Is VelaShape® or Liposuction Right for Your Body Contouring Goals?

Once you’ve decided to go after your goals, there’s not much that can stop you. But when you’re deciding the best way to achieve your ideal body, you have a few options to consider. What’s the best method of body contouring to get you to your goals? Nonsurgical options like VelaShape®? Or is traditional liposuction the best route?

VelaShape® Explained

VelaShape is a non-invasive option for body contouring and cellulite reduction. It uses a combination of infrared light, bipolar radiofrequency energy and a vacuum to heat fat cells, surrounding connective tissue and collagen fibers in the skin. This is designed to stimulate collagen and elastin production to help you achieve a more taught, toned figure. VelaShape can be used on the neck, arms, thighs, backside, flanks and abdomen.

You should be able to gradually see the results of your treatments, but most clients opt for 3 sessions for best results.

Nonsurgical Body Contouring vs. Lipo

Where liposuction and VelaShape differ is largely in their invasiveness and their recovery time. With VelaShape, each treatment takes about 30 to 40 minutes and you can resume your normal activity right after. Liposuction, on the other hand, is an invasive surgery with significant recovery time.

The best way to determine which is right for you — nonsurgical body contouring vs. lipo — is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Moein. In your consultation, you’ll discuss your goals, what you can expect to achieve and ultimately which procedure is right for you.
