What is Ultrasonic Liposuction?

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


When speaking to our Denver plastic surgeon about liposuction, be sure and ask about your procedure options. There are a number of different liposuction techniques, and our doctors are quite skilled at determining which is right for you.

One technique that is growing in popularity is VASER(R) Liposuction, which is more commonly known as ultrasonic liposuction. VASER Liposuction makes use of the power of ultrasonic waves to make your liposuction experience even easier and simpler.

In a traditional liposuction procedure, solid deposits of fat are removed using a small tube known as a “cannula.” An anesthetic solution is injected first, but the targeted fat cells are solid when removed.

However, with VASER Liposuction our Denver plastic surgeon uses safe but powerful ultrasonic waves to break up the fat cells and liquefy them. They are then removed using a cannula.

The end result is a liposuction procedure that results in less bruising and swelling, as well as a reduced recovery time. VASER Liposuction is thus an excellent option for patients looking to remove stubborn deposits of fat with minimal after effects.

Our plastic surgeons will explain all of the details to you in person. Regardless of which liposuction procedure you opt for, you should be confident in the knowledge that the procedure has an excellent safety record and our doctors have decades of experience.
