebags (big puffs on the outer thigh) often don’t respond to exercise or diet.
Fortunately there are new, less invasive Liposuction procedures available that require little downtime.
Our technique uses sound waves to break up the fat cells, making them easier to remove. The cannula is so tiny it causes minimal trauma to the area so there is less bruising and swelling than with traditional Lipo. In some cases the incision is so small you don’t even have to stitch it – that’s why the recovery is so fast. Generally patients take the day off after the procedure and go back to work after that.
If you are interested in smoothing out and reducing areas of your body that bother you, discuss your options with Dr. Samaha. Also, please remember that ultimately, the most important Liposuction tool is the operator.
