Differences between Vaser Liposuction, Laser Liposuction and BodyTite

Naples - Friday 3 Apr 2020 - Dr. Francesco Somma

Liposuction techniques have changed considerably over the years and there are various options for removing excess fat and shaping both male and female bodies. Among the most modern and cutting-edge ones are Vaser Liposuction, Laser Liposuction, and BodyTite.
It is very important to understand the differences between the various techniques in order to effmake an informed choice that is best suited to one's needs, of course with the advice of the cosmetic surgeon one will rely on.

Vaser Liposuction

Vaser liposuction in detail:

  • Improves the precision of fat removal
  • Increases the amount of fat that can be removed
  • Enables precise body contouring even in HD
  • Increases the number of body areas that can be treated
  • Stimulates collagen production making the skin firmer and tighter
  • Reduces recovery time
  • Reduces common side effects such as bruising and swelling
  • Reduces the risk of tissue trauma

Laser Liposuction

Laser-assisted liposuction, also called laser-assisted liposuction or "LPL," as the name suggests, is a liposculpture technique that uses a laser source to melt fat. We have to imagine the laser energy as a beam of light coming out of the probe tip facilitating the breakdown of fat tissue. In detail, this type of liposuction:

  • It is not able to melt large amounts of fat
  • Cannot be used to treat efficaciously large areas such as the abdomen, hips and buttocks
  • Is effective on the neck, arms and legs
  • Is precise 


The Bodytite liposuction technique, like Vaser Liposuction, uses radiofrequency.

However, the most obvious difference with Vaser liposuction is that the energy emitted requires both an internal and external probe, which are less maneuverable than the Vaser probe.

Vaser lipo also causes less tissue trauma, minimizing risks and recovery time. In addition, the heat produced by the Vaser is gentler and more uniform, which means the procedure is also less painful.
