The Private Clinic was one of the UK’s first aesthetic centres to introduce VASER Hi-Def; a pioneering body contouring treatment to sculpt and define muscles for an athletic result. We are proud to work with one of the UK’s most respected pioneers of the method, Vaser Liposuction Surgeon, Dr Dennis Wolf, BSc(Hons), MBBCh, MRCS, DO-HNS, GMC Number: 4773959 who works from our London Harley Street clinic.

We are also still one of very few clinics in the UK to be certified to perform the revolutionary Vaser Hi-Def treatment.

What is VASER Hi-Def and How does it work?

Assisted High Definition LipoSculpture, or VASER Hi DefTM is an advanced body sculpting technique that creates an athletic, sculpted appearance. It works through the removal of both superficial and deep fat that surrounds muscle groups to enhance the visibility of underlying toning and musculature.

What to Expect

The Private Clinic has been treating patients for over 35 years with thousands of people placing their trust in us each year. We pride ourselves on being able to offer a personalised service. We have a team of friendly nurses and expert surgeons who understand the importance of this decision and will support you throughout your journey with us.

VASER Hi-Def Treatment

Firstly, local anaesthetic is administered to the chosen area(s) to numb the site. A VASER probe, which is around 3-mm in diameter, then emits an ultrasonic fat-specific wave, which breaks down the fat cells.

The Doctor is then able to sculpt and define the underlying muscles through a gentle suction process which causes minimum damage to surrounding tissues which causes minimum damage to surrounding tissues.


After Vaser Hi-Def Treatment

Because muscle structures are chiselled and the underlying musculature is made to be more visible and well defined, the results of VASER Hi-Def procedure are highly defined and sculpted. The treatment is often chosen to create strong-looking pectorals, defined upper arms, demarcated abdominal flanks, an athletic six pack or a strong, defined upper and lower back.

The results of your VASER Hi-Def Lipo sculpturing are usually best seen after a couple of weeks. We may advise for you to undertake a course of MLD Massage to aid your vaser hi def recovery, though this will be discussed fully prior to and after treatment. We offer  Body Ballancer® treatments in some of our clinics which we recommend a course of to help reduce swelling caused by inflammation, bring healthy oxygenated blood to the upper dermal layers of the skin and encourage overall scar tissue repair.

Your treated areas should retain their sculptured appearance for as long as you remain the same weight.
