Sometimes, even the best diet and exercise program is not enough to achieve the sculpted appearance you desire. VASER Hi Def® Liposuction can help apply the finishing touches for you. This state-of-the-art procedure has increased in popularity with men and women who want dramatic results in terms of removing unwanted fat from certain areas of the body. Best of all, when compared to traditional liposuction, VASER body sculpting is far gentler on the body in terms of comfort and recovery time. Dr. Jeffrey LaGrasso is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon who offers this procedure to create personalized results for his patients.
VASER liposuction works by removing fatty tissue from around certain muscle groups to enhance the visibility of the lean muscles. Dr. LaGrasso artistically performs this procedure to reveal an athletic physique as well as the ever-popular “six-pack.” Our team normally recommends VASER to patients who want more definition rather than overall fat reduction. This minimally invasive procedure causes no damage to other body tissue and does not require a general anesthetic.

VASER body contouring and body sculpting
VASER liposuction is most suitable for individuals who are at or near their target weight and have a relatively healthy lifestyle. During your consultation, Dr. LaGrasso will perform an examination and determine whether you are healthy enough for treatment. Even if a patient has been previously turned down for traditional liposuction, they may still be a candidate for VASER. This technology allows many patients to bypass the side effects and downsides of liposuction while enjoying wonderful results. Dr. LaGrasso will explain how to prepare for surgery and the steps required to help keep the weight off following the procedure.
To begin the VASER body sculpting treatment, a local anesthetic is administered to numb the treatment site and shrink the blood vessels, which works to minimize bruising. After creating a small incision, we insert a small probe into the area that emits an ultrasonic wave to gently break down fat cells. Dr. LaGrasso and his staff have experienced the most success in treating the abdomen, arms, back, buttocks, chest, flanks, thighs, and waist. Once the fatty tissue is softened, Dr. LaGrasso will use controlled suction for removal. The incisions are then bandaged, and patients can rest in our comfortable recovery room.
VASER liposuction surgery recovery
Traditional liposuction normally comes with significant downtime, taking weeks or months to recover from the swelling and discomfort. With VASER Hi Def lipo, patients can expect to return to their normal routine within a few days. Keep in mind that factors such as your overall health and the number of treated areas will play an important role in the length of your recovery time. Dr. LaGrasso will give you a more specific timeline for recovery during your consultation.
One important thing to know about VASER liposuction surgery is that it is not a method of weight loss. The procedure is meant to remove both deep and superficial fat to let the muscles underneath show through more effectively. VASER body contouring can create chiseled abs and sculpted muscles as well as a slender waist. Whether you desire prominent pectorals or sculpted upper arms, many of our patients are thrilled about their final results. While VASER liposuction is considered permanent since the fat cells are eliminated, patients should stick to a diet and exercise program to maintain their slimmer results for years to come.

Intense surgery and a lengthy recovery time may be true for traditional liposuction, but Dr. LaGrasso can implement new techniques to change the game for patients who want a toned and sculpted look. VASER is also known to encourage the production of collagen, which results in smoother and tighter skin. The noninvasive nature of VASER body sculpting makes it very accessible to individuals in the Miami-Dade area.
