During Vaser Liposuction Surgery

Even with a healthy lifestyle and regular exercise, it is possible to often see pockets of fat difficult to get rid of. While this is completely normal and safe, many seek to remove these fat pockets through surgical procedures, to make way of a more slender and defined silhouette.

Vaser Liposuction could help you in this goal, by improving your natural features and creating a more defined and toned physique.

Vaser Liposuction or Liposculpture is a highly advanced body sculpting cosmetic procedure which uses a particular technique for removing fat to contour and sculpt your body. Depending on the sculpting level desired, the surgeon performs high definition, mid definition or standard Vaser Liposuction.

What’s the procedure?

Vaser Liposuction offers minimally-invasive ultra-modern ultrasound technology that can precisely target and remove unwanted fat.

Making use of the ultrasound energy and the heat created by the vaser probe the surgeon can strategically melt the fat prior to getting it removed, resulting in far better results than traditional liposuction, where the fat is not melted.

Because of this, Vaser Liposuction is considered far superior than traditional liposuction.

Creates more defined muscles in the calves, stomach and arm muscles, as well as removing any excess amount of fat
The tightening of loose skin can occur in delicate, small places like under the under the chin

Vaser Liposuction is also referred to as Ultrasonic Liposuction because of the ultrasonic energies and technology applied this procedure is a state of the art, minimally invasive fat removal procedure. The ultrasound energy targets undesirable fat, while also preserving vital tissues such as nerves, connective tissue, blood vessels and Collagen to accelerate healing. By removing both the layers of fat and the deep ones around muscle groups, it boosts the visible appearance of the well-toned muscles below. The result is a reshaped body that is more defined and sculpted . This gives the appearance of a toned, slim and shapely appearance.

For the best results it is imperative that your surgeon is specially trained in VASER Hi Def Liposuction and you can also receive a more refined version of Liposuction that has no added shaping.

Before Vaser Liposuction Surgery

After your initial consultation, you will consult together with your Vaser Liposuction physician to go over your expectations and the potential results. At your initial consultation, you’ll be weighed – you should have a BMI of less than 28 – and then measured for the custom-made garment you will need for your follow-up program.

On the day of your procedure your surgeon will draw precise and precise markings on the targeted area(s) The markings are unique to your physique and will recreate your anatomy. The markings will indicate where the cutting will occur. The patient will be comfortable and prepared for the surgery.

The procedure is performed during Vaser Liposuction Surgery

Vaser Lipo is a procedure that can be done using local anaesthetics and minimal sedation, or under general anaesthetic. The method used to sedate will usually depend of the size of the procedure and the amount of areas to be contoured. Your surgeon will be discussing this during your consultation.

There are several steps involved in liposculpture surgery:

Saline solution

To begin, the treatment area(s) are filled with a tumescent anaesthetic solution. This assists in shrinking the blood vessels, consequently decreasing blood loss and post surgery bruising. It also makes it easier to break down the fat tissue by using Vaser the ultrasound’s energy.

Ultrasonic energy

Small probes are then used for transmitting an wave that breaks up 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 is specifically targeted at the area you want to target and allows your surgeon to eliminate the fat and etch your contours in order to give you a slim and well-defined physique.


The liquefied fat is then removed using a very small hollow cannula made of metal (via extremely precise cuts that range from 3 to 4mm in size which means that scarring is not as severe) that is then placed and guided through the area of emulsified fat. The cannula then gently removes the fat by suction technology and is often utilized in conjunction with massage techniques. Your specialist-trained Vaser surgeon gently creates the desired contours from your muscles to achieve an energised and defined body.

Any remaining fat is excreted in a natural way by your body after surgery, giving the final result of a more well-trained body in your healing process.

Vaser Liposuction is the removal of fat from certain parts within the human body. The Vaser Liposculpture procedure is so precise that it can be performed on areas that traditional Lipo does not treat.

The most commonly used fat removal zones are:

Chest or bust
Upper and lower back
Flanks and waist
Both the inner and outside thighs

Although the process of recovery will differ for each patient, Vaser Liposuction does involve greater aftercare than traditional Liposuction. The more effort you put into the process of recovery the better your results will be and the final result will not be known for a few months following the procedure. A good aftercare regimen involves a strict utilization of custom-designed body compression garments, along with post-procedure ultrasound, lymphatic massage and correct exercise and nutrition.

The areas that you’ve treated will appear great and maintain their sculptured appearance for the duration of exactly the same size. If you add weight, you’ll generally gain it in areas other than those that were treated.
Post-Operative Recovery


You may experience some fluid leakage from the incision areas on the first day or two following your procedure. This is called tumescent fluid and is the result of local anaesthetic. It might be bloody that is normal, so do not be alarmed but any sign of it is something that should be brought to attention of the clinic.

After 7 days of your surgery, depending on the region treated the area will undergo a wound check to assess your sutures , which will eventually disappear. Make sure to not get the incision wet as a warm moist space can harbour bacteria and cause an infection.


After leaving the theatre, you’ll be returned wearing your custom-made compression garment placed in place. You will need to wear it for a long time until you receive a recommendation from your surgeon that you may remove the item. Be aware that if you cease wearing your bespoke liposuction garment prior to the time you receive your advice, that you are not experiencing optimal results.

Bruising / Swelling

You can expect some bruising, swelling and discomfort after the treatment; swelling can linger for several months. There is a possibility that you’ve lost feeling in the areas treated but this is normal and should not be something to worry about. As nerves begin regenerate, feeling and sensation will return to normal.


Following your surgery, you can expect to experience some mild, and easily controlled with the prescribed medication, discomfort. The discomfort will last only a short time, with most patients getting up and walking about with ease after a day or two. However, be aware that you may need some assistance during the first 24-48 hours following surgery. The doctor will prescribe pain medication to ease any discomfort, however, if you begin to feel pain that is severe be sure to contact us right away. We recommend that you avoid taking any medications containing aspirin one week after surgery.
Short-Term Aftercare


With many insurers your car insurance will not be covered for 24-48 hours following the time you have had a general anaesthetic injected. After that, we’d advise you to avoid driving, for approximately seven to ten days, as you may find some of your movements restricted while the brusing and swelling goes down.

Physical Activity

Vaser Liposuction surgery will require minimal downtime. This means that it is possible to resume your normal routine within a couple of days of your procedure – dependent on the region that is which is being treated. We recommend taking at least a week off from work to enable you to recover completely. Over the next two to three weeks, your treatment areas might remain extremely sensitive and strenuous physical exercises should be avoided. Over this period, you will gradually resume activities like light lifting and sexual activities. Your surgeon will provide you with an exact list of things you can do, depending on the area of your treatment in your consultation.


Following your procedure, you’ll receive a bespoke Liposculpture compression garment that is an essential part of the healing process. The garment is required to be worn for between four-six weeks, as advised by your doctor, to aid the healing process, decrease swelling and, most importantly help ensure an even contour to your treated areas.
Long-Term aftercare

For optimal results, we recommend to ensure that your long-term postoperative care will also included a tailored course that includes manual lymphatic Drainage (MLD) Massage. We are in close contact to work with an MLD specialist should you decide to include this in your recovery.

MLD Massage

For the best results, we recommend making an investment in a program of Massage for Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) Massage which assists in speeding up the recovery process, eliminates every swelling and buildup of liquid within the body, and assists to get rid of any remaining waste products.

The MLD massage method can be applied following Vaser Liposuction in as little as 48 hours following your procedure to speed up your recovery. It is a combination of ultrasound therapy that is followed by a manual massage. By manipulating the lymph at Dermal-Epidermal Junction (1-2mm deep, which is the thickness of 4 pages of newspaper) the technique aids the body process and eliminate excess fluid from the deep layers as well as from shallow depths in negative and shallow depths. MLD ensures better skin retraction, lessens muscle stiffness, thus making your post-surgery mobility more efficient and provides an anti-inflammatory, therapeutic impact on tissues.

Physical Activity

After 6 weeks , you’ll be fully recovered and able to engage in more vigorous and physical exercise as easily as you would with jogging or heavier lifting. If you’re still experiencing discomfortor not confident about returning to a more physical routine please discuss this with your liposculpture surgeon who will gladly talk about your issues with you.
