LipoSelection®

LipoSelection® by VASER® combines new patented technology with advanced surgical techniques to gently dissolve and remove excess fatty tissue from the abdomen, hips, "love handles," "saddlebags," thighs, arms, back, knees, neck and chin. The LipoSelection® procedure uses ultrasound energy to eliminate just fat while leaving other tissues largely undisturbed. Without damage to this tissue, patients experience less discomfort and achieve smoother results than with traditional liposuction.

The Procedure

During the LipoSelection® procedure, the area to be sculpted is filled with an anesthetic solution that allows for a more effective removal of fatty tissue. A thin probe is then inserted to soften and break up fatty tissue on contact using ultrasound waves. Suction and massaging of the sculpted site removes the emulsified fat while leaving the surrounding tissue largely intact.

After Your Procedure

The VASER® system's ultrasound technology causes minimal disturbance to important structural tissue, yielding smooth and shapely contouring. After the procedure, patients may experience some discomfort and should expect some drainage as well as swelling. Pain medication options and post-operative procedures will be reviewed with you.

Patients will wear a compression garment home from the procedure and may be required to wear this garment (under clothing) for several weeks post-operatively. This will provide comfort and support and will help the skin to better fit your new contour.

Anticipated recovery time varies with the extent of the procedure – the amount of fat removed, the number of areas treated, and the patient’s ability to heal. Under Dr. Galiano's guidance, with the exception of some activity restrictions such as heavy lifting, patients may be able to return to normal activities within days.

Progressive skin tightening will occur for four to six months following the procedure. During this time, it is essential to keep your follow-up appointments so Dr. Galiano can monitor your progress.
