Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso, offers his patients in the Miami, FL area a new fantastic surgical approach to reducing unsightly cellulite. By cutting the fibrous bands causing the lumpiness within the skin with VASERsmooth, it will release the puckered skin, and eliminate the dimpling. VASERsmooth by Sound Surgical is a part of their ultrasound liposuction equipment, and it will create smoother skin in 6 – 9 months. Patients will see an immediate improvement in their skin, however, will see the full benefit at the 9-month mark. As this is an extremely new technology, there are very few plastic surgeons equipped to do this procedure. On the VASER side, Sound Surgical has just started producing this equipment, and Dr. LaGrasso is one of the very first plastic surgeons to use this technology.
Please contact our patient advisors for a consultation with Dr. LaGrasso, and he will privately discuss with you the benefits of eliminating your cellulite with VASERsmooth.

"Surgery with Doctor Lagrasso - Miami, FL - I have been wanting to do this procedure for a while. I had shape, but wanted my waist to be smaller and much more defined. I was really unhappy with how I looked and this seemed like a great alternative. After searching through several doctors, I decided to go with Dr. Lagrasso. His bed side manner is truly impeccable, he is patient, professional, and super detailed. I could not be happier with my choice. Today was my surgery, and even though I'm super swollen, bruised, and in ridiculous amounts of pain, I can already see the conturing in my body's shape. I am very hopeful that once the swelling goes down, my body will look like I always dreamed it to. I am staying in the recovery home of Miriam landford, and honestly, I don't know what I would do without her. She has tended lovingly to every single one of my needs. From making me delicious healthy fresh foods to help me gain my strength again, to keeping me warm, comfortable, as well as managing my medications as well. Her house is quiet, peaceful, relaxing, immaculately clean, and beautiful. I couldn't be happier with my choices. Now just waiting for the pain and swelling to go away :("- K. / RealSelf / Oct 17, 2016
VASERsmooth procedures are performed under local anesthesia, and in an out-patient setting. Dr. LaGrasso will mark the preoperative area with markers, noting both the peaks and valleys in the skin with different colored markers. Next, you are brought to the operating room. While you lie on the operating table, the affected areas are cleansed with antiseptic solution. A few small (approximately 1/8 inch) incisions are made in the skin in areas less likely to be visible. Next, the VASER ultrasound probe is introduced painlessly under the skin through the fat. When the bands that tether the skin and dimpling is created, the edge of the probe is brought against the band, and the ultrasound energy is turned on. This cuts the bands, and after the bands are cut, any “peaks” of fat are taken down with the regular VASSER ultrasound probe, and then with a suction cannula. Lastly, the wounds are then dressed, and you will recuperate in our recovery room.
Downtime, scarring, and bruising are minimal. You can return to work in 1 – 2 days, and resume regular exercise, and normal activities in about 2 weeks. Please call our office if you experience any negative side effects from the procedure, such as fever, infection, excessive pain, or heavy bleeding from the incisions.

Can I Add Liposuction?
Yes. Dr. LaGrasso does offer liposuction alongside a VASERsmooth treatment. During a consultation, he will discuss with you the risks and benefits of each procedure. He may even suggest liposuction to accompany the cellulite reduction treatment. This is all dependent on your aesthetic goals, and if liposuction is warranted.
When Will I See Results?
Our VASERsmooth patients will love their results immediately, however, healing takes time. The body will continue to repair itself after the procedure, and the best results can be seen in 6 – 9 months. In the meantime, everyday your skin will appear more smooth and less dimpled than before the procedure.
