Vaser Liposuction in London
Vaser Lipo is a revolutionary fat removal method that offers the most popular body sculpting option today. It is well suited for all areas of the body – especially those resistant to diet and exercise – and allows for a much more precise targeting of fat pockets compared to traditional liposuction options.
The procedure is much less invasive and results in a smooth, natural looking appearance, with minimal downtime.
Vaser Liposuction is a time-tested and trusted method, using ultrasound technology that has been safely used in medical applications for years.
It was approved by the FDA for body contouring in 2002, and has become the most widely utilized lipo surgery in the UK and worldwide with tens of thousands of procedures performed successfully.
It is a safe alternative to traditional Liposuction with many upsides and less risk as it is a less invasive surgery.
Vaser surgery has become the method of choice in body sculpting. What distinguishes this technique is that the ultrasound technology it uses can differentiate body fat from other tissues such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissues, thereby only targeting fat and causes no harm to these other areas.
How does Vaser Lipo work?
There are two anaesthetic methods for the surgery, it can be done with local anaesthetic (only required in rare cases when several body parts are treated at once) or as a “twilight surgery”, which is a superficial sleep state, that is far safer and faster to recover from. The whole procedure can usually be performed between 1 to 3 hours depending on the size of the area being treated and the amount of fat needed to be removed.
This next-generation device gently delivers ultrasonic vibrations to the treatment area which liquifies only the fat tissues which is then removed by a small cannula or is excreted naturally from the body. By removing only the fat, while leaving all other tissues such as blood vessels and connecting tissues intact, your skin retains it’s smoot and even appearance after the surgery. This minimises discomfort and bruising and allows for much faster healing and recovery
Vaser Lipo is an advanced fat reduction surgery suitable for both men and women and can treat just about any areas of the body including abdomen, waist, back, thighs, arms, buttocks, chest, neck, chin, knees, ankles and breasts. It can also be the right solution for patients who are not overweight and only need sculpting in very specific areas.
Vaser is ideal for both the removal of a significant amount of fat and precise body sculpting. It gives smooth and predictable results, whilst being gentle and minimally invasive. It causes minimal pain and bruising and scarring.

What should you expect after your Vaser Liposuction?
You will be able to return home within a few hours following the procedure. Initial numbness, some minor bruising and general tenderness may occur, but these side effects should disappear within a week. You may be required to wear a special compression garment for a few days.
As part of Dr. Joffily’s commitment to excellent patient after-care, a series of check-ups are scheduled to ensure rapid and effective recovery. Results can often be seen immediately, the final results will become visible after a few weeks but usually within a month.
As with most cosmetic procedures, it is recommended that you wait a couple of weeks before you do any rigorous physical activity. To help speed-up recovery, it is recommended that you do a course of MLD Massage therapy and follow a healthy diet.
