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.
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:
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
*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.
