We all know how difficult it is to trim down our waistlines, even with a strict diet and rigorous exercise. Liposuction at the hips can help patients reduce dress and pant sizes. Dr. Friedlander will sculpt your silhouette with incredible ease.
Can Liposuction Give You a Smaller Waist?
Liposuction will permanently remove fat cells from your problem areas. The procedure will give you the smaller waistline you desire. That being said, the results are only permanent if you are committed to living a healthy lifestyle afterward. By eating right and staying active, you’ll be able to keep the fat off and enjoy your curvy, slimmer body for years to come.
VASER stands for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance. VASER’s cannula emits gentle vibrations before aspirating fat away on jets of reverse pressure. The technique allows for more precise sculpting and maneuvering, empowering Dr. Friedlander to mold and carve your hips in ways that would have been unimaginable in generations past.
Are Flanks and Hips the Same?
The hips lay just below the flanks on either side of the body. Because the flanks tend to seamlessly transition into the hips, Dr. Friedlander usually treats these areas together as a single unit, giving the most effective results.
Many women have a form that is out of balance for one reason or another. Friedlander shall restore your symmetry with liposuction at the hips. If you desire a more contoured figure, you will want to consider this safe and transformative procedure.
Liposuction of the Waist
Many patients confuse liposuction of the abdomen with liposuction of the waist. Sculpting the waist targets the flanks, or “love handles” that may bulge from your hips. Dr. Friedlander’s liposculpture procedures will make your waist can appear narrower and more contoured, enhancing the highly-desired “hourglass” shape.
Does Vaser Lipo Tighten Skin?
Yes, VASER liposculpture promotes skin tightening. Due to the uniform energy distribution of VASER liposuction, the procedure can tighten the skin and promote skin retraction better than other forms of liposuction.
Who Is a Candidate for Waist Liposculpture?
If you can pinch more than two centimeters of fatty tissue between your fingers at your waist, you will probably achieve a real benefit from liposculpture by Friedlander.

Give Yourself a Hug Around the Hips

Does Fat Return After Liposuction?
If you do not maintain a healthy lifestyle, weight and mass can return to your hips and waist. In general, the more weight gained by a patient after liposuction, the less dramatic their results will be. Even though liposuction permanently removes fat cells from the body, all of your remaining fat cells will get a little bigger. While this slight weight gain can diminish results, the overall improved body shape provided by a liposuction procedure will still be visible.

One of the major benefits of VASER liposuction, when compared to traditional liposuction methods, is the minimal amount of damage to surrounding tissues, and most importantly, the ability to remove the most superficial fat. VASER liposuction uses a small incision and its soundwaves liquefy the fat before it is removed from the body. Liquefying the fat has the potential to increase the accuracy of the procedure because it makes the fat easier to remove. In addition to that, it could also minimize the damage inflicted upon surrounding tissues. Fat cells removed during a VASER liposuction are specifically targeted which allows the surgeon to provide the patient with a smoother and more sculpted end result.
Liposuction performed under safe and proper anesthesia will result in less post-operative pain and decreases the risk of unforeseen complications. Some patients require prescribed pain medication to manage the temporary discomfort. Fortunately, the duration of any discomfort will be short. The pain will be the most intense two to four days after the procedure then gradually lessens. Tenderness and soreness are typical but will eventually fade.
Before your body contouring surgery, it is important to set a goal weight for yourself. It is recommended that, for best results, you be within 30 pounds of your ideal weight before undergoing liposuction. This number may be more or less depending on body type, but 30 pounds is a reasonable weight loss goal. If you need to lose closer to 100 pounds, you should attempt natural weight loss. Those who require more dramatic weight loss may need body contouring in combination with their liposuction.
