What Is Vaser Liposuction?

Vaser liposuction, also known as VASERlipo, is a modern liposuction procedure using ultrasound technology to break down fat cells in the body with minimum damage to surrounding cells and tissue.

Body fat is melted and removed through a thin tube, using Vaser liposuction techniques to make it easier to remove the fat - especially in dense body parts or areas with large volumes of stubborn fat.


The ultrasound waves emitted by the probe break apart fat cells on contact.

The liquefied fat is then sucked out with a cannula through tiny incisions.

Incisions made on the body are very small, usually around 3mm, which eliminates the need for stitches.

Vaser is commonly used and effective on almost every body part including; ankles, calf muscles, knees, arms (bingo wings), armpits, neck, chin (double chin), thighs (saddle bags), bum, male chest (man boobs), upper back, flanks (aka love handles) and abdomen.

Why Choose Vaser Liposuction?

Vaser Liposuction is a minimally invasive method of removing fat that can be more efficient than traditional liposuction. It is also more selective in the cells it targets whilst leaving surrounding areas untouched.

Fat cells that are removed using this method can also be harvested for fat transfer to other parts of the body.

People are choosing Vaserlipo to get the body shape they've always wanted.

It is a precise method used to target specific fatty areas that are particularly stubborn.

Being minimally invasive, Vaserlipo cuts down recovery time and produces results that are visible instantly after undergoing the procedure.

Vaser liposuction is one of the most popular forms of lipo in Manchester and throughout the rest of the UK.

One of the reasons why it has grown in popularity is that it is great for targeting areas of fat that people struggle to get rid of, particularly love handles and bingo wings.


Other reasons more people are choosing Vaserlipo over traditional lipo include:

Faster recovery
The recovery time for this procedure is very quick. Much quicker than traditional methods. Due to the advanced technology and methods used, patients do not require much time off work and are usually back at work within 2 to 3 days.

Less damage to cells
Blood vessels, nerves and tissue are all damaged during the process of traditional liposuction. However, with Vaserlipo, the precise and gentle waves from the probe leave much less of these unharmed in the surrounding area.

Minimally invasive
The method of removing fat does so with minimum impact on your body. Although incisions are required to suck out the fat, stitches are not required because they are so small.

High quantity targeting
Not only can Vaser target multiple areas, it can target very large sections of the body and remove large quantities of fat cells in a single session.

Arrange a consultation in Manchester with one of our experts to discuss your needs and requirements. We are able to provide professional, no obligation advice on the best treatment for you and your body type.

About The Procedure

When undergoing Vaser liposuction, general anaesthetic is not usually required.

If the area, or areas, being treated are small, then local anaesthetic or sedation is enough to carry out the treatment.

However, in some cases, consultants may advise the use of general anaesthetic on large body parts such as; the back, belly or breasts. Each case varies depending on your medical needs and body type, which our professional staff are able to discuss with you.

There are no special dietary requirements before undergoing this procedure and no specific preparation.

When undergoing treatment, areas of the body are marked beforehand to show the patient and consultant which fatty region is being targeted.

A solution is also sometimes used pre-treatment to make the fat cells stand out, ready for the cells to be broken down and removed.

Fat can be removed from almost any body part using Vaserlipo, whether it is shallow or deep within the body.


Vaser liposuction gives instant results following treatment in most cases and results continue to be noticeable in the days that follow. That is why more people in Manchester and nationwide are choosing this high-tech modern fat buster method.

One of the reasons why results are noticeable straight away is the fact that the treatment is minimally invasive and does not affect surrounding tissue or cells. So there is no waiting for areas to heal to see the true effect of your treatment.

Precise targeting of fat cells allows the patient to focus on their chosen area for fat removal then compare the results pre and post surgery.

Not only are the results visible, but patients also feel the effects of the treatment in the hours and days that follow.

You should expect to see the full and true reflection of Vaser treatments within 2-3 weeks.

Vaser liposuction is sometimes combined with other treatments such as Vaser Hi-Def depending on your goals. This is an advanced body sculpting technique that can enhance muscle definition and works well in conjunction with Vaser lipo fat removal.

For more information about our Vaser high definition treatment, see our dedicated Hi-Def page on our website.

Vaser is also used to tackle cellulite problems. Many women in the North West are not necessarily looking to get rid of huge chunks of fat, but to smooth their bums and legs with cellulite treatments.

Being a non-invasive procedure, Vaser opens up doors to new possibilities to tackling problem cellulite that is common in women of any age and any size.

Body Sculpting

One of the points to note about Vaser liposuction and whether it will be right for you though is if you are already near your desired target weight.

Vaser lipo is not classed as a weight loss solution and patients who are obese will not be suitable. It is more of a procedure to remove fat while sculpting parts of the body.

Although fat distribution throughout the body is down to genetics, some patients have more problem areas than others, such as the upper legs and belly. Whereas others may find them areas are fine, but struggle with their outer edges such as flanks, also known as love handles.

Advantages of Vaser Liposuction

If you have tried to lose weight in the past, or shift fat from a certain area, you may know how difficult it can be given the time needed to diet and train, while trying to work and live your life.

That is why people choose Vaser liposuction treatments.

Vaser gives people the chance to spot-reduce fat from their body, something that cannot be achieved easily with exercise or diet.

Stubborn fat areas are common on every human, so a chance to eliminate this is appealing, and very possible with Vaser.

Vaser Liposuction - Patients Stories


Sharon Ruth

It feels good to share my personal experience with Manchester Private Hospital. I was fully supported and provided with complete guidance when I approached them for undergoing fat reduction treatment. It was a difficult decision to make to begin with because it’s after all a surgery. It was also important for me to get a better guidance in terms of choosing an appropriate treatment as there were a couple of options under liposuction for me to choose from. When I concluded on Vaser Liposuction, I was taken through all the possible situations by experts which was very precise and to the point. The whole engagement process helped as a motivation for me to go ahead and experience the ultimate benefits of cosmetic fat reduction.

Aaron John

Getting back to a well toned body shape had been a very strong desire for me which seemed impossible till the time I came across Vaser Liposuction. When I first read about the benefits of the procedure, it wasn’t a straight-forward thing for me to readily connect with the outcomes. Typically it was a mixed set of feeling I was approaching it with and thankfully I also heard about Manchester Private Hospital. Being a cosmetic speciality clinic known for its reputation and high standards, it did provide me some sort of confidence that Vaser Liposuction actually works. All my counselling sessions went on very well with all my apprehensions getting cleared with every conversation I had with the Vaser specialists in the clinic. Undergoing the procedure was also hassle free because of all the facilities and comforting support I received from the team of professionals at the hospital. It feels good for me to have rediscovered myself and its all thanks to the advancements of Vaser Liposuction.

Eva Jones

The fears of going under the knife are always obvious for me and that kept me away from undergoing liposuction for many years. But, I badly wanted to get rid of my tummy fat which was making my entire outward appearance awkward. When I read about the sophistication and advanced options offered by Vaser Liposuction, I couldn’t resist but visit a cosmetic surgery clinic nearby. Fortunately, it happened to be the Manchester Private Hospital. It appeared fairly new and with all the upgraded facilities that one would want to know and feel great about. It really had a very positive impact that lasted till I underwent the surgery and happily left the clinic. Every single aspect of the clinic was impressive and well maintained, it’s needless to mention the expertise of the Vaser Liposuction Surgeons out there as they are simply excellent. I recommend MPH for all my friends for its quality treatment.

Paul Adams

It is very common for some of us to ignore certain important things and I find myself in that category quite often. My complacency in keeping up with my routine exercises and diet did cost me something I would regret. It was too late by the time I realized that I was completely out of shape and it led me into a phase of depression. It was obvious because I used to be very slim and perfectly in shape and it looked as though my youthful charm was all gone. When I reviewed the information about Vaser Liposuction published by Manchester Private Hospital, I though there is hope. My interaction with the surgeons who already helped many young fellows like me had really convinced me and I eventually opted for the treatment. Today I only had one regret; not walking in to MPH much earlier wasn’t a great idea. I’m a happy man for sure.

Evelin Jose

Even though I was lucky enough to maintain my overall body shape and appearance, it wasn’t the case with my double chin. I understood it was not related to entirely a phenomenon with aging and it is also possible to be reduced with modern treatment techniques. I was glad to know that Manchester Private Hospital offers specific treatments for fat removal and reduction. At the same time, I was also concerned about the accuracy of the surgery and the possible outcome as any adverse complication will be very evident. But the final result of the Vaser Liposuction had exceeded my expectation and today I really celebrate my restored facial look. I recommend MPH.
