What is Vaser Liposuction?
Vaser liposuction is an innovative method that ruptures fat tissues/cells and loosens the deeper tissues. The purpose is to remove the fat tissues/cells effectively. The procedure uses advanced ultrasound technology with powerful waves that penetrate fat tissues, break cell membranes, and weaken the bond between fat cells.
A growing body of research evidence, including META-Review studies, has confirmed that Vaser liposuction follows a more controlled approach, reducing the risk of complications and allowing the patient to achieve their weight loss or body contouring goals efficiently quickly.
Vaser Liposuction Cost in Miami
The average cost of Vaser Liposuction in Miami is between $6,500 and $7,000. On the other hand, the average cost of traditional liposuction is Between $5,700 and $6,200. So, Vaser liposuction is slightly expensive than the conventional procedure.
Many factors determine the overall cost of Vaser liposuction. These include body areas that require treatment, the number of fat tissues to remove, and the time spent by the surgeon to remove the fatty tissues. In addition, it also depends on the surgery facility, location, and experience.
Some surgeons perform the procedure under local anesthesia, while others prefer general anesthesia. Keep in mind that general anesthesia is more expensive than local anesthetic agents. Insurance does not cover Vaser liposuction because it is elective surgery.
Who is a candidate for Vaser liposuction?
Experts recommend discussing your requirements with a board-certified plastic surgeon to know whether you are an ideal candidate for the procedure. Research shows that nonsmokers with a healthy and stable weight are suitable candidates.
If you are overweight or obese, you can undergo Vaser liposuction, but you may not achieve the desired results because this procedure requires people to have a relatively low-fat percentage.
In addition, ineffective rehabilitation, recovery, or healing is directly proportional to poor results. For example, if you smoke, your incisions won’t heal quickly. At the same time, you will have more noticeable scars due to restricted blood flow to the healing tissues.
Procedure for VASER liposuction
During Vaser liposuction, the surgeon will administer general or local anesthesia depending on your needs or body requirements. Your health provider will mix a tumescent fluid or saline solution with an anesthetic. Next, the surgeon will inject the solution into the target area, such as the abdomen, thighs, or hips.
Once done, the surgeon will insert ultrasound probes into your skin by making a small incision. The purpose is to break the fatty tissues or rupture the bond between cells. Next, the surgeon uses a cannula to extract tissues/cells.

During the first week, you will experience tenderness, bruising, inflammation, and pain. However, you can reduce the discomfort by following your health provider’s instructions. For instance, wear compression garments, apply fluid absorbing pads, consume more water, eat veggies/fruits, and undergo massages.
Wear compression garments
Your surgeon will give you compression garments after the surgery. Compression garments can reduce postoperative bruising, inflammation, and swelling. Although compression garments are not comfortable and stylish, you can use them to achieve better results.
Apply Fluid Absorbing Pads
Your surgeon may recommend applying fluid absorbing pads to the wound, especially when you have fluid weeping. Applying pads during the first two to three days to treatment areas can absorb the leaking fluid and reduce the risk of infections.
Some surgeons recommend lymphatic drainage massage during the recovery period. The massage offers various benefits, such as removing excess fluid, swelling reduction, decreased inflammation, and speedy recovery with optimal results.
