Liposuction vs. VelaShape Non-Surgical Body Contouring

Liposuction vs. VelaShape Non-Surgical Body Contouring | Las VegasLiposuction is the most sought-after plastic surgery procedure in the United States today.

Due to the availability of less invasive surgical techniques, a higher number of people seek this procedure to eliminate stubborn, undesirable fatty deposits in specific body areas.

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides body contouring procedures to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding locations.


Traditional Liposuction

The surgeon will place a small incision in the treatment area. They will then insert a cannula connected to a suction pump through this incision.

The surgeon will manipulate the cannula to dislodge fat cells. The fat cells will then be suctioned out with the pump to restore an enhanced contour.


Tumescent Liposuction

The tumescent liposuction technique is similar to traditional liposuction cosmetic surgery. However, in this procedure, the surgeon injects a special anesthetic and saline solution in the targeted fatty deposits.

A large amount of fluid will cause undesirable cells to swell. This makes it easier for the surgeon to isolate and remove them. Tumescent liposuction is a more targeted procedure and does not involve general anesthesia.


Ultrasonic Liposuction

This technique involves the use of ultrasonic waves, which are delivered into the fat pockets through a specialized cannula.

The heat energy produced through ultrasound causes the fat to liquefy, making its removal more convenient. Dense and substantial fat deposits can be addressed with this procedure in a less invasive way.


Laser Liposuction

Laser liposuction involves the use of laser energy to break down fat cells. This is a more targeted and less invasive technique as it does the aggressive manual dislodging of the fat tissue. The surrounding healthy tissue remains unaffected, and desired outcomes can be accomplished more effectively.


VelaShape II – Non-Surgical Body Contouring

The VelaShape II body reshaping system has been developed by leading cosmetic device company, Syneron Candela. This is an advanced, non-surgical technology that enables patients to achieve defined body contours, reduce circumference and cellulite, and enhance the skin tone and texture.


How does VelaShape II Work?

In this procedure, Bi-polar radiofrequency (RF) and infrared (IR) technologies work together to delicately heat fat tissue at the optimal treatment depths of up to 3 mm and 15 mm respectively.

Subsequently, vacuum and mechanical tissue manipulation stimulate fibroblast activity and precise energy delivery. These innovative technologies enhance circulation, collagen production, cellular metabolism, and lymphatic drainage.


Aesthetic Benefits of VelaShape


  • Reduce skin laxity, sagginess, and looseness
  • Decreased volume and circumference of excess fatty tissue in the treatment sites
  • Noticeable reduction in the appearance of cellulite
  • Tight, smooth skin texture



Advanced Applicator

The advanced and flexible VelaShape II applicator design enables the treatment of more body areas than ever before.

The VSmooth applicator is designed for larger areas such as the abdomen, thighs, or buttocks. The VContour applicator, on the other hand, is suitable for smaller sites such as the calves, arms, and flanks.

Patients will ideally need to undergo an initial series of six to ten-week treatment sessions to achieve excellent outcomes. After the initial sessions, the patient should receive one maintenance treatment session each month.


Removal of Cellulite with VelaShape

VelaShape II combines four distinct technologies, namely RF, bi-polar, infrared, and mechanical tissue manipulation through pulse vacuum and massage rollers. The RF and IR technologies generate deep heat in the precise connective tissue including the fibrous septae.

This improves the production of fresh collagen and enhances localized cellular metabolism providing the patient with dramatic enhancements in skin elasticity and volume.
