Development of Vaser Liposelection

Vaser Liposelection is performed under general anesthesia and takes longer to perform than regular liposuction. With regular liposuction, the doctor is removing the fat, whereas with Vaser Liposelection, the doctor is sculpting the body and skin for a smooth look.

A small laser breaks down the fatty tissues. This allows other nerves and tissues to be unharmed, reducing swelling and recovery time. The cost of the procedure is more than regular liposuction, but the results are worth it.
