Vaser High Def Liposuction is a minimally-invasive procedure for men and women, who would like to reveal the muscle definition that is hidden by a layer of stubborn fat. By using ultrasound-assisted liposuction, the experts at Cosmos Aesthetics Canberra can remove pockets of fat to give the body a more athletic and sculpted appearance.
The technique is similar to other liposuction methods that utilise ultrasound. The technology uses ultrasound waves to disrupt or break apart the bonds that bind fat cells together for easier removal. Vaser Hi Def Liposuction goes one step further; it precisely removes localised adipose tissue in areas such as the abdomen, flanks, chest (males), legs and arms.
Why choose Vaser Hi Def Liposuction, Canberra?
Vaser Hi Def Liposuction offers some advantages over other techniques. It has a unique ability to target fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue such as nerves and blood vessels. As a result, patients tend to experience less bleeding and complications.1 Vaser Hi Def Liposuction has also shown to produce mild to moderate skin-tightening effects.2

How is Vaser HD liposuction different from classic methods?
Traditional methods of liposuction are much simpler and less advanced than Vaser HD liposuction. Vaser Hi Def liposuction uses ultrasound technology to break down the stubborn fat cells before removal, allowing for a gentler procedure that does not damage the surrounding tissue in the treatment area.
Thanks to the ultrasound technology, Vaser HD also creates smoother results.
The three main advantages obtained after having performed this step:
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
More fat cells can be removed with less fatigue to the operator.2
Vaser has less bleeding and therefore less trauma to the tissues.3
Vaser HD technology is highly precise, designed to create an athletic and defined body contouring result. The procedure can also create a skin-tightening effect as it stimulates collagen production in the body.
What makes a good candidate for Vaser HD liposuction?
Vaser Hi Def Liposuction is designed for men and women who are in relatively good shape and close to their ideal body weight. The best candidate is someone who exercises regularly, follows a healthy diet and leads a healthy lifestyle, but has a difficult time achieving muscular definition in areas such as abdominals, pectoral or oblique muscles.
Generally, good candidates are those who:
Follow a healthy lifestyle
Are in good overall health
Are close to their ideal body weight
Have good muscle tone
Have good skin tone and elasticity
Have realistic expectations
Are non-smokers, or are willing to quit at least two weeks before and after the procedure
Gentle, conscious sedation– patients will undergo twilight sedation, however, general anaesthesia is an option. For patients who do prefer twilight sedation, medications are available to manage pain and discomfort levels.
Tiny incisions and a numbing saline solution– after making small incisions in the skin, the doctor will inject a saline solution to begin to loosen stubborn fat cells. The saline solution also numbs the treatment area.
Fat is broken down with ultrasound technology– using a small probe, ultrasound energy is transmitted to break up the fat cells, preparing the fat to be gently and easily suctioned.
Fat is easily suctioned away– with a small cannula, the adipose tissue is both superficially and deeply removed, targeting fat cells that are covering the underlying muscles.
How much does the Vaser HD liposcution procedure cost in Canberra?
The Vaser High Definition liposuction technology is far more advanced than traditional methods, requiring high-tech equipment. Additionally, the procedure is designed for high precision, which means procedure time can be longer than procedures that use less enhanced methods of liposuction. The Vaser HD requires doctors to undergo extensive training before using the equipment, which also influences the costs of the procedure.
Costs will vary from patient to patient, as each procedure will look different, taking all of the patient’s personal factors, preferences and aesthetic goals into consideration.
For women, Vaser High Definition liposuction costs start at $7,000. For men, costs will start at $10,000.
Vaser HD liposuction costs are calculated with:
The anaesthesia fees
The type and number of treatment areas
The patient’s body type
The patient’s desired results
The amount of time spent in surgery
In one procedure, multiple areas of the body can be treated, saving extra costs and recovery time in the long term. Each treatment area will cost about $2,000 to treat, which will be calculated in the total procedure costs. As well as saving costs, treating more than one area of the body at once will prompt a more drastic overall improvement to your appearance after your single recovery period.
Anaesthesia fees will depend on the type of anaesthesia chosen, either twilight sedation or general anaesthesia. The type of treatment areas influence costs as although all areas will require precision due to the nature of the procedure, some areas may require more time to treat than others. The amount of time spent in surgery is also influenced by the number of treatment areas.
The clearest and easiest way to determine your total costs is to have an informative and thorough consultation at Cosmos Aesthetics Canberra. One of our experienced doctors can assess your needs, your individual characteristics, and your treatment areas, allowing for a personalised estimation of the total procedure costs. Your consultation is also a great opportunity to discuss anything that you are not sure about, as it is designed to make you feel comfortable and prepared for your procedure. During your consultation, the necessary preparation and recovery instructions will be explained, as well as the associated risks of the procedure.
What are the treatable areas?
Vaser HD can precisely contour multiple areas of the body, such as:
Middle of the thighs
What to expect after the procedure
After treatment, patients may experience mild swelling and bruising. Any discomfort can be managed with pain medication and the use of compression garments. Drainage tubes may be inserted into the treatment areas to collect fluids for the first three to five days after treatment.
Most patients can return to work and other regular activities after one week. Strenuous exercise and other activities are not recommended and best avoided for two to three weeks after treatment. Swelling will continue to decrease, and skin will continue to retract up to six months after surgery, revealing full results. Scars will usually heal and become less noticeable over time, fading to a much less visible line.
Since your procedure will be tailored to you, you will be given personalised recovery instructions to follow that will help you support your healing process. To help you ensure a sufficient recovery, we recommend following a healthy diet, staying hydrated and getting as much rest as you can.
When can I notice the results?
You can notice an improvement on your treatment areas straight after surgery, but some swelling can be expected for three to four weeks, which can interfere with your results becoming completely visible. Final results are typically noticeable after about four to six months, as the body needs to fully heal to reveal the outcome.
What risks or side effects are associated with Vaser HD?
Although Vaser Hi Def is a much gentler procedure than the traditional method, no procedure is without risk. During your consultation, your Cosmos Aesthetics Canberra doctor will outline all of the associated possible side effects in detail. Some complications include infection, prolonged swelling, allergic reaction, bruising, or being unsatisfied with your results. To help minimise risks, follow your preparation and recovery instructions and closely monitor your health during your recovery.
How long do the results of Vaser Hi Def last?
As long as the patient maintains an active and healthy lifestyle, their results should be permanent or last a long time. Gaining a small amount of weight should not affect the results too much but significant weight gain can make the treated areas to look less defined.
