VASERlipo is an advanced form of liposuction that uses ultrasound assistance to remove fat with minimally invasive techniques. VASERlipo can be used on small areas for precise body contouring, like the neck and arms, or larger areas for dramatic transformations. Compared to traditional and other forms of liposuction, VASERlipo allows board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Cynthia Mizgala to melt the fat within the body prior to aspirating it for smoother results. VASERlipo uses ultrasound energy to target the fat cells while preserving the fibroseptal network to improve skin texture. VASERlipo also has faster recovery times than other forms of liposuction so you can start enjoying your new, slim figure sooner. Call A Woman Plastic Surgeon in Metairie, LA to set up a private consultation to see if VASERlipo is right for you.
"Iam in my mid 40's and a mother of one child. I have a very demanding and active job in the medical field. I see woman of all ages complain of the way they look and how their bodies have changed with age, pregnancies and yo- yo dieting. Well I'm one of those women!! Although having one pregnancy it definitely was enough to change my body. I was left with excessive loose skin. Later adding three laparoscopic surgeries, and years of weight loss and weight gain. My tummy became a train wreck!! After years of contemplating surgery I decided it was now time to get my body back. I choose Dr. Mizgala because of her outstanding reputation as a surgeon. I have seen some of her work and talked with patients about their experience and knew she was the Dr. of choice for me. Iam now three months post surgery and feeling wonderful!! I love my new tummy and belly button. I put on a bikini for the first time in over twenty years. My confidence level is higher than it has been in years. For anyone contemplating surgery dont put it off. For me it was a life changing experience."- S. / Google / Aug 07, 2019
"Very Happy with my New Chin! - I'd been wanting this procedure for awhile. The doctor and staff were lovely and it really didn't hurt. There was some lumpiness I had to adjust to as my body healed, but I wore the compression garment as much as possible and used a lot of arnica for bruising/swelling. I'm very happy with the results and so glad I did it."- J. / RealSelf / Dec 03, 2019

"Without a doubt the best doctor I’ve ever had. Dr. Mizgala is a magician who made my flabby stomach washboard flat, and made an ugly C-section scar disappear. She is an absolutely brilliant surgeon, and her sincere interest in and concern for her patients was clear throughout my time with her. All my questions and concerns were personally and fully answered in a way I could understand and that put me at ease. I would trust her to do any surgery or procedure without a doubt. There should be a 10 star rating available - she earned it."- J. / Google / Nov 27, 2019

VASERlipo can be used to treat a wide variety of areas, including the abdomen, thighs, knees, buttocks, hips, arms, male breasts, love handles, and more – almost any part of the body can undergo treatment with VASERlipo. Lean, fit people who desire a more chiseled look or who have localized problem areas will benefit greatly with this procedure. Patients fighting their weight can also benefit and get a "jump start" to a leaner physique, which empowers them to choose a healthier lifestyle to maintain or even improve their results after their procedure.
VASERlipo is performed in the office under local anesthesia. To start VASERlipo, Dr. Mizgala will inject the treated area(s) with a saline solution to numb the area and shrink blood vessels. Then, thin probes are inserted through small incisions and the probes liquefy fat cells using high ultrasound frequency, which has no effect on surrounding tissues. The liquefied fat cells are then removed with special thin liposuction cannulas. Removing fat cells after VASER is applied is a gentler process, allowing patients to undergo this procedure in the office, even awake if they prefer. As the fibroseptal network under the skin is preserved, the skin texture is improved.
What To Expect
VASERlipo may take from 1 – 3 hours, depending on the amount of fat that is being removed and how many areas are being treated. After the procedure, there are no activity restrictions. Although results can be seen immediately, optimal outcomes will appear in 3 – 4 months as the body continues to heal and transform. While the fat that is removed cannot be recreated, you should continue a healthy lifestyle, including a proper diet and exercise since the remaining fat cells can expand from future weight gain.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does VASERlipo cost?
The cost of VASERlipo will depend on the number of areas being addressed in your treatment plan. During your consultation, we will be happy to provide you with an estimate of your cost and can help you find low-interest medical financing. The average cost for VASERlipo is between $4,500 – $12,000.
VASERlipo vs. traditional?
VASERlipo is easier on the body with less recovery time, less bruising, and swelling than traditional liposuction. The high-end system enables Dr. Mizgala to have more control to contour specific areas of the body to attain the smooth, seamless look patients desire. Another benefit of VASERlipo is that it focuses on liquefying fat cells without harming the surrounding tissue. During tumescent liposuction, once an incision is made to the target area, a thin tube is inserted to remove fat cells, which is powered by a motorized suction system. Dr. Mizgala has 20 years of experience with VASERlipo and most recently has been combining it with Renuvion (J-Plasma) to enhance skin tightening further.
How long do the results last?
Once the fat cells are liquefied and removed, they are permanently lost. However, to maintain positive results, a healthy diet and daily exercise routine should continue to be practiced.
