Frequently Asked Questions
What is VASERlipo?
VASERlipo is an advanced body contouring, surgical procedure that selectively removes unwanted body fat. An alternative to the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction, VASERlipo uses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology designed to gently refine your body.

Is VASERlipo an effective treatment technique?
VASERlipo has been used extensively by practitioners across the globe to deliver significant clinical results. Please consult your practitioner to see if VASERlipo is suitable for you.
How does it differ from traditional liposuction?
The VASERlipo procedure (using very small incisions) utilises minimally-invasive ultrasound technology to spare important tissues while targeting fat cells. This innovative technology breaks up fat while leaving all other important tissues intact, resulting in significant results with minimal damage to surrounding tissue. Please visit The VASER Difference for more information.
How does VASERlipo work?
First, the area to be reshaped is filled with a tumescent saline solution, Next, a small probe transmits the ultrasound energy to break up and dislodge fat. A thin tube called a cannula, removes the dislodged fat through a gentle suction process. This process is considered to be less traumatic compared to traditional liposuction.

How soon will I see results? What is the recovery time?
Noticeable results vary according to the amount of fat removed, the number of areas treated, and other factors. Many patients report that they see results immediately after the procedure with the final results around three to four months later. Your practitioner can help you establish realistic expectations. Please visit Results for more information.
What about future weight gain or fat migrating to other areas?
Once you have fat removed, it’s gone. Assuming a healthy lifestyle of proper diet and exercise, it will not return or migrate. However, because fat is necessary to a healthy body, some essential fat layers in any given area remain untreated. If you experience weight gain or loss after your VASERlipo procedure, it will tend to be proportionally distributed over your entire body. Normal ageing changes can also be expected.
Remember, everyone’s goals and circumstances are different, so for an individualised recommendation, we recommend consulting your VASER provider.
