While in the past traditional liposuction method was the only approach to shape your body, nowadays, there are many techniques and devices on the market that are used to remove unwanted fat deposits. From surgical body contouring procedures such as tumescent liposuction through minimally-invasive approaches where laser energy is used to Vaser liposuction – these days, patients have more options than ever.
The latest body sculpting technique is called 4D Vaser liposuction or Vaser Hi-Def Liposuction, and as the name suggests, it is a form of Vaser lipo (Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance). However, they are two different procedures.
Here you can learn more about Vaser Hi-Def Liposuction at Shens Clinic, what to expect of this fat removal procedure and how Vaser Lipo is different from other liposuction procedures.
Vaser Hi-Def Liposuction is Colombia finest technique for reducing fat. Using ultrasonic energy, this form of liposuction provides better precision and also best known for its technology and ability to contour the tissue. The ultrasound technology will emulsify the fats before the suction, resulting in less bruising and better contouring.
Vaser Hi-def Lipo has a number of advantages compared to conventional liposuction, including less blood loss, better skin correction, fewer contour irregularities, quicker recovery time, and the overall shape is much better with skin contraction.

4D Vaser liposuction has its greatest advantage of allowing the absorbed fats to be re-used as fillers so that patient can achieve perfect body shape. Face and lower body parts, such as the buttocks, are the most preferred places for plastic surgery called fat transfer.
High Definition Vaser Liposuction can be performed on multiple areas together or on a single area. Then, the fatty tissue that is taken through this cosmetic procedure can be injected into other parts of the body.
Hi-Def Vaser Liposuction uses ultrasound energy to liquidize the fatty tissues. The good thing about this technique is that it will not affect anything other but only pockets of fat. The surrounding structures, including blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue, are not significantly affected. Furthermore, through Hi-Def Vaser Liposuction much more fat can be removed than with traditional liposuction, and the natural-looking outcome can be achieved.
The cannula used for liposuction with the Vaser technology is smaller. There are a few areas that the Vaser Hi-Def can effectively target, namely, six areas on the tummy, 2 areas on the arms, back of the shoulder and thighs.
The duration of the procedure depends on the number of areas, though it is a one-time day procedure. Vaser Hi-Def technology does not target major weight lost, rather, more of body contouring. Hence, for patients with BMI exceeding 28, the procedure is conducted at the hospital as per policy required by the Ministry Of Health Singapore.
Post liposuction, a special super fitting yet comfortable and breathable garment is to be worn for about 6 weeks after surgery. It will help weight and shape maintenance. Like any other surgical procedure, there will be certain bruising, swelling and discomfort within the few days of the recovery period that can be controlled with the medication provided. The clinic will arrange for a review session with the plastic surgeon to check on the progress of the procedure.
The ideal candidate for liposuction are patients who otherwise have a healthy lifestyle but, for any reason, struggle with getting rid of the fatty bumps in certain areas in the body. As with regular liposuction surgery, Hi-Def Vaser Lipo is not a skin tightening procedure and not meant to lead to significant weight loss. In general, patients who are within 30% of their ideal weight and have relatively good muscle tone tend to benefit most from this body contouring procedure.
Your Hi-Def Lipo results will last as long as you maintain a healthy weight. Significant weight gain or weight loss will influence the long-term outcomes. If you want to get the most out of the procedure, you should ensure you maintain a healthy diet and active lifestyle.
