Vaser Liposuction is an advanced cosmetic procedure for sculpting and toning multiple areas of the body. It can reduce inches around the tummy, love handles, arms, legs (inner thighs) and neck. It can also be used for man boobs (gynecomastia), breast reduction and chubby cheeks.
Liposuction Procedure for Long-Term Body Contouring in Adelaide
Patients can see a permanent improvement in body shape after Vaser Liposuction – fat is distributed more evenly as excess fat cells have been removed.
Skin-tightening is another benefit of Vaser Liposuction thanks to its Vaser ultrasound technology. For patients who have a lot of sagging skin, however, we recommend pairing Vaser Liposuction with our Renuvion Skin Tightening treatments.
We also offer another non-surgical liposuction procedure called CoolSculpting.
Gently Removes Fat with the Added Benefit of Skin-Tightening
General anaesthetic is not required with Vaser Liposuction. Patients are normally placed under twilight sedation, which means they’re awake but don’t feel any pain. Not going under general anaesthetic reduces the chances of developing the complications associated with cosmetic surgery. (Note: general anaesthetic is available upon request).
Vaser Liposuction involves making small incisions through which numbing solution is administered under the skin. The solution also acts as a medium which allows the high-energy ultrasound to break down stubborn fat. Surgical incisions are placed in discreet areas such as in the belly button or near the bikini line in the case of tummy liposuction.
Next, a small ultrasound probe or cannula is inserted under the skin to dissolve the fat cells and make the suction process easier. Vaser Liposuction transforms the “brick” of fat into a soft material (much like melting a slab of butter) to facilitate the removal of fat.
The biggest benefit of Vaser Liposuction is that the fat removal process is easier and less invasive than traditional liposuction. The numbing solution turns the fat into a homogeneous liquid that’s much less likely to clump. The ultrasound energy also stimulates collagen production, promoting skin tightening in the treatment area. This results in smoother contours and prevents skin dimpling and sagging.
To achieve the smoothest results possible, patients may be re-positioned or asked to stand up during the procedure. This allows the surgeon to assess and remove fatty tissue from different angles.
After the Vaser Liposuction Procedure patients will be thoroughly assessed and fitted with a compression garment. After being discharged, patients will also be monitored with regular follow-up appointments and lymphatic drainage massage to reduce side-effects and speed up the recovery process.

What is the Recovery Process Like After Vaser Lipo?
Unlike traditional liposuction, there is no overnight stay required with Vaser Lipo. Since it’s performed under twilight sedation, all patients can return home the same day. To speed up the healing process, patients will leave the clinic wearing compression garments. This also helps with skin retraction and minimises swelling. There may be fluid seepage for about 24 hours following the procedure which is perfectly normal. The compression garments are worn for three weeks full-time and then three weeks part-time. In most cases, the recovery from Vaser Liposuction is minimal, although some minor bruising may occur.
Most patients can return to work in two to five days after treatment. Regular follow-up and lymphatic drainage massage is performed twice a week for two weeks to help in the recovery process. Most of the results become noticeable six weeks after Vaser lipo. At this point, photos are taken to assess your progress. The final results may not be apparent for 3–6 months post procedure.
Strict adherence to the preoperative and postoperative instructions is necessary in order to achieve the best possible results. To optimise your recovery please become familiar with the following do’s of liposuction recovery:
*Results may vary from patient to patient. **All photos are of patients from Cosmos Clinic, and all ‘after’ images are taken 6 weeks post operation.
What is Vaser Liposuction?
Vaser Liposuction is an advanced technique for body contouring that involves surgically removing excess fat from the body. Vaser stands for “Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance,” and it’s considered by many cosmetic surgeons to be a gentler method than traditional liposuction.
During Vaser Liposuction an ultrasound probe is inserted into the fat layer under the skin to melt and remove fat cells. Old school liposuction techniques used to be much more invasive, extracting excess fat without melting it first. This can be likened to sucking out a brick through a straw. With this method, patients experienced more pain and trauma at the treatment site, as well as a much longer recovery time.
Vaser Liposuction revolutionised the plastic surgery industry. The high energy from the ultrasound separates the fat cells from the fibrous tissue, transforming it into a liquid form. Changing solid fat into a ‘melted butter’ consistency allows it to be removed gently. The ultrasound also promotes mild skin-tightening by contracting the existing collagen fibers and stimulating the production of new collagen.
What are the Benefits of Vaser Liposuction?
The benefits of Vaser Liposuction for body contouring includes:
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).
Safer and Minimally-Invasive: Vaser Liposuction is a safer, less invasive way of fat reduction, and can be done as a day procedure under twilight sedation. This prevents the complications of general anaesthesia and if necessary, allows the patients to stand up for a more precise liposuction treatment .
More Effective: More fat can be removed with this technique as compared to others as it melts the fat gently before it is suctioned out.
Is a there Difference Between Vaser and Vaser High Def?
Vaser Liposuction shapes the body by eradicating small to moderate areas of excess fat. Ultrasound technology breaks down fat cells first for easier removal. This gives the skin and body a smoother and more toned appearance.
Vaser High Definition Liposuction goes one step further. It’s liposuction surgery that removes fat from between and top of the muscles to make them appear ultra-defined and noticeable. It’s the ideal liposuction procedure to give smaller areas a more sculpted and athletic appearance. For example, High Def Vaser can precisely target small fat deposits in between the abdominal wall to create the appearance of the perfect “six pack.”
The best candidates for Vaser High Definition Liposuction have healthy, strong skin, good skin tone, and can feel the muscles underneath the skin, when contracting.
Is Vaser Liposuction Suitable for People who Are Overweight?
Vaser Liposuction is not a replacement for a healthy lifestyle; however, you can get rid of large amounts of weight with Mega Liposuction.
How Will the Skin Look After Vaser Liposuction?
There is a mild skin-tightening effect after Vaser Liposuction. Ultrasound heat energy stimulates the production of new collagen fibers. This allows the skin to retract – resulting in tighter, firmer skin.
