VASER Liposuction


Liposuction is a procedure that removes the fat deposits from under your skin. VASER Liposuction refers to a type of liposuction that breaks down fat the cells, loosening them from the deeper tissues. This enables the fat cells to more effectively be eliminated during and after treatment.

VASER Liposuction is the acronym for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance (VASER). This ultrasound technology uniquely employs waves that disrupt the bonds between fat cells.

Compared to other cosmetic techniques, VASER Liposuction is more gentle and more targeted, but it does require a skilled and experienced technician to achieve the best results. It is important to know that Liposuction isn’t considered a weight loss tool. People who have the best results with VASER liposuction should ideally be within 5-10 kilos of their ideal weight.

The VASER Liposuction procedure is ideal for people who are trying to spot-treat fat deposits and reveal muscle tone underneath.

Who are Good Candidates for VASER Liposuction?
You may be a candidate for VASER Liposuction if you’re a healthy person, within a range of ideally 10 kilos of a healthy weight and who doesn’t smoke or have a history of bleeding conditions.

VASER Liposuction can target any of the following areas:

  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Chin and neck
  • Upper back
  • Waistline and stomach
  • Hips, Buttocks and thighs


All types of liposuctions operate on the same basic premise. The fat deposits are broken apart and then they are removed from your body using anaesthesia, saline solution, and cannulas to suction out the fat from under your skin.

Water pressure and lasers are two ways that the fat deposits can be broken apart before the suction procedure. VASER Liposuction is one type of ultrasonic liposuction with the energy sources generate heat that helps break apart the fat cells for easier removal and minimally tighten the skin in the area that’s treated.VASER Liposuction is unique in that it allows your provider to be both gentle and extremely precise in the way that fat is removed. It disrupts the connection between your fatty tissue and the muscles underneath without hurting your underlying healthy tissue.

Preparing for VASER Liposuction
To prepare for your VASER Liposuction appointment be sure your doctor is aware of any medications that you’re taking. You will need to avoid taking blood-thinning medication in the two weeks before a liposuction procedure. Also, avoid drinking alcohol the at least the night before the procedure. Your doctor may give you some additional instructions to prepare for VASER Liposuction.

Procedure for VASER Liposuction
During VASER liposuction, you’ll most likely be put under general anaesthesia or some form of anaesthesia called conscious sedation. A saline solution or tumescent fluid mixed with an anaesthetic will be injected into the targeted area. Ultrasound probes will then be inserted into the skin through a small incision that helps to break up the fatty tissue.

The fatty tissue will gently start to break down, and a cannula will be used to remove the fatty tissue and most of the fluid. Some of this fluid will be left in your body to help to numb any post-procedural pain. Over the coming days, your body will absorb the remainder of the eliminated fat and related toxins.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Q. How Much Does VAPO Liposuction Cost?

You should be given some sterile cotton pads to dress the affected area, as it’ll be weeping fluid in the next 24 to 48 hours. You may need to drink extra fluids to flush the anaesthesia from your body. You’ll also need to wear a compression garment for several weeks to help reduce the swelling.
