The Difference Between VASER® and SmartLipo™

With all the different innovations with liposuction in Los Angeles and body contouring over the past several years, it can be hard to keep track of the different technologies available. Dr. Berger is well-versed in both types of liposuction and will work with you to choose the best one for you. VASER liposuction and SmartLipo are some of our favorite innovations that we offer here at Rejuvalife Vitality Institute.

What is VASER?

VASER liposuction in Los Angeles is a fat removal procedure that uses ultrasound technology with a special solution to aid in fat cell removal. The ultrasound heats the tissues to “shake” the cells apart and mix in with the saline solution to be easily removed from the body through a cannula. The ultrasound not only helps with the fat removal for maximum control; but also helps the skin to contract during the healing process for a firmer, smoother result.

What is SmartLipo?

SmartLipo is another liposuction technique that combines the basics of traditional liposuction with laser technology to essentially melt away fat cells, allowing Beverly Hills cosmetic surgeon Dr. Berger to carefully shape the treatment area. This version of liposuction is perfect for those who are looking for more detailed results of smaller, more intricate treatment areas. SmartLipo is perfect for areas such as the chin, knees, ankles etc. SmartLipo can also be used to carve out the definition for a more toned look.
