With vibration assisted liposuction, patients can achieve a leaner, smoother, and more attractive body contour. The liposuction can reduce unwanted fat from a variety of trouble-spots, and the advanced technology Health and Beauty Physicians uses can offer better results and an easier recovery.

*Individual results may vary

Dr. Howard Sutkin supports patients whose aesthetic goals include:

  • A shapelier abdomen, hips, thighs, back, and buttocks.
  • Leaner “love-handles,” neck, arms, and knees.
  • Reduced fat in the breasts, including for men with gynecomastia.

The Benefits of Vibration Assisted Liposuction

A liposuction procedure targets and reduces small amounts of fat from areas of your body using a suctioning cannula. Collectively, these subtle changes can significantly enhance your figure.

At Health and Beauty Physicians, we provide vibration assisted liposuction because of the advancement it represents in the liposuction surgery. Rather than relying on friction to dislodge fat (as in traditional liposuction) and rather than generating heat (as in laser liposuction), our technology uses air pressure-activated cannulas that vibrate at high speed.

As a result, we have found that vibration assisted liposuction offers:

  • Greater comfort. Vibration can reduce fat with less harm to your surrounding tissue and nerves. This means less swelling, bruising, and discomfort after surgery.
  • Shorter procedures. Dr. Sutkin is able to complete vibration assisted liposuction for patients more efficiently than through traditional liposuction because of its accuracy and ease in reducing fat.
  • Increased skin tightening. The vibration can encourage your body to produce collagen, which can improve the elasticity of your skin in the treated area.*
  • Fat re-use. If your surgical plan includes grafting fat to other areas of the body to add natural lift and volume, vibration assisted liposuction can protect donor fat better than laser liposuction.
  • Smoother results. The technology allows Dr. Sutkin to sculpt a more even surface for the fat that is left behind, limiting the frequency and severity of tissue irregularities.

What Vibration Assisted Liposuction Patients Can Expect

Start with an initial liposuction consultation. Dr. Sutkin will review the procedure with you, talk about what you want to accomplish, and help you set expectations for your results. Patients should understand that liposuction is for effective body contouring rather than significant weight loss.

Transparency, high-quality care, and a conservative approach are the hallmarks of treatment at Health and Beauty Physicians. Before surgery, you will receive a thorough physical examination, offer a medical history, and provide records from your primary care physician.

On the day of your vibration assisted liposuction procedure:

  • You will receive local tumescent anesthesia, which ensures your comfort during surgery. Using this approach rather than general anesthesia reduces risk and minimizes bleeding.
  • Dr. Sutkin makes very small incisions and uses a smaller version of the typical cannula to loosen and reduce fat.
  • The limited size of the incisions means that most patients do not require sutures. Liposuction procedures typically conclude after four hours, depending on the number of areas treated.

Recovery from Vibration Assisted Liposuction

Dr. Sutkin and his team will provide you with complete instructions for your recovery. As with most patients, you should be able to return to work within a day or two. Expect to visit Health and Beauty Physicians for a checkup 1-2 days after liposuction treatment and then about one week later to follow up on your progress.*

*Recovery time varies from patient to patient

After vibration assisted liposuction:

  • Patients will wear a compression garment for four weeks. This should help with residual swelling.
  • Most patients recover with minimal discomfort.* You can expect some soreness for about two weeks, however, and Dr. Sutkin may recommend ibuprofen or prescription pain medication as needed.
  • You may experience some drainage from the incisions over 3-5 days.* Sterile pads and gauze can address these issues.

You should be able to see the final results of your procedure in about 6 to 9 months after the swelling has gone down.* Other than changes in weight or the effects of aging, patients can expect to maintain their results over time. The ideal outcome: a leaner, smoother, and fitter appearance.
