VASER Liposuction

The less scary, less traumatic, less painful form of lipo

VASER is a modern, safe and minimally invasive liposuction technique that is much gentler on your skin than traditional liposuction. It is used to remove stubborn fat deposits from areas like the tummy, back, thighs, neck, chest and the underside of the arms. It’s particularly useful if you’re trying to tone up and sculpt your body by removing areas of fat that resist diet and exercise.

Overview

What is VASER liposuction?

VASER stands for ‘Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance’. It uses ultrasound waves to liquefy fat cells, making them easier to extract. The liquefied fat can then be gently suctioned out through a small needle. VASER liposuction can be used almost anywhere that fat is located (and has proven highly effective as a male breast reduction treatment).

Benefits

No need for a general anaesthetic

VASER requires only minor incisions and there’s no need for stitches or a general anaesthetic. It’s therefore much less traumatic than traditional lipo, causing less bleeding and bruising, and recovery time is over 50% faster; many people are able to return to work in as little as 2-3 days.

Technique

Liquefying the fat

First you will be given a mild sedative and put into a ‘twilight state’ where you feel relaxed and sleepy. We will make a tiny incision near the area to be treated and insert a small probe. This will emit ultrasound waves to break down and liquefy fat cells. We’ll then use a small needle to gently suction out the liquefied fat. The treatment time varies between 45 mins and 2-3 hours depending on the number of areas being treated. Due to the twilight anaesthesia, it is a completely comfortable experience.

Treatment Areas

VASER Liposuction can be used to treat:

  • Condition

    Love handles

    Despite their cute name, few people love their love handles. In fact, these folds of excess fat that collect around the waist and hang over trousers are often what both men and women like the least about their body.

    Despite their cute name, few people love their love handles. In fact, these folds of excess fat that collect around the waist and hang over trousers are often what both men and women like the least about their body.

    Although not dangerous in themselves, they can indicate underlying risk factors for chronic illnesses such as high blood pressure, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.

    As love handles are sometimes impossible to shift with diet and exercise, VASER liposuction is a minimally invasive way of getting rid of it quickly.

  • Condition

    Stubborn fat

    Stubborn fat is physiologically different to regular fat, which is why it’s so difficult to get rid of. The cells contain a higher ratio of beta-2 receptors, which hinder fat burning, so even if you’re in the best shape of your life, those bulges won’t budge.

    VASER liposuction is a way of getting rid of stubborn fat deposits quickly, with less trauma to the body and a more-than-50%-faster recovery time than with traditional lipo.

Results

How will I feel?

As the operation is minimally invasive, it can take as little as 2 or 3 days before you’re back at work. You may experience some discomfort requiring painkillers for 1-3 weeks. There will also be some visible bruising which will settle within 3-4 weeks and even quicker with manual lymphatic drainage massages in the first week or two. After you have fully healed, you’ll be left with a newly toned and sculpted body shape. You’ll be able to wear more revealing and figure-hugging clothes and your confidence will soar.

I had VASER Lipo and I am so happy with the results that even over a year later I am still looking great. There are so many clinics to choose from and it is difficult to know who to trust. I cannot recommend this clinic highly enough. You are in experienced safe hands with people that care and are at the top of their game.

Dr Ravi Jain is one the most reliable and experienced professionals I have met. The professional and knowledgeable way Dr Ravi Jain explained the procedure made me feel that confident that I agreed to go ahead with the VASER treatment. The results were outstanding and there are no words to describe that feel.

I have just had Vaser on my abdomen area and feel strongly about wanting to recommend Dr Jain for this surgery. Dr Jain was absolutely superb before, during and after surgery. The procedure that I had was Vaser4d sculpt and I do feel so amazingly sculpted but in such a natural way. I now have a better body than I did before having my two children.

On meeting Dr Jain he was warm and friendly and obviously knows his stuff. He actually told me what I didn't want to hear and sent me away to think about my options. After a bit more thought I went ahead with the procedure, with full understanding of the outcome. I am so happy with the outcome and it has really boosted my confidence. I would not hesitate to recommend the team at Riverbanks, they were so great and made a very nervous patient feel very much at ease. a big, big THANK YOU :)

FAQS

Treatment Questions

  • What is the treatment used for? add_circle
    VASER is carried out on areas of the body where stubborn fat deposits collect and are difficult to remove with diet and exercise alone. Common treatment areas include the tummy, back, thighs, neck, chest and the underside of the arms. Dr Jain does not treat knees, calves or ankles, or people with a BMI over 29.
  • Is VASER a weight loss treatment? add_circle
    No. It is important to note that VASER lipo is no substitute for exercise or a healthy diet and is not a suitable treatment if you are obese. It is also not a suitable treatment if you have a high BMI or your diet is not controlled.
  • How long do the results last? add_circle
    Once the fat is removed, it’s gone for good. If you keep your weight stable, your new body will last you for many years. Furthermore, if you put on a couple of pounds on holiday, having undergone VASER makes it easier to lose those pounds once you get back to a healthier lifestyle.
  • Is the treatment painful? add_circle
    Once you’ve been sedated, you shouldn’t feel any pain at all.
  • When will I see results? add_circle
    After approximately 8 weeks, when you’re fully healed, you’ll be left with a newly toned and sculpted body shape.
