Vaser (vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance) liposuction treatments are an effective and safe minimally invasive alternative to surgical liposuction, still requiring downtime for proper recovery but come with fewer possible complications, a reduced risk for damage to surrounding tissues, and overall will involve a more comfortable experience.

What is a Vaser liposuction?


Vaser liposuction is a cosmetic, minimally invasive type of liposuction that uses ultrasound energy to heat and break apart the fat cells from the muscles to essentially liquify the fat cells, allowing them to be effectively removed from the body. This type of liposuction is incredibly gentle as well as precise, effectively disrupting the connection between the muscles and fatty tissue, without causing any damage to the surrounding and underlying healthy tissues. Not only is fat effectively removed through a Vaser liposuction treatment, but it also provides beautiful skin tightening and body sculpting results for patients.

Vaser liposuction treatments are regularly used throughout the body, most frequently being used to target the following specific areas:

– Abdomen, stomach, and waistline
– Chest
– Upper back
– Hips and thighs
– Buttocks
– Arms
– Chin and neck

Vaser liposuction is so gentle and versatile that it can be safely used for the treatment of sensitive areas (such as the chin or neck) as well as broader areas that tend to hold higher amounts of excess fat.

How much fat do you lose with Vaser lipo?


As with most liposuction procedures, Vaser lipo is not intended to be a significant weight loss treatment but is most effective when used to remove any stubborn areas in which fat deposits are proving difficult to get rid of without medical or cosmetic interventions. The amount of fat that can be removed through one session of Vaser liposuction is dependent on the initial body fat percentage of the patient and the area being treated, with most people being able to have around 4% to 5% of their total body weight removed with one session. Typically, specialists providing a Vaser liposuction treatment can safely remove around 3 liters of fat from a patient during one procedure. If you would like more fat to be removed than what is safe through a single treatment, it is an option to have another session of Vaser liposuction completed after around 5 to 6 weeks to ensure that the body has time to heal entirely before the treatment is repeated.

Who is the good candidate for Vaser lipo?


Since Vaser liposuction is not intended for use as a significant weight loss treatment, ideal candidates will be those who are with 15% to 30% of their ideal weight so there is less of a risk of a significant weight fluctuation. Additionally, most providers and surgeons will only provide Vaser lipo to patients who have a body mass index of less than 32. Good candidates for Vaser lipo will include those who are currently in good health to ensure that they will be able to recover safely from the treatment, including those who follow a healthy diet and partake in regular exercise. It is often recommended for patients who have lost excess weight but are struggling to get rid of the last bit of stubborn fat that tends to hang on in specific areas of the body, also known as exercise-resistant adipose tissue.

How long does Vaser lipo last?


One of the significant benefits of Vaser liposuction is that the fat removal is permanent as once fat cells are destroyed and removed from the body, they will not regenerate. In this treatment, the fat cells are targeted and essentially liquified to be easily removed, allowing for the fat reduction results to be permanent. With this in mind, a significant weight gain can mean that excess fat will develop within the areas that have been previously treated as we tend to carry weight in specific areas, causing those stubborn pockets of fat to likely come back. So, to ensure that the fat removal is permanent, patients must maintain a healthy lifestyle long-term to prevent any significant weight gain and to allow the patient to maintain a stable, healthy weight.
