Vaser High Definition (VHD) is a combination of advanced VASER ultra-sonic assisted
liposuction with the technique of a skilled surgeon that sculpts and fine-tunes
the appearance of your body. VHD allows you to have the appearance of muscle definition on certain parts of your body where you feel it is lacking. This treatment however, is not suitable for large scale fat removal but can be a tool in achieving a more toned looking body.
Suitability for VASER HighDef (VHD)
VASER HighDef is not a weight loss system, and ought only to be used to
contour or sculpt your body shape. It would be appropriate for someone
who is very close to their ideal body weight but who is having problems
getting rid of fat in some areas or toning up specific muscles. It is best
if you are fit and healthy, with no previous health problems, and aware of
the risks of the procedure. It is likely that you will be asked to stop
smoking for a period of time surrounding VHD. VASER HighDef is not suitable
for those who:
- Have recently lost a lot of weight
- Have any muscle or skin laxity
- Have high amounts of stretch marks in the stomach area
- Are considered very overweight
- Have serious health problems

VHD can enable people of a normal weight and who are physically fit to
achieve their ideal body shape. It can make you appear more muscular and
athletic, and is usually used by people who are fit and healthy but want to
enhance their body. If you are struggling to obtain the body shape you

VASER HighDef (VHD) Consultation
Prior to VHD surgery you will meet with your surgeon for a consultation to assess you and your suitability and whether or not your expectations for the surgery can be achieved. It also gives you the chance to ask any questions and to interact with your surgeon, covering the risks of the procedure.
Some surgeons use computer technology to show you what you might be able to
expect from the surgery. Often they will take photos so that you can see the
before and after effects.
You will be given some time to consider the
surgery, to allow you to weigh up the risks and the advantages the surgery.
Where VASER HighDef (VHD) can be used
VHD is mainly used for the stomach, especially for men. An ideal body may
have a chiselled six-pack, and this is something that VHD can help men to
achieve. Likewise with women, a flat, toned stomach is often highly valued,
and VHD can be used to sculpt the abdomen into your perfect shape. VHD can
also be used to help tone the thighs, arms, back or buttocks, enabling you
to gain a more athletic body.
Procedure for Vaser HighDef (VHD)
The procedure for VHD is very similar to that of VASER liposuction. You
will receive a local anaesthetic applied to the area to be
treated and a saline solution is injected to help numb the area and
prepare it for the probe. This solution contains a blood constrictor to
lessen bruising and bleeding, as well as the anaesthetic. A probe, about
3mm wide, is inserted through small incisions which emits Ultrasonic
waves that break down the fat cells, allowing them to be removed quickly. This means that your surgeon
can effectively sculpt the fat cells so that they enhance your figure and
the muscles underneath. You will be awake for the procedure, and will be
able to return home the same day.
Cost of VASER HighDef (VHD)
The cost of your VHD surgery will very much depend on how much fat you have removed, and how many areas you have treated. Generally treatments
start at £2300 for one area, increasing as additional areas or
more sculpting is done.
