Body Sculpting with VASER Liposuction

Silver Bar Icon - liposculpture

VASER liposuction is a precise method of fat removal that allows for body sculpting. The end goal of the procedure is to maximize fat reduction with attention to shape and muscle definition, much like a sculptor. It is considered the Rolls Royce of liposuction.

The ultrasonic technology that VASER liposuction uses allows for fat removal from both superficial and deep layers of fat, unlike other types of liposuction, which can only address the deeper layer. What that means is that in the hands of a talented surgeon, definition of the underlying muscles can be revealed by removing fat from the superficial layer in the abdomen, chest, and even the arms and legs. VASER high-definition liposuction is an advanced body sculpting technique allowing your surgeon to remove the unwanted fat surrounding your muscles. Rather than shape fat, it creates a more natural toned, athletic appearance.

 One of the best cosmetic surgeons to perfect this technique is Dr. Cyr. His unique skills as a board-certified orthopedic surgeon and talent as a cosmetic surgeon allowed him to introduce OrthoSculpt™. This proprietary method combines his expertise in muscular anatomy and body sculpting to produce results unobtainable elsewhere.

Body sculpting with VASER liposuction is most beneficial for people who have addressed their eating habits and exercise routine without optimal results. Body sculpting with VASER liposuction works best if you have good skin elasticity. Still, in situations where there is reduced skin elasticity or looseness, Dr. Cyr may use Renuvion Skin Tightening or can remove/excise redundant skin to create the best possible surgical outcome.

The Ideal Body Sculpting Candidate

The ideal body sculpting candidate is close to their ideal weight and has a BMI under 30. However, if you are overweight or have loose skin due to aging or pregnancy, the excess skin may need to be tightened or removed for best results. A well-trained cosmetic surgeon can tell you which procedure is best for you during the initial consultation. 

Most surgeons use a form of tumescent liposuction during surgery. The tumescent method helps to limit blood loss and reduces pain and even scarring from liposuction. First, the surgeon injects a sterile solution containing numbing medicine and epinephrine to decrease bleeding. Then they make tiny porthole incisions and place a small tube, or cannula, under the skin deep into the fat. For muscle etching, the surgeon uses a small cannula to remove the superficial layer of fat between the skin and muscle. Many patients combine body sculpting with VASER liposuction with other procedures, like tummy tucks or Brazilian Butt Lifts (BBL). Combining different cosmetic surgeries can help achieve 360 results that sculpting perfection from all angles.

VASER High-Definition Body Sculpting For Superior Results

VASER high-definition body sculpting is a powerful approach to total body contouring. Since VASER lipo enables Dr. Cyr to perform body sculpting on the superficial tissues, he can define the three-dimensional surface musculature that is impossible with any other technique. The technology is physically demanding and requires an exceptionally trained surgeon to deliver the possible results in his hands. It is essential that you select a surgeon you trust. 

The Main Difference Between Body Sculpting with VASER and Other Liposuction

There’s a lot of misunderstanding between VASER liposuction with body sculpting and other forms of liposuction.

  • VASER is a two-layered technique. All other liposuction removes unwanted fatty deposits at the deep level only. With VASER, liposuction removes deep fat and the superficial layer to produce specific muscle definition. 
  • Preservation of fat. VASER lipo is gentle compared to other forms of liposuction. It preserves the integrity of the fat cells to use in other areas of the body for natural breast enhancement, facial fullness, or a BBL. Other forms of lipo damage or destroy fat cells and, if used for transplant, will be reabsorbed resulting in a loss of fullness.
  • Less bruising and pain. Because body sculpting with VASER liposuction is done with ultrasound energy, it is far gentler on surrounding connective tissues and nerves.
  • More can be removed. Of all the forms of liposuction, your surgeon can remove more fat safely with VASER liposuction than any other type of lipo.
  • Fat loss continues after surgery. Due to the liquidation effect of VASER lipo, the body continues to discard fat via the lymphatic system. This process is enhanced with a series of lymphatic drainage massages in the days following surgery.

All liposuction methods have varying levels of fat removal, but it’s the attention to how the body can be shaped that is a crucial difference with body sculpting. VASER with the ultrasonic technology liquefies the fat, allowing Dr. Cyr to mold, contour, and shape the body.

Targeting Multiple Areas of the Body

If you have many areas where you would like to remove fat and see more definition, VASER lipo might be right for you. Body sculpting works on many areas such as the thighs, hips, buttocks, abdomen, waist, upper arms, back, cheeks, chin, neck, even knees, and calves. Gynecomastia, also known as male breast tissue enlargement or man boobs, is very effectively treated with this same procedure. In addition, body sculpting can create a more masculine chest by defining the chest muscles or pecs and creating a six-pack sculpted ab area. 

Creating Slimmer Body Contours

Body sculpting drastically improves your appearance and confidence by removing the stubborn excess fat deposits you’ve been struggling to lose and creating the curves and angles you envision. If you’ve dreamed of a more feminine or masculine body, this technique offers you the greatest surgical potential for that result.

VASER High Definition Lipo Body Sculpting

VASER high-definition body sculpting uses a cannula that emits ultrasonic waves which penetrate the tissues to dislodge fat cells. This action does not destroy the surrounding membrane of fat cells like Laser or other harsher methods.

The fat is emulsified and suspended in sterile fluids, making it easier to remove from the body and preserve for transplant. 

Dealing with Excess Skin and Body Sculpting

Dr. Cyr’s orthopedics experience allows him to anticipate how your skin will respond to the decrease in fat volume beneath your skin and the natural shape of muscles to highlight them accurately. There are two common approaches to addressing loose skin associated with body sculpting. The first is to remove it surgically at the time of liposuction. A tummy tuck, body lift, and arm and thigh lifts are examples of surgical skin tightening. 

Second, there are innovative technologies to tighten loose skin at the same time as VASER liposuction. For example, Dr. Cyr may also use Renuvion, a j-plasma treatment that provokes tissue retraction by targeting the skin’s underside and effectively shrink-wrapping the skin. Like surgical lifts, Renuvion skin tightening is performed simultaneously with other procedures.

Six-Pack for Men and Four-Pack Abs for Women

Whether male or female, you could be an outstanding candidate for body sculpting to get a six-pack, four-pack abs, or even to create a less defined, but fit-appearing body. With traditional tumescent liposuction, there is always a thin layer of fat left behind. The skin looks smooth and natural, but adding definition requires VASER high-definition body sculpting to remove the subcutaneous fat covering the abdominal, chest, and extremity muscles, sculpting your body into the best possible shape.

Of course, the results depend on how your muscles look and the shape of the bony architecture beneath the muscles. Men can have that six-pack they’ve always dreamed of, and women can have sleek abs, a four-pack, or the 3 vertical lines that create a sexy highlight to the female abdomen.

Fat Transfer and Fat Grafting During Liposuction

A fat grafting procedure, or fat transfer, relocates fat from areas where you have excess, such as the abdomen, outer thighs, and flanks, to other areas of the body that you want to be enhanced. Dr. Cyr injects healthy fat into areas where more volume is needed. 

When placed in the buttock, this is known as a Brazilian Butt Lift or BBL. When the liposuctioned fat is used to increase breast volume, it is considered a modest natural breast augmentation. Proportional body contouring is enhanced by decreasing the fat volume in your mid-section and increasing the fullness in your breasts, hips, and buttocks area. 

 More and more, surgeons are using harvested fat to naturally fill in the loss of volume in the face and hands. Since it’s your fat, the body welcomes the “relocation” and, if done correctly, will last for years.

What to Expect After Surgery

It is crucial to understand that VASER lipo with body sculpting takes some time after the procedure to see the full results. It may not be fully evident for up to three-six months after the procedure. Time is needed for swelling to subside and the skin to “redrape” into your new body shape.

There may be some minor numbness or sensitivity in the treated areas, and that sensation may take several weeks to return. Rarely, there may remain areas of permanently reduced sensation. In addition, body contour irregularities can occur, including slight depressions or wrinkling of the skin. There are commonly areas of firm tissue, especially, when definition is the greatest. This typically resolves over time.  Treatments are available to help minimize and mitigate these problems if they occur.

Post-Op Activity Restrictions

Dr. Cyr’s post-operative recovery plan varies from patient to patient based on their surgery, general health, and tone. A compression garment is worn to encourage circulation and ensure the molding of remaining still-soft fat. Post-op lymphatic drainage massages may also be helpful to reduce swelling and improve body contouring.

Potential Risks

When you do your consultation with Dr. Cyr, he will outline some of the possible risks and complications common to all cosmetic surgeries, including bleeding, infection, and reactions to anesthesia. Keep in mind that these are all rare. Steps are taken before, during, and after your surgery to ensure your safety and ongoing recovery.

The Consultation Process

During the initial consultation with Dr. Cyr, you will have the opportunity to discuss your goals and concerns. Together, you and he determine the most effective set of procedures and treatments for your circumstances. Dr. Cyr will answer all your questions and make sure you feel 100% prepared to make this life-changing decision.
