EYE ON HEALTH: Vaserlipo

Posted: Updated:
It's liposuction without the surgery VASERlipo is now being used by people like Bryan Clendenen who weren't able to get the results they were looking for with diet and exercise.

Bryan  Clendenen says "I was able to maintain an average body weight, but I was never able to really push it to the best definition I could get."

Doctor Chad Deal  says with this improved technique he is now able to get deeper into fat layers and define edges and muscles.   

Dr. Chad Deal, Southern Surgical Arts says "These ultrasound waves are essentially getting all the fat cell waves to come off and leave a lot of healthy connective tissue in place."

Dr. Deal says in other words, the procedure is tissue-selective, targeting fat while protecting other tissues from damage, but gentle enough to treat delicate areas such as the neck and arms.

Dr. Carey Nease says "I like to use it in the  neck, jowl area, we're sculpting improving the jaw line, taking out excess fat in the neck."

There is about a week of downtime from the procedure and most patients will experience some bruising and swelling.

It's important to remember this isn't a weight loss procedure, it's body contouring or high definition sculpting and not everyone is a good candidate, you need to be in relatively good shape to have this procedure done.

Bryan Clendenen says "I have to continue working out to keep it defined."

Bryan says this is definitely an investment for him both financially and health wise.

Bryan Clendenen says "It's driven me to eat healthier and work out more when I can"

So you still can't totally get away from exercise and a healthy diet.
