The most common technique for leg liposuction is Vaser 360 Leg Contouring. The legs can be a very delicate area, so Vaser is a lot more beneficial than the traditional liposuction techniques. With Vaser 360 Leg Contouring, the surgeon can treat the legs circumferentially, meaning it can treat the leg with a full 360-degree rotation. Most patients who come to the clinic for leg liposuction will be treated with the Vaser 360 Leg Contouring technique since it is less invasive than other cosmetic surgery procedures.
Yes, the cosmetic procedure method can be used to treat calves and ankles. Common areas for treatment include the bulge of fat just below the knee. Given the location of this fat, patients can have a hard time removing this fat through diet and exercise.
Leg fat can be very persistent, this is something that most people are very familiar with. The amount of localised fat in the legs can be determined by your genes, so the accumulation of fat in the legs can also be caused by a genetic predisposition as well as overweight.
Another problem with leg fat is the fact that it is mainly superficial. The legs do not have deep compartments where excess fat can be stored, leading to the fat coming to the surface quite quickly.
Diet and exercise can certainly help to reduce the amount of fat on the legs; however, it depends on
your body type. Patients who already have a predisposition for leg fat will find it a lot more difficult
to remove excess fat through exercise and diet. Leg liposuction can provide the solution for
persistent, localised leg fat.
Certain areas are more prone to the accumulation of fat than others. The inner thighs and outer thighs are especially prone, and often remarkably resistant to weight loss and exercise. Therefore, many patients seek liposuction surgery to remove the fat deposits from these areas of the body.
A liposuction procedure can be executed under local anaesthetic or general anaesthetic. The type of anaesthetic used heavily depends on the surgical procedure and the amount of fat that needs to be removed.
Before a leg liposuction procedure, it is important to speak to the cosmetic surgeon about whether you are a good candidate for the procedure. Patients who store a considerable amount of fat on their thighs and have been trying to eliminate the fat with diet and exercise without great success are good candidates for the leg liposuction procedure. Many patients who seek surgical fat removal often attempted losing the fat with diet and exercise first but found that the fat was too persistent.
Leg liposuction can also be a good procedure for patients who have been working to get toned legs but had little success in doing so. Some fats can be very stubborn, even with a good diet and regular exercise. Leg liposuction is therefore also a good option for patients in good physical condition but with a stubborn leg fat problem. If there is cellulite, then Dr Lanzer may recommend the Cellulaze device.
Vaser 360 Leg Contouring can be executed on the inner, outer, front and back thighs. During the procedure, the surgeon will use special ultrasound technology, which is meant to break down the persistent fat cells in the subcutaneous layer of the skin. Once the fat has been broken down, the surgeon can remove it from the leg in liquid form.
To remove the fat from the leg, the surgeon needs to insert a small tube in the area containing the localised fat. The small tube used in the procedure is often referred to as a cannula, an advanced tool that enables the surgeon to remove the fat from the leg with a minimum amount of disruption.
Once the cannula is inserted into the target area, it will emit energy pulses that target the fat cells specifically. The breakdown of the fat cells will effectively separate them from important tissue, such as nerves and blood vessels. Once the fat has completely broken down, the surgeon will remove the fat through gentle suction.
As mentioned before, most patients will experience a slight level of discomfort after the procedure. There may also be some slight bruising, which usually subsides a few weeks after the procedure. Most patients are required to wear a special compression garment to reduce some of the bruising and swelling coming from the procedure, but also to help the area conform to its new shape after the sculpting procedure.
Most patients can leave the Dr Lanzer clinic immediately after the Vaser procedure. However, before you can leave you will be evaluated by Dr Lanzer and the medical staff. You will also get plenty of information concerning the aftercare before and after the procedure, so you will be fully aware of what to expect once you had the procedure done.
Most patients who had Vaser 360 Leg Contouring only experience a small amount of pain, which can be treated effectively with over-the-counter painkillers. Dr Lanzer can also prescribe you some pain medication or antibiotics depending on your situation.
An increasingly large number of patients now opt for Leg Liposuction procedures. With this method fat is removed from the outer thigh, front of the thigh and medial thigh and inner knees.

Vaser liposuction is a very beneficial cosmetic surgery procedure and is used on other parts of the body as well. It also enables the surgeon to tackle body fat in very small areas, leading to a more precise treatment with better results.
In addition to providing patients with great results, Vaser liposuction also reduces the downtime after the procedure. Vaser and MicroAire may cause less bruising than traditional liposuction and patients will only experience some slight discomfort for a few days after the procedure has taken place.
Since incisions are necessary to perform leg liposuction, patients should expect some form of scarring after the treatment. However, Dr Lanzer aims to keep scars to a minimum after a procedure; by making the incisions in strategic locations. If you have any questions or concerns about scarring nonetheless, we urge you to relay your concerns to Dr Lanzer before your procedure takes place.
The prices for leg liposuction are usually different for every patient since the amount of fat to be removed and the individual requirements of the patient can be different too.

Liposuction on your legs begins at $3,995 plus hospital fees, subject to consultation. Leg pricing is also dependant on the areas of the legs looking to be treated.
Dr Lanzer suggests resting for one-two weeks after your procedure. If you had general anesthesia for your procedure, please refrain from making important decisions for at least twenty-four hours. Of course, not all tumescent liposuctions are done under general anaesthesia, but it is important to consider this factor nonetheless.
A post-op requirement of Liposuction is wearing compression garments. This along with leg elevation will assist in reducing swelling in the legs.
Lower leg liposuction is a liposuction procedure performed below the knees. The procedure can be executed on one or both legs. The procedure has the same goal as overall leg liposuction, more specifically removing persistent fats from targeted areas.
