Liposuction and body contouring procedures are our areas of excellence and we pride ourselves on offering a range of multi-award-winning liposuction treatments which can all be tailored specifically to the requirements of our patients.
Types of Liposuction we offer
Surgical liposuction is a surgical procedure where unwanted and excess fat is removed from your body to leave you with a more defined shape. It can be combined with an abdominoplasty which will help to remove any excess skin too for complete body sculpting procedure. Surgical liposucture requires more downtime than vaser liposuction but for the right patient, liposuction can be the best procedure for the kind of results required. For instance, larger patients may not be suitable for VASER Lipo.
This is the base of all Vaser liposuction procedures. Advanced ultrasound is used to destroy fat prior to its removal which means only the fat is removed and no surrounding tissues are damaged in the process. This means bruising and scaring is minimised and the whole procedure is performed under local anaesthetic. You will be able to return home the same day as the procedure and return back to your normal activities relatively quickly. Vaser liposuction is most commonly used on difficult-to-tone regions of the body like the back of the arms, flanks, thighs, abdomen, and jaw line, though it can be used on a huge range of areas.
Vaser Mid-Def is a step between Vaser and Hi-Def. The procedure will give you a more toned appearance than standard vaser liposuction but with less intensity than you would get with Hi-Def. The procedure is very similar to the other vaser procedure with fat being removed from around the muscle to create shape and definition but the results are often a little more natural and toned down compared to the Hi-Def.
Vaser Hi-Def is a more advanced technique used to sculpt and tone areas into an athletic appearance. The process removes both superficial and deep layers of fat around the muscles which creates toned appearance with intense definition. Similar to Vaser it can be used on all areas of the body but the results are best on areas with underlying muscles like the abdomen, chest, waist, back, buttocks, arms, flanks and thighs.
Vaser 4D is a step up from Vaser Hi-Def and is a highly targeted body sculpting technique that not only removes pockets of fat, but adds them to areas creating full highlighted muscles. The result is a naturally-athletic appearance that is highly toned and visibly defined. This technique is most commonly used on the torso but it can also be effective of the upper arms, buttocks, back and upper legs but due to the intensity of the results it means patients will need to be assessed on a case-by-case basis to establish if it will achieve the look you desire.
Vaser 360 is a liposuction technique for the upper legs. It focuses on the entire circumference of one area in one single treatment. This means that the thighs, knees and buttocks can all be treated at the same time.
If you have smaller areas of fat then you may be suitable for MicroLipo which instead uses tiny Microcannular tubes varying from 0.9mm to 3mm in width. These don’t destroy the fat initially like vaser does but it due to their small size it is able to extract the fat with extreme precision and minimal damage. Here at The Private Clinic our MicroLipo specialist uses a tumescent technique which involves injecting large volumes of local anaesthetic into the area being treated which separates the fat cells from the surrounding area – again minimising bruising and pain during recovery.
