Certain areas of the human body tend to collect and store fat despite our efforts to eliminate it through diet and exercise. Liposuction aims to eliminate fat pockets and give you a more sculpted appearance. It is most commonly used to eliminate fat in the legs, arms, chin, neck, stomach, and buttocks. At his practice in Abington, Dr. David Horvath treats liposuction patients from Doylestown, Huntingdon Valley, Jenkintown, and throughout the Philadelphia area using the Vaser LipoSelection® system. This revolutionary treatment offers liposuction patients a less invasive option to achieve the desired results.
What distinguishes the VASER LipoSelection® procedure from traditional liposuction is its ability to differentiate targeted fat from nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. Innovative VASER LipoSelection® technology breaks up fat without damaging surrounding tissues for smoother results and a faster recovery with less discomfort. Contact our offices for more information about liposuction, or to schedule a consultation.
VASER LipoSelection® is an ultrasonic liposuction procedure performed under local anesthesia. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, Dr. Horvath injects a saline wetting solution into the fat deposits that have been targeted for removal. This solution shrinks the blood vessels to minimize bleeding and swelling after liposuction. Through small incisions, he inserts a probe that is capable of emitting high-frequency sound waves. These waves are tailored to break up fat deposits without damaging any surrounding tissue. Finally, Dr. Horvath removes the liquefied fat with a suction device known as a cannula before closing the incisions.
Because this liposuction procedure is gentle, our patients are able to recover more quickly than those who choose traditional liposuction. Most patients are able to return to their normal routine within a week as swelling fades. To help the body adjust to its new shape, it is important to wear a compression garment that helps control swelling and promotes healing. Discomfort is typically mild, though Dr. Horvath will prescribe medication to ensure a comfortable recovery.
The VASER LipoSelection® system is known for producing excellent liposuction results with minimal damage to surrounding tissues. Our patients enjoy more sculpted physiques and enhanced self-confidence. Liposuction can also be combined with many other procedures, including abdominoplasty, body contouring, and breast lift, to produce even better results.
