What is VASER Pro Liposuction?

VASER Liposculpture is a subset of liposuction. The VASER probe is inserted into the target area to predominantly remove fat from the middle layer; the deep and superficial layers are left intact.

The ultrasound is effective in leaving the blood supply to the skin intact. This liquefied fat is easier to remove, especially in difficult areas like the chest and banana fold, where there’s more fibrous tissue.

A benefit of ultrasound, as shown in studies, is that skin tightening can occur by approximately 6 per cent. If you have looser skin around the abdomen and inner thighs, this procedure can be more effective, with skin lifting surgery able to be avoided more often.

Vaser Liposuction Vs Traditional Liposuction


Vaser Pro Liposuction candidate

Smoking and illicit drug use must be strictly avoided before the procedure.  We take smoking very seriously as a high risk for any procedure, so you must be aware of the cancellation policy if you smoke.  Smoking increases the risk of some serious complications during and after surgery.  Ideally, you should stop smoking at least 8-weeks prior to a procedure, cutting down does not reduce the risk of complications, however, the greatest health benefit is gained by quitting smoking for good.  More information about the possible complications, as well as information about how to quit, is available here.

You should be fit and healthy, and avoid blood thinning medication such as aspirin and anti-inflammatory medicine. At least two consultations are needed before most procedures. A full history and examination will be conducted. You will be started on antibiotics and extensive instructions will be given.

Vaser Pro Liposuction expected results

A 50-90% difference can be expected to be seen in 6-12 months. An average improvement is 80%, but with VASER this can be higher. You must be realistic, as results are variable.

Vaser Pro Liposuction procedure

You must ensure that you are on time for your procedure. A nurse will go through an extensive checklist to ensure that you are well prepared. All paperwork must be completed before the procedure.

Blood tests and medications must have all been organised before the procedure. Photographs will be taken of the areas to be treated, and you will be fitted with a surgical gown.

You should have fasted for 6-hours and showered in an antiseptic solution. You will be taken into a theatre and connected to a heart and oxygen monitor. A small drip is inserted into the back of your hand and sedation drugs are given. If you are concerned about discomfort from the drip insertion, you are able to ask the nurse for Emla numbing cream to be applied to the back of your hand.

As the procedure is performed under sedation, you should be completely asleep and should not remember the procedure and many hours afterwards. Most procedures take approximately 2-hours, plus 2-3 hours for you to wake up and be fully recovered. A responsible adult must drop off and pick you up and look after you the first night. You should wake up feeling numb and in no pain whatsoever.

Vaser Pro Liposuction aftercare and recovery

The following day you will need to be driven to your review appointment with the nurses and the doctor. The compression garment that has been applied will be taken off and all wounds will be treated.

During the night, it’s wise to lie on an old towel, as the wounds will seep with raspberry cordial-like fluid.

If the consistency becomes that of tomato sauce, i.e. red and thick, the doctor should be immediately called. Our doctors are on call 24-hours a day and will phone you during the first night.

The nurses will give you a bed bath for the first day and showering can occur on the second day. Wounds are usually closed during this first day. You should be up and walking around the house as often as possible, but generally, no exercise and rest should occur for the first 4 to 7 days.

Intercourse should be avoided for the first week. Swimming and sitting in spas should be avoided until the wounds are completely healed or after 2-weeks.

A distinct improvement will be seen during the first week, but swelling may set in for up to 6-weeks. The end result is seen, on average, at 3-months, but sometimes as early as 1-month. For some patients, the end result can take up to 12-months.

Recovery time is quick, and most patients can resume normal activity within 2-3 days after the procedure. We recommend light exercise at 1 week, moderate at 2-weeks, full at 3-weeks, and extreme exercise to be avoided for 6-12 weeks.

Manual lymphatic massage

Performing manual lymphatic massage (MLM) on yourself can be beneficial for promoting lymphatic flow and reducing swelling.
Here are some general guidelines for a DIY MLM session: Wait 2 weeks after surgery.1. Prepare the space: Find a comfortable and quiet space where you can lie down or sit in a relaxed position. Use a firm surface, such as a mat or massage table, and ensure the room temperature is comfortable.2. Begin with deep breathing: Take a few deep breaths to relax your body and mind before starting the massage. This helps promote a sense of calm and aids in lymphatic circulation.3. Gentle warm-up: Before directly targeting the lymphatic areas, gently warm up your body by lightly massaging your neck, shoulders, and chest using broad circular motions. This helps prepare the lymphatic vessels for better flow.4. Neck and collarbone area: Start by placing your fingers at the base of your neck and make gentle, slow circular motions, moving towards the collarbone. Repeat this motion several times to stimulate lymphatic drainage in this region.5. Arm massage: For the arms, use gentle, rhythmic motions. Starting from the hand, massage in the direction of the armpit, where the lymph nodes are located. Use a soft touch and repeat the motion several times on each arm.6. Leg massage: Similar to the arm massage, work your way from the feet towards the inguinal lymph nodes located in the groin area. Use light strokes, moving upwards in a rhythmic manner. Repeat the motion several times on each leg.7. Abdominal massage: Place your hands below your ribcage and gently massage in a clockwise circular motion. This helps stimulate lymphatic flow in the abdominal region. Be mindful of any surgical incisions and avoid applying pressure directly to those areas.8. Relaxation and hydration: After completing the massage, take a few moments to relax and continue deep breathing. It’s essential to hydrate yourself by drinking plenty of water to support lymphatic function.Remember, self-massage techniques should be gentle and not cause pain. If you have specific concerns, recent surgical incisions, or complex medical conditions, it’s best to consult with a certified lymphatic massage therapist or your healthcare provider before attempting self-MLM. They can provide personalized guidance and ensure you perform the massage safely and effectively.
