Benefits of 4D Vaser Liposuction

Vaser stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance and is considered the latest generation of ultrasound assisted liposuction for enhanced results and recovery. Nowadays people have less time to have a regimented exercise regime and strict diet due to excessive work pressures and travel schedules so they struggle to remove fat from stubborn areas. The preferred option for them is to undergo a form of liposuction and thus 4D Vaser lipo has become a popular choice in conjunction with a healthy lifestyle.

  1. A precise and targeted procedure suitable for large or small areas (including delicate areas e.g. chin and inner thighs)
  2. Minimally invasive less likely to damage surronding structures
  3. Reduced downtime with quicker recovery
  4. Immediate results with continued improvement up to 6 months after the procedure
  5. Can be performed under local anaesthetic, rather than general, so may not require an overnight stay in hospital

4D Vaser Liposuction Procedure

Diluted local anaesthesia is placed in the treatment areas. Vaser probes are then inserted into the fatty tissue and used to gently liquify the fat cells. The vibration from the probe weakens the bonds between the fat cells leading to an emulsified solution. Once the emulsification is in process, a small cannula is used to remove the liquid and the fat cells.

4D Vaser Liposuction Aftercare

We like to see you in the clinic within 1-3 days to check on you and give you advice.

We advocate early mobilisation and so that means walking and cardiovascular activity as soon as you can. The more you do within reason gets you back into your normal routines quicker. You will need to wear a compression garments for 1- 3 weeks after 4D Vaser lipo procedure and it actually helps to keep you comfortable so that you can be more mobile.

Normally we recommend you wear the supplied primary compression garment for 24 hours/day during the first 3 weeks, and then downgrade to shapewear/ underarmour/ spanx/ sports vest for at least 8hrs a day for a further 3 weeks.

4D Vaser Liposuction uses ultrasonic technology that is a lipo selective treatment. The transmitted ultrasound targets unwanted fat whilst preserving nerves and blood vessels. The liquidised fat is then suctioned away, which is the physical removal of fat from treatment areas. The Power X component is the mechanised assistance of the actual liposuction component. Using Power X means the doctor can remove fat easily and has more control of the liposuction tubes during suction. 4D Vaser Lipo, allows for the Hi def technique to go the next level and create shadows and curves deliberately to give enhance muscular definition of the abdomen, chest and arms. We define the abdominal 6 packs, sculpt the pectoralis, and delineate the biceps, triceps and deltoids.

This gives the appearance of a more uniform and complete approach to the overall look. 4D Vaser lipo may combine fat grafting and body sculpting 4D Vaser liposuction techniques. We usually perform this under local anaesthetic with or without conscious sedation.

The treatment is ideal for both men and women and sensitive areas such as the chin, neck, arms and inner thighs. There is a large increase in men who want to undergo breast reduction surgery or Gynecomastia or those women who want to augment the size of their buttocks.

4D Vaser Liposuction is a safe alternative to the traditional Liposuction technique and is ideal for removing stubborn fatty areas that struggle to go with exercise and strict diets.

Sites of fat collection vary between male and females. Females suffer with fat in the upper thighs, saddle bags, waist/hips, and abdomen; men in contrast deposit body fat within the upper body region and upper abdomen.

4D Vaser Liposuction is an extremely effective procedure for fatty male breasts.

Diluted local anaesthesia is placed in the treatment areas. Vaser probes are then inserted into the fatty tissue and used to gently liquify the fat cells. The vibration from the probe weakens the bonds between the fat cells leading to and emulsified solution. Once the emulsification is in process, a small cannula is used to remove the liquid and the fat cells.

Results of varying types of liposuction methods depend on the doctor behind the machine, his or her experience, artistry and assessment. In a vast majority of cases similar results can be achieved with any kind of liposuction machine in the hands of an experienced doctor. In cases of large volume liposuction, for high definition liposuction and for difficult areas 4D Vaser liposuction may offer more volume reduction, smoothness of the results and easier body sculpting.

No, 4D Vaser liposuction uses ultrasound assistance, a form of sound energy and rotary mechanical assistance of the liposuction. LASER liposuction often referred to as smartlipo is light energy based.

The first and second generation UAL cannulas were thick and were designed to deliver high energy thus promoting an increase in complications e.g. skin burns, seromas etc.

Vaser is a form of ultrasound assistance although it is newer in technology or otherwise known as 3rd generation Ultrasound technology. The cannula is narrow and delivers less energy thus being safer.

We usually advice that the procedure will take anywhere between 90 minutes to 3hours. After the procedure you would need to stay with us for monitoring until we feel you are safe to go home, usually around 30 minutes. We advise that you do not operate heavy machinery or drive a car for at least 24-48 hours after the procedure.

We usually perform standard 4D Vaser lipo for small areas under local anaesthesia. Larger or multiple areas especially with 4D Vaser, Hi-Definition and even Mid definition Vaser lipo we will most often perform this under conscious sedation.

We usually advice that patients take a few days off work and then return back to light duties. Those who have any of the body sculpting techniques may require up to 5 days.

Under local anaesthesia the most uncomfortable part is the infusion of the LA. Your doctor will inject entry area, and then inject the entry points with an anaesthetic and then using a small tube further anaesthesia is infused into the fatty layers to be treated. It may sting for a short while but then when the anaesthesia takes effect most patients describe the following sensation as a ‘dullness’ or ‘heaviness’. During the procedure you may feel the occasional discomfort or a tugging.

In general you need to be healthy, undergo regular exercise, have healthy eating habits and you should not exceed more than 25% of your ideal weight. You should not be taking any anticoagulants (blood thinning agents), Vitamin E supplements or immunosuppressed. You should not be taking steroids or anti-inflammatory medications for more than a few days. During the consultation a full medical history will be taken and your doctor will discuss your option and confirm your suitability for the procedure.

Any age can be treated and people aged 18 – 80 have benefited from 4D Vaser Lipo. We do require that you are reasonably healthy, age is really no restriction. Good results depend more on your level of physical activity, health, nutrition and skin tone than age.

You may see some visible change the next day after the procedure but then you will begin to swell as the inflammation takes over. We usually advice that the average patient will begin to see pleasing results 6-8 weeks later, some patients take a little longer and some a little less time. After 6 weeks the majority of patients will continue to notice significant changes for up to 12 weeks from the procedure. Small or minor changes may occur up to 12 months from the procedure. Those undergoing a repeated liposuction are like to take longer to settle down due increased trauma and fibrosis.

You will need to wear the compression garments for 3 weeks after 4D VASER Liposuction procedure.

Normally we recommend you wear the supplied primary compression garment for 24 hours/day during the first 3 weeks, and then downgrade to shapewear/ underarmour/ spanx/ sports vest for at least 8hrs a day for a further 3 weeks.

Yes. Your body will make any new fat cells to replace the ones removed during the procedure. However, you still need to have a healthy diet and maintain regular exercise as excess calories may result in the swelling of other remaining fat cells.

No. We require our clients to consider all the alternatives and risks before proceeding. A second consultation is always advised as you may think of other questions you may want to ask the doctor. When both you and your doctor are happy to proceed following your consultation/s and 2 weeks has passed, your 4D VASER Liposuction procedure can be booked in for the next available slot.

You are most likely to be left with a very small scar about 4-5mm in length for each incision point. For most people, this scar completely fades or becomes fairly invisible with time, although this depends on each individual client’s reaction to scarring.

I can’t recommend EA clinic enough. I have had several procedures there now (vaser liposuction, mole removal and peels) and between Gill and Dr Anthony I have been so well looked after. They are consistently professional, passionate and clear in the options they provide you. Whether it is consultation, procedure or aftercare Dr Anthony always has so much time to make you feel at ease and fully informed. Both Gill and Dr Anthony are also friendly which is so lovely and welcoming as a patient. Overall I feel so much happier and confident since seeing the team at EA Clinic.
