Vaser High Definition Liposuction is a surgical treatment option for suitable men and women with stubborn fat deposits and unwanted excess fat who want to achieve a more athletic and muscular appearance.
Vaser High Definition Liposuction is an invasive surgical procedure that removes unwanted fat to contour the body shape, creating a more athletic and toned appearance. Vaser Liposuction technology uses ultrasonic waves to disrupt and break apart the bonds that bind fat cells together, for easier fat removal when compared to traditional liposuction techniques.
Whilst the fat removal and body contouring elements of the treatment are similar to other liposculpture methods, Vaser Lipo is able to more precisely remove localised excess fat in targeted areas of the body using ultrasound technology.
What makes Vaser Hi Def Lipo a good treatment option?
Three main treatment advantages of using Vaser Liposuction technology include:
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 can induce less blood vessel trauma to the targeted areas of tissue. 3
Vaser High Definition Liposuction has the potential to produce specialised results, particularly when a muscular and fit appearance is desired by the patient. Vaser Hi Def Lipo targets small excess fatty tissue surrounding and above the muscles in the treated area. The high precision can contour the treatment areas for a more defined result, allowing the underlying muscles to become more visible.

UNDERSTANDING VASER HI DEF LIPO
Considering the Procedure
Why choose to have Vaser Hi Def Liposuction in Sydney?
Depending on the pre-existing body shape and final result goals of each patient, medical studies show that Vaser Hi Def Liposuction can offer visibly aesthetic results and procedural advantages over other fat removal techniques. A benefit of Vaser Lipo is that it’s a less invasive cosmetic surgery treatment option when compared to traditional liposuction. The ultrasound technology used for Vaser Liposuction liquefies fat cells in the body reducing potential damage to surrounding tissue, can enhance skin tightening effects, produce less bleeding, and may also cause milder bruising.
Who is a good candidate for Vaser High Definition Liposuction?
Men and women with stubborn or unresponsive fatty deposits who want to achieve an overall more athletic and muscular body shape appearance, tend to be good candidates for liposuction procedures. Vaser Hi Def Liposuction is not a form of weight loss surgery, and may be a suitable treatment option for patients who are:
Close to their ideal body weight.
Follow a healthy lifestyle.
Are in excellent overall physical and mental health.
Have good muscle and skin tone.
Have good skin elasticity.
Are a non-smoker or are willing to quit for at least four weeks before and after the procedure.
Having a Vaser High Definition procedure is often more suitable for men than it is for women. Women who opt for Vaser Hi Def Lipo typically have the goal of a highly defined abdomen or a bodybuilder type aesthetic, which is not always a realistic outcome or possible to achieve.
How much does Vaser Hi Def Liposuction cost in Sydney?
It is important to remember when considering cosmetic surgery treatment costs, that a Vaser Hi Def Liposuction procedure offers a more advanced liposuction technique versus other methods of liposculpture, which is reflected in the price point. The total costs incurred for each patient is calculated from elements including the number of areas being treated, the relevant anaesthetic fees, the surgery time needed, and individual procedure specifics such as the amount of fat to be removed.
At Cosmos Clinic Sydney, the price for a Vaser Hi Def Liposuction procedure will always vary from patient to patient, but as a general guide the surgery starts from a minimum base price of $7,000 for women and $10,000 for men. This is just a guide and is not intended to be a quote. The total cost of surgery is determined during the initial consultations with your doctor, and will depend on individual factors including but not limited to:
When undergoing a Vaser Liposuction procedure at Cosmos Clinic Sydney, you will be provided detailed information during your consultations on how to prepare for your procedure, and what to expect during the recovery period. Certain medications or supplements can negatively influence the healing process after a procedure, if you are taking any of these you may be instructed by the doctor to stop until after you have recovered. If you are a smoker, you will need to quit smoking for a minimum of four weeks before and after your procedure. Smoking increases pre and post-surgical risks, and can extend recovery times.
How is Vaser High Definition Liposuction performed?
Numbing Solution: the procedure starts with your doctor making small incisions in each treatment area, before a local anaesthetic numbing tumescent solution is injected into all of the areas of your body being treated.
IV Sedation: the procedure is performed under IV sedation, either twilight anaesthetic or general anaesthesia, the level of sedation used depends on the individual circumstances and medical needs of each patient.
Ultrasonic Technology: a specialised probe that transmits ultrasound energy is inserted into the tissue to break apart and liquify the fat cells, before the unwanted fat is suctioned out of the body with a cannula via the same incision sites.
Targeted Fat Removal: the treatment goal of Hi Def Vaser Lipo is to remove the specific fat cells located on top of and around the major muscle groups in the abdomen, to enhance the visibility of underlying muscles.
Is there any downtime after the procedure?
After surgery, patients will experience downtime including swelling, bruising, stiffness, and discomfort, which can be managed with pain medication prescribed by your doctor. Compression garments are also worn throughout the recovery period. Each individual recovers differently, but as a general guide, most patients are able to slowly resume light daily activities by around one week post-procedure. Strenuous exercise and other activities are not recommended and should be avoided for six weeks following a cosmetic procedure.
Swelling will continue to decrease, and skin will continue to retract for up to six months post-procedure. Depending on the scarring history of each individual patient, the incision site scars usually become less noticeable over time. As these small incisions heal, specialised silicone scar creams can be used on them throughout the recovery period.
Are there any side effects from having Vaser Hi Def Liposuction?
A complete list of all potential risks, side effects, and possible complications will be discussed in detail with the doctor during your initial consultations. Copies of this paperwork will also be provided to you to review and consider during the mandatory cooling off period following your second consultation.
When will I see the results from having Vaser Lipo?
As swelling fluctuations begin to settle and bruising subsides, the results generally start to become noticeable around six weeks post-procedure. Following the aftercare instructions as directed, wearing your compression garments, performing daily self-massages on the treated areas, and attending your scheduled follow-up appointments, are all required to optimise healing. The final results of surgery can take up to six months or longer to fully appear, and the result outcomes achieved will vary from patient to patient.
