We are one of the first clinics in the UK to bring this ultrasound lipoplasty technology over from the USA, and it’s now fast replacing laser liposuction as the go-to, minimally invasive body sculpting treatment. If you have stubborn areas of fat, Vaser Lipo can reduce these, refining your silhouette. Vaser also prevents damage to your blood vessels and connecting tissue, resulting in a much shorter downtime and reduced bruising.
One of our highly experienced Cosmetic Surgeons will perform your procedure, which may take a couple of hours, depending on the number of areas that you wish to improve. A local anesthetic will ensure that you’re not in pain, but one of the primary advantages of Vaser is the use of a gentle ultrasound probe, instead of the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction.
Vaser promotes smooth results with a fast recovery time. It has had excellent results on the following areas:
Results from Vaser are more natural-looking, with areas of fat removed. For those who prefer a more athletic, sculpted look, Vaser-Hi-Def may be a preferred option. Many patients will see a result straight away and the improvement in the treated areas will become prominent in the months following the procedure.

Step by Step Vaser Liposuction
1 NO OBLIGATION CONSULTATION
Your first step is a NO OBLIGATION consultation with one of EF MEDISPA’s expert treatment coordinators who will take your full medical history, listen to your concerns and talk to you about the procedure in detail. After that first consultation, your consultation with the doctor will be booked.
2 MEET YOUR PRACTITIONER
Should you decide to move forward with Vaser Lipo, you will meet one of our EF MEDISPA. During your 1st appointment with the doctor you will have the time to discuss your medical history, desirable results and get answers to any medical questions that you may have about the procedure. The doctor will be the one to determine whether you are suited to the procedure and determine the time duration according to the areas you want to treat.
3 BEFORE THE PROCEDURE
If you decide to proceed, on the day of your surgery you will meet the surgeon again to discuss any last minute questions you may have and ask you for your final consent before the procedure. You will then be introduced to the nursing team and possibly an anaesthetist who will be responsible for making the procedure as comfortable as possible.
4 DURING THE PROCEDURE
Vaser Lipo at EF MEDISPA is performed under local anaesthetic or conscious sedation. Firstly a small incision will be made in the area to be treated. A small probe is then inserted which transmits ultrasound waves that will liquefy the fat. The fat will then gently be sucked out and removed from your body whilst ensuring minimum damage to the surrounding tissues.
5 AFTER THE PROCEDURE
When the procedure is over, the nurses will fit you into a support garment and the doctor will provide you with pain killers and antibiotics. Procedures carried out at EF MEDISPA are walk-in walk-out daytime surgery, which does not require an overnight stay. Before you leave the clinic you will be booked for a review appointment with the doctor who will be there to access your recovery and monitor your progress.
We think that aftercare is significant not only to help fast recovery but also to ensure optimum results. Therefore, after the procedure, we offer a bespoke package of aftercare treatments where the patient will have the chance to have ultrasound, manual and electro lymphatic massages and other treatments designed to help the healing process.
You will be able to discuss the aftercare program from your first consultation with your treatment coordinator, as well as the doctor and nurses before and after the surgery.
Before and After
Vaser Liposuction FAQs
What is Vaser?
It is an advanced liposuction procedure that removes unwanted body fat whilst contouring the body at the same time. Hailed as an alternative to traditional liposuction, this advanced ultrasound technology is used to gently reshape your body.
How does Vaser differ from Liposuction?
This innovative technique can distinguish between healthy tissue, nerves and blood vessels from the targeted fat to be removed. The targeted fat can therefore be removed whilst preserving healthy tissue and allowing for rapid healing which traditional Lipo is unable to achieve.
How does Vaser Lipo work?
The selected area to be reshaped is filled with a specific type of saline solution numbing the area and shrinking the blood vessels, helping to reduce blood loss and bruising. This also makes it easier for the fatty tissue to be broken up by the ultrasound energy. A small probe is inserted into the selected area and ultrasound energy is transmitted (similar to that used for cataract removal from the eye) to break up fatty tissue while preserving other important tissues. Finally, a gentle suction process removes the liquefied fat whilst keeping damage to the surrounding tissue at a minimum.
What body areas can be treated with Vaser?
Any part of the body can be treated. Particularly popular areas include: abdomen, love handles, male chests, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, back, arms, chin and neck areas.
How much fat can be removed with Vaser?
There are limits to how much fatty tissue can be safely taken from the body. During your complimentary consultation at EF MEDISPA you will find out what Vaser Lipo can do for you and how much fat can be removed. Please keep in mind that this procedure is not intended as a weight loss solution. The goal is to create a slimmer and more defined silhouette.
Where is Vaser performed?
It is performed at EF MEDISPA’s Kensington clinic which has a specially designed treatment room licensed by the Care Quality Commission. EF MEDISPA is open 7 days a week, which means there is always someone on hand to answer your queries after the procedure.
Who will perform the procedure?
EF MEDISPA has a dedicated medical team of surgeons who have been specially trained in this procedure, and skilled nurses who can provide expert aftercare.
How soon will I see my results?
Results can vary with every individual, the amount of fat removed, the number of areas treated, and so on. Though many have reported they see results immediately after the procedure, it may take up to 3-6 months to see a final result. It is important that you establish realistic expectations through discussion during your consultation at EF MEDISPA.
Can I gain weight after having Vaser? If so does the fat migrate to other areas?
After having Vaser, should you experience weight gain or loss, it will tend to be proportionately distributed over your entire body. Once you have fat removed with Vaser it is gone, however maintaining a healthy lifestyle through proper diet and exercise is required in order for the fat not to return or migrate. Normal ageing changes can also be expected.
Is Vaser right for me?
If you are frustrated by the resistance of certain body areas to diet and exercise, Vaser can provide a solution. If you are healthy and seeking a fast, low-pain solution to losing stubborn fat deposits, then Vaser could be your answer.
