VASER-Assisted Lipoplasty Compared With Suction-Assisted Lipoplasty
A Multi-Center, Prospective, Randomized, Single-Blind, Controlled Clinical Trial Comparing VASER-Assisted Lipoplasty and Suction-Assisted Lipoplasty.

This study is being done to compare two commonly available types of body contouring, VASER-Assisted Lipoplasty (VAL) and Suction-Assisted Lipoplasty (SAL), and to decide if one procedure is preferred by patients and/or surgeons over the other. Participants will have VAL on one side of their body and SAL on the opposite side.

Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment
Masking: Single Blind (Subject)
Healthy
  • Device: Suction-assisted Lipoplasty
    Standard Suction-assisted lipoplasty will be performed on one side of the body to remove excess fat and contour the body in one or more of the following body areas: arm, inner thigh, outer thigh, back
    Other Name: Suction-assisted lipoplasty, Liposuction
  • Device: VASER-assisted lipoplasty
    VASER-assisted lipoplasty will be performed on the opposite side of the body to remove excess fat and contour the body in one or more of the following body areas: arm, inner thigh, outer thigh, back
    Other Name: VAL, VASER, LipoSelection, 3rd Generation UAL
  • Active Comparator: SAL
    Each patient will have Suction Assisted Lipoplasty procedure on one side of the body (this will be considered the control side)
    Intervention: Device: Suction-assisted Lipoplasty
  • Active Comparator: VAL
    Each patient will have VASER- assisted lipoplasty on the opposite side of the body. This will be the comparison side.
    Intervention: Device: VASER-assisted lipoplasty
