VASER liposuction cost depends on how many areas you consider for liposculpture. The time it takes to contour your concern areas determines your VASER liposuction cost. The surgical time involves time for infiltration of the tumescent solution, followed by VASER time to administer the ultrasound energy that melts the fat, followed by the time required to suction the fatty tissues.
Variables Affecting VASER Lipo Cost
The time it takes to VASER an area will be most affected by two factors. The first factor that affects the time required for fat removal is the volume of fat deposits that need to be removed. This is affected by the size of the area by surface area and the degree of adiposity, meaning how wide in girth you are. The second factor that most affect the operative time includes whether you have undergone prior liposuction. This consideration is important since a previous liposuction procedure will result in significant scar tissue buildup. The buildup of scar tissue not only affects operative times but also influences blood loss during surgery by the injury to blood vessels that may occur since more mechanical force is required to remove fat cells. For example, the average time to VASER the back can double from 25 minutes to 50 minutes if you have had prior liposuction of the back. Fortunately, VASER technology uses ultrasound waves to loosen fat cells before removal.
During your initial consultation for a liposuction cosmetic procedure, you will have ample time to discuss the benefits of ultrasound technology. You will also be provided an estimate of how long your liposuction surgery will take.
The number of treated areas most determines VASER liposuction cost. Areas for consideration for VASER liposuction usually include the abdomen and the upper, middle, lower back, and flanks. Other areas may include the neck, arms, chest, armpits, upper/middle/lower back, medial thighs, lateral thighs, and even the lower leg calves.
Typically, patients elect to have body contouring of either their front side, backside, or even circumferentially, termed 360 lipo. VASER liposuction of the front side may include abdominal etching and reduction of the waistline, starting at the cost of approximately $10K to $12K.
VASER liposuction of the backside will involve contouring the upper/middle/lower back, flanks, and lateral thighs, with fat transfer to the buttocks, termed Brazilian Butt Lift. The VASER liposuction cost of the backside starts at $8K to $10K.
Many patients elect to undergo both the front and backside body contouring simultaneously since circumferential liposuction provides maximum contouring capacity and superior outcomes. If you have dreamed of having a fantastic body, we urge you to contact the SurgiSculpt to complete a consultation to get a VASER liposuction cost and availability.

Is VASER Lipo Safe?
Every surgery carries a certain degree of risk. VASER liposuction procedures are very refined and reliable.
When performed by a talented board-certified plastic surgeon or experienced cosmetic surgeon, liposuction can be as safe and effective as any other surgical treatment as long as the patient follows supportive post-surgical instructions.
VASER liposuction is minimally invasive and safe. It has a shorter recovery time than traditional liposuction since fat removal is less mechanically traumatic. Many patients are back to work within a few days. Most recover from the pain and swelling associated with the procedure within 3 to 4 weeks.
The results are evident almost immediately in most cases, with minimal swelling. Within just a few weeks, you will be allowed to return to full routine and physical activity. If you are interested in the average cost of VASER liposuction or a customized cost for your unique needs, we encourage you to schedule a consultation with our surgeons. If you need financing options, please don’t hesitate to discuss this with one of our body contouring coordinators. Lipo procedures are scheduled for patients following the completion of medical history and delineation of the scope of the surgical procedure. Realistic expectations and counseling regarding your recovery process will be communicated.
