Vaser Hi Def Liposuction (also called Vaser Hi Def Liposculpture) is an advanced procedure that takes traditional lipo to the next level. It uses ultrasound to strategically break down and remove fat from the body to reveal natural definition and muscle structures underneath.
VASER is short for vibration amplification of sound energy of resonance. This technique utilises an ultrasound probe to first liquefy fat cells before removing them from the body. Vaser Hi Def Lipo is ideal for creating definition and sculpting areas such as arms, chest, shoulders, abs, back and inner thighs.
Why choose Vaser Hi Def Liposuction, Melbourne?
Patients may undergo Vaser High Def Liposuction because it’s minimally-invasive and able to remove fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue (nerves and blood vessels). It can also achieve a level of precision that’s not possible with traditional liposuction. Furthermore, studies show that Vaser Hi Def Liposuction results in mild to moderate skin-tightening effects.
Who is the best candidate for Vaser Hi Def Liposuction?
The ideal patient is someone in good physical shape with good musculature, works out regularly and doesn’t need to lose weight or remove large amounts of fat. It’s perfect for women and men who are already close their ideal weight and want to achieve a more chiseled appearance.
How Vaser Hi Def Liposuction is performed
Gentle sedation – general anaesthesia is not required although it’s an option. For patients who choose conscious sedation, medications are available to minimise pain and discomfort, and make them more comfortable during the procedure.
Tumescent solution – the procedure starts with making tiny incisions in the skin, followed by injecting a saline solution to help loosen stubborn fat cells and numb the area(s) being treated.
Vaser ultrasound – a small probe that transmits ultrasound energy is inserted which further breaks up the fat cells, allowing them to be easily suctioned away without harming the surrounding tissue.
Liposuction – A small cannula is used by the surgeon to remove adipose tissue both superficially and in the deeper layers. The goal is to target fat cells around the muscle groups to enhance the visibility of underlying muscles, producing ultra-defined results.
What to expect after the procedure
Immediately after treatment, you’ll be required to wear a compression garment to assist with healing and blood circulation. It’s recommended to take 2-3 days off work to recover after your surgery. Most patients are able to go back to work or return to their normal activities within a week. Light exercise can be resumed after 2-4 weeks. If you plan to get back to heavy weight training or other strenuous activities make sure to get cleared by your surgeon first.
It can take up to 4-6 months to see the final results and desired muscle definition. A good outcome will produce sculpting that looks well-proportioned and enhances your natural physique. In certain cases a touch up may be required after six months to fine-tune your results.
How much does the procedure cost?
Vaser Hi Def Liposuction Melbourne starts at $7000 and up depending on the area(s) being treated.
What areas of the body can be treated with Vaser Hi Def Liposuction?

Thighs (outer, inner and middle)
Vaser Hi Def vs traditional liposuction: what is the difference?
The main difference between Vaser Liposuction and traditional liposuction is the use of ultrasound. Traditional liposuction methods use a cannula and suction to remove fat cells. Vaser Liposuction is an advanced technique that utilises an ultrasonic device to break up or liquefy the fat cells first, followed by extraction with a cannula. Both techniques are effective at removing unwanted fat; however, Vaser liposuction is gentler and results in less trauma and downtime. Vaser Hi Def Liposuction is the next level in Vaser technology because it removes stubborn fat for precise body contouring.
Is Vaser Hi Def Liposuction permanent?
As long as patients maintain a healthy weight, their results should be permanent or last a long time. Significate weight gain or pregnancy can reverse the results of the liposuction surgery. For optimum long-term outcomes, a healthy diet and active lifestyle are recommended after the procedure.
When will results be visible?
Patients will notice an immediate improvement after surgery; however, some swelling is normal for the first 3-4 weeks. This may affect how the treatment area looks and some patience is needed to see the final outcome. The final results will be visible 4-6 months after surgery because it takes that long for the body to completely heal.
