What is Vaser – Ultrasonic Liposuction?
Vaser liposuction is an alternative technology to traditional liposuction. Vaser ultrasonic liposuction is a process by which fatty deposits are removed from beneath the skin to improve the aesthetics of a particular body part.
This FDA approved technology uses sound waves to gently loosen fat and pave the way towards liposuction and smooth contouring of the body.
In the case of vaser liposuction a saline solution mixed with anaesthetics is injected into the body area being treated. Instead of using a cannula and manual movement to break down the fat tissue, or a laser, or water pressure, vaser liposuction uses ultrasound high frequency vibration to break fat cells apart.
The plastic surgeon uses Vaser ultrasonic probes, inserted into the fatty tissue to gently break the fat cells down. The vibration gently disengages and loosens the fat cells and ultimately emulsifies the tumescent fluid that has been infused into the body area. Once the emulsification is in process, a small cannula is used to remove the liquid and the fat cells. Some of the local anaesthetic remains in the tissue and that helps to reduce post-procedural pain.
Vaser liposuction is specifically designed to loosen fat but to protect and preserve other tissues and by using the saline solution there is typically less bleeding and bruising.
Areas on the body that are especially well suited to vaser liposuction include the thighs, knees, abdomen, love handles, arms, chest, chin and neck.
Vaser Liposuction Frequently Asked Questions

Is vaser liposuction painful?
There is no severe pain involved. Some of the local anaesthetic in the fluid remains in the tissue and that helps to reduce post-procedural pain. Mild pain is managed by pain killers both in the hospital and following discharge.
When can I get back to work?
It depends on the fat tissue that is removed; however, on average 3-5 days later the patients can deal with the daily activities other than activities requiring heavy effort.
How many kilos shall I lose after the procedure?
Liposuction is not performed for weight loss. It is a body contouring procedure.
Are my abdominal muscles going to be visible (six pack) after the procedure?
Male patients have a flat, muscular stomach depending on the anatomy of their muscles and their sports activities.
Do I need to wear a pressure garment, if so for how long?
Patients need to wear a pressure garment right after the procedure. Pressure garment needs to be worn for 2-3 weeks.
Does fat reaccumulate at the same region?
Provided that the patient does not gain excessive weight, fat does not reaccumulate at the same region.
