The VASER® company
VASER® has become a global leader in the field of ultrasonic liposuction. VASER® comes from the USA and has been investing in research and development of minimally invasive liposuction procedures for years. The VASER® device has been approved by the strict American Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since 2002.
How does the VASER® technology work?
The VASER® technology is a revolution in the field of liposuction and body shaping with ultrasound. Traditional liposuction methods have always been associated with pain and patients have always had to accept bruises, effusions of blood and swelling. This unwanted effects belong to the past. The VASER® method reduces these side effects to a minimum. With the VASER® , fat deposits can be removed with high precision.
Compared to alternative methods of liposuction, such as water jet assisted liposuction or laser liposuction, VASER® liposuction is not only particularly gentle but also particularly precise. The surrounding tissue is spared and the healing phase is significantly shortened.
The advantages of VASER ® Ultrasound Liposuction are obvious.

What exactly is VASERlipo ®, VASERhi-def ®, VASERsmooth ®?
VASERlipo ®: The most efficient way to get rid of fat in a targeted and gentle way
Permanently remove fat cushions
With a healthy and balanced diet and sufficient exercise, you can get rid of fat deposits. Unfortunately, this usually does not affect the parts of the body that are considered to be the weak points of the individual. Especially women’s riding breeches or a man’s chest can hardly be reduced even with targeted training.
If you want to reduce fat deposits at certain parts of your body, you should opt for liposuction, also known as lipo sculpting, body sculpting or body contouring. This is not only a particularly innovative method, but also a gentle one at the same time. With this method it is possible to shape the body specifically. The special feature: With this method, fat can not only be sucked off, but also transferred from one part of the body to another. In this case, experts refer to it as lipotransfer.
How does the VASERlipo® method work
With the VASERlipo® method, fat is extracted by ultrasound. This gentle method is so popular because fat can be removed from almost any part of the body. Not only stomach and hip fat, but also the unpleasant riding pants can be removed in this way. The method is even suitable for excess fat on the upper arms and chin. The working principle is simple: an ultrasound probe simply bursts the fat cells by making them vibrate. Then it is easy to suck off the cells.
Of course, liposuction is not intended to replace exercise, but rather to help shape the body aesthetically. If you do not achieve your desired figure despite sport, the VASERlipo® method is perfect for you.
With the VASER® we achieve an 80 – 95% vitality of the removed body fat. This makes the fat obtained during liposuction with the VASER® ideal for subsequent autologous fat transplantation.
Possible lipotransfer treatments are:
- Breast augmentation with autologous fat
- Equalization of asymmetrical breasts of different sizes
- Lip spraying with own fat

Waist, Hips, Upper arms
Body Contouring with VASERhi-def ®
The art of gentle body contouring
The VASERhi-def® method is an aesthetic treatment with which muscles can be gently made visible in a targeted and particularly precise manner.
The method is suitable for contouring the following muscle groups:
- Abdominal muscles, six-pack
- chest musculature
- upper arm muscles
Many people dream of a defined musculature. Even professional athletes with a low percentage of body fat are often not one hundred percent satisfied with their appearance. Although muscles such as the six-pack are present, they are hardly visible due to the fat cells above them.
This is exactly where the VASER hi-def® method comes in and can make muscles on the abdomen, chest and upper arms permanently visible. By removing the fat around the muscle groups, a modelled, athletic appearance is created that makes muscles appear more defined. The advantage of the VASERhi-def® method is that we work very precisely and can gently remove even the tiniest amounts of fat that overlay the muscles or impair the muscle contours.
The result is particularly natural and by no means artificial. But this is not the only advantage of the procedure: hardly any visible scars remain and important tissue structures are spared. The downtimes are very short, the regeneration takes place very quickly and you can resume your usual activities very shortly after the operation.
VASERsmooth ®: Eliminate Cellulite at the Roots
Permanent successful removal of cellulite
Cellulite is not a medical problem, but the unsightly dents on the buttocks and thighs are perceived by many as a big flaw.
There are countless ways to treat cellulite, but very few are really effective and only moderately successful. It is a fact that women are much more often affected than men due to their weaker connective tissue.
In women, the connective tissue fibres, the so-called septa, run vertically. These in turn pull the epidermis point by point towards the deep tissue, which causes the typical orange peel skin.
The so-called VASERsmooth® method uses a special probe. With this probe, the septa are cut minimally invasively. The result is that the skin immediately relaxes and returns to its original and smooth shape. The ultrasound used has another positive side effect because it simultaneously tightens the connective tissue. During the VASER®-Smooth method, fat can be suctioned off at the same time as the skin is shaped. This method is so successful because it combats the actual cause of orange peel skin. Immediately after the procedure you will benefit from a much smoother skin.
