The term “VASER” rings a bell for many weight loss enthusiasts and plastic surgeons around the world. The company is best known for their advanced liposuction procedure known as VASER Liposelection®, which uses ultrasound technology to dissolve stubborn fat deposits. Liposelection is an ideal choice for men and women looking to lose the extra padding that tends to build up on the stomach, hips, arms, and even neck. And it doesn’t hurt that the procedure leaves sensitive nerves and tissue undisturbed, requiring just a few days of downtime. Following on the tails of Liposelection’s success, VASER has developed a procedure that capitalizes on muscle definition and cutting fat: 4D Sculpt.
"The procedure is perfect for those who are moderately fit, as the fat removal follows the lines of muscle all around the contour, thereby giving a superior shape and final result,” says California plastic surgeon Dr. Vivek Bansal. VASER 4D Sculpt can enhance the appearance of abdominal muscles, biceps, pectorals, back muscles, and more.
VASER procedures differ from traditional liposuction, which relies only on vacuum power to remove fat. VASER Liposelection and 4D Sculpt incorporate the power of ultrasound, which helps to further break down and emulsify fat deposits so that they may be funneled through the suction tube. Sensitive bodily areas benefits from VASER because it requires less manual prodding to access the fat, leaving minimal bruising and swelling behind.
The 4D Sculpt system uses the same ultrasound technology its clients have learned to love in Liposelection. The difference is that 4D Sculpt focuses on removing fat that covers muscle groups. Many active people have impressive muscles and shape—that are hidden under a layer of hard-to-melt fat. The 4D Sculpt surgery hones in on these areas, cutting out fat and emphasizing a toned physique. VASER 4D Sculpt can also be used for fat injection purposes, like the Brazilian Butt Lift. A plastic surgeon removes and liquefies fat from trouble areas, then re-injects it into the buttocks for a more rounded look. Fat injections can also be used in the breasts for a no-implant breast augmentation.
It’s important to note that 4D Sculpt is a surgical procedure requiring specific training. As such, potential patients should look for a board-certified plastic surgeon with experience in alternative liposuction methods.
Most people who’ve gone under the knife for 4D Sculpt can go back to work within 3-4 days. Hold off on strenuous physical activity for at least a couple of weeks, or as long as your plastic surgeon advises.
The cost of 4D Sculpt will vary based on your geographical location, plastic surgeon’s individual rates, as well as the size of the area treated. The average price of 4D Sculpt is between $4,000 and $7,000. Schedule a consultation with a doctor in order to get exact pricing that includes medical garments, anesthesia, and any other associated fees. Risks of 4D Sculpt are similar to that of traditional liposuction: rippling, numbness, infection, and fluid accumulation. Choosing a reputable plastic surgeon will decrease your chances of these risks. Eating well and following your doctor’s recommendations helps, too. Side effects like bruising, swelling, scarring, and post-operative pain are minor and should subside within a week.
Before making the commitment to 4D Sculpt, it’s advised to meet with a doctor beforehand to discuss your aesthetic desires, concerns, and technicalities like pricing.
