What to Look for in Vaser Liposuction Before and After Photos

/ Dr. Aric Aghayan
Vaser Liposuction Before And After

Vaser liposuction before and after photos can tell you a tremendous amount about a surgeon’s skill level and experience. Studying before and afters on a surgeon’s website is a good way to find out, a) if the surgeon has experience with your chosen procedure, b) if the surgeon is skilled and can achieve excellent results, and c) if the chosen procedure is actually the right one for you. 

If you’ve never looked through plastic surgery before and afters before, however, you may not know where to start. In the guide below, we’ll walk you through the top 6 things to consider as you peruse various plastic surgeons’ Vaser liposuction images. 

Whether it’s a Vaser liposuction chin before and after or a thigh Vaser liposuction before and after, we’ll help you identify the most important qualities of the images so that you can make an educated decision when choosing a plastic surgeon for your Vaser procedure.

But first, what is Vaser liposuction?

What Is Vaser Liposuction?

Before And After Vaser Liposuction

Unlike other forms of liposuction, Vaser liposuction is fast and smooth. No agitation is required to dislodge fat from the surrounding tissue. Instead, sound energy (ultrasonic energy) is used to gently liquify the fat. This makes it so much easier to pull out via a suction cannula. 

In many cases, Vaser liposuction can actually provide superior results as well. Skin tightening helps, and because of the nuanced way that fat is removed with Vaser, a surgeon is able to do more detail work. Sometimes, the fat is even used in other procedures, such as breast augmentations or Brazilian butt lifts.

What to Look for in Before and After Vaser Liposuction Pictures

Here’s what to look for and how to spot the best before and after photos for your upcoming Vaser lipo procedure.

#1 – Even lighting in all photos

Photos taken for before and afters should be evenly lit without digital touch-ups. After all, you want to see the full picture, even including blemishes. This gives you an accurate view of how the patient’s body has changed after Vaser liposuction.

#2 – Consistent photo angles

Like lighting, photo angles must be consistent across the pictures. If someone’s stomach liposuction is photographed from an angle in the before image and then straight on in the after image, this won’t give you a consistent view, from which you can clearly see the surgical improvements. 

#3 – Patients with a similar age, build, and skin tone

Ideally, you want to look for photos of patients who have a similar age, build, and skin tone as you. This will allow you to see what your results may look like. 

Likewise, look for before pictures that look similar to the way you do now. Again, this will allow you to see what your results may look like more accurately. 

#4 – A focus on your target treatment area

Vaser liposuction can be performed most anywhere on the body, but some plastic surgeons may specialize in performing this procedure only on some areas. 

For example, If you notice a surgeon has a lot of Vaser liposuction chin before and after photos (to remove double chins), this may mean that that surgeon doesn’t have equal experience performing stomach lipo or thigh lipo. Always look for your target treatment area in before and afters. 

#5 – Flat, hard-to-see scars

Scarring after Vaser Lipo should be minimal, if apparent at all. If you see large or significant and noticeable scars, consider this a red flag. 

#6 – Smooth contouring that matches your desired look

Typical Vaser liposuction should remove stubborn fat and contour the body for a more flattering appearance overall. Many people get this surgery on their abdomen and flanks, but the procedure can also be performed on the chin, hips, thighs, arms, and other places. 

In some cases, fat grafting (for example, breast fat grafting) may also be used to transfer fatty tissue to a more desirable location. If you are looking to define your muscles for a more athletic look, you may want to consider high definition Vaser liposuction. 

All of these factors can influence your outcome greatly, but do keep in mind that not all surgeons perform these procedures. It is, therefore, important that you choose a surgeon with experience in your particular area of interest. Furthermore, make sure that that surgeon’s results match your desired look. 

Again, if you want a sporty look, try high definition liposuction. If you want a curvier, sexier look, a fat transfer procedure may be more appropriate.
