VASER Lipo removes unwanted fat in an advanced, minimally invasive liposuction procedure. VASER stands for “vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance.” This technologically advanced body contouring procedure has improved upon traditional liposuction with the use of an ultrasonic device to loosen excess fat cells for gentle extraction, and “high definition” results.

What is VASER Lipo, and how does it work?

VASER Lipo is an advanced body contouring procedure that removes unwanted body fat on several body areas. VASER Lipo is less invasive than traditional liposuction. Its unique technology uses ultrasound waves for custom body contouring. The difference is its ability to remove targeted fat while preserving vital tissues such as nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. VASER technology produces custom-contoured results and a faster healing time.

Who is a candidate for VASER Lipo?

If you are close to your optimal weight and have been frustrated that diet and exercise have not achieved the results you are looking for then VASER Lipo might be right for you. Many healthy men and women have seen the benefits of this minimally invasive, low-pain solution. If you have stubborn fatty areas that are affecting your figure, explore the option of VASER lipo.

How does it differ from traditional liposuction?

The main difference between our Palo Alto VASER Lipo treatment and traditional liposuction is how the fat extraction is accomplished. Traditional liposuction uses a cannula and aspirator to remove fat cells. The process involves moving the cannula back and forth to dislodge fat cells. VASER Lipo uses ultrasonic waves to release the fat, dislodging it from the tissue, leading to less trauma to the healthy surrounding tissues.

What is recovery like after treatment?

The number of areas you are treating will determine the length of time you’ll need for recovery. VASER Lipo is a minimally invasive procedure, requiring about a week to recover. If your job requires a lot of movement or is physically demanding, you might need more time.

What areas of the body can be treated?

  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Just about any body part with fatty areas


What are the side effects of VASER Lipo?

When it comes to any surgery, there are always side effects to consider. During your consultation at Cheng Plastic Surgery, we will review all your questions and discuss risks and side effects to help you make an educated decision about body sculpting.

Can VASER Lipo tighten my skin?

VASER Lipo not only removes excess fat but has the added benefit of tightening your skin to avoid dimpling and irregularities that may be left with traditional liposuction. VASER Lipo is a great option, as it creates a smoother outcome.

How long does the procedure take?

A VASER Lipo treatment can take an hour or longer, depending on the areas of your body to be reshaped and sculpted.

When will I see results?

Improvements can be seen by most immediately following their procedure. However, it will take three to six months to achieve optimal results. If you wish to learn more, contact us today and schedule a consultation to receive arguably the best results after VASER Lipo San Jose has to offer.
