Board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Armando Soto offers VASER liposuction treatments to contour specific areas of the body that are unresponsive to diet and exercise. The VASERlipo system is an advanced form of liposuction, which harnesses the power of highly refined ultrasound waves to liquefy fatty tissue cells. During the procedure, a chemical solution is injected to the target area to allow the ultrasound high frequency vibrations to break down fat cells. Once this process is initiated, tiny probes are used to further break down unwanted fat tissue and are then removed via a small suction drain or cannula. Patients travel from all over the country to receive this advanced treatment at Aesthetic Enhancements Plastic Surgery in Orlando. Results leave patients with beautifully smooth and tight skin.
Vaser Vs. Traditional Lipo@headingTag>
VASERlipo is considered gentler on the body with less recovery time, less bruising and swelling than traditional liposuction. The high-end system enables Dr. Soto to have more control to contour specific areas of the body to obtain the smooth, seamless look patients desire. Another pro of VASERlipo is that it focuses on liquefying fat cells without harming the surrounding tissue. During tumescent liposuction, once an incision is made to the target area, a thin tube is inserted to remove fat cells, which is powered by a motorized suction system. This process does not use ultrasound frequency to break down fat cells and therefore is harsher on the body, removes all the tissue it comes in contact with, and has a longer recovery process.
During/After the Procedure@headingTag>
VASERlipo is performed with general anesthesia in our on-site accredited procedure room. The amount of fat cells and area being treated will determine the length of the procedure but commonly the treatment could last 1 – 2 hours. Immediately following the procedure, patients are escorted to our on-site recovery room for a short observation period and a compression garments is applied. The garment should be worn 4 – 6 weeks to ensure proper healing. Most patients can return to everyday activity within a day or two, with more significant exercise allowed after a few weeks. Patients will see a positive change in their body contour as soon as a few days after surgery, but due to the expected swelling, patients should not expect to see their final outcome for at least 2 – 3 months.
"My patient experience has been excellent! During my pre-op Dr Soto and his staff were extremely informative and patient when answering my questions and alleviating my concerns. Surgery was smooth and stress free as it could possibly be. Post-op care instructions were very thoughtful and comprehensive. It allowed me to have a very smooth recovery, especially in that critical first week. Results have been fantastic. I would not hesitate to make this decision again with Dr. Soto and would recommend his office to anyone considering this life changing procedure!"- A.O. / Yellowpages / May 13, 2017
"I had a breast lift and augmentation done with Dr. Soto in March 2017, and it was the best choice I ever made. I saw 4 plastic surgeons in the Orlando area before finally choosing Dr. Soto. I went into the process of originally wanting a breast lift with saline implants, but after much research I decided to go with silicone because of the way they look, feel, and the overall quality of the silicone implants. Of the other 4 plastic surgeons, 2 would not perform the lift on me because they felt it wasn't necessary, and the other doctor gave me a quote that was way more than I could afford. When I came to Dr. Soto's office it was a breath of fresh air. His staff is very sweet and attentive. I was seen right away after checking in. Dr. Soto listened to exactly what I wanted and after gave me his suggestions and what I was to expect with the surgery and my outcome. He was very realistic and upfront with me, which I really appreciated. After my consultation, I decided to go ahead with the surgery. I had a breast lift and breast augmentation done with silicone implants (275 cc for my left breast and 300 cc for my right since my left breast was larger). I wanted perkier breasts that fit my."- Anonymous / Vitals / May 08, 2017
"I just had a Mommy Makeover with a Breast Reduction and Lift. I was shocked at what I saw when I looked at myself in the mirror. My breasts looked better than when I was in high school and college. I have always had extremely large breasts and was unable to wear a bikini (never!) and suffered severe back and neck pain. I am only three weeks post op and I look amazing and feel amazing! Dr. Soto and his team are great! They are genuinely concerned about my recovery and monitor me often to ensure I am healing properly. I am so thankful to Dr. Soto and his staff for helping me look and feel better!"- Anonymous / Vitals / May 07, 2017

Whether you are here for a first time visit or here for a post op visit, you will always get world-class service with great results!"- Anonymous / Vitals / May 04, 2017

Laser Liposuction FAQs@headingTag>
Which areas can be treated?@headingTag>
When undergoing any cosmetic procedure, it’s important to have the proper expectations. That being said, VASERlipo is not a weight loss solution or solution for excessive obesity. It is a type of liposuction that helps to contour areas of the body that cannot be achieved by exercise and diet. VASERlipo can treat the following areas:
Are the Results Permanent?@headingTag>
Once the fat cells are liquefied and removed, they are permanently lost. However, to maintain positive results, a healthy diet and daily exercise routine should continue to be practiced. Maintaining a healthy weight will ensure long-lasting results.
Does it Hurt?@headingTag>
Since most patients choose to undergo general anesthesia, there is typically no pain during the procedure. However, patients may feel minor pulling or pitching if they refrain from anesthesia, as well as some mild discomfort following the procedure.
