Vaser Lipo

Offered at our Convenient Location in Birmingham, Alabama

Grady Core, M.D., F.A.C.S., a board-certified plastic surgeon at Core Plastic Surgery, uses Vaser Lipo® on people living in Birmingham and Mountain Brook to reduce excess fat in trouble spots that seem resistant to any amount of diet and exercise.

What Is Vaser Lipo?

Vaser Lipo (vaser liposuction) is a minimally invasive body sculpting procedure that uses ultrasound waves to reduce fat and smooth the skin's surface without damaging the surrounding healthy tissue. 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, liquefied, and extracted. Because of its precision, it is also known as "LipoSelection". A single treatment generally takes anywhere from one hour to several hours depending on the extent of your needs.

Who Is A Good Candidate For Vaser Lipo (Vaser Liposuction)?

Candidates for Vaser Lipo treatments are typically within about 30 percent of their ideal body weight and have firm skin with some elasticity. It is also important that those considering Vaser Lipo have realistic expectations about the results of the surgery.

How Do I Prepare For Vaser Lipo?

Preparation for Vaser Lipo starts with your consultation during which time Dr. Core evaluates the area of your body on which the procedure will be performed. Once he confirms Vaser Lipo is the best option for you, we go over the procedure and provide you with detailed pre-operative instructions.

What Is Involved With My Vaser Lipo Procedure?

Vaser Lipo uses a handheld device that sends ultrasound waves to your targeted area of fat. The waves break up fatty tissue leaving surrounding tissues largely untouched. By using VASER's ultrasound technology, Dr. Core removes fat as gently as possible, as well as sculpts the treatment area into a more toned, attractive contour. The treatment is performed under a local or general anesthesia and takes about one hour to perform.

Recovery From Vaser Liposuction

After the procedure, our Birmingham Vaser Liposuction patients are generally recommended to take 12 hours to rest and to avoid strenuous activity, such as exercise for two to three weeks. Dr. Core will consult with you on an individual basis to determine the best plan for your recovery.

What To Expect After Vaser Lipo

You should rest for the remainder of the day following your Vaser Lipo treatment. Additionally, you may experience only minimal bruising and swelling. Finally, any strenuous activities should be avoided for about three weeks following the treatment. Swelling will continue to improve over the weeks following your VASER Liposuction. You will receive personalized recovery instructions to guarantee you enjoy your best recovery and procedure outcomes.

Vaser Liposuction Results

After Vaser liposuction Birmingham patients can expect the results to be apparent immediately and will improve as their body begins to heal. After consulting with Dr. Core prior to surgery, you will have a good idea of what your outcome will be based on your goals for the procedure.
