Are you considering visiting Cosmos Aesthetics for Vaser Liposuction? But are you unsure who the best candidates for this cosmetic surgery procedure might be?

Vaser Liposuction is one of the most popular body contouring procedures performed at Cosmos Aesthetics. It’s a fat removal treatment option for individuals who struggle to shift their unwanted excess fat deposits in areas such as the love handles, abdomen, and back, even with a healthy diet and exercise.

Do you have realistic expectations about the final results Vaser Liposuction may be able to achieve for? Are you prepared for the downtime and recovery of a liposuction procedure? And do you understand that Vaser Lipo is surgery, and like all surgery it has potential risks and side effects, that must always be considered before deciding to have the procedure?

If yes, read on to find out if you might be a good candidate for Vaser Liposuction at Cosmos Aesthetics…

1. You’ve tried a healthy diet and exercise, but can’t lose that pocket of stubborn fat

If you have tried to lose the excess fat deposits by a healthy diet and regular exercise with little success, you may be a good candidate for Vaser Liposuction. The cosmetic procedure is effective at removing unwanted fat cells from the areas of the body, but it won’t prevent future weight gain.

It’s ideal if you have already adopted healthy habits before you have your Vaser Liposuction procedure so you can maintain the final results long term.

2. You’re very close to or currently at your ideal weight

Vaser Liposuction, while effective at removing excess fat cells, is not a weight loss solution. It’s also not a cosmetic procedure suited to obese patients. If you are wanting a large amount of excess fat removed permanently, you may be left disappointed with the results.

The best candidate for Vaser Liposuction is someone who is at or close to their ideal weight with some stubborn fat deposits and a desire for body contouring.

3. You’re looking for more contouring

Vaser Liposuction uses targeted ultrasound technology to melt and separate unwanted fat cells for easy removal. This allows for greater precision than you would achieve with traditional Liposuction making the cosmetic procedure ideal for those wanting body contouring.

By removing excess fatty tissue in areas such as the love handles, abdomen, inner thighs, and back, suitable patients can achieve a more contoured body shape. If you have pre-existing abdominal muscles and a strong core, you may be a candidate for Vaser Hi Definition Liposuction.

4. You have good skin elasticity

The best candidates for Vaser Liposuction are those with a firm, elastic skin tone, and healthy muscle mass. Vaser Liposuction and the more invasive procedure of traditional liposuction, can’t remove excess skin as a result of drastic weight loss or multiple pregnancies. It can, however, help improve skin elasticity for suitable candidates if used in conjunction with the skin tightening technology Renuvion.

If you have a generous amount of excess skin such as around the belly, you may be better suited to a plastic surgery procedure that not only results in fat reduction but also permanently removes the skin such as an abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck).

5. You’re in good physical and mental health

For any elective cosmetic surgery procedure, the candidate must be in good health – both physically and mentally. An unhealthy patient is at much greater risk of complications as a result of the Vaser Liposuction procedure. If you have a medical history of cardiac arrhythmias, excessive bleeding, seizures, immunodeficiency, deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary emboli, for example, the risks are greater and you will most likely not be a good candidate.

Your medication use may also dictate whether you are a good candidate for Vaser Liposuction. Patients taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, aspirin or anticoagulants such as warfarin, have an increased risk of bleeding. Any fat reduction surgery may not be a safe option while taking certain pharmaceutical medications or recreational drugs. Suitability is always determined by the doctors during the initial consultations.
