Would you pay £15,000 for an instant six-pack? Father, 39, gets rid of his ‘dad bod’ with a targeted liposuction treatment to remove fat from his abdomen
- Daniel Tills, 39 from Weston-super-mare, had Vaser liposuction costing £15,000
- Admitted he felt he had to have ‘something done’ to keep up with glam wife
- Procedure saw him develop a six-pack overnight – with the results long-lasting
A father-of-two who struggled to lose weight has transformed his ‘dad bod’ thanks to a revolutionary new treatment.
Daniel Tills, 39, from Weston-super-mare, underwent Vaser liposuction, which costs in the region of £15,000 and gave him an ‘instant’ six-pack.
The procedure selectively removes small deposits of fat surrounding specific muscle groups, rather than simply reducing the overall volume.
And it’s reportedly seen a spike in demand in recent months, with London-based cosmetic surgeon Dr Grant Hamlet receiving up to 50 enquiries a week and new appointment slots being booked up within two hours.

Speaking to FEMAIL, Daniel said he felt he needed to take drastic action as he approached 40.
‘My wife has had cosmetic treatments over the past few years to maintain her beauty,’ he explained.
‘I felt as if I needed to have something done to keep up. Having two children – a 12-year-old who wants a cool dad and a 20-year-old gym goer – I didn’t want to look out of place on the family holiday.
‘I had done a few fad diets in the past including the Alevere [an extreme form of the Atkins diet] and Slimming World and was going to the gym three to four times a week.
‘But for some reason – while I’d lost weight and importantly the dangerous visceral type – I just wasn’t seeing the results that I wanted to and lacked the muscle definition that I wanted to see.’

Determined to change things, Daniel went to visit Dr Hamlet at his Harley Street clinic for the Vaser procedure.
‘Up until that point I hadn’t had any other cosmetic treatments – relying only on a skincare regime, so I was quite nervous about what to expect,’ he admitted.
‘Dr Hamlet reassured me and explained everything I needed to know about the procedure along with a blood test during the consultation to ensure it was safe.
‘The operation would work to contour my stomach to create abs overnight by taking away the stubborn fat around the muscles there already hidden.’
Two weeks later Daniel returned for his appointment, where he underwent a general anaesthetic.
As long as Daniel maintains a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet, the results will last indefinitely. Pictured left before with his wife and right after
‘I went in for my operation at about 12.30pm and before I knew it the procedure had been completed and I was awake again – with abs,’ he recalled.
‘I was given two days of medication to help to combat the initial pain from the procedure and then around a week later I was able to walk properly and felt much better.
‘I took Dr Hamlet’s advice and had lymphatic manual drainage twice a week for the next month with Raddy Dimitrova to get rid of any build up of excess fluid from the operation as well as wearing a custom made body garment.
‘While I’d seen instant results after the operation, it was three to six months before I saw my best results.
‘Now, so long as I maintain a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet these results will last indefinitely.’
Vaser lipo differs from liposuction in that fat is removed in a more precise fashion in order to highlight definition and improve contour, at the same time as de-bulking. Pictured: Daniel on holiday with his wife
He added: ‘It has really changed my life and really cannot praise the Vaser method enough.
‘I still enjoy going to the gym three times a week but most importantly feel so much more confident in myself.
‘I don’t feel like an old dad anymore. I’d have the procedure done again in a heartbeat.’
According to recent data released from BAAPS, liposuction is one of the most popular modern cosmetic treatments.
And while conventional liposuction involves the use of a suction device to bulk remove fat and is an effective method for reducing volume, Vaser lipo offers a whole new combination of techniques and technology.

Aptly termed ‘Liposculpture’, Vaser lipo differs from liposuction in that fat is removed in a more precise fashion in order to highlight definition and improve contour, at the same time as de-bulking.
Dr Hamlet told FEMAIL: ‘It’s a brilliant procedure and suitable for almost all body types – I’ve found that it works particularly well on people who work out at the gym but find it difficult to achieve the perfect six-pack abs – as well as overweight patients who need to lose volume and contour their shape.’
And it’s not just to reduce weight and contour the body either; face lifts, breast lifts, and breast augmentations often rely on the procedure and its fat grafting to achieve the best results.
What is Vaser liposuction and how does it work?
Vaser liposuction is a revolutionary fat reduction procedure that can be used for minor touch-ups as well as major transformations.
It can be used to treat large areas of unwanted fat or smaller very specific areas to finely sculpt, adding definition, such as in the double chin area.
Traditional liposuction procedures involve the removal of fat deposits using suction. This process is not tissue-selective and will remove not only unwanted fat but also cause damage to surrounding blood vessels, nerve tissue, and connective tissue.
Due to the high suction levels required, the trauma to the patient is always much higher with traditional liposuction, which leads to larger areas of bruising and longer downtime.
Vaser lipo uses ultrasonic technology which is tissue selective; the ultrasound energy targets unwanted fat whilst preserving important tissues such as nerves, blood vessels, and collagen. The patient suffers less trauma and therefore less bruising and a much quicker recovery time.
It can help with those stubborn areas, such as love handles, that will not shift through diet and rigorous exercise alone and can improve your overall shape by adjusting your proportions.
The Vaser lipo treatment is comfortable enough to be performed under local anesthetic, meaning that you will be awake throughout the surgery. You will be able to leave the office and return to the comfort of your own home following your fat reduction procedure.
Once the numbing agent has taken effect, the surgeon will make small incisions near the treatment area. These incisions will be very small, leaving minimal scarring.
Through the incisions, the doctor will insert a thin cannula that uses ultrasound wavelengths to heat and melt the existing fat.
The fat will then be removed from the body through the cannula using high power suction, like that of a vacuum.
This process will be repeated to each treatment area until the desired results have been achieved. Once finished, Dr. Hamlet will choose the incisions using sutures and you will be wrapped in compression garments and taken to the recovery area.
