Liposuction that results in a permanent change in body shape

Vaser Liposuction can be used on all areas of the body such as the tummy, love handles, arms, legs and neck. It can also be used for man boobs (gynecomastia), breast reduction and chubby cheeks.

Patients see a permanent change in their body shape after Vaser Liposuction – fat is distributed more evenly over the whole body as the fat cells have been removed.

During the procedure, a degree of skin tightening is also achieved thanks to the Vaser technology. Those looking for a greater degree of tightening and retraction can pair Vaser Liposuction with our Renuvion Skin Tightening treatment.

Subtle results may be achieved via non-surgical liposuction called CoolSculpting.

Gently melts the fat and tightens the skin for a smooth natural result

On the day of the Vaser Liposuction procedure, patients are placed under twilight sedation. This eliminates the need for general anesthesia and the adverse effects associated.1 However a general anaesthetic is an option (on request).

Tiny incisions are made to allow a numbing solution to be infiltrated under the skin – acting as a medium for the high energy ultrasound to react with the fatty tissue.

To minimise noticeable scars post-procedure, incisions are placed in discrete areas such as in the belly button and near the bikini line for the typical tummy liposuction.

After the infiltration, a small ultrasound probe is passed under the skin to dissolve the fatty layer before it is suctioned. Vaser Liposuction transforms the “brick” of fat into a soft material (much like a slab of butter) that facilitates the gentle removal of the fat with suctioning.

Vaser Liposuction allows the removal of more fat than traditional liposuction as it is less likely to leave clumps of unseparated fat. This ultrasound-assisted energy also stimulates collagen production which promotes skin tightening in the area treated, therefore resulting in smoother contours and avoids skin dimpling and sagging.

To achieve optimal results, patients will be re-positioned and made to stand up if necessary at intervals during the procedure, so that the surgeon can assess the fat removal from different angles.

Following the procedure, the patient will be fitted into compression garments and thoroughly assessed before being discharged home. Patients will be monitored with regular follow-up appointments including complimentary lymphatic massages to help with the swelling and recovery process.

Recovery & what to expect after the Vaser Lipo procedure

As Vaser Liposuction is performed under twilight sedation, all patients return home on the same day. The patient is placed into a compression garment to help with the healing process, skin retraction and to minimise swelling. There will be fluid seepage for about 24 hours following the procedure. The compression garments is applied for 3 weeks full time and 3 weeks part time. In most cases, the recovery from lipoplasty has minimal discomfort and very mild bruising. Most patients return to work in 2 to 5 days after the procedure. At Cosmos Clinic, we assist in the recovery process with regular follow up lymphatic massages, twice a week for 2 weeks. This assists the healing process and aids in yielding better results. To optimise your recovery process, become familiar with the do’s of Liposuction recovery:

  • Do wear your liposuction compression garments
  • Do maintain a healthy diet
  • Do listen to your body
  • Do take care of your surgical sites
  • Do attend post surgical check ups

Most of the results are obtained at 6 weeks. At this point, photos are taken to assess your progress. The final results may not be apparent for 3 – 6 months post-operatively. Strict adherence to the pre-operative and post-operative requirements is necessary in order to achieve the best possible results.

*Results may vary from patient to patient.

What is Vaser Liposuction?

Vaser Liposuction is an advanced method of liposculpture that involves removing excess fat and contouring the body to give a smooth result. Vaser stands for “Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance”, and it is one of the gentlest methods of liposuction.

Vaser Liposuction uses an ultrasound probe that is inserted into the fat layer under the skin to melt and then remove fat cells. Traditionally, liposuction techniques were less refined and separating the excess fat before suctioning was much like trying to shatter a brick into pieces before its removal. This meant more pain for the patient and a longer recovery time post operation.

Vaser Liposuction is vastly different to this and can be likened to transforming that brick of fat into a slab of butter – thus allowing the fat to be gently removed. The high energy from the ultrasound separates the fat cells from the fibrous tissue and transforms it into a butter-like form. The ultrasound energy also promotes skin tightening following the procedure, which reduces the chance of skin dimpling or sagging. The heat created by the ultrasound energy creates a contraction of the collagen fibres and tightening of the skin.

Cosmos Clinic was the first to acquire the new Vaser 2.0 in New South Wales and we currently have the most Vaser Liposuction systems in the world. This has allowed us to perform over 15,000 liposuction procedures in the last TEN years across the whole of Australia. At Cosmos Clinic, our doctors are specialists in body contouring – specifically for liposuction procedures. Our doctors have been trained by the best surgeons around the world, including Dr Alfredo Hoyos (the inventor of Vaser High Definition Liposuction) and Dr Matlock (Beverly Hills, USA).

What are the advantages of Vaser Liposuction?

Vaser Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure and the advantages include:

  • Quicker recovery: Due to the gentle nature of the ultrasound, this form of liposuction is less traumatic and has less downtime for patients.
  • Skin Retraction: Ultrasonic energy promotes skin retraction, therefore tightening the skin and providing smooth contours.
  • Precision: Both small and large volumes of fat can be extracted from different areas of the body. This allows the surgeon to be more precise while sculpting muscle definition for high definition Vaser.
  • Fat Transfer: Fat tissue removed during the procedure is of high quality and can be used for fat grafting procedures on the same patient. (e.g. during a Brazilian Butt Lift or a buttock enhancement).
  • Safe and minimally invasive: A safe, minimally invasive way of fat reduction, and can be done as a day procedure under twilight sedation. This not only avoids the complications of general anaesthesia but also allows the patient to be re-positioned and stood up during the procedure.
  • More effective: More fat can be removed with this technique as compared to other techniques as it melts the fat gently before it is sucked out.

What is the difference between Vaser and Vaser High Definition Liposuction?

Vaser Liposuction shapes the body by getting rid of any uneven pockets of fat using ultrasound technology to separate the fat cells for easier removal. This ultimately gives a slimmer, toner look to the body. Vaser High Definition Liposuction goes one step further in the process of body sculpting. This technique removes fat from around and on top of the muscle groups to enhance the visibility of underlying muscles. This form of liposuction produces ultra-defined results with a more athletic appearance. The best candidates for this treatment have thick skin, good skin tone, and can feel the muscles underneath the skin, when contracting. For example, Vaser High Definition would remove the small amounts of fat in-between the abs, to bring out a perfect six pack.

I have a large amount of fat. Is Vaser Liposuction suitable?

Vaser, is not a replacement for diet and exercise however you can lose large amounts weight when you have Mega Liposuction.

What happens to the skin after Vaser Liposuction?

Vaser liposuction stimulates the formation of new collagen fibres via the use of heat energy created by the Vaser ultrasound. This allows the skin to retract – resulting in tighter, firmer skin.
