Do I Need Anesthesia to Get VASER HD Lipo?
I consult with a good deal of patients who are seeking liposuction without general anesthesia. Some have reservations because of fear and some due to the added cost. Regardless, the bottom line is that, yes, you will need general anesthesia during VASER Liposuction. This is because it will allow your surgeon to remove all of your unwanted fat without the limitations of pain prevention. Compared to other liposuction methods like Smart lipo (Sonobello), Laser Lipo, Slim Lipo, and traditional liposuction, which can be performed using only a local anesthetic, these methods are very limited in how much fat can be removed. In order to achieve the sculpted six-pack look of HD Lipo, suctioning of all excess fat deposits is required, thereby causing unavoidable irritation of the sensory nerves. But fear not, because here at the Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Institute of Orange County thousands of procedures have been performed safely and comfortably using general anesthetic. And while avoiding general anesthesia might be attractive at first, when you consider a lifetime of sub-optimal results, you may rethink your decision.
How Much Does Vaser HD Lipo Cost?
The cost of a VASER high-definition liposuction procedure is directly related to the time required to perform the surgery. Procedure time is dictated by the number of treatment areas needed and how prominent they are. HD Lipo pricing generally starts at $5,000 per treatment area. Since every procedure is tailored to a patients specific needs, the more treatment areas needed, the higher the cost will be. Click here to learn more about Liposuction pricing.
Am I a Good Candidate for VASER HD Lipo?
Almost everyone is a candidate for VASER liposuction, as long as they have fat accumulation in unwanted areas. Patients who are closer to their ideal body weight will see the best results in etching around their muscles to obtain muscle definition. Patients with moderate to severe skin redundancy may require an additional tucking procedure along with liposuction.
For more information and to determine if you are a good candidate for this state-of-the-art procedure, please schedule a free consultation with Orange County’s premiere Vaser HD Liposuction surgeon, Dr. Arian Mowlavi.
“I decided to get butt implants because I had very little fat to give me the volume that I wanted it was something that I wanted for a really long time and had actually done research before getting this procedure as well as going with another doctor for a consultation and it did not go well. THANK GOODNESS I FOUND DR. MOWLAVI. Even just upon consultation I knew he was the doctor for me he knew exactly what I wanted and was very professional. Not only was I was able to pay for the whole procedure all by myself thanks to the different payment options they have for their patients. I am now 5 weeks post op and feel great. My scars are barely visible and only going to get better. Dr. Mowlavi not only put the implants but he also molded my body. I now have a tiny waist and big bum. Honestly, if you want to have that PERFECT HOURGLASS FIGURE…GO TO HIM. He is truly an ARTIST and will sculpt your body perfectly. Aside from my results, I was also treated with respect and kindness from him and all the staff members. I felt very safe and was treated like family. If you are still unsure about this procedure just go to the consultation. Dr. Mowlavi will take his time to get to know you personally to make sure all your needs are met before and after surgery. Special thank you to Claudia and James, you guys were wonderful and helped make the experience amazing. You two are the best never retire ;)”
