What is VASER hi-def liposuction?

VASER is a high definition ultrasound liposuction procedure that is a variation of traditional liposuction that strategically removes fat from certain areas of the body to reveal the natural underlying structure. Hi-def liposuction can be used in almost all areas of the body, including the abs, chest, arms, shoulders, buttocks, and inner thigh. Las Vegas, NV board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Khorsandi uses hi-def liposuction to carefully sculpt the bodies of his patients by removing fat from some areas of the body and if needed, reinjecting the fat into the same areas (or others) to enhance contours. Hi-def lipo is a great option for patients who are healthy but need a little help to get well-defined muscles and an impressive, shredded look.

Best Candidates

VASER high definition liposuction is best for patients who are already somewhat fit, have good underlying musculature, and they don’t have a lot of fat to remove. Patients who want to become “shredded” look at this surgery as a way to get them there. They may have a little extra fat, but without assistance from a treatment such as VASER, they can’t get the well-defined body that they desire. Candidates should also have good skin elasticity, so the skin won’t sag after the surgery.

Surgical Technique

VASER uses ultrasound-assisted liposuction to remove unwanted fat. First, the VASER devise transmits ultrasound waves that loosen and melt the fat. Then, Dr. Khorsandi makes thin, well-hidden incisions so the cannula can be inserted to remove different layers of fat. If needed, the removed fat will be purified and reinjected carefully into needed areas of the body. This process is known as a fat transfer.

During/After Surgery

VASER high definition laser liposuction is performed with the patient under general anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility. The length of the surgery will depend on which areas of the body are being treated. After the procedure, patients are put in a compression garment to promote blood circulation and speed healing. Patients should take 7-10 days off of work for recovery after the procedure. Most patients can resume light activity and minimal exercise after 2-4 weeks, and a full exercise program can be incorporated after being cleared by Dr. Khorsandi after about 4 weeks.

What to Expect

After receiving VASER, patients will have an athletic, shredded body that has become the modern standard of beauty. Dr. Khorsandi takes the time during the procedure to make sure the patient’s body will be symmetrical and well proportioned for optimal aesthetic results. 

Expected Cost

Since high-definition liposuction requires more advanced equipment and extensive training, VASER High Definition Liposuction is usually twice as much as regular liposuction. The amount of fat being removed and the area being worked on will affect the total cost. An estimated range of costs for the most common areas are listed below:

  • Abdomen (upper/lower):  $6,000-$14,000
  • Arms:                               $3,000-$10,000
  • Buttocks:                          $3,000-$8,000
  • Chin:                                $4,000-$9,000
  • Inner Thigh:                     $4,000-$10,000
  • Outer Thigh:                    $4,000-$10,000
  • Hips/Waist:                      $4,000-$10,000


Hi-Def Vs. Standard Lipo?

VASER high definition liposuction is considered the next step in liposuction. In standard liposuction, the plastic surgeon is simply removing excess fat from certain areas of the body. Hi-def lipo also removes fat, but it is done in a strategic manner to allow the underlying muscles, like the abs or pecs, to be clearly seen and defined. Hi-def lipo can also include reinjecting the fat that has been removed to further emphasize the shredded contours of the body.

Hi-Def Advantages?

VASER High Definition Liposuction removes the deep layers of fat as well as the fat at the superficial and subdermal layers. This means that pockets of fat between the skin and the muscles can be reached and removed. This is a crucial factor in the way hi-def lipo sculpts the body, instead of simply removing deep layers of fat.

Permanent Results?

Patients will keep the effects of VASER High Definition Liposuction as long as they maintain a healthy, stable weight. Any weight loss, weight gain, pregnancy, or childbirth after the procedure will alter the results. Patients are encouraged to follow a healthy lifestyle, including an active lifestyle and a nutritious diet.
