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.
What are the Benefits of VASER Lipo?
Gentler on the body resulting in less bruising and faster recovery times
Only a local anesthesia is needed allowing you to be awake during the procedure
Creates smoother, more natural results
Less overall discomfort during the procedure
More precise contouring
Larger amounts of fat can be removed
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?
Just about any body part with fatty areas
Will weight gain affect my results?
Once you have fat removed, it is gone. Assuming you live a healthy lifestyle with a proper diet and exercise routine, your recontoured shape will continue. But life happens, and should you gain a significant amount of weight, less will develop in the area treated.

It’s been a long 9 weeks and we cannot wait to see all of our loyal and supportive patients back in our
office! We are currently working with a more limited schedule than before, so please be patient as we
navigate through this, together.
There are a few key changes we’ve made to our appointment protocol to ensure we are maintaining social
distancing and following strict COVID-19 health and safety protocols - for you AND for us.
Call from your car once you’ve arrived at the office for your appointment. A staff member will come out
to greet you, take your temperature and conduct a short COVID-19 health screening to make sure you are
good health prior to entering the building. Our doors will remain locked during normal business hours to
ensure only those who have been screened can enter.
Please arrive at your appointment wearing a mask or protective face covering. We will not be able to
bring you inside the office without one.
We will then bring you inside, offer you hand sanitizer and bring you straight back into your
room. We will at no point have any patients waiting in the lobby!
You will be greeted by Dr. Elbert or Dr. Jacqueline wearing their Personal Protective Equipment deemed
necessary by your specific treatment. (N95 mask, gloves, face shield or protective eyewear, etc.) We ask
that you leave your mask on during the procedure, and only take it off if necessary to complete the
All necessary transactions will be done in the room your treatment is being performed. This will avoid
unnecessary back ups in the lobby.
You will then be walked out through the back door of the office. This is the best way to keep all staff
and patients socially distanced while maintaining one steady flow of traffic throughout the building.
And of course, all rooms will be heavily disinfected immediately after you leave just as we have always done
prior to the pandemic. We will place a major focus on high-contact areas such as chairs, doorknobs, counter
tops, mirrors and more.
Watch us take you through what your next appointment will look like:
We are still continuing to conduct Virtual Consultations if you prefer a quicker and no-contact
