Vaser Liposuction Patient Information
Vaser Liposuction Patient Information
Vaser liposuction is a specific liposuction procedure. Vaser stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance, referring to the nature of the procedure and how it is executed.
Of course, this can sound a little complicated, so the Dr Lanzer team has created an information page with vital info on Vaser liposuction.
How Does Vaser Work?
A Vaser liposuction treatment uses special ultrasound technology; this technology breaks down the fat cells before they are removed; this can reduce some of the damage to surrounding tissue, which can be experienced during a liposuction procedure.
Vaser is aimed at the strategic removal of fat deposits, which effectively changes the contours and the shape of the treatment area. However, it is important to not that Vaser cannot remove visceral fat; this is the layer of fat that is situated around the organs. Such fats can only be removed with a healthy diet and regular exercise.
Which Patients Can Benefit from a Vaser Liposuction Procedure?
Vaser liposuction is a procedure that can be executed in both men and women. The patient should be on or around their target weight and have the ability to maintain a healthy lifestyle; this ensures the results obtained from the procedure are maintained post-surgery too.
In addition to living a healthy lifestyle, the patient must have reasonably good skin quality for a Vaser procedure. By removing some persistent fats, the body will change its shape and contours, so the skin must be able to snap back and create an even and smooth result.
Can I Lose Weight with Vaser Liposuction?
Vaser liposuction is not a weight loss solution. The procedure was created to target persistent fat deposits in patients who are on or just around their target weight. It is meant to contour the body, opposed to providing the patient with weight loss.

What Will Happen During a Vaser Procedure?
Before the procedure starts, the patient will be given a general or a local anaesthetic. The choice of anaesthetic can be dependent on the size of the treatment area and the overall anxiety levels of the patient. Thus, anaesthetic type is usually determined during the initial consultation with your cosmetic surgeon.
Once the patient has received the anaesthetic, the surgeon will remove excess fat from the body through a gentle suction process. Of course, before this happens, fat is broken down with the special ultrasound device we mentioned earlier.
How Long Until I See Results After a Vaser Liposuction?
The visible results from Vaser liposuction are much dependent on the healing process. Patients can experience some side-effects after Vaser; this may include bruising and swelling. As a result, patients can only evaluate the full result of their treatment once these side-effects have subsided.
Recovery time for patients can vary considerably too. The size of the treatment area and the overall scope of the procedure are all factors that could influence the recovery time; this also means the time it takes for you to see the results obtained by the procedure.
The Dr Lanzer Clinic provides all patients with clear guidelines and instructions post-surgery. It is important for patients to follow these instructions carefully to enhance the healing process and reduce the chance of complications.
How Do I Maintain Results Obtained from Vaser Liposuction?
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is key to keep enjoying the results you have obtained from Vaser liposuction; this includes a healthy diet and plenty of exercise. When in doubt about your diet and exercise routine, you are more than welcome to consult with the dietician at the Dr Lanzer Clinic.
To keep enjoying results obtained from Vaser, it is quite important to avoid weight fluctuations. Even though fat cells have been removed from strategic locations, an accumulation of fat could become a problem in another part of the body. Alternatively, remaining fat cells in that area could start to grow and diminish the results obtained after the procedure.
