VASER is a third-generation ultrasound device used for body sculpting. Using ultrasound waves to penetrate and then emulsify fat, this type of liposuction is extremely efficient, safe and very precise. This device allows the liposuction surgeon greater precision in sculpting, with minimal blood loss. For this reason, high volumes of fat can be safely extracted with the VASER system for beautiful, natural-looking results. Patients who undergo body contouring with VASER typically have less swelling, pain and bruising after surgery leading to a much quicker recovery from their surgery.

- Has healthy, firm skin tone
VASER® Liposuction Treatment Details
Depending on the extensiveness of the treatment and the number of areas being treated, this procedure may be performed on either an inpatient or outpatient basis, and can take anywhere from one to three hours to complete. During a VASER liposuction treatment, the area being treated will be injected with an anesthetic liquid which will numb the area and create a pocket from which the surgeon can remove a larger portion of fat with ease. Small incisions will be made in the treated area and an ultrasonic probe will be inserted which will emit ultrasonic waves that will destroy the fat cells. A cannula (a thin hollow tube used to suction out fat) will then be inserted to remove the excess fat from the area. Incisions will be closed with sutures.
Recovery from VASER® Liposuction
The post-operative course following VASER Liposuction is dependent on the volume of fat removed. Patients undergoing large volume fat removal are usually required to stay overnight for recovery and are sent home the following day. A compression garment will need to be worn to aid the healing process. There will be swelling and bruising for the first week after surgery. Most patients can return to work within four to five days. It is important to avoid strenuous activity for two to three weeks.
You will notice an improvement in your body contour immediately following your VASER liposuction treatment, but the final results won’t be seen until three to six months afterwards.
