Naples - Thursday 23 Apr 2020 - Dr. Francesco Somma

Will Vaser liposuction give me curves in the right places? Should I have Vaser Lipo or abdominoplasty to get a flat stomach? What happens if I gain weight after cosmetic surgery?

There are many questions to ask your cosmetic surgeon if you are considering undergoing Vaser Liposuction. It is important to ask questions to understand whether the surgery will meet your expectations but also to be sure of the qualifications and experience of the doctor you choose and to understand the benefits and limitations of the procedure.

Here are some questions, to ask during your consultation, that will help you determine if the surgical procedure is right for you.

What qualifications do you have?

You should research the plastic surgeon and his or her experience before booking a consultation. It is important to clarify experience in the field of Vaser liposuction, but also experience in other fields of cosmetic surgery.

How many Vaser liposuction procedures have you performed?

It is important to choose a cosmetic surgeon who has extensive experience in liposculpture and body reshaping; remember, your cosmetic surgery results are a direct result of your surgeon's work.

Where will liposuction surgery take place?

Although Vaser liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure, it must still be performed in a clinic and operating room so that you can be assured of high standards of safety and hygiene.

Based on my goals, is this the right procedure for me?

Vaser liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that suits a wide variety of patients who wish to eliminate excess fat. However, not all patients are the best candidates for liposuction surgery. This may be due to their medical history, skin quality, or weight loss expectations.

It is important to have a frank and honest conversation with your surgeon to ascertain whether Vaser liposuction is the right option for you and your goals. In fact, in some cases, an abdominoplasty or skin lift surgery may be better.

Can I see before-and-after photos of similar cases?

Before-and-after photos of similar cases can be a great way to feel confident that your surgeon can provide results you will be satisfied with. However, you must always remember that every individual is different and responds to surgery differently.

What are the benefits of Vaser lipo?

Ask your surgeon about the advantages of Vaser liposuction with ultrasound technology compared to other procedures, such as traditional liposuction, so you can have a detailed understanding of the procedure. Even if you have conducted your own research, it is helpful to have the benefits explained in detail and on an individual patient basis.

What are the limitations of Vaser liposuction?

Like any cosmetic surgery procedure, Vaser lipo has its limitations on what can and cannot be achieved. The procedure removes excess fatty tissue and can improve skin tone, but it does not remove excess skin nor is it effective in cases of severe skin sagging. We recommend that you understand the limitations to ensure that you get the maximum benefit from the procedure.

Are there any risks associated with this cosmetic procedure?

It is critical that you are aware of any risks associated with Vaser liposuction prior to surgery. Once you understand the possible complications, you can confidently decide whether the liposculpture procedure is right for you.
