Vaser liposuction is one of many lipo procedures available at Dr Lanzer’s Clinic. Vaser liposuction is a fat removal procedure meant to contour and shape the body in order to obtain the aesthetic goals of the patient. To learn more about Vaser at Dr Lanzer’s Melbourne Clinic, please read the detailed information about the procedure below.
How Is Vaser Liposuction Executed at the Melbourne Clinic?
The Vaser treatment is executed under a local anaesthetic and is considered an ambulant treatment, which means patients can leave the Dr Lanzer Clinic on the same day as the surgery. The procedure is executed by Dr Daniel Lanzer, one of the most prominent cosmetic surgeons in Australia.
To remove fat cells from the treatment area, Dr Lanzer uses a special ultrasound technology, known under the name Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance (Vaser). The ultrasound used during the treatment breaks down the fat cells, which can then be removed from the treatment area by using a gentle suction process.
Vaser liposuction executed at our Melbourne Clinic is a precise procedure, because the treatment will target fat cells directly and cause minimal damage to tissues surrounding the treatment area.
What Are the Benefits of Vaser at Dr Lanzer’s Melbourne Clinic?
This procedure has a number of benefits to patients. First of all, the procedure generally does not require a general anaesthetic, since the procedure requires a local anaesthetic.
In addition to the benefits during the procedure, Vaser can have some benefits for the skin of the patient as well. When the procedure has been executed, the body will be forced to produce a substance called collagen; this collagen may tighten the skin, subsequently making sagging skin less likely.
What Areas Are Suitable for Vaser?
Vaser lipo can be used for a variety of treatment areas on the body; this includes the chin, chest, flanks, inner thighs, outer thighs, abdomen, upper arms, knees, buttocks, upper back, lower back and the buttock crease.
In order to determine if Vaser is a suitable treatment for you, it is recommended to book a consultation with Dr Lanzer, who will be able to tell you more about the procedure and evaluate your eligibility.
Which Patients Use Vaser at the Dr Lanzer Clinic?
This is a treatment that is commonly used by patients with persistent fat deposits, which they have found difficult to remove through diet and exercise alone. If the patient is in general good health and is not excessively overweight, Vaser can tone and contour the body to give the patient a more athletic appearance.
We do need to mention that the results obtained by this will not be more long term if the patient does not maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine. Even though fat is removed during this procedure, weight gain may cause the fat to come back to other places on the body.
Are There Different Types of Vaser Lipo?
The basic procedure is divided into several subcategories, which includes treatments such as Vaser Hi-Def, Vaser 4D and Vaser 360. Treatments such as Vaser Hi-Def and Vaser 4D are popular treatments for men looking to obtain a more athletic physique and defined muscles, while Vaser 360 is a treatment used to treat the legs circumferentially without irregularities.

When Can I See the Results from Vaser?
Each patient is different, so putting a timeframe on the results is impossible, just as it is with the recovery process. Every liposuction procedure is accompanied by side-effects, and these side-effects can make the results of your treatment less visible in the beginning. Therefore, it is recommended not to evaluate the results you have obtained from the procedure until you visit the Dr Lanzer Clinic again for your follow-up appointment.
What Should I Avoid After My Vaser Procedure at the Dr Lanzer Clinic?
There are certain things that should be avoided shortly after your lipo procedure at the Dr Lanzer Clinic. Not following these recommendations could lead to complications, or could affect the result you have obtained from the treatment. Therefore, it is important to follow the directions given to you by Dr Lanzer and his medical team.
During the first couple of weeks after your procedure, strenuous activities should be avoided. If you tend to go to the gym on a daily or weekly basis, it is advised to cancel your sessions until your body had the time to heal. Alternatively, patients may do some light walking and general movements after the procedure. However, extensive and rigorous exercise should be avoided.
Certain types of massages could aid the recovery process. A good example of such a massage is the so-called MLD massage, which stands for manual lymphatic drainage. The massage uses gentle, rhythmical pressure in certain locations, which encourages the body to drain or remove any excess fluid and waste products from the body. The massage is not only used to promote recovery after cosmetic surgery, because this treatment is also popular with patients who suffer from conditions like lipoedema and lymphedema.
During the first few weeks after your procedure, you will experience bruising, swelling and general discomfort. To reduce some of the discomfort you may experience, Dr Lanzer could prescribe you some pain management medication. However, always consult Dr Lanzer before you take any form of medication, considering some types of medication could hinder the recovery process.
Can Vaser Provide a Solution for Me?
The Dr Lanzer Clinic is only able to recommend a certain treatment when a patient comes to our clinic for a consultation, since all cosmetic surgery procedures require the patient to be evaluated fully. When you come to our Melbourne Clinic for a consultation, you will be able to speak to Dr Lanzer about the persistent fat deposits that have been bothering you and find out if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
