4D Body Contouring in Rancho Cucamonga
Our 4D High-Def VASER LipoSelection techniques can help you look slimmer and more toned (with less downtime!)
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. Jacob Haiavy, Dr. Irene Tower, and Dr. Emma Ryan are specially trained in this technique.
- Key Benefits
- Precise Body Contouring: 4D VASER LipoSelection allows for precise removal of fat and is excellent for defining and enhancing the natural contours of the body, particularly around muscle groups.
- Minimally Invasive: This technique is less invasive than traditional liposuction, resulting in smaller incisions and potentially less trauma to surrounding tissues.
- Enhanced Muscle Definition: The procedure is designed to accentuate the underlying musculature, giving a more sculpted, athletic appearance, often referred to as “high-definition” results.
- Reduced Downtime and Recovery: Being less invasive, 4D VASER LipoSelection typically has a quicker recovery time compared to traditional liposuction.
- Effective Fat Removal: The ultrasound technology effectively breaks down fat cells, making them easier to remove and leading to more effective fat reduction.
- Smooth Results: The precision of the technique helps in achieving smoother contours and reducing the risk of irregularities or lumps that can occur with traditional liposuction.
- Potential Skin Tightening Effects: The ultrasound energy can stimulate collagen production, leading to tighter, more youthful-looking skin in the treated areas.
- Targeted Fat Reduction: This method is excellent for targeting stubborn areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
- Less Pain and Bruising: Compared to traditional liposuction methods, 4D VASER LipoSelection often results in less post-operative pain and bruising.
- Versatility: It can be used on various body areas, including the abdomen, arms, chest, back, and thighs, to create a balanced and aesthetically pleasing physique.
- 4D High-Def VASER LipoSelection: A specialized liposuction technique using ultrasound technology for precise fat removal and enhanced muscle definition.
- BMI (Body Mass Index): A measure of body fat based on height and weight, used to determine candidacy for surgical cosmetic procedures.
- Body Contouring: A cosmetic procedure that reshapes areas of the body, which 4D High-Def VASER LipoSelection accomplishes by selectively removing and sculpting fat.
- Cannula: A slim tube used in liposuction, including VASER LipoSelection, to extract fat.
- Fat Emulsification: The process of liquefying fat; in VASER LipoSelection, ultrasound is used to emulsify fat for easier removal.
- High Definition: In cosmetic surgery, this refers to procedures that create a more defined and athletic appearance by accentuating muscle contours.
- Liposuction: A surgical technique to remove fat from specific body areas.
- Local Anesthesia: Anesthesia that numbs a specific area; often used in VASER LipoSelection procedures.
- Muscle Definition: The visibility and definition of muscle contours.
- Recovery Time: The period required for healing post-surgery; varies depending on the extent of the procedure.
- Sedation: Medication used to relax patients during procedures, possibly used alongside local anesthesia.
- Ultrasound Energy: High-frequency sound waves utilized in VASER technology to precisely target fat cells.
- VASER (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance): A technology in liposuction that uses ultrasound waves to break down fat while preserving surrounding tissues.
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 hollow tubes called 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 three to four weeks.
Final results are typically evident within three to six 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.
