Dr. Barone offers VASER® Ultrasonic LipoSelection®, a system using ultrasound technology to target unwanted fat while avoiding other types of tissue such as nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. VASER® Lipo has a faster recovery time than traditional liposuction, and also has the added benefit of skin tightening that results in a smoother silhouette.
Liposuction results are typically long-lasting. However, factors such as weight gain, aging, pregnancy and lifestyle can all affect how well the results are maintained.
Patients may be good candidates for liposuction if:
- they are concerned about fat deposits in the hips, thighs, buttocks, abdomen, calves, arms, back, or chest that are unresponsive to diet and exercise.
- they are in good health and relatively near their goal weight.
- they have good skin elasticity.
- they are committed to maintaining results with a healthy lifestyle including a well-balanced diet and regular exercise.
