Vaser LiposuctionCore Plastic Surgery is announces the addition of the latest technology from Sound Surgical Company, Inc. which produces the ultrasonic assisted lipoplasty method for body contouring. Ultrasonic assisted lipoplasty, invented in Italy in the early 1990’s,did not become popular in the United States until approximately ten years ago.

Dr. Core is proud to have been one of the first plastic surgeons in the United States to have adapted Vaser Liposuction and become an expert with ultrasonic assisted lipoplasty. Vaser, an acronym for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance, is a minimally-invasive liposuction tool delivering ultrasound energy in pulses through a probe specially-designed to prevent overexposure. Vaser allows layers of fat around muscle groups to be targeted, liquified, and extracted. Because of its precision, it is also known as “LipoSelection.” A single treatment generally takes anywhere from 1 hour to several hours depending on the extent your needs.

Advantages of Vaser Liposuction

Compared to traditional liposuction procedures such as suctions and lasers, Vaser Liposuction’s ultrasonic technology discriminates solely against fat cells. This allows for a reduction in contour deformities and decreases the necessity of secondary procedures (Vaser Liposuction is also the liposuction method of choice for correcting deformities resulting from traditional methods). With Vaser Liposuction, often fewer procedures are needed, and Dr. Core is able to perform them in-office under local sedation. Vaser Liposuction also facilitates high-quality extractions of fat for transfer to other locations of the body.

Vaser Liposuction Results

Results from your Vaser Liposuction can be apparent immediately and will improve as the body begins to heal. Having consulted with Dr. Core prior to your surgery, you will have a good idea of what your outcome will be based on your goals for the procedure.

Recovery from Vaser Liposuction

After the procedure, patients are generally recommended to take 12 hours to rest and to avoid strenuous activity like exercise for 2-3 weeks. Dr. Core will consult with you on an individual basis to determine the best plan for your recovery.

Risks of Vaser Liposuction

While Vaser Liposuction is relatively safe, it is still a surgical procedure, and, therefore carries the risks associated with all plastic surgery procedures, such as risks of bleed, bruising, swelling, infection, and negative reaction to the anesthetic.
