VASER Liposuction Las Vegas

Reach your body’s full potential with Dr. Pancholi and VASER® Liposelection

Many people have a great shape that just needs some strategic sculpting to take things to a different level. Although it’s not for everyone, liposuction can be a great solution for the right patient.

There are many technologies available when it comes to liposculpting. The most important element, however, is not the technology, but the surgeon’s ability to see and shape the body irrespective of the technology.

Knowing the human form, working alongside sculptors, and having sculpted the body in clay himself, Dr. Pancholi takes this knowledge and artistic eye and applies it to you and his vision of how to sculpt your body and reveal the curves and contours that are waiting to come out. Much more tedious and time consuming than standard liposuction, VASER “high definition” liposuction can create the look that you’ve always wanted.

Using this advanced technology to assist his finely tuned skills, Dr. Pancholi can better sculpt a fit, athletic appearance in men and women by removing fat to reveal muscle groups and make muscles appear more defined. VASER can target specific areas of fat throughout the body, and it’s powerful enough to target large areas of fat, yet gentle enough to also treat delicate areas of the body, such as the neck and arms.

How is VASER Liposelection Better for Me?

Conventional liposuction aggressively removes fat, which can damage surrounding tissues and impose a longer than necessary recovery period. VASER Lipo is tissue-selective, meaning it can specifically target fat, while protecting nerves, blood vessels and connective tissues from damage. As a result, you should experience significantly less pain and bruising and a quicker return to your normal activities.

Improved skin contraction is another key benefit with the VASER technique. The ultrasonic energy heats the skin and subdermal tissues, which prompts new collagen production and helps your skin become firmer and smoother over your newly sculpted shape.

Although a wonderful tool, in the end it is your surgeon’s ability to use this technology that will matter most when it comes to getting great results.

Understanding how VASER Liposelection works

VASER Lipo uses ultrasonic energy to selectively break apart and gently remove unwanted fat.

The area to be treated is injected with a special saline solution known as “tumescent fluid.” This contains an anesthetic that numbs the target area and shrinks nearby blood vessels. It also temporarily expands the targeted area, making fat cells easier to remove.

Thin ultrasonic probes are selected for the type of fat being treated and inserted through small incisions. Sound waves tuned to a frequency to break fat cells is then emitted at the end of the probe. This energy will break fat cells while leaving the surrounding tissues, blood vessels, and nerves unharmed. The loosened fat cells are then removed from the body using gentle suction.

After surgery, Dr. Pancholi will give you a recovery plan to promote maximum skin retraction and smooth results. Most likely, you will need to wear a compression garment on the treated area for the first few weeks. Dr. Pancholi may recommend massage therapy to enhance results and speed recovery.

What body areas can be treated with VASER Lipo?

Because VASER Liposelection allows for very fine sculpting, areas that can be treated with regular tumescent liposuction can also be treated:

  • Face, Chin & Neck
  • Abdomen, Back, & Chest
  • Hips, Buttocks & Lovehandles
  • Breasts for male & female breast reduction
  • Arms
  • Inner & Outer Thighs
  • Knees, Calves & Ankles

How much fat can be taken? Can you treat multiple areas at once?

Multiple body areas can usually be treated in one surgery. Overall, Dr. Pancholi has two main limiting factors: (1) the total amount of fat that is expected to be removed, and (2) how many different areas are going to be treated. Each factor will demand the body’s healing resources and too much of either can limit a safe recovery.

Bear in mind that liposuction is not intended as a primary weight loss solution. The goal is to create a slimmer, more sculpted silhouette. You may not notice a significant amount of weight loss, but you should be pleased with your slimmer new shape.

It is essential to be at a stable body weight and have adopted a realistic diet and exercise program. A person who gains significant weight after liposuction will typically gain weight elsewhere on the body, possibly developing an odd and lumpy appearance where liposuction was previously performed. Losing weight after liposuction can improve your appearance up to a point where the skin can no longer contract to keep up with weight loss. In this case, loose skin can result and additional surgery may be needed to tighten or remove excess skin.

How soon will I see my results? What is the recovery time?

This can vary with the number of areas treated and volume of fat removed. Most patients report seeing improvements immediately after the procedure, with more defined results after three to four months. Overall, the amount of fat removed and number of areas treated will dictate your recovery speed.

It is normal to feel sore and achy for the first 5 to 7 days after any liposuction procedure. This will improve gradually over the next 3-4 weeks as swelling decreases and your new shape reveals itself. Your skin may feel itchy as swelling decreases and it contracts to your new, slimmer contours. Your shape will continue to improve over the next 3 to 6 months. Dr. Pancholi will tell you how much fat he removed to give you a better idea of what your new “normal” weight is after liposuction and to provide a new reference point for weight gain and loss.

What about future weight gain? Will fat migrate to other areas?

Once you have fat removed, it is gone. Assuming a healthy lifestyle of proper diet and exercise, it should not return or migrate. However, because fat is necessary to a healthy body, some essential fat layers in any given area remain untreated.

If you do experience weight gain or loss after your VASER Lipo procedure, it will tend to be proportionately distributed over your entire body. If you gain a significant amount of weight, your body may start to make more fat cells while your current remaining fatty tissue can expand resulting in a lumpy irregularity. Normal aging changes can also be expected.

How can I be certain VASER Lipo is right for me?

If you are frustrated with the resistance of certain body areas to diet and exercise, VASER Lipo may be the solution. If you are healthy and seeking a fast, low-pain way to lose stubborn fat deposits, the VASER Lipo procedure could be your answer.

Being at a weight you can achieve and maintain is key for optimal, lasting results with VASER liposelection. Crash dieting to an unrealistic number will likely result in your weight creeping back up to a number that your lifestyle dictates.

A better approach: commit to a diet and exercise program that is realistic for you to reach and maintain a healthy, stable weight. Doing so before you have liposuction will help your results last longer, more likely result in you being able to return your diet and exercise program and hopefully lose a few more pounds rather than gaining weight and developing a look you may not like.

How much does the treatment cost?

The total cost of your treatment will vary depending upon the number of body areas treated and the extensiveness of the procedure. Coming in for your consultation, and getting a full assessment by Dr. Pancholi will really help you understand what unique circumstances your body presents and what will help achieve your best result.
