A Kinder, Gentler Procedure: Vaser Liposuction

If you are frustrated because dieting and exercising alone are simply not taking care of your problem areas, you may be considering undergoing a liposuction procedure. Not all lipos are created equal, however, so it's important to do plenty of research first and consult with several plastic surgeons before making any decisions. Vaser lipo is one form of liposuction that has become popular in recent years, most especially because it's considered to be an effective yet kinder and gentler procedure for your body.

The Main Differences Between Vaser and Traditional

Unlike traditional liposuction procedures, Vaser lipo uses ultrasound technologies for a more targeted, gentler approach to fat removal. With the highly invasive techniques used in traditional liposuction, nerves, blood vessels, and important connective tissues are more likely to be damaged or disturbed. Unlike traditional liposuction, patients undergoing Vaser lipo have more options during surgery: it can be performed under local anesthesia with the patient remaining awake, under partial sedation, or under general anesthesia. Vaser lip is always performed in a sterile environment for optimum safety.

How Vaser Lipo Works

A saline solution is first injected into targeted areas and this initial procedure serves three functions:

1. To create a wet environment more conducive to the breaking up of fatty tissues
2. To numb the site
3. To minimize the likelihood of bleeding and keep bruising to a minimum.

A small probe is then inserted into the targeted areas where it emits low-frequency sound waves; these waves targets fat cells with great precision, leaving other areas unscathed. The fat cells are broken up and liquidated by the combination of sound waves and saline solution, and are easily able to be gently suctioned out.

What Areas of the Body Are Eligible for Vaser Lipo?

Vaser lipo is effective anywhere you have loose hanging fat such as: stomach, love handles, hips, breasts, thighs, back, arms, and chin. A certain amount of fat on the body is both desirable and necessary, but with Vaser you can have the excess removed leaving you with a more graceful and lithe silhouette.

How Much Does Vaser Lipo Cost?

As with any cosmetic procedure, the cost of Vaser lip will vary greatly depending on factors such as geographical region and availability of Vaser. A good average figure is about 2,500 dollars per target area.

How Long Does It Last?

The long-term results of Vaser lipo are highly individual and will depend on your own lifestyle routine. If you do gain a little weight back as the result of natural aging or other factors, you will still maintain natural proportions. Proper diet and exercise will help you to keep that svelte look much longer.

Thanks to innovative technologies such as Vaser lipo, getting the cosmetic procedures you want are easier on your body and less invasive than ever: it's about time.

Frequently Asked Questions

    Ranging cost of Vaser liposuction on calve/ankle?
    I'm trying to find what the cost would be to have a vaser liposuction treatment preformed to reduce the size of "cankles". I know the prices largely vary, but I've been able to find a few differences in costs of other procedures which have differences of ,000 to ,000 dollars. I was hoping to find the approximate range of Vaser lipo preformed on the calve area.

    (Sorry for the drawn out question, I wanted to be as specific as possible) Thanks in advance.

    Have you done vaser liposuction? Tell me your story!?
    I'm interested in it myself and went for my consultation today. Looks safe!

    • ANSWER:
      Hey! It's Vaser liposelection! Not Liposuction! Liposelection is a whole lot safer and better because it uses ultrasound, so while it melts a ton of fat, it also avoids hurting the other parts of your body.
      However, liposuction only melts little fat and at the same time has a higher risk of hurting your body.

      If you're really interested, I suggest you do vaser Hi Def for optimum results. I bet you it really works!

    What is vaser? Is it laser based liposuction?
    Vaser appears to be all the rage, but isn't liposuction all fundamentally about the "suction" part anyway? So how can it be any different?

    • ANSWER:
      VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance, It has nothing to do with Lasers which is a common misconception.
      Vaser Liposuction: "Vaser" is the important bit, the liposuction is simply the process of removing the fat once it has been liquefied. The liquefaction is achieved using heat/chemicals usually. Vaser is a brand name for a process of ultrasonic fat breakdown. As a result it is not as invasive as standard liposuction and can be classed as “no surgical” although it is to be administered by a medical professional only.
      Vaser or any kind of liposuction are not cures for obesity and can’t be performed if a patient is on Warfarin ( as this thins the blood
    I've decided to do Vaser Liposuction, but I need your help? Picture Included?
    I'm a 22 year old female, in athletic healthy shape. There is something so strange about my body that I've struggled with for years, that I can't seem to fix. I have saggy, fatty upper arms. The rest of my body is toned and great, diet is good. I've even done so many bicep/tricep exercizes, but my arms sag. My mom has extremely saggy arms, but is in great phsyical shape, so it must be genetics.

    I've decided to go with Vaser Liposuction (the one done while you are awake with local anesthesia), but I'm afraid of dying while under. I had a consultation last week and was taken pictures of, etc. and the doctor said I would be a great candidate because I'm healthy, young, etc.

    The receptionist told me she had Vaser Lipo performed on her last week, and showed me her before and after pic, and showed me the garment she was wearing. I asked for other before and after pictures of patients my age, and she told me the doctor just transferred out of a hospital on the east coast and just started his business here. I'm kind of uncomfortable with that, even though she is proof that it went well. They also gave me a great price.

    How would you go about this? It seemed like a real professional environment, I've seen his degrees on the wall, and he was professional when discussing it all with me. Is this safe?

    Also, will my skin bounce back into place once the fat is removed out of my arm or will I have saggy skin?
