VaserLipo® known as “VASER” stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance. It is a minimal invasive procedure done with local tumescent anaesthetic, uses ultrasound technology to separate the fatty tissue to be extracted by suction.



  • VASERLipo® does not require general anesthesia

  • Minimally invasive – does not damage other tissues

  • Stimulates collagen production, resulting in skin tightening, while conventional liposuction is more likely to result in sagging skin

  • Reduced risk of bleeding, bruising and discomfort

  • Minimal downtime compared to liposuction – walk-in-walk-out procedure

  • In the same procedure there is the possibility of fat transfer to specific areas to enhance the contour of the body

  • Ideal for men or women



  • Immediate evident reduction of fatty tissue deposits.

  • Appearance improves over the following weeks as the natural inflammatory process decreases after this type of procedure.


  • Fatty tissue deposits resistant to exercise and diet.

  • Male breast enlargement (gynaecomastia).

Downtime & Recovery


  • Walk-in-walk-out procedure.

  • Some individuals return to daily activities the following day.

  • Some individuals need to rest and recover for about a week depending on pain threshold, mild painkillers help with symptoms.

  • Small incisions do not require stitches however fluid will drain for over a week until incisions close by natural healing process.

  • Fluid retention in some areas is likely and drainage/aspiration by doctor is required, therefore attending scheduled follow-up appointments is highly important to avoid any complication.

  • Manual lymphatic drainage massage helps prevent uneven areas and helps with recovery.

  • The use of medical compression garments is imperative to obtain best results, minimum of 9 weeks, ideal for 3 months.

Complications & Side Effects


  • Considered safe, as it is a minimally invasive procedure only done by a highly qualified and trained doctor.

  • Extremely unlikely death threating complications related to anaesthesia, as it is local tumescent anaesthesia used in safety range.

  • Syncope / “Fainting” / Vasovagal Syndrome after a minimal invasive procedure can occur in the first 24-48 hours, precautions will be explained.

  • Swelling and bruising during 3-4 weeks following the procedure, improves as natural healing process controls inflammatory response.

  • Numbness of skin for up to 8 weeks following the procedure, improves naturally over the first months of the procedure.

  • Unevenness and irregularities on the skin, sensation of “lumps and bumps” improves over the following 3 months as tissues reposition naturally.

  • Haematomas (collection of blood) and seromas (collection of fluid) in the first weeks of the procedure. Will be treated by aspiration done by a doctor, no significant implications of the overall results.

  • Skin necrosis on thin and superficial skin layers, will be avoided by highly skilled doctor.

  • Hyperpigmentation of incision sites depending on skin tone, more likely in darker skin tones.
