Vaser liposuction explained?
Vaser liposuction, or Vaser lipo, works by breaking down fat cells in the body by amplifying the natural vibrations that occur in cells. As a fat removal technique, it’s becoming increasingly popular because the procedure is less invasive and has minimal downtime compared to traditional surgical liposuction.
Vaser lipo treatments are traditionally carried out to reshape the body by getting rid of unwanted fat from areas of the body that are notoriously difficult. This procedure shouldn’t be used as an alternative to dieting and exercise, instead it should be carried out as a complementary cosmetic procedure to enhance the natural shape of the body.
Some of the most common areas of the body where liposuction is carried out include the Stomach/Abdomen, Thighs, Hips, Chin, Arms and knees.
Depending on the area being treated, a different type of Vaser lipo treatment may be used. For larger areas of the body, the procedure will require a more surgical approach whereas smaller areas can have less invasive treatment.
If you’re struggling to remove stubborn fatty build up despite a good exercise plan and dieting, and you’re not keen on undergoing surgery, Vaser liposuction may be a good option for you.

Non-surgical Vaser liposuction can usually be carried out under local anaesthetic whereas surgical Vaser liposuction is often carried out under general anaesthetic.
Advanced ultrasound technology is used to breakdown the fat cells very precisely without damaging other cells in the body. This is then followed by the removal of the liquified fat through the small incisions made around the treated area using a suction device.
The whole procedure can take around 1-3 hours to complete depending on the number of areas that need to be treated. Repeat treatment shouldn’t be needed as the desired results can be achieved after one session.
