What Is 4D Vaser Liposuction?
4D vaser liposuction is the latest cosmetic procedure that causes the removal of unwanted body fat using advanced ultrasonic technology. The ultrasound method targets the selected fat and contours your body without damaging important nerves and blood vessels. The fat is liquefied and suctioned away, resulting in the desired shape and definition of natural looking enhanced muscles.
Since this procedure is more controlled and precise, it requires a highly trained and skilled plastic surgeon to perform the surgery. Some common areas for vaser liposuction are arms, chest, chin, neck, upper back, waistline, stomach, hips, thighs, and buttocks.
Plastic surgeons tend to favor 4D vaser liposuction over other procedures because of the advantage it carries over the use of the unwanted body fat. The excess fat can be transferred to other areas of your body like your buttocks or your thighs to make them more plump, and because you are reinjecting your own fat, it can give you a longer and more natural looking result with no risk of rejection.
Additionally, patients tend to recover more quickly since the procedure is minimally-invasive, leaving important tissues intact and making it nearly painless. You would only suffer from bruising, swelling, and reduced bleeding in the treatment areas.
Even though the treatment is very effective against large bodies of fat, it is designed for those who are looking to lose a little extra fat, thus tightening their body and making a more defined look and muscular appearance. Ideally, patients who are about 15 pounds from their dream weight have the best results from vaser liposuction.
How Does 4D Vaser Liposuction Work?
4D vaser liposuction works by infusing the targeted area with tumescent fluid, a chemical cocktail made of epinephrine and lidocaine. It provides anesthesia and reduces pain at the treatment area, decreases swelling, bleeding, and bruising, and improves post-operation recovery.
Vaser refers to the vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance, the newest generation of ultrasound assisted liposuction. This liposuction technique emulsifies and liquefies the fat with the vibration probe, weakening the bonds that hold the fat together and making it easier to extract. As mentioned above, this technique does not harm the surrounding nerves, vessels, and tissues of the body.
The probing is gentle and precise, perfect for aiming at the smaller targeted areas like the neck, chin, thighs, and arms. It’s both powerful and gentle where it breaks the connection the fat has to your muscle without damaging your other important tissues. This makes vaser liposuction the ideal surgery for sculpting athletic physique.
After the fat is liquefied, liposuction is performed using curved cannulas, thin tubes inserted into your body to drain the fat cells and liquid, and to sculpt the curves of your body. Straight cannulas are then used to fine-tune the details of the arrangement of muscles which results in a finely sculpted athletic body.
This advanced technique of liposuction is the only procedure that has been clinically proven to cause minimal bleeding and minimal risk of contour inconsistency when the skin retracts when compared to traditional and conventional liposuction.
After the vaser liposuction, infrasonic power-assisted liposuction is used to smoothly contour your abdomen. The final option is renuvion or J-Plasma for a finishing touch. It helps with smoothing the contours and furthering skin retraction for a more defined muscular look.
Advantages of 4D Vaser Liposuction
If you want to get rid of excess fat and reshape your body the way you want it to look, vaser liposuction is something you want to look more into. Sometimes no matter how hard you exercise and diet, you don’t seem to be getting closer to the body shape you want. However, everybody has abs. It’s just hidden underneath the layer of fat on your stomach.
4D vaser liposuction can help you enhance your underlying muscles so they look well-defined and ripped like six-pack abs. Women generally prefer the fat to be transferred from the abdomen, back, arms, and legs to the buttocks while men prefer the fat to be transferred to the chest or shoulders.
Despite the long-lasting results of 4D vaser liposuction, you can’t just rely on the treatment to keep you in shape. Overtime, your weight will eventually come back if you don’t exercise. You have to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle if you want the results to stay permanent. The surgery was just to help you along the way.
Another advantage of vaser liposuction is that the vaser generates heat which helps the targeted fat dissolve more easily and helps the skin tighten. The skin retraction rate is over 50% when compared to standard liposuction procedures and in addition to that, traditional and conventional liposuction does not have the thermal energy feature.
After just one procedure, the recovery period is short because there’s less physical trauma. Patients tend to go back to their regular schedule within a week of the surgery whereas traditional liposuction would require at least two weeks, sometimes more.
Also, the satisfaction rate after just one procedure is high. You can expect to see results after three to six months after the swelling has gone down from your surgery. Some might even take even longer before you see results. The results will be clearly defined after your body has had a chance to settle down into your new and improved form.
Disadvantages of 4D Vaser Liposuction
4D vaser liposuction may be recommended because it uses the latest ultrasound technology when compared to traditional liposuction, but just like every surgery out there, it doesn’t come without some risks. Some risks can be:
· Discomfort from infections; swelling, inflammation, pain, and numbness
o Shortness of breath
o Fatigue or exhaustion
· Scar tissue formation; contour deformation
· Loose skin
· Pain and aches
These risks and complications can be zeroed out with an experienced and professional plastic surgeon. Always consult your physician and your plastic surgeon of choice before the surgery to see if there are any medical conditions that would be detrimental to the surgery as well as after the surgery to make sure nothing was damaged in the process.
There have been some side effects from liposuction in small cases where there were contour irregularities like dimples, wrinkles, grooves, and folds after the surgery was performed. These can be caused by excessive liposuction, inappropriate clothing, or bad posture which causes the skin to deform. These contour complications can be prevented by following your plastic surgeon’s post-operative procedures.
After Your 4D Vaser Liposuction Surgery
As mentioned above, you can’t expect to see results right away. There is going to be a range of three to six months before you start seeing any real results because your treated areas will be a little swollen and bruised.
Vaser liposuction is permanent, you just have to help it stay that way. It really depends on if you’re following your post-operative protocols. It can really be as simple as wearing your specialized compression garments to help reduce the swelling and to keep the skin smoothly contracted to its new form. This needs to be done immediately right after your surgery and worn continuously to prevent the ugly folds and wrinkles from showing up on your newly contoured body.
Additionally, since your body was injected with anesthesia, you may need to drink lots of fluid to help drain the drugs from your body. Some plastic surgeons may require you to have lymphatic drainage sessions to help alleviate any of the discomforts you may feel from the swelling.
Once again, always consult your plastic surgeon before and after the surgery. They will know what you can do to best recover from the post-operative procedures.
