Now that the holidays are behind us and the New Year in front of us, it’s time to beginworking towards those 2019 year goals we have set for ourselves. If you have been contemplating body contouring surgery, keep reading to learn more about one of the hottest trends in cosmetic surgery; Vaser Liposuction with Brazilian Butt Lift. This combination is popular because it’s a two-in-one procedure that requires just one surgery and one recovery. Vaser Liposuction removes fat and sculpts the treated area and the Brazilian Butt Lift re-purposes that same fat by placing into the buttocks to add volume and improve the shape and contour.
Whether you are frustrated that diet and exercise aren’t getting your body in the shape you want or you prefer instant gratification, there are various cosmetic procedures available to help you reach your goals. If excess fat is your concern, liposuction is the gold standard for fat removal. While there are many other surgical and non-surgical fat destruction treatments on the market today, none of them match up as a “one and done” procedure that can remove large amounts of fat in just one surgery. And, removing the fat is the only permanent way to treat the body for a smaller, smoother appearance. Unfortunately, liposuction has gotten a bit of a bad rap as being unsafe, having little ability to tighten skin, and being quite painful during recovery. In terms of being unsafe, it goes without saying this is the case with any treatment that isn’t performed by a reputable, skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon.
At Pacific Center for Plastic Surgery, Drs. Nichter and Horowitz offer VASER assisted Liposuction, the latest advanced technology in surgical body contouring. VASER is less invasive and more gentle and effective than traditional liposuction. VASER assisted liposuction is extremely helpful in fibrous areas where fat is very dense, making it easier to suction out of the body with less bruising and overall trauma.VASER® uses small probes powered with high ultrasound frequency to loosen fat cells for gentle removal. This technique ensures that only fat cells are broken down, leaving the surrounding tissue, including nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue intact. Less tissue damage means less discomfort and shorter recovery time compared to traditional liposuction. Unlike with traditional liposuction, body contouring with VASER makes it possible to remove superficial and deep fat, allowing underlying muscles to appear more defined.
Drs. Horowitz and Nichter can create chiseled abs and obliques, sculpted pecs, slim arms, thighs, waist and hips, VASER also improves the appearance of skin. After removal of the fat, the skin retracts, resulting in a smoother, tighter, more youthful appearance.VASER liposuction is effective at fat removal and sculpting, not weight loss. VASER is most effective when you are at a stable healthy weight. It is also ideal if you are already in the habit of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and just want to address stubborn fat that won’t go away. When liposuction is used for quick weight loss, it is more likely that the person will regain weight and negate the surgical results.
BRAZILIAN BUTT LIFT (BBL)
Buttocks come in many different shapes and sizes. Some are flat, others rounded. Some sit high while others sit low. Some buttocks start out looking full, round, and position just right, but begin to flatten and sag over time. Whether you want to enhance what you already have or restore your buttocks back to how they used to look, a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a surgical procedure that uses your own fat to do just that.
A BBL requires fat to be removed from one or more area of the body with liposuction. The fat is then processed and purified, followed by being injected into the buttocks to enlarge, contour and lift the butt.
For patients desiring liposuction, the Brazilian Butt Lift is a wonderful complementary procedure since they are already having fat removed. Rather than discarding the removed fat, it is repurposed to enhance or restore the buttocks further improving the patient’s overall body contouring result.
One of the major benefits of combining Vaser Liposuction and Brazilian Butt Lift is that it requires just one surgery and one recovery. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia at an outpatient surgical center. Recovery time depends on the patient but is usually around two weeks.
If you are thinking about having surgery to improve your body shape and contour, winter is the best time to have it done.
