Vaser Lipo Body Contouring

An essential tool in high-definition body contouring, the ultimate human sculpting procedure

Vaser Lipo Body Contouring in Dublin, at Venus Medical

Vaser hi-def or high-definition liposculpture is an advanced form of body contouring that improves muscular definition in the abdomen, waist, chest, and arms.

Vaser represents a significant improvement on older, traditional liposuction techniques. Using gentle ultrasonic energy probes, fat is effortlessly liquefied before being removed through gentle suction. 

Since ultrasound energy is selective for fat, using Vaser means less bruising and swelling and a smoother result compared to numerous other methods such as tickle lipo, power-assisted lipo, or traditional liposuction.

Vaser has also shown in clinical studies to tighten skin more than basic liposuction.

Dr Prendergast performs hi-def Vaser under local anaesthesia. You can find out if you are a suitable candidate for this procedure during a Vaser consultation with Dr Prendergast.

Treatment step by step

  • Before the procedure you will receive some tablets to make you feel relaxed.
  • Once Dr Prendergast artistically marks the treatments areas, the procedure is performed.
  • The areas to be treated are numbed using tumescent anaesthesia.
  • Diluted anaesthetic fluid is sprinkled slowly into the fat using a cannula through tiny 4mm incisions.
  • You will feel a pressure sensation and after a couple of minutes the entire area feels numb, making the Vaser procedure painless.
  • Narrow Vaser probes are used to emulsify or “melt” the fat effortlessly whilst preserving other tissues under the skin. 
  • The contouring begins. 
  • Dr Prendergast uses straight and curved cannulas to gently and expertly remove fat and contour the body.
  • Immediately after the procedure, which can take 1-3 hours depending on what areas are contoured, a special compression garment is worn.  
  • This helps reduce swelling, provide comfort, and facilitates a smooth result by encouraging skin tightening. 


  • Although you cannot drive immediately after the procedure, you can go home in the company of a friend or relative. 
  • Most patients return to work within 2-3 days. 
  • You can expect to see results straight away, but these improve during the following 1-3 months.
