Tune In: VASER Shape on Entertainment Tonight

Could it be? A magic wand that actually melts away fat? That’s what some are claiming. VASER Shape is a new procedure on the market, scoring a 75% Worth It Rating among consumers, and has been a hot topic as of late. In our reviews, positive feedback has included, “I am looking and feeling better everyday!” and “The procedure itself was a snap!” On Entertainment Tonight, Los Angeles-based plastic surgeon, Dr. Peter Fodor shows off how the $1,650 procedure fights the battle against the bulge.


Despite the hype, not everyone’s experience has been as positive as the picture this segment paints. A few of RealSelf’s community members have tried it out and are less than satisfied with the results:

• “My butt looks droopy, my skin looks like it has major ripples/cellulite…I look horrible. I was told give it some time for the skin to retract. I don't see that happening. And I jiggle worse than before and in places it was fine prior to the lipo. I have been crying non stop.” –Debbie8764

• “I am left with a visible lump at the edge of the area done on my right upper abdomen. I also have a protuberant horizontal lump along my left hip/outer thigh. Neither outer thigh has any improvement in contour or appearance...they may be a bit smaller; but I cannot tell. I am left with a small "banana roll" beneath my right buttock which I feel whenever I walk. Definitely no noticeable skin tightening in any area done.” -HS


This just goes to show, with any procedure, research is key to make sure expectations match results, and that you’re in the hands of a qualified doctor.

If you’ve had VASER Shape, what were your results? Or do you think this sounds too good to be true? Let us know in the comments below!

Do you realize the 83% positive rating is for Vaser 'Liposuction' and not Vaser Shape. Vaser Shape has 9 reviews and a 73% positive rating. Your link is pointing at liposuction and your article on on a noninvasive device.
