For decades, traditional liposuction has been a trusted way to target unwanted fat. It allows for the removal of fat deposits resistant to even the healthiest lifestyle. However, technology is constantly improving, and today there are more new and efficient ways to remove unwanted body fat than ever. VASER Liposuction had its beginnings in Italy in 1992. Italian surgeon Dr. Michele Zocchi demonstrated that ultrasound energy could selectively destroy fat while preserving the integrity of the denser surrounding tissues. 
To perform a VASER treatment, a physician first injects tumescent fluid to aid in removing fat. Then, the small VASER device (about 2–4.6-mm in length)  is gently inserted below the skin’s surface. The device will emit ultrasound energy to break down fat so it can easily be liposuctioned away. Since less tissue is damaged in the process, recovery is shorter and the skin retracts more readily after the procedure. Patients can enjoy their optimized results and a smoother, tighter body. Within a short two-hour session, patients can improve their contours with long-lasting results.
VASER Liposuction provides patients with a minimally-invasive way to reveal slender contours and a body they love.
VASER Liposuction can also you these benefits:
- Helps patients achieve an ideal body by precisely targeting stubborn body fat
- A more comfortable recovery than traditional liposuction
- A treatment that can target multiple areas of the body in one session
- Can provide long-lasting definition to the abdomen, back, thighs, and more
- Better skin retraction for a tighter appearance
Healthy men and women wanting smoother, envy-inducing body contours can do so with VASER liposuction. It has provided much-needed help to patients seeking extra assistance after diligently following a healthy lifestyle. However, a consultation will establish guidelines for who will benefit from this treatment.
This treatment can be helpful for you if:
- Are in good general health within an ideal BMI of less than 30 
- Have an adequate amount of fat to get rid of
- Have good skin elasticity in the target areas
- Have realistic goals in mind
- Do not view VASER as a weight loss solution

Personal Consultation with Dr. Baker
Dr. Joshua Baker is a Texas-born and raised cosmetic surgeon dedicated to helping patients succeed. When you come into the office, he will facilitate a friendly and open dialogue so you can address your concerns with ease. You’ll also discuss your medical and surgical histories. Then, Dr. Baker will take the time to learn about your unique situation by asking about your lifestyle and goals. Finally, he will share his honest recommendations as to whether he feels confident a VASER Liposuction treatment will provide the results you desire. If VASER lipo is right for you, we’ll give you a list of instructions to follow before your treatment date.
Preparing for your VASER liposuction is extremely easy. Only a few things need to be completed before treatment. You will be asked to:
- Stop smoking because it is known to constrict the blood flow needed for healing.
- Choose someone you know to drive you home once treatment is complete.
- Pick up medications ordered by Dr. Baker.
- Do not eat or drink before surgery as instructed.
- Pause certain medications and supplements that may cause bleeding.
We’ll first protect your comfort level by administering anesthesia at the start of the procedure. Once in effect, Dr. Baker will inject tumescent fluid into the areas of concern. This multifaceted combination of saline, epinephrine, and lidocaine does three things. It helps contract blood vessels, expand fat cells, and desensitizes the area, so removing fat can be faster and easier. He will then make a small incision in the respective areas so a VASER device can be placed under the skin, where it will emit controlled ultrasound waves to agitate the tumescent fluid.  Then, the site is contoured by suctioning out the fat deposits from the body with a cannula. Dr. Baker will repeat the process in each area until the desired aesthetic is perfected. Finally, your incisions are sutured closed, and once you’re ready, you’ll be free to return home.
The VASER experience is a minimally invasive surgery that allows patients to make a swift recovery within a few weeks. Patients may experience slight discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the treated areas for the first week. You can assuage the pain by taking the specified medications. A compression garment will be in place to protect your results and help with swelling, and you’ll continue to wear it for the next two weeks. You may return to light activities in about a week, including desk work. After 6-8 weeks, full physical activity can resume.
When the above symptoms go away, you will notice an amazing abdomen, taut thighs, protruding pectorals, a smoother back, and overall well-defined body contours. You can enjoy your new slimmer profile for years because fat cells do not regenerate. But the remaining cells can expand over time, so it is essential to stick to a healthy diet and exercise plan to keep your results.
Corresponding & Complementary Procedures
At Retreat Restorative & Aesthetics, patients have the luxury of choosing from a vast array of body contouring solutions. We’ll review other options for achieving an optimized body at your consultation. They include:
Radiofrequency Power-Assisted Liposuction (RFAL)
Patients wanting to highlight multiple body areas with a treatment that removes fat and tightens skin can choose an RFAL treatment. The minimally invasive treatment makes small incisions and places a device to deliver radiofrequency waves. The RF waves help make fat removal easier and stimulate a healthy dose of collagen under the skin, making the treated area much firmer and toned.
Brazilian Butt Lift
A BBL treatment is a dual-purpose treatment that adds shapely volume to the buttocks while slimming down other areas of the body. A BBL involves removing fat from areas with unwanted fat. The fat is then purified and then injected into the buttocks for better volume and projection.
