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.

Complications & Side Effects

Although Vaser liposuction is extremely safe, there are some potential complications of undergoing this procedure. These include:

  • Bruising following treatment that can last for up to 2 weeks.
  • Pain, which can be controlled with pain-killers.
  • Infection is very rare, but should this occur, can be treated with anti-biotics.
  • Scars may be visible from the small incisions that are made during treatment, which will fade as they heal over time.
  • Burning is very rare but the ultrasonic energy from the probe can cause a burn around the incision.
  • Skin discolouration around treatment area, but very rare.
  • Bleeding is possible due to the incisions required for sucking out the fat. Medical pads will be provided.

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.

At Manchester Private Hospital, we have the knowledge and experience in carrying out Vaserlipo treatments that can transform your body. Many people from all over Manchester and surrounding areas are opting for Vaser, including those situated in Liverpool, Sheffield, Bolton, Leeds, Salford, Oldham and Stockport.

Arranging a free consultation with one of our experts is just the first step in to getting the body you have always dreamed of and eliminating those stubborn fatty areas for good.

  • The core advantages of Vaser is that there is no need to stay overnight in hospital.
  • There is less trauma to your body, meaning less bruising and less visible scars.
  • The risk of bleeding is minimal and less discomfort during and after treatments.
  • No general anaesthic is required.
  • All treatments are minimally invasive.
  • In most cases, patients walk in for their treatment and walk out the same day following Vaser procedures.

It is also worth noting that the technique for Vaser can stimulate collagen production in the body, giving you tighter skin around the treated area.


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.
