Surgical Vaser lipo

everything you need to know

Vaser (Vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance) is a smart liposuction procedure that’s growing in popularity because of its reduced downtime. All cells in the body, including fat cells, vibrate naturally and Vaser lipo breaks down fat by amplifying this natural process.

What is Vaser liposuction?

Vaser liposuction, or Vaser lipo for short, is a less invasive fat removal and body sculpting procedure that uses ultrasound technology to break down fat cells, with less damage to the surrounding tissue than traditional liposuction. There are two methods of Vaser liposuction: the surgical method for large body areas and the less invasive non-surgical liposuction method. The best technique for you will depend on the area you’re having treated, the amount of fat to be removed and your medical history, and one of our surgeons will advise you which is the best option for you.

Surgical Vaser liposuction

Vaser surgery is typically used for areas of stubborn fat in the arms, thighs, stomach, bottom, hips, chin or knees. The procedure may involve small incisions and is often carried out under general anaesthetic.

Non-surgical Vaser liposuction

Non-surgical Vaser liposuction can be used on multiple areas of the body and can be performed under local anaesthetic, rather than a general anaesthetic. It’s typically used for areas that are likely to store fat such as the tummy, abdomen, ‘love handles’, back, thighs, arms and chin, but can be used on a number of different areas in a single procedure.

Vaser liposuction frequently asked questions

You’ll have the opportunity to ask your surgeon any questions as part of your consultation, but to start the ball rolling here are the answers to some that our patients most frequently ask.

Vaser liposuction FAQs

Vaser lipo is a fat removal procedure that uses ultrasound technology to target unwanted fat cells. It offers an easy way for the surgeon to remove fat without causing bleeding or performing invasive surgery, making it a popular choice among women who aspire to a more sculptured physique. At Transform, we offer two different types of Vaser liposuction – Vaser surgery and non-surgical Vaser lipo. During your consultation, your surgeon will be able to discuss the right option for you depending on the area you’d like treated and the results you’d like to achieve.

As a responsible provider of cosmetic surgery, we understand that each individual’s procedure is different and will be tailored specifically around the patient. Because of this, we place a great deal of importance on our free face-to-face, no obligation consultations. Following our consultation process your patient advisor will provide a detailed pricing overview around the particular procedure. Please view our pricing and finance page to read more about our flexible credit options, available via our partnership with a specialist financial provider. More info here.

Vaser liposuction uses ultrasound to target the fat cells, which is an easier way for the surgeon to remove fat without bleeding or invasive surgery.

Vaser lipo is a highly effective way to reduce the amount of fat in stubborn areas and deliver a better reduction of the skin. One of the main benefits of Vaser liposuction is it requires minimal invasion, so bruising, bleeding and scarring is often reduced compared to traditional liposuction. It’s suitable for both large and small parts of the body, and our surgeons may be able to work on multiple areas during one procedure. Another benefit of our non-invasive Vaser lipo method is that it can be performed using local anaesthetic – meaning recovery time is quicker and you may be discharged from our clinic earlier than you would following general anaesthetic.

If you have some localised areas of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise, Vaser liposuction may be suitable. During your consultation, you can discuss why you’re interested in having Vaser lipo, the results you’d like and your medical history with your surgeon. They’ll then let you know if they think this is the right procedure for you and whether Vaser surgery or the non-invasive method would be most suitable.

Vaser liposuction usually takes between one and three hours, depending on how much fat has to be removed and the area being treated.

Typically, a traditional liposuction procedure may involve using a laser pulse or a pressurised water jet to break up the fat cells. The surgeon would make a small incision and insert a suction tube to remove the excess fat, then stitch up the area. The main difference with Vaser liposuction is that it uses ultrasound technology to target fat cells, which makes it easier to remove fat without strain or damage to the skin and surrounding tissue. Small incisions are made to allow the fat cells to be sucked out, and these are often too small to require stitches.

Vaser liposuction will reduce the amount of fat in stubborn areas and deliver a better reduction of the skin.

If you have some localised areas of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise in order to lose the fat, vaser liposuction may be suitable.

This can be anything between three and four litres of fat per operation. For anything more than this, we would recommend multiple surgeries.

The great thing about Vaser liposuction is it can treat any area of the body, but popular areas include the hips, thighs, stomach, chin, knees and bottom. It’s often possible to have multiple parts of the body treated during one procedure, depending on the size of the areas. You can discuss the areas you’d like treated with your surgeon during your consultation and figure out the best treatment plan for you.

If you’re thinking about having Vaser, it’s important to have a full understanding of the risks and complications that may arise. While our expert surgeons have a huge amount of expertise and experience with these procedures, all types of surgery carry a level of risk. For Vaser liposuction these include bruising, loose skin, infection, bleeding after surgery, and irregularities of the skin. Your surgeon assistant will go through all the details and answer any questions you have, as well as providing you with a guide.

This will depend on the type of Vaser liposuction you choose to have. For instance, if you have non-invasive Vaser lipo and a local anaesthetic, you may be able to return home the same day. On the other hand, if you have a long surgery under general anaesthetic, you may need to stay overnight in one of our purpose-built hospitals − but rest assured, they have the highest quality facilities and are all CQC registered. We’ll discuss what we think is best with you before we book your surgery.

The amount of time it takes you to recover following Vaser fat removal surgery will depend on several factors, such as the type of anaesthetic you had and the area you had treated. Usually, the recovery time after Vaser liposuction is quite quick and you should be able to go back to work after a few days.

You will either be given a local or general anaesthetic for your Vaser liposuction, so you won’t feel any pain throughout the procedure. It’s likely you’ll be a bit sore during your recovery, but any pain can be controlled, and we’ll discuss aftercare with you during your consultation. Of course, different people have different thresholds of pain, but usually Vaser liposuction recovery isn’t particularly painful.

Yes, you will need to wear a pressure garment post-surgery for between two and six weeks, depending on the advice of your surgeon. This is an essential part of the healing process following your Vaser lipo, and your nurse will talk you through how to wear it and other aftercare tips before you head home.

Typically, Vaser lipo scars are small (just a few millimetres in length) and generally fade within a few months.

If you gain weight after Vaser liposuction, the area treated can also gain some of this weight. However, if you keep to a healthy lifestyle and diet, you can continue to have the same results post-treatment. It’s important to note that Vaser lipo is not intended as a quick fix for weight loss and should be undertaken when you’re at your optimal weight.

Many of our patients ask “does Vaser lipo tighten skin?” and while it does help to firm looseness, it cannot effectively remove large areas of excess skin. If this is a concern for you, you can discuss this with your surgeon assistant or surgeon who’ll be happy to recommend the right course of treatment.

As a responsible provider of cosmetic surgery, we understand that each individual’s procedure is different, so our treatment plans are tailored specifically around your unique needs. Because of this, the Vaser lipo cost can vary, depending on the area(s) you’re having treated. We place a great deal of importance on our free face-to-face, no-obligation consultations, during which you can discuss your requirements with your surgeon assistant. They’ll then provide a detailed overview of the Vaser liposuction cost and the various payment plans we have available. As well as being able to pay for your procedure outright, you can choose to spread the Vaser lipo cost over several years via our flexible finance plans. Please view our pricing and finance page to read more about our flexible credit options. These are provided by specialist financial provider Omni Capital Retail Finance Ltd, who are regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.

More details on Vaser liposuction

When you come to Transform, the entire experience is tailored to you and the results you want to achieve. Our team of experts will work closely with you, listening to your goals and creating a bespoke treatment plan in line with your requirements. Rest assured you’ll get all the advice and support you need throughout the process. To give you a little more information on our Vaser liposuction, we’ve put together this step-by-step guide so you know what to expect.

Vaser liposuction step-by-step

The first part of your journey with Transform is meeting your surgeon assistant. You can talk to them about why you’re considering fat removal, the likely Vaser liposuction cost, available finance options, how much time you’ll probably need to take off work, and when you’d like to have the surgery. If you feel ready, we’ll then book you in for your free consultation with one of our surgeons.

At your free consultation, your surgeon will ask you about the results you want to achieve from the fat removal surgery. You can discuss every aspect of your Vaser liposuction, from the technique used and recovery time to the benefits and risks, with no obligation to go ahead. Our surgeons are extremely knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions you may have. Depending on the area you’re having treated, the amount of fat to be removed and your medical history, your surgeon will discuss the best technique for you. If you feel ready to go ahead and book your fat removal surgery, they’ll then refer you to a clinic nurse who’ll perform some pre-op tests and procedures.

On the day of your fat removal surgery, you’ll meet with your surgeon so you can go through the consent form and ask any last-minute questions. Non-surgical Vaser liposuction can usually be performed under local anaesthetic. The advanced ultrasound technology we use allows us to effectively break down fat cells without affecting other cells that vibrate at different frequencies. The liquefied fat cells are then removed from the body using a gentle suction process. The procedure is less invasive than normal liposuction, which means that only small incisions are made to suck out the broken-down fat cells. These incisions are typically too small to require stitches. Typically, only one treatment of Vaser lipo is required and this usually takes between one and three hours, depending on the number of areas that you want to treat. Vaser surgery is typically used to remove fat from larger body areas, for example, stubborn fat in arms, thighs, stomach, bottom, hips, chin or knees. The procedure may involve small incisions and is often carried out under general anaesthetic.

We’ll be here throughout the recovery process to help you recuperate quickly and safely. Vaser liposuction patients often experience a shorter recovery time than with traditional liposuction because the procedure is less invasive. If you have a local anaesthetic, you can usually return home the same day. With a general anaesthetic, and often with fat removal surgery, an overnight stay in one of our specialist Transform hospitals may be needed. Your surgeon will check that you’re properly recovered before discharging you. Before you go home your nurse will talk to you about the importance of wearing a compression garment during the day for between two and six weeks following the procedure. Usually, you can return to non-physical work after three to four days.

.

We believe that the highest quality aftercare is just as important as the surgery itself, so we’re here to support you. With Vaser liposuction, there may be less scarring and bruising than with traditional liposuction, so visible results can be seen more quickly. However, the improved overall appearance of the treated areas will become apparent in the months following the Vaser lipo procedure. If you have any questions or concerns at all, you can contact our 24/7 helpline. You’ll also have a follow-up appointment with the Transform team to make sure you’re healing well. All patients have access to our three-year aftercare programme as standard and you’ll have the option to extend cover for up to 10 years.
