What are the advantages of VASER Liposuction?

  • Vaser liposuction is not as invasive as traditional liposuction.
  • Minimal downtime – VASER Lipo is a walk-in-walk-out procedure with no overnight hospital stay.
  • Vaser is carried out as a local anaesthetic with sedation, there is no general anaesthetic.
  • There is a faster recovery
  • It is less traumatic than surgical lipo
  • Vaser stimulates collagen production, resulting in tighter skin for many patients.
  • Vaser liposuction is especially effective in areas such as the buttocks, hips, thighs, abdomen, upper arms, chest, neck and knees.

What to Expect

The Private Clinic has been treating patients for over 35 years with thousands of patients 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.

  • Consultation
  • Pre-Operation
  • The Procedure
  • Aftercare

The Consultation

Your vaser liposuction treatment journey will start with a consultation with one of our experienced vaser liposuction surgeons.
At your consultation, your surgeon will go through the vaser liposuction procedure in detail and examine the areas that you are concerned about to assess your suitability for vaser liposuction surgery and advise what may or may not be possible based on your existing shape and skin and fat levels.
Your surgeon will then discuss:

  • Your medical history
  • Your expectations from surgery
  • Risks and Complications of Vaser Liposuction surgery
  • Aftercare

Following your consultation, you will be introduced to your dedicated patient coordinator who will be your point of contact should you wish to proceed with vaser liposuction surgery.

Pre-Operative Advice

In the interests of patient safety all our patients are assessed against our patient selection criteria. Following your consultation and review of your past medical history, the physician or preoperative nurse will choose any pre-operative tests considered to be appropriate, most of which are routine blood tests.

Vaser Liposuction Surgery

You will be given an allocated time to arrive at hospital for your vaser liposuction procedure. This is usually an hour or 2 before your procedure start time.

Once admitted:

  • The nursing team to perform checks and prepare you for surgery.
  • You will meet with your surgeon again to go over what is going to happen and answer any questions or concerns that you may have.
  • Pre-operative photos will be taken of the areas to be treated
  • You will be marked up with a surgical pen.

The procedure:

  • You will then be taken to theatre where local anaesthetic and sedation is administered.
  • The surgeon will make tiny incision in the targeted areas, and infuses a saline solution mixed with lidocaine and epinephrine to help shrink blood vessels and numb the area to be treated.
  • A small patented probe will then be inserted into the incisions which will emits ultrasonic waves to selectively break up the fat deposits, leaving important tissues relatively intact.
  • Once the fatty tissue is emulsified, it can be removed through the small incision with massage or by using a controlled suction device.
  • Any remaining fatty tissue can then be reshaped to the patient’s natural body contours.
  • The areas are then bandaged up and a drain may be inserted to help with excess fluid in the initial couple of days post-procedure.
  • You will then be fitted into a support garment to help reduce swelling and returned to a recovery room to recover from the sedation.
  • You will be required to stay after your procedure for a couple of hours to ensure that you are medically well. You will then be released by your surgeon with an aftercare plan detailing your recovery.
  • There are several different variants 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 Liposuction procedures usually take 1-2 hours, but this will vary depending on the number and size of areas that are being treated.

After your vaser liposuction procedure

Downtime following Vaser Liposuction is minimal and you can get back to your daily routine quite quickly. The small incisions made during the procedure will not require stitches. We recommend taking up to 2-5 days off work depending on the areas being treated.
However, because there may be some bruising and swelling, it’s best to wait two weeks before you can start light exercise (swimming, walking uphill and cycling) and more strenuous exercise around 4-5 weeks. Flying is not advised for up to 2 weeks.
The Vaser Liposuction aftercare regime following all Vaser procedures including Vaser Hi-Def and Vaser Mid-Def is important and does require some commitment from you.
Following your Vaser Liposuction procedure you will be provided with a postoperative instruction sheet and any medication that is prescribed by your surgeon or doctor to take during the following week to aid your recovery.
A follow-up appointment with a clinic nurse will be made to check your wounds which usually takes place approximately 4-14 days following your liposuction procedure. You will then be asked to return to see your surgeon around 6 weeks following your procedure for them to assess your vaser liposuction treatment results.

  • vaser liposuction back lipo toned

    Vaser Liposuction for the back

    Weight gain can occur in all areas of the body and many patients find themselves with stubborn areas of back fat that are a challenge to loose. There are 5 common areas of back fat that can be effectively removed with vaser liposuction area of fat around the upper portion of the back include the buffalo hump which is the lump of fat underneath the neck, the infra-scapular fat which is where fat rolls are seen underneath the bra strap, Posterior axillary fat is fat around the armpit area, Posterior waist fat is still located on the back sitting just above the hips and the lumbo-sacral fat pad is a stubborn area of fat located at the base of the back just above the tailbone. Vaser liposuction is a great procedure to help target the excess fat on the back resulting in a more toned appearance with no rolls bra strap bulges.

  • vaser liposuction abdomen tummy

    Vaser Liposuction for the abdomen / tummy

    Vaser liposuction for the tummy / abdomen area is a more minimally invasive option compared to surgical procedures like a tummy tuck. If your problem is excess fat rather than sagging skin then vaser liposuction can offer remarkable body contouring results resulting in a more toned and defined stomach.

  • vaser liposuction male torso abs tummy 1

    Vaser liposuction for male chest reduction

    An oversized or undefined stomach is a popular area that male patients request treatment for. Vaser Liposuction is ideal for men who wish to help reduce stubborn areas of fat from their torso or abdomen which exercise and diet were otherwise resistant too. We also offer Vaser Hi-Def liposuction which can create an athletic, sculpted appearance which removes both superficial and deep fat that surrounds muscle groups to enhance the visibility of underlying toning and musculature.

  • vaser liposuction female flanks love handles hips waist

    Vaser Liposuction for love handles or flanks

    Loosing excess fat from your love handles or flanks can be very difficult and you will often not see much of a result from exercise and diet alone. Vaser liposuction is a great treatment to target those stubborn areas of fat revealing a smaller and more defined appearance to the waist.

  • vaser liposuction buttocks lipo toned

    Vaser Liposuction for the buttocks and hips

    Some patients find that stubborn areas of fat tend to target their lower body, in particular their buttocks and hips. Storing fat in this area can really alter your figure and can make finding certain types of clothes to fit well a big struggle. Vaser liposuction is ideal for the buttock, buttocks crease and hips as it is able to target the specific area removing the unwanted fat and sculpting your body to achieve a more defined body shape without the need for fat transfer.

  • vaser liposuction thighs toned upper legs

    Vaser Liposuction for the inner and outer thighs

    Vaser liposuction is very effective at providing all round contour to the inner and outer thigh areas. Stubborn fat in the thighs can be tricky to reduce and can often cause difficulty when finding clothing to fit correctly. Removing this stubborn area of fat instantly gives your upper legs a slimmer and more defined appearance with many patients finding they have gone down a dress size too.

  • vaser liposuction knees ankles lower leg

    Vaser Liposuction for the knees and ankles

    Storing stubborn areas of fat around the knees or ankles can be very distressing especially if the rest of your body is otherwise toned. Vaser liposuction to the knees or ankles can result in shapelier and contoured lower legs.

FAQs

  • What is the difference between Smart Lipo / Laser Lipo and Vaser Lipo?

    Smart Lipo or Laser Lipo is a different type of liposuction to vaser liposuction. Although they are both used to remove stubborn areas of fat and to contour the body shape they both use different techniques. Smart liposuction which is also referred to as laser liposuction or laser lipolysis uses laser technology but vaser liposuction uses ultrasound technology to target the fat. Smart lipo is newer than vaser liposuction but we believe that Vaser Liposuction is still the most advanced and effective form of liposuction which is why this is the only type that The Private Clinic offer in our clinics. Vaser Liposuction uses ultrasonic technology which allows for specific areas of fat to be treated (Vaser liposelection). Due to this, the surrounding body tissues are then left untouched which results in far less bruising and swelling and a shorter recovery time.

  • What areas can be treated with Vaser Liposuction?

    • Neck / Chin
    • Upper Arms
    • Upper Back / Lower Back
    • Male Chest
    • Abdomen / Tummy
    • Flanks / Hips
    • Outer thighs / Inner thighs
    • Knees
    • Buttocks crease

  • How much does VASER Liposuction cost?

    The cost of a Vaser Liposuction procedure will depend on the number of areas being treated. Everyone’s Vaser Lipo procedure is different and put together as a package for the patient. Your treatment plan will be discussed at your consultation once your surgeon has seen you and knows what you wish to achieve from the procedure. Your patient coordinator will provide you with a detailed quote for your procedure and discuss our various finance packages available too. VASER Liposuction popular areas treated are abdomen (tummy) – love handles (flanks) – bra strap fat (back fat) – inner thighs – outer thighs (saddlebags) – male chest (man boobs, or moobs) – buttocks, knees – ankles (or mankles for men) – chin (double chin) – sagging jowls and arms (bingo wings).

    I work with Mr Riaz Agha, a Harley Street Plastic Consultant Surgeon at one of his private clinics. I am impressed with not only his standard and quality of work but also the care and kindness that he shows to all of his patients and team. I have worked with a huge variety of different consultants over the years but Mr Argha really stands out and I would highly recommend him to friends and family, and of course if ever I consider to have any procedures in the future.

    A really positive experience. Alex is a fantastic patient co-ordinator, so friendly and reassuring. After a few changes of plan due to Covid lockdown, I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to have Dr Fattah performing my procedure. Extremely thorough and precise from the first consultation, I really trusted him. My main aim was to restore my figure after children/breastfeeding, with a really natural look that would work with my lifestyle, gym etc. Dr Fattah really “got” this and I trusted his judgement on size of implant and placement completely. I’m absolutely delighted with the result and the aftercare support has been great – surgery follow up and then annual check ups for reassurance. Thank you team, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ?

    From the start to finish of my T-Lift procedure, I felt in good hands. The entire team at The Private Clinic were very caring and professional. Mr Falladah is an excellent surgeon, he explained everything clearly -before and during the procedure – and has a calm and reassuring manner. Because I was well-informed regarding what to expect after surgery, I was able to manage with minimal pain medication, but I’m glad I took a couple of days off work to recover. I’m really pleased with the results – a five star recommendation!

    I had preservation rhinoplasty with Dr Rochira in December 2019. I couldn’t be happier with my results. The results are very natural-looking and I feel so much more confident with my side profile. Dr Rochira is an amazing surgeon and I instantly felt comfortable. He knew exactly what I wanted and was very realistic with the results in my consultation. Thank you!

    Dr. Rochira performed a preservation rhinoplasty on me in December 2019. I trusted his suggestions for my nose and now, 9 months later, I couldn’t be happier with the results I’m seeing. I did not experience any bruising at all, only swelling around my eyes for the first couple of weeks — my nose itself took a few months to settle and I feel like it has really grown into the rest of my features. I entirely recommend this surgeon if you are looking for a natural result and an extremely pleasant experience.
