Laying down the facts about Vaser Liposuction
Here at The Private Clinic we pride ourselves on being one of the UK’s leading providers of Vaser Liposuction with our team of some of the most sought after VASER liposuction doctors performing over 7,000 Liposuction treatments. We have performed more vaser liposuction procedures than any other cosmetic surgery group in the UK to date.
As with most treatments and procedures, there are always a few myths and misconceptions all of which can be discussed and cleared up in a consultation with your doctor, but we are going to discuss some of the more frequently questioned ones right now to allow you to make a more informed decision in choosing the right treatment for you – because it’s your body.
Vaser Liposuction is suitable for anyone
Essentially yes, but there are a lot of conditions that you will need to meet in order to be the perfect candidate for liposuction – these include;
Weight – It is not safe for large amounts of fat to be removed in one treatment so we like patients to be at their ideal target weight before considering treatment.
Skin – The better condition your skin is in, the better the result you will achieve. Good elasticity means your skin will be less likely to sag. If you already have sagging skin then a surgical procedure to remove this may be more suited to you.
Smoking – If you smoke you are more likely to have complications during your recovery process including increased healing time and infections.
Good Health – Before having treatment a full medical check is carried out to rule out any potential complications during or after the procedure. Similarly, if you are feeling unwell in the lead up to your procedure you should inform your doctor as your surgery may need to be postponed to another date when you are feeling better.

You won’t gain fat again in the future
Although Vaser Liposuction does remove fat, a healthy body still needs a layer of fat cells so some will still remain in the area. As a result – if you put on weight after your procedure then the fat cells in the areas treated are just as likely to expand along with areas that have not been treated.
We recommend that you maintain a healthy weight after having the procedure to avoid losing the results of your vaser liposuction treatment.
Vaser Liposuction can get rid of Cellulite
Cellulite is made up of underlying fat deposits that push through the connective tissue beneath the skin causing a dimpled or ‘orange peel’ appearance to the skin.
As a rule, Vaser Liposuction is not designed to remove cellulite however some patients have noticed an improvement in the appearance of it. We are unable to guarantee such results and if this is the main reason why you are considering Vaser Liposuction then an alternative treatment may be more suitable for you.
Vaser Liposuction can be performed anywhere
Vaser Liposuction can be performed on a variety of areas of the body suffering from areas of stubborn fat. Popular areas include;
- Abdomen / Tummy
