What is VASER Liposuction?

VASER technology utilizes the power of ultrasound to provide surgeons with a minimally invasive, highly versatile device. Because VASER liposuction with the VASER precision body contouring device is designed to give surgeons precision control, the results are unmatched. VASER stands for “Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance”. This simply means the device sends out special ultrasound waves that can break down fat cells. Once the fat cells are broken down, your surgeon can remove them through suction.

How is VASER Liposuction Different Than Other Forms of Liposuction?

VASER liposuction (VASERlipo) is similar to regular liposuction in the sense that an incision is used to access the target area. A tube is then inserted into this area and fat is ultimately suctioned out via a tube. VASER technology, however, makes it possible for this to be done on a smaller scale, thus, it is less invasive. The VASER body contouring device is still able to target large areas of fat, but it also can address delicate areas of the body due to its high control factor.

Am I a Candidate for VASER Liposuction?

If you are already at your target weight and are in good general health, you may be an excellent candidate for VASER liposuction. It is important to realize that a healthy lifestyle must be maintained after your VASERlipo procedure to maintain excellent results. You must have some amount of collagen and elastin available in your skin for the procedure to result in tightened skin. You may be a good candidate for VASER liposuction if you fit these criteria and desire the following benefits:

  • Lose inches from your waist, hips, or thighs
  • Tighten skin that remains after recent weight loss
  • Add muscle definition and tone without losing more weight

You are not a good candidate for VASER liposuction if you are not currently healthy, are taking any blood thinners, are currently obese, or are pregnant. If you have poor skin elasticity, other excellent options may still be available to you at NassifMD Medical Spa.

Benefits of VASER Liposuction

The major benefit of VASER liposuction is that when compared to traditional liposuction, there is far less damage to surrounding tissue.

This is because the VASER liposuction device uses a smaller incision than traditional liposuction which, for many, is a benefit in itself. Also, the soundwaves used in VASER technology liquefy the fat before it is suctioned.

As the fat cells are loosened, it allows for greater accuracy in fat removal and makes it easier to remove, with less stress on the body. All of this results in less damage to the skin and underlying tissue which translates into less recovery time. Because VASER technology is so precise, the result is smooth and highly uniform. Since VASER uses ultrasound during the procedure, another benefit of VASER liposuction is tightened skin.

Where can VASER Liposuction Be Done?

Because it is so gentle, VASER liposuction is extremely versatile and can be performed in the following areas:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Jawline
  • Chin
  • Legs

What is the Recovery Time for VASER Liposuction?

After your VASERlipo procedure, you will be able to return home immediately, however, you will need to wait 2-3 days before you will be able to resume normal activities. Because VASERlipo is minimally invasive, your recovery should be smooth and relatively quick.
