11 Facts About Stomach VASER Liposuction

By Dr. Charles J. Galanis

11 Facts About Stomach VASER Liposuction

If you’ve got extra fat on your stomach, the VASER liposuction procedure may be the cosmetic procedure for you. While traditional liposuction has its place, many of the nation’s best plastic surgeons turn to VASER technology for its numerous benefits.

Below, we’ve compiled a list of the top VASER liposuction facts you should know about whether you plan on definitely pursuing this procedure or are just starting to consider it for yourself.

What to Know About Stomach VASER Liposuction

1. It uses ultrasound technology to break down fat cells.

VASER is a form of ultrasound assisted liposuction. Although rarely used, the acronym stands for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance. Compared to traditional liposuction, which uses only suction for fat removal, VASER lipo breaks down deep fat by utilizing ultrasound energy.

2. VASER can target stubborn fat deposits on the belly effectively.

When it comes to VASER liposuction, stomach fat is typically where the technology excels the most. Patients come in and explain how they exercise regularly and eat a healthy diet, and still, they can’t drop belly fat. For most of these patients, we recommend VASER lipo.

3. It uniquely allows for more precise body sculpting.

Take a look at some stomach VASER liposuction before and after photos, and you’ll see how precise patient results are. Not only is excess fat gone, but muscles are more defined, sagging skin is often tightened, and stretch marks are significantly reduced.

4. It’s ideal for fit patients who want more definition.

When VASER hi def liposuction is used, surgeons can basically sculpt around the patient’s muscles for increased definition and muscle tone. With the proper diet and lifestyle, this can mean super toned abs and an entirely resculpted midsection.

5. This form of lipo can be performed under local anesthesia.

Some types of liposuction procedures need to be performed with general anesthesia. However, VASER liposuction can be performed with local anesthesia and only light IV sedation. This makes the experience more comfortable for many and lessens the hardship of recovery.

6. The liposuction procedure results in less damage to surrounding tissue.

Because the fat is broken down further before being removed from the body, less overall damage is done to blood vessels and surrounding tissue. This means an easier recovery, less time wearing a compression garment, and potentially seeing your results sooner!

7. Pain and bruising is easier to deal with after VASER lipo.

Overall, VASER liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure. Necessary incisions are extremely small, and it does not cause a lot of trauma to the body, which means that pain and bruising following surgery are not as severe as with some other types of cosmetic surgery.

8. The overall recovery process is shorter with VASER.

Because less trauma is caused to surrounding tissue and because pain and bruising are lessened with this surgery, many patients have a relatively short and uneventful recovery. Moreover, they are able to enjoy their VASER liposuction results sooner.

9. Both men and women can undergo VASER lipo.

Body contouring plastic surgery with procedures like VASER lipo is popular among both men and women. This procedure is suitable for adults of nearly all ages.

10. VASER is combinable with other cosmetic procedures.

You can undergo VASER liposuction along with numerous other procedures. For example, many VASER patients have undergone weight loss surgery and are interested in skin tightening procedures for tighter skin and less excess skin as well. These patients may opt for a combination of VASER and tummy tuck surgery or VASER and a lower or upper body lift, for instance.

11. Fat removed can be used for fat transfer procedures.

Some patients may be interested in getting rid of superficial fat on the stomach while adding volume to other areas such as the breasts or buttocks. While having realistic expectations is important, in many ways, VASER liposuction can change your body composition and figure entirely.

FAQ: VASER Liposuction

How much does VASER liposuction cost?

The cost of plastic surgery is difficult to estimate without your surgeon actually seeing the treatment area and being able to create a customized treatment plan for you. Schedule a consultation appointment with a skilled surgeon to get more information on the cost of VASER liposuction.

Can you get a tummy tuck with VASER Lipo?

Yes. In fact, VASER liposuction treatment is a surgical procedure that is frequently combined with other surgeries, including tummy tuck surgery to reduce loose skin, Brazilian butt lift (BBL) surgery to add volume to the buttocks, and breast surgeries.

Is VASER liposuction painful?

During VASER liposuction, most patients are able to have local anesthesia with IV sedation (as opposed to general anesthesia). While this may be worrying for some, as incisions will need to be made, for most patients, the experience is not bad at all and certainly not painful.

Following surgery, however, you can expect some slight soreness. This should be short-lived and generally more comfortable than with other types of liposuction recovery. Still, pain medication will typically be prescribed to increase your comfort.
