If you are frustrated by the resistance of certain body areas to diet and exercise, or if you are healthy and seeking a fast, minimally invasive way to lose stubborn fat deposits, Marcia V. Byrd, M.D., the Medical Director at the co-founder of Byrd Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center in Roswell, Georgia, believes the VASER liposuction procedure may be the solution.

The VASER liposuction system works as a customizable body sculptor to eliminate fat and smooth the skin’s surface, helping you look and feel your best. This minimally-invasive liposuction procedure uses ultrasound waves to selectively break up small or large areas of fat.  Downtime following the procedure is significantly less than traditional liposuction because VASER technology breaks up fat while preserving important tissues, which promotes smooth results and rapid healing.

VASER Liposuction Treatment Areas

Patients have experienced great success after treatment in all of the following areas:

  • Jowls, chin and neck
  • Abs, hips, or love handles
  • Male and female breast
  • Back, buttocks or thighs
  • Arms
  • Knees, calves or ankles
  • Unleash Your Inner Six-Pack


VASER liposuction is performed in-office under local anesthesia. First, the area to be reshaped is filled with a tumescent saline solution. Next, a small probe transmits the ultrasound energy to break up and dislodge fat. A thin tube called a cannula, removes the dislodged fat through a gentle suction process. Dr. Byrd will discuss with you how much fat will be removed during your procedure.  During a single procedure, multiple body areas can be treated. Although there are limits to the amount of fat that can be removed, Dr. Byrd can assist you with your decision about potential areas for sculpting, anticipated results and the recovery process.


Noticeable results vary according to the amount of fat removed, the number of areas treated, and other factors. Many patients report that they see results immediately after the procedure with final results visible three to four months after the procedure. Dr. Byrd can help you establish realistic expectations.

It’s important to note that once you have fat removed, it’s gone. Assuming you maintain a healthy lifestyle of proper diet and exercise, it will not return or migrate. However, because fat is necessary to a healthy body, some essential fat layers in any given area remain untreated. If you experience weight gain or loss after the procedure, it will tend to be proportionately distributed over your entire body. Normal aging changes can also be expected.
