What is VASER Lipo®?
VASER Lipo® is an advanced body contouring procedure that selectively removes unwanted body fat. An alternative to the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction, VASER Lipo® uses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology designed to gently reshape your body.
What distinguishes the VASER Lipo® procedure is its ability to differentiate fat from other important tissues — such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. This innovative technology breaks up fat while preserving all other important tissues. This approach promotes smooth results and rapid healing.
How Does VASER Lipo® Work?
First, the area to be reshaped is filled with a tumescent saline solution that helps numb the site and shrink the blood vessels (to minimize blood loss and reduce bruising). This solution wets and fills the area to be treated, making it easier to break up fatty tissue with the VASER Lipo® System’s ultrasound energy.
Next, a small probe is inserted into the treatment area. It transmits sound energy to break up and liquefy fat while preserving other important tissues.
Finally, the liquefied fat is removed through a gentle suction process designed to minimize trauma to surrounding tissue structures such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue.

How Much Fat Can Be Taken? Can You Treat Multiple Areas at Once?
VASER Lipo® allows us to treat multiple body areas at one time. The Elite Contour Med Spa staff will be able to give you a better idea of what is right for you and how much fat will be taken out during your procedure. Bear in mind that this procedure is not intended as a weight loss solution. The goal is to create a slimmer silhouette. You may not notice a significant amount of weight loss, but you should be pleased with your slimmer new shape.
How Soon Will I See My Results? What is the Recovery Time?
This varies with the extensiveness of the procedure: the amount of fat removed, the number of areas treated and so on. Many patients report that they see results immediately after the procedure with the final result around three to four months. The Elite Contour Med Spa staff will help you establish realistic expectations.
