VASER® LipoSelection is a minimally invasive liposuction technique that can achieve fat reduction results through ultrasound technology. VASER® Lipo in NYC targets select areas of body fat that are oftentimes resistant to traditional fat loss methods. Even with steadfast dieting and exercise, stubborn layers of fat may remain around the abdomen, hips, upper arms, and more. The appearance of excess fat cells around these areas can be extremely discouraging, as these final layers of fat may hide firm curves and definition you have worked hard to develop. Moreover, loose skin can result in a hanging appearance, making certain areas of the body seem older-looking and worn. The VASER® Lipo system can eliminate pockets of fat cells while also promoting skin tightening to add youthful-looking shape to the body.

VASER® LipoSelection uses ultrasound energy to deliver fat reduction results. Small incisions are made around the target areas and tiny probes are inserted under the skin. These probes deliver ultrasound energy to fat cells, separating them from surrounding body tissue for removal. The VASER® Lipo system strictly targets excess fat cells, while leaving fibrous tissue unharmed. Once these fat cells are detached from nearby tissues, they are gently suctioned from the area through specialized cannulas. The ultrasound energy from VASER® LipoSelection can cause a contraction of collagen fibers under the skin’s surface, resulting in gradual skin tightening benefits for patients.
Yes. VASER® LipoSelection can be used alongside other liposuction procedures to provide optimal results, including SmartLipo®, SculpSure™, power assisted lipo, tumescent liposuction, and super wet lipo. Additionally, VASER® Lipo can complement other body contouring techniques. Dr. Levine will discuss with you which procedures may best enhance your VASER® LipoSelection results.
VASER® LipoSelection should not be used for weight loss. Instead, this advanced liposuction technique is designed to remove small amounts of fat from targeted areas to sculpt the body. If you are looking to add shape and definition to areas that have not responded to diet and exercise, or remove excess fat while tightening skin, then VASER® LipoSelection may be a viable option for you. VASER® Lipo can firm skin while also removing pockets of fat for smooth, natural-looking results. Dr. Levine will advise whether VASER® LipoSelection is an ideal procedure for your treatment goals during your consultation at our New York office.
The exact number of required VASER® LipoSelection treatments will depend on your needs and goals. However, many patients see considerable VASER® Lipo results after just one treatment. Dr. Levine will discuss how many treatments are necessary for you to see optimal VASER® LipoSelection results.
Those undergoing a VASER® LipoSelection procedure require either local, twilight, or general anesthesia, depending on the specifics of your procedure, as well as the area(s) being treated. Dr. Levine will discuss which type of anesthesia is ideal for your VASER® Lipo procedure in NYC during your consultation.
VASER® Lipo recovery time is dependent on the specifics of your procedure, as well as your body contouring goals. Mild swelling and bruising are common after undergoing VASER® LipoSelection for fat reduction and may last for up to a week after treatment. Many patients are able to return to their daily routine within a few days of their VASER® LipoSelection procedure.
VASER® LipoSelection results are long-lasting, as targeted fat cells are removed from your body to enhance contours and add shape to your physique. However, it is possible for additional weight gain, genetics, or aging to lead to another accumulation of fat cells. Patients are encouraged to maintain a healthy quality of life in order to sustain their VASER® Lipo results. A dedicated diet and exercise plan can enhance your newfound results following your VASER® LipoSelection procedure.
In order to maximize your VASER® LipoSelection results, it is important to follow all pre and post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Levine.
Certain products and supplements should be avoided in the weeks prior to your VASER® LipoSelection procedure, unless medically necessary. By doing so, patients minimize their risk of bruising and swelling. Blood-thinners and medications that contain ibuprofen or aspirin should be avoided. Patients should also refrain from taking multivitamins and herbal supplements.
Patients may be recommended to wear a compression garment after undergoing VASER® LipoSelection. This garment assists your recovery in the weeks following your procedure by reducing swelling and improving skin tightening. Patients can wear their compression garment while going about their day-to-day routine. Additionally, lymphatic massage may be recommended to promote healing and enhance the appearance of skin around the treatment area. Lymphatic massage can improve your body’s immunity after liposuction, enhance your circulation, and result in smooth, glowing skin.
Certain medications, including Tylenol, Bromelain, and Arnica Montana, may be recommended to alleviate pain or discomfort post-procedure. For more details regarding our post-treatment care suggestions, click here.
