VASER 2.4 Liposuction

 Fat Removal and Fat Transfer

We can help you get rid of stubborn body fat with minimally invasive VASER 2.4 Liposuction. This advanced internal ultrasound technology allows more efficient fat removal and body sculpting. We’re able to immediately transfer harvested fat to areas such as the lips, face and muscles where enhanced definition is desired.

Although Vaser 2.4 Liposuction requires incisions, the increased efficiency of the device and less traumatic technique make it possible to offer the procedure in our office under oral sedation and local anesthesia, or in Dr. Samuels’ in-suite operating room under IV sedation or light general anesthesia without compromising the aesthetic outcome. Vaser 2.4 Liposuction is frequently combined with BodyTite or Renuvion for areas where skin may be more lax and additional tightening is desired but the patient does not desire a body lift.

The patient benefits are many:

  • Minimally invasive office procedure
  • Minimal pain, bruising and swelling
  • Enhanced aesthetic results
  • Selective removal of fat
  • Effective skin tightening
  • Versatile procedure for both small-scale and large-volume sculpting

Ultrasonic Liposuction

Choose Liposelection… Not Liposuction

Dr. Samuels is pleased to offer the latest technique in body contouring to anyone considering liposuction or a tummy tuck with liposuction. Liposelection by Vaser® precisely and efficiently removes unwanted fat by using the newest ultrasound technology to reshape the body. It liquefies and removes fat from the body while leaving important tissues intact. Patients report low to minimal pain, swelling and bruising as well as quicker recovery than traditional liposuction methods.

Vaser Smooth For Cellulite

In addition to being a smarter and more efficient method of performing liposuction, the Vaser 2.4 technology adds software called VASER SMOOTH, which allows Dr. Samuels a very effective tool to use to divide those pesky cellulite septal bands in fat that tether and dimple skin resulting in the appearance of cellulite. Dr. Samuels uses a special cannula and Vaser energy to divide the septal bands, release the skin and then redistribute the surrounding fat. This is perhaps the most effective and permanent option in the treatment of cellulite.

Frequently Asked Questions

The best candidates for liposuction are patients near their goal weight who have relatively tight skin in the area of consideration. If skin is prohibitively loose or has stretch marks, a lift procedure may be recommended instead of or in addition to liposuction. The procedure is performed as an outpatient under local anesthesia with sedation or light general anesthesia. Dr. Samuels performs all procedures in her fully accredited surgical suite with private entrance. 

After surgery, you are fitted with a compression garment to wear for 10-14 days; recovery time is 3-4 days. Post-procedure massage techniques may hasten your recovery time. Final results are visible at 2-3 months.

Liposuction is about shaping the body. It’s not meant for individuals with notable weight issues. The results are best when you are near your ideal weight. Diet and exercise should be emphasized before proceeding with liposuction. These conditions may indicate that liposuction is right for you.

  • You have areas of fat deposits that are out of proportion with the rest of your body which have not responded to persistent diet and exercise
  • You don’t have a lot of excess skin and the area is firm
  • You’d like more definition or toning in certain areas of your body, a sleeker contour or a more athletic appearance

Dr. Samuels will determine if you are healthy enough to undergo surgery and if liposuction will be performed in conjunction with other procedures to contour the skin. Depending on skin laxity in the treated area, it may be possible to tighten it without an excisional surgical lift procedure by adding either BodyTite, FaceTite or Renuvion to your Vaser liposuction procedure in the same session.

Liposuction is often used to remove excess fat cells from many areas of the body including lower legs, thighs, hips, waist, back, chest, neck and chin.

We frequently combine Vaser Liposuction with Renuvion, FACETITE or BodyTite to tighten skin during the surgery. We may use Vaser Smooth technology to treat cellulite.

Post-operatively, Vaser Shape or Exilis skin tightening treatments can hasten the recovery time of liposuction as well as add nonsurgical skin tightening to improve the results. EMSCULPT NEO can add muscle definition and toning to further sculpt the result. All three of these therapies may be used to fine-tune and maintain liposuction results or even come close to a tummy tuck result.

Although ultrasonic liposuction by Vaser is the most gentle and efficient way to perform state-of-the-art liposuction with an enhanced skin result, it does not by itself treat cellulite, which is also caused by septal bands under the skin that tether the skin to the muscle causing the dimpling of cellulite.
