What is Vaser Lipo and how does it work?

VASER® (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance) uses ultrasound to break up the fat cells before they are then extracted using suction. The technique was approved by the US Food Drug Administration (FDA) in in 2002 and has subsequently been introduced to the UK as an alternative to traditional liposuction.

Vaser uses a fine narrow probe with special grooves that emit the ultrasound energy. This energy vibrates the fat cells causing them to burst into a liquid state, allowing the surgeon to sculpt delicate areas such as the arms, outer thighs, hips, abdomen more precisely. By breaking down fat cells using ultrasound the Vaser does not damage any other structures within the area, such as blood vessels or nerves. As the mechanical effort is less than with conventional liposuction, bruising and pain is minimised, meaning a faster recovery time. Once liquefied, the fat is then removed using a cannula and suction.
