Stubborn pockets of fat that just won’t shift are a common modern-day complaint. However slim and toned we strive to be, it is unrealistic for most of us to follow the stringent diet and exercise routine required to achieve a model physique.
Body reshaping and fat reduction treatments are fast growing in popularity but what makes VASER stand out from the rest? At Wimpole Aesthetics we believe it is VASER’s ability to produce predictable and effective results combined with minimal downtime and discomfort.
Why choose Wimpole Aesthetics for your VASER treatment?As with any aesthetic treatment, practitioner choice is an essential component and VASER is no different. Dr Joshua Berkowitz is one of London’s leading aesthetic practitioners and he has performed hundreds of VASER procedures. All VASER procedures at Wimpole Aesthetics are individually tailored, carefully planned and excellently executed. We place no time limit on our procedures – Dr Berkowitz will work as long and as hard as needed to produce the result you are expecting. Your VASER procedure is performed in a state-of-the-art operating theatre at our central London clinic. Dr Berkowitz is ably supported by a carefully chosen support team and every attention has been paid to patient comfort. Furthermore, our aftercare is unrivalled.

Who is best suited for VASER?VASER is not a weight-loss procedure, but instead is best suited for men and women who are relatively toned but may have stubborn pockets of fat that they are unable to eradicate. For those that want that bit more from their body reshaping treatment, Wimpole Aesthetics now offers VASER Hi-Def which produces a more athletic, sculpted shape. Successful VASER Hi-Def candidates are those that are able to maintain their results post-procedure. If you are interested in VASER Hi-Def click here.
How does VASER work?VASER utilises ultrasound energy to break down fat cells prior to them being removed with a suction device. VASER is able to do this with minimal downtime because it only targets the fat cells and causes little damage to the surrounding tissue. Also the fat cells are liquefied and therefore easier to remove. Tiny incisions are made in the treatment area, the probe is inserted and ultrasound energy directed into the fat cells. Then a suction device is used to gently remove the emulsified fat cells and create the naturally beautiful contours you expect from a VASER procedure. Results will be immediate and once the swelling and bruising has subsided you’ll get a clear indication of your new contours. There will then be a gradual and continual improvement and at six months you will be able to see your final shape.
What is the recovery process like after VASER?VASER is performed under local anaesthetic and you will be able to return home straight after your procedure. There is minimal downtime after a VASER procedure and you will be able to resume normal activities within 48 hours and return to work within a week. More rigorous physical activity can be resumed after a month when you are fully healed, but Dr Joshua Berkowitz can advise you further at your VASER follow-up appointment. Our London VASER patients report that there is a small degree of discomfort after a VASER procedure and often a sensation of tightness or stiffness in the treatment area, but that it is easily managed with over-the-counter painkillers.

Which areas can VASER treat?There are certain areas of the body that are prone to storing fat. These problem areas respond well to VASER:
- Male Chest Area
- Love Handles or Flanks
- Thighs and Saddlebags
VASER vs Liposuction: what are the benefits of VASER?
- VASER does much less damage to the body – liposuction can destroy nerves, blood vessels and surrounding tissue.
- VASER is less traumatic than liposuction so there is significantly less bruising and swelling.
- VASER causes 70 per cent less blood loss compared to normal liposuction.
- VASER is performed under a local anaesthetic avoiding the potential complications associated with a general anaesthetic that is often required for a liposuction procedure
- VASER has been shown in clinical studies to produce more skin tightening than any other form of liposuction or body reshaping.
- VASER produces immediate results which are further enhanced over the following six months.
- VASER can be performed on large or small areas and multiple areas can be targeted in one procedure.
- VASER can target fat cells very close to the skin’s surface, unlike liposuction, so it produces fantastic results in more delicate areas such as the neck and underneath the chin.
