Vaser Liposuction

Vaser Liposuction London

VASER liposuction is a cutting-edge liposuction technique that enables fat deposits to be precisely targeted. Using ultrasound waves, this revolutionary fat removal treatment can offer incredible body contouring results with less downtime and less pain compared to other traditional liposuction treatments.

The average waistline reduction after a single treatment was about 1 inch (2.5 cm), which is typically equal to one dress or pant size. Full results are usually seen in 8 to 12 weeks, though individual results will vary.

Dr Cotrufo uses this state-of-the-art technology to produce eye-catching results in just one procedure. The procedure is tissue-selective, targeting fat while protecting other tissues from damage. Why choose Vaser Lipo?

Ultrasound energy is used to treat unwanted fat, loosening the cells from other tissues so they can be gently removed through a small tube. Depending on the number of areas being treated, the procedure can take as little as one hour or up to several hours.

The tissue is then removed with a traditional liposuction tube.

  • The Vaser lipo system is moved around the area to be treated, and treats for 30-60 minutes. The targeted area is injected with a special saline solution (tumescent fluid) to numb the area and shrink local blood vessels. It also temporarily expands the volume of the target area, making fat cells easier to remove.
  • Small probes are then inserted into the body through small incisions. These probes resonate at a high ultrasound frequency, shaking fat cells loose while leaving surrounding tissues intact.
  • The loose fat cells mix with the tumescent fluid and then removed from the body using special cannulas which help preserve the tissue matrix.
  • After surgery, patients are prescribed a recovery regimen to promote maximum skin retraction and smooth results. Your physician may recommend massage therapy to enhance results and speed recovery.


You will be able to leave the clinic straight after your procedure.

Over the next 8 to 12 weeks, your body naturally processes and removes the destroyed fat tissue.

  • Within 7 days following your surgery, depending on the area treated, you will have a wound check to assess your sutures which should gradually dissolve. Avoid getting the incision area wet as some warm moist environment harbours bacteria and may lead to a possible wound infection.
  • You should expect some bruising, swelling and pain after your procedure; some swelling may linger for several months.
  • You’ll be up and walking around comfortably after a day or two; please be aware that you may require some assistance in the first 24 to 48 hours following surgery.
  • Your garment must be worn for between four-six weeks, as advised by your doctor, to aid healing, reduce swelling and, most importantly help ensure a good contour to your treated areas
