The VASER® system allows Dr. Dennis Hurwitz to reshape patients' bodies with minimally invasive techniques. This ultrasound system can be used at Hurwitz Center for Plastic Surgery to remove fat using VASERlipo®, or in the VASERshape® system to smooth bulges. Additionally, we also provide VASERsmooth® for cellulite treatment.
We've just incorporated in my practice the most advanced, cutting edge
technology in liposuction surgery. It's called the VASER. The VASER is an
ultrasound system that allows us to more safely and gently remove all the
fat we wish to and sculpture the body in ways unimaginable in the past. So
we're getting incredible results not only in our oversized people, but
people who have just a little bit of bulges here and there. And with the
VASER, we can incredibly reshape them in a feminine form or a more muscular
form for the men.
The VASER comes in actually three packages. I'm referring to VASERlipo,
where we have minimally invasive surgery, small incisions, and remove the
fat, that way leaving the native collagen to contract down so the skin
shapes beautifully. But we also have VASERshape, which is a noninvasive
external approach which allows small bulges to be smoothed down evenly. And
finally we have VASERsmooth, the latest technology for the permanent
removal of cellulite.
There are all types of body shapes that are well suited for advanced
liposculpture. Even thin people with small bulges can get incredibly
remarkable results. And sometimes we take fat from one area and put it to
another, like the upper breast or the buttock area. But overweight people
that are not really obese, they can make excellent candidates as I
sculpture them the ideal feminine or masculine form.
At its simplest level, body sculpturing is liposuction of areas to remove
fat and maybe add some fat. But more often, it's a complex interplay of
body contouring excisional surgery with liposculpture. So we may take a
tummy tuck, but we don't stop there. We'll thin down the flanks, the waist,
the hips. We'll add some fat. It's all about sculpturing the best body we
Recovery after surgery is a variable thing, but by and large, we've been
very pleased that our patients with VASER, even with some like a tummy
tuck, recover incredibly quickly. With just a few days, most of the pain is
gone. And within a week, they return to most all their usual activities
except for vigorous exercise. It does take about six weeks before they can
resume all their activities. But again, VASER and a skillful use is much less
painful and disabling than this surgery has been in the past.
