Houston Plastic Surgeon Chooses VASER Hi Def for Better Liposuction Results

Dr. Sam Sukkar Explains Why He Recommends VASER Liposculpture More Frequently Than Traditional Liposuction

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - Nov 5, 2013) - When patients come to Dr. Sam Sukkar's Houston plastic surgery practice looking for ways to remove excess fat, he says he often recommends VASER® High Definition Liposculpture. Dr. Sukkar explains that, especially for patients with good skin, VASER® Liposculpture can often provide results that are much more customizable than with a traditional liposuction procedure. With this innovative technology, Dr. Sukkar says he can help his patients achieve a more athletic, toned appearance. He notes that many patients have worked hard to get an athletic body, but find there are areas of their body that seem resistant to diet and exercise. According to Dr. Sukkar, VASER® Hi Def Liposculpture allows him to precisely target and selectively remove these stubborn pockets of fat to create contour, revealing a more attractive shape.

In a recent blog post, titled "Gain Contour and Shape with VASER® Liposculpture," Dr. Sukkar explains that VASER® Liposculpture is typically able to address and remove more fat than standard methods. He says traditional liposuction removes fat from the deep and middle layers of fat, but is not able to treat the superficial layer. Carefully customizing the procedure to each of his patients, Dr. Sukkar is able to remove excess fat from all three layers. He notes that VASER® Hi Def Liposculpture's ability to prepare the fat prior to removal is what gives him additional control and precision. Another benefit of the procedure is a lower risk of bruising or trauma as compared to traditional liposuction, says Dr. Sukkar.

For all his VASER® Liposculpture patients, the Houston plastic surgeon says that a specialized garment is worn post-operatively in an effort to minimize downtime. He says that this garment, which differs from what is used after a traditional liposuction, is one of the important measures taken to improve patients' outcomes. Dr. Sukkar also often recommends daily post-op massages. He says that many of his patients have been happy with their results, and those who continue their healthy lifestyle have typically been able to maintain results long-term.
