Do you have any of these?
Many of us attempt to lead fairly healthy and active lives in a bid to improve our physical appearance. Yet, you may be one out of many who just can’t seem to budge specific areas of fat!
Diet and exercise alone hasn’t had a significate impact so, where do you start?
As we age, there are a number of different reasons for why it becomes harder to get rid of excess weight.
Our metabolisms slow down, our digestion changes, we become less active – often due to work or a more sedentary lifestyle, and there’s a growing body of evidence to suggest that the energy-burning brown fat in our bodies diminishes as we get older, while the calorie-storing white fat becomes more prevalent.
Fortunately, there are a growing number of treatment options beyond traditional liposuction that are designed to give you a fast, low-pain solution to losing stubborn fat deposits. The Chiltern Medical Clinic uses the VASER Lipo procedure as the answer!
To find out more about how we can use VASER Lipo treatment to sculpt your body and to understand the potential results and recovery process, we recommend that you book an initial free consultation. This is a fantastic, no-obligation opportunity to ask questions, find out more the procedure and decide whether this is the right treatment for you.

Fat Removal Frequently Asked Questions
VASER Lipo – also known as LipoSelection or Liposuction – is an advanced body contouring procedure that enables us to selectively remove unwanted body fat; this is an excellent alternative to the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction.
VASER Lipo uses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology designed to gently reshape your body. What distinguishes the VASER Lipo procedure is its ability to differentiate targeted fat from other important tissues – such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. The innovative VASER technology breaks up fat while preserving these other important tissues to promote smooth results and rapid healing.
First, we fill the area to be reshaped with a special saline solution that helps numb the site and shrink the blood vessels. We will make a small incision in your skin through which a small probe is inserted. This probe transmits sound energy to break up fatty tissue on contact. The liquefied fat is then removed through a gentle suction process designed to minimise damage to surrounding tissues.
VASER Lipo offers a fantastic alternative to traditional liposuction. It is very effective at removing fatty deposits and can be carried out under local anaesthetic. There are very few side effects associated with this procedure and it is much safer than some other fat removal techniques. Another benefit of VASER Lipo treatment is that it requires minimal downtime and offers quicker recovery than traditional liposuction.
I am a man and I have become increasingly self-conscious of my chest area, having gained weight recently. Can you help? I hate looking as though I have breasts!
Gynecomastia is a condition more commonly known as ‘man boobs’. It affects approximately 15% of adult men in the UK and is caused by excess fat in the chest area. This fat can be hard to shift, even if you’ve managed to lose weight elsewhere on your body, and we recognise that you may feel very self-conscious about this problem.
Fat removal – or VASER Liposuction – using the VASER Lipo or MicroLipo is a minimally-invasive procedure that can offer an effective alternative to surgery. It can be carried out as a day case under local anaesthetic and requires minimal downtime. This procedure also carries very few risks (you can read more about it below).
We will ask you to come in for an initial consultation, during which we will take a full medical history to assess your suitability for this treatment. During this consultation, we will discuss all the benefits and potential side effects, and will be happy to address any concerns or queries you might have. Please do ask questions as we believe it’s important that you have realistic expectations and a full understanding of any treatment you have at the Chiltern Medical Clinic.
VASER Lipo is a minimally invasive procedure performed under local anaesthetic; therefore, you will remain comfortable and awake throughout the procedure. You may feel a tugging sensation during the treatment but should not feel pain.
VASER Lipo is a very effective treatment and you may notice some immediate differences to the area that has been treated. The final result will be evident at around 3-6 months.
After VASER Lipo treatment, you may experience some swelling, bruising or tenderness for a few days. This will vary, depending on the extensiveness of the procedure, the amount of fat removed, the number of sites treated, and so on. You may be able to return to work and gentle daily activities the following day.
Before you have this treatment, we will talk you through your aftercare, explaining everything you need to know to help ensure the success of the procedure and reduce the risk of complications. We will also give you a printed handout to refer back to at any time and you are welcome to call either clinic on 01491 873 989 or 0118 958 2016 if you have any questions.
Should you experience weight gain or loss following your VASER Lipo procedure; it will tend to be proportionately distributed over your entire body. Once you have fat removed, it is gone and, as long as you follow a healthy lifestyle of proper diet and exercise, it will not return or migrate. However, because fat is necessary to a healthy body, some essential fat layers in any given site remain untreated. If you do gain a significant amount of weight, the remaining fatty tissue will expand. Normal ageing changes can also be expected.
The cost of VASER Lipo will vary according to the size of the area to be treated and the number of sessions required. We will need to see you for an initial free consultation to assess your individual case and recommend a treatment plan. We will give you a breakdown of the treatment costs at the same time.
