Vaser hi def lipo 4d
I appreciate your question.
Vaser assisted liposuction utilizes ultrasound to emulsify or melt felt prior to removal. It is also used to etch or define the muscles and normal anatomy to enhance the results. I use a specialized technique to remove the deeper fat areas and sculpt the superficial fat, so that one can achieve the goal of having not only a flatter stomach but also a more defined and curvaceous body if wanted. I can use this technique on the arms as well.
I also use the fat removed to graft into the pecs for men or breasts for women as well as into the arms and other areas to further enhance muscle definition.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam. Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic plastic surgery and high definition body contouring.
Best of luck!

What makes a patient a good candidate for abdominal etching?
When we do abdominal etching, we typically use 3 to 4 different types of liposuction to create the correct thickness of abdominal fat and then to etch around each bony landmark, muscle line, and tendon transcription. You have great skin and are in wonderful shape. Make sure you work with an ABPS board certified plastic surgeon with the correct tools and a lot of experience and you will get a terrific long lasting result. :)
Etching and Lipo
The first photo shows a patient with very little body fat in her core. She is probably in the 4-8% body fat range. Though liposuction and abdominal etching will improve your contour, the end result will probably not look this lean and defined.
