You can only do so much to get firm, attractive contours, whether on your midsection, thighs, jawline, or wherever you are frustrated by stubborn fat. While liposuction is an excellent solution, VASERlipo® in Little Rock, Arkansas, can make your body contouring results even better and recovery easier. Dr. Wright is the first Board-certified plastic surgeon in Little Rock to offer this advanced liposuction treatment for women and men who want to enhance their confidence by getting rid of their trouble spots.

What is VASERlipo?

VASERlipo (for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance) is a liposuction enhancement that uses ultrasound energy to liquefy unwanted fat before removing it with liposuction. Ultrasound does not harm surrounding tissues, nerves, and blood vessels, making VASERlipo gentler than liposuction on its own.

What areas can VASERlipo treat?

VASERlipo is less harsh than traditional liposuction, which makes it great for treating a variety of areas, from small, delicate spots to tough, fibrous areas. Common treatment areas include:

  • Jowls and under the chin
  • Neck
  • Belly
  • Back
  • Waist
  • Hips
  • Male chest (gynecomastia surgery)
  • Upper arms
  • Inner and outer thighs
  • Buttocks

Dr. Wright can remove fat from more than one area during the same procedure and combine VASERlipo with other plastic surgery procedures such as tummy tucks, facelifts, and breast augmentation. During your consultation, he will discuss the improvements you want to attain and develop a personalized surgical plan.

What happens during a VASERlipo procedure?

Dr. Wright performs VASERlipo as an outpatient procedure using a local or general anesthetic, depending on the overall surgical plan and patient preference. As with traditional tumescent liposuction, he infuses the targeted fat with a tumescent solution to control pain, minimize bleeding, and make the fat firmer and easier to remove. Next, he creates small incisions and inserts the specialized VASER probe that breaks apart and liquefies the fat with ultrasound energy. Dr. Wright then replaces the probe with a narrow tube called a cannula and suctions the liquified fat away. If the skin lacks elasticity, he may use Renuvion® skin tightening for optimal results. Once the surgery is complete, treated areas are wrapped in compression garments.

Renuvion® for Smooth Lipo Results

Whether combined with liposuction or performed to smooth out unsatisfactory results, this innovative, minimally invasive treatment tightens and rejuvenates the skin from the inside out.

Which is better, VASERlipo vs. traditional liposuction?

VASERlipo offers several benefits over traditional liposuction on its own, including:

  • Gradual skin tightening: Heat from the ultrasonic energy stimulates collagen production in the skin and surrounding tissues for improved skin retraction.
  • Increased fat removal: Because the ultrasonic energy targets fat cells, VASERlipo provides more fat removal than liposuction.
  • Faster procedures: Fat removal takes less effort, reducing surgical time.
  • Reduced bleeding: Because Dr. Wright doesn’t physically dislodge the fat with the cannula, blood vessels remain intact.
  • Less swelling and soreness: Because fat removal is gentler with VASER, treated areas are typically sore for just a few days.
