What Is Vaser Lipo?


Lipo Selection™ – The Revolutionary Liposuction

Lipo Selection™ only by VASER® is a new procedure for body reshaping which targets only the fat cells you want removed. It uses the latest technology to gently dissolve fat cells and remove fat in your thighs, hips, abdomen, love handles, knees, back, arms, neck and chin.

Unlike tradition liposuction, there is no need for a general anaesthetic and the procedure can be much more targeted to specific regions. The vaser lipo procedure is pain-free, involves minimal downtime and is less invasive, uncomfortable and expensive.

Vaser Lipo Selection is suitable for both men and women and the treatment is versatile. It can be used on a wide range of different body parts, such as the thighs, arms, double-chins, love handles and stomach.

How the Vaser Lipo Procedure works:

The selected area to be reshaped is filled with a specific type of saline solution numbing the area and shrinking the blood vessels. This helps reduce bruising. It also makes  it easier for the fatty tissue to be broken up by the ultrasound energy. A small probe is inserted into the selected area  and ultrasound energy is transmitted (similar to that used for cataract removal from the eye) to break up fatty tissue  while preserving other important tissues. Finally, a gentle suction process removes the liquefied fat whilst keeping  damage to the surrounding tissue at a minimum.

Benefits of Vaser Lipo Selection:

  • No general anaesthetic required.
  • Minimal discomfort and downtime.
  • Targets fat deposits without damaging other body tissues.
  • Minimal risk of bleeding, bruising and discomfort.
  • Results in significant fat loss, tightens loose skin and sculpts the body.
  • Safe and effective procedure.
  • Results are achieved over a course of treatments, meaning weight loss can easily be passed off as dieting.

What body areas can be treated with Vaser?

Any part of the body can be treated. Particularly popular areas include: abdomen, love handles, male chests, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, back, arms, chin and neck areas.

How soon will I see my results?

Results can vary with every individual, the amount of fat removed, the number of areas treated, and so on. However, many people see results immediately after the procedure. It will probably take up to 3-6 months to see a final result.

Vaser Hi-Def for Men

You may want to get rid of fat or you may wish to have your body re-sculpted, have a six pack or have more defined pectoral muscles. There are thousands of men in the UK who are looking to improve their appearance but do not wish to have major surgery or conventional liposuction.

Vase Hi-Def for Men is an effective solution for gynecomastia (‘man boob’) reduction and also as a successful way of achieving a six pack

This minimally invasive method uses an ultrasound probe which melts and then removes unwanted body fat. You can literally have a six pack sculpted out of a barrel shape or stronger more defined pectoral muscles. Excellent results can also be achieved in the following body areas:

What does Lipo Selection (Vaser Lipo) cost?

The cost will vary depending on the amount of treatment required, as well as the size of the area being targeted. You will have a consultation with your cosmetic surgeon who will then advise you about the number of treatments needed and the cost.

Are results instant?

Many people see some improvement but, depending on the size of the area, several treatments are usually required, meaning result times will vary.

What happens in the recovery period?

There might be some soreness which will last around a week but traditional liposuction can takes weeks. Other than the slight discomfort, you should be able to resume most of your normal activities immediately. After the operation you will need to wear a special garment for one week.

What is the difference between Vaser Lipo and Smart Lipo?

Vaser Lipo works using ultrasound technology, whereas Smart Lipo uses laser technology to achieve results.
