Thermal injuries from liposuction
It does not cause a direct thermal energy injury.
The serious skin injury that can happen is the destruction of the fine network of small blood vessels at the base of the skin.
It's very operator-dependent as is the case with all liposuction techniques.
VASER can give a very nice results, as can regular tumescent liposuction.
The talent and experience of the surgeon is paramount.
Consult with an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon to figure out your options.

All Liposuction Is Tumescent
It’s use of ultrasonic waves allow for a much gentler extraction of fat cells than traditional methods at the same time preserving lots of the small nerves, blood cells and connective tissue. In addition, the new probes allow for precise sculpting and incredible definition results when in the right hands for patients.
Make sure to seek out a highly qualified VASER liposuction doctor. VASER doctors all use the same tools (similar to artists with a set of brushes), but only an experienced and highly trained VASER plastic surgeons can deliver you the optimum results you deserve.
Tumescent is the anesthesia whether you’re using VASER or suction assisted lipoplasty. Suction assisted lipoplasty rips the connective tissue while sucking out the fat cells which can make for a more traumatic and bloodier procedure. VASER (used properly by a trained plastic surgeon) leaves you at an extremely low risk for any skin or burn issues.
It’s also less traumatic to the connective tissues. The real question is does your surgeon have a VASER? VASER has been very safe and effective across the world. Properly used the risk of skin burns should be almost 0.
Best of luck,
