Vaser Hi-Def Liposelection – Q & A with Dr. Shapiro
As Arizona’s only surgeon trained in VASER Hi-Def Liposelection, Dr. Shapiro frequently provides consultation to patients wanting to know more about this exclusive procedure that shapes curves and unveils muscle definition. He highly recommends VASER-Hi Def for those wanting to enhance certain areas such as the abdomen, arms, buttocks, and lower back. With more and more individuals interested in the procedure and how it works, we thought it would be a great opportunity to ask Dr. Shapiro a few questions to learn a little more. Here’s what he had to say:
Can you explain what VASER Hi-Def is?
VASER Hi Def is an ultrasound assisted lipoplasty procedure that directs ultrasonic waves of energy through unwanted fat to remove it. Before suctioning the fat, it is emulsified and can be strategically re-injected in certain locations to enhance curves and contours. By being able to remove and add fat during the same procedure, a surgeon trained in the procedure can literally sculpt the human form with tremendous precision and accuracy.
What are the advantages of choosing VASER Hi-Def?
There are many advantages to VASER Hi-Def. Unlike traditional liposuction that removes only the deep layers of fat, VASER technology gives surgeons the ability to sculpt areas by removing both the deep and superficial layers of fat. It also enables a surgeon to add fat as needed. This allows the underlying muscle to be enhanced and its borders accentuated in a way that is impossible with just liposuction.
Because it is typically performed under local anesthetic, there are none of the risks associated with general anesthesia. Enhancements can be done without the addition of implants which further minimizes risks to patients. Unlike traditional liposuction which can destroy blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue along with removing, VASER Hi Def emulsifies only fat leaving blood vessels and nerves intact. This results in less pain and bruising, better skin retraction, and a shorter recovery time.
Who Is a good patient for this procedure?
While liposuction remains a smart option for de-bulking patients who are overweight, VASER Hi-Def is a better option for those who are in relatively good shape and want to improve the look of specific areas or who want more muscle definition.
What’s the recovery time?
Because VASER Hi-Def is less invasive than liposuction, recovery time is quicker. Most patients are fully recovered in a week, and many are back to normal in just a few days.
What results can I expect to have with VASER Hi-Def?
Patients are amazed by the amazing results from this minimally invasive procedure. Give us a call for a consultation, and we can provide you with mores specifics on how VASER Hi-Def can improve the shape of your body.
