VASER Lipo High Blood Pressure and Cholesterol

Hi, I am a 57 years old. I have a high blood pressure and cholesterol and would like to have Vaser lipo to get ride off some fat in my lower abdomen, ribs and other areas. Do I have to be in perfect health to go through this type of this lipo? I have heard there are some serious side effects that might result in death. Please help.

No matter the type of liposuction you will need a full medical clearance in writing before any boarded PS would operate upon you. Just for your safety. I recommend to consider Smart Lipo TRIPLEX + Lipo. but Vaser will be good also.

In many cases, plastic surgery can be done with some health conditions. It just depends on the medical condition at the time. In addition to a required one-on-one consultation with a board certified Plastic Surgeon, patients always need to be seen by their primary care doctor prior to such procedures. Also, every patient is screened for risks of blood clots (DVT) and then take appropriate measures.

By acquiring clearance from your primary, any specialists you may see and your board certified plastic surgeon. An ideal  #candidate for Vaser Liposuction is a person in good health who seeks a minimally invasive way to remove stubborn fat with less downtime than traditional #liposuction.  Vaser is ideal for those seeking improved definition of muscles and contouring.  Those who seek increased sculpting of are ideal vaser lipo candidates.

It's best to begin consulting with a board certified plastic surgery to learn if you are a candidate for liposuction. If so, you will then learn more about which #technique will work best for you and your goals. It is important you select a plastic surgeon who is #board-certified and has a great deal of experience with #vaser #liposuction. Aside from checking board-certification, it is suggested that you look at before and after photos of the surgeons actual patients, and read patient reviews. Gathering all of this information will help you make a well-informed decision. Always discuss your issues and concerns with the Plastic Surgeon during and following your consultation. Information that you read online may not apply to your personal situation.

2. First you must get a medical clearance with your primary doctor who will need to speak with your surgeon.  The risk is very low, but like all procedures, there is a risk, even if small.  The more you remove, the greater the risk, the more areas, the greater the risk, and despite this, the risk is still small.  We just do not see problems with Vaser Lipoplasty.  We also use laser in conjunction and have very high fat percentage removals, and low pain levels during recovery.  Be sure to see a BCPS for this procedure.

Regardless of the type of liposuction that you have, it is always important to get medical clearance from your doctor to make sure that you are healthy enough to go through the operation. Good luck.

A large number of our patients have high lipids and hypertension and can easily have liposuction. It would be much safer if we knew how healthy your heart was. Since fluid is injected into your fat to make fat removal easier and safer it may be important in certain patients to make sure that such fluid addition can be handled by the heart and does not push it into heart failure. A Cardiology clearance based on a treadmill examination should easily answer this question as it will pick underlying heart disease before it can hurt you.
