Ultrasound Energy to Eliminate Stubborn Fat
Your body has many types of fat, each of which is uniquely processed and eliminated by your body. If you have tried diet and exercise to remove a few remaining bulges and seen no progress, ultrasonic liposuction with VASERlipo® and LipoSelection® from Graceful Contours might be right for you. Dr. Gerry L. Sotomayor and Dr. Sandra Bohorquez are certified by VASER®, the makers of these two systems, so you will achieve optimum results from your treatments.
What Is VASERlipo® (LipoSelection®, Ultrasonic Liposuction)? How Does It Differ from Traditional Liposuction?
Ultrasonic liposuction uses ultrasound energy to make dramatic improvements through fat removal and contour enhancement. Dr. Gerry L. Sotomayor and Dr. Sandra Bohorquez have chosen two VASER® systems to meet the needs of their patients.
- VASERlipo® is a minimally-invasive precision ultrasound liposuction system that requires only one treatment for optimum results. The treatments can take as little as 1 hour for smaller areas. Although you will see some immediate results, full results occur gradually.
- LipoSelection® liquefies fat cells with ultrasound energy, leaving the surrounding soft tissue, nerves and blood vessels unharmed.
Ultrasonic Liposuction vs. Traditional Liposuction
Ultrasonic liposuction with the VASERlipo® and LipoSelection® systems are advantageous over traditional liposuction because treatment results in:
- Minimal post-treatment symptoms
- Less downtime
- Reduced risk of complications associated with excessive bleeding and tissue trauma
- Precision control over fat removal and contour enhancement
VASER® is an acronym for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. Treatment with the VASERlipo® and LipoSelection® are FDA-approved and clinically proven to safely remove unwanted fat.
How Does VASERlipo® (LipoSelection®, Ultrasonic Liposuction) Work?
Ultrasonic liposuction with the VASERlipo® and LipoSelection® systems works via ultrasound energy that liquefies fat cells. The pulses of ultrasound energy cause the fat cells to burst, turning them into a liquid state. Once the cells are liquefied, they are removed with a cannula. The device is designed to target only fat cells and leave surrounding nerves, tissues and blood vessels intact. The incisions for the treatment only need to be large enough to facilitate the very tiny fiber that contains the ultrasound device, so scarring is minimal and only local anesthesia is required.
What Body Areas Can Be Treated with VASERlipo® (LipoSelection®, Ultrasonic Liposuction)?
Treatment areas for the VASERlipo® and LipoSelection® ultrasonic liposuction systems are:
- Love handles
- Male breasts (gynecomastia)
How Much Fat Can Be Removed? Can Multiple Areas Be Treated at the Same Time?
Although many men and women who consult with Dr. Sotomayor and Dr. Bohorquez at our Graceful Contours practice in Norcross, Georgia, want to eliminate all the fat from their bodies, our liposuction specialists understand that fat plays an important role in both physiological function and body shape. During your consultation, Dr. Sotomayor and Dr. Bohorquez will describe the amount of fat that can be safely removed while enhancing your natural contours. In some cases, they will recommend treating multiple areas during on appointment.

What about Future Weight Gain or Fat Migrating to Other Areas?
Ultrasonic liposuction with VASERlipo® and LipoSelection® safely removes unwanted fat, but the treatments will not prevent new fat development. By following a healthy lifestyle that includes proper eating and exercise, you can prolong the outcomes of the treatments.
