VASER Ultrasound Body Sculpting

Some areas of the body are predisposed to store fat and fail to respond to even rigorous diet and exercise. If you are worried about such stubborn fat, VASER ultrasound body sculpting at bodySCULPT® could provide the answer. VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. This advanced liposuction procedure utilizes ultrasound energy to effectively separate fat from the connective tissues without damaging the surrounding structure.

Dr. Spero Theodorou and Dr. Christopher T. Chia, the plastic surgeons at our AAAASF-accredited practice in Manhattan, New York City, have vast expertise in body contouring using advanced technologies. They perform more than 1000 procedures a year.

VASER Liposuction for a Refined Shape

The VASER Lipo system, a feasible alternative to traditional liposuction, uses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology which is designed to gently reshape the body. Almost all areas can be treated – the abdomen, hips, waists, thighs, backs, buttocks, arms, male chests, female breasts, knees, calves, including delicate areas such as the chin and face.

This procedure is unique because of its ability to recognize targeted fat from other important tissues such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. Ultrasonic energy breaks up the fat cells while preserving these other important tissues, enabling smooth results, rapid healing, and enhanced skin retraction.

The Procedure

The area to be treated is first injected with a tumescent fluid. The solution expands the tissue layer and shrinks the blood vessels, minimizing blood loss and bruising. The small VASER probe that emits ultrasound energy is inserted into the site. The high-energy waves break apart and liquefy the fatty tissue. The liquefied fat is gently removed using a special suction device, while leaving the surrounding tissues intact. Any fluid that remains after the procedure will be reabsorbed and eliminated by the body.

Patient Benefits

  • Results in a slimmer, smooth, natural looking shape
  • Can be done under local anesthesia
  • Multiple areas can be treated at one time
  • Permanently removes unwanted fat
  • Little trauma to the surrounding area enhances healing
  • Superior skin tightening effects
  • Minimal bruising and pain

The time for recovery would depend on the extensiveness of the procedure such as the amount of fat removed and the number of areas treated.
