Minimally Invasive Liposuction Procedures to Sculpt Your Dream Body

  • Post published:January 18, 2024

Minimally invasive liposuction offers a quicker, less painful way to achieve body contouring goals, with the added benefit of minimal scarring.

Are you eager to eliminate those stubborn fat pockets that are clinging to your silhouette, but worried about the idea of surgery? You can do so with minimally invasive liposuction procedures at Yoel Rojas Plastic Surgery. These sophisticated techniques allow you to achieve your desired contours with fewer potential complications, shorter recovery times, and often, stunningly enhanced definition. 

Vaser Liposuction

VASER lipo, short for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance Liposuction, is a minimally invasive fat removal procedure. Unlike traditional liposuction, VASER uses advanced ultrasonic technology specifically designed to gently reshape your body.

How Does It Work?

VASER lipo begins with the injection of a saline solution mixed with anesthetics into the targeted area. This solution helps to numb the area and shrink blood vessels, minimizing blood loss and reducing bruising. Then, a small probe is introduced through a tiny incision. 

This probe emits ultrasound waves that vibrate at high frequencies, creating bubbles that agitate the fat cells. These vibrations specifically target and break down the fat cells, leaving surrounding tissues like nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue relatively undisturbed.

Once the fat cells are dislodged, they mix with the saline solution. The emulsified mixture of fat and liquid is then gently suctioned out. This precision allows for a more controlled and gentle fat-removal process.

What Are the Benefits?

Precise Fat Removal: VASER targets specific fat deposits and this allows for contouring and definition that wouldn’t be possible with traditional methods.

Smoother Skin: Preservation of surrounding tissues leads to tighter, smoother skin with minimal dimpling or irregularities.

Faster Recovery: Less trauma translates to quicker healing and shorter downtime so that you can get back to your life faster.

Enhanced Results: VASER’s ability to sculpt and define muscles underneath the fat layer often leads to more dramatic and naturally contoured results.

High-Definition VASER Liposuction 360

HD Lipo360 is an advanced form of body contouring that takes the principles of VASER Liposuction to a new level. It’s a comprehensive approach that treats the entire torso—front, sides, and back—to achieve a more complete, 360-degree sculpting effect.

How Does It Work?

HD Lipo360 starts with the same ultrasonic technology used in standard VASER Liposuction. However, the approach is more extensive and detailed. The procedure involves treating the entire torso area—abdomen, flanks, lower and upper back, and sometimes the chest area in males, or the hips and waist in females. This comprehensive treatment ensures a harmonious, well-proportioned result.

What Are the Benefits?

Advanced Sculpting Techniques: Using specialized cannulas and VASER technology, the surgeon precisely removes fat and defines the underlying musculature. This not only removes unwanted fat but also highlights natural contours, like the abdominal muscles or the waistline.

Minimally Invasive Approach: Small incisions are made in discrete locations, through which the ultrasonic probe and cannulas are inserted. This minimally invasive approach reduces the risk of scarring and complications.

Enhanced Definition: The key feature of HD Lipo360 is its ability to enhance and define the natural muscular contours. The meticulous fat removal and muscle definition create a naturally athletic and toned appearance, avoiding an unnaturally “pumped-up” look.

SmartLipo™ Laser Liposuction

SmartLipo™ is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted liposuction technique used to remove unwanted fat deposits and contour the body. It works by liquefying fat cells with laser energy, making them easier to suction out through tiny incisions.

How Does It Work?

The procedure starts with a small incision, typically only a few millimeters in length. Through this incision, a thin laser fiber is introduced into the target area. The laser emits a specific wavelength of light, designed to target and liquefy fat cells. As the laser fiber is moved back and forth, it delivers thermal energy directly to fat cells, causing them to break apart and turn into a liquid state. 

Once the fat is liquefied, it’s easier to remove. A small cannula is used to suction out the liquid fat, while the body naturally absorbs minimal residual fat. An added advantage of the laser’s heat is its ability to stimulate collagen production in the skin. Collagen is a key protein that helps keep the skin firm and youthful.

What Are the Benefits?

Minimal Downtime: SmartLipo’s gentler approach often translates to faster recovery times and minimal swelling, allowing you to resume your routine quickly.

Enhanced Skin Tightening: The laser energy stimulates collagen production, leading to tighter, smoother skin in the treated areas.

Ideal for Smaller Areas: SmartLipo excels at treating smaller areas like the chin, neck, arms, and knees, delivering subtle yet noticeable contouring.

Which Liposuction Procedure is Best for Me?

The appropriate liposuction procedure for you depends on your individual goals, body type, and specific concerns. In essence, VASER Lipo is ideal for general fat reduction and smooth contouring, HD Lipo360 excels in sculpting and defining muscle tone for an athletic look, and SmartLipo™ is best for targeting delicate areas with added benefits of skin tightening. 

The best way to determine which minimally invasive lipo procedure will give you the best results is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Yoel Rojas. Additionally, it’s important to note that these procedures are tools for enhancing body contours, not substitutes for a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Rojas recommends maintaining a stable weight post-procedure for lasting results.

BBL with Vaser Liposuction Before and After

Real patients, real results! This patient wanted a curvier figure with a flatter tummy, smaller waist, and bigger buttocks. She wanted curves in all the right places. We did 360-vaser lipo (abdomen, flanks, and back) and fat-grafted her buttocks.

Her shape has been dramatically improved and now her clothes fit her better. She is super happy and ready to conquer the world. See more B & A photos.
