A multicenter, prospective randomized controlled trial in 2012 recently showed that the VASER-assisted liposuction resulted in a statistically significant improvement in skin retraction of 53 percent relative to the traditional regular liposuction (17 percent per liter versus 11 percent per liter, p = 0.003). Moreover, the VASER-assisted liposuction group also resulted in a statistically significant reduction in blood loss of 26 percent relative to the traditional liposuction (p = 0.019 with n = 20 using a two-tailed t test).
Figure 1: Before & After Photos of Abdominal Liposuction (VASER Liposuction 1 Month after the Procedure.) Procedure performed by Houston Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Emmanuel De La Cruz. Note: Skin retraction after VASER Liposuction peaks at 4 months, and thus results will continue to improve 1 month after the procedure.
