What is VASER liposuction?

Procedure Before/After Fees Post-Operative Instructions Consultants Testimonials Frequently Asked Questions

Liposuction is a surgical procedure to remove unwanted fat deposits, usually located in the hips, thighs, tummy and underside of the arms.

Vaser liposuction is a technique that uses ultrasound technology to target fat cells, breaking them down selectively to make them easier to extract. What distinguishes the Vaser lipo procedure is its ability to differentiate fatty tissue from other important structures - such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. The liquefied fat can be removed with a needle, reducing damage to nearby tissues.

Who is suitable for vaser liposuction?

Vaser liposuction is suitable for most people looking for a cosmetic solution to tone and sculpt their body. But before carrying out the procedure, we’ll always sit down with you and discuss how suitable it is.

VASER lipo is very effective for removing persistent areas of fat that you can’t get rid of through dieting or exercise. Many people find that it’s easy to lose weight from the face or upper body, but it might seem impossible to shed those extra pounds from the waist or bottom. This is where VASER liposuction can help. It’s a fast, low-pain solution that could be just what you’re looking for.

It’s worth remembering though that it’s not a quick-fix when it comes to weight loss and will only work long-term if you’re committed to a healthy lifestyle. That’s why before offering you any vaser lipo treatment, our surgeons will look at your body shape and make sure it’s right for you.

Which areas of my body can be treated?

Vaser liposuction can be used to remove fat almost anywhere. The most common areas for treatment include:

  • Chin and neck
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Tummy
  • Flanks
  • Thighs
  • Knees and ankles
  • Buttocks and hips

What are the advantages of vaser liposuction?

VASER liposuction is a quicker, less invasive and more precise method of liposuction. Using the latest technology, VASER lipo harnesses the power of ultrasound to exclusively target fat cells. This means a shorter, gentler procedure, better results, and faster recovery times.

  • Faster recovery times - you will normally be able to return to work between 2 and 3 days after surgery.
  • Selective fat targeting - ultrasound technology only breaks down fat cells, avoiding nearby nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue.
  • Cellulite removal - vaser liposuction can also remove areas of cellulite, unlike traditional liposuction.

Is vaser liposuction safe?

Liposuction is an extremely common cosmetic procedure, and the vaser technique improves upon traditional liposuction in terms of safety and results. Vaser liposuction has been proven to be safe and causes minimal side effects. It also causes less blood loss than traditional liposuction, especially with larger or more complex areas.

The best way to minimise the risk of VASER lipo side effects is to use a highly skilled cosmetic surgeon. It’s their experience and skill, as well as cutting-edge equipment, that will ensure you get outstanding results and a lower risk of complications.

What should I expect?

VASER liposuction is far less invasive than traditional liposuction, and we’ll do all we can to set you at ease and make you comfortable. When we get underway, your surgeon will mark your body in the areas that are being treated. After this you lie down and we administer a local anaesthetic (or sedation if required). Once the anaesthetic takes effect, we make tiny incisions near the marks and inject tumescent fluid to expand the tissue layer. Once this is done your surgeon will insert a small ultrasonic emitting probe which targets fat cells and breaks them apart. A small hollow tube (cannula) is then used to gently suck the fat away. The procedure is concluded with the incisions being closed and dressed with bandages and a compression garment placed over the top.

How long does vaser lipo surgery take?

VASER liposuction normally takes between one to four hours. The exact time will depend on the size and number of areas treated. Typically, each area will take around an hour to treat.

How long is the recovery period after vaser lipo?

You will be able to go home on the same day as your vaser liposuction procedure. We use either local or twilight anaesthetic meaning reduced recovery time and lower associated risks than with general anaesthetic.

You’ll be able to get on with most things you normally do the day after treatment – or as soon as you feel ok. But with VASER liposuction, it’s good to allow yourself around two to three weeks to fully recover. If you can go for a few walks in those early days that will really help with the drainage of fluid, just avoid any strenuous activity for about a month to let your body get back to normal.

The time you’ll need to take off work really depends on the amount of areas you have treated and what work you do. If you work in an office, you should be fine to return within one to three days after treatment – but you might want to take off a week to let the swelling go down and for your wounds to stop leaking.

How painful is vaser liposuction?

There is usually very little pain following vaser liposuction, and this can be managed easily with painkillers. Minor swelling around the area will usually remain for around 5-6 weeks and you may also experience some bruising or numbness during this period.
