Liposuction using VASER
At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin we know that people come in all different shapes and sizes. Different people have areas that are predisposed to fat storage and despite rigorous diet and exercise, those unwanted bulges often persist. VASER lipo is an advanced method of liposuction which offers a safe alternative to traditional liposuction to rid yourself of those stubborn fat deposits and provide skin contraction yielding a smooth contour. VASER liposuction is performed under local numbing associated with fast recovery. Already, VASER Lipo has been the choice for thousands of men and women in Dublin.
Revolutionary VASER Body Contouring
Whether you’d like to lose a few bulges in traditional areas like your waist, thighs and tummy or finely sculpt your arms, chin and neck or chest, VASER Liposuction gives you the results you want. Using a focused ultrasonic energy, VASER Liposuction technology selectively targets specific areas of the body. Ultrasonic waves break up and separate fat cells for removal, while leaving vital tissues unharmed.
VASER Liposuction is so precise and gentle that patients typically report dramatic reshaping with minimal downtime. VASER Liposuction has the finesse to produce predictable even contour results — whereas traditional liposuction can result in lumpy or irregularly treated areas. We have been performing this procedure at the Dublin based cosmetic clinic since 2008.

The Science Behind VASER liposuction
Ultrasonic energy has been used for years in a wide array of medical applications – from catching that first glimpse of a baby to cleaning your teeth and fragmenting kidney stones. With this liposuction treatment platform, the controlled safe power of ultrasound is used to emulsify unwanted body fat for removal. VASER Liposuction uses ultrasonic energy that is tissue-selective for fat. The ultrasound energy target and emulsify unwanted fat, while preserving surrounding tissues such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. This selective fragmentation of unwanted fat cells promotes smooth contours and rapid healing. Maximum results and minimum downtime are what you can expect with VASER liposuction.
Superior liposuction technology
VASER liposuction uses a minimally invasive technique called LipoSelection to selectively break apart and gently remove unwanted fat.
To begin the procedure, the targeted area is injected with a physiological saline solution known as “tumescent fluid.” Tumescent fluid numbs the target area and shrinks local blood vessels to prevent bleeding. It also temporarily expands the volume of the targeted area, making fat cells easier to remove.
Small 3mm probes are then inserted into the body through tiny incisions. By resonating at a high ultrasonic frequency, the probes literally shake loose fat cells while leaving blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissues unharmed. Fat cells expand and breakdown during the process making them readily available for gentle removal.
The loose fat cells mix with the tumescent fluid, which is then removed from the body using precision suction. During the VASER liposuction procedure the skin is treated with ultrasonic waves energy causing it to heat. Heat generated from the ultrasound promotes skin contraction.
After the VASER Lipo, patients are prescribed a recovery protocol to promote maximum skin retraction and smooth results. We may recommend manual lymphatic massage (MLD) therapy to enhance results and speed recovery.
The VASER Liposuction Difference
Unlike traditional liposuction, VASER Lipo results in less trauma and fast recovery. With VASER Lipo, you can expect:
- Ability to shape and contour curves and definition, even in hard-to-fix spots
- Gentle removal of large quantities of fat
- Precise sculpting of delicate areas of the body like the chin , the saddlebags and man boobs
- Minimally invasive procedures that can be delivered in a comfortable, clinical setting
- Rapid recovery times
- Smooth, tight results
A Better Way to Get the Results You Want | “fast liposuction recovery”
With VASER Lipo, we can produce eye-catching results in just one session, without the pain and long downtime of typical liposuction treatments.
Most patients report superior results in one session, and faster recovery than traditional liposuction. Plus, VASER Liposuction is clinically proven to enhance skin tightening in treated areas.
Precise Body Sculpting Liposuction Treatments
VASER Lipo uses a process called LipoSelection to target specific areas of fat throughout the body. It’s powerful enough to target large areas of fat like the tummy and saddle bags, yet gentle enough to also treat delicate areas of the body, such as the neck and arms.
Safe Option to traditional liposuction
Typical liposuction aggressively removes fat, which can damage surrounding tissues and impose a longer recovery period. VASER Lipo is tissue-selective, meaning it can specifically target fat, while protecting nerves, blood vessels and connective tissues from damage. As a result, patients experience minimal pain and bruising and a quick return to normal activities.
Results & Recovery
- VASER Liposuction at the Dublin based cosmetic clinic is performed under local anaesthesia with twilight sedation.
- Unwanted fat is treated with VASER Lipo ultrasonic energy and gently removed from the body. The procedure may take from one hour to several hours depending on the number of areas being treated.
- Patients are provided with special compression garments to help their skin conform to their body’s new contours. A short period of rest (typically 12 hours) is recommended and return to normal daily activity is expected within a couple of days.
- Results begin to appear immediately after the VASER Lipo procedure and continue to improve with time as the tissues in the treatment area heal. Results are typically seen in about four to six months.
Recovery vary with the extensiveness of the procedure—the amount of fat removed, the number of sites treated, and so on. Most patients at Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic Dublin report that they see results immediately after the procedure. Patients continue to further improve, and skin tightens over the next 3 months later.
