About VASER Liposuction
VASER is an acronym for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. This high-tech liposuction technique offers a gentler alternative to other procedures. The technology is truly an art form as it streamlines the approach to remove fat and create finer lines. VASER liposuction procedure contains ultrasound energy waves to break up unwanted fat cells. It limits the number of incisions to the body while preparing the fat for easy removal. The high-frequency waves also promote skin tightening to make your abdominals look like a sculpture carved by Michaelangelo.
When the unwanted fat is eliminated, Dr. Bonillas will craft your abdominals into attractive contours. You deserve to love the way you look. If you feel that you have done all that you could by going to the gym and eating right and still haven’t gotten the results you want then a VASER Liposuction may be a good solution for you. It can deliver an optimized, sculpted body for years to come. Contact our friendly staff for a personal consultation.

Patients wanting to ditch the flab and show off some abs would benefit greatly from a VASER treatment. It is important to know, however, to have realistic expectations for the procedure. It is for healthy individuals who are at or near their ideal weight. If your weight loss journey is in progress, we recommend that you continue that before seeking treatment. Ideal candidates should also:
- Maintain a healthy lifestyle
- Have good skin elasticity
- Free of infections
Schedule a consultation with us to learn more about how the procedure can sculpt better abdominals that you can show off.
Your first step into a transformed body will start with a friendly chat. During your consultation, Dr. Bonillas will lend his curious ear to better understand your personal goals and your ideal body aesthetic. He chose plastic surgery as his profession because he sees limitless potential in every patient. He truly cares about every person who comes into our office. Fluent in English and Spanish, Dr. Bonillas builds a rapport with everyone by connecting with them openly about their situation and expectations.
When he sits down with you, he will ask some questions about your medical history and current medication intake. Then he will perform a physical examination of your abdominals to determine if VASER is right for you! Once a customized plan is created for you, our Scottsdale Plastics team will provide you with detailed instructions on how to prepare for your treatment. Contact us to begin your transformation today or call us directly at (480) 245-6380 to speak with a friendly representative.
Your appointment will not need much preparation but it is important to do a few things beforehand to ensure a streamlined experience. We advise patients to avoid taking certain blood-thinning medications such as ibuprofen two weeks before their treatment. Please refrain from smoking and drinking alcohol a few days before. You may be required to stop eating and drinking entirely up to eight hours before the procedure. Our staff will go over how to prepare for VASER Lipo during your consultation.
VASER was designed for your comfort in mind. We here at Scottsdale Plastics take your comfort seriously. Once we finalized paperwork and other logistics, you will rest peacefully to ensure that you are cozy. After Dr. Bonillas gracefully makes small incisions, he will target your unwanted fat stores with a small cannula tube.  The fat located just under the subdermal plane will start to break away when the VASER system emits sonic pulses. These ultrasound frequencies make the removal of the fat easier as the unwanted fat cells are now liquidated and more malleable.  They are removed through the same cannula. The entire process should take about two hours to complete.
VASER patients who are already fit are able to enjoy envious six-pack abs almost immediately after their treatment. But be patient! Full effects may not be seen until after 2-3 months when swelling and soreness subsides.  Most people can return to work and resume normal activities within a few days. Dr. Bonillas may give you a compression garment to wear for the first two days of recovery to ensure the integrity of the results. As your body starts to adapt to its new shape, you can show off your stunning results!
Be prepared to be happy again! The long-lasting results from the VASER Liposuction treatment have patients enjoying a head-turning body with well-defined abdominals. Your results are long-lasting because the fat cells in the treatment areas are removed. Adult fat cells do not regrow. Unfortunately, neighboring fat cells do have the ability to expand as the result of weight fluctuations and aging. Just remember, as long as you maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, you can prolong the effects of a better defined midsection.
The cost of your treatment is a customized for the procedure and will depend on the extent of your case. All details, including cost, will be given during our initial consultation. Scottsdale Plastics makes it easy for you to pay for our treatments. We accept cash, personal checks, and most major credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover. There are also easy financing options available at your convenience. They offer low monthly payments and fit nicely into anyone’s budget. In many cases, there is no down payment is needed
Corresponding & Complementary Procedures
Say goodbye to fat for good! Scottsdale Plastic offers many body contouring procedures that target multiple areas of the body. We know that massive weight loss, aging, and pregnancy can all take a toll on our physical appearance.
You may also want to consider eliminating fat with a LocoLipo, a state-of-the-art liposuction technique. Short for ‘local anesthesia’ this other method seeks to provide better contours by targeting areas with anesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety.
Like VASER, this innovative method uses ultrasound imaging and lasers that remove localized areas of fat from the body through small surgical cannulas.
Does liposuction permanently remove fat?
Liposuction removes fat cells from the body. Once they’re removed, they won’t come back. Weight fluctuations can happen but fat won’t accumulate in the same way as it used to as your newly contoured body will distribute the fat more evenly.
How many treatments of VASER liposuction will I need?
The Vaser lipo procedure is usually done in one session. For extensive treatments or to target more areas, then patients may go for multiple sessions. They are usually split into two sessions spaced one to six weeks apart.
What is the difference between liposuction and VASER liposuction?
Traditional liposuction differs as it only targets the deep layers of fat. VASER, on the other hand, targets both deep and superficial layers of fat without destroying connective tissue. Not to mention it is much faster and requires less downtime.
