Vaser liposuction will be very successful for your chest. It is ideal there for the fibrous fat we usually encounter in the chest. In regards to your abdomen, it depends on how much of the fat is accessible. Vaser can only treat the fat that we can pinch, not the fat in your abdomen (visceral). This type of fat requires weight loss.

Thank you very much for sharing your questions and pictures.
I believe you are an excellent candidate for VASER liposuction in order to remove the excess of fat and achieve the strongest skin contracture.
I am sure you will not have any excess of skin on either chest or abdo.
You should referred to an high experienced plastic surgeon, with European or UK Board and clear interest in VASER liposuction.
I wish you the best of luck with your surgery.
With kind regards,
You are a good candidate for #vaser liposuction as apposed to traditional liposuction. Vaser is a minimally invasive way to get rid of stubborn fat. This procedure can help in definition of muscles, better contouring of body parts and more sculpting of the body. I believe it is easier to sculpt and contour the body with vaser.
It is usually recommended that patients who have recently experienced weight loss remain consistent at their weight for at least 6 to 12 months prior to any cosmetic surgery. This is to ensure longer lasting results of the procedure without risking the fluctuation and stretching of the skin tissue. Excess skin would usually shrink back over the area of the body, but please take note that liposuction is used to reduce volume not tighten skin. We now have a number of non surgical devices such as ThermiSmooth radiofrequency and VelaShape3 to help tighten skin after liposuction for patients who will benefit from this additional care.
And lastly for your guidance, liposuction #results are generally permanent, but if the patient gains a large amount of weight in the future, the area of liposuction will also gain fat but to a lesser degree. With massive weight gain, #rippling may occur. Please remember that liposuction is NOT a method of weight loss and muscle toning, or an alternative to diet and exercise. It does not affect one's metabolism. Regular exercise and diet is still recommended in maintaining good and lasting liposuction results.
Best of luck!
