VASER liposuction is a versatile fat-removal procedure that can be performed on its own or in combination with a tummy tuck, mommy makeover, arm lift, thigh lift, breast surgery, or other aesthetic treatment. VASER liposuction, as compared to standard liposuction alone, is a much more powerful procedure with smoother and more pronounced results. The VASER portion of the procedure utilizes an ultrasonic frequency probe to gently liquefy the targeted fat while keeping the surrounding tissue framework in place. VASER ultrasonic frequency technology also provides the added benefit of skin tightening in the treated areas.

By pre-treating the areas of concern prior to liposuction, Dr. Eric Barker can obtain results that avoid complications common with liposuction alone, such as skin rippling and contour irregularities. After treating the targeted areas with the VASER probe, Dr. Barker then extracts the liquified fat through the small, discrete incisions with the use of a liposuction cannula (slender tube). The result from this state-of-the-art procedure is a slimmer, more curvaceous figure. The fat cells can be discarded, or they can be preserved and purified for use in a fat grafting procedure.

What Is VASER Liposuction?

No matter how much you diet and exercise, you may still have stubborn fat that prevents you from feeling confident in your appearance. Dr. Barker at Peak Plastic Surgery Center offers the latest techniques to safely remove fat from the figure, including in-office VASER liposuction. VASER liposuction is a high-definition body contouring treatment that reduces stubborn pockets of fat from multiple areas, creating a more contoured and sculpted physique. During your consultation with Dr. Barker, he will listen to your concerns and design a customized treatment plan that helps you reach your aesthetic goals.

What To Expect From VASER Liposuction

VASER liposuction is a powerful body contouring option for patients who maintain a healthy weight but have stubborn areas of fat that are difficult to eliminate with diet and exercise alone. Patients interested in VASER liposuction should also have good skin laxity, but skin tightening and redraping results can be expected as well. 

The procedure is performed in the office and does not require general anesthesia. Dr. Barker will administer local anesthesia to provide a comfortable setting to complete the surgery. This is the safest way to perform liposuction, and Dr. Barker's patients will attest that this is an overall pleasant experience from beginning to end.

FAQ

What is the difference between VASER and traditional liposuction?

Does liposuction improve cellulite and loose skin?

Will I have scarring after VASER liposuction?

Will my results from VASER liposuction last?

What is the difference between VASER and traditional liposuction?

VASER stands for Vibration Amplification Of Sound Energy at Resonance. This ultrasound technology uses powerful waves to disrupt the bonds between fat cells, allowing Dr. Barker to remove the fat in a more uniform, precise, and gentle manner. Due to the technological benefits of VASER, a patient's recovery following treatment will be more comfortable with much less bruising and swelling. This means you will see your final results much quicker as compared to traditional liposuction.

Does liposuction improve cellulite and loose skin?

Traditional liposuction surgery only addresses excess fat in the body, while VASER liposuction also provides skin tightening due to ultrasound technology. If a significant amount of loose skin is present and VASER liposuction alone will not be sufficient, it is also often performed with skin tightening surgery, such as a tummy tuck, an arm lift, or a thigh lift to give you your best results. Talk to Dr. Barker about all your concerns, including loose skin and cellulite, so your ideal and customized treatment plan can be created during your consultation.

Will I have scarring after VASER liposuction?

Since VASER liposuction is a surgical procedure, small 5 mm incisions will be made. This will cause scars, but Dr. Barker does his best to minimize their appearance. This starts with making thin incisions in the natural folds of your body or in less visible areas. After your surgery, Dr. Barker will explain how to care for scars so they heal properly and fade.

Will my results from VASER liposuction last?

Your results from VASER liposuction do not disappear; they are lasting. However, you can still gain and lose weight after your procedure as you did before. It is important for patients to maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid weight fluctuations. Dr. Barker recommends that you remain within 5-10 pounds of your post-surgical weight.
