What is VASER liposuction?

Dr. Poulos’ expertise in body sculpting truly shines with Ultrasound Assisted surgery. The brand-new VASER liposuction device allows Dr. Poulos to remove fat and precisely contour an area of the body while preserving important tissue and nerve connections. According to a recent study, the VASER significantly limits the loss of blood during liposuction procedures when compared to traditional liposuction treatments alone. This advancement reduces bruising and swelling, speeds patient recovery time, and produces a smoother result.

VASER liposuction is performed under local anesthesia in our in-office surgical suite. VASER liposuction can be done on any area of the body where traditional liposuction is performed.

In addition, the less-invasive nature of VASER liposuction makes for a better choice for patients who are electing liposuction on more delicate or thin-skinned areas of the body, such as the chin, neck, inner thigh, or upper arms.

What can I expect from my Northborough liposuction procedure?

Liposuction is an outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. Dr. Poulos creates tiny incisions in strategic areas to minimize visible scarring. To ensure noticeable yet natural-looking results, Dr. Poulos is careful to not overcorrect or under-correct the treatment area. Once she is finished removing the desired amount of fat, Dr. Poulos will close the incisions and place a compression garment to support the healing tissues.

What are the benefits of VASER liposuction in Northborough?

  • Tighter, slimmer, more streamlined body contours
  • Increased wardrobe options
  • Improved self-image
  • A more youthful physique
  • Minimized bruising

Who is a good candidate for liposuction?

Contrary to what many people believe, liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. Instead, the procedure reduces small pockets of fat that are unresponsive to diet and exercise efforts. For best results, patients should be at or near their ideal weight and have good skin elasticity and muscle tone. Dr. Poulos will design your treatment plan after evaluating your anatomy, aesthetic concerns and goals.

Liposuction can be used to help reduce fat in the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Waist
  • Hips
  • Buttocks
  • Back
  • Upper arms
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Chest area
  • Inner knees
  • Chin and neck

What can I expect from recovery?

Dr. Poulos will be actively involved in your recovery, meeting with you regularly to monitor your healing progress. Bruising, swelling and soreness are normal during the first few weeks of recovery, but these symptoms will subside over time. Dr. Poulos may prescribe oral pain medication and make adjustments to your recovery to minimize discomfort. She will also advise you on when it is safe to resume normal activities, including work and exercise, based on your healing progress.

What will my results be like?

Results with liposuction are considered to be long-lasting. Once the fat cells are removed, they cannot grow back. However, because future weight gain is still possible, Dr. Poulos recommends you maintain your slimmer physique by making healthy lifestyle choices (e.g., eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly).
