Liposuction has emerged as the most popular slimming procedure worldwide. As you might expect, it has evolved over the years, with the introduction of new techniques, such as laser-assisted liposuction, ultrasonic liposuction, and other minimally invasive procedures.
Lately, more and more patients are choosing VASER liposuction over traditional techniques. This procedure allows the removal of fat surrounding specific muscle groups, such as the abs or the leg muscles. It uses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology, helping to reduce downtime and yielding better results.
VASER liposuction aims to remove stubborn fat and reshape your body. Compared to traditional procedures, it’s less invasive and uses smaller instruments, allowing for faster recovery.
Also known as ultrasonic liposuction, the pulsed ultrasound technology helps liquefy fat more efficiently, providing excellent results. This procedure targets selected fatty areas like the inner thighs, upper and lower abdomen, buttocks, or flanks, from which the surgeon will remove 3 to 4 litres of sub-dermal fat under general anaesthesia.
A typical procedure lasts 2 to 4 hours, depending on the amount of fat removed.
Unlike traditional lipo, which uses cannulas to remove fat, VASER liposuction employs a saline solution that is injected into the targeted areas. The surgeon dislodges the fat with ultrasonic pulses, leaving blood vessels and skin intact, which helps reduce post-surgical swelling, bruising, and pain.
This cutting-edge procedure appeals to both men and women looking to achieve more aesthetically pleasing body contours. The ideal candidate is someone in good health, with fat deposits which have not responded to exercise or diet.
VASER lipo works best for those who want to tighten loose skin following weight loss, drop a few inches around the waist and other body areas, or add muscle definition. Patients should be willing to embrace a healthy lifestyle via diet and exercise after surgery. This helps maintain your new shape and amplify the results.

The advances in technology have made it possible to remove large amounts of fat safely and more efficiently. After an initial assessment, the surgeon will determine how much fat can be removed.
The surgeon will make a few small incisions, inserting a thin tube through the skin into the fat tissues, then proceeding with the injection of fluid containing lidocaine, sodium bicarbonate, and epinephrine. Using the same access points, the surgeon will begin to dislodge and melt the fat with the VASER cannula, leaving it suspended in the saline solution. After completing this stage, the clinician will proceed with the suction of the fat.
Compared to traditional lipo, this new technology causes less discomfort and bleeding. In addition, it stimulates collagen production, leaving your skin firm and tight. Since it’s a walk-in-walk-out procedure, it’s not necessary to stay in the hospital overnight. The final results will be visible after a few months since your body needs time to heal.
After surgery, painkillers will be prescribed to manage the pain and discomfort. Even though the risks are minimal, it’s possible to experience some leaking through the surgical wounds for 1 to 5 days after the procedure.
We will provide two garments to reduce these risks and to accelerate healing. You’ll need to wear them for 3 to 6 weeks.
Most patients are able to return home on the day of surgery and resume their normal activities within 3 to 4 days. This makes VASER lipo ideal for those with a busy lifestyle.

Our anaesthetist will administer a general anaesthesia, making you sleep for the whole procedure. During the operation, the surgeon will inject some lidocaine (local anaesthetic) to reduce the pain in recovery.
The procedure takes 2 to 4 hours.
We suggest waiting at least a week before returning to your normal life, but it all depends on your job.
The full recovery requires a few months. You will see the final results after 4 months, but there might be swelling and bruising for up to 6 to 8 months.
The procedure is performed as day surgery. The need for an overnight stay depends on how fast you recover immediately after the procedure and when the operation ends. We aim to send you home on the same day, but under some circumstances this may not be possible.
Physical activity should be avoided for at least one week. After a week, you can start again with moderate activity, gradually increasing your exercises. Your levels of pain will be the main determining factor when it comes to returning to the gym.
