Liposuction is a great ways to contour your midsection, arms, back and legs for the better silhouette you desire. This procedure can help you achieve more balanced body proportions by smoothing areas with stubborn excess fat.

Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures in the U.S. with around 500,000 procedures performed each year. Many patients are looking for safer, less painful alternatives to traditional liposuction.

VASER® Lipo, or LipoSelection®, is an advanced body contouring procedure that uses gentle ultrasonic energy to selectively target unwanted fat, while preserving other important tissue structures such as blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue.

We strongly believe that liposuction should not be a substitute for weight loss. This is because it will not be successful if a patient has a weight problem. Liposuction removes fat, but it does not change the body’s metabolism or a patient’s habits. If weight is a problem before liposuction, it will be a problem after as well. When weight is a problem, we refer patients to TOTAL T CLINIC®, our anti-aging and weight loss clinic, which can be extremely effective in helping patients achieve long term weight loss.

Liposuction is one of our most popular procedures for instantly slimming the waistline and other parts of the body that tend to have pockets of fat that are genetic or resistant to exercise. This is a very straightforward procedure, and easy for patients to understand. However, it must be performed carefully and conservatively by an experienced surgeon to achieve optimal results.

When liposuction was first developed in the mid 80s, it involved one step—removing the fat. This was effective but resulted in a significant amount of blood loss. Therefore, the amount of fat that could be safely removed without a blood transfusion was about 2 liters, or 2 quarts.

In the mid 90s, “tumescent” liposuction was developed. This added an important step, flooding the fatty tissue with saline fluid combined with local anesthesia and adrenaline, which keeps blood loss to a minimum—less that one percent of the fluid removed. Compared to early liposuction, tumescent liposuction removes essentially pure fat, allowing about 5 liters to be removed safely.

In more recent years, a third step has been added to the procedure, to help melt fat and shrink skin. This is accomplished with technology such as ultrasound and laser. VASER® is such a technique. These are the three steps of VASER® liposuction:

  1. Tumescence: infiltrate tissue with fluid
  2. VASER®: selectively melt fat and shrink skin with internal ultrasound device
  3. Suction melted fat
