What is Vaser Liposuction?

Vaser (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) liposuction is another treatment option to remove stubborn fat. As a safe and effective alternative to a traditional liposuction treatment, the Vaser method can improve shape, contour, and definition in areas such as in the abdomen, back, and waistline for improved body contour.

How Does Vaser Liposuction Work?

Prior to beginning Vaser liposuction, a solution is applied to cause tissue swelling in the area being treated. Next, ultrasound energy is used to target stubborn fat areas to separate and loosen the fat cells. The final step is similar to traditional liposuction as a small cannula is used to suction out the fat cells, eliminating them for good.

Benefits over Traditional Liposuction

While both procedures are effective fat removal options, Vaser liposuction has a few added benefits. Because Vaser liposuction uses ultrasound energy to break up fat cells instead of a tube, the process is much gentler, leading to a quicker recovery with less pain. Most patients are able to return to light exercise within just a few days and all regular activities can be resumed after a few weeks. After your treatment with liposuction, you can get on with your life instead of spending too much time in bed recovering. Vaser also improves the surgeon’s ability to sculpt and define the area being treated, leading to more effective and satisfying results.
