Advantages of VASER Lipo

VASER Lipo (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance Liposuction) is a minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure that uses ultrasonic energy to remove fat cells from specific areas of the body selectively. A small probe emitting ultrasound waves is inserted into the treatment area through tiny incisions. The ultrasound energy emulsifies the fat cells, which are then gently suctioned out of the body. VASER Lipo is commonly used to contour and shape the abdomen, thighs, hips, arms, back, and chin and has many advantages over traditional liposuction. Read on to find out more!

More About VASER

After experiencing success with the use of ultrasonic energy to extract autologous collagen from fat tissue, researchers developed an ultrasonic unit and titanium probes to liquify subcutaneous fat. [1] 

Ultrasound are high-frequency sound waves that penetrate through the fatty tissue beneath the skin. Once these sound waves reach the targeted fat cells, they cause the cells to vibrate and shake. These vibrations create tiny bubbles within the fat cells, which eventually grow and merge together, causing the cell walls to break apart. The result is a liquefied form of the fat cells that can be more easily and gently removed from the body. [2]

The beauty of ultrasound energy is that it is a minimally-invasive and precise way to target unwanted fat cells without damaging surrounding tissues such as blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. [3] This means that you can achieve a more sculpted and toned appearance without the risks and recovery time associated with traditional liposuction.

So if you’re looking for a safe, effective, and minimally invasive way to sculpt your body and achieve a smoother, more toned appearance, VASER Lipo may be the perfect solution for you!

The VASER Advantage

There are several advantages to VASER Lipo over traditional liposuction and other body contouring procedures:


Imagine a sculptor creating a masterpiece, delicately chiseling away the excess stone to reveal the hidden beauty. That’s precisely what VASER Lipo does to your body, using ultrasonic energy to selectively target and break up unwanted fat cells while leaving the surrounding tissues, such as blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue, largely intact. This precise sculpting technique allows for customized contouring of specific areas revealing a new, more beautiful you.

Less Downtime

Unlike traditional liposuction, which can be more invasive and require general anesthesia, VASER Lipo is gentler on the body, with less discomfort, bruising, and swelling. Many patients can return to work and everyday activities sooner, thanks to the procedure’s minimally invasive nature. With VASER Lipo, you can achieve the body you’ve always wanted without sacrificing your comfort or lifestyle.

Reduced Risk of Complications

Thanks to its gentler, less invasive nature, VASER Lipo is associated with a reduced risk of complications such as bleeding, infection, and nerve damage. Instead of traumatizing the body, VASER Lipo delicately and selectively targets unwanted fat cells. This precision targeting minimizes trauma and reduces the likelihood of complications. With VASER Lipo, you can enjoy the benefits of body contouring with peace of mind and confidence in your safety.

Improved Skin Tightening

Not only does VASER Lipo sculpt away unwanted fat, but it also helps to rejuvenate and tighten your skin! This is thanks to the ultrasound energy used during the procedure, which can stimulate collagen production. Collagen is a protein that gives skin its elasticity and firmness. As we age, our collagen levels naturally decline, leading to sagging, loose skin. But with VASER Lipo, the ultrasonic energy can help to stimulate new collagen production, resulting in improved skin tightening and a smoother, more toned appearance. [4] So not only will you enjoy a slimmer and more contoured body, but you’ll also look and feel younger, with smoother, firmer skin.


VASER Lipo is a versatile solution to body contouring, offering a wide range of treatment areas to achieve your desired results. Whether you’re looking to sculpt your

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Ankles
  • Hips
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Chin

VASER Lipo can help. In fact, this innovative procedure can be used in almost any area of the body where excess fat is a concern. With VASER Lipo, the possibilities are endless, and your dream body is within reach.

Ideal Candidates

The ideal candidate for VASER Lipo is a man or woman who is close to their ideal body weight and has localized areas of excess fat that have been resistant to diet and exercise. This could be, for women:

  • Excess fat on the thighs, including saddlebags or inner thigh bulges
  • Belly fat that won’t go away, including a pooch or muffin top
  • Flabby upper arms, also known as “bat wings”
  • Bra bulges or back fat
  • Fat pockets on the hips, commonly referred to as “hip dips”
  • Unwanted fat on the lower back or “love handles”
  • Submental fat, commonly known as a double chin
  • Fat accumulation around the knees or ankles

For Men:

  • Excess fat on the chest, often referred to as “man boobs” or gynecomastia
  • Abdominal fat that is resistant to diet and exercise
  • Flank fat or “love handles”
  • Fat on the lower back or “spare tire”
  • Double chin or submental fat
  • Excess fat on the upper arms
  • Fat accumulation on the thighs or buttocks, also known as “saddlebags”

It’s important for candidates to have realistic expectations and understand that VASER Lipo is a body contouring procedure, but that results are different for everyone based on various factors. Candidates should be in good overall health and if they smoke, they should quit prior to the procedure, as smoking can increase the risk of complications and slow down the healing process. It’s also important for candidates to have good skin elasticity, as this can help ensure the best results from the procedure.

  • Following a healthy diet and staying hydrated to promote optimal healing and minimize the risk of complications.
  • Getting regular exercise to maintain cardiovascular health and prepare the body for surgery.
  • Stopping smoking at least four weeks before the procedure, as smoking can increase the risk of complications and impair healing.
  • Arranging for transportation to and from the clinic on the day of the procedure.
  • Wearing comfortable, loose-fitting clothing that is easy to put on and take off.
  • Discussing any concerns or questions with our team and following all pre-operative instructions provided.

The Procedure

The VASER Lipo procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia with sedation, although general anesthesia may be used for larger treatment areas or for patients who prefer to be asleep during the procedure.

During the procedure, Dr Hamlet will insert a small probe through tiny incisions in the skin and into the targeted fat cells. The liquefied fat cells are then removed through a small suction cannula.

The length of the procedure will vary depending on the size and number of areas being treated, but most procedures can be completed within a few hours. Patients can return home the same day.


Recovery after VASER Lipo varies from patient to patient and depends on several factors, including the size and number of areas treated and individual healing capabilities.

Immediately after the procedure, patients may experience mild discomfort, bruising, and swelling in the treated area. This is normal and typically resolves within a few days to a week. Pain medication may be prescribed to manage any discomfort.

To aid in the recovery process, patients are typically advised to wear compression garments in the treated area for several weeks following the procedure. This helps to reduce swelling and promote healing.

Strenuous activity and exercise should be avoided for at least a few weeks following the procedure to allow the body to heal. Most patients are able to return to work and normal activities within a few days to a week, depending on the extent of the treatment.

What are the Results of VASER Lipo?

Patients who undergo VASER Lipo can expect to see a noticeable improvement in their body shape and contour within the first few weeks following the procedure. Results will continue to improve over the next several months as the body heals and adjusts to its new shape.

The ultrasonic energy used in the procedure stimulates collagen production, resulting in improved skin tightening and a more youthful appearance.

With proper diet and exercise, the results of VASER Lipo can be long-lasting and even permanent. Patients can enjoy a slimmer and more toned appearance that enhances their overall confidence and self-esteem!

Corresponding & Complementary Procedures 

VASER Lipo is not recommended for individuals who are significantly overweight or who have loose, sagging skin. In these cases, other procedures such as tummy tuck, post-bariatric body contouring, or arm lift, among others, may be more appropriate.
