The cost of Vaser Liposuction starts from $6,999 for large zones and $4,999 for small zones. Prices may vary based on the amount of fat the patient wishes to remove.
Unlike a traditional liposuction procedure, a Vaser Lipo boasts quick recovery. It is not uncommon for patients who undergo a Vaser Lipo to return to non-work-related activities just a few days after the procedure.
The length of the procedure depends on the breadth of the cosmetic work. However, on average, a Vaser Lipo takes approximately 30-45 minutes to perform per area.
It’s one of the most frustrating issues for those trying to improve the appearance of their body; you’re healthy, strong, and fit, but your body just doesn’t look the part. That is by no means a failure on your part; for some people, it just so happens that no amount of dieting or exercising can reduce body fat. In these cases, patients cannot improve their shape or figure, no matter how hard they try.
Fortunately, Vaser Lipo utilizes non-invasive techniques to improve figure, shape, and contour. It is a medical procedure used to modify the contours and silhouette of the body by removing fat with ultrasound technology. In other words, specialized technology sends out ultrasonic frequency to break down fat cells, thus improving the body’s shape.
Vaser Liposuction combines liposuction techniques with ultrasound technology to break up fat cells, which are then removed with a cannula. Removing persistent fat deposits produces elegant results in the abdomen, hips, and outer thighs. In addition, patients can transplant this unwanted fat to other areas of the body, such as the face, breasts, and buttocks.
Suitable candidates are patients who want to improve their self-worth and confidence by removing unwanted fat non-invasively. While there are no specific traits that dictate candidacy, there are certain conditions that can make the process more seamless.
Good health and a lack of serious medical conditions are vital for a proper recovery following a Vaser Liposuction. For patients who are looking for more extensive work regarding their fat deposits, SpaMedica recommends selecting a more thorough liposuction procedure.
As is the case with most cosmetic procedures, good Vaser Liposuction candidates have realistic expectations concerning the risks and benefits of the surgery.
Unlike traditional liposuction, Vaser Lipo procedures boast a relatively quick recovery process.
The state-of-the-art ultrasound technology involved in a Vaser Lipo makes it easy to predict the results of the procedure.
The procedure requires a minor incision as the fat deposits are broken down using non-invasive ultrasound technology.
If your weight does not fluctuate much following the procedure, the treatment results can last for the rest of your life.

There is a robust non-surgical body contouring program at SpaMedica. SpaMedica is Canada’s leading non-surgical fat reduction and CoolSculpting center.

At SpaMedica, a Vaser Lipo procedure is performed under local anesthesia that is gently inserted into the fat. This anesthesia numbs and expands the fat cells, exposing them to ultrasound energy. The ultrasound energy gently breaks off the fat cells from their clumps, creating a fat emulsion, for easier extraction.
During the surgery, the fat is removed and stored in a canister. Later, Dr. Bell, who has performed more than 3,000 breast augments, liposuctions, tummy tucks and other body contouring procedures, will shape the area where the unwanted fat has been removed to ensure an excellent body contour. Finally, if the patient wishes, the fat stored in the canister can then be injected into areas where fat augmentation, such as the buttocks and breasts.
