Approx. how much would it cost for buffalo hump and back of arms???? I have light skin and i tend to scar very easily

Vaser liposuction: is vaser good for me?

hello fashioncrazy1  

 A healthy person seeking a fast and minimally invasive way to get rid of stubborn fat.  Those patients looking for better definition of muscles and better contouring of body parts.  Those patients who are looking for more sculpting of their body are good candidates for vaser as opposed to traditional liposuction. #candidate #female

Vaser Lipo

Vaser lipo is a great option for you if your health is sound.  In my opinion, Smart lipo has its place, and we like to use laser with our lipo cases, but all the heavy lifting is done with vaser.  Vaser is probably 75% of the technical benefit achieved with the combination of the two, laser the other 25%, but an important 25% with good skin retraction, etc.  Without Vaser, our liposuction cases are less predictable, more blood loss, and more irregular.  With the Vaser, just the opposite.

I use the Vaser Liposelection and get great results.  The Vaser help contract and tighten the skin from the inside.  The fee is $2,500 per area plus operating room and anesthesia.

YES! But I prefer Smart Lipo TRIPLEX unit + lipo over Vaser. Both can result in excellent outcomes. Best to you. Fee range from $3800 To $5800.
