All liposuction types can address this area nicely. But you need to be seen in person to evaluate the options.

Vaser liposuction

Vaser liposuction is one modality to treat saddle bags.  I always say it is not the wand but the magician waving the wand that creates the magic.

VASER Liposuction for saddle bags

VASER liposelection assisted liposuction is a great option for contouring saddle bags as it is for any area. I have found that VASER leads to a consistently smoother outcome than many other forms of liposuction but all surgical body contouring results are very much surgeon dependent. I would recommend finding an experienced surgeon with good before and after pictures of their own patients.

Hello and thank you for your question. Although we have used vaser liposuction for the last 10 years and is employed as our #1 technique, I believe a well-trained board certified in plastic surgery can get you an excellent result with many techniques. We have chosen vaser because our patients have told us that they have less pain and discomfort and a  quicker recovery.
