We’ve heard of Liposuction, so what is VASER Lipo? Dr David Chin clarifies…

Vaser Liposuction


Vaser Lipo is being heralded as a less traumatic and less invasive form of liposuction extremely effective and useful in areas that would not be as successfully contoured by the traditional methods of liposuction. Dr David Chin, based in Auchenflower and Caboolture in QLD, is the first Queensland plastic surgeon to have a VASER liposuction machine in his practice and has over five years experience with the procedure. We were able to chat to him and ask about this new development in liposuction that is getting awesome results.

Firstly though, let’s briefly look at what is involved in traditional liposuction. Deeper layers of fatty tissue are injected by an anaesthetic called Lignocaine and saline; a cannula (thin, hollow tube-like apparatus) is then inserted through a small incision and worked back and forward in order to break down the fat; which is then suctioned out to create a more contoured shape in the desired area.

So, how does this differ to VASER liposuction and why is VASER considered a superior option? Dr Chin says, “The VASER liposuction uses ultrasound wave energy to “shake off” fat cells during liposuction. This results in less force used and a much less painful recovery period and bruising. However, the principal benefit is this “ultrasound energy” also tightens or contracts the skin, producing a much better end result after liposuction and contouring.”

Advantages of VASER Liposuction:

  • Uses sound wave energy to break down the fat;
  • Less invasive;
  • Uses a lighter anaesthesia;
  • Helps to tighten the skin as opposed to traditional liposuction creating more loose skin if anything;
  • Less downtime and better recovery.
