VASER Lipo is an innovative liposuction method for eliminating excess fat from certain areas of the body. Stubborn fat is removed and theLiposuction skin’s surface is smoothed, creating a more toned appearance so you can look and feel your best. VASER Lipo is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes ultrasound waves to break up areas of fat. Recovery is quick and there is minimal discomfort. VASER Lipo can be performed by Dr. Sanjiva Goyal, your Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach, FL dermatologist, at Coastal Dermatology & MedSpa.

The Procedure

The VASER Lipo procedure is relatively simple and non-invasive as compared to other liposuction techniques. The target area of the body is first injected with a saline solution. Then, a small probe sends ultrasound energy to the area to break up excess fat, which is removed through a thin tube called a cannula. A gentle suction is used to guide the fat through the cannula. A unique aspect of the VASER Lipo procedure is that other surrounding tissues are left untouched as fatty tissue is targeted, which produces less discomfort and trauma.

Benefits of VASER Lipo

VASER Lipo offers many benefits over other liposuction procedures. Your Jacksonville and Ponte Vedra Beach dermatologist can help you decide if VASER Lipo is right for you. Some of its benefits include:

  • The procedure is minimally invasive.
  • Produces visible results in a single visit.
  • Large amounts of stored fat are easily eliminated.
  • Targets fatty tissue, while sparing other surrounding tissues.
  • Accentuates and refines the appearance of muscles to create a more toned look.
  • Creates smoother looking skin in delicate areas, such as the neck and arms.
  • Less discomfort than traditional liposuction procedures.
