Staying in the know as you pursue the freshest and most precise techniques for a body contouring procedure will undoubtedly lead you to the discovery of Vaser Liposuction. Beverly Hills board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Charles J. Galanis is on top of this advanced application of ultrasound technology at Galanis Plastic Surgery.
Whether you’re considering VASER Liposuction for stubborn fat removal or simply seeking to enhance your body contours, let’s take a look at the intricacies of this advanced cosmetic procedure.
WHAT IS VASER LIPOSUCTION
VASER is an acronym for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance. VASER Liposuction is an advanced liposuction technique designed to sculpt and redefine your body with precision and finesse.
Known for its ability to provide smoother and more sculpted results compared to traditional liposuction, VASER Lipo is a safe and effective procedure that is commonly used to address areas with stubborn localized fat deposits, offering a minimally invasive body contouring alternative.
The liposuction procedure removes unwanted fat cells while using a tumescent fluid that commonly combines a saline solution(sterile saltwater), a local anesthesia(such as lidocaine), and epinephrine(to constrict blood vessels).
HD Liposuction is often associated with reduced downtime and a quicker recovery compared to some other liposuction techniques.
VASER LIPOSUCTION VS. TRADITIONAL LIPOSUCTION
Unlike traditional liposuction techniques, VASER or hi def lipo is a minimally invasive procedure that employs ultrasound technology towards targeted fat cells.
The ultrasound waves are used to selectively break down and liquefy fat cells, facilitating a gentler and more targeted removal process while enhancing skin tightening.
Here are 4 different ways that Traditional Lipo and VASER Lipo differ:
- TECHNOLOGY: VASER Lipo utilizes ultrasonic energy to break down fatty tissue and emulsify the fat cells for easier removal, whereas traditional liposuction relies on mechanical movement to manually remove excess fat with a cannula to suction out the fatty tissue.
- FAT DISRUPTION: Traditional methods suction out the fat cells without the preliminary breakdown ability that ultrasound assisted liposuction offers, which leaves the surrounding important tissues intact and mostly unaffected
- PRECISION AND SELECTIVITY: While effective, traditional liposuction can cause a high amount of damage to blood vessels and surrounding tissue vs. the more selective and precise removal of unwanted fat through HD liposuction.
- RECOVERY AND DOWNTIME: Vaser HD Liposuction is often associated with reduced downtime and faster recovery times along with less pain post op when compared to traditional methods.
HI DEF VASER LIPOSUCTION TREATMENT AREAS
Another one of the beauties of a Hi Def VASER liposuction procedure is the fact that you can treat multiple areas of body fat during the same surgical procedure. Most VASER Lipo patients take advantage of this option for their plastic surgeons to combine Vaser HD Lipo with other procedures such as a tummy tuck, brazilian butt lift, or even breast augmentation.
Here are a few of the areas that a VASER Liposuction procedure can address excess fat while body sculpting:
- UPPER ARMS
- CHIN AND NECK
- UPPER BACK
- WAISTLINE AND STOMACH
- HIPS AND THIGHS

VASER HIGH DEFINITION LIPOSUCTION PREPARATION
Once you have made the decision to go forward with this VASER Liposuction procedure, you will need to keep in mind that the responsibility of achieving optimal results is not solely in the skilled hands of your plastic surgeon.
Prior to surgery, your medical team will review your medical history, but it is up to you to live a healthy lifestyle maintaining a healthy diet and your ideal body weight.
Proper nutrition in a balanced diet, staying hydrated, avoiding smoking, and maintaining a healthy weight can not be overlooked, and can keep you away from poor skin elasticity.
A couple other factors to keep in mind are arranging transportation to and from surgery, preparing your recovery space, and being prepared to follow all of your plastic surgeons preoperative instructions.
HOW LONG DOES HIGH DEFINITION LIPOSUCTION
High Definition Vaser Liposuction provides long-lasting results, but its longevity will vary based on individual lifestyle habits, genetics, and your overall health.
Once excess fat cells are removed, they do not typically return. However, you will need to stay around your ideal body weight to keep excess fat tissue from creeping in.
The natural aging process coupled with weight gain will obviously play a role with skin elasticity and the presence of loose skin in various body areas as well.
VASER HIGH DEF LIPOSUCTION RECOVERY
The VASER Liposuction healing process should be a little shorter than that of a traditional liposuction procedure. The use of ultrasound energy in removing existing fat cells is a great help for maintaining the surrounding tissue for most patients of this minimally invasive procedure.
Following your body contouring procedure, you will most likely need to wear a compression garment to help maintain the shape your surgeon achieved while body sculpting. These garments can also help to reduce swelling and assist in reducing blood clots.
During the first few weeks following VASER Lipo you should expect some bruising and swelling that will gradually subside. Your surgeon will prescribe or direct you to the proper over-the-counter pain medication to help manage any discomfort that you may experience.

VASER LIPOSUCTION COST
There are many factors that will affect your high definition liposuction cost. The various factors contributing to the overall cost will include the surgeon’s fee, geographical location, facility fee, general anesthesia fee, medical tests, and post-surgery fees.
It is also important to remember that if you are going to combine VASER Lipo with other cosmetic procedures, such as fat transfer, fat grafting, or a tummy tuck, it is going to require more time for your surgeon to perform the procedure.
This will consequently incur more time in the operating room and under general anesthesia, which will affect cost. All of these component variations will be discussed in detail during your personal consultation.

Yes, Dr. Galanis has a gallery where you can view before and after pictures from previous clients who he has performed VASER Liposuction for. You will most likely be able to find a former patient who had a similar amount of body fat as you to make a comparative assessment.

But if you are reading this now, you are already in the right place to set up your initial consultation with an outstanding board certified plastic surgeon with a wealth of experience in VASER Lipo procedures.
IS VASER HIGH DEFINITION LIPOSUCTION BETTER THAN REGULAR LIPO?
Both methods are performed as outpatient surgery. They involve minimal downtime and few complications associated with general anesthesia.
Recovery from VASER Lipo is typically shorter, with potentially reduced bruising. However, the cost of VASER Lipo may be higher due to the advanced technology used during the procedure.
WHO IS THE BEST CANDIDATE FOR VASER HI DEF LIPOSUCTION?
A great candidate for VASER HD Liposuction is an individual in good health with solid physical fitness seeking to enhance specific areas of stubborn fat.
It is essential to recognize that, like any form of liposuction, VASER Lipo is not a rapid solution or substitute for maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
HOW MANY POUNDS CAN HI-DEF LIPOSUCTION REMOVE?
Typically, how much fat is extracted in each session seldom exceeds 4-5 pounds. The overall removal of excess fat cells through VASER Lipo is not substantial enough to result in a significant change in your overall body weight. This procedure is designed to shape your body not lose weight.
