Why Dr. Ravi’s Smart Tummy Tuck Includes VASER LiposuctionApril 8, 2022
During tummy tuck surgery, fat that has proven difficult to eliminate through diet and exercise is removed from the abdominal area, allowing the underlying structure to be more fully defined. The removal of stubborn fat deposits is often necessary for proper sculpting during tummy tuck surgery and traditional liposuction is certainly an effective way to achieve this goal.
But it’s not the most effective way.
VASER High-Definition Liposuction
VASER High-Definition Liposuction is an advanced liposuction technique that utilizes ultrasound technology to improve patient comfort and outcomes. With this liposuction technique, ultrasound waves are used to emulsify bulky and unsightly accumulations of fat prior to their removal, improving results while reducing risks.
Liquefying fat before its removal allows for its complete elimination from the treatment area. This also helps to prevent trauma and damage to surrounding muscle, nerves, and tissue, reduces risks of postoperative discomfort, and helps to shorten the total recovery period.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ravi Somayazula remains committed to patient comfort and safety. Offering advanced techniques like VASER liposuction helps to protect these things without compromising on results.
Which Type of Tummy Tuck is Right for You?
We perform both full and mini tummy tucks at our comfortable, private, and accredited surgical center. Which method will be right for your needs is entirely dependent on factors unique to your frame.
Full tummy tuck surgery involves a larger incision and is ideal for the removal of moderate amounts of skin and fat. During a full tummy tuck, abdominal muscles that have been separated are reattached and the belly button is repositioned.
During a mini-tummy tuck, Dr. Ravi removes excess fat and skin and tightens the abdominal wall. The belly button is not repositioned during a mini tummy tuck, making it best for people who do not require this part of the procedure.
VASER liposuction is included in both types of tummy tuck surgery as needed.
