What is High Definition VASER Liposuction?

VASER or “high-definition” liposuction is a minimally invasive body-contouring procedure that uses ultrasound technology to melt fat. It is an advanced body sculpting technique that allows your surgeon to remove the unwanted fat surrounding your muscles to create a toned, athletic appearance.
Vaser Lipo was developed to address the limitations of current liposuction techniques that are restricted to removing deep fat only. The VASER acronym stands for, “vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance” and this technology allows surgeons to remove fat more comprehensively. Today, removal of fat is no longer limited to the deep layer, but also includes the superficial layers as well. To understand, we must evaluate an image of human fat layers.
What Makes VASER Lipo Different?
VASER High-definition Liposuction is considered a “Game Changer” in the body contouring liposuction arena. This is because, unlike deep fat, the superficial fat layer is structured in compartmentalized blocks with strong attachment ligaments that do not allow traditional liposuction cannulas to penetrate. But now, with VASER ultrasonic technology, the superficial fat cells can be emulsified and then removed using specialized cannulas that do not disrupt these tough ligaments.
First, the VASER technology gently melts and suctions away unwanted fat. And then, a Cool Helium Plasma skin tightening procedure is used to literally “shrinkwrap” any loose or excess skin. Both of these procedures can be performed simultaneously allowing patients to attain their goals in a single, safe, and minimally-invasive procedure.
Today, fat cells can be completely removed throughout the deep layers and strategically over the superficial layers to provide HD Lipo. This is what has come to be known as “Liposculpting” due to the artistry involved in contouring the body and achieving optimal muscle definition and natural-looking results. This artistic and highly skilled component of VASER HD Lipo is exactly why it is critical that your Surgeon has many years of experience and an expert understanding of muscle anatomy and areas of fat accumulation.

Do I Need Anesthesia to Get VASER HD Lipo?
I consult with a good deal of patients who are seeking liposuction without general anesthesia. Some have reservations because of fear and some due to the added cost. Regardless, the bottom line is that, yes, you will need general anesthesia during VASER Liposuction.
This is because it allows your surgeon to remove all of your unwanted fat without the limitations of pain prevention. Compared to other liposuction methods like Smart lipo (Sonobello), Laser Lipo, Slim Lipo, and traditional liposuction, which can be performed using only a local anesthetic, these methods are very limited in how much fat can be removed. In order to achieve the sculpted six-pack look of HD Lipo, suctioning of all excess fat deposits is required, thereby causing unavoidable irritation of the sensory nerves.
But fear not. At the Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Institute of Orange County, thousands of procedures have been performed safely and comfortably using a general anesthetic. And while avoiding general anesthesia might be attractive at first, when you consider a lifetime of suboptimal results, you may rethink your decision.
How Much Does VASER HD Lipo Cost?
The cost of high-definition body contouring is dependent on your customized and comprehensive surgical plan. This is because the cost of high definition body contouring is most dependent on the surgical time required to complete your transformation. If you require 360 liposuction, which means circumferential, you will require more time for your surgery. If you require skin tightening with either Renuvion J plasma or a strategic tuck, you will require even more time for your surgery. Following your initial consultation, you will get an accurate quote for your body contouring transformation.
Am I a Good Candidate for VASER HD Lipo?
Almost everyone is a candidate for VASER liposuction, as long as they have fat accumulation in unwanted areas. Patients who are closer to their ideal body weight will see the best results in etching around their muscles to obtain muscle definition. Patients with moderate to severe skin redundancy may require an additional tucking procedure along with liposuction.

“I decided to get butt implants because I had very little fat to give me the volume that I wanted it was something that I wanted for a really long time and had actually done research before getting this procedure as well as going with another doctor for a consultation and it did not go well. THANK GOODNESS I FOUND DR. MOWLAVI. Even just upon consultation, I knew he was the doctor for me he knew exactly what I wanted and was very professional. Not only was I was able to pay for the whole procedure all by myself thanks to the different payment options they have for their patients. I am now 5 weeks post-op and feel great. My scars are barely visible and only going to get better. Dr. Mowlavi not only put the implants but he also molded my body. I now have a tiny waist and a big bum. Honestly, if you want to have that PERFECT HOURGLASS FIGURE…GO TO HIM. He is truly an ARTIST and will sculpt your body perfectly…”
