Vaser or Laser(lipolite) Lipo for Chin/neck?
Doctor Answers 3
Vaser or laser liposuction for the neck
There are many pathways to a good result. As a general rule the credentials, experience, and artistic sensibility of the surgeon are more critical than the particular method of surgery. That said, I find certain advantages to laser liposuction in the neck area when it is done as an isolated procedure (not part of a face lift). I make use of the Slimlipo technology for laser lipoplasty, so I cannot comment specifically on the results with the equipment that you specify. I have found that the comfort factor is much better with slimlipo laser lipolysi than with vaser when the surgery is carried out under local anesthesia. I also have seen better contraction of the soft tissues with laser lipo than I was able to obtain with either classical or vaser techniques.

Vaser Lipo on Chin/Neck?
Thank you for your question. In the right hands, both can be effective, but my preference is for Vaser with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Laser in addition may also have some benefit. I hope this helps.
Having Vaser Liposuction on your neck would give you great results. It’s ultrasonic assisted and it has the tendency to help tighten the skin. The swelling takes 6-8 months to completely subside but you see results about 3-4 weeks after the procedure. You can see pictures of our past patients on our website.
