Vaser Liposuction

VASER Liposuction

The most advanced technique for liposuction surgery currently in use is the VASERLipo that uses ultrasound wavelengths to contour the body and enable fat reduction. It is the most efficient and minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that helps in producing a flatter and better toned body.

At the Harley Liposuction Clinic, you get a pioneering medical team of highly experienced plastic surgeons who can offer you VASER Liposuction procedures in London. The surgery is carried out under day-care facility (use of local anesthesia) and patients are allowed to go home on the very same day of surgery without requiring any kind of hospital stay.

What is VASER Lipo?

VASERLipo refers to the workstation where ultrasound liposuction needs to be performed. It delivers pulsed ultrasonic wavelengths through a cannula specially designed for the purpose of liposuction. The ultrasonic wavelengths produce a vibration effect in the skin and melt the deep layers of stubborn fat without causing any harm to the surrounding blood vessels, collagen, or nerves.

VASERLipo uses an ultrasound mechanism that assists the surgeon in terms of better precision and control while separating the fat. This helps in producing a more natural and predictable body contouring, specific to the individuals and their different body types and structures. Moreover, VASER Liposuction helps in creating a significant muscle definition using VASER Hi Def and 4D probes which give people features such as turtle tummy, six pack abs, etc.

VASER Liposuction is an unanimous choice over traditional manual liposuction procedure for plastic and cosmetic surgeons in the United Kingdom as it offers a number of unique advantages:

  • Does not require the use of general anesthesia?
  • Minimally invasive – causes minimal damage to the tissues and blood vessels
  • Less bruising and swelling and a faster recovery as opposed to traditional liposuction
  • Downtime is minimal. Simple walk-in and walk-out procedure without any overnight hospital stay
  • Stimulates collagen production in the skin and makes the skin tighter

Problem Areas That VASER Can Treat

Men and women both often face this issue – despite being slender or lean and nearest to their ideal body weight, little pockets of fat tend to appear in selective regions that stick out like a sore thumb and hinder what could have otherwise been a well-contoured body. Some of the more common problem areas include stomach pouch, gaining stubborn bulges post childbirth, thunder thighs, bingo wings, gynecomastia or male breasts, and cellulite.

People usually talk about losing weight, dress sizes, and inches as the obvious and most overwhelming of causes that a weight loss procedure can help address, body contour or the very structural shape and definition of the body represents an even bigger area of concern. These bulging areas often prove to be extremely stubborn and shifting them seems to be an impossible task based on dieting and exercise alone. There are also instances when the person is simply not able to cope up with the vigorous workout regime.

Ideal Candidacy:

Liposuction surgery is ideal for those patients who exhibit the following characteristics:

  • Should not be 2 stones/20 pounds/10 kgs above their ideal body weight while also possessing good skin turgidity. The patient should also be looking for a contoured appearance of their figure rather than weight loss
  • Should be generally healthy and agree to stick to a routine of regular diet and exercise in order to stay in shape and remain fit
  • Should not be afflicted with any sort of heart, kidney, or blood disorder or disease that could otherwise be an impairment for the surgery
  • Should be a non-smoker or agree to refrain from smoking for the duration as mentioned by the surgeon following the surgery


The VASER Liposuction procedure follows much the same course as a traditional liposuction surgery. A minimally invasive procedure, it is conducted using local anesthesia and on a day-care basis. The VASER workstation creates ultrasound waves which are emitted through the attached microcannulas to create vibration underneath the skin and between the layers of fat. This gradually melts down the fat till its deep layers in considerably lesser time than the manual process. Thanks to the VASER probes, there is also no need to vigorously poke the cannula, thus giving the surgeon better ease and control in terms of reaching the problem areas. The fat removal process also turns out to be pretty even with less risk of causing any damage to the nerves or collagen.

Final Results

Patients can get back to work within 2 weeks of their day care liposuction surgery. If the surgery involves fat removal in large volumes then it could take several more days to resume a normal life.

Final results are usually visible at the end of 3-4 months with the treated areas appearing firmer and flatter. The appearance of this final result may persist even beyond the standard 4-month timeframe since different patients respond differently to the surgery.
