is a revolutionary new technique that allows Dr. Shapiro to sculpt away stubborn fat deposits and reveal athletic definition of the muscles for his Scottsdale patients. This procedure is very safe and effective, and a step above the traditional lipo procedure as it targets superficial fat that hides the definition of the muscles. It may be performed on many areas of the body to create a more trim and toned appearance for women, or the six-pack abs and strong arms that every man wants.
VASER Hi-Def Technology
VASER (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) is a specialized, minimally invasive fat removal procedure. This advanced ultrasound technology breaks down fat cells, which may then be removed more easily from the body through suction. Ultrasound- assisted liposuction (UAL) targets only fat cells, leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. This procedure has very minimal downtime and it has become one of the most effective minimally invasive means of removing fat for a highly sculpted appearance.
This technology allows Dr. Shapiro to sculpt both superficial and deep fat so the underlying muscles can appear more distinct for a fitter, trimmer appearance. Results achieved through VHD have never before been possible with such a minimally invasive procedure.
VASER is a remarkable technique that has only been taught to about 80 plastic surgeons in the world. Dr. Shapiro is the first and only plastic surgeon in Arizona trained to perform this exclusive body contouring technique.
VASER for Men
Men tend to accumulate fat in the flanks (or love handles), the abdomen, beneath the chin and in the breasts, which is a condition in men known as gynecomastia. Traditional lipo can reduce volume, but VASER-assisted body sculpting is capable of targeting the superficial fat deposits to reveal the contours and definition of the muscle underneath. This procedure can be an excellent option for men who have exercise and diet-resistant fat deposits, who are moderately overweight or those who have spent many hours exercising with unsuccessful results. If you have dreamed of chiseled pecs or six-pack abs, Dr. Shapiro’s ultrasound lipo in Scottsdale can help you achieve your goals.
VASER for Women
Women are genetically predisposed to collect fat deposits under the arms. VASER is an effective alternative to surgical brachioplasty for men women to eliminate “bat wings” to produce toned and athletic arms. This procedure can also target other bothersome areas for women, including “muffin tops,” the abdomen, the breasts, buttocks, thighs and the waistline. Hi-Def removes these stubborn fat deposits and tightens skin to reveal more athletic definition and a more slender silhouette.
VASER Liposuction for Arms
This procedure can create the defined biceps, triceps and shoulders that define the arms of a strong and attractive man. For women, this procedure can help sculpt arms that are fit and toned, and free of any hanging skin, fat or the dreaded “bat wings.”
VASER Lipo for the Chest
Ultrasound-assisted liposculpture of the chest can sculpt pectoral muscles or breasts in a way that traditional body sculpting cannot. This procedure optimizes the volume of the chest while defining the muscles and sculpting away excess fat deposits. For men, this can eliminate gynecomastia (male breasts) and create a tight, muscular appearance. This is often combined with fat transfer to add additional tissue beneath, in or above the pectoralis muscle without the use of implants. For women, fat tends to accumulate beneath the arms and on the sides of the breasts, which widens the chest. Simply removing these fat deposits, even without fat transfer, can make the breasts appear a half- or full-cup size larger.
VASER for the Posterior Torso
The posterior torso is comprised of the back, the waistline, the thighs and the buttocks. Both men and women can develop a “muffin top” or rolls of fat that bulge beneath clothing or bra straps. Dr. Shapiro performs VASER Hi-Def in Scottsdale to sculpt away bulging bottoms and muffin tops, taper a waistline into an hourglass or “V,” or elongate the back for a more balanced contour.
