Vaser Liposuction Risks

Risks of Vaser Liposuction

Vaser lipo originates from America and uses next-generation technology that is progressively replacing traditional lipsosuction methods. EF MEDISPA is one of the first clinics to bring this technology to the UK.

Vaser lipo utilises ultrasonic technology that can emulsify excess fat cells in the body, making it easier to remove from the body. This is much safer than traditional liposuction methods, which works by pushing and pulling a tube through the fat layer, to eventually break up the fat tissue. This process can damage other vital body tissues in the process.

Because of the safer nature of Vaser, and because Vaser lipo at EF MEDISPA is performed using Conscious Sedation (also known as ‘twilight surgery’), the side effects and risks from Vaser lipo are minimal.*

What are the side effects of Vaser lipo?
There are very few risks or side effects from Vaser lipo. Patients can experience some bruising and perhaps some swelling following the procedure, but a personalised aftercare programme at EF MEDISPA will ensure that all side effects from Vaser are kept to a minimum.

All patients at EF MEDISPA have a personal consultation before any treatment is commenced, to assess your personal needs and to check that you are suitable for Vaser lipo.

Will I experience weight gain in the future or will the fat migrate to other areas?
This is a common misconception with Vaser lipo and is not a side effect associated with Vaser. Once the fat has been removed from your body, it has gone and, presuming you maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly, the fat will not return.

If you gain weight after your Vaser lipo treatment, it is usually distributed evenly across your whole body.
