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
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
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.
"Bridget and Amanda made a super weird and uncomfortable procedure quite easy! I was really nervous, but their calming manner and conversation relaxed me. The Geneveve treatment was completely painless and there was no down time. My significant other thoroughly enjoys the results as well."- K.M. / Yellowpages / Jun 26, 2017

Laser Liposuction FAQs
Which areas can be treated?
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?
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?
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.
