Vaser Liposuction

This article was updated on July 21st, 2023 at 12:58 pm

Vaser liposuction, also called LipoSelection, is another alternative to traditional liposuction. Vaser ultrasonic liposuction is still a process by which subcutaneous fatty deposits are removed to improve the appearance of a specific body area. Ideally, patients treated with Vaser liposuction are in good physical condition and are looking to enhance their figure rather than lose weight.

Sound Surgical Technologies, LLC, introduced Vaser Ultrasound Liposuction in 2002. This FDA-approved technology uses ultrasound to remove fat gently. Liposuction is more accessible, and the contours of the silhouette are smoother.

In the case of Vaser liposuction, the tumescent liquid, or a saline solution mixed with anesthetics, is injected into the area to be treated. Vaser liposuction uses neither the cannula nor manual movements to break the fatty tissue, the laser, nor the water pressure; It uses the vibration of high-frequency ultrasound to break down fat cells.

Differences between vaser liposuction and classical liposuction

Classic liposuction removes the access fat to decrease body size. Although it shapes the body, shaping properties are superficial compared to Vaser liposuction.

In Vaser liposuction, since muscles are defined better, it is possible to have a more natural and muscular look. In short, this method provides better shaping. While muscular breasts and stomachs are desired in the male body, women want to define butt and straight stomach. Ultrasonic liposuction enables these muscular looks to be visible.

Advantages of Vaser Liposuction

  • Ultrasonic soundwaves only target Fat Tissue and work on these Tissues. Therefore, other tissues like muscles, nerves are not damaged.
  • Fat tissue removes with ultrasonic liposuction can be injected into other parts of the body. This way, different parts of the body can be shaped and plumped.
  • Post-operative pain, swelling, and bruising are less than traditional liposuction.
  • Roughness and deformation after traditional liposuction are eliminated when fat is removed with Vaser liposuction.
  • Ultrasonic liposuction controls fat tissue distribution. Therefore, an elegant and shaped body line can be achieved.

Vaser liposuction in Turkey is more affordable compared to other countries and patients are operated on by expert doctors.

Gynecomastia in men (fat accumulation around the breast) can be eliminated with Vaser liposuction.

After the operation, there will not be fat accumulation in the operated region even though the patient gains weight.

With the decision of the doctor and the patient taken together, the intervention is performed on patients under local or general anesthesia in a hospital environment without any surgical intervention. The duration of the operation can vary depending on the size and number of the area to be treated. For the area to be treated by liposuction, small 3-5 mm holes are made on the body. The suction of grease is carried out by inserting fine cannulas through these holes.


With liposuction, fat can be easily absorbed by technological methods. In particular, localized areas with an accumulation of fat are selected, and serum is infused into these areas. It contains pain relievers, local anesthetics, and particular medications to reduce bleeding.

Once these are introduced into the tissue, an ultrasound device called a Vaser is applied to this area, and the fats inside the tissue are mixed into the fluid. After that, the long rods called fine cannulas are inserted through the 2mm holes to suck out the melted fat in the fat mass; like an electric vacuum cleaner, the fat from this area is drawn outward. After removing the excess fatty tissue from under the skin in this way, we make our patients wear different types of corsets.

The tightening of the enlarged skin occurs over time, and several edemas can form after the operation. To make this edema disappear more quickly, we have shown massage techniques to our patients, and we find that these modifications disappear on average within 6 to 8 weeks. In this way, the degreasing process can be carried out in a straightforward and painless manner.

Preparation before ultrasonic liposuction

Patients should stop smoking and alcohol consumption and taking blood thinner medication 10 days before the operation.

Patients must stop using vitamin E, other vitamin types, and herbal tea 10 days before the operation as these have blood-thinning properties.

Since patients are operated on under general anesthesia, all food and liquid consumption must be stopped 9 hours before the operation.

Frequently Asked Questions

When can I see vaser liposuction results?

Ultrasonic liposuction will provide fast results as tissue damage is prevented by removing fat cells in a homogenous and selective way.
Patients will start to feel the difference in the first week after the operation and achieve visible results in one month as edema will decrease.

How much weight can I lose with ultrasonic liposuction?

This is not a weight-loss operation. Although 3-4 kg fat is removed from the body, this operation does not aim for weight loss. This operation aims to remove regional fat and shape the body. It cannot be applied for weight loss.

Ultrasound used at the start of liposuction helps soften fatty tissue, which facilitates liposuction. Neither the cannula nor manual movements are used to break up the adipose tissue. With the help of ultrasound vibrations, the fat cells are broken down. Then, we inject a tumescent alkaline solution which mixes with the detached fat cells to liquefy the fat (emulsification). Finally, the surgeon removes this emulsion using a small cannula.
