Before and After Photos

What is VASER Liposuction?

VASER Liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure to remove the pinchable fat under your skin. VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. It uses specialized ultrasound energy to easily break up fat deposits and remove them from the body. The VASER technology allows for a procedure more gentle than traditional lipo, minimizing excessive trauma to the body. This results in less bruising, less bleeding, and less discomfort when compared to traditional liposuction. In the hands of a talented and experienced surgeon like Dr. Friendlander, VASER can sculpt your body in such a way that it defines your underlying musculature! 

What is the difference between VASER Liposuction and VASER Hi-Def Liposuction?

VASER Lipo and VASER Hi-Def Liposuction both utilize ultrasound technology to separate the fat from the underlying muscles and skin on top of your midsection. VASER Liposuction provides a general removal of the fat cells in the area. This reduces the bulges and can provide you with less muffin top and love handles. VASER Hi-Def Liposuction builds upon this by adding the added benefit of sculpting the abdomen to reveal the muscles beneath. VASER Hi-Def Liposuction adds precision to the approach as it is able to address fat at its most superficial layers, further creating muscle definition and a more athletic appearance.


There are many benefits to undergoing VASER Liposuction of your abdomen and flanks with NorCal Liposculpture. Whether you are simply looking to remove bulk from your midsection or make the ever elusive “V-cut” appear from under your skin, VASER Lipo can help you achieve your goals.

To prepare for VASER Liposuction, Dr. Friedlander will provide you with specific preoperative instructions. While every patient who comes to NorCal Liposculpture has unique needs, there are some general guidelines to follow. Patients must stop using tobacco products as soon as possible. This is not only for your overall health, but to also promote optimal circulation during and after surgery. You will also need to follow the doctor’s instructions regarding altering your medication regimen if it includes any medicines that thin your blood. These may include ibuprofen, aspirin, prescribed blood-thinning medications, and herbal supplements. 

If you have any questions about your preparation for VASER Liposuction, our wonderful staff members will be happy to assist you. Give NorCal Liposculpture a call at  (916) 347-7755 with any questions.

To further prepare you for your procedure day, you will need to appoint an adult to drive you home after your abdominal VASER Liposuction procedure. They will need to remain with you for at least 24 hours. Any medications prescribed by Dr. Friedlander should be filled prior to your surgery so you have them on hand when needed. 

VASER Liposuction Procedure

When you arrive for your abdominal and flanks VASER Liposuction, you will meet with Dr. Friedlander to review your treatment plan. He will mark your midsection with a marker to indicate the incision sites, anatomical landmarks, and areas of focus.

Once you are in the operating room, you will be given sedation to keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. After the anesthetic has taken effect, the doctor will follow his markings and create very small inconspicuous incisions that will be used to access your belly and flanks. From there, Dr. Friedlander will use a thin, hollow tube, called a cannula, to inject tumescent fluid into the treatment areas. This will help numb your abdomen and flanks, further keeping you comfortable. 

After the fat cells are coated in fluid, the VASER probe will be inserted through the incisions, and the emitted ultrasound waves will emulsify fat, making it easier to extract. Once the fat is adequately loosened, the cannula will easily remove the fat deposits and excess fluid with the use of suction. During this time, Dr. Friedlander will sculpt and shape your midsection with precision to provide you with a slimmer silhouette


After your VASER Liposuction procedure, your abdomen and flanks may be swollen and sore. You will need to wear a compression garment continually for several weeks to mitigate swelling and help your body adhere to its new shape. You may have drains placed under your skin for several days to remove excess fluid that may build up under your skin. Even though you may see immediate results from your abdominal and flank VASER Liposuction, your final results may take up to 4-6 months.


Once you have healed from your procedure, you can expect to have a smoother profile. Your stomach and sides will be more toned and will more accurately represent the work you have put in to create the body you want! You may also experience enhanced confidence as clothes will be more flattering on you. No more hiding behind strategically placed hands and accessories. You will be able to flaunt your best self after VASER Liposuction of your abdomen and flanks.

Does VASER Liposuction tighten skin?

Along with removing unwanted fat, VASER has the added benefit of tightening the skin in the treated area from below the surface. However, just like how VASER is not a weight loss procedure, it is also not a skin tightening treatment. The amount of skin tightening achieved by the VASER technology will not yield impressive results if you have significant skin laxity at the treatment area. VASER Liposuction is a body contouring procedure. 
If you are looking to deliberately tighten your loose, sagging skin, NorCal Liposculpture offers Renuvion skin tightening with J-Plasma

Are VASER Liposuction results permanent?

Your abdominal and flanks VASER Liposuction results are long-lasting! Barring any significant weight fluctuations and/or future pregnancies, you can expect your results to essentially be permanent. It is advised that individuals looking to undergo VASER Liposuction wait until their weight has stabilized close to their ideal weight. This includes waiting until they have experienced their last pregnancy in order to maintain their amazing results.
