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. 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 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.
