We are all paranoid about our tummies and battle through life in an attempt to maintain a sleek and slender waist line. Lifestyle changes and hard work at the gym can help to reduce our weight and our waist but sometimes that is not enough. VASER is a form of minimally invasive liposuction that is able to help remove stubborn areas of fat around the tummy and flanks to improve your waistline and help contour a sleeker silhouette.

What is VASER liposuction?

VASER stands for Vibration of Sound Energy at Resonance. Essentially the VASER probes emit ultrasound energy that specifically targets fat cells leaving other tissues intact. The fat is subsequently emulsified (melted) by the ultrasound energy and can then be suctioned away using gentle suction probes. There is minimal damage to the surrounding muscle and fascia. VASER is an extremely gentle form of liposuction with some associated skin tightening and hence makes it ideal for treatment of your waistline.

How is VASER liposuction performed?

VASER is a minimally invasive procedure performed under local anaesthetic. A series of small incisions are made in the groins and around the flanks to provide entry for the VASER probes. Following administration of local anaesthetic and appropriate numbing of the abdomen and flanks the VASER probe is inserted under the skin into the fatty areas. This transmits ultrasound energy that subsequently liquefies fat leaving surrounding adjacent structures in tact. A suction device is then inserted and through a gentle suction process removes the fat. The ultrasound energy also helps to stimulate the surrounding skin and help with some skin tightening.

In more extensive liposculpting cases, where there are multiple regions involved including the front and the back and/or large amounts of fat to be removed we suggest carrying out the procedure under sedation. This is not quite a general anaesthetic but does require monitoring and the presence of an anaesthetist. Where sedation is necessary we carry out the procedures at a sister clinic on Harley Street. There is also a significant additional cost involved. Sedation is also recommended in revision liposuction cases as the scarring and fibrosis that has formed within the fat planes can be very sensitive.

VASER liposuction is a very effective treatment for the removal of fat around the abdomen and flanks and with the advent of VASER Hi-Def and 3D techniques VASER has taken up an art form. At Rejuvence Clinic we recommend the combination of VASER with J-Plazty. We are the only clinic in the UK that offers J-Plazty powered by J-Plasma. This revolutionary technology provides phenomenal skin tightening with results rivalling those of a more invasive tummy tuck. If you are considering VASER liposuction for your abdomen come to us and don’t just get VASER. Get J-Plazty Abs – VASER with J-Plasma! The results are superior to just VASER alone and as well as getting rid of your unwanted fat tighten up that loose skin and feel the years drop off.

Liposuction is the gold standard for removal of fat from the abdomen and flanks. Advances in liposuction technology have provided numerous options but on the whole VASER liposuction is still considered to be the treatment of choice for most cosmetic surgeons. VASER liposuction has the added benefit of providing some skin tightening effect in addition to removal of fat. Over the skin, non-invasive radio-frequency and ultrasound treatments, such as 3D Lipomed, Cool-Sculpting and Ultherapy, can help to reduce fat and tighten skin but the results are very variable and multiple sessions are needed. Liposuction should not be considered a weight loss alternative and it is necessary for any treatment to be supplemented with lifestyle changes including a healthy diet and regular exercise.

VASER is appropriate for both men and women between the ages of 30 and 80 years of age. It is most effective in the treatment of the abdomen and flanks. However, not everyone with abdominal fat can benefit from VASER liposuction. Extra-abdominal fat is fat that lies in front of the muscular abdominal wall and hence easily amenable to VASER liposuction and results in the typical ‘pot belly’. Intra-abdominal fat lies deep behind the muscular abdominal wall and is not amenable to VASER liposuction. When VASER is combined with J-Plazty Abs the results of liposuction are superior to VASER alone. At Rejuvence we are the only clinic in the UK to offer J-Plazty. This is the premier skin tightening treatment in the world and can help to really tighten up the skin around the waist. Results are natural and long-lasting and avoids the costs, downtime and potential complications of cosmetic surgery.

The downtime from VASER liposuction is significantly shorter than with more invasive cosmetic surgery. Following the procedure clients are asked to wear an abdominal compression garment for the first 72 hours and then continue to wear this every night for the next 4 weeks. There can be some minimal oozing for the first 24 to 48 hours from the incision sites that are often left to heal naturally. There is minimal pain associated with the procedure and paracetamol will often suffice. We recommend our clients take 4 to 5 days off work. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for 2 weeks and no heavy lifting for 4 weeks. Manual lymphatic drainage massage is recommended for those undergoing more extensive liposuction to aid and quicken recovery.

The results of VASER liposuction will be noticeable soon after the procedure within the first week. The results will continue to improve over the course of 4 to 6 months.
