Dr. LoVerme learned the art of lipoplasty or liposuction in 1983 when it was first brought to the United States from Europe. When patients visit him in New Jersey, he uses his vast experience in developing a customized plan. Now we have improved technology which translates into better results, as well as new imaging tools such as Vectra 3D photography and computer manipulation to let you see your “after” before surgery.
Liposuction body sculpting or suction-assisted Lipoplasty (SAL) has become one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures performed in the US. Proven safety, minimal scarring and outstanding results have made it the preferred method for removing fat from the hips, thighs, abdomen, and midriff, as well as areas of the neck and arms. Liposuction is not an alternative to weight reduction, but can be very effective in removing fat from areas that do not respond to diet and exercise programs.
Suction-assisted lipectomy is performed under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation. A narrow tube (cannula) is inserted through a small incision made in an inconspicuous place. Dr. LoVerme then manipulates the cannula, which is connected to a vacuum, breaking up fatty areas and suctioning out the fat.

Ultrasonic-Assisted Liposuction (UAL)
Ultrasonic assisted liposuction is a technique we use at our New Jersey and New York area center that requires the use of a special cannula that produces ultrasonic energy. As it passes through the areas of fat, the energy explodes the walls of the fat cells, liquefying the fat. The fat is then removed with the traditional liposuction technique.
UAL has been shown to improve the ease and effectiveness of liposuction in fibrous areas of the body, such as the upper back or the enlarged male breast. It is also commonly used in secondary procedures, when enhanced precision is needed. In general, UAL takes longer to perform than traditional liposuction.
The LipoSelection® by VASER Difference
LipoSelection® by VASER is the gentle, effective answer to concerns regarding the seemingly rough nature of liposuction. No more does Dr LoVerme need to rely on the relatively harsh techniques traditional liposuction employs for targeting larger fat deposits. With LipoSelection®, Dr. Paul LoVerme can focus on refining select areas and produce smoother results immediately. The healing process and bruising is decreased substantially too, allowing most patients to return to their daily life in just a couple of days.
LipoSelection® is a revolutionary fat removal procedure based on established principles of ultrasound technology. Ultrasound has been used for years to monitor pre-natal development, to ensure proper diagnosis of health issues, and more recently, to clean teeth. Now this same technology is used to safely trim unwanted bulges.
Hi Def VASER Liposculpture
Plastic Surgery is a combination of Art and Science. Nowhere is this more evident than in VASER High Definition contouring. Aerobic exercise and weight lifting can result in well developed muscles, but often the overlying fat can obscure definition and soften one’s appearance. Sara Simlet, in Anatomy For the Artist, states that “it is the lack of body fat, not increased muscularity, that gives definition to muscles seen through the skin”. VASER Hi Def Liposculpture melds technology wit the surgeon’s technique to create dramatic effects.
Dr. LoVerme possesses the artistic sense, anatomic knowledge, advanced training, surgical skill and VASER experience to produce precise results in both men and women. Liposculpture technique removes fat cells in areas of excess and uses fat injections to add fat where it is needed.
During the procedure, Dr. LoVerme hides a tiny incision in the area of concern, and inserts a thin device that emits ultrasonic waves that are tuned specifically for this purpose. The energy from these sound waves breaks down the structure of fat cells into liquid form, which can then be removed through a small cannula or tube. The precision of this technique is so fine that we can target sensitive areas such as the face and neck, as well as arms, back, hips, abs, and legs. Important tissues such as nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue remain virtually undisturbed resulting in a beautiful, smooth surface.
