What You Need to Know About VASER Liposuction

VASER liposuction At Salzman Cosmetic Surgery and Spa, we provide VASER liposuction, a cutting-edge technique that utilizes ultrasonic vibrations to break down fat cells gently. This advanced method allows Dr. Marc Salzman to perform liposuction with enhanced precision and efficiency. In this post, we will explore the process and advantages of VASER liposuction.


The incisions used for standard liposuction are also the same for VASER liposuction. Within the treatment region, Dr. Salzman will initially administer an injection of a tumescent solution. Following this, a small incision will be made to make room for the device that generates VASER sound waves. These sound waves are responsible for softening and liquefying the fat cells that are located in the treatment area.

In the final step of the liposuction procedure, Dr. Salzman makes use of a specialized tube called a cannula to carefully extract the liquid fat from the body tissues.


The primary benefit of VASER liposuction is to reduce the time needed to remove the fat, which also reduces the overall trauma of the procedure. VASER thus reduces skin irritation, bruising, and blood loss from liposuction, resulting in a shorter recovery period. The greater precision of VASER is also beneficial for patients who want to lose highly localized fat, which is common after sudden weight loss. In addition, VASER allows for a more uniform extraction of fat, resulting in smoother skin.


Liposuction isn’t a treatment for weight loss, so the best candidates for VASER liposuction are already close to or at their target weight. Patients should have an active, healthy lifestyle before the surgery to ensure they don’t regain the fat removed during liposuction. Some pre-existing conditions like diabetes, hypertension, and pulmonary issues can increase the risk of complications or even disqualify a patient from surgery. These and other pre-existing conditions also affect the choice of anesthesia for the surgery.
