Vaser Liposuction

What is Vaser Liposuction?

Vaser is a technology which uses ultrasound waves to break the fat down without disrupting the blood vessels or nerves. Vaser helps the skin to contract better and results in less bruising and swelling.


Liposuction is a technique using a cannula and gentle suction to remove excess fat. Using the Vaser technology in combination with Liposuction would enhance the results that you would get from Liposuction alone, as it allows greater fat harvesting, less pain , and improves skin contraction post operation. Vaser Liposuction would be best performed in selected areas which are resistant to weight loss and exercise.

The most popular areas are the tummy or abdomen area, the flank area or under the arm pits. It isn’t a substitute for weight loss, but can improve contour where it is needed the most.

Together we decide what areas need to be addressed and a contour map is drawn. A customised tumescent technique is applied to each person to ensure that fluid is infused into the appropriate area to allow maximal fat harvest while still being able to assess the appearance of contour.

What is Vaser Liposuction and Recovery Time

A gentle Liposuction technique is used to remove excess fat using a feathering technique to ensure an even contour. We avoid liposuction techniques which can burn the fat or emulsify which can cause cysts and scarring.

The fat is removed from the deeper fat layer. We avoid over-removal of fat to avoid puckering and dimpling which can form when excess fat from the superficial layer is removed.

A compression garment is then worn for 4 weeks full time and 4 weeks part time. This allows the tissues to retract to take advantage of the skin’s natural elasticity. The garment will also help prevent bruising, so you can get back to life quicker.


Liposuction when performed well can sculpt the body and improve contour

Small areas can be addressed with liposuction under local anaesthetic, but bigger areas need to be performed under general anaesthetic for your safety.

The procedure is performed as day surgery which means you can go home the same day. Please allows one week for recovery and two weeks to return to heavy exercise.
