I was wary of the marketing hype that many of the new energy based liposuction technologies came with," says Dr. Mauricio. "VASER technology immediately seemed scientifically sound and proved to be the real deal."
Dr. Mauricio has trained and worked with world renowned leaders in the field of dermatology, and is an internationally acclaimed authority in cosmetic dermatology, body contouring, and laser treatments.

"I am excited to add VASER Lipo to my practice's minimally invasive and non-surgical body contouring offerings," adds Dr. Mauricio. "The VASER Lipo procedure minimizes trauma to vessels and nerves and results in significantly easier post-op recovery for patients. It gives me a broad range of contouring capabilities not found in any other system. I'm impressed with how little bruising, swelling and post-op pain patients experience with VASER compared with the older techniques. It is a safe and effective technology that delivers better results with less downtime. Any practice that offers liposuction will benefit from VASER technology."
