VASER Lipo is a next-generation liposuction system. With this groundbreaking lipo technique, ultrasound waves are emitted to break up and liquify the fat cells for a gentler experience. At Alinea Medical Spa in New York, Dr. Ammar Mahmoud is among the most experienced physicians to perform advanced body contouring procedures in NYC.
How is VASER Lipo performed?
VASER Lipo is performed by first applying a local anesthetic (numbing fluid) to the treatment area. Next, the VASER Liposuction system delivers custom ultrasound energy (not radiofrequency or laser) to effectively melt and liquefy the targeted fat cells.
After the fat cells are liquified and released from the tissues by the ultrasound waves, they are gently removed using suction through a small cannula. The procedure time varies based on how many areas are being treated. It can take as little as an hour or may require several hours.
After VASER Lipo™ body contouring in NYC, you will need to wear a special compression garment to help the skin contract and adjust your newly sculpted body area.
Everyone heals at a slightly different rate. You will be the best judge of when you are ready for certain activities. You can expect to return to your usual activities within two to three weeks after your treatment with VASER Lipo.
