You need to consider:

When you are doing your research on the best option for fat removal please consider the following;

  • Liposuction methods such as laser lipo, smart lipo will not bring you the same definitive result as Vaser liposuction or traditional liposuction/ micro liposuction
  • Look into what type of definition/shape for your tummy, pecks, hips, thighs and arms you are after? Check out the before and after photos of non-invasive lipo to be sure
  • If you are looking for a sculptured result, then Vaser or traditional liposuction (micro liposuction) are your best options
  • Don’t forget to consider the timings, often short term non-invasive lipo such as smart lipo or laser lipo methods do not show the dramatic results you are seeking
  • Lastly, ask how many times the doctors have carried out the liposuction procedure.

The Procedure

VASER Liposuction – The Procedure

What is Vaser Liposuction?

VASER Lipo is a procedure performed under local anaesthetic with sedation. A small probe is used to transmit the ultrasound energy and liquefy fat cells prior to removal through a gentle suction process. Your suitability for the procedure will be assessed by a surgeon during your consultation.

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.

There are other minimally invasive fat removal machines that exist but none of them can give you the defined and smooth outcome that Vaser liposuction can achieve.


vaser lipo back fat, vaser lipo upper back

How long after VASER liposuction do you see results?

Improved overall shape and contours of the body. Standard VASER results are natural, if you prefer a more athletic, defined or sculpted appearance, VASER Hi-Def or VASER Mid-Def may be better options for you. Your realistically achievable results will be discussed with you during your consultation with a surgeon.

Many patients see results straight away. However, the improved overall appearance 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

Downtime is minimal for VASER Liposuction and you can get back to your daily routine quite quickly. The small incisions made during the procedure will not require stitches. At The Private Clinic our medical experts recommend taking up to 2-5 days off work depending on the areas being treated. Your medical professional will advise you during your consultation. 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. See before and after photos.

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. Further information will be given about this during your pre-treatment consultation with the Doctor.

Please see our Vaser liposuction FAQs for more information about the liposuction procedure and questions that many of our patients ask us about.

When it comes to researching liposuction procedures there are a lot of words and abbreviations that may seem confusing. We have created a glossary of the most popular Cosmetic Surgery words which you can view here.

Vaser Liposuction FAQs

What is VASER Liposuction?

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 or 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.

How is Vaser Liposuction different from traditional liposuction?

Vaser Liposuctions uses high-frequency ultrasonic wave’s break up and liquefy the targeted fat without damaging the surrounding area. This result in a faster recovery compared to traditional liposuction.

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

Is Vaser Liposuction the best type of liposuction?

Vaser liposuction is one of many types of liposuction treatments that all use various devices and techniques. Other types of liposuction include traditional liposuction, laser liposuction, MPX laser and body jet liposuction to name a few. Whether Vaser Liposuction is the best type of liposuction for you is personal preference, there is no clinical evidence to prove that one type is better or safer than the other. Most modern forms of liposuction are considered to be equally safe and effective when performed by an expert surgeon or doctor.

Vaser lipo however, should not be confused with Vaser Mid or Hi def which are only a change of technique rather than tools. During a Vaser Mid Def and Hi Def procedure, multiple techniques are used for sculpting around the muscles to give a more athletic and toned appearance. These procedures require a lot more skill, expertise and specialised training making them very different from other types of liposuction. It is important to remember that not everyone trained in Vaser Liposuction is trained in Vaser Hi or Mid-Def.

Getting the best liposuction results comes down to the skill and experience of the surgeon and the aftercare carried out by both the clinic and patient. It is also important for the patient to be well informed and realistic about what results they can expect from the treatment.

Book a consultation to find out more.

Can multiple areas be treated at once with Vaser Liposuction?

It is possible to treat multiple areas during one Vaser Liposuction procedure however it is recommend that no more than 3 litres worth of fat is removed within one session.

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.

Who will perform Vaser Liposuction?

The Private Clinic has a team of expert VASER lipo Doctors and surgeons. Our team will work with you to ensure you are feeling well informed and comfortable before, during and after the procedure. You will receive one year cover for all surgical, hospital and nursing care, in case of any medical issue giving you peace of mind.

How should I prepare for Vaser Liposuction?

We recommend that you are at your ideal weight before liposuction and that you avoid taking any anti- inflammatory painkillers such as aspirin and ibuprofen for 3 weeks before your procedure. We also highly recommend that you stop smoking a month before your vaser liposuction procedure.

What happens during a Vaser Liposuction procedure?

You surgeon will firstly make special anatomic marks on the areas being treated whilst you are standing. You will then lie down on the bed and local anaesthetic will be injected into the areas being treated and sedation will be applied if required. Small micro-incisions will then be made close to the areas that are being treated and tumescent fluid will be injected in to expand the tissue layer. A small probe is then inserted that emits ultrasonic energy which vibrates and selectively breaks apart the fatty tissue on contact. A small cannula is then used in a back-and-forth motion which removes the fat with a gentle suction device.  Once complete, the incisions are closed, bandages are applied and a compression garment is placed on.

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.

Will I feel anything during the procedure?

No pain should be felt during the procedure but you may feel the surgeon working on the areas being treated which is sometimes a little uncomfortable. Some patients mention hearing a high pitched sound which actually the ultrasonic vibrations resonating in your ear drums – this is completely normal and not harmful.

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.

Do I need to be put to sleep for Vaser Liposuction?

Vaser Liposuction is usually performed under Local Anaesthetic with the option of sedatives too. The local anaesthetic will stop you feeling any pain during the procedure and the sedatives can help you feel more relaxed if you are feeling worried or anxious about it.

Can I have vaser liposuction to remove fat in my face?

Vaser Liposuction is not performed on the facial areas apart from the chin and neck. The best way to treat fat deposits under the eye for example is a blepharoplasty procedure.

How much fat can be removed with Vaser Liposuction?

Vaser Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure and instead designed to contour and shape the body and remove stubborn areas of fat. The amount of fat removed varies between procedures but no more than 4% of your body weight (about 3 litres) can be removed. If more fat removal is needed then a second procedure would be required.

Does Vaser Liposuction get rid of cellulite?

Vaser Liposuction can improve the appearance of cellulite however it is not a treatment for cellulite so this cannot be guaranteed.

Will Vaser Liposuction help me lose weight?

Vaser Liposuction is not a solution for weight loss and should not be seen as such. Vaser Liposuction is designed to remove stubborn areas of fat that no amount of exercise and healthy eating are able to reduce. To maintain the results of surgery you must continue to lead a healthy lifestyle otherwise the weight will return to other areas of the body.

How do I reshape my bottom with Vaser Liposuction?

It is easy to create a peachy bottom shape with Vaser Liposuction. The fat is removed in a way that is able to sculpt the body which can enhance your bum enough without the need for any additional fat transfer or implants.

See our before and after photos to see previous results.

Can Vaser Liposuction sculpt my body?

Vaser Liposuction is a sculpting procedure that removes stubborn fat deposits from problematic areas which as a result reveals the smooth and natural contours of your own body. If more defined contouring is required then Vaser Mid-Def, Vaser Hi-Def or Vaser 4D may be recommended which are more specialised techniques for body contouring. The Private Clinic specialises in all forms of Vaser liposuction.

Will Vaser Liposuction get rid of sagging skin?

Will I Have Tighter Skin After Vaser Liposuction?

Good skin elasticity is important for successful fat removal surgery. Vaser Liposuction only removes fat from the body, not skin so if you have excess sagging skin then you may be more suited to an alternative surgical procedure such as an arm lift, tummy tuck, thigh lift etc.

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.We recommend that you continue to lead a fit and healthy lifestyle to maximise the results of your procedure.

Are there any side effects of VASER Liposuction?

VASER Liposuction is a very popular body sculpting procedure and can deliver exemplary results. However, the skills and expertise of your treating Doctor 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.

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.

How many Vaser Liposuction procedures will I need?

In the majority of cases Vaser Liposuction treatment is performed over one session. In larger cases your treatment may be split over multiple sessions but this will be discussed at your consultation.

Why do wounds leak after Vaser Liposuction?

It is normal to experience leaking from your wounds for the first 24-48 hours. It is good for recovery as leaking will reduce swelling as your body is not holding this extra fluid. We recommend that you change your bandages regularly during this time, sleep on old sheets and wear loose and dark clothing to avoid any stains whilst you are out and about. We are available 24/7 to answer any questions you may have. You will be provided with comprehensive information before your procedure so you can rest assure that we have covered all the bases.

When can my bandages be removed after Vaser Liposuction?

Your bandages will need to be changed regularly where required for the first 2-3 days. After this time they should only need to be changed once a day. Leakage from the wounds is common after liposuction and you should aim to change your bandages once they have become dirty to keep the wound area clean. If you require help or have any questions about your bandages then please don’t hesitate to contact your surgeon or our nursing team who will be on hand for you.

How long do I need to wear the compression garment for after Vaser Liposuction?

For any treatment under the chin the garment is worn for 24 hours a day for 3 day and then nightly for 3 weeks.

For other areas such as abdomen, chest, flanks, knees, inner/outer the surgical compression garment should be kept on at all times for 3 weeks and then after this time the garment should be worn during the day (for at least 6 hours) for another 3 weeks.

Will I need to wear drains after Vaser Liposuction?

A surgical drain is a tube used to remove pus, blood or other fluids from a wound. Patients who have had significant fat removal usually from their abdomen or back may require drains to be inserted. These will remain in place for up to 5 days before being removed by the surgeon or their nursing team in clinic.

How long does swelling last for after Vaser Liposuction?

Swelling and bruising have usually resolved after 6 weeks.

To help speed-up recovery, we usually suggest a course of MLD Massages after your treatment. At our clinics in London Harley StreetManchester and Leeds we offer Body Ballancer® treatment which is a compression therapy treatment which can really help with post-liposuction recovery.

Will I have bruising after Vaser Liposuction?

You should expect bruising and swelling of the tissues in the area that has been treated but the amount of bruising will depend on your own body’s reaction to the procedure as well as size of the area treated.

What is the scarring like after Vaser Liposuction?

You will have small puncture wounds at the sites of the areas being treated. There will be more than one incision as the cannula is inserted from more than one point on the body but these tend to heal up well leaving a small undetectable mark on the skin.

What is my downtime like after vaser liposuction?

We usually advise two to three weeks of general recovery for Vaser Liposuction. Many patients are able to return to their daily activities the day after the treatment or as soon as they feel fit to do so. We recommend that you keep and go for a few walks in the first few days after the procedure as this will assist drainage of fluid. Strenuous activity involving the area that has been treated should be avoided for about a month as your body continues to heal.

How long do I need to take off work for Vaser Liposuction?

The time recommended to take off work will depend on the amount of areas treated and the type of job that you do. Most patients should be able to return to normal desk-type work within 1 to 3 days after vaser liposuction but some prefer to take a week off to allow for the swelling and drainage to reduce.

When can I exercise after Vaser Liposuction?

You can get back to mild exercise such as jogging after 14 days post-procedure if you have not had treatment in the areas that you exercising (i.e. legs)

Moderate exercise such as running can be resumed after 28 days but we recommend that you slowly build up to this and don’t overdo it too soon. Vigorous activity such as gym workouts and contact sports should be avoided for 6 weeks.

When can I drive after Vaser liposuction?

You will not be able to drive straight away after vaser liposuction and we usually recommend that you refrain from driving until your surgeon has given you the all clear and you feel confident and in control of the vehicle. Please note that your insurance may be invalid if you drive too soon after your procedure.

When can I fly after Vaser Liposuction?

You can fly after about 7-10 days providing you keep well hydrated with only water and keep active on the flight to avoid deep vein thrombosis (DVT).

Why do I need Manual Lymphatic Drainage after Vaser Liposuction?

MLD will help to accelerate the healing process and your recovery time by reducing any swelling or bruising, detoxifies the body, promotes skin elasticity, eliminates waste products and assists the lymphatic system to perform at optimum levels which will get you back on track swiftly and painlessly.

You will usually have a minimum course of 5 daily treatments that last an hour each but more sessions may be recommended for abdominal, Mid-def and Hi-Def vaser liposuction.

At our clinics in our clinics in London Harley StreetManchester and Leeds we offer Body Ballancer® treatment which is a compression therapy treatment based on Manual Lymphatic Drainage.

Is Vaser Lipo safe?

Here at The Private Clinic we would only ever offer and undertake treatments that have been proven to be safe and we always adhere to all safety precautions.

Vaser Liposuction is a very safe technique due to its lipo selection technique where it can target small areas of fat without damaging any surrounding tissue. Vaser Liposuction is also performed under local anaesthetic and sedation which instantly eliminate all the risks associated with general anaesthetic helping to make the recovery time quicker.

If you have any other questions regarding the safety of Vaser Liposuction please contact us, The Private Clinic are happy to answer any questions and discuss any concerns that you may have.

What are the risks associated with Vaser liposuction?

The Private Clinic has been treating patients for vaser liposuction for many many years. Every surgical procedure presents risk and complications and they will be discussed during your vaser liposuction consultation. In addition we provide a comprehensive Patient Guide during your consultation that fully explains the patient pathway, risks, pre and post operative care and more to put your mind at ease.

    Comments from patients

    I’m so delighted that I plucked up the courage for a consultation at The Private Clinic in Leeds. I have an embarrassing condition that has caused me problems my whole life and I can finally see the hope I have been looking for. Sorena and Dr Vlok have been incredibly helpful and supportive in offering me realistic help for my issues. I am pleasantly surprised at what results can be achieved for me and I can’t thank them enough for their support and professionalism. I am also particularly impressed that my safety has also been a priority when looking at my options.

    Kelly, Leeds
