What to Expect

VASER 4D Treatment

Vaser 4D is ideal for men and women. We work with each patient on a case-by-case basis meaning your results will always be individual to you.

The area where fat will be removed is initially injected with tumescent fluid that contains lidocaine to act as local anaesthetic for the area but also ephinephrine which shrinks the capillaries causing the area to become firm and swollen allowing the surgeon to precisely target fat cells that need to be removed.

Small incisions are made and vaser probes are inserted into the fatty tissue, the vibration works to weaken the bond between the fat cells which helps to break and liquify the fat cells being treated. Once this process known as emulsification is in process, a small cannula or tube will suck the fat cells out of the body.

Vaser 4D also involves creating shadows and curves to help enhance muscular definition targeting the abdominal 6 packs, pectoralis of the chest, biceps, triceps and deltoids of the arms. Fat grafting may also be combined with Vaser 4D which involves repositioning fat within the areas being treated.  

The procedure typically lasts less than 2 hours and is performed under local anaesthetic.

After Vaser 4d Treatment

Patients will be able to return home shortly after their Vaser 4D procedure. You will be provided with a postoperative instruction sheet following your procedure along with any medication that is prescribed by your surgeon or doctor to take during the following week to aid your recovery.

A compression garment will need to be worn for around 3-6 weeks following your Vaser4D procedure as advised by your surgeon.

We recommend taking anywhere from 3-7 days off work depending on the nature of your role. You may feel tenderness to the areas treated for 1-2 weeks but this can be easily managed with pain relief if required. We recommend trying to keep active to avoid any stiffness, but strenuous exercise should be avoided for at least 4-5 weeks.

We do not recommend flying or long distance travelling for up to 2 weeks. Please let your surgeon know of any trips you have planned so they are able to advise on the best suitable date for your procedure.

A wound check appointment will be made with our nursing team within 1-2 weeks post procedure. You will meet with your surgeon again after 6 weeks to assess your results.
