Vanquish ME ™ Fat Removal
Non-Surgical Body Contouring in Boston
Interested in non-surgical fat removal in Boston? As a top plastic surgeon serving Boston, Wellesley and the surrounding areas, Dr. William E. LoVerme prides himself on staying on top of the latest advances in body contouring. The esteemed surgeon now offers BTL’s Vanquish ME, a minimally invasive, FDA-approved procedure for individuals who struggle with stubborn fat bulges on the abdomen and thighs. Unlike liposuction and traditional fat removal techniques, Vanquish ME does not involve surgery. Instead, it uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to target and eliminate fat cells in the treatment area quickly and painlessly. The result is a slimmer and attractive body contour.
Candidacy for Vanquish ME
Ideal candidates for Vanquish ME are individuals who are at a healthy weight, but have stubborn pockets of fat on the abdomen and/or thighs that are resistant to diet and exercise. Women who are currently pregnant or breastfeeding are not eligible for treatment with Vanquish ME. Dr. LoVerme meets with every patient individually to determine whether Vanquish ME is the right treatment option for them. The trusted surgeon will take into consideration various factors including the patient’s anatomy, aesthetic concerns and goals before recommending a treatment plan. Unlike other non-invasive fat reduction machines (such as Cool Sculpt and SculpSure) there are no BMI limits for treatment. This makes it a much more universal machine which can remove higher volumes of fat than any other non-invasive method.
During Vanquish ME (the ME stands for “Maximum Energy”), the treatment hand piece hovers above the treatment area, emitting radiofrequency energy. The energy heats up the fat cells until they are destroyed. Over time, the body filters the damaged fat cells through the natural lymphatic system.
Vanquish ME is an in-office procedure that takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. The procedure is painless; some patients compare the feeling of treatment to that of sitting under a warm blanket. The treatment hand piece does not come in contact with the body, leaving the overlying skin, hair follicles and sweat glands unharmed.
The Benefits of Vanquish ME
Vanquish ME offers several benefits for patients who struggle with fat bulges but do not wish to undergo surgery. Benefits include:
- No anesthesia, injections or incisions needed
- No-contact treatment; overlying skin is left undamaged
- Quick treatment
- Minimal side effects
- No downtime
What to Expect After Treatment
Because there is no downtime associated with Vanquish ME, patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. Vigorous exercise should be avoided for the remainder of the day. Following treatment, the skin may be tender, warm or slightly red. These side effects are minor and should subside quickly. Patients notice an improvement in their figure as soon as two weeks after treatment. The final results from Vanquish ME become visible approximately two to three months after treatment.
Most patients need several treatment sessions (typically four to six spaced a week apart) to achieve optimal results. Patients are advised to maintain their slimmer and toned appearance through healthy diet and exercise.
