Vaser liposuction uses state-of-the-art ultrasonic technology to achieve fat removal and body contouring. It is minimally invasive and doesn’t always require a general anaesthetic. It is also becoming a popular choice with patients due to the reduced downtime.
There are two types of Vaser liposuction available to choose from: for large areas of the body, you may want to use the a surgical method, and for smaller areas, you can explore the less invasive non-surgical liposuction method. When you talk to your surgeon/doctor at your consultation, you will discuss your medical history, the area you are having treated, and the amount of fat to be removed.
Vaser (vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance) liposuction transmits sound waves into the fatty tissue under the skin, breaking down fat cells, which are then removed by suction. It can be used on up to four areas in a single procedure and is typically used to achieve fat loss in areas such as the stomach, back, thighs, bottom, arms and chin. One of the leading cosmetic surgeons we work with can advise whether Vaser® liposuction is suitable for the result you want to achieve.
There are usually no overnight stays, and with minimal downtime you should have a speedy recovery. It is considered less painful than standard liposuction as it can be can be performed quickly and is minimally invasive.
All surgical procedures pose a potential risk, and it is important know what these are before you go ahead so that you can weigh them up against the benefits your procedure could bring. During your consultations you will talk through these potential complications and you can ask any questions that you have about them.
For Vaser liposuction these include bruising, bleeding, infection, loose skin and irregularities of the skin.
There are two methods of Vaser lipo you could choose from - surgical and non surgical. The procedure you and your surgeon/doctor choose will depend on the area you would like treated.
Surgical Vaser liposuction
You would typically use surgical Vaser lipo for stubborn areas of fat in the stomach, hips, knees, thighs, arms, bottom, or chin. The procedure may involve small incisions and is often carried out under general anaesthetic.
Non-surgical Vaser liposuction
Multiple areas of the body can be treated with non-surgical Vaser liposuction under local anaesthetic. Areas that can be treated are those that are likely to store fat such as the arms, tummy, abdomen, thighs, ‘love handles’, back, and chin, but in a single procedure you can use it on a number of different areas.

Your surgical consultation
During this consultation you will talk about your goals for surgery and go through your medical history to ascertain whether you are a suitable candidate for this procedure. You will also discuss the results you might expect, as well as the possible risks and complications of surgery. Our specialist surgeons are extremely knowledgeable, so they can answer any questions you might have.
If you feel you would like to go ahead, you will then be referred to a clinic nurse for pre-operative assessments and tests.
You will see your surgeon on the day so that you can talk through any final questions and read through the consent form. The whole medical team will be introduced to you before starting the vaser lipo procedure.
The specifics will be discussed prior to the day – you will find out how long it will take, the types of anaesthetics used, and they will talk you through the procedure itself.
