Liposuction in Los Angeles, CAUsing Advanced techniques and technologies offering minimal downtime and NO General Anesthesia!

Liposuction is your ideal procedure to contour your body by removing any unwanted fat from your treated areas. What most people don’t know is that liposuction isn’t as cut-and-dry as everyone thinks it is. Dr. Andre Berger at Rejuvalife Vitality Institute is always offering the most innovating and advanced techniques in the beauty industry to give patients their desired results with minimal downtime and recovery that is typically associated with traditional plastic surgery. Today, we wanted to go over each of our liposuction treatments, the differences between them all and each of their unique benefits.

VASER Liposuction

VASER liposuction actually stands for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance, which is really just a fancy way of saying that this technique uses ultrasound technology to help break down fat during your liposuction procedure. VASER has the reputation of being a more controlled and gentle liposuction procedure, with the ultrasound technology aiding in breaking down the fatty tissue in your treated area for more defined results and a more gentle procedure. Benefits of VASER liposuction include:

  • Uses ultrasound technology to break down fat before removal.
  • Is typically performed under local anesthesia and sedation.
  • A defined, sculpted appearance following treatment.

Smartlipo™

Smartlipo™ is actually a form of laser liposuction. Unlike traditional liposuction treatments that remove fat with a vacuum-powered system, the laser liposuction with Smartlipo™ uses a thin tube containing a laser fiber to melt unwanted fat while simultaneously tightening the skin in your desired treated area. Many patients prefer to undergo Smartlipo™ around their face, neck and jawline, as it’s a minimally invasive treatment that can be done under local anesthetic to contour and fine-tune your most delicate features. Benefits of Smartlipo™ include:

  • Uses laser technology to melt fat and tighten skin in the treated area.
  • Is typically performed under local anesthesia without IV sedation.
  • Many patients see results after just one treatment.

Body Jet™ Liposuction

Body Jet™ liposuction is a water-assisted liposuction procedure. This means controlled, highly concentrated pulses of water are applied to help dislodge fat in your desired treated area for easier fat removal. Dr. Berger typically uses Body Jet™ liposuction during body fat transfer procedures, as it helps to make the fat removal process easier without damaging the harvested fat cells. Benefits of Body Jet™ liposuction include:

  • Uses a concentrated and controlled water stream to dislodge fat for removal.
  • Is typically performed under local anesthesia and does not require IV sedation.
  • Can aid in harvesting healthy fat cells for body fat transfer.

Lipo 360

Lipo 360 is a unique liposuction procedure in that it treats the entire abdominal area to create the ultimate contoured appearance. Also called a circumferential procedure, Lipo 360 targets the upper and lower abdomen, the flanks, the waist, and sometimes the mid- to lower-back. Dr. Berger also typically adds in plasma technology to help tighten the skin around your midsection during your lipo360 procedure to ensure you get your desired contoured results.

  • Provides an even and natural-looking contour around the entire midsection.
  • Uses VASER liposuction technology to enhance fat removal.
  • May be combined with plasma technology to tighten skin simultaneously.
