What are Liposuction and Vaser Liposuction?

These treatments are designed to remove stubborn excess fat cells that won’t respond to diet and exercise.

Areas which can be successfully treated with Liposuction or Vaser Liposuction include: the abdomen, flanks, back, “man boobs” otherwise known as Gynaecomastia, “love handles”, buttocks, hips, thighs, arms, knees and ankles.

The actual method used to extract the surplus fat will have been decided during your thorough initial consultation, having taken into account factors such as the area(s) to be treated and skin elasticity.

What can I expect?

First of all the surgeon will make a small incision near the area to be treated, and then carry out Liposuction or Vaser Liposuction to remove the excess fat.

Vaser Liposuction requires the use of ultrasonic energy to target and break up fat deposits so the fat can be removed naturally and safely. It costs slightly more than liposuction. However, recovery is usually quicker as it’s a less invasive operation and results in less bruising.

In most cases the procedure can be performed as a day-case under local anaesthetic.

Additional Information

Both procedures can be very successful for isolated problematic areas. However, they are not a weight-loss programme, and are not suitable for anyone who has a general excess-weight problem or who has lost a large amount of weight and has been left with excess skin and fat.  We advise clients not to over-estimate the results obtained from these procedures and to follow a sensible eating plan and exercise to maintain the results.

It may be possible to use a non-surgical method such as Cryolipolysis, a technique that reduces localised fat deposits to reshape the bodys contours. The most appropriate method for you will be discussed in detail at your consultation.
