Board-certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Amir Moradi offers Vanquish fat reduction treatments at Moradi MD in San Diego, CA. All Vanquish treatments are performed in our office by our board Certified Physician Assistants, or licensed Aestheticians.
Vanquish Fat Reduction is a non-invasive and comfortable procedure. For the patient’s benefit, Dr. Moradi uses the most recent iteration of the Vanquish Fat Reduction and Removal device, the Vanquish ME™. This updated technology allows for even more effective tuning and precise energy control. Because of this, Dr. Moradi is able to treat not only the abdomen, flanks, and legs, but also the arms. This FDA-cleared technique safely removes unwanted fat in order to tighten and tone the body while improving body contours.
During treatment the Vanquish device will be applied to directly hover over the treated area. During the procedure (which typically takes about 45 minutes), the Vanquish applicator will use radio frequency to heat and kill fat cells. While Vanquish’s built-in heat sensors will ensure that the external skin never exceeds 101 degrees Fahrenheit, the underlying fat cells may reach up to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. This heat is enough to destroy the fat cells so that they can be naturally eliminated from the body, but not enough to cause any type of damage.
Vanquish ME™ is a comfortable treatment and does not require the use of anesthesia. Patients will feel a warming sensation along the treatment area that may continue for a couple of hours after treatment. In addition, some patients may experience some minor swelling in the treatment area, which should subside within a couple of hours after treatment is complete.
