SmartLipo vs. Vaser Liposuction: What’s the Difference?

When it comes to getting the body you’ve always wanted, diet and exercise definitely make a difference.

But for truly stubborn fat, you may need a little extra help in the form of body contouring treatments.

Forget old-school liposuction surgery. Today’s body contouring treatments use a variety of technologies (including high-powered lasers and ultrasound energy) to break down fat tissue and get a leaner, more contoured body.

Two of those technologies – SmartLipo and Vaser Liposuction – promise to melt away fat without extensive recovery. But what are the differences between SmartLipo vs. Vaser Liposuction? How do you know which one is right for you?

What Is SmartLipo?

SmartLipo is an innovative new procedure that uses a high-powered laser to break down fat tissue in the targeted treatment area. 

Unlike traditional liposuction – which requires the plastic surgeon to manually break up fat tissue with a cannula – SmartLipo is much more gentle, as it liquifies fat tissue before it’s removed. 

There’s no general anesthesia required, plus there’s not as much bruising and swelling as with traditional liposuction.

What is Vaser Liposuction?

Vaser Liposuction is an exciting treatment that uses ultrasound energy to break up fat tissue within a treatment area. The ultrasound energy is emitted through a small cannula, which is placed directly at the treatment site. This energy emulsifies the fat, making it much easier to remove without causing significant damage to surrounding healthy tissue.

Like with SmartLipo, Vaser Liposuction doesn’t require general anesthesia and has a shorter recovery period than with traditional liposuction surgery.
