Vaser liposuction


Vaser liposuction is not only intended to remove body fat. It is designed to do so with added benefits and fewer risks. It is an actual improvement from traditional liposuction! Less pain, less downtime, and better results.

This non-invasive liposuction is perfect for fat removal in the stomach, arms, hips, legs, double chin, and neck. Ideally, patients treated with Vaser lipo technique must be in good physical condition. It is a method where they can expect to improve their figure rather than lose weight.

On top of that, this innovative solution acts as a smoothing method for the skin. It extracts excess fat and tightens the skin so that the muscles stand out better. A killer trifecta!

So, you don’t have to feel subconscious about your body anymore and wear oversized clothes to disguise it. Having an hourglass figure is possible without enduring excruciating pain.

Vaser liposuction provides precise results to get your dream body with fewer complications. So, do you wish to learn more about Vaser lipo? Keep on reading.


Vaser liposuction is a cosmetic procedure that combines liposuction techniques with ultrasound technology. It helps to break up fat cells and remove subcutaneous fatty deposits to improve the aesthetics of specific areas of the body.

VASER means Vibratory Amplification of Sound Energy by Resonance. The fat aspiration is made easier, and there is minimal disturbance to the surrounding tissues. This makes the procedure faster, gentler, less traumatic with an optimal result.

To be more precise, Vaser lipo leads to faster recovery and avoids the appearance of bruises, redness, and hematomas. Thanks to this method, the patient’s silhouette will also have a better definition.

Vaser liposuction can also enhance your musculature. Therefore, this explains why a lot of men are interested in this procedure. When excess fat is removed, the underlying muscles can stand out better. This gives the illusion of a better physique.

Beyond simply removing excess fat, the skin will also look firm and soft, without bumps or dimples. The skin retracts more quickly and evenly because the ultrasound waves stimulate the production of elastin and collagen.

Vaser Liposuction


Unlike traditional liposuction, Vaser lipo is a gentle procedure and takes place under sedation and local anaesthetic. This technique is therefore much more pleasant for the patient. Although, if you have more procedures done, general anaesthetic could be used too.

Additionally, Vaser liposuction allows for much smaller incisions than conventional liposuction. Thus, the process avoids stitches, ugly scars, and possible complications.

With Vaser lipo, micro-cannulas emitting high-frequency ultrasound vibrations are used to melt and aspirate the fat. By doing so, the post-procedure period is more straightforward, less painful, and the results are even more satisfying.

This non-invasive liposuction is a more comprehensive and efficient technique for body contouring that allows the surgeon to reshape and sculpt the remaining fat deposits into a more balanced silhouette. It is efficient like all other advanced procedures available in the world of plastic surgery. You could consider it like liposuction 2.0!

Vaser liposuction procedure is safe, reliable, and uses proven technology. The process happens under the skin and deep above the muscles, reaching specific parts smoothly. Hence, it can reach fat areas that normally are difficult to treat.

This precise technique targets extensive areas but also is meant for smaller areas and details. It can treat localized fat that may distort your body contour offering more muscle definition.

On top of that, you get the added benefits of a more toned and firmer skin appearance. The ultrasound waves allow for the skin to retract easily and mold itself smoothly over the treated area.

Vaser liposuction surgery


First of all, the surgeon will inject a mixture of saline solution, local anesthetic, and epinephrine below the skin of the treated areas. This solution allows to numb the area and shrink the blood vessels, limiting the risk of hematomas and bruising.

Then, the surgeon introduces a cannula through small incisions. This is a fine hollow tube with a rounded tip and perforated ends. The device is introduced doing back and forth movements. Also, high-frequency ultrasound waves (vibration) are used to break up the fat cells.

Vaser liposuction method helps to dislodge the fat layer and separate it from the surrounding tissues. Also, it “melts” or liquefies the fat cells of the superficial layers speeding the process. Then, the surgeon will connect the cannula to a negative pressure suction system (vacuum) to suck it out.

Following liposuction, the multiple tunnels created by the cannula create a “honeycomb” inside the suctioned fat area. This will allow the skin to retract perfectly and smoothly to its new contour following surgery.

During the intervention, removing the deep and/or intermediate fat layer is necessary to avoid irregularities. But in rare cases, superficial liposuction may be appropriate too. Although, this will not directly improve cellulite or orange-peel appearance.

In some cases, this excess of fat can be fantastic for lipofilling. This is an excellent method for filling certain parts of the body with autologous fat. The cosmetic surgeon may use it, for example, for breast augmentation without a prosthesis or improve flat buttocks.

  • It facilitates the shaping of delicate, flabby areas, improving the body contours.
  • Vaser liposuction is beneficial for the treatment of gynecomastia without visible scars.

Vaser liposuction is not a weight-loss solution!  It is a treatment for patients who preferably have reached or are near their ideal weight (nearly 30%).

It is perfect for those who wish to modify the shape and volume of stubborn fat areas. These fat deposits are really hard to eliminate with diet and exercise alone.

Vaser lipo can improve the abdominal area in both men and women with amazing results. It is a permanent solution since it does not allow the reoccurrence of fat accumulation. In other words, the treated area remains fat-free.

Although, you must consider that the remaining fat cells could increase in size and volume. Also, if you gain weight, it can cause your body to store the new fat in a different location. So, it is better to adopt a healthy lifestyle and avoid weight fluctuations to maintain the results and a nicely shaped body contour. You don’t want bulges on untreated areas!

Finally, your surgeon will make sure that you don’t have severe sagging skin or skin folds. After all, outcomes can vary depending on skin quality. Good skin elasticity is essential to ensure good results! Otherwise, you might not be an ideal candidate for liposuction at all. Even with the skin-tightening properties of Vaser lipo, severe laxity is a limitation.


Before a Vaser liposuction, the initial consultation is necessary to allow the cosmetic surgeon to learn more about the patient’s history, including medical conditions that may contraindicate surgery.

He will also make recommendations about certain medications or herbal supplements you may be on. Blood thinners, aspirin, alcohol, and ibuprofen-like medications should be avoided the day’s prior surgery to diminish bleeding and bruising. Also, you must quit smoking because it can slow your healing process.

Finally, the surgeon should walk you through the Vaser lipo process and answer all the questions you may have. Also, he should inform you about the possible risks associated with the intervention, so you make an informed decision.

An anaesthesia consultation is crucial 48 hours before the surgery, along with blood tests results. After you get clearance from your general practitioner and the anesthesiologist, you can set the day for surgery.


Vaser liposuction results are not quite immediate. You will start to see the first results after the third week. Before this time, the area appears to be swollen and bruised.

Usually, you must wait a minimum of six months to appreciate the final results. This timeframe is the minimum waiting period needed for the swelling to subside.

After that time, you will notice that there will be no more weight gain in the previously treated zones. The fat will permanently disappear if you adopt a healthy lifestyle, proper diet, and exercise.


After the Vaser lipo procedure, a compression garment is immediately put on to support the tissues and diminish the swelling. It is advised to use it for three weeks rather than six weeks, which is the standard time for traditional liposuction.

Your muscles will be sore for 7 to 14 days, and you will experience moderate pain. Don’t panic because this is perfectly normal! However, your doctor will prescribe you painkillers to ease the discomfort. Also, the incisions will drain the fluid for 18 to 24 hours.

After the procedure, you’ll need to take nearly 7-10 days of minimal activity. Although the healing process can vary from person to person, this time off work will help you rest and recover. Also, you will have to avoid sports for about a month.
