Tone Your Figure with Vaser® Liposuction
Vaser® liposuction can be an ideal way to sculpt your curves, improve muscle definition, and permanently remove stubborn fat deposits. The treatment uses ultrasound waves to break apart unwanted pockets of fat. Then Dr. Richard Bendor-Samuel or Dr. Louis Boileau can eliminate the fat cells with less impact to your surrounding tissues. Vaser® liposuction can address virtually any area of your body. However, it is typically most successful on areas with denser fat. We will evaluate your overall health and cosmetic goals to determine if the treatment is right for you.

What Is Vaser® Liposuction?
Before your Vaser® procedure, your surgeon will numb the treatment area with local anesthetic, and administer a special saline solution. The procedure may be completed under a general anesthetic or simply a local anesthetic depending on the area that is being treated. The injection will cause the nearby blood vessels to constrict, resulting in minimal bleeding and discomfort.
Liposuction can give you a sleeker figure that reflects your healthy weight and active lifestyle. While all types of liposuction can achieve these results, Vaser® offers several unique advantages.
Next, we will create tiny incisions. Through the openings, we will insert an ultrasonic probe. The high power sound waves will emulsify fat cells, and they will separate from the surrounding tissues. We can then remove the fat with a cannula. When the final results have been achieved, we will close the incisions with sutures.
However, they are sometimes so small that no stitches are required. Following your procedure, gentle massage and other techniques can promote faster healing. The proper treatment regimen can also help your skin retract and adhere to the slimmer contours of your body.
Candidates for Vaser® Liposuction
Vaser® liposuction is typically most effective in treating areas with dense layers of fat. The treatment may be an appropriate option if you want to address any of these areas:
- Lower back, or love handles
- Male or female breasts
- Outer thighs
Remember, no form of liposuction, including Vaser®, is designed to be a weight loss procedure. Rather, the treatment is intended to reduce pockets of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. To qualify for Vaser® liposuction, you should be at a healthy weight.
You should also be committed to maintaining your results through a balanced diet and regular exercise. If you plan to lose any weight or if you have an underlying health condition, it is recommended that you not undergo liposuction.
What are the Benefits?
Liposuction can give you a sleeker figure that reflects your healthy weight and active lifestyle. While all types of liposuction can achieve these results, Vaser® offers several unique advantages. Since we will emulsify fat cells before removal, the treatment will affect less of the nearby tissues and nerves.
Vaser® does not involve thermal energy, which can cause discomfort and tissue damage. In addition, the treatment is accurate. With the ultrasound energy, we can create symmetrical curves, free from unsightly irregularities.
