Liposuction is a surgical procedure that uses a suction technique to remove fat from specific areas of the body, such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms or neck. Liposuction also shapes (contours) these areas. Other names for liposuction include lipoplasty and body contouring.
VASER liposuction refers to a type of liposuction that breaks apart fat cells and loosens them from your deeper tissues so that fat can more effectively be removed during the treatment.
VASER is an acronym for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance. This ultrasound technology uses powerful waves to disrupt the bonds between fat cells. VASER liposuction is considered a more controlled and gentle kind of cosmetic procedure, and it requires a skilled and experienced provider to do it right.
You may be a candidate for liposuction if you’re a healthy person who doesn’t smoke or have a history of bleeding conditions. Liposuction isn’t considered a weight loss tool. People who have the best results with VASER liposuction, or any type of liposuction, are already within 15 pounds of their ideal weight. This procedure is for people who are trying to spot-treat fat deposits and reveal muscle tone underneath.

Liposuction is a fat-reduction technique during which excess fat is removed from very specific areas of your body. It’s not a replacement for weight loss with diet and exercise, but it is a strategy that can help slim down stubborn areas.
To perform the procedure, a hollow metal tool, called a cannula, is placed in the fat layers underneath the skin. A high-pressure vacuum attached to the cannula draws the fat away. The cannula rapidly oscillates by 2 mm, enhancing the removal of fat cells and providing patient comfort. These procedures are performed awake with analgesic medication and inhaled nitrous oxide gas. This allows for a better result and quicker healing time.
Mansfield Aesthetics offers several types of advanced liposuction procedures. These include:
During a VASER® procedure, the fatty areas are infiltrated with tumescent solution. The fat cells are then treated with ultrasound energy, causing emulsification, allowing for easy removal from the body through a gentle suction process. The surrounding tissues are left intact, giving smoother fat removal, and enhanced contours, with less pain and recovery than traditional liposuction. We use the latest generation of VASER device to protect patient safety and give the best results.
A saline solution that contains a local anesthetic and adrenaline is placed in fatty tissue to numb the area and constrict the blood vessels to lessen bleeding. The solution is injected into the area, causing the fat to become swollen and separate, allowing for easy removal while providing patient comfort.
What areas can be treated with liposuction?
Mansfield Aesthetics offers liposuction for areas typically resistant to diet and exercise.
A comprehensive examination and consultation is done to determine if you’re a good candidate for liposuction, and if so, which type. To be a good candidate for liposuction, you should be a non-smoker and have realistic expectations about the procedure.
