Once you have made the decision to have VASERlipo, you will have a consultation with San Francisco Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Shahin Javaheri. During your consultation, you will have a chance to discuss everything in-depth from start to finish.  During this visit you, along with the doctor, will go over your medical records to ensure that you are indeed a good candidate for the procedure and what to expect before, during and after.

About the Procedure

VASERlipo can be done on various parts of the body, including belly, hips, legs, back, arms, neck and chin. You will discuss with your doctor ahead of time what areas should be worked on. Before the procedure begins you will be given a general anesthesia.

Dr. Javaheri can also combine Vaser and J plasma technology while performing high definition liposculpture allowing for the best possible results such as tightening of the treated skin.  Dr. Shahin Javaheri will inject a special saline solution called tumescent into the troubled areas which will help to shrink the blood vessels in your body and provide a numbing sensation. This will enlarge all fat cells making it easier for them to be seen and taken care of.

Next, a tiny probe will be inserted through a small incision. When the tumescent fluid and high energy sound waves emitted by the probe interact it enables the fat to be broken up and easily removed. A specially designed cannula will be inserted into the incision so the fat can be removed at a quick but controlled rate. Since the fat is relatively loose the doctor will be able to easily give the patient the perfect and natural looking contour. Once the procedure is completed it will be time to rest and heal.

What to Expect After Your Surgery

VASERlipo is less invasive which means most patients can return home the same day the procedure takes place. You may experience some fluid drainage, bruising and swelling which is perfectly normal and will heal over time. You will be provided surgery supplements and medical compression garments to help with the swelling and recovery.

Your Recovery

Dr.Shahin Javaheri creates a custom plan for each patient to ensure that their recovery will be as smooth as possible in your pre op visit. You will need to take the time required to allow your body to heal properly. You will be instructed to walk each day to help keep the circulation moving and prevent blood clots. You will want to avoid strenuous activities for at least a few days and gradually get back into a routine.

Possible Complications

As with any surgery, there is always a chance of complications having VASERlipo. Some of these complications may include, but not limited to, risk of infection, scarring, longer recovery time and prolonged swelling or bruising.

*Results will vary and candidates for VASERlipo are based on an individual basis. All patients will be required to have a medical examination and consultation to determine if you are eligible.
