    THE RESULTS

    A flatter and more defined stomach

    With a technologically advanced method, the Vaser liposuction procedure will contour and smooth your stomach, evenly distributing the remaining abdomen fat and tightening any loose skin.

    THE PROCEDURE

    Gentle fat removal with skin tightening effects for a toned and smooth result

    Cosmos Clinic Sydney uses Vaser liposuction. Vaser technology uses ultrasound to break down the stubborn fat cells before removal, which allows for a greater removal of fat cells.1 The method of melting the fat before liposuction prevents damage to the surrounding tissue, while the ultrasound energy works to tighten the skin, preventing any noticeable loose skin after the procedure.

    Vaser is performed under twilight sedation and local anaesthesia. However, general anaesthesia is an option that patients can opt for if preferred.

    After the anaesthesia is administered, a tiny incision will be placed in a discreet area, such as in the belly button or the bikini line. The Vaser probe is inserted and moved back and forth to separate the stubborn fat cells on your abdomen. Once the fat has been liquefied, a cannula will suction the fat away.

    If you’re interested in achieving a highly athletic and muscular result, Vaser High Definition goes one step further, precisely targeting fat deposits to enhance the visibility of the underlying abdominal muscles. If you feel unsure about whether to choose Vaser liposuction or Vaser High Definition liposuction, your doctor can help you determine which method is more suitable for you during your consultation.

    Costs of Abdominal Liposuction at Cosmos Clinic Sydney

    Generally, all procedure costs should vary from individual to individual, as no two procedures are the same. At Cosmos Clinic in Sydney, we use Vaser liposuction to contour the abdomen, a method that is equipped with advanced technology.

    Vaser liposuction procedures are tailored to the patient’s specific needs and body type, which will influence the overall procedure time and the details of the surgery that are considered when calculating the total cost. The high-tech and ultra-modern design requires our doctors to have extensive training to use the technology, which can also influence the total costs of the procedure.

    Costs for stomach liposuction procedures with Vaser technology at Cosmos Clinic Sydney start at $4,400.

    Stomach liposuction costs depend on:

    • The patient’s body type
    • The patient’s desired results
    • The amount of fat that needs to be removed
    • The type of anaesthetic used
    • The overall procedure time
    • The number of treatment areas, should the stomach liposuction procedure be combined with liposuction on other areas of the body

    If you would like to combine stomach liposuction with other liposuction procedures to focus on additional areas of the body, each treatment area will cost $1,750. Despite the additional cost, treating multiple areas on the same day of your abdominal liposuction procedure will reduce overall costs and recovery times, as you won’t need to pay multiple fees associated with the procedure such as anaesthesia fees that would be required when undergoing multiple separate procedures.

    As for the overall procedure time, abdominal liposuction with Vaser usually takes one to four hours to complete. Procedure time will vary from patient to patient, as it will depend on the amount of fat in the abdominal area, and whether other areas of the body are being treated at the same time.

    Before your procedure, you will have an informative consultation, where one of our experienced doctors can calculate your overall procedure costs with consideration to your individual needs.

    POST SURGERY

    What to Expect During Your Recovery

    Vaser liposuction to contour and flatter the abdomen is a less invasive procedure than traditional liposuction, which allows for a simpler recovery.

    You might experience mild pain during the earlier days of recovery, but you are able to return home after your procedure and manage any discomfort with prescription medication if needed. Fluid leakage around the treated area is normal and can last for about three to five days. You may notice some bruising around the treated area but this will subside as the body heals. Swelling can also be expected while the body is healing, which can interfere with the visibility of results for the first couple of days. To help with swelling and skin tightening, wearing a compression garment around your abdomen for three weeks full time and three weeks part time will be important. Returning to Cosmos Clinic Sydney for lymphatic massages about twice a week for two weeks will also aid the recovery process and contribute to achieving good results.

    Usually, patients will only need to take one week away from work or daily activities, depending on the nature of the activities. If your job requires you to exercise strenuously, such as weight training or lifting heavy objects, you will likely need to take some more time away from work to recover.

    As well as discussing your goals and assessing your individual characteristics, your consultation will provide you with recovery instructions to help you navigate your healing process. To simplify your recovery, you can follow this checklist:

    • Follow a healthy diet
    • Stay hydrated with at least 2L of water per day
    • Take care of your surgical sites as instructed
    • Wear your compression garment
    • Avoid smoking and alcohol
    • Avoid certain medications and supplements that can slow healing down
    • Attend your post-surgical check-ups
    • Avoid strenuous exercise and heavy lifting
    • Avoid hot baths, spas, and saunas

    Vaser liposuction procedure benefits

    • The three main advantages obtained:
      1. 54% more skin tightening than traditional liposuction, due to the thermal effect of the Vaser stimulating a surge in collagen production in the skin and remaining tissue.1
      2. More fat cells can be removed with less fatigue to the operator.2
      3. Vaser has less bleeding and therefore less trauma to the tissues.3

    Preparation steps

    You will have detailed instructions to follow after your consultation to prepare for your procedure. To prepare, you should look after your health and get organised for your recovery. To look after your body, you will need to:

    • Quit smoking at least two weeks before surgery
    • Avoid certain medications and supplements that can hinder the body’s healing process during recovery
    • Follow a healthy diet and stay hydrated
    • Make sure that you are getting enough sleep

    To get organised for your recovery, a helpful checklist can look like the following:

    • Purchase comfortable clothes that will sit loosely around your abdomen
    • Fill any needed prescription medication
    • Prepare healthy meals, or ‘meal prep,’ so that you don’t have to worry about cooking healthy food while you are recovering
    • Ask somebody to pick you up from the hospital and help you with tasks around the house during your recovery

    Making sure that you are prepared for your procedure will help you feel more confident on the day of the procedure. Preparing for surgery will help your body recover faster and more efficiently, as well as minimise associated risks and side effects of the procedure.

    Associated risks and complications

    While Vaser technology supports a simpler recovery and is associated with less risks than the traditional liposuction methods, all procedures will pose some risks. You will be thoroughly informed of the complications that can occur during your consultation. These risks can include:

    • Prolonged pain
    • Numbness
    • Bruising around the surgical site
    • Bleeding
    • Persistent swelling
    • Asymmetry or skin irregularities
    • Loose skin that has failed to tighten post-surgery
    • Fluid accumulation
    • Nausea
    • Blood clots
    • Scarring

    The good news is that following your preparation and recovery steps accurately can help you to minimise risks. Side effects such as pain, swelling and scarring can usually be managed or treated with prescription medication, cold compress or topical scar-lightening creams.

    Who is a good candidate for stomach liposuction with Vaser?

    Good candidates for abdominal liposuction with Vaser technology can include those who:

    • Have stubborn fat deposits on the upper and lower abdomen
    • Are in good physical and mental health
    • Have good skin elasticity
    • Want to follow a healthy diet and exercise routine after recovery
    • Are non-smokers or are willing to stop smoking before and after surgery
    • Hold realistic expectations for surgery

    Keep in mind, this is a general guide and your consultation at Cosmos Clinic Sydney will ultimately determine your suitability for stomach liposuction.

    When can I see results?

    Results can be instant, however, swelling can interfere with the visibility of results during the early days of recovery. As you recover, your results will begin to gradually appear. The skin-tightening effect will also need some time to become noticeable. Usually, patients will see the final results of the procedure about six months after surgery.

    Will my results be permanent?

    While results from Vaser liposuction are considered permanent, as removed fat cells do not return, adopting poor lifestyle habits after recovery can enlarge the remaining fat cells. To ensure that your results do remain permanent, you should follow a healthy diet and exercise routine, avoid smoking, and stay on top of your hydration levels.

    Will I feel any pain during the procedure?

    Stomach liposuction requires either twilight sedation and local anaesthesia or general anaesthesia. Therefore, you should not feel any pain during the procedure, as the treated area will be completely numb.

    Do I need to undergo multiple procedures?

    Since Vaser technology provides quite an effective method of fat removal, one procedure can be enough to achieve the results that you want. The amount of procedures required will depend on how much fat needs to be removed in the area. During your consultation, your doctor will assess your treatment area and determine the amount of procedures that will be needed.

    How do I know how much fat will need to be removed?

    The amount of fat that will need to be removed depends on your aesthetic goals. Typically, about three to five litres of fat can be removed, as removing too much fat in one procedure is not as gentle and can increase associated risks during recovery. As a guide, removing more than five litres of fat will require a second procedure. This will be hard to accurately measure by yourself, so we recommend waiting until your consultation to determine the amount of fat that you will need to have removed.

    Can multiple areas be treated at the same time as the stomach with Vaser?

    If you would like to treat other areas of your body at the same time as the abdomen, such as hips, flanks, back, thighs and arms, this is an option with Vaser liposuction. You can discuss this option with your doctor during your consultation, who can advise you on a suitable treatment plan that is tailored to your needs.

    Does the stomach liposuction procedure with Vaser cause scarring?

    While scarring is always an associated risk of any surgery, Vaser liposuction will only require tiny incisions that can be placed in discreet areas, making any scarring easily concealable. To help minimise the appearance of scars, scar management methods such as applying a topical cream are designed support the gradual fading that occurs with time. If you are concerned about scarring, you can discuss this with your doctor during your consultation and make a plan to manage the appearance of possible scars.
