Vaser Liposuction | Precision Body Contouring

This precision body contouring system is minimally invasive and can sculpt and trim hard-to-reach areas of the body, including love handles, thighs, calves, buttocks, ankles, back, chest, and can define muscle groups to produce a tight, firm, athletic look.

How Does Vaser Liposuction Work?

The VaserLipo system can produce far superior results when compared to traditional liposuction, which required a longer recovery time and often left patients with an uneven, lumpy look, or lack of skin retraction. This advanced liposuction system uses sound waves to break up fat, without damaging the surrounding tissues.

Prior to treatment, the area to be treated will be filled with a special solution that numbs the area and shrinks the blood vessels to greatly reduce the risk of bleeding or bruising. The solution swells the fat cells. After the application of this solution, a sound energy-emitting probe is passed beneath the skin. This probe essentially “shakes” the fat cells loose from the surrounding tissue, after which its suction feature extracts the expanded fat cells. One of the most significant advantages of this advanced body sculpting system is that just the fat cells are gently and effectively extracted.

VaserLipo vs. Traditional Liposuction

While traditional liposuction treatments were effective in extracting excess fat, this method was hard on the patient’s body, and required many weeks of recovery time. Traditional liposuction simply extracted the fat, and had a damaging impact upon the surrounding tissue, and led to extensive bruising and bleeding in many cases. When the blood vessels are damaged, the recovery time will be longer, and less comfortable.

The VaserLipo system does not damage the surrounding tissue, as the fat is gently shaken free from the surrounding tissue prior to gently extracting the cells. With less blood loss, less inflammation, and less pain, patients are back to their normal lives within days – not weeks or months. Some of our patients are interested in an added procedure – natural fat grafting – and the fat cells extracted by the VaserLipo system are left intact and can be injected to create more volume in buttocks, breasts, or other body area.
