Vaser Liposuction (Liposculpture) is the procedure of reshaping the male or female body by removing pockets of excess fat from the body. The areas most commonly reshaped by Liposculpture (Liposuction) include the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck.

Not everyone is suitable for liposuction. Read the Your Consultation section below for more about costs.

We consider the Vaser Liposculpture system to be the most effective and safest form of liposuction. This method uses the latest Ultrasound technology, as well as finer instruments than traditional Liposcuction, resulting in less post operative bruising, swelling and pain compared to other traditional Liposuction techniques.

The Vaser Liposcultpture (Liposuction) technique also enables more precise body sculpting and targeting of specific areas resulting in smoother, more even results. Below is an animation that outlines the Liposculture procedure.

Vaser Liposculpture Standard Liposuction
      • Ultrasound Based
      • Tissue selectivity (leaves important tissues largely intact) resulting in:
            • Smooth contouring
            • Low to minimal pain
            • Resume activities quickly
            • Minimal swelling and bruising
            • Gentle wrist motion by surgeon resulting in precise sculpting and contour firmness
      • Designed to treat common as well as delicate areas such as arms, chin, neck, knees and inner thighs
      • Suction Based
      • Tissue damage (inability to differentiate fat from nerves,blood vessels,connective tissues) resulting in :
            • Potential for uneven results
            • Potential for painful recovery
            • Potential for lengthy recovery
            • Potential for swelling and bruising
            • Large ‘mechanical’ arm movement by surgeon which restricts the ability to achieve sculpting
      • Commonly used on the abdomen thighs, hips, and love handles (elevated risk when treating delicate areas)

An interesting and important area to consider here concerning Liposculpture (Liposuction) is the subject of permanent results. The human body has a fixed number of fat cells; while fat cells within us may change in size and shape as we lose or gain weight, the actual number of fat cells within our bodies does not change. Therefore Liposuction directly targets the problem areas by reducing the number of fat cells in that specific area. Although liposuction in general does remove fat cells, this operation does not remove ALL the fat cells in an area that has been treated. SO, it is possible for fat to re-accumulate after it has been removed with any liposuction procedure. A person’s body fat content is dynamic and does change. There is no procedure/operation for permanent fat removal.

Reasons For Choosing To Have Liposculpture (Liposuction).

The most important point to raise here is that Liposculpture (Liposuction) should not be seen as a substitute for weight loss achieved by employing a healthy diet and exercise program in ones own life. It should be seen as a tool for changing your body shape where fat deposits are resistant to change from a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Vaser Liposculpture (Liposuction) – Making The Best Choices For You.

To make the best choices for you and give you the results you wish to achieve, it is important to have the right information and to be guided through the process by an experienced Cosmetic Surgeon. The ideal candidate for Liposculpture (Liposuction) is someone reasonably close to their ideal weight. Also, being in sound medical condition aids significantly in the healing process. Younger patients with moderate amounts of fat and good skin tone generally achieve excellent results with Vaser Liposculpture, as their skin readily retracts when the fat is removed.

Older patients with diminished skin elasticity need to weigh up the benefits of the procedure against the possibility that the skin many not entirely retract. Dr Goldman is an expert in this area and will advise you of the appropriate volume of fat which can be removed to minimise sagging skin. A better outcome may be achieved with smaller multiple procedures over time. In saying this though, the Vaser Liposculpture system, is we consider, the most advanced system of Liposuction and has a proven track record of reducing the need for follow up treatments compared to standard Liposuction.

During a professional consultation with Dr Goldman, he will guide you through the options available and provide you with extensive reading material to take home which will assist you in the decision making process.

Your Consultation For Liposculpture (Liposuction).

Not everyone is suitable for liposuction. It depends on the amount of fat excess in a particular area as well as the quality of the skin. Skin with stretch marks implies a loss of elasticity and performing liposuction in this situation makes the skin wrinkled and saggy.

It is not possible to quote on liposuction costs without Dr Goldman actually seeing you. The reason is that the amount of fat to be removed and different areas to be treated, determines the time required for the surgery and anaesthetic, the different areas that people want to have treated are varied and in many combinations as well as the fact that people often want liposuction combined with other operations.

However, Dr Goldman may well be able to give an accurate estimate (not an actual quote) if you are prepared to email him photos of the areas you wish to have treated

It is important for you to have positive but realistic expectations regarding what Vaser Liposculpture (Liposuction) can achieve for you. Dr Goldman as a Cosmetic Surgeon is an expert in this area and will assist you in defining the best body shape that can be achieved. As part of the consultation process, Dr Goldman will carefully review your areas of concern and recommend the shaping that will work best for you.


During the complete process, from your initial consultation, right through to aftercare, Dr Goldman and his staff are committed to ensuring that you achieve the best results from your cosmetic procedure by offering you the highest level of professional care and on going support.
