A Guide To Vaser Liposuction

Despite a healthy lifestyle and regular exercise, we frequently find pockets of fat difficult to get rid of. Although this is completely normal and not harmful however, many people want to remove these fat pockets by cosmetic surgeryin favor of a more slim and clearly defined shape.

Vaser Liposuction is a great way to achieve this, by enhancing the natural look of your face as well as creating a defined and toned physique.

Vaser Liposuction, also known as Liposculpture, is an advanced body sculpting cosmetic procedure that utilizes a specific technique for removing fat to contour and sculpt your body. Based on the degree of sculpting desired, the surgeon will perform the procedure in a high definition, middle definition, or standard Vaser Liposuction.

How does it work?

Vaser Liposuction offers minimally-invasive advanced ultrasound technology to precisely target and eliminate excess fat.

By utilizing the ultrasound’s energy and the heat created by the probes, the surgeon can strategically melt the fat prior to getting it removed, resulting in far better results than traditional liposuction in which the fat isn’t removed but rather melted.

This is the reason why Vaser Liposuction is thought to be superior to traditional liposuction.

Vaser Liposuction, also known as Ultrasonic Liposuction, because of the ultrasonic energies and technology used, is a state-of-the-art, minimally invasive method for eliminating fat. The energy of ultrasound targets unwanted fat, while also preserving vital tissues such as nerves connective tissue, blood vessels and Collagen to speed up healing. Through the removal of both deep and superficial fats that surround muscle groups, it improves the visibility of the muscle groups that are toned beneath. The result is a reshaped body that appears more defined and sculpted . This gives an enviable, toned and shapely appearance.

To get the most effective results, it is essential that your surgeon is a specially trained in VASER Hi Def Liposuction and you can also receive an enhanced version of traditional Liposuction with no added shaping.

The procedure is performed prior to Vaser Liposuction Surgery

In the first appointment, you will have a meeting with your Vaser Liposuction surgeon to discuss your expectations and potential outcomes. In your appointment, you will be measured – you must have a BMI below 28 and measured to determine your custom-made clothing, which is required for your program of aftercare.

On the day of your surgery, your surgeon will draw extremely detailed and precise lines on the targeted area(s) They will be specific to you and be a replica of your anatomy. The markings will then identify the location where the surgical shaping will take place. You will then be comfortable and prepared to undergo the procedure.

During Vaser Liposuction Surgery

Vaser Lipo can be performed with a local anaesthetic with mild sedation or with general anaesthetic. The method you choose for sedation will generally depend on the extent of your procedure and the amount of areas to be contoured. Your surgeon will be discussing this during your consultation.

The procedure of liposculpture involves a number of steps:

Saline solution

To begin, the treatment area(s) are filled with a tumescent anaesthetic solution. This assists in shrinking the blood vesselsand, in turn, decreasing blood loss and post surgery bruising. It also makes it easier to break up the fatty tissue with Vaser ultrasound energy.

Ultrasonic energy

Small probes are then used to transmit an ultrasonic wave, which splits and emulsifies the fatty tissue between muscle and skin. This unique process ensures other vital tissues are left intact resulting in faster recovery times. This procedure specifically targets the desired area , and permits the surgeon to take out the fat as well as etching your contours to simulate a naturally toned and defined physique.


The liquefied fat is then removed using a very small hollow cannula made of metal (via small, precise incisions that measure between 3 and 4 millimeters in diameter thus scarring is minimal) which is then inserted and directed through the area of fluidized fat. The cannula will then remove the fat through using suction and is often used in conjunction with a massage. After that, your specially trained Vaser surgeon gentle creates the desired contours out of the muscle tissues to give you an energised and defined body.

The remaining fat is eliminated naturally by your body after surgery, which gives you the final outcome of a more toned body during your healing process.

Vaser Liposuction is the surgical treatment of fat that is removed from specific parts on the body. The Vaser Liposculpture procedure is precisely targeted that it can be utilized on areas that traditional Lipo does not treat.

The most frequent fat removal zones are:

Chest or bust
Lower and upper back
Flanks and waist
Outside and inside thighs

While the process of healing is different for everyone, Vaser Liposuction does involve more extensive aftercare that traditional Liposuction. The more effort you put into your recovery, the better the results you will get Your final outcome may not be known until two or three months following your procedure. The most effective aftercare plan includes a very dedicated utilization of custom-designed body compression garments as well as post-procedure ultrasound treatment, lymphatic massage, exercise and nutrition.

The areas that you’ve treated will look fantastic and retain their sculpted appearance for the duration of with the same amount of weight. If you increase your weight, you’ll generally gain it in areas other than those that were treated.
Post-Operative Recovery

Incision area

There could be some fluid leakage from the area of incisions for the first day or two following the procedure. This is referred to as the result of tumescent fluid, which is the result of local anaesthetic. It may be blood-tinged that is normal, so do not be alarmed however any observable signs must be brought to the attention of your doctor.

After 7 days of your procedure, based on the location treated, you will have an assessment of your wounds to ensure your sutures , which will eventually dissolve. Avoid getting the incision area that is wet because a warm, humid area can be a breeding ground for bacteria and could cause an infection.


You’ll leave the theatre wearing your custom-made compression garment on, and you will have to wear this continuously until you receive a recommendation from your surgeon that you may take off the piece. Be aware that if you take off your bespoke liposuction garment before receiving your medical advice, that you are not experiencing optimal outcomes.

Bruising / Swelling

You can expect some bruising, swelling and pain after your procedure. Some swelling might persist for several months. It could also be that you feel you’ve lost your senses in the areas you’ve treated it’s normal and not something to worry about. When nerves begin to regenerate feeling and sensation should be restored to normal.


Following your surgery, you can expect some minor, and easily controlled with your medication prescribed by your doctor discomfort. This will last for a very short period with the majority of patients walking around with ease after a week or two. Be aware that you may need some assistance during the first 24 to 48 hours following surgery. A pain medication is prescribed to control any discomfort, however, if you begin to feel pain that is severe call us right away. We strongly advise that you avoid taking any aspirin-containing medications for the first week after surgery.
Short-Term Aftercare


In the case of many insurers, your car insurance will be void for 24 to 48 hours following the time you have had a general anaesthetic that was administered. After this time we would advise against driving for seven to ten days as you may find some movements become limited as the brusing and swelling goes down.

Physical Activities

Vaser Liposuction surgery will require minimal downtime. This means that it is possible to resume an easy daily routine within a few days after your procedure – depending on the area that is treated. We suggest that you take at minimum a week off from work so that you can recover completely. Within the next two or three weeks, the areas you have treated are likely to remain sensitive, and strenuous physical activities should be restricted. During the time you’ll gradually resume activities like light lifting and sex. The surgeon will provide an exact list of tasks you can take on depending on the area of your treatment, during your consultation.


After your surgery, you will have had an individualized Liposculpture compression suit that is an essential aspect of healing. The garment needs to be worn for four to six weeks, as directed by your doctorto speed up healing, reduce swelling and in the end, to ensure an ideal contour for the areas you have treated.
Long-Term aftercare

For optimal results, we recommend that your post-operative care will include a customized treatment in Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) Massage. We work very closely to work with an MLD specialist if you choose to incorporate it into your recovery.

MLD Massage

For optimal results, we suggest taking a course of Massage for Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) Massage which assists in speeding up the healing process, reduces all swelling, or build-up of fluid within the body, and assists to get rid of any remaining toxic substances.

The MLD massage method can be applied following Vaser Liposuction within 48 hours following the procedure, to help accelerate the recovery process. It incorporates an ultrasound treatment which is followed by a manual massage. By manipulating the lymph at dermal and epidermal joints (1-2mm deep, the thickness of four sheets of paper) this technique assists in the body’s process and helps eliminate excess fluid from deeper layers, as well as the shallow spaces in negative and shallow depths. MLD improves skin retraction and reduces muscle stiffness, thus increasing your mobility immediately post-surgery and also has a therapeutic, anti-inflammatory effect on tissues.

Physical Activities

After 6 weeks you should be fully recovered and ready to undertake more strenuous and physical exercise , similar to you would with jogging or heavier lifting. If you’re still experiencing discomfort, or are not confident about returning to a more vigorous routine, you should discuss this with your surgeon for liposculpture who will be happy to talk about your issues with you.
