Precision Body Contouring

Dr. Moreano now offers Vaser liposculpture a new, minimally invasive approach to body sculpting and contouring in his Jackson Heights, Queens, NY office. If you want quality liposuction with a more comfortable recovery process, get VASER liposculpture in NYC.

What Is Vaser Liposculpture?

If you’ve struggled with weight gain, and exercise and diet just haven’t given you the dramatic transformation you’d like, VASERlipo™ can help. VASERlipo uses a precise, minimally invasive liposuction technology that produces eye-catching results in just one procedure without the discomfort and long recovery times of typical liposuction treatments. The procedure is tissue-selective, targeting fat while protecting other tissues from damage. It’s powerful enough to eliminate substantial areas of fat but gentle enough to treat delicate areas such as the neck and arms. VASERlipo is clinically proven to produce even results in treated areas, leaving your skin smooth and your body beautiful. VASER HIGH DEFINITION LIPOSCULPTURE (VASER Hi Def®)can give you the athletic body look you have always desired, unleashing your inner ‘six-pack”.

Am I a Good Candidate?

The best candidates for Vaser liposculpture are individuals who are frustrated by the inability of particular body parts to respond to diet and exercise. You may be a good candidate for Vaser liposculpture if you are healthy and are looking for a quick way to get rid of your extra fat deposits.

You may be an ideal candidate for the procedure if you do not smoke and do not suffer from any bleeding disorders. Vaser liposculpture works best for those who want to target fat deposits in order to show the muscle tone under them.

Vaser liposculpture is a great treatment for men and women who have a high degree of skin elasticity. Because weight changes might negatively affect results, the candidate must be at or near their goal weight for the procedure to work. The technique is not recommended for anyone who has been unable to maintain a healthy weight for at least six months.

Vaser Liposculpture Consultation

You need a consultation with Dr. Moreano to determine if Vaser liposculpture is right for you. He will ask you about your desired goals, examine the treatment areas, and tell you if you are an ideal candidate for the procedure.

Dr. Moreano will consider your health, age, medical history, and other factors that may affect the procedure’s effectiveness. Don’t hesitate to ask questions and bring up concerns during the process. Be upfront about your current medications, and listen to the doctor’s pre- and post-procedure instructions.

The Vaser Liposculpture Procedure

If the treatment region is tiny, a local anesthetic with mild sedation can be employed. A general anesthetic may be recommended if larger areas of the body are being treated.

During the Vaser liposculpture procedure, a tumescent solution is injected into the target area to assist in numbing the area and to shorten the blood vessels. The purpose of this is to minimize blood loss and reduce bruising. This solution wets and fills the treatment region, making it easier for the VASERlipo System’s ultrasonic energy to break up fatty tissue.

The procedure is used to remove fat and sculpt areas like the arms, chin and neck, chest, hips and thighs, upper back, buttocks, waistline, and stomach.

A small probe that uses sound energy breaks apart the targeted fatty tissue while sparing other vital tissues. Finally, the liquid fat is suctioned out of the body.

The Vaser liposculpture procedure typically takes one to several hours, depending on the extent of your treatment. You will be transported to a recovery area after the procedure to allow the effects of the sedative or anesthetic to wear off.

The Results

Many patients see an instant difference after Vaser liposculpture. However, to varying degrees, swelling will obscure it at first. When the inflammation has subsided, the results will be visible after 2 to 3 months, and your skin will have tightened completely over the area by 6 months.

Weight gain can affect your results, so if you want your results to last, you should attempt to live a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet and regular exercise.


The area treated, as well as your overall health and well-being, will determine how quickly you recover after Vaser liposculpture. Dr. Moreano will create a personalized plan of aftercare, massage, and rehabilitation to help you get back on your feet.

To allow your body to recover from the surgery and begin the healing process, you should take at least two to five days off work and other everyday activities. After surgery, some people may experience discomfort for up to a week.

You might be advised to take it easy before resuming your regular exercise routine. It will also help your body recover if you avoid heavy lifting, swimming, strenuous activities, and contact sports for two to three weeks after the procedure.

The Cost of Vaser Liposculpture

The cost of Vaser liposculpture is not covered by insurance because it is classified as an elective cosmetic procedure. During the consultation, ask Dr. Moreano about the expected price of the treatment and any additional costs, such as hospital fees, anesthesia costs, prescribed medications, and post-surgery appointments.

I had a Vaser lipo done by Dr Moreano more than 8 momths ago and I am totally happy with my result. The surgery removed all my extra fat and even comtracted my extra skin. I had gone to see ankther surgeon before who wanted to cut my belly and do a tummy tuck. I am very happy I chose my surgery with Dr moreano because he understood that I wanted to avoid a permanent scar Dr Moreano was able to sculpt my body to such a degree that I now for the first time in my life I have curves!!!! He explained all the procedure in detail and his staff was very knowledgable and ffriendly. I did not experience much pain with the procedure. He did prescribed painkillers but I never needed them.
