Understanding VASER Liposuction
VASER liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure using ultrasound-guided techniques to eliminate targeted areas of fat.
Unlike traditional liposuction methods, VASER utilizes precisely-focused ultrasound waves to liquefy fat cells before gentle suction removes them. This minimizes trauma to surrounding tissues, reducing pain and recovery time.
Some key benefits of VASER liposuction include more defined results, less bruising and swelling, and faster healing. We find that our patients that are treated with VASER liposuction tend to have an even more rapid, more comfortable recovery than our patients that do not use this modality to enhance their liposuction procedure.
The ultrasound waves break up fatty deposits efficiently and smoothly, shaping and contouring the body in a procedure that uses only tiny access ports..
Growing demand for VASER techniques can be seen in the many offerings now provided by liposuction clinics and specialists nationwide. Advanced fat removal through VASER liposuction is an increasingly popular choice for those seeking significant body improvements.

Types of Liposuction
Dr. Smith provides several advanced body contouring techniques at his NYC liposuction clinic to suit varied goals and body types. One of his signature services is VASER Liposuction, using the precision ultrasound method described earlier. Other related technologies include:
Most modern liposuction procedures incorporate this technique that delivers effective anesthesia for maximum comfort during large-volume fat removal. A combination of numbing medication (lidocaine) and a medication to shrink blood vessels (epinephrine) is used to achieve safe, reproducible results with minimal blood loss and bruising.
Power Assisted Liposuction
In power assisted liposuction (PAL), the cannula used to remove fat cells gently reciprocates to assist to minimize the physical effort expended by the surgeon. The surgeon can then better define the results being achieved.
BodyTite Skin Tightening
BodyTite uses bipolar radiofrequency energy to heat the skin, triggering collagen and elastin formation. This treatment tightens the skin, effectively “shrink-wrapping” the liposuction result.
Each service is tailored to the individual, taking into account the treatment area, fat quality and volume, skin elasticity, and other factors. During your consultation, Dr. Smith will personally design a customized treatment plan to help you achieve an ideal,natural-looking liposuction result. More than one of the techniques described here may be recommended based on your case.
For those considering a procedure, understanding the liposuction process is key to setting proper expectations. Dr. Smith recommends beginning with a consultation to review medical history, assess problem areas, and discuss which method may yield the best liposuction results.
During this meeting, patients can have their questions addressed regarding everything from liposuction cost, anticipated liposuction recovery time, and follow-up care. Once the optimal plan is agreed upon, we will work with you to schedule your procedure.
The procedure involves three main steps:
First, numbing tumescent solution is administered to the treatment area. Then, the VASER handpiece precisely delivers ultrasound energy, gently dissolving fat cells.
Finally, the liquefied fat is suctioned away. On average, the process takes one to three hours depending on complexity and treatment area.
Early liposuction results are generally visible at one month while final results tend to come in at approximately three months. Recovery typically only involves light discomfort managed by mild pain medications. Most patients feel ready to resume light exercise within days of their procedure.
VASER Lipo Considerations
Important factors to consider include being at a stable weight and maintaining a relatively healthy lifestyle, as the results from VASER liposuction are permanent with a well-balanced lifestyle. Those with certain medical conditions affecting healing may not be suitable candidates.
During your initial consultation, Dr. Smith will review your health history and assess problem areas to determine if you’re a good fit. He will personally devise a customized treatment plan to address your individual goals and anatomy.
VASER Liposuction Recovery
Following VASER liposuction, expect mild soreness managed easily with light pain medications as needed. Dr. Smith will provide specific aftercare guidelines on compression garment wear, resuming activity, and routine incision care.
Most patients feel ready to return to desk work within 2-3 days. Light exercise may start around 5 days, with full workouts resuming after 2 weeks. Bruising and swelling typically peak 2-3 days post-op before subsiding over 1-2 weeks.
Final results take approximately three months to fully mature as the body undergoes natural skin contraction. However, patients often see noticeable differences within a few weeks. With Dr. Smith’s expert guidance and commitment to your comfort and safety, recovery is streamlined for a fast return to normal life.
