Cosmetic Surgeries for the Body – Enhanced Beauty from the Neck Down

Are you looking to enhance your appearance from the neck down? With one or more cosmetic procedures, you could achieve your beauty goals.

Choosing to have cosmetic surgery can be a difficult decision to make. But with the right procedure, and by choosing the best cosmetic surgeon, you can effectively tighten and improve your skin’s appearance, boost your bust, add volume to your buttocks, and so much more.

Cosmetic surgery is different from plastic surgery. Plastic surgery refers to procedures aimed at correcting birth defects and trauma from accidents, to give a couple of examples. A plastic surgeon may also reconstruct the breasts following a mastectomy due to a breast cancer diagnosis. This type of surgery is also referred to as reconstructive surgery.

Surgeons perform cosmetic surgery procedures purely for aesthetic reasons. You may have lopsided breasts or too much sag along your abdomen. Cosmetic procedures can improve these irregularities, leading to better self-esteem.

When it comes to cosmetic surgeries for the body, there are quite a few to mention. Here are the most popular procedures people like you are choosing every day as they visit their cosmetic surgeons in the hopes of achieving aesthetic enhancement.

Popular Body Cosmetic Surgeries for a Self-Esteem Boost


Do you struggle in the gym with the expectation of losing those last five pounds? If only you could lose those stubborn pockets of fat on your abdomen, along your lower back, and elsewhere on your body, you’d be happy with your results, right?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to spot-reduce fat deposits. Dieting and exercise only do so much. If those pockets of fatty tissue remain, liposuction may be the best way to slim down and realign your bodily contours.

Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure to improve the shape of the body by removing those stubborn pockets of fat. The procedure is not intended to help you lose weight, however. Rather, it aims to etch your body into a more attractive form.

During liposuction, localized fat deposits are removed from beneath the skin using a vacuum-powered cannula, which is a thin, pen-shaped instrument. The fat is first broken up using a saline solution mixed with an anesthetic to ensure your comfort during the procedure.

Liposuction can be performed on the stomach, hips, arms, thighs, buttocks, and back. Men often use liposuction to remove fatty tissue from the chest during gynecomastia surgery, otherwise known as male breast reduction surgery.

Since the lipo procedure tends to be mild on the body, more than one area can be contoured in a single day with this amazing and popular cosmetic surgery.

HD Lipo

HD Lipo body- Los Angeles CA

HD liposuction, otherwise known as Vaser Liposuction, uses ultrasound to break up the fat underneath the skin. This procedure is useful for removing fat deposits from strategic locations on the body to allow the natural structure underneath to show through.

VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy of Resonance, which is quite a mouthful. The ultrasound energy emitted by the VASER device liquefies fat cells before they are suctioned from the body. A tumescent fluid may also be used to further break up the fat cells and anesthetize the location.

Tummy Tuck

A tummy tuck is useful for removing sagging or fatty tissue from the abdominal area. Women who have given birth and people who have lost a significant amount of weight can find the tummy tuck to be a game-changer. The procedure recontours the belly area to leave it flattered and more toned. Tummy tuck surgery can also strengthen the abdominal muscles. If you didn’t have a six-pack before, you might have one after tummy tuck surgery.

During a tummy tuck procedure, also referred to medically as abdominoplasty, excess fatty tissue and saggy skin are removed from the abdominal region. The cosmetic surgeon also tightens and fortifies weakened or separated muscles, which further improves the bodily profile.

In some cases, tummy tucks can remove stretch marks, but only if the damage to the skin falls within the region of excess skin to be removed.

Read our article: Can Cosmetic Surgery Be Used to Smooth Away Stretch Marks?

Just as you shouldn’t think of liposuction as a weight loss procedure, tummy tucks should not be thought of as a replacement for exercise or healthy eating. Cosmetic surgery can help you improve your body after you’ve already put in the arduous work of contouring your body through natural means.

The results of a tummy tuck are permanent, but you will need to do your part to maintain your results by keeping your weight in check.

Mommy Makeover

Having children can alter a woman’s body drastically. You may be able to relate. If your body is left a bit saggy and you wish you could return your body to a younger time, a mommy makeover may be just what the cosmetic surgeon ordered.

Read our article: Mommy Makeover After Childbirth – How Long Do You Have to Wait?

The mommy makeover is a grouping of several cosmetic procedures in one. The primary aim of the surgery is to help women address the effects of childbearing and age. The procedure can be used on the breasts and body to restore her pre-pregnancy appearance.

Common uses of the surgery include the correction of saggy skin along the abdomen and elsewhere on the body. With cosmetic surgeries like the tummy tuck and body lift, stretched and separated abdominal muscles can be tightened and fortified, and stubborn pockets of fat removed to attain the ideal bodily contours.

The breasts can be restored with more volume and size using breast augmentation, which uses silicone, saline, Gummy Bear breast implants, or natural augmentation using the fat transfer technique.

What Should You Wear to Your Breast Augmentation Consultation?

Women can also opt for a breast lift or a breast reduction. If lopsidedness is a concern, breast symmetry can be improved as well with these surgeries, which can include the correction of stretched or overly large nipples and areolas.

Can Breast Reduction Surgery Ease Back Pain?

Following surgery, many women rave about their bodies and the way their clothing and swimsuits fit, which makes a mommy makeover procedure well worth it for many women who don’t want children anymore.

Butt Implants

Butt Implants

If your backside is a tad flat or saggy, butt implants can give you more volume and shape where it counts. Similar to the way breast implants enhance the bust, butt implants make the buttocks rounder and more pronounced.

Butt lifts are made of silicone. The surgeon places the surgical implants into the buttocks by way of an incision created between the butt cheeks.

This cosmetic procedure is ideal for people with very little fatty tissue on the backside. It can take up to four weeks to recover from butt lift surgery.

In some cases, the surgeon can use the fat transfer technique to further enhance the buttock area. This is where fatty tissue is removed from one area of your body and injected into your buttocks to give your backside added shapeliness.

Brazilian Butt Lift

A Brazilian butt lift (BBL) also uses the fat transfer technique. The aim of the cosmetic procedure is to augment the size and shape of the buttocks without the use of butt implants.

Read our article: Key Benefits of the Brazilian Butt Lift

During the procedure, excess fat is extracted from the abdomen, hips, lower back, or inner thighs. This has the added benefit of slimming the donor area while simultaneously enhancing your buttocks.

The surgeon then injects the fatty tissue strategically into the buttock area. A talented cosmetic surgeon can recontour the buttocks with the injected fat cells for natural-looking results. The results can last many years.

Sculptra Butt Lift

The Sculptra butt lift is a non-surgical procedure that seeks to enhance the backside with an FDA-approved filler. The procedure aims to add lift and natural fullness to the buttocks.

The Sculptra butt lift is an excellent alternative to the Brazilian butt lift if your goal is to make your buttocks perkier and rounder without committing to surgery.

Read our article: Sculptra Butt Lift & Traditional Butt Lift – How Do They Stack Up?

Sculptra adds fullness but it also enhances the quality of your skin. The surgeon uses topical anesthesia along with the procedure to ensure you remain comfortable from beginning to end. The technique is minimally invasive and requires no downtime. There is also zero scarring.

Read our article: Scarless Cosmetic Surgery for Discreet Improvements

If your buttocks have areas that are sunken in or lacking in volume, this procedure can give your butt a fuller appearance.

Unlike other injectable fillers that only last a few months to a year, Sculptra injections are long-lasting. That means you won’t have to attend maintenance appointments throughout the year. You get an impressive backside with only a single appointment.

Arm Lift

The arm lift, otherwise referred to as Brachioplasty, aims to reshape the saggy, flabby under portion of the upper arm. You may have heard the term Bingo Wings or Bat Wings. The arm lift can get rid of the flab and sag to restore youthfulness, tightness, and slimness to the upper arms.

During the Brachioplasty procedure, the cosmetic surgeon removes excess skin and fat in order to smooth and tone the affected area. The aftereffect makes the arms more proportional to the rest of your body.

Abdominal Etching

Abdominal etching is similar to the liposuction procedure. The cosmetic surgeon removes unwanted body fat, but not all of it. You may wonder why the surgeon would leave any fat behind. The surgeon uses the excess fat that remains to sculpt and add definition to the abdominal area.

Read our article: Abdominal Etching: Can You Really Get Six Pack Abs?

Abdominal etching also uses a cannula, much like traditional lipo. The cannula is thinner, however, which allows the surgeon to better sculpt the abdominal region, giving you impressive results.

You would be an ideal candidate for this cosmetic surgery if you have minimal fat around your abdomen and want sculpted results you can’t seem to attain in the gym.

Body Lift

Body Lift - Los Angeles CA

A body lift is intended to remove excess fat and address loose, stretched skin along the abdomen and lower body. The results leave you with more proportional abdominal and lower body contours while leaving your skin firmer and tighter.

During the procedure, all the lower body areas are addressed. These include your abdominal area, the sides of your body, your lower back, groin area, and inner thighs.

The best part about the lower body lift is that the incisions are hidden within the natural folds of your body, which means any scarring that develops can easily be hidden with swimsuits and clothing. The incisions could be extensive, however, depending on how much work the surgeon needs to do.

In many instances, the surgeon performs the body lift procedure in stages, depending on your health and body contouring goals.

Thigh Lift

The thigh lift aims to reshape your thighs by reducing excess fat and saggy skin. The results leave your skin smoother and firmer while making your legs more proportional to your lower body.

The incisions used during thigh lift surgery depend on your body contouring goals. For the inner thighs, the incisions begin at the groin area and extend downward, where they then wrap around the backs of the thighs.

Another common thigh lift technique aims to remove excess skin from the groin all the way down to the knee using an incision that follows along the inseam.

Then there is the inner thigh lift that uses a minimal incision in the groin area only.

Your cosmetic surgeon will help you determine which technique is most appropriate during your initial consultation.

Read our article: Tips for Scheduling Your First Cosmetic Procedure with a Cosmetic Surgeon

Like the lower body lift, the incisions used during thigh lift surgery can usually be hidden with swimsuits or clothing, but the incisions still may be extensive.

The results of the thigh lift procedure leave your upper legs slimmer and more proportional, and you should see immediate results, though there may be swelling and bruising along the incision lines at first.

Liposuction vs. HD-Lipo: What’s the Difference?

Cosmetically trimming down your body in the past meant going to the surgeon’s office for liposuction. We don’t need to tell you about liposuction. The procedure has steadily gained popularity ever since it was first introduced back in the 1920s.

It’s almost common knowledge that the safe and effective cosmetic technique removes stubborn pockets of fat from various areas of the body.

Liposuction can be used on the face, neck, chest, back, abdomen, arms, thighs, and even your ankles.

The result is a slimmer profile and more attractive contours, all without slaving away in the gym.

There is another technology you should know about called Hi-Definition Liposuction, otherwise referred to as HD-lipo.

Hi-Def lipo is a body contouring procedure that removes fat and tones and tightens your body. The procedure leaves your body parts looking athletic and defined.

HD-lipo is like traditional liposuction, but there are some distinct differences. Let’s look at those now.

What is Hi-Definition Liposuction?

Hi-Definition Liposuction

You might hear this technology called Hi-definitely liposuction, VASER (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance), or 4D lipo. The technique uses ultrasound energy to break up unwanted fat.

During the procedure, a small incision is made near the treatment site. This allows for the insertion of the HD-lipo device. The device uses ultrasound to liquefy the fat, which makes it easier to remove. The fat is then removed gently via suction, allowing room for additional augmentation procedures.

As a side note, the fat that is removed with HD-liposuction can be put back into your body for popular procedures like natural breast augmentation and the Brazilian butt lift. We call it the fat transfer technique. The fat is sterilized before it is reinjected into the body parts where you want subtle and natural-looking results. Ask Dr. Moein about the fat transfer technique during your consultation.

What Can You Expect from HD-Liposuction?

HD-liposuction tones muscle and tightens skin. You can trim your arms, thighs, waist, and abdomen, and you can even rid yourself of your double chin. Some men may want chiseled abs while women want slimmer and firmer contours. You can have these results with HD-liposuction.

You will enjoy these amazing results without excessive dieting or grueling exercise programs.

The ultrasound mechanism employed makes the fat removal a smooth process. It means you should be back to your usual routine within four to seven days.

How Does HD-Liposuction Differ from Traditional Liposuction?

Attractive Body Contours

When compared side by side, the results from HD-lipo tend to be more significant than those of tried-and-true lipo.

With traditional liposuction, the surgeon uses the cannula to break up unwanted fat. This requires the surgeon to use tugging and pulling motions for clinging and stubborn connective tissue.

With HD-lipo, ultrasound energy melts the fat, making it easier to suction out. This is a major reason HD-Liposuction is given the nickname 4-D lipo because it can safely be used all over the body for impressive results. Anywhere you want more tone or definition so you can turn heads wherever you go, HD-lipo is the cosmetic surgery to request.

Faster Recovery Period

Recovery Period

After undergoing traditional liposuction, most patients require at least 24 hours of inpatient care. You can expect to return to work after ten days, in most cases.

With HD-liposuction, you should be back to work in as little as three or four days. Some patients need seven days of recovery to fully heal. If you feel discomfort or pain, stop whatever activity you are engaging in until after you have fully healed. However, unlike traditional liposuction, which is inpatient, HD-lipo is an outpatient procedure. It means you will return home the same day after undergoing the procedure.

Lowered Risk

Traditional liposuction typically uses general anesthesia when substantial amounts of fat are removed. This ensures your comfort and safety, as you will be unconscious for the entirety of the surgical procedure. When you wake, you will undergo observation for a day, and then you can go home to heal.

Because general anesthesia is used, risks to your health can become slightly elevated.

HD-liposuction, on the other, doesn’t require the use of general anesthesia. A localized tumescent anesthetic is used instead, which means you will be awake for the procedure. You will also be well enough to go home afterward.

And since a single incision is made that is one or two centimeters in length, you will find HD-lipo gentle on the body indeed.

Remove Fat from Anywhere on the Body

Liposuction is meant for large pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. The back, flanks, and thighs are common lipo surgery treatment sites.

Hi-definition liposuction can be used to remove fat from almost any place on the body. Even sensitive areas of the body like the inner knee and ankles, or the face, can be treated with the gentle fat removal process.

Want fat removed from a more typical area, such as the abdomen or the hips? HD-lipo can liquefy the fat all over for a slimmer, more contoured result.

A bonus is that the skin around the treatment area won’t need to be lifted or cut on account of HD-lipo’s skin tightening benefits.

How Long Does the HD-Liposuction Procedure Take?

In most cases, an HD-lipo session at Moein Surgical Arts takes around seven hours to perform. It all depends on how much fat is being removed, and the area being worked on.

You will be awake for the duration of the procedure, but you won’t feel a thing. The procedure isn’t as invasive as traditional liposuction, so you’ll feel relaxed and safe while Dr. Moein slims your body with this revolutionary cosmetic technique.

When Can You See the Results of HD-Lipo?

Results of HD-Lipo

Hi-definition liposuction gives you immediately noticeable improvements. The area will appear sleeker with the fatty areas missing, and with toned skin left behind. However, those are only the initial results.

The true results of the procedure won’t manifest for another twelve weeks following treatment. That means you will get to witness your skin getting tighter the longer time goes on. When those twelve weeks have expired, you’ll notice dramatically greater muscle tone and firmer skin at the treatment site.

Are HD-Lipo Results Permanent?

Both traditional liposuction and HD-lipo offer permanent fat removal. The fat cells are extracted from your body entirely and will not regenerate. That means that even if you gain weight, fat growth in the treatment area will be significantly reduced as there will be fewer fat cells left behind.

You will still need to watch your weight and exercise. If you can manage to live a healthy lifestyle, you can experience long-term results and the best appearance thanks to HD liposuction.

Keep in mind that untreated areas of the body will still experience fat growth.

As far as the tightness of your skin, those results are not permanent. The skin tightening effects of HD-lipo do improve for months. Then, after about a year, you may see your results fade. The rate of fading depends on your lifestyle and age. You can retain the results longer by taking care of your skin. Avoid excessive sun exposure and keep your skin moisturized and healthy.

You can always return to Moein Surgical Arts for skin tightening treatments if you wish to prolong your results.

How Should You Prepare for Liposuction or HD-Liposuction?

Before you are scheduled for lipo or hi-definition lipo, you will need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Moein. During this private, one-on-one meeting, Dr. Moein will ask you about your current state of health, medical history, and the results you hope to achieve. Dr. Moein wants to ensure you understand every aspect of liposuction or HD-lipo before recommending you for surgery.

Once you are recommended for surgery, the date will be scheduled. Before surgery, make sure you have a ride home from our accredited cosmetic surgical center. With liposuction, you’ll want to plan to spend a day in recovery at Moein Surgical Arts, whereby you will return home the following day.

With HD-lipo, you can expect to be home, and in recovery, on the same day.

After the Procedure

After liposuction and HD-lipo, you should plan to take it easy for a few days. Even if a local anesthetic was used, your body needs time to heal. If possible, have someone nearby who can prepare meals and engage in light cleaning so you can rest.

After HD-lipo, you should expect to experience a lymphatic drainage massage. The purpose of this technique is to stimulate your lymphatic system, which aids in the removal of waste from your body.

The surgeon will ask you to wear a compression garment after both types of procedures for up to four weeks following your procedure. We may ask you to return to Moein Surgical Arts for follow-up visits to ensure long-term results and assess for rare potential complications.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for HD-Lipo?

Candidate for HD-Lipo

Hi-definition liposuction is suitable for people seeking to remove stubborn pockets of fat from certain areas of their bodies. The aesthetic technique is safe and effective for all types of bodies and skin tones if you are in good general health.

To be considered for surgery, your BMI needs to be in the normal range (around 32). If you have recently undergone significant loss, your doctor may want your weight to stabilize for a few months before recommending you for surgery. The effects of HD-lipo work best when your weight is stable and close to your ideal based on your height.

Who is Not a Good Candidate for Lipo or HD-Lipo?

You will not be a good candidate for liposuction or high-definition liposuction if you have a high BMI.

With HD lipo, you would be denied surgery if your skin elasticity doesn’t have the bounce-back effect to make skin tightening possible.

Then some are at higher risk for complications, such as pregnant and nursing women. Dr. Moein would ask that you wait until after childbirth to consider a technique like liposuction or HD lipo.

Other factors that may get you denied for both surgeries include taking anti-inflammatory or blood-thinning drugs, and if you have health conditions like immunodeficiency disorders that require medications that could interfere with these procedures.

How Much Does Liposuction vs. HD-Lipo Cost?

Traditional liposuction costs around $4,000 on average. Meanwhile, hi-definition lipo costs $6,500 on average.

While HD-lipo is slightly more expensive, it gives you that extra skin tightening effect you don’t get with traditional liposuction.

Will Insurance Cover Liposuction or HD-Liposuction?

Your health insurance plan is unlikely to cover a procedure like lipo or HD lipo. These are elective procedures that don’t benefit your health. Your insurance provider can give you further details regarding the specifics of your coverage policy.

If insurance won’t cover the costs of your liposuction procedure, there are other ways to help you afford improved contours and tighter skin. Medical financing is one option, as is crowdsourcing, where you can get your friends and family to pitch in and help you out.

Ready to Experience the Life-Changing Benefits of Liposuction or HD-Lipo?

You already know about liposuction. Now you know more about hi-definition lipo, otherwise known as 4D lipo or VASER lipo. Contact Moein Surgical Arts throughout Los Angeles, Encino, or Glendale, and schedule a consultation with Dr. Moein to ask about lipo or HD lipo today. (310)694-4486.

Pros and Cons of Vaser Lipo – Cutting Right to the Chase About this Body Contouring Wonder

There’s a joke that goes, “I love my six-pack so much, I cover it with a layer of fat.”

That joke is relatable because most of us do have a pesky fat pad that covers the body’s underlying musculature.

But you don’t want that layer of fat, do you?

You would prefer that your muscle tone show through your skin. And you want to look your best in the clothes you wear, especially when you slip on a swimsuit.
There are essentially two ways to get that toned and fit body you crave.

You can slave away on the treadmill and diet until you can’t take it anymore. However, some of us have done that already and still have that final fat layer covering up all the muscle tone underneath.

What gives?

Or you can schedule a consultation with a cosmetic body contouring surgeon to ask about VASER Liposuction treatment instead.

What is VASER Lipo?

VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance and uses ultrasound technology to melt and remove fat from your body. Only a few body contouring surgeons offer the innovative technique at the moment. It represents the best way to get that toned, fit look with a single procedure.

Finally Erase the Fat!

VASER Lipo is a minimally invasive surgical procedure and is useful for removing stubborn pockets of fat that don’t readily respond to diet and exercise. The ultrasonic vibration sound energy is emitted using a handheld device that breaks up unwanted fat and frees it from the connective tissue. The fat is then sucked out of the treatment area through a hollow tube known as a cannula.

The cosmetic procedure is FDA approved, safe, and effective for removing that last layer of fat from small areas around the body. When the treatment is over, the fat will be gone, allowing the body’s true musculature to show through. The technique can be performed on a variety of body parts from head to toe, including your face, neck, upper arms, chest, flanks, midsection, upper thighs, and buttocks.

You can even bulk surgeries in one procedure. It will give you eye-popping results all over without the discomfort and long recovery times associated with traditional liposuction.

And without killing yourself in the gym.

How Does Vaser Lipo Compare to Traditional Liposuction?

With traditional liposuction, you are injected with a mixture containing intravenous salt solution, a local anesthetic (lidocaine), and a medication that helps to contract your blood vessels and limit blood loss (epinephrine). After injecting the mixture, we insert a cannula to suction the fat cells and the injected fluid from under the skin. You are under general anesthesia during this time, so you don’t know what’s going on while the surgery is happening.

VASER Liposuction is much different. For one, many treatments of VASER require a local anesthetic, meaning you are awake during the procedure. The treatment area is numbed to allow the sound waves to do their work, so the fat can be sucked out. The cannula is smaller on the VASER Lipo device when compared to the tubes used in standard liposuction. This lets your surgeon access those smaller areas that give you true definition for that “shredded” look.

The procedure is powerful enough to eliminate significant areas of fatty tissue and yet it’s gentle enough to treat the more delicate areas like the arms and neck. The sound energy heats the fat and causes it to vibrate, which shakes the fat free from surrounding tissues and causes it to melt. We can then suck out the fat easily using the VASER Liposuction device.

Pros and Cons of VASER Lipo

VASER Lipo is a Safe Procedure

As you know, everything has a good and a not-so-good side. For the sake of transparency, let’s examine this procedure with extreme scrutiny and determine what you should know when deciding if VASER Lipo is right for you.


Precise Fat Removal

The VASER device can remove that last fat layer covering your six-pack using sound energy waves. Get that toned look you want with a simple procedure that only takes a few minutes!

VASER Lipo is a Safe Procedure

A prime benefit of using ultrasound energy to remove fat cells is that only the fat cells undergo significant changes. In truth, they melt, allowing them to be removed easily. The VASER device consists of a small probe that is tiny and blunt, so accidental damage to surrounding tissue is unlikely.

The entire premise of the surgery is to target only the fat while preserving the health of your blood vessels, nerves, and skin tissue, making it safe as can be. The FDA agrees.

While you may have only heard of VASER Lipo, the technology was approved by the FDA for the purposes of body contouring in 2002.

Rapid Healing & Recovery

You should expect to rest for a day following your VASER Lipo procedure. You should be able to resume your normal activities after two or three weeks. This is much faster than you would expect with traditional liposuction or other surgeries that require general anesthesia.

No Bruising or Scarring

The VASER device leaves very little bruising or swelling. Any discomfort you do feel after surgery can be alleviated with over the counter or prescription medication at the discretion of your surgeon. Your surgeon will give you further details based on your unique state of health.

Scarring is also reduced thanks to the small size of the cannula. The incisions required to insert the suction tube are tiny and hidden within the natural folds of your body. When they heal, they disappear completely, in most cases, or they will only be slightly visible. You want the results to show after the procedure, not scars, and VASER Liposuction gives you that opportunity.

You Are Awake Thanks to Local Anesthesia

Traditional liposuction uses general anesthesia. VASER Liposuction gives you options.

With VASER, you can have a local anesthetic, which would be the case if you are treating a single body part only. Or your surgeon can use general anesthesia if working on multiple body parts. General anesthesia is also good if you would rather not be awake for the procedure. If you don’t want to remember and just want the results, your doctor can make it happen.

At any rate, your surgeon will help you make the right decision based on your health history and body contouring goals whether or not general anesthesia should be used.

VASER Lipo Reshapes the Body

Holding the VASER device turns your cosmetic surgeon into an artist. Each precise movement removes fat gently, allowing for the reshaping of various areas of the body.

Get Eye-Popping Results!

The procedure is clinically proven to give you the standout results you want and leaves your skin smooth and beautiful. Not only can VASER Lipo help you lose that last layer of fat on multiple areas of your body, but there tends to be a skin tightening effect, as well. This can help you look younger and more vibrant with your new, out of this world body contour.

The best part is that you can see instant results now and even better ones later. The surgery is ideal for anyone who has struggled with weight gain and finds that exercise and diet fail to give you the dramatic transformation you crave.

Ongoing and Long-Lasting Results

The results you can experience with ultrasound liposuction are instantly noticeable. You will then see even better results over time and throughout the next few months. The results can last for years by adhering to a healthy lifestyle.


While VASER Lipo is medically proven to help you lose stubborn fat, and considered safe by the FDA, all surgeries have risks. Here are some you should know about.

Extended Exposure to Sound Waves

The ultrasound frequency emitted by the VASER device seems harmless enough. Using high powered sound waves, the fat is shaken and dissolved, and the surrounding tissues are left alone. However, if the energy waves are directed at the treatment area for too long, a burning effect can result. This problem can be alleviated by choosing a skilled surgeon who knows the proper amount of time to direct the energy for the safest possible fat removal.

Chance of Infection

Even though the surgery is minimally invasive, blood and melted fat could leak from the incision points into the operated areas. A serious infection could result. This is another warning to choose your surgeon wisely. You will be safer in the hands of an experienced body contouring surgeon.

Significant Swelling can Occur

While the effect is rare, you may experience some swelling after the VASER Lipo procedure. Due to the very nature of sound energy, all swelling should be minimized. To help your body retain the proper shape following surgery, we might ask you to wear a compression garment for some time while healing.

Some Discomfort Afterward

In other rare cases, some pain or slight discomfort can linger following the procedure. Tell your doctor about any changes to your status so that they can be managed with OTC or prescription pain medication.

VASER Lipo is a Relatively New Technology

For FDA approval to have happened in 2002, you may feel like VASER LIpo has been around for a long time. However, the technology is still new to many surgeons. In fact, only a few doctors offer the sound energy technology at this time. Choosing a doctor who is experienced with the machine’s use and not someone who is using it on you for the first time is probably the best move. That’s a good way to avoid complications. It will also minimize after-effects so you can enjoy the life-changing and positive results without any of the bad.

Skin Rippling Can Result

All liposuction techniques, including VASER, can cause the skin to take on a rippling effect. To ensure this doesn’t happen, your surgeon will make sure you a good candidate for the procedure. The best candidates for VASER Lipo are those with good skin tone where we can feel the musculature underneath. With this type of skin that has excellent elasticity, a rippling or wavy effect is less likely to occur.

Some Skin Irritation May Occur

Because it is a liposuction procedure, you may experience skin reddening, itching, or a burning sensation after the surgery. These effects should dissipate on their own and can be controlled with OTC or prescription-strength solutions. Tell your cosmetic surgeon if you experience any after-effects like skin irritation.

Gaining Weight or Losing Weight Can Cause Issues

VASER is a cosmetic surgery that works best when your weight has stabilized. You will lose some weight during the liposuction technique. However, if you lose or gain a significant amount of weight after the surgery, your results can be negatively affected.

Too Much Fat and Blood Loss Can Be Serious

Removing too much fat or causing the body to lose an excessive amount of blood can be fatal. Because the sound energy liposuction procedure is considered a surgery, it does come with risks to your health. These health risks can be very serious. You are at a higher risk of injury or worse if you are unhealthy. That is why your doctor will assess your health before removing any fatty deposits using VASER technology.

The Procedure Alone Cannot Guarantee Life Changing Results

If you hope to get the most fat removing success from VASER Lipo, you must commit to living a healthy lifestyle. Exercise regularly and eat healthily, maintain a healthy weight, and VASER LIpo can give you the extraordinary body you’ve always wanted.

Imagine Your VASER Lipo Before and After Photos

VASER Lipo Before and After Photos

If you are a man or woman with realistic expectations who is at your target weight and you live a healthy lifestyle, VASER Lipo just might be perfect for you.
