What is Vaser Lipo?
Vaser Liposuction is Dr. Ahmed’s preferred means of body contouring and it is the manner by which he achieves 360 lipo’s all-encompassing results. It is an FDA-cleared, minimally-invasive body sculpting procedure that utilizes ultrasound waves to help reduce fat and smooth the skin’s surface without damaging the surrounding tissue. Vaser, an acronym for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance, is a liposuction tool that delivers ultrasound energy in pulses through a specially designed probe.
Vaser targets layers of fat around your muscles, allowing the fat cells to be liquefied and removed from the body. Vaser helps to shape and contour your body, providing definition and a slimmer profile at the front, back and sides. Because of its precision, Vaser delivers three dimensions of perfection, so your 360 Liposuction will be comprehensive and complete.
There are a plethora of benefits patients can experience when they opt for 360-Degree Liposuction for their body sculpting needs.

Candidates for 360 Lipo are healthy adults who are within about 30% of their ideal body weight and have stubborn pockets of fat under their skin that keeps their ideal shape at bay. They have good skin tone and elasticity at the treatment site. While 360-Degree Liposuction can deliver amazing results, it is important for those considering the procedure to have realistic expectations.
Your Private Consultation at Las Vegas Body Sculpting
A private meeting with Dr. Ahmed is the first step in your 360-degree journey. During this consultation, you will share your body contouring goals, medical and health history, and any questions you may have about the procedure. Dr. Ahmed will discuss the 360 Lipo, in detail, being sure that you understand the process. From there, the doctor will perform a physical examination. After this thorough assessment, Dr. Ahmed qualifies your candidacy for surgery.
In order to best help you prepare for surgery, Dr. Ahmed will provide you with specific instructions during your consultation and pre-operative appointment. While each 360 Lipo patient will have unique needs, there are some general directives you must be sure to follow before surgery.
Smoking and Drinking
You will need to stop smoking, vaping, and drinking alcohol at least one month before your procedure.
Dr. Ahmed will need to know about your medication regimen during your consultation. At this time, he may provide directions on stopping or altering your medications. You will need to stop taking medicines that thin your blood. These include aspirin, ibuprofen, supplements, and prescription blood thinners.
You will need to appoint a trusted adult to drive you home after your procedure. This person should be able to stay with you for at least 24 hours.
Dr. Ahmed may provide you with prescriptions that should be filled prior to your surgery day so you have them on hand when you need them.
On the day of your procedure, Dr. Ahmed will meet with you to review your treatment plan. He will use a felt tip marker to highlight the incision sites, areas of focus, and anatomical landmarks.
After you are in the operating room, you will be given either general anesthesia or a local anesthesia with IV sedation to keep you comfortable during the procedure. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, Dr. Ahmed will make small incisions in the treatment area. From there, the doctor will insert a thin, hollow tube, called a cannula, under your skin. The cannula will distribute tumescent fluid in the area. Tumescent fluid consists of epinephrine to help minimize bleeding and bruising, a local anesthetic to numb the area, and a sterile saline solution.
Dr. Ahmed will then utilize the cannula to break up the fat deposits. At this time, the cannula will emit the targeted ultrasound waves to the treatment area, loosening and liquifying the fat cells making it easier to extract. Once the fat is adequately softened, Dr. Ahmed will use the cannula to remove the fat through gentle suction. He will take time to contour your body to your specifications, slimming and shaping the treatment area, leaving you with a more toned, attractive contour in as little as one hour.
After the procedure, your body will be sore and swollen. You may be expected to wear a compression garment to aid in mitigating swelling and help your body conform to its new contours. Depending on the area(s) treated with 360-Degree Liposuction, there may be plastic drains placed in the incisions to remove excess fluid build-up from under your skin.
Because the Vaser technique is more gentle on the body than traditional liposuction, you may be able to return to work in as little as a week! More strenuous activity may be resumed after two to three weeks, post-op. Dr. Ahmed will consult with you on an individual basis to determine the best plan for your recovery.
You will be able to enjoy a slimmer, smoother, more toned appearance. Your natural-looking, long-lasting results will be visual after four to six months once residual swelling subsides.
The results of your 360 Liposuction will be immediately apparent! Although you will experience some swelling of the treatment area for some time, the unsightly pockets of fat will be gone for good! As you continue to heal, your new shape will improve and emerge!
Dr. Ahmed prides himself on providing incomparable care, service and results. His patients have voiced their appreciation and gushed about how great they look and feel. Take a look at their positive reviews.
How Much Does 360 Liposuction Cost In Las Vegas?
The cost of the procedure varies with each patient based on the area treated and the extent of the surgery. Additionally, any other procedures performed during the same appointment are considered as part of the cost. We can discuss your associated costs with you during your consultation.
Is 360-Degree Liposuction permanent?
At puberty, you will have a certain number of fat cells in your body. This number does not fluctuate much, if at all, as you get older. When you gain weight, the fat cells swell and when you lose weight the cells shrink. With liposuction, targeted fat cells are physically removed from your body! And since fat cells do not regrow, your new contours are long-lasting! As long as you maintain a stable weight, you can expect your slimmer figure to endure.
Am I a candidate for 360 Liposuction?
The only way to determine your candidacy for 360 Lipo and any other procedure at Las Vegas Body Sculpting is to attend a consultation with Dr. Ahmed himself. During this appointment, he will assess your goals, anatomy and history in order to determine if liposuction is right for you. Generally, ideal candidates are healthy adults who wish to get rid of the extra bulk and flab. They are close to their ideal weight and desire a more taut profile.
