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.

"Sculpsure Treatment for Stomach Fat - Cherry Hill, NJ - Dr. Sorokin has an amazing practice and a wonderful staff. - - I had SculpSure done on April 13 2016 to my stomach. It was a fast treatment and didn't hurt that much. It felt like a deep warming sensation. I was sore for a couple days after the treatment but not too bad. It felt like I did a lot of situps but it made me confident that something was actually happening. I started seeing improvement after 4 weeks and now I am over the moon about the results! I am thinking about going back and getting a second treatment since they said I could actually get more than 25% reduction if I do more treatments. I am really excited! Dr. Sorokin has an amazing practice in Cherry Hill, NJ. 5 stars all around!"- B. / RealSelf / Aug 09, 2016

"300cc High Profile Silicone - Cherry Hill, NJ - Dr. Sorokin immediately made me feel at home. He is very soft spoken and confident. Dr. Sorokin has a wonderful office staff , especially Marla and Alisha. Everyone was so comforting and always smiling. They answered every question and concern and always promptly returned my phone calls. He did an absolutely amazing job and I wouldn't recommend anyone else to my family and friends. When I decided to get a consult with Dr. Sorokin I was extremely nervous and I had 2 more consults to follow with 2 other doctors. After my consultation it didn't take much time before I cancelled both appointments and called his office to set up my pre op date. Wonderful place filled with wonderful people!!! - - I have never been bigger than an A cup (even through both pregnancies) but after my second daughter my breasts shrunk even more! I was a 34aa and hated them more than anything. Bathing suits made me look like a 12 year old and it was just time for a change. I went to Dr. Sorokin and immediately fell in love with him and his office staff. I am currently 6 days post op and couldn't be happier with my results. Perfect size and shape, hubby loves them:) and sorry no pics to follow but they look great!!!"- M. / RealSelf / Jul 19, 2016
"Tummy Tuck with Muscle Repair - Cherry Hill, NJ - Dr. Sorokin always made himself available to answer any questions I had. His bedside manner was great, and he called me personally when I got home. - - I do not know where to begin.....I originally went for a breast augmentation, and ended up getting a Tummy Tuck because of how completely comfortable I was with Dr. Sorokin. He makes you feel so very important, and in no way does he pressure you or try to convince you one way or the other. His staff also is very friendly and answered all my questions before, during and after no matter how many times I called. I had did my research, and this office felt right for me. The day of my procedure I was nervous because I have a fear of going under but Alisha was very reassuring, she and Nurse Jenn were amazing. Well, I was surprised to have no pain when I woke up, I said to myself he uses the best pain meds, the ride home was pain free so I expected to be doubled over by the next day.....that was not the case. My pain level never went over a 2 and by the third day I was only taking Tylenol. This was MY experience, I know everyone's pain tolerance is different, but the worst thing you can do is watch YouTube testimonials, please don't make that mistake, they have you thinking their dying!!!! I never felt him taking the drain tube out when the time came. If anyone is thinking about having this procedure, this is the ABSOLUTE BEST PLACE to have this done. Dr. Sorokin is AMAZING( he has the softest hands ever) and so is his staff, they make you feel like family. I look FABULOUS and it's only been a couple weeks so I can't wait to see the "final look" I am beyond pleased with this journey, and couldn't ask for a better result, I got my pretty back. Also, he called me personally to check up on me the evening of my procedure, that's a Dr. that cares about his patients!!!!"- P. / RealSelf / Jul 17, 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.
