Weight loss, pregnancy, and aging can bring many unwanted changes on your body. Fortunately, cosmetic surgeons offer body procedures that can restore a proportional figure. For a comprehensive treatment, many of these procedures can be combined in a single operation.
Have you been working out and watching what you eat with a goal of getting lean, toned abs, only to find you still have a stubborn fat layer that hides the evidence of your hard work? Unfortunately, if you are genetically inclined to store subcutaneous fat (fat beneath the skin) on your abdomen, then even the most rigorous fitness program may not be enough to reduce the stubborn fat that obscures your well-toned abs.
The good news is that you no longer have to let genetics stand between you and beautifully sculpted abs. Using a strategic combination of VASER LipoSelection and fat injections, we can remove fat in the precise locations needed to reveal your "six pack" musculature and, if needed, transfer fat to other areas to enhance your overall proportions. We call it 4D High-Def Body Contouring, and Dr. Haiavy and Dr. Tower are specially trained in this technique.
How 4D High-Def VASER Body Contouring works
4D High-Def Body Contouring is personalized to an individual patient's needs, but typically involves two steps. First, VASER LipoSelection is performed to break down fat deposits and remove them from the abdominal area. This ultrasound-assisted liposuction technique is ideal for sculpting the abs because we can remove fat very precisely without damaging surrounding skin, muscle, and nerve tissue. It is similar to our regular VASER LipoSelection treatment, but for 4D Body Contouring we use specialized cannulae that allow us to follow the relatively intricate contours of the ab muscles.

If desired, VASER LipoSelection can be complemented with fat injections to the breasts, buttocks, or other areas to highlight the "chiseled" look and further enhance body contours. Because VASER LipoSelection removes fat more cleanly compared to older liposuction techniques, it is ideal for purification and re-injection; in other words, the injected fat has a higher chance of surviving in its new location.
Why choose 4D VASER Body Contouring?
4D Body Contouring offers many benefits over traditional liposuction, particularly for patients who desire a more "chiseled" look to their abdominals:
4D Sculpting with VASER LipoSelection allows a surgeon to reduce fat in greater detail that follows the natural contours of the musculature
The ultrasound-assisted technique greatly reduces trauma to surrounding tissues for a reduced risk of complications and quicker recovery
Fat extracted using 4D is of optimal quality to be purified for injection into the breasts, buttocks, or other areas for enhanced results
It's not "abdominal etching"! Abdominal "etching" uses liposuction to carve the appearance of "abs" into the overlying fat layer, which often results in a "fake" appearance. 4D Body Contouring sculpts away fat to reveal your natural muscle tone, so what you see really is what you get.
Is 4D High-Def VASER LipoSelection right for me?
As with any highly specialized procedure, 4D is better suited to certain individuals with specific goals. The best results are experienced by patients who are physically fit, have good muscle tone, and are within 15 pounds or so of their ideal body weight. Good skin elasticity is also key, as your skin will need to contract readily to reveal the highly defined contours achieved through the procedure. You should also be a non-smoker or be willing to quit for a month before and after surgery to reduce risk for surgical complications.

4D VASER LipoSelection Surgery & Recovery
Our fellowship-trained cosmetic surgeons perform VASER LipoSelection as an outpatient procedure in our accredited surgical facility. VASER LipoSelection works with minimal impact on nerve, skin and blood vessels. As a result, patients typically experience a shorter, more comfortable recovery after the procedure compared to traditional liposuction, with minimal bruising and swelling. Most patients are back to work within the first week and are ready to gradually resume exercise within 2 to 3 weeks.

Final results are typically evident within a couple of months, and will last as long as you maintain your weight and adhere to a healthy diet and regular exercise program, including strength training for your abs. The difference is that after 4D Body Contouring, you should notice the positive effects of your workout regime more quickly than you did before.

The tummy tuck is a procedure that removes excess skin from the abdomen while tightening the underlying muscles. Related surgeries such as the panniculectomy, which removes only the excess skin, and lipoabdominoplasty, which removes fat as well, are appropriate for some patients.
If you desire larger, rounder buttocks, Inland Cosmetic Surgery offers buttock augmentation procedures. These techniques use special butt implants or a fat grafting technique called the Brazilian Butt Lift.
Mommy makeover procedures are intended to help women regain their figure after one or multiple pregnancies. The combination of procedures may vary, but often include breast surgery, a tummy tuck and liposuction.
Liposuction is a very popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the Inland Empire in which the removal of fat deposits reshapes a specific part of the body, such as the face, neck, arms, abdomen, hips, or thighs. People of all ages can benefit from liposuction, and it can be combined with other procedures like tummy tuck or mommy makeover.
If you desire higher, rounder or larger buttocks, you can turn to the skills of cosmetic surgeon Jacob Haiavy to undergo buttocks enhancement in Rancho Cucamonga as a means to achieve a shapelier figure.
Also known as Gluteoplasty, these procedures include different techniques designed for enhancing the shape and projection of a person’s buttocks, including the use of buttock implants.
What Can Buttocks Enhancement Do for Me?
A buttocks enhancement procedure with Dr. Haiavy can benefit you in several ways. You may want to consider the procedure if you are bothered by conditions such as:
Lack of buttock shape
For cosmetic enhancement, a Brazilian butt lift or buttock implant procedure will increase fullness and projection. These techniques can be combined with liposuction to further enhance the contour of the back, buttocks and thighs.
To undergo buttock augmentation, you should be at a healthy, stable body weight, be a nonsmoker and have realistic expectations for the outcome of your surgery.
The Surgical Process of Buttock Augmentation
If you elect to undergo a Brazilian butt lift, fat will be harvested from other areas of your body and then carefully injected into your buttocks. When beginning, your cosmetic surgeon will use liposuction techniques to remove excess fat from a harvest site on your body—often the abdomen, thighs or flanks. This fat will then be purified and injected in a fan-like pattern under the skin of your buttocks. Your cosmetic surgeon may also massage the area to ensure proper contour.
In a buttock implant surgery, which is more involved and has a longer recovery time than a Brazilian butt lift surgery, a silicone gel implant is inserted beneath the gluteus maxiumus muscle through incisions made by your cosmetic surgeon. This placement allows for a fuller projection than some Brazilian butt lift procedures might. After buttock augmentation with an implant, it may take several months before you feel completely comfortable with the implant.
Aftercare for Buttock Augmentation
After your buttock enhancement surgery, you will need to avoid exercise and increased activity for about three weeks, possibly longer with a butt implant. You will wear a compression garment, which aids in healing and ensures proper contour. If you experience swelling and pain, these are common and may be managed with medication.
Dr. Haiavy is proud to offer a variety of buttock enhancement surgeries in his Rancho Cucamonga cosmetic surgery practice. We encourage you to contact us at (909) 987-0899 to schedule a consultation and learn more about buttock augmentation, as well as other body contouring options we provide in the Inland Empire of California.
Liposuction is a surgical procedure in which the removal of fat deposits reshapes a specific part of the body, such as the face, neck, arms, abdomen, hips, or thighs. It helps sculpt your body by removing that unwanted fat that so many individuals struggle loosing. Stubborn pockets of fat deposits can be localized on your body, making it very difficult or non-responsive to most diet and exercise regimes. At Inland Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Haiavy offers options in leading liposuction techniques, including the following:
Suction Assisted Lipectomy (SAL) — a surgical procedure in which the removal of fat deposits reshapes a specific part of the body, such as the face, neck, arms, abdomen, back, hips, or thighs. Fat cells are removed, and any future weight gain will be distributed in a more proportioned manner.
VASER® Lipo is a revolutionary procedure offering exceptionally smooth and shapely results with low to minimal patient discomfort. Lipo-Selection by VASER allows us to work with such precision that we can shape delicate areas like the inner thighs, arms, chin and neck while leaving important tissues such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue relatively undamaged.
VASER® Lipo is a patented technology and advanced surgical technique to remove fatty tissue from your thighs, hips, abdomen, love handles, knees, back, arms, neck and chin.
Anyone who desires a slimmer physique, has adequate skin elasticity and is in generally good health is a good candidate for liposuction. Liposuction is a great solution for those who are looking for a proportionate body contour.
Neck and cheeks
Liposuction in CA is a relatively straight-forward and simple procedure. Small incisions are made around the area to be treated, and using a specialized tool, the fat is broken up and suctioned out. The incisions are sutured closed and dressed with surgical bandages.
Recovery times are not extraneous. You can expect to be moving immediately after your surgery, missing only about 3-5 days of work. Discomfort is normal and managed with medication. Normal activities can be resumed in about 10 days and you will be able to see the full benefits of your liposuction over the course of the next three weeks. Dr. Haiavy will also provide you with post-operative care instructions to help in a quicker recovery time.
Although abdominoplasty remains a popular option for treatment of excess abdominal skin and fat with muscle laxity, liposuction with dermolipectomy (skin excision) can achieve similar results with less recovery and a shorter scar.
With this "mini tummy tuck" procedure, excess fat is removed from the abdomen, hip and waist regions with tumescent liposuction and excess skin is removed from the lower portion of the abdomen. The belly button remains in place and does not need to be repositioned. The muscles are not usually tightened with this procedure, although it could be done if necessary.
Schedule your complimentary consultation for surgery to determine which options are in your best interest, including the full tummy tuck, mini-tuck or liposuction with dermolipectomy. These procedures can be performed at our fully accredited surgery centers in Rancho Cucamonga and Beverly Hills or at affiliated hospitals.

Becoming a new mother is a beautiful occasion. One of the most common requests for surgery in our office is from young mothers who want to restore their bodies to its pre-pregnancy state. But when most women want to go back to their pre-pregnancy figure, it becomes a difficult challenge.
As all women know, after pregnancy and sometimes breastfeeding, the breasts tend to atrophy and deflate (go down in size) as well as relax or sag. To correct these problems, we often perform breast augmentation and/or a breast lift. The augmentation involves placement of an implant (saline or silicone) and the lift is a skin tailoring procedure to remove the excess skin at the lower portion of the breast and raise the nipple/areolar complex to its original position. Some new mothers opt to have these two procedures done simultaneously.
The second most common procedure we perform for new mothers is abdominal contouring. We often see young women complaining of a bulge in their stomach that they can’t get rid of despite weight loss and exercise. There are many possible options and treatments for the abdomen depending on the individual anatomy and needs.
These procedures are some of the options included in a mommy makeover at our Inland Empire surgery center:
We often times combine the breast augmentation and abdomen procedures at the same time as a package for new mothers. We specialize in performing the breast augmentation through the same incision around the belly button for the tummy tuck package, therefore leaving no scars on the breast. We also offer a pain pump to the patients post-operatively which reduces the pain from both procedures during recovery.
We want to reassure you that our surgeons, anesthesiologists, surgery counselors, registered nurses and the entire staff at Inland Cosmetic Surgery, will help you from the very first step and follow-up with you after recovery so that you may have a safe, pleasant and comfortable surgical experience here.

Tickle Lipo is a minimally invasive procedure that removes fat and sculpts areas of your body. The technique is the latest fat removal and body sculpting procedure to be approved by the FDA.
The name comes from the tickling sensation that patients say they experience during surgery. Developed in Europe and internationally known as Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture (NIL), tickle lipo can be performed in just 1-2 hours.
Tickle Lipo can:
Be conducted in an exam room environment or an operating room.
Be performed under local anesthesia or IV sedation, while you're awake
Remove fat, while leaving surrounding tissue undisturbed, resulting in a smoother contour and more rapid recovery.
The Tickle Lipo procedure allows for high volume de-bulking in all body areas.
The Tickle Lipo Difference
Tickle Lipo differs from traditional liposuction in many ways. With tickle lipo, no general anesthesia is necessary. A local anesthesia is delivered via the cannula that is used to remove fat cells. Patients experience little or no discomfort. In fact, just a tickling sensation is usually reported. In addition to faster recovery times, the results of tickle lipo are immediately visible.
How it Works
Prior to the procedure, you and Dr. Haiavy will discuss the areas to be treated, as well as your suitability for the procedure.
Numbing tumescent fluid is infused through tiny incisions using a tickle lipo cannula. Once numb, Dr. Haiavy will use a tickle lipo vibrating suction cannula to remove the targeted fat.
This innovative technology does not generate heat and has a safety feature that shuts off the system if non-fatty tissue is encountered. This ensures surrounding tissue remains undamaged and healthy, resulting in less bruising and an easier recovery.
The vibration and movement of the cannula acts as a pain blocker. The movement of the cannula allows it to glide through fatty tissue while delivering anesthetic. The cannula is also able to maneuver through fibrous tissue or tougher areas for greater control over body sculpting, resulting in smoother lines, less bruising, and shorter recovery times.
The advantages of Tickle Lipo are numerous. The procedure allows for fat removal in areas that do not always respond adequately to diet and exercise. Tickle lipo can provide lift by removing sagging fat that occurs with age. The procedure is easy, convenient, and affordable. It provides a safe reduction of fat cells with minimal discomfort.
Tickle Lipo FAQ
Why is it called Tickle Lipo? Does it really tickle?
Although the procedure's clinical name is Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture, patients have reported a tickling sensation as they undergo liposuction.
How is Tickle Lipo different from regular liposuction?
Unlike traditional liposuction, Tickle Lipo can be performed with a local anesthetic, which is delivered with the same cannula that Dr. Haiavy uses to remove fat. With its unique circular and vibrating motion, the cannula helps provide superior fat removal and body sculpting, with easier and faster recovery times.
Will fat come back in areas where Tickle Lipo has been performed?
Fat cells are removed during Tickle Lipo. For best results, you should maintain a healthy lifestyle after liposuction.
How will I feel once the numbing solution wears off after I have Tickle Lipo?
Patients report easy recoveries following Tickle Lipo. Results are visible immediately and you don't have to wait for the effects of anesthesia to wear off since general anesthesia isn't used.
How soon can I return to my normal routine after Tickle Lipo?
After Tickle Lipo, you should be able to return to your normal routine within a couple of days. Follow Dr. Haiavy's post-operative instructions closely during your recovery.

Inland Empire cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jacob Haiavy can help you achieve your appearance goals by reshaping and recontouring your abdominal area by various surgical techniques, such as abdominoplasty or liposuction with dermolipectomy (removal of excess skin).
A Tummy Tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a procedure for patients that have loose skin, stretch marks and loose abdominal muscles due to pregnancy, loss of weight or aging. With a full abdominoplasty, excess abdominal skin is removed from the lower portion of the abdomen below the belly button, the abdominal muscles are tightened and the belly button is repositioned in the new tightened skin.
Sometimes no amount of exercise or calorie counting can create a flat tummy. Tummy tuck surgery actually tightens abdominal muscles and removes excess fat and skin from the stomach area to create a tighter, slimmer, smoother belly. If, like many other Inland Empire patients, you are interested in an overall body rejuvenation, tummy tuck can be combined with other procedures such as liposuction or breast implants for a sexier look.
Some patients might get a better result from a combination of abdominoplasty and mild liposuction, although it is inadvisable to perform aggressive liposuction at the time of an abdominoplasty.
Patients choose abdominoplasty cosmetic surgery for a number of reasons, including:
Excess abdominal skin following weight loss
Desire for a thinner profile
Desire to look younger and fitter
Desire to fit into clothes better
Weight gain (beer belly or spare tire) from a sedentary lifestyle
Abdominal fat that is resistant to diet and exercise
Stretched stomach muscles from pregnancy
Extended Tummy Tuck in CA
For patients that have lost a lot of weight, by diet and exercise or from Weight Loss Surgery, the excess skin in the lower abdomen can extend beyond the hip bones. In addition, laxity of the skin in the thighs, pubic area and other parts of the lower body may exist. With the extended tummy tuck procedure, these issues are addressed. The incision is a bit longer than the standard tummy tuck incision. This leads to an improvement, not only in the abdomen, but also in the lateral thighs and pubic region.
Inland Empire cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jacob Haiavy will discuss your concerns with you and explain the details of tummy tuck cosmetic surgery. There are a number of options to consider, including whether or not another body procedure, such as liposuction or breast enlargement, should be performed at the same time. He will work with you to determine a surgical plan that best suits your needs to create the results that you hope for.

Suction Assisted Lipectomy (SAL) or liposuction is a surgical technique in which the removal of fat cells reshapes a specific part of the body, such as the face, neck, arms, abdomen, hips, or thighs. Ultrasonic liposuction is a surgical technique that reduces fat deposits and reshapes a specific part of the body, such as the face, neck, arms, abdomen, hips, or thighs.
LipoSelection® by VASER® uses the latest patented technology and advanced surgical techniques to remove fatty tissue from your thighs, hips, abdomen, love handles, knees, back, arms, neck and chin.
LipoSelection® by VASER® is a superior alternative to traditional liposuction. This revolutionary procedure offers smooth results, with low to minimal patient discomfort. LipoSelection by VASER selectively breaks up and removes fat cells from the abdomen, arms, back, hips, knees, love handles, neck and chin, saddlebags, thighs, or any place you have developed a little "extra cushioning".
LipoSelection by VASER leaves important tissues such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue relatively undamaged to yield exceptional smooth, shapely results. Only LipoSelection by VASER provides you an experience that is UltraSelective, UltraSmooth, UltraSound!
The LipoSelection® only by VASER® Difference
The LipoSelection by VASER procedure uses innovative ultrasound technology for fatty tissue emulsion and aspiration. The VASER System's ultrasound energy breaks up fatty tissue while minimizing trauma to surrounding nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. LipoSelection allows physicians to work with such precision that they can shape delicate areas like the inner thighs, arms, chin and neck.
If you are among the potential millions of individuals seeking a fast, low-pain* path to a slimmer, more youthful body, LipoSelection could be the solution for you.
How It Works
During the LipoSelection procedure, your physician identifies the target areas that you would like to treat.
The physician makes a tiny incision in the targeted area. A saline solution mixed with lidocaine and epinephrine is infused to help shrink blood vessels and numb the area to be treated.
The physician then inserts a thin probe that emits ultrasonic waves to break up fat deposits.
Once the fatty tissue is emulsified, it can be removed through the small incision with controlled suction and massage. Any residual fatty tissue not removed from the body is either absorbed or smoothly reshaped to the contour of your frame.
This cross section on the left illustrates fat cells and other tissues before LipoSelection. On the right, magnified representation illustrates how, following LipoSelection only by VASER, the fatty tissue has been removed, leaving nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue relatively intact.
People come in all different shapes and sizes. Every body type has predisposed areas of fat storage and, even with a rigorous diet and exercise; you can't always remove the unwanted bulges. With expanding technology and medical advances, there is now an exciting method to shape your body and reduce stubborn fat deposits on most parts of your body.
VASER 4D Body Contouring for Enhanced Ab Sculpting
Many patients seek liposuction, hoping the procedure will help them reveal toned, sculpted abs that they have worked hard to achieve in the gym. Traditional liposuction isn't precise enough to accentuate muscle tone, but VASER LipoSelection allows us the necessary precision and control, and we can use VASER to sculpt the abs in a procedure called 4D body contouring.
4D body contouring combines advanced technologies to reduce unwanted fat throughout the torso and reveal the muscle tone beneath. First, we use VASER LipoSelection to break down fat deposits and remove them using specialized cannulae (fat removal instruments) that can effectively remove fat around the ab muscles. This step can be followed with fat injections to the breasts, buttocks, or other areas to achieve a "chiseled" look by accentuating the body's contours, as well as enhance your overall proportions.
LipoSelection by VASER is UltraSelective for Faster Recovery & Improved Results
Until now, traditional surgical fat removal procedures have been more about mechanical removal and suction of fatty tissue (including surrounding nerves, blood vessels and other connective tissue). LipoSelection is different because it breaks up unwanted fat leaving surrounding tissue relatively intact.
Using patented VASER technology, the LipoSelection procedure uses ultrasonic energy to break down fat cells, which are then removed through a small, specially-designed cannula. With LipoSelection by VASER, fatty tissue is removed, leaving behind the web of important tissue critical to smooth, shapely results.
Since blood vessels are minimally disrupted, LipoSelection by VASER patients report low to minimal bruising.
Since nerves are left relatively undisturbed, LipoSelection by VASER patients report low to minimal pain.
LipoSelection by VASER is so precise and efficient that it can be applied to highly delicate areas such as the inner thighs, arms, neck and chin, yet it also works efficiently in even the most fibrous areas such as the back and chest.
While traditional surgical fat removal technologies are effective at removing fat, the lack of tissue selectivity means that a significant amount of important surrounding tissue is being removed in addition to the fat, which can often create unshapely lumps and dimples. LipoSelection by VASER works so consistently and precisely that you can get the results you and your physician expect.
High frequency sound waves created by the probe vibrating at 36,000 times per second can break apart less resistant fat cells on contact, while leaving surrounding tissue relatively intact.
LipoSelection by VASER's proprietary technology first breaks up and emulsifies and then removes fat cells, which is why it provides such smooth, predictable results.
Medical advances in plastic surgery are tremendous and if you're thinking about a fat removal procedure, you owe it to yourself to look at new and progressive techniques.
