What is VASER Lipo?

Vaser Lipo is shorthand for VASER liposuction which stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. VASER is the Gold Standard in available liposuction techniques. VASER lipo utilizes ultrasound energy to gently convert fat clusters that are semisolid into single-cell units that are of liquid consistency.

The analogy that we use with our patients is to think of a cluster of grapes on the vine that then is gently shaken to drop their grapes. The conversion of semisolid to liquid fat cells occurs by a process called cavitation wherein the ultrasound wave expands air bubbles in between fat cells allowing them to free up. VASER lipo is unique in that it provides the three important advantages over other liposuction modalities.

Selective removal of Superficial Fat

Next, VASER liposuction allows for the advantage of the removal of fat from both the superficial as well as deep layers. This is in contrast to traditional liposuction that has been limited to fat removal from only the deep layer. This is because liposuction cannulas can only penetrate the deep fat layer that is free of pillars called retaining cutaneous ligaments. This ligament compartmentalizes the superficial layer of fat and disallows the free movement of liposuction cannulas.

It is important to consider that proper liposuction requires the removal of fat uniformly throughout to avoid botched liposuction results such as waviness or unevenness. Because of this prerequisite, the superficial fat layer that is compartmentalized cannot be defatted using liposuction cannulas.

Deep Fat Layer

Attempts at the removal of this layer will result in contour irregularities such as divots and concavities. Instead, VASER liposuction uses narrow gauged rods to first melt the fat in both the superficial and deep layers. Once the fat is melted, it can be removed from both the deep layer as well as the superficial. Although the liposuction cannulas are still positioned in the deep layer to siphon the fat, the superficial liquid fat can now be pressed into the deep layer by the use of compression coupling.

Compression coupling describes the use of the non-dominant hand which is used to press and selectively sculpt the muscles highlights in the body. This is how we can achieve abdominal etching and the creation of a four-pack for females and six-pack for males. Ultimately, VASER liposuction allows for an advanced body sculpting technique that allows your surgeon to remove the unwanted fat surrounding your muscles to create a toned, athletic appearance.

Optimized Brazilian Buttock Outcomes

VASER liposuction has been shown to be a gentler technique for fat removal. This is because the melting of the fat cells into a liquid single cell allows for a gentler journey of fat cells as they are siphoned through liposuction cannulas. This is in contrast to traditional liposuction which pierces fat cells and likely nicks their membranes.

Once transferred into the buttock, it seems that approximately 40 % of the fat cells are reabsorbed from the buttock when evaluated at six months. This is likely due to fat cell death following transfer and then the body's mechanism to remove the fat cells from the area. This is in contrast to reports of 90 % graft take and near full volume retention following VASER harvested fat cells into the buttock.

VASER lipo Conclusion

VASER High-definition Liposuction is considered a “Game Changer” in the body contouring liposuction arena. Today, fat cells can be completely removed throughout the deep layers and selectively over the superficial layers to provide high definition liposuction results.

High definition liposuction has brought into consideration true artistry involving contouring the body, with muscle highlights, and natural yet stunning outcomes. This artistic and highly-skilled component of VASER HD Liposuction is exactly why it is critical that your Surgeon has many years of experience and be an expert on muscle anatomy and localized and various depths of fat accumulation.

Surgery Overview

Procedure: VASER liposuction surgery requires the use of cavitation or the melting of fat prior to being siphoned out.

Length: VASER liposuction surgery can be performed in 3 to 4 hours.

Anesthesia: VASER liposuction surgery can be performed under regional or general anesthesia.

Place of Treatment: Surgical suite

Side Effects: Residual contour irregularities.

Recovery: VASER liposuction surgery patients will require 10 days of recovery prior to returning to work and physical functions.

Duration of Outcomes: VASER liposuction surgery will traditionally provide permanent results as long as patients do not undergo major weight gain.

Frequently Asked Questions:

This surgery refers to advancement in surgical algorithms wherein the fat cell removal is optimized through the use of ultrasound energy that cavitates or melts the fat prior to removal.

You are a good candidate for VASER liposuction surgery if you are desiring a more chiseled appearance, more sculpted contour, and stunning outcomes.

First, your entire body will be examined to check the degree of fat excess and skin redundancy that will guide your customized surgical plan. In addition, your health status will be evaluated and your laboratory values checked. Your nutrition will also be optimized to prepare you for surgery.

The most common concern following VASER liposuction surgery is to have contour irregularities related to skin redundancy. All efforts are made to ensure that skin redundancy will be eliminated by either tucking of the abdominal skin as well as minimally invasive skin tightening with Renuvion J plasma.

VASER liposuction surgery is performed using VASER ultrasound-assisted liposuction that allows for not only comprehensive removal of fat but also selective removal of fat to allow for the creation of muscle highlights.

VASER liposuction surgery recovery is tolerable with minimal to moderate pain. This is because VASER is felt to be gentler on nerves and vessels in the subcutaneous tissues as it melts the fat away from these structures. In addition, siphoning rather than a harsher piercing motion is required to remove the fat making it less traumatic to the above structures.

VASER liposuction surgery utilizes small port size incisions measuring 3 to 4mm that are well hidden in the pubic region, belly button, crease below the chest, and in the intragluteal or intergluteal creases.

There are negligible scars following VASER liposuction surgery.

You can typically return home following VASER liposuction surgery unless more extensive surgeries are being performed synchronously.

Since fat removal is so comprehensive following VASER liposuction surgery, weight gain will not result in significant contour changes. Remember that once your problem spots have been contoured, you will have a uniform of density throughout your body.

Since incisions are limited typically to port sites, liposuction clients are expected to return to routine daily physical activities within 10 days.

You will notice an improvement in your appearance right away following VASER liposuction surgery. You will notice a total transformation of your entire body even the day after surgery, but patients will observe generalized swelling at 1 week which will resolve after 1 month following surgery.
