What Is VASER Liposuction?

At Forman Plastic Surgery, we offer an advanced liposuction method known as VASER liposuction. This is a type of liposuction that uses ultrasound technology to break down fat cells before they are removed from your body. During the procedure, a small probe is inserted into the treatment area, which emits ultrasonic waves that liquefy the fat cells. This makes it easier for Dr. Forman to safely remove the fat through a cannula without damaging any of the surrounding tissue. VASER liposuction is less invasive than traditional liposuction, which means that you will experience less bruising and swelling after the procedure.

What Is the Liposuction Procedure Like?

The first step of your liposuction process will be to sit down for a private consultation with Dr. Forman. During this meeting, he’ll answer any questions you have and discuss the details of the procedure with you. He’ll also ask you about your specific hopes and goals for your body and help you determine if the surgery is the best choice for your situation. If you choose to proceed, Dr. Forman will work with you to create a personalized surgical plan.

The liposuction procedure will be performed on an outpatient basis at our on-site accredited surgery center. To begin, you’ll be administered local anesthesia with IV sedation. Dr. Forman will then make a small incision in the targeted area, through which he will insert the VASER probe to liquefy the excess fat cells. Next, he will insert a narrow cannula through the incision and carefully suction the liquefied fat out of your body. Finally, he’ll close the incision with sutures and bandage up the area.

How Long Is the Recovery Time?

After your liposuction procedure, you’ll likely need to rest for at least one week. During that time, you should take light walks regularly, get plenty of sleep, and maintain a healthy diet. After a week or so, you should be able to return to work and resume your normal routine. However, it’s important to refrain from strenuous physical activity for at least four weeks. You may also need to wear a compression garment for several weeks after the surgery to ensure proper healing and optimal results.
