Traditional liposuction is one of the most effective ways to eliminate isolated areas of fat from the face and body. People visit board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Evan Sorokin for ultrasonic liposuction from Philadelphia and south New Jersey because this advanced technology improves upon a good thing. Using the VASER® Lipo System, Dr. Sorokin provides refined body contours with minimal pain and recovery time. You can attain that fit, well-defined form that has been out of reach on your own without taking weeks off from your active life.

Benefits of Ultrasonic Liposuction
At our New Jersey practice, ultrasonic liposuction is so because it provides smooth, attractive results with minimal recovery time. This advanced liposuction technology is especially effective for:
- Removing large volumes of fat from common trouble spots like the abdomen, hips, and thighs
- Enhancing removal of dense or fibrous fat deposits
- Targeting fat while leaving surrounding tissues unaffected
- Improving areas already treated with liposuction
As with all liposuction techniques, you should be at or near your ideal body weight before undergoing ultrasonic liposuction. It should not be used as a weight loss method.
Liposuction with VASER
Dr. Sorokin performs VASER Lipo using local anesthesia. After saturating the targeted areas with tumescent fluid to control bruising, swelling, and discomfort, he inserts the VASER ultrasonic probe through tiny incisions near the areas he's going to sculpt. The ultrasonic waves break up and liquefy the fat cells. As with traditional liposuction, Dr. Sorokin uses a thin, hollow tube called a cannula to gently suction away the liquefied fat. The procedure typically lasts between 30 minutes to a few hours depending on the amount of fat Dr. Sorokin removes.

Recovery after Ultrasonic Liposuction
While liposuction of any kind is a surgical procedure, ultrasonic technology improves the recovery process. Because underlying tissues, blood vessels, and nerves are not harmed by the ultrasound energy, patients experience less bruising, swelling, and pain than with other techniques. You will need to wear compression garments on the treated areas for about 2 weeks to promote healing in a smooth, compact shape. While your slimmer contours will likely be noticeable right away, you will reach your final results in about 3 to 6 months, depending on the areas treated.
