What is the Best Treatment to Help Tighten and Smooth the Skin After Vaser?

I had Vasor performed on my tummy about 5 months ago. Overall I am very happy but I'm left with some loose skin. I also have wrinkling around my underwear line that I would like smoothed out.

Vaser Liposuction

The Vasershape is clearly the best.  But, Smoothshape and Velashape also have worked well for us.  Velashape is better for tight areas.

Skin quality after Vaser

Thank you for your question and I am sorry to hear about your problem.

  • Skin, following Vaser liposuction normally contracts quite well. However, if skin elasticity was poor prior to the procedure then some skin excess will still be present after the procedure. This particularly the case if a large amount of fat was removed, in older patients, stretch marks following pregnancy or rapid weight gain.
  • Removing the excess skin with help of a mini-tummy tuck is probably the quickest solution for the problem. Radio frequency therapy, laser or chemical skin resurfacing, Micro needling and topical application of Retinol can help to improve skin elasticity but takes time. More exotic treatments like weaving Gold surgical threads into skin is designed to increase skin thickness and elasticity, but it is not available in USA.
