Despite a healthy lifestyle and exercise, we can often find areas and pockets of fat that are hard to remove. Although this is perfectly natural and not harmful, many seek to remove these fat pockets in favour of a more slender and defined silhouette.
Vaser Liposuction, also known as Liposculpture, is an advanced fat removal technique that contours and sculpts your body. Vaser Liposuction enhances your natural features and creates a defined and toned physique. Depending on the sculpting level desired, the surgeon performs a high definition, middle definition or standard Vaser Liposuction.
Vaser Liposuction uses minimally invasive state-of-the-art ultrasound technology to precisely target and remove areas of unwanted fat. Taking advantage of the ultrasound energy and the heat produced by the vaser probe, the suregon is able to strategically melt the fat before extracting it out, achieving far better results than traditional liposuction, where the fat is not melted. For this reason, Vaser Liposuction is considered far superior than traditional liposuction.

While the recovery process is different for everyone, Vaser Liposuction does involve more extensive aftercare that traditional Liposuction. The more commitment you put in during your recovery process the better your results will be; your final outcome will not be clear until two or three months after your procedure. The optimum aftercare programme includes a very dedicated use of bespoke body compression garments, as well as post-procedure ultrasound, lymphatic massage and correct exercise and nutrition.
Your treated areas should look great and retain their sculptured appearance for as long as you remain the same weight. If you gain weight, you will generally gain it in areas other than those that were treated.
- Incision area
You may experience some fluid leakage from the incision areas for the first day or two after your procedure, this is tumescent fluid and is a product of the local anaesthetic. It may be blood tinged which is perfectly normal so do not be alarmed; however anything pronounced should be brought to the attention of the clinic.
Within 7 days following your surgery, depending on the area treated, you will have a wound check to assess your sutures which should gradually dissolve. Avoid getting the incision area wet as a warm moist environment harbours bacteria and may lead to a possible wound infection.
You will return from theatre with your bespoke compression garment in place, you must wear this continuously until you are advised by your surgeon that you may remove the garment. Please be advised that if you stop wearing your bespoke liposuction garment before you are advised you will not experience optimum results.
- Bruising / Swelling
You should expect some bruising, swelling and pain after your procedure; some swelling may linger for several months. You may also feel like you’ve lost sensations in the areas treated, this is perfectly normal and is not a cause for concern. As your nerves begin to regenerate feeling and sensation should return to normal.
Immediately following your surgery you should expect some mild, and easily controlled with your prescription medication, discomfort. This only lasts for a very short period with most patients up and walking around comfortably after a day or two; please be aware that you may require some assistance in the first 24 to 48 hours following surgery. Pain medication will be prescribed to control any discomfort, however, if you begin to have severe pain, contact us immediately. We strongly advise that you do not take any medications containing aspirin one week following surgery.
With many insurers your car insurance will be void for 24-48 hours after you have had a general anaesthetic administered. After this time we would recommend that you avoid driving, for approximately seven to ten days, as you may find some of your movements restricted while the brusing and swelling goes down.
- Physical Activities
Vaser Liposuction surgery requires minimal downtime, which means you can return to a gentle daily routine within a couple of days of your procedure - depending on the area treated. We advise that you take at least a week off work to enable you to recover fully. Over the next two or three weeks your treated areas may remain very sensitive and strenuous physical activities should be limited; during this time you can gradually return to activites such as light lifting and sex. Your surgeon will give you clear advise of the activities you can undertake, based on your treatment area, during your consultation.
Immediately after your surgery you will have had a bespoke Liposculpture compression garment, this is an important part of the healing process. Your garment must be worn for between four-six weeks, as advised by your doctor, to aid healing, reduce swelling and, most importantly help ensure a good contour to your treated areas.
For optimum results we advise that your long-term post-operative care will also included a tailored course of Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) Massage. We work very closely with an MLD specialist if you choose to make that part of your recovery process.
- MLD Massage
For optimum results we recommend investing in a course of Manual Lymph Drainage (MLD) Massage which helps to speed up the recovery process, eliminates any swelling or accumulation of liquid in the body and helps to get rid of any remaining toxins.
The MLD massage technique can be used after Vaser Liposuction as little as 48 hours after your procedure, to help speed up your recovery. It combines an ultrasound treatment which is followed by a manual massage. By manipulating the lymph at the dermal-epidermal junction (1-2mm deep, the thickness of 4-5 sheets of paper) the technique aids the body process and eliminate excess fluid from the deeper layers as well as from shallow depths and negative spaces. MLD ensures better skin retraction, reduces stiffness in muscles, thereby improving your immediate post-surgery mobility, and has a therapeutic, anti-inflammatory effect on tissues.
- Physical Activities
After 6 weeks you should be fully recovered and able to undertake more strenuous and physical exercise just as jogging and heavier weight lifting. If you are still feeling discomfort, or are not confident about returning to a more physical routine please discuss this with your liposculpture surgeon who will be happy to discuss your concerns with you.

Vaser Liposuction requires an incision to be made and is therefore a Surgical Procedure undertaken in a hospital operating theatre by our highly qualified and experienced surgeons. At The Harley Medical Group we also offer a Non Surgical Laser Liposuction Treatment called iLipoXcell.
Vaser Liposuction can be performed as a day case, however in some circumstances, depending on the number of areas treated and your suitability, the Surgeon may require you to stay overnight. This will be discussed with you during your consultation with the Surgeon.
Our highly experienced Surgeons will treat up to four areas in one operation, depending on your suitability and requirements. You Surgeon will discuss the best treatment for you to receive optimum results in your consultation.
Vaser Liposuction should not be used as a weight-control tool, but rather undertaken when you are at your optimum weight. If you maintain your weight with a balanced and healthy lifestyle after the procedure the removal of fat cells means it is possible to gain up to four kilos before noticing a change in the treated area. However, no fat removal procedure removes all fat cells from the treated area so you may see some fat return.
If you maintain a healthy and balanced lifestyle you will not experience fat pockets in the area treated or other parts of the body*. Any weight gain, or loss, you do experience will tend to be proportionately distributed over your entire body*.
It is worth noting that not all fat cells will be removed from the treatment area for the sake of your health, therefore significant weight gain will affect the treated area*.
VASER means Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance, referring to the energy used to liquefy the fat cells of the treated area.
Vaser Liposuction removes superficial fat and fat cells from the treated area, as the production of new fat cells decreases significantly following puberty the results following surgery are more or less permanent*. Mild weight fluctuations will therefore go unnoticed in the treatment area as the extra fat is distributed evenly around the body.
Significant weight gain, however, will become noticeable in the treated area*.
Many people find that they have excess skin on their tummy as a result of pregnancy or dramatic weight-loss. While Vaser Liposuction will tighten skin* it is not able to treat large areas. To remove significant excess skin we recommend a Tummy Tuck, also known as an Abdominoplasty.
