Vaser Liposuction is an advanced cosmetic procedure for sculpting all 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.
After Vaser Liposuction, skin tightening is also possible thanks to the Vaser ultrasound technology. Those who require a greater degree of skin tightening and retraction can combine Vaser Liposuction with our Renuvion Skin Tightening treatments.
Subtle results may be achieved with non-surgical liposuction called CoolSculpting.
More Gentle than Traditional Liposuction for Melting Fat and Tightening Skin
During the Vaser Liposuction procedure, patients are placed under twilight sedation. This eliminates the need for general anesthesia and reduces the complications that are normally associated with cosmetic surgery. 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 for the high-energy ultrasound to break down fatty tissue.
To disguise any scarring from this surgical procedure, 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 main benefit of Vaser Liposuction is it allows for a more even removal of fat than traditional liposuction. The numbing solution makes the fat under the skin more homogeneous and less clumpy. The ultrasound-assisted 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 fat from different angles.
Patients will be thoroughly assessed and fitted with a compression garment before being discharged. To promote a speedy recovery and prevent complications, patients will be monitored with regular follow-up appointments, including complimentary lymphatic drainage massage to reduce side-effects such as swelling.

Vaser Body Contouring Recovery and What to Expect
There is no overnight stay required with Vaser Liposuction Melbourne. Since it’s performed under twilight sedation, all patients can return home the same day. Patients will leave the clinic wearing a compression garment to help with the healing process, skin retraction and to minimise swelling. There may be fluid seepage for about 24 hours following the procedure. The compression garments are worn for three weeks full-time and then three weeks part-time. In most cases, the recovery from Vaser Liposuction has minimal discomfort although some bruising may occur.
Most patients are cleared to return to work in two to five days after treatment. Regular follow-up and lymphatic drainage massage is done twice a week for two weeks to help in the recovery process. To optimise your recovery we ask that you 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
Most of the results become noticeable six weeks after your Vaser lipo procedure. 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.
*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.
