Fat Removal Q & A

What is fat removal?

Despite dieting, exercise, and other efforts, you may have noticed that some fat pockets are relentless. Dr. Sarti offers an array of fat removal treatments, including Vanquish®, that target your problem areas because he understands the challenges associated with fat removal.

How does the Vanquish fat removal system work?

The Vanquish device never touches your body. You simply lay under it for around 30 minutes. The position of the device is usually over your stomach, waist, and back. The sensors in the device detect your body fat and adjust the energy to the correct setting.

The Vanquish system heats the subcutaneous fat and kills the fat cells. Your body later eliminates them through your lymphatic system.

Different types of lasers and different wavelengths address certain cosmetic concerns. The Vanquish radiofrequency technology is a painless approach to body contouring and can treat large areas. Multiple sessions might be needed for best results.

After your treatment, you might experience mild redness or swelling in the area, but this typically dissipates within a few hours.

What are the benefits of fat removal and skin tightening with Vanquish and Exilis® Ultra?

There are many benefits of combining noninvasive fat removal and skin-tightening treatments.


Vanquish is an alternative to liposuction for men and women who want the impressive results and fat reduction but don’t want a major surgery that comes with extensive downtime, incisions, potential scarring, and risks.

The revolutionary Vanquish system offers many benefits. There’s no downtime and no anesthesia. Many men and women are drawn to this painless, quick, and effective outpatient procedure.


Many forms of fat removal and fat reduction can sometimes leave sagging and loose skin. That's where treatments like the Exilis Ultra radiofrequency come in: They tighten, smooth, and plump your skin.

Exilis uses radiofrequency waves combined with ultrasound technology to promote the natural production of collagen and elastin. This treatment diminishes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and more by using monopolar radiofrequency energy delivered into multiple levels of the skin. Exilis can also perform spot fat reduction, and like Vanquish, produces impressive results without any downtime.

The Exilis treatment is effective on different body parts:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Knees
  • Stomach
  • Upper arms
