Surgeon: Vincent D. Lepore, MD
Like many patients seeking liposuction, this woman came to see San Jose plastic surgeon Dr. Vincent Lepore with a number of questions. At 36 years old, she exercised regularly and watched her diet. But she was frustrated that she was not able to shed fat from several areas, including her upper and lower abdomen, flanks, thighs and knees.
Dr. Lepore discussed the options for liposuction surgery in detail and ultimately the patient decided to undergo VASER Lipo® liposuction surgery. Using ultrasonic energy, VASER Lipo helps disrupt and liquefy fat cells without damaging surrounding blood vessels. The ultrasound also aids in removing more fat with less bruising, and even helps tighten the surrounding skin.
This patient underwent the procedure in our fully-accredited San Jose surgical suite. Varying amounts of fat were removed from the different sites, for a total of about 2.5 liters. The patient is very pleased with her new contours. She plans to continue her diet and exercise regimen, and states she is now considering breast augmentation.
