The Difference Between VASERLipo and Liposuction

Liposuction is a surgical procedure performed to remove excess fat and reshape and contour areas of the body. Using a cannula, your physician will remove the unwanted fat through an incision using a surgical vacuum.

Liposuction is not intended for a weight loss method and cannot substitute healthy habits of diet and exercise. It is intended for patients within 30% of their ideal weight. Treatment areas can include the thighs, flanks, underarm, back, below the buttocks, upper arms, and abdomen.

On the other hand, VASERLIPO removes the fat using ultrasound technology and a small tube. During VASERlipo, a local tumescent anesthesia is used. Lidocaine and Epinephrine is injected into the skin to numb the area.
