VASER Hi Def in Denver

At Millard Plastic Surgery in Denver, you are guaranteed to receive top-quality results from a top-quality surgeon. Dr. Millard has a deep understanding of the fat structures of the leg, which allows him to tailor VASER Hi Def Liposuction at Millard Plastic Surgery to the unique physiology of every patient. Unlike some surgeons, Dr. Millard targets all pockets of visible fat to ensure results are as smooth and toned as possible!

Dr. John Millard was the first physician to perform Hi Def Liposuction in the United States. Thanks to his innovations with the VASER aspirator probe, the procedure is safer, more effective, and more delicate than ever.

Thanks to Dr. Millard’s innovation with the VASER probe, the ultrasound time required to break up fat is much shorter. This reduces bruising and swelling, ensuring a shorter, more comfortable recovery. Some surgeons tout the benefits of eliminating fat with laser energy, but the high heat can damage surrounding tissues. VASER safely breaks down fat by applying ultrasound energy to the tumescent fluid within the body. The air bubbles in the fluid will expand and contract, safely and gently breaking down the stubborn fat.

Your safety and comfort are Dr. Millard’s number one priority.

Once Dr. Millard breaks up the stubborn fat with the VASER ultrasound cannula, he will carefully extract the dislodged fat. Dr. Millard will sculpt the inner and outer thighs, knees, calves, and ankles as he removes unwanted fat. Patients will notice an improvement in both the size and contour of their legs within days of their procedure. VASER Hi Def Liposuction has additionally shown to tighten skin.

For patients interested in Fat Grafting, VASER ultrasound is an ideal fat collection method, as the ultrasound and agitated bubbles create space around the fat cells, but do not damage the fat cells themselves.

Dr. Millard uses VASER to sculpt the muscles in the leg and calf. As the final steps, some patients may receive fat grafting to further enhance the definition in their muscles. Dr. Millard may also carefully transfer fat to the subdermal areas of the thighs, knees, calves, and ankles to improve the appearance and tighten the skin.


Do you have fat on your thighs, knees, calves, or ankles that refuses to budge, no matter how much you diet and exercise? You may be a good candidate for the benefits of VASER Liposuction for legs.

Men and Women in the Denver area are excellent candidates to eliminate the fat on their inner and outer thighs, knees, and calves for a slim, toned appearance with VASER. VASER will also safely and delicately reduce unwanted ankle pad fat to reduce chubby ankles.

VASER Hi Def Liposuction is intended to help patients get rid of their stubborn, difficult-to-lose fat. VASER is not intended to be used as a weight loss solution. Candidates should have completed the majority of their intended weight loss before receiving VASER Hi Def for the thighs, knees, calves, or ankles. Major fluctuations in weight after any liposuction surgery can impact the sculpting and tight skin tone achieved with the surgery.

VASER Hi Def for Legs is an excellent option for patients who are at a stable weight and would like to put the “finishing touches” on their physique.

Smoking can interfere with the body’s ability to heal after surgery. Candidates for VASER Hi Def Liposuction for thighs, knees, calves, and ankles will need to discontinue smoking at least one week before their surgery date and for at least one week following.
