Vaser 4D Liposculpture

Vaser 4D liposuction is an enhanced body contouring procedure that can precisely target different layers of fat to produce a visibly shaped result, performed by a Plastic Surgeon, using HIFU (high intensity focus ultrasound) to break down and emulsify the fat cells before they are extracted. A small part of this fat can be reinjected after being processed in certain areas to achieve the ideal contour. Fat is permanently removed and the result is a more athletic, defined body. Additionally the use of HIFU contributes to skin tightening.This procedure is also suitable for patients with less body fat who desire more body definition.

About

Vaser 4D liposuction is a specialised liposuction technique that uses ultrasound-assisted energy to selectively target and remove fat deposits from specific areas of the body to create a sculpted, contoured appearance.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

A tumescent solution, which is a mixture of saline (saltwater), local anaesthetic, and adrenaline, is injected into the targeted areas. This solution helps to numb the area, reduce bleeding and swelling, and makes it easier to remove the fat.

A small probe that emits ultrasound energy is inserted through small incisions in the skin into the targeted fat deposits. The ultrasound energy is used to selectively target and emulsify the fat cells while preserving other tissues, such as blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissues.

Once the fat cells are emulsified by the ultrasound energy, the liquified fat is gently suctioned out using a small cannula. The surgeon uses specialised techniques to sculpt and contour the treated areas according to the desired outcome, creating a more defined and contoured appearance.
