VASER Liposculpting Encino

For many of us, exercise and good nutrition by themselves have major limitations when it comes to dealing with fat deposits in certain areas of the body, such as the abdominal area or the flanks. Such common fitness goals as an abdominal six-pack can seem next to impossible for many of us – but times are changing. With revolutionary body contouring technology VASER hi-def liposculpting, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steven Varkony can provide patients with a dramatically more chiseled figure and results that last. Standard liposuction has helped millions of patients over the decades but the VASER technique offers the potential for previously unprecedented results.

VASER high definition (hi-def) liposculpting is a state-of-the-art procedure that removes stubborn excess fat from problem areas while sculpting the body for visibly defined muscles and a more athletic appearance. Designed for individuals in good health who are at, or close to, their target weight, the procedure can provide results that patients find truly stunning. With abdominal procedures, Dr. Varkony is often able to craft six-packs on people who might not have dreamed that this level of definition was possible in their case.

VASER stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. The hi-def liposuction treatment employs ultrasound technology to liquefy and suction out unwanted fat cells, not just in deep tissue layers, as is typically done in traditional liposuction, but also in superficial and subdermal layers as well. By eliminating fat cells between layers of skin and around muscle groups, the treatment creates a level of definition that would not be possible with older procedures.

Treatment Areas

VASER high definition liposculpting can improve the appearance of the following areas of the body:

  • Abdomen
  • Arms
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Chest
  • Hips
  • Waist

VASER Hi-Def Liposculpting vs. Traditional Liposuction

Liposuction removes fat deposits from beneath the skin with the use of a surgical vacuum, resulting in a slimmer appearance in the treated area. VASER high definition liposculpting breaks down fat cells close to the skin as well as below tissue layers. By using ultrasound to separate fat cells and tissue, the treatment can sculpt around muscles and highlight features.

Studies have shown that VASER high definition liposculpting is not only safer, resulting in reduced blood loss, but skin retraction (tightening) is also improved. These studies have also confirmed that, when comparing results to regular liposuction, VASER hi-def liposculpting can produce better definition in the muscles and superior results overall.


VASER hi-def can provide the following:

Improved body contour

A more athletic and sculpted physique

Defined muscles, including six-pack abs, pecs, biceps, and more

Minimally invasive


Because treatments are customized for each patient, the recovery process will also vary for each individual. Factors include the exact procedure that was performed, as well as the amount of fat removed.

Following surgery, patients will need to wear a compression garment for several weeks. Some bruising, bleeding, or swelling for the first few days following the liposculpting procedure should be expected.

Although most scars will fade over time, Dr. Varkony works hard to place incisions in strategic locations so they are as inconspicuous as possible.

For the best results, patients must follow all post-operative care instructions and avoid any strenuous activities for up to a month following the treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

What makes someone a good candidate for VASER hi-def liposculpting?

People who qualify for VASER hi-def liposculpting are individuals in good health who are already at, or close to, their target weight and possess sufficient muscle tone. Prospective patients should remember that this treatment is not a weight loss procedure and is only meant to define specific sections of the body that do not respond to diet or exercise.

Are VASER results permanent?

Outcomes can last for many years as long as the individual maintains a steady weight, as well as a regimen that includes a healthy diet and regular exercise.
