Have you struggled with weight gain,and exercise and diet haven’t given you the improvement you desire? Ask Dr. Otis Allen about how VASERlipo® in Bloomington, Illinois, can help. This technique uses minimally invasive liposuction technology to produce outstanding results in just one treatment. VASERlipo targets fat while protecting the other tissues from damage. This procedure can provide simple improvements in a specific area or full-body transformations. VASERlipo can eliminate considerable areas of fat, yet is still gentle enough to treat delicate areas like the neck and arms.


The VASERlipo procedure can be performed while you are awake or under general anesthesia. Our plastic surgeon will use ultrasound energy to treat unwanted fat. The cells are loosened from other tissues and gently removed through a small tube. Depending on the size and number of areas being treated, the procedure can take from one hour to several hours.

Post-Operative Care

After the procedure, the patient will wear a compression garment to help the skin contract smoothly to the new contours of the body. Twelve hours of rest is recommended, followed by two to three weeks when strenuous activities should be avoided.
