Cosmetic ServicesVail Health offers cosmetic services and treatments including minimally invasive body contouring, liposuction, Botox®and dermal fillers.
Body ContouringVail Health offers awake, in-office body contouring using the VASERlipo® ultrasonic system. In-office body contouring can be a much less stressful way to contour and improve your body. Patients are treated with local anesthetics and remain conscious throughout the procedure. Body contouring procedures are commonly done on the arms, chest, chin and neck, upper back, waistline, hips, thighs and buttocks.
Benefits of an awake, in-office body contouring procedure include:
- EASIER RECOVERY: After an awake, in-office liposuction procedure, patients are able to walk with a caretaker to the car within 15 to 20 minutes after completion of the procedure. Since patients take oral medications for procedure, they will not be able to drive home and will need to have a responsible adult caretaker with them for 24 hours after the procedure.
- LOWER OVERALL COST: Surgical facilities and anesthesiologists’ fees can add cost to cosmetic procedures at other locations, but in-office procedures do not require an anesthesiologist or hospital operating room, which lowers out-of-pocket expense.
- DECREASED RISK OF INFECTION: Data shows that procedures completed while patients are awake in the office have a lower risk of postoperative infections and complications. While this is true across all procedure types, individual responses may vary. Overall, choosing an in-office, awake procedure is a very safe choice.
