Vaser Liposuction FAQs

What is the difference between VASER and traditional liposuction?
VASER is an acronym for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance. This ultrasound technology uses powerful waves to disrupt the bonds between fat cells allowing the surgeon to remove the fat in a more uniform and gentle manner.  By doing this, VASER liposuction provides a more powerful method to obtain more drastic body contouring results through liposuction. In all, VASER liposuction offers the surgeon more precision and the ability to be gentler when performing the procedure. Due to the technological benefits of VASER, a patient's recovery following treatment will be more comfortably and typically will experience much less bruising and swelling. 

Does liposuction improve cellulite and loose skin?
Traditional liposuction surgery only addresses excess fat in the body, while VASER liposuction also provides some skin tightening due to the ultrasound technology. If a significant amount of loose skin is present and VASER liposuction alone will not be sufficient, it is also often performed with skin tightening surgery, such as a tummy tuck, arm lift, or thighplasty, to give you your best results. There are many nonsurgical and minimally invasive treatment options to correct cellulite, VASER liposuction may be a good option for some, but Dr. Barker will go over this in detail during your consultation.
