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.
"I had been researching breast augmentations in the Philadelphia area for months when I made an appointment with Dr. Sorokin. Him and his staff were incredible and made me feel very comfortable. His staff worked with me as I tried to decide on an implant size, and were very patient with me even when I changed my mind a few times. My surgery was a breeze and I recovered SO quickly. I am so satisfied with Dr. Sorokin and would recommend him to everyone!"- C.M. / Google / May 10, 2016
"From the moment I met Dr.Sorakin I knew I wanted him to do my breast augmentation surgery! He is very patient and understanding, answering all questions and concerns. I went to several other doctor consults and was concerned I would never have full "round" breasts, but Dr.Sorakin assured me those results would be possible and I would be in the best care. After surgery I was in very little pain and back to work in 4 days ! I am extremely happy with my results ! They look better than I ever would have imagined! I would definitely recommend Dr.Sorakin!!"- S.B. / Google / Apr 30, 2016
"It has been about four months since I got my BA, and I could not be happier!!! They are absolutely perfect. Dr Sorokin and his team are absolutely amazing. From consultation to my very last post op visit I could not have asked for more out of them. They were precise, and patient with me since I was such a scardy cat! Cannot wait until summer thanks to Delaware Valley Plastic Surgery! :)"- C.D. / Google / Apr 12, 2016
"the best doctor, staff, and experience! Cherry Hill, NJ - I just recently had a breast augmentation with Dr. Sorokin of Delaware Valley Plastic Surgery and this is my first real surgery...Let me say, it was the very best experience from beginning to end and I wouldn't recommend anyone to go to anyone other than Dr. Sorokin. Both him and his staff were lovely, warm, inviting, encouraging and excited for me - which is exactly how one should feel when going in for an elective procedure! There aren't enough positive things to say about his practice! He even called to check on me afterwards, which I appreciated, and is very communicative when needing to ask questions/advice, etc. All his girls there are wonderful and made me feel so at ease before my surgery, and after. I still love my card and cup I received at my follow-up - that personal touch makes a world of difference for me! There isn't anyone else I would go to for any future procedures and I've been recommending him to everyone. #teamsorokin haha!"- M. / RealSelf / Apr 12, 2016
"Dr. Sorokin and his entire staff provided me with excellent medical treatment before, during and after my surgery. I am very pleased with my results and would recommend him to anyone considering having plastic surgery. Dr Sorokin is highly skilled and extremely knowledgeable. His care of his patients makes him unlike any doctor I've ever been to. The entire staff at his practice also needs to be recognized for being so caring and attentive. You won't find a more qualified practice!!!"- T.R. / Google / Apr 04, 2016
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.
Vaser Liposuction FAQs@headingTag>
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.
