Skin Retraction After VASER Liposuction

A recent randomized clinical trial had shown that the VASER liposuction produced clinical significant skin retraction. 

  • "Regarding skin retraction, the VASER-assisted lipoplasty-treated side resulted in a statistically significant improvement in skin retraction of 53 percent relative to suction-assisted lipoplasty (17 percent per liter versus 11 percent per liter, p = 0.003) with 33 paired sites using a two-tailed t test. "
