About VASER Liposuction

Changes to your metabolism can result in subcutaneous fat that does not respond to diet or exercise. Excess fat is a common issue that affects millions of Americans, and if you are struggling with it, you are not alone. In 2022, surgeons performed over 325,000 liposuction treatments to help patients eliminate excess fat, making it one of the top five most popular procedures that year. (1) If stubborn fat persists no matter how much you diet or exercise, we can eliminate it with a simple VASER liposuction procedure. It can treat the following areas of the body:

  • Abdomen
  • Flanks
  • Upper Arms
  • Thighs
  • Chin
  • Calves
  • Chest
  • Back

How is VASER Liposuction Different?

VASER liposuction utilizes advanced ultrasound technology to specifically target localized fat deposits, leaving surrounding tissues untouched. This allows for highly precise contouring and sculpting of the treated area. Unlike traditional liposuction, which requires larger incisions and manual force for fat removal, VASER liposuction involves small incisions and gentle suction to achieve the desired results. This results in less trauma, reduced scarring, and a quicker recovery period.

VASER Liposuction Benefits

The benefits of VASER liposuction include the following:

  • Strategic fat removal
  • Athletic contour
  • Enhanced muscle definition
  • More defined, chiseled look
  • Long-lasting results
  • Increased self-esteem
  • Customizable treatment
  • Minimally-invasive

We can also combine this customizable procedure with other treatments such as a mommy makeover to help you achieve a more youthful physique and maintain an appearance you feel good about.

Benefits of VASER in Repeat Liposuction Procedures

For patients who had a previous liposuction procedure, VASER is one of the most efficient treatments for removing excess fat. VASER loosens the fat cells which allows for more fat removal than other types of liposuction. It is also less traumatic than traditional liposuction because it preserves the surrounding tissue, resulting in a faster recovery time. If you experienced weight changes after your last procedure, we can help you restore your figure by removing more fat with VASER than with traditional liposuction. Contact our office to learn more about how our body contouring procedures can help you meet your goals.

Candidates for VASER Liposuction

Candidates for VASER liposuction have localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. If you are interested in a body contouring procedure that will remove excess fat and sculpt your body for a more athletic look, you are likely a good candidate. The best candidates are healthy nonsmokers who are prepared to lead a healthy lifestyle to maintain a stable weight. However, liposuction is a body contouring treatment, and should not be considered a weight loss solution. It is also important to have realistic expectations and a positive attitude toward cosmetic surgery procedures.

Personal Consultation

VASER Liposuction Miracle Mile Cosmetic Center

At Miracle Mile Cosmetic Center, we take a holistic approach to body contouring treatments and will discuss your body goals during your consultation to create the most effective treatment plan for your needs. If you have excess skin, we may recommend corresponding treatments such as a tummy tuck or our J-Plasma® skin tightening procedure to help you achieve your desired look. We can also add VASER liposuction to other procedures such as an arm lift if you wish to sculpt other areas of your body.


Proper preparation is crucial to ensure a successful VASER liposuction procedure and optimize your recovery. Before your scheduled surgery, you will receive detailed instructions from our team. These instructions may include:

  • Discontinuing the use of certain medications and supplements that can increase the risk of bleeding.
  • Quitting smoking for a specified period before and after the procedure, as it can impair healing and lead to complications.
  • Arranging for transportation to and from the surgical facility on the day of the procedure.
  • Obtaining any necessary prescriptions ahead of time to have them readily available after the surgery.
  • Scheduling time off from work or other obligations to allow for sufficient rest and recovery.

VASER Liposuction Procedure

We will place you under anesthesia before your procedure. Once you are ready, your surgeon will make small incisions to insert the VASER probe. A small probe emitting ultrasonic energy is introduced through these incisions. This energy selectively targets and breaks down the fat cells while preserving surrounding tissues such as blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. (2) After the fat cells have been emulsified by the ultrasound energy, a gentle suction device or cannula is used to remove the liquified fat from the body. The surgeon pays careful attention to achieving the desired contour and ensuring smooth results. The procedure can take several hours depending on the size of the treatment area and the amount of excess fat you wish to remove.


Your recovery from VASER liposuction will depend on the size of the treatment area and the amount of excess fat removed. Following the procedure, we will apply dressings or pressure garments to the treated areas to promote healing, minimize swelling, and help sculpt the area. You may experience some mild discomfort or soreness, which can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication or medication prescribed by your surgeon. For abdominal liposuction, most patients are able to return to work after 1-2 weeks. If you lead a highly active lifestyle, you will also need to be prepared to adjust your routine for several weeks to give your body time to heal.

VASER Liposuction Results

After a VASER liposuction procedure, you can enjoy effective fat reduction and long-lasting results. You will love the way your clothes fit and the increased mobility that comes along with removing excess fat. You can easily maintain your results with diet and exercise. Following your recovery instructions closely will be important for achieving the best results from your procedure.

Corresponding Treatments

J Plasma® Skin Tightening

If you have mild to moderate loose skin, our J-Plasma® treatments use helium plasma to tighten your skin for a more youthful appearance. After weight change, it is common to experience loose skin and stretch marks. We can combine VASER liposuction with J Plasma® to remove excess fat and eliminate sagging skin for a smoother, more youthful look. Minimally invasive skin tightening treatments are one of the best ways to enhance your figure because they do not require extensive recovery or downtime.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is a body contouring procedure that enhances the shape of your abdomen for a smoother, more athletic physique. If you have droopy skin that was stretched from excess fat, or a pooch after pregnancy, we can remove it by making a discrete horizontal incision along your bikini line. When patients combine a Tummy Tuck with VASER, the combined procedure can:

  • Remove excess fat and skin
  • Enhance core strength
  • Improve posture
  • Reduce C-section scars
  • Eliminate abdominal stretch marks
  • Improve the way your clothing fits

We can perform a tummy tuck in addition to VASER liposuction to help you achieve a smoother body if you have a large amount of droopy skin. This is an extremely common issue after weight loss. (3) Combining VASER liposuction with a tummy tuck can help you eliminate the excess fat as well as sculpt your midsection for a more athletic look. We offer a tummy tuck that is more extensive and is specifically designed for weight loss patients to help you restore your body. After receiving a tummy tuck after massive weight loss, you can enjoy the body you worked so hard for because we can enhance your figure for a more athletic look.

Does VASER liposuction help with loose skin?

VASER liposuction targets and removes excess fat deposits. While it can lead to mild skin tightening due to the ultrasound energy used, it is not specifically designed to address significant loose skin. For excess abdominal skin, your surgeon may recommend a tummy tuck.

Is VASER liposuction a weight loss procedure?

No, VASER liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It is designed to contour and sculpt the body by removing localized fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. Candidates for VASER liposuction should be near their target weight or within a stable weight range before undergoing the procedure.

How long does it take to see results after VASER liposuction?

Initially, there may be some swelling and bruising in the treated areas, which can obscure the immediate results. However, as the swelling subsides over the weeks and months following the procedure, you will begin to notice improvements in your body contours. Most patients see significant results within three to six months after VASER liposuction.

Can VASER liposuction be combined with other procedures?

Yes, VASER liposuction can be combined with other procedures such as breast augmentation, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), or facial rejuvenation surgeries like facelifts or neck lifts. Combining procedures can provide comprehensive results and efficient use of the surgical process.
