Dr. Patricia Berbari (00:05) Liposuction is an old procedure—the Classical Liposuction. We're proud to be able to offer new technologies with the liposuction, which are the SmartLipo, it's laser-assisted liposuction, and the VaserLipo, ultrasound-assisted liposuction. Dr. Patricia Berbari (00:22) These two technologies will help also tighten the skin after we remove the fat. A good candidate for liposuction is a patient who has extra unwanted amount of fat, and that is not overly obese. We need to have BMI under 32 to be able to have nice results. People who are overweight need to go on a diet before we do the liposuction. Dr. Patricia Berbari (00:49) Depending on the area that needs to be liposuction, it might take between 1-3 hours. The safe amount to remove is less than 3 liters in one session, so we can separate the treatments if somebody wants multiple areas. Recovery from liposuction with the SmartLipo or the VaserLipo takes 24 to 48 hours.
