Ultrasonic liposuction is one of the most effective ways to eliminate isolated areas of fat from the face and body. Using the VASER Lipo System, New Jersey plastic surgeon, Dr. Evan Sorokin, provides refined body contours with minimal pain and recovery time. Patients attain a fit, well-defined form without taking weeks off from their life. This advanced liposuction technology is especially effective for:
- Removing large volumes of fat from common trouble spots like the abdomen, hips, and thighs
- Easier removal of dense or fibrous fat deposits
- Targeting fat while leaving surrounding tissues unaffected
- Improving areas already treated with liposuction
- More precise contouring results and less discomfort compared with the traditional method
- Achieving subtle skin tightening and smoothing in the treated areas
- Treating gynecomastia (male breast tissue) with minimal scarring
VASER Lipo is performed with the patient under local anesthesia. After saturating the targeted areas with tumescent fluid to control bruising, swelling, and discomfort, Dr. Sorokin inserts the VASER ultrasonic probe through tiny incisions near the areas he's going to sculpt. The ultrasonic waves break up and liquefy the fat cells. As with traditional liposuction, a thin, hollow tube called a cannula is used to gently suction away the liquefied fat. The procedure typically lasts between 30 minutes to a few hours depending on the amount of fat removed.
"Amazing Doctor - and very cool ... In all ways of the word ... Love him ?????"- Anonymous / Facebook / Aug 24, 2015
"Researched around for over two years and went to about 4 different doctors before choosing Dr.Sorokin! Couldn't be happier with my choice! Best doctor and staff around - and I say around loosely as I drove an hour to get there. Well worth it all! Thank you!!"- G.B. / Google+ / Aug 23, 2015
"I just had breast augmentation about 2 months ago. Let me start with the consultation. Dr.Sorokin was able to answer any questions I had for him, regarding size, the type of implant, and anything else I could think of. Throughout answering my questions he kept in mind exactly what I wanted out of this surgery and his answers reflected that so that I could have a clear understanding of my choices. Going into the consult with little knowledge on the topic, I thought I would want saline implants, but after discussing my options silicone was the perfect match for the look I wanted. From the day of my original consult until the day of surgery I could schedule more consults to meet with him with more questions or to try on other implant sizes, which I did decide to do. The day of surgery I was of course a little nervous because, well it's still surgery, but completely confident in my Dr and and the results I would have. After being home for only a couple hours after the procedure, Dr Sorokin called me himself to check on me. His care and concern for his patients' is beyond amazing and so personable. His staff is the best I have ever dealt with, from his secretaries to his nurses. Everyone is so sweet and very helpful. As far as my results, I could not have imagined a better outcome. I stressed a certain look I was going for and Dr. Sorokin exceeded my expectations on every level!!! I am beyond satisfied and could not have asked for a better experience, from consult until after recovery. If you're considering cosmetic surgery, I highly recommend booking a consult with him to see for yourself!!"- K.T. / Yelp / Aug 02, 2015
"I am currently receiving tattoo removal here and am very pleased so far with my experience. They got me in within a few days for a consultation and I set up my first appt a few days after. They are competitively priced and have the highest quality machine for tattoo removal. My tattoo is already noticeably coming off and I have only had two sessions so far. The tattoo is on my wrist and was only about a year old so I was very shocked and pleased that I am already seeing results! The staff is professional and friendly. They explain everything great and make sure you are comfortable. The doctor is also very nice. I would recommend Delaware Valley Plastic Surgery to anyone and will go back to them for any future procedures I have done! "- T.M. / Google+ / Jul 08, 2015
"I can not say enough great things about Dr. Sorokin. He has by far exceeded my expectations. From the day of my consultation for my breast augmentation, walking into the office the girls make you feel so welcome and at ease. Meeting Dr. Sorokin, I knew within the first few minutes of talking with him that he was the surgeon for me. His office is beautiful, his staff is incredible and they go above and beyond for you. Dr. Sorokin is not only amazing at what he does but he is caring and compassionate. He takes the time for YOU. I could email him any time day/night and I would have a reply back before I knew it. I would recommend Dr. Sorokin over and over again. Thank you for such a pleasant experience."- N.S. / Google+ / Jun 20, 2015
During/After the Surgery@headingTag>
While liposuction of any kind is a surgical procedure, ultrasonic technology improves the recovery process. Because underlying tissues, blood vessels, and nerves are not harmed by the ultrasound energy, patients experience less bruising, swelling, and pain than with other techniques. Patients will need to wear compression garments on the treated areas for about 6 weeks to promote healing in a smooth, compact shape. While slimmer contours will likely be noticeable right away, patients will see final results in about 3 to 6 months, depending on the areas treated.
VASER liposuction can cost between $3,000-$8,000 depending on the amount of fat being removed during the procedure. During the consultation, Dr. Sorokin will evaluate the patient’s needs and give an estimate of all the costs of the procedure.
It’s easy to get confused by the different liposuction methods: traditional, VASER Lipo, SmartLipo, or Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL). Each method has its own benefits and drawbacks depending on the patient’s needs. During the consultation, Dr. Sorokin will be able to give patients a personalized recommendation about which liposuction method will give them the best results.
Dr. Sorokin has added VASER 2 to his options for liposuction. VASER 2 is a more powerful version of the originally highly acclaimed VASER liposuction system. VASER 2 improves upon the results that can be achieved with the original machine and Dr. Sorokin is the first plastic surgeon in Southern New Jersey to feature this exciting technology.
As with all liposuction techniques, patients should be at or near their ideal body weight before undergoing ultrasonic liposuction. It should not be used as a weight loss method.
The term ultrasonic refers to sound waves that humans can't hear. The waves act to rupture and loosen fat cells, making them easier to suction out from trouble spots with a slender tube, known as a cannula.
