How is VASER Liposuction Performed?

Sharing is caring!

Excess body fat is a major concern for many men and women as it impacts their appearance and self-esteem. VASER liposuction, an advanced, minimally invasive body contouring procedure, is performed using ultrasound technology which selectively removes unwanted body fat and gently reshapes the body. Compared to other body contouring technologies, VASER allows precise sculpting of both large and delicate areas such as abdomen, thighs, arms, neck, chin, face, and knees.

The Procedure

In the VASER lipo procedure, a tumescent liquid or saline solution mixed with anesthetics is injected into the treatment area to numb it and to expand the layers of tissue and makes the fat cells easy to remove. The probe emitting ultrasound energy is then inserted into the fat layer through tiny incisions. This high energy ultrasound waves that the probe emits selectively liquefies the fatty tissue and stimulates collagen production for tighter skin. The treatment leaves the surrounding connective tissue, nerves, and blood vessels unaffected. The preservation of these important tissues promotes skin retraction.

The choice of probes helps the plastic surgeon to remove large as well as small volumes of fat from all areas of the body. The loose fat cells combined with the tumescent fluid are easily suctioned off using specially a designed cannula.

Men can also opt to undergo VASER Hi-Def liposuction. The plastic surgeon selectively removes small deposits of fat surrounding specific muscle groups in order to enhance the visibility of the natural muscle contour. This technique results in a chiseled physique with six-pack abs.


Ultrasound liposuction results in a significant reduction in body fat and a tighter appearance of the treated areas. Since it does not involve any large incisions or stitches, patients are able to resume normal activities a few days after the procedure. However, the recovery period may vary among patients depending on the extent of fat removed and the number of areas treated. Minimal swelling and bruising is normal but will subside soon. An improved overall appearance of the treated areas can be expected a few months after the procedure.


  • Minimally invasive with no damage to other body tissues
  • Minimal risk of bleeding, bruising and discomfort
  • Minimal downtime
  • Less scarring and bruising
  • Promotes skin retraction
  • Fast recovery

The ideal candidates for this procedure are those who are in good health, close to their ideal weight, and have moderate amount of excess fat. It is also important that patients have realistic expectations. To achieve optimal results for VASER liposuction, have the treatment in a reliable AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practice with qualified and experienced plastic surgeons. A healthy lifestyle with proper diet and exercise is essential to maintain the results of your body contouring treatment.
