Throughout history, heat has been used to promote health and well being. Vaser Liposuction is a revolutionary technique that harnesses the power of heat to selectively break up unwanted body fat and reshape your body.
Vaser Liposuction can be used to treat fat in the following locations:
- Waist (love handles)
- Back (bra line)
- Thighs (inner and outer)
- Hips (saddle bags)
- Face (chin and cheeks)
- Arms (back of arms)
What are the benefits to Vaser Liposuction?
Vaser Liposuction is the ideal body shaping tool for reducing localized fat deposits in areas that are resistant to exercise and diet. Vaser Liposuction allows your doctor to selectively target unwanted fat deposits and eliminate them. You’ll see an overall circumference reduction in the targeted zone, as well as skin tightening in the treated area.
Is Vaser Liposuction the same thing as liposuction?
Vaser Liposuction and liposuction are both highly effective procedures for the removal of unwanted fat, however, Vaser Liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure with virtually no downtime. Traditional liposuction is considered a highly-invasive procedure and may require several days or even weeks of down time. In addition, Vaser Liposuction is excellent for treating certain areas that traditional liposuction cannot treat such as the bra line, under the chin, above the knees and ankles. Depending on your goals and physical condition, Vaser Liposuction can be an alternative to traditional liposuction, or your doctor may recommend a combination therapy of Vaser Liposuction with traditional liposuction.
How soon will I see results and how long will my results last?
Typically, you’ll see dramatic improvement within 1 to weeks after the treatment, but some areas such as the neck and jaw can show even faster results. Because healing and metabolism rates are different with everyone, results following a Vaser Liposuction treatment usually require 12 to 16 weeks to become fully apparent and improvement continues to be seen for several months.
Is this a “one-time” treatment?
Primarily, Vaser Liposuction treatments are considered “one-time” treatments. In adults, fat cells cannot grow back once they’ve been removed. If you gain weight after having Vaser Liposuction, the excess fat will accumulate in areas where you did not have the treatment. After the final results are achieved, if your physician is not satisfied with the results, a “touch-up” treatment may be performed.
Is there a recuperation period?
Typically, you can resume normal activities the day after your treatment, however, it is recommended you wait several days before resuming strenuous activity such as exercising.
Vaser Liposuction is safe, having been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in the United States.
We specialize in using techniques that minimize the scarring and invasiveness of the procedure, so there will only be minimal discomfort.

What our patients are saying about Elite MD
“I just completed my third procedure with Elite MD, and I could not been more impressed. After spending 10 years living in Orange County, where plastic surgeons seemed to be on every corner, I took my time finding a location here in the Bay Area. First, my consultation (which was free) was so welcoming and informative. I worked with Vanessa to discuss my goals and areas that I would like to have worked on. She spent over an hour on the phone with me, and followed up with another hour in person. She was very personable and honest with me. She worked with me on pricing and financing through care credit. Moving on to the staff. My pre-op appointments I met with medical assistants, nurses and my surgeons (Dr. Geers & Dr. Bansal), all of whom answered my questions in depth, walked me through what to expect and also provided education on nutrition and lifestyle changes that would lead to optimal results. I opted to have vaser lipo on my whole torso, front and back (done in 2 separate surgeries) under local anesthesia right there in the office. I walked in and walked out several hours later. I was back to work in 3 days. This was last September. The results are phenomenal, the staff worked with me to make sure all my post op appointments worked around my work schedule. Because I was so impressed with the results and the ease of the procedure, I just had my arms done as well. 3 days post op and I am just as thrilled as I was before. Please be careful when choosing a surgeon, find someone who will be honest with you, educate you on the results you can expect and teach you how to maintain your results for permanent satisfaction. I continually send family and friends to Elite MD, and as soon as I heal up from this last procedure I am heading to see Ricki, RN for some dermal fillers!! Thank you ELITE MD!” – by Caitlin H.
