Liposuction – without going ‘under the knife’

VASER treatment is perfect to shift fatty deposits that resist dieting and redraw your silhouette as a streamlined curve rather than a bumpy contour.

VASER treatment isn’t appropriate if you have a lot of fat to lose and Dr Jain always recommends a healthy eating programme as the first step towards trimming down, but when there are bits that simply won’t go away, no matter how much exercise you do or how healthily you eat, VASER is definitely the answer.

If you have:

  • Love handles that your partner teases you about
  • A little ‘tum’ that hasn’t responded to your efforts
  • Saddlebags that mean your hips go out-in-out, instead of a smooth gentle curve
  • Chubby knees
  • A jawline that gravity has blurred
  • Underarms that mean you don’t feel comfortable in sleeveless clothes

VASER treatment could solve the problem and the process is easy and doesn’t require, a general anaesthetic, major surgery or a long recovery period. The procedure involves a local anaesthetic, a tiny incision for each area to be treated and minimal bruising and discomfort.

There’s virtually no down time; you can get right back to normal after a few days and, with a few provisos to aid a swift recovery, you can get on with your life and nobody will be any the wiser except that you’ll just look so much better!

One patient, who had treatment on her chubby knees, says:

“Riverbanks is not about the £ sign, it’s about what Dr Jain believes is right for you the INDIVIDUAL. I asked him if I could have Vaser from the knee down to be told ‘NO, you don’t require it there’, when he could so easily have done it. I am now 10 weeks post Vaser and as I never wore skirts or shorts before, people have noticed that I’m wearing short skirts and dresses, but they haven’t realised why! From front of house all the way to Dr Ravi Jain I would recommend Riverbanks 100%.”


How does VASER Liposuction work?

VASER Lipo treatment can be applied almost anywhere there are fatty deposits on your body and is a safe and proven procedure. It works equally well on both men and women and gently removes that stubborn fat, whilst protecting the tissues around it.

The VASER process works by using ultrasound to turn the fat into liquid form so it can be gently sucked out. The tube is tiny so the procedure in minimally invasive and there are no noticeable scars to camouflage later on. The procedure takes around an hour, depending on the area being treated, and you can go home afterwards with no need for an overnight stay.

You will need to wear a compression garment to keep everything in place while the tissues settle down and realign inside, leaving you with a smooth, instead of lumpy, contour. This garment will be provided as part of your treatment and you’ll get specific instructions as to when you will need to wear it and for how long to ensure you get the best possible results.

If you’ve been self-conscious about those bumps and dressed to hide them, you’ll get a huge sense of satisfaction from being able to wear whatever you please, however figure-hugging it is, and be proud to show off your sleek silhouette. No more baggy T-shirts in the gym, you can wear body-hugging Lycra without a second thought.

After having my second child my body hadn’t returned to normal as quickly as before and even training everyday was not giving me the confidence I used to have. I have always carried weight on my tummy and hips and felt I looked bloated. To have to stand in my underwear was really hard for me however Dr Ravi was so kind and helped relax the nerves.


There are plenty of other patient testimonials on our VASER page, underpinning how easy the procedure is and how great the Riverbanks team are from first consultation right through the recovery process. If you’ve been thinking about liposuction or are self-conscious because there are little areas of fat you can’t get rid of, please book an online consultation and let’s give your self-image a major boost!
