VASER Liposuction

VASER Liposuction or VASER lipo is a minimally invasive treatment to contour and shape the body, normally performed under local anaesthetic without the need for an overnight hospital stay. As one of the UK's leading providers of the treatment, we’re proud to have some of the most recognised VASER experts performing highly specialised forms of the treatment, designed around the needs of our individual male and female patients.

We perform over 1,200 minimally invasive liposuction and body contouring procedures a year and, combined, our Doctors perform the highest number of VASER liposuction procedures in the UK. Our expert VASER Doctors - Dr Dennis WolfDr Grant Hamlet, Dr Vlok and Dr Ravi Jain - are pioneers of the method and have huge experience in harmonising body proportions.

We tailor-make each procedure, meaning you'll always be given our full attention and we will work hard to ensure you receive the kind of results you want – whether it’s an athletic, masculine figure through liposuction for men - VASER Hi-Def, or more subtle, feminine curves. 

“Subtle enough to be undetectable, significant enough to make a real difference - the holy grail of cosmetic surgery.” *

Advantages of VASER Liposuction:

  • VASER Lipo does not require general anaesthetic
  • Minimally invasive – no damage to other body tissues
  • Minimal risk of bleeding, bruising and discomfort
  • Minimal downtime – VASER Lipo is a walk-in-walk-out procedure
  • Less scarring, less bruising
  • Stimulates collagen production, resulting in tighter skin for many patients, while conventional Liposuction may occasionally result in sagging skin

What is VASER Lipo?

VASER Lipo is a specialised and minimally invasive fat removal and body contouring procedure. In contrast to traditional liposuction, VASER Lipo affords patients the sculpting experience no amount of exercise of dieting can achieve by itself with ultimate precision and minimal downtime.

VASER (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) uses the most advanced ultrasound technology to breakdown fat cells, which are then removed from your body through a suction process. VASER Lipo (also referred to as Vaser liposelection or Ultrasound Liposuction) is a suitable procedure for both men and women.

The ultrasound energy only targets fat cells, leaving surrounding tissues undamaged, and involves minimal downtime. Our experience tells us that VASER Lipo is the most effective minimally invasive method of removing unwanted fat from your body, creating a defined and sculpted area.

Where Can You Have VASER Lipo?

VASER Liposuction body areas

VASER Liposuction Body Areas

Thighs (inner and outer) - Stomach/Abdomen - Breasts - Buttocks - Flanks - Arms (Bingo Wings) - Chin - Back - Chest - Neck - Knees - male chest reduction (gynecomastia)

The Problem 

Some areas of the body are predisposed to store fat that seems impossible to rid of through exercise and diet alone. Even if we are otherwise healthy, these areas can make us look out of shape or lack toning. Sometimes, it can be difficult to achieve an athletic appearance on the figure, in spite of thorough workout regimes. 

The VASER Lipo Procedure 

VASER Lipo is a minimally invasive procedure, performed under local anaesthetic. A small probe is used to transmit the sound energy and liquefy fat cells prior to removal through a gentle suction process. It is a less invasive procedure than traditional Liposuction.

Because the treatment is so advanced, there are several different varients designed to give precise results, depending on what you want. VASER Hi-Def and VASER 4D are particularly popular with men looking to achieve athletic toning and defined muscles while VASER 360 is a specialist technique to address the legs circumferentially with no irregularities. 

VASER Lipo Results 

Improved overall shape and contours of the body. Standard VASER results are very subtle and natural-looking, with areas of fat removed. For those who prefer a more athletic, sculpted look, VASER Hi-Def or VASER Mid-Def may be better options.

Many patients see results straight away. However, the improved overall appearance of the treated areas will become prominent in the months following the procedure. The treatment can help remove stubborn areas of fat but cannot rid of excessive amounts of bulging skin, for which an abdominoplasty will often be better suited. 

Recovery / Downtime

The VASER Lipo procedure involves minimal downtime and you can get back to your daily routine almost immediately, depending on which area you have targeted. The small incisions made during the procedure will not require stitches.

However, because there may be some bruising and swelling, we advise that you wait a couple of weeks before you hit the gym or do any rigorous physical activity. To help speed-up recovery, we usually suggest a course of MLD Massage after your treatment. 

Vaser Liposuction aftercare regime following both VASER Hi-Def and VASER Mid-Def is important and does require some commitment from you. Further information will be given about this during your pre-treatment consultation with the Doctor.

Vaser Liposuction Treatment


  • Am I suitable?

    The treatment is best suited towards those with stubborn, distinct areas of fat around the body that just won’t budge, no matter how much exercise or dieting is undertaken. 

    When you lose weight, is it usually most noticeable on your face and upper body, leaving behind more resistant areas, such as the hips, buttocks, thighs and abdomen?

    Fat distribution can be incredibly uneven, leaving some areas more out of proportion than others. Diet and exercise can only do so much for most people. VASER Lipo can help adults of all ages and most parts of the body affected by stubborn body fat.

    VASER Liposuction is a highly successful area specific fat reduction treatment. It improves the balance of distribution of fatty tissue around your body, for a more aesthetically pleasing profile.

    Although liposuction can often provide very substantial improvements, it is not a weight-loss technique, or a solution for obesity. It is also not an effective treatment for cellulite nor will it help those who have excessive or bulging areas of skin, for which we would recommend an abdominoplasty treatment. We may ask you for your height and weight to calculate your BMI to ensure that you are within the ranges suitable for minimally-invasive liposuction.

    Ideally, any treatment should be viewed as a compliment to regular exercise and good diet, and not the replacement of a healthy lifestyle.

    For more information click on - VASER 360.

  • Does the procedure hurt?

    VASER Lipo is carried out under local anaesthetic, so you’ll feel no pain during the treatment. If you are feeling anxious, we can also offer sedation to help ease your nerves.

  • How long does the procedure take?

    This will depend on the number and size of areas to be treated, but generally, the VASER Lipo procedure lasts between 1 and 2 hours.

  • How long will the results last?

    The results will last as long as you maintain your weight. It is advised that you follow a healthy diet and exercise plan to maintain the results.

  • What happens if I gain weight after VASER Liposuction?

    Although it is highly recommended to try and maintain your weight after your treatment, it is possible to gain up to 3-4 kilos before you notice any obvious change in the treated area. With VASER Lipo, superficial fat and fat cells are removed, and as the body doesn’t readily make new fat cells past puberty, the results are more or less permanent. Any mild weight fluctuations are therefore not noticed as the extra fat is either immediately processed or evenly distributed around you body.

  • Are there any side effects of VASER Liposuction?

    VASER exemplifies the safest and most effective tool used for liposelection and body contouring. However, the skills and expertise of your surgeon are what count in the success and results of the procedure, as well as your chances of any complications.

  • How soon will I see the results?

    Many patients will see results straight away. However, the appearance of the treated areas will show the most improvement about 5-6 weeks post procedure.

  • Is VASER Lipo worth it?

    For those who are serious about sculpting their figure and committed to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, VASER Lipo is second-to-none in terms of its precision and results achievable. Our Doctors are pioneers of VASER Lipo in terms of their skills and techniques.
    Less invasive than traditional liposuction and offering minimum downtime, VASER Lipo gives a body sculpting experience that may be very difficult to achieve from diet and exercise alone and can be used on fat stubborn areas of the body including the abdomen, thighs and upper arms.
    However it is important to remember that VASER Lipo is not a weight loss solution and is therefore not appropriate for those looking for a quick alternative to a healthy lifestyle. At The Private Clinic, our Doctors look closely at your body shape to ensure you are a good candidate and that the results will be worth it for you.
