What is VASER high definition liposuction?

For VASER liposuction patients and other areas, high-definition liposuction in Mission Viejo is ideal if they are seeking to improve definition and sculpting in targeted areas. The procedure starts with the injection of a tumescent solution, which helps to numb the area and reduce bleeding and bruising. Dr. Lee then creates small incisions through which he inserts a tiny probe that emits ultrasound waves. These waves disrupt fat cells while leaving surrounding tissue and blood vessels intact.

Once the fat cells are dislodged, they are extracted from the body using a small cannula. Dr. Lee is then able to sculpt and contour the remaining fat and tissue to create a more defined and toned appearance.

Expected downtime and recovery after VASER high definition liposuction in Mission Viejo, Lake Forest, and Ladera Ranch

Like any surgical procedure, VASER liposuction patients and others will have some required downtime. However, the recovery time is typically shorter than traditional liposuction due to the minimally invasive nature of the procedure.

Immediately after their sessions, patients will need to adopt compression garments to help decrease swelling and promote healing. Patients may experience minor discomfort, bruising, and swelling, side effects that can extend for several days to a week. Pain medication and cold compresses may be recommended to help manage these side effects.

Dr. Lee suggests that high-definition liposuction patients and others avoid strenuous exercise for 14-18 days after the procedure to allow the body to heal properly. Most patients can resume their normal schedule within 4-7 days after the procedure, depending on the extent of the treatment.

Results from VASER high-definition liposuction are typically long-lasting and sustainable, but it is important to maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to ensure the best possible results. Patients should also avoid smoking to promote healing and reduce the risk of complications.
