What is VASERlipo®?

VASERlipo® is unique because it allows Dr. Tseng to be gentle and extremely precise when removing fat. It disrupts the connection between your fatty tissue and the muscles underneath without hurting your underlying healthy tissue, giving VASERlipo® an excellent reputation for body sculpting and contouring.

How does VASERlipo® work?

Precise, ultrasound-assisted liposuction lets you redefine yourself. VASERlipo® offers minimally invasive body contouring as an alternative to the harsh techniques of traditional lipo. Yet it is still powerful enough to remove large amounts of fat while being gentle enough to treat more delicate sites.

Featuring acoustic streaming, VASERlipo® fills the treatment site with a medicated solution. The fat cells are treated with ultrasound energy before being removed with gentle suction. This ensures surrounding tissues are left intact for smoother contours, less pain, and reduced recovery time.

VASERlipo® is considered the new standard in creating high-definition and precision body etching in men and women. It’s the preferred technology for male gynecomastia breast reduction and fat harvesting during Brazilian Butt Lift surgery.

    VASERlipo® benefits

    VASERlipo® is advancing the art of liposuction as the latest in subcutaneous fat removal technology. The system perfectly blends surgical finesse, precision, and sophistication to produce the most dynamic and high-definition body contouring results. While it’s not a weight loss option, you can achieve a slimmer, more sculpted figure, putting the finishing touches on your journey and refining your results.

    One of the most significant benefits is its versatility. VASERlipo® can remove excess fat deposits from many body sites, such as:

    • Jowls
    • Chin
    • Neck
    • Abs
    • Hips
    • Love handles
    • Chest
    • Arms
    • Back
    • Buttocks
    • Thighs
    • Knees
    • Calves
    • Ankles

    Some of the other impressive VASERlipo® benefits include the following:

    • Visible results in one week that progressively improve for four to six months
    • Minimally invasive
    • Precise body contouring
    • Shape and sculpt multiple body areas in a single procedure
    • Less pain, swelling, and downtime compared to traditional liposuction methods
    • Reduced post-op discomfort
    • Enhanced skin retraction for reduced risk of sagging skin associated with traditional lipo

    How does VASERlipo® compare to BodyTite and Renuvion?

    BodyTite uses radio-frequency assisted lipolysis (RFAL) to provide three-dimensional body sculpting in the most troublesome areas of the body. Instead of extracting fat, BodyTite melts the fat tissue while stimulating your skin to tighten and firm by promoting the development of natural collagen and elastin development.

    Renuvion combines helium gas and radiofrequency energy to generate cold helium plasma. This is used within the skin, causing it to contract naturally and stimulating collagen production for significantly tighter and firmer skin. Renuvion is an excellent alternative to surgery for patients with minimal to moderate skin laxity and who want to firm their skin.

    VASERlipo®, BodyTite, and Renuvion accomplish the same goal of body contouring and sculpting. However, VASERlipo® uses ultrasound to semi-liquify fatty tissue for easier liposuction removal, while BodyTite and Renuvion use radiofrequency energy to tighten skin. VASERlipo® is especially effective when paired with either skin-tightening method for comprehensive body renewal.

    VASERlipo® procedure and recovery

    The procedure takes one to three hours and is performed under general or local anesthesia with IV sedation. During VASERlipo®, Dr. Tseng creates small incisions at the target zones through which ultrasound probes are inserted. These probes break up the fatty tissue while a cannula vacuums it and most of the fluid through the same port. The process can be expedited by pairing VASERlipo® with Renuvion or BodyTite.

    While some of the fluid will be left in your body to numb post-procedural pain, it will be absorbed over the following days. For the first week or so during your recovery:

    • You may need to wear a compression garment to help minimize swelling and protect your new, improved contours
    • Rest and avoid strenuous activities
    • Attend regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Tseng to ensure your healing remains on track

    Thanks to Dr. Tseng’s technologically advanced approach, recovery times are expedited for Kirkland and Auburn VASERlipo® patients. He will ensure you go home with prescription pain medications and a thorough aftercare plan for managing your recovery. 

    After the procedure, your body may be bruised and swollen in the treated areas. While VASERlipo® is safe and gentle, you may experience the following side effects:

    • Temporary swelling, bruising, soreness, and numbness
    • Bleeding
    • Skin contour irregularities
    • Anesthesia side effects such as nausea
    • Pain and aching at the treatment site
    • Eventual scarring

    What results can I expect from VASERlipo®?

    It is important to note that you probably won’t be able to see results right away because your body needs time to heal. After three to six months, you’ll see the results more clearly as your body settles into its modified form.

    Results from VASERlipo® liposuction can be permanent, but maintaining your stunning results is up to you. You’ll need to maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine so that your body doesn’t regain the fat deposits that Dr. Tseng removed. Additionally, there’s no way to eliminate all visible signs of aging, meaning weight fluctuations, inflammation, and gravity can change your results over time.
