In this situation, many people turn to liposuction to achieve the slimmer, more toned figure they desire. However, traditional liposuction uses relatively harsh methods and isn’t necessarily the best choice for every patient. If you’re interested in an effective alternative that’s a bit easier on your body, you may want to consider VASER liposuction.

What Is VASER Liposuction?

VASER liposuction is an innovative form of liposuction used to remove stubborn pockets of excess fat without as much discomfort or recovery downtime as traditional liposuction. VASER liposuction is very effective for targeting specific areas of fat to contour the body and create a slimmer, more defined body.

Am I a Candidate for VASER Liposuction?

Adults who would like to shed stubborn pockets of excess fat could be good candidates for VASER liposuction. To be an ideal candidate for the treatment, you should meet these requirements:

  • Be in good physical health
  • Be relatively close to your ideal weight
  • Have areas of stubborn excess fat that you’d like to eliminate
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Be capable of maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine

How Does VASER Liposuction Work?

VASER is an acronym that stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. During the VASER liposuction procedure, powerful ultrasound waves are delivered to the targeted areas of excess fat. This ultrasound energy loosens the fat and makes it much easier to remove without disturbing or damaging the surrounding tissue. Then, it’s a simple matter of suctioning the emulsified fat through a narrow cannula.

What Should I Expect During the Procedure?

If you’re interested in undergoing VASER liposuction, you can start the process by having a consultation with Dr. Schwartz or Dr. Stark. This meeting will allow you to learn more about the procedure and get answers to any questions you may have. Your doctor will gain an understanding of your cosmetic goals and work with you to put together a personalized treatment plan.

VASER liposuction is generally performed as an outpatient procedure using local anesthesia with IV sedation.

To begin, your surgeon will make a small incision in the area where excess fat is being targeted. They will then inject a tumescent solution into the treatment area to prepare the tissue for the procedure. Next, the VASER technology will be used to deliver ultrasound waves to the excess fat cells. Finally, a narrow cannula will be inserted through the incision and used to suction out the emulsified fat. Once all of the targeted fat has been removed, your surgeon will remove the cannula, close the incision with stitches, and bandage the area. This process will then be repeated for any additional pockets of excess fat. Overall, VASER liposuction usually takes approximately one to two hours to complete.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

After your VASER liposuction procedure, you should be able to return home within an hour or two, but you will likely need a friend or family member to drive you. Your surgeon will provide you with detailed instructions for the healing process, and you may need to wear a compression garment for several days or weeks following the procedure. Most patients experience some bruising and swelling during recovery, and it will likely take around a week before you’re able to resume your normal routine. However, you should wait two to three weeks before resuming strenuous physical activity.
