At Modern Surgical Arts of Denver, our patients (both women and men) benefit from the different options for liposuction and body contouring because we combine the most recent techniques and medical devices to achieve the best aesthetic results.
One of the proven medical devices we use during advanced liposuction and sculpting is called VASER (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance), which “selectively” removes fat deposits and alters the shape and contours of the body.
Liposuction in its simplest form is a cosmetic procedure that removes fat deposits from under your skin. Traditional liposuction used to involve removal of fat from major areas of concern such as the abdomen, waist and thighs in order to reduce the circumference of the patient’s trouble area. In the 1980s and 1990s pioneers developed liposuction techniques that could be performed in a predictable and safe manner in an outpatient setting.
Over the next decade, liposuction evolved into the idea of “body-sculpting”. Surgeons were not only removing fat but they were also developing the underlying anatomy of the patient’s figure. Many surgeons from around the world contributed to develop and advance the techniques in body-sculpting with liposuction. Since the early 2000’s several medical devices have been combined with these liposuction techniques in order to achieve improved results.
Advanced Liposuction – Hi-Definition Lipo-sculpting
Modern techniques in body contouring involve combining several concepts such as removal of fat deposits from different layers under the skin, strategic fat removal for defining the muscle anatomy and promoting skin tightening in the area of treatment.
This philosophy treats the area of concern in a comprehensive fashion.
VASER Liposuction highlights:
- Ability to remove high volumes of fat with less blood loss
- Removal of superficial fat droplets closer to the skin, revealing more body definition
- Stimulation of the underlying skin dermis, resulting in potential skin tightening
- Useful in cases for revision liposuction or coolsculpting with areas of fibrous tissue or scarring
VASER is not intended as a weight loss solution, but rather is used to contour the body. It is ideal for people who are trying to spot-treat fat deposits and reveal muscle tone underneath. It can be performed on many parts of the body.

The VASER Liposuction Difference
All liposuction techniques operate on the same basic premise: fat deposits are broken apart and removed from the body via suction. But VASER liposuction allows the surgeon to be both gentler and more precise, which allows the fat to be removed without damaging other adjacent tissues. Dr. Dastoury has extensive training in this advanced technique. He has a reputation for body sculpting using VASER liposuction to correct revision cases or irregular scarring caused by coolsculpting devices.
Advantages of VASER Liposuction
VASER liposuction is often preferable to other liposuction techniques because it causes less pain, swelling, and downtime than the traditional technique, which uses manual movements to break up fat deposits and can result in more bruising.
Another benefit of VASER liposuction is that the fat cells that are removed can be harvested and transferred anywhere in the body to provide volume enhancement. Dr. Dastoury has transferred fat stem cells into the face (for facial rejuvenation) or gluteal region (for buttock augmentation commonly known as the BBL procedure).
VASER Liposuction Considerations
Some of the drawbacks of VASER include swelling that can last for up to 3-6 months, and you may not see the final results you want until the swelling subsides. Also, a compression garment is necessary while you recover, which has to be worn for 4-6 weeks. Finally, as with all liposuction techniques, if you gain weight after your procedure, the fat cells that remain can expand. So keeping up your diet and exercise routine is very important.
The Modern Surgical Arts of Denver approach
At Modern Surgical Arts of Denver, we strive to provide the best aesthetic results for our patients by combining the latest technology with the most advanced technique within our on-site accreditation surgery center . Dr. Kamran Dastoury attained his knowledge and training in VASER liposuction while during his one year cosmetic surgery fellowship in Southern California through the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery. He believes in a comprehensive approach to liposuction by optimizing the patient’s medical health, body weight, and nutrition before and after the procedure.
An Organic Approach to Healing
Our patients also appreciate Dr. Dastoury‘s holistic approach to healing with his organic supplement regimen, which includes herbal anti-inflammatory supplements and vitamins strategically delivered in forms such as tablets, topical creams, and tea.
Post- Opertative Lymph Massages
Accelerated healing with lymphedema massages is just what the doctor ordered at Modern Surgical Arts of Denver.
Dr. Dastoury utilizes routine post-operative lymphatic drainage massages for patients scheduled as part of our patients healing process within our facility. These sessions are performed by our licensed massage therapist, who has over 1500 hours of training and 17 years of experience, 12 of them specifically taking care of post-VASER liposuction. Lymphatic drainage massages is a tremendous help to a patient’s recovery because it decreases the swelling and post-operative discomfort, allowing for a faster and more comfortable recovery process.
Our patients appreciate our comprehensive approach because it places their aesthetic desires, post-operative needs and long term results at the center of our focus.
