Will Vaser Liposuction give me curves in all the right places? Should I have Vaser Liposuction or a tummy tuck to get a flat stomach? What happens if I put on weight after the cosmetic surgery?

There are plenty of questions to ask if you’re considering undergoing Vaser Liposuction with any cosmetic surgery team including Cosmos Clinic in Canberra, Australia. But it’s important to ask questions beyond those relating to aesthetics to ensure you are confident in the cosmetic surgeon’s qualifications and experience, and you understand the benefits and limitations of the procedure.

Asking these questions during your liposuction consult will help you determine if the surgical procedure is right for you.

1. What qualifications do you hold?

It is advisable you do your research about the cosmetic or plastic surgeon and their practice before you book an initial consultation. It’s important to clarify not only their experience in Vaser Liposuction but also the qualifications they have to carry out the cosmetic surgery procedure.

2. How many Vaser Liposuction procedures have you performed?

With the popularity of Vaser Liposuction, you want to choose a cosmetic surgeon that has extensive experience with fat cell removal and body contouring using ultrasound technology. Just remember, the results of your cosmetic surgery are a direct result of the skills of your surgery team.

3. Where will the cosmetic procedure take place?

Although Vaser Liposuction is a same day out-patient procedure, it still should be performed in a high-quality cosmetic surgery clinic or hospital setting. Our Canberra Cosmos Clinic is located in Deakin, the medical precinct of Canberra near Calvary John James Hospital.

4. Based on my goals, is this the right procedure for me?

Vaser Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that suits a large variety of patients who need assistance addressing stubborn fat deposits. However, not all patients are the best candidates for liposuction surgery. This may be due to their medical history, skin quality or weight loss expectations.

It is important you have an open and honest conversation with your cosmetic or plastic surgery team to ascertain whether Vaser Liposuction is the right option for you and your body contouring goals. In some cases, they may suggest an alternative procedure to address the excess fat cells such as CoolSculpting, Vaser Hi-Definition or Tummy Tuck.

5. Can I see before and after photos of similar cases?

Before and after photos of similar cases can be a great way to help you feel confident your chosen cosmetic surgeon can deliver results you will be happy with. Just keep in mind, every individual is different and will respond to the cosmetic surgery differently which can affect the final results.

6. What are the benefits of Vaser Liposuction?

Discuss with your cosmetic surgeon the benefits of the ultrasound technology over other procedures such as traditional liposuction so you can have a detailed understanding of the procedure. Even though you may have carried out your own research, it’s helpful for the benefits to be explained in relation to your body shape and goals.

7. What are the limitations of Vaser Liposuction?

As with any cosmetic surgery procedure, Vaser Liposuction does come with its limitations on what it can and can’t achieve. For example, the procedure removes fat cells and can address skin tone, but it doesn’t include the removal of excess or sagging skin. You’ll want to know the limitations to ensure you’re going to gain full benefit from the liposuction procedure.

8. Are there any risks associated with this cosmetic procedure?

Beyond worrying about how much bruising will be visible and your recovery time, it is crucial you are aware of any risks associated with Vaser Liposuction before you commit. Once you understand the possible complications you can make an informed decision as to whether the liposculpture procedure is right for you.
