Vaser Liposuction Procedure
Vaser Liposuction Procedure
The Vaser Liposuction procedure is performed using ultrasound therapy to remove fat from the body. Some of us have that stubborn fat that we cannot get rid of, even with a healthy diet and regular excise. Dr Lanzer can target specific areas of the body to enhance the shape.
What is the technology of the Vaser liposuction?
Fat is made up of lipid containing cells. The Vaser Liposuction involves an extra step of passing the Vaser through the fat before the suction.
The Vaser is a third generation ultrasound device. It creates an ultrasound wavelength that specifically targets the fat cells, causing them to melt. The fat that is subsequently sucked out with the Vaser liposuction is softer and more liquid like.
What Areas of the Body Can Be Treated?
Many areas on the body can be treated with Vaser liposuction; this includes the inner and outer thighs, hips, buttocks, male and female breasts, flanks, back, abdomen, chest, arms, knees and chin.
What Is Involved with the Procedure?
The Vaser liposuction procedure can be performed while the patient is awake with a local anaesthetic or asleep under a general anaesthetic. Your skin is cleaned with an antiseptic solution, as this is a sterile procedure. Then, small incisions are made into the skin to allow access to the fat in that specific area. Dr Lanzer tries to make these incisions in folds or creases in the skin, so they are less noticeable once they have healed. A tumescent saline solution is then injected into these incisions; this not only numbs the area, it also shrinks the blood vessels and reduces bruising and blood loss. A small probe with ultrasonic waves is inserted into the incisions down to the subcutaneous fat layer; this helps to break up the unwanted fat cells.
Vaser is then performed over the whole area that is being treated. Minimal blood loss and trauma is linked with this procedure, as it is less invasive than other methods of liposuction. A cannula is inserted to remove the fat by gentle suction. Dr Lanzer will continuously be assessing the area to make sure that the correct amount of fat is taken out to ensure a smooth final result.
Who Is Eligible?
Males and females of all ages, shapes and sizes are suitable for Vaser liposuction. It is a body shaping procedure that is suitable for those with stubborn fat pockets that are not in proportion with the rest of their body.
What Are the Possible Side-Effects of Vaser Liposuction?
Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks but they are very rare in qualified cosmetic or plastic surgeon’s hands. Some of these risks are blood loss, bruising, swelling, reactions to an anaesthetic, blood clots, pain, change in skin sensation, numbness, scarring, infection, uneven or rippling area, loose skin, skin or nerve damage, skin discoloration, fluid loss or accumulation, allergic reactions, and poor wound healing.
Do I Need to Wear a Garment Afterwards?
Dr Lanzer recommends that patients wear a garment full time for 2 weeks post-surgery and ½ a day for another 2 weeks; this helps to reduce swelling, to helping with the healing and to ensure you get the best final result.

How Long Is the Recovery?
The recovery period will vary between patients and will depend on the areas that the patient had treated. Some people may have as little as a few days off work if they only treated a small area or those that have a larger area done may take one week off work. Patients should wait 2 weeks until they resume back to any strenuous physical activities.

How Does Vaser Liposuction Differ from Laser Lipolysis?
The difference is one uses an ultrasound sound wave energy and the other a laser. Why do not all surgeons use these devises? That is an interesting question that is relevant to many areas of cosmetic and general medicine. These machines often cost over $150,000 and involves a new learning curve. It’s not so easy to take on new procedures when there are these factors.
How Was Dr Lanzer Trained in Vaser Liposuction?
Dr Lanzer was the first Australian surgeon to travel overseas and receive specific training in the Hi Definition Vaser Liposuction. It involved first being trained in how the Vaser liposculpture works and then understanding the anatomy of the muscles under the fat. The fat is initially dissolved in particular areas and layers depending on each person’s individual make-up.
