Vaser Liposuction is an advanced liposuction procedure for sculpting all areas of the body. It can slim down 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 that Results in a Permanent Body Contouring in Sydney
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 also possible with Vaser Liposuction thanks to the Vaser ultrasound technology. Those with considerable skin laxity and require a greater degree of tightening and retraction can combine Vaser Liposuction with our Renuvion Skin Tightening treatments.
Subtle results may be achieved with non-surgical liposuction called CoolSculpting.
Vaser Liposuction Gently Melts Fat and Tightens Skin for Smooth, Natural Results
During the Vaser Liposuction procedure, patients are placed under twilight sedation. This eliminates the need for general anesthesia and the adverse effects associated with it. General anaesthetic is available upon request.
Tiny incisions are made to allow a numbing solution to be administered under the skin. The solution also acts as a medium for the high-energy ultrasound to break down fatty tissue.
To minimise 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 suctioning 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.
Vaser Liposuction allows a more even removal of fatty tissue than traditional liposuction as it’s less likely to leave clumps of fat. 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 optimal results, patients may be re-positioned or made to stand up during the procedure so that the surgeon can assess the fat removal from different angles.
Before being discharged, patients will be thoroughly assessed and fitted into compression garments. To promote a speedy recovery and prevent complications, patients will be monitored with regular follow-up appointments, including complimentary lymphatic massage to help with any swelling side-effects.
10 Years’ Experience with Over 15,000 Liposuction Procedures Performed
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 Australia. At Cosmos Clinic, our doctors are renowned for body contouring – specifically for the popular liposuction procedures. Our doctors have been trained by top surgeons around the world, including Dr Alfredo Hoyos (the inventor of Vaser High Definition Liposuction) and Dr Matlock (Beverly Hills, USA).
Your initial Vaser Liposuction consultation and subsequent procedure can be undertaken at our cosmetic clinic in Sydney, Australia.
We are also proud to see many interstate as well as overseas patients each year at Cosmos Clinic. To ensure utmost professionalism and consistency, we have developed a set of procedures for our out-of-town patients. For those travelling to see us, we ask that you send images of the areas you wish to have treated, which Cosmos Clinic your prefer and where you are located. This will allow our staff to include all the necessary information as part of your personalised quote.
Recovery and What to Expect After Vaser Lipo Procedure
Since Vaser Liposuction is performed under twilight sedation, all patients can return home on the same day. Patients 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 is 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 can return to work in two to five days after the procedure. At Cosmos Clinic, we assist in the recovery process with regular follow-up lymphatic massages, twice a week for two weeks. This assists the healing process and produces 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 become noticeable at the six week mark. 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.
What is Vaser Liposuction?
Vaser Liposuction is an advanced method of liposculpture that involves removing excess fat and sculpting the body for smoother curves and contours. Vaser stands for “Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance,” and it’s a more gentle method of liposuction.
Vaser Liposuction uses an ultrasound probe that is inserted into the fat layer under the skin to melt and remove fat cells. Traditionally, liposuction techniques were less advanced and extracting the excess fat without melting it first was like sucking out a brick through a straw. This meant more pain and trauma at the treatment site for the patient and a longer recovery time post operation.
Vaser Liposuction is vastly different and can be likened to transforming the brick of fat into melted 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 liquid consistency. The ultrasound energy also promotes mild skin tightening by contracting the existing collagen fibres and stimulating the production of new collagen.

What are the Advantages of Vaser Liposuction?
Vaser Liposuction is a cosmetic procedure with many advantages, including:
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.
What is the difference between Vaser and Vaser High Definition Liposuction?
Vaser Liposuction shapes the body by getting rid of uneven pockets of fat using ultrasound technology to break down fat cells for easier removal. This ultimately gives a slimmer, more toned 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 muscles to make them more defined and visible. This form of liposuction produces ultra-sculpted results with a more athletic appearance. The best candidates for this treatment have healthy 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 accentuate the 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 of weight with Mega Liposuction.
What happens to the skin after Vaser Liposuction?
Vaser liposuction stimulates the formation of new collagen fibers via the use of ultrasound heat energy. This allows the dermal layers to retract – resulting in tighter, firmer skin.
