Which is Best: Liposuction or Vanquish Fat Reduction?

Vanquish allows permanent, non-invasive fat removal. Appointments generally require 45 minutes with same day return to your activities. This “lunch time” procedure typically reduces inches off your waistline or thighs.

Liposuction involves surgical removal of fat via small incisions whereas Vanquish Fat Reduction uses non-surgical radiofrequency to heat and permanently remove fat cells. While liposuction provides results in one to two surgical sessions, the Vanquish may need one to five sessions to achieve the results you want. However, the Vanquish procedure is completely non-invasive and involves no recuperation time. You can have this fat reduction method performed on your lunch hour. While liposuction can cover a wider range of body areas than Vanquish (which is for the tummy and thighs / upper legs), many prefer the no down time of Vanquish. Liposuction may be a better option when treating larger amount of fat removal or body areas other than your abdomen, back, or legs. During your complimentary consultation, you will discuss your individual goals and objectives with Dr. Chilukuri.
