It can also remove fat from area such as the knees, ankles, arms and neck. Typically, the aim of the procedure is to provide a slimmer figure. The treatment can take between forty five minutes and three hours, depending on the individual’s circumstances.

One of the main benefits of Vaser Liposuction is the reduced recovery time. Most patients are able to return to work in just a few days. Recovery time can vary depending on a person’s health, and fitness levels, but it usually takes two weeks for people to fully recover and be able to return to their normal routine. Strenuous activity, such as exercise or lifting heavy items, should be avoided immediately after surgery.
