Vaser Liposuction

Your thyroid gland is down on the neck, away from the chin area so unless they doctor is going way down your neck, your thyroid should be safe.  I have not heard of any cancer associated with Vaser, Laser, or liposuction.  If you are concerned, don’t have the procedure done.

Vaser and thyroid

Usually liposuction of the face if confined to the upper half of the  neck and sometimes doctors will treat the jowls with this. It is unlikely that it would have any effect on the Thyroid.
