After years of researching the human body, Dr. Millard is proud to announce the development of the newest advancement in liposcuplture technique: 4D VASER Hi Def. Building on the principles of 3-dimensional body sculpting, 4D VASER Hi Def incorporates several new and significant artistic, anatomical and surgical innovations.
For years surgeons have relied on a general approximation in shaping to make decisions in the liposculpting process. What they didn’t take into account was the way in which the fatty tissue they were sculpting would interact with the natural movement of the underlying muscle structure. 4D VASER Hi Def is an exacting procedure that reflects the way in which the body’s muscular movement is related to the connective and adipose tissue, ultimately reflecting the topographic appearance of the body’s surface.
This new technique takes into account a much more sophisticated approach to fatty and connective tissue anatomy and its relationship with the underlying musculature. It has long been theorized that fatty tissue was one continuous structure. But recent studies conducted by a team of experts (including Dr. Millard) have found that fatty tissue is actually compartmentalized throughout the body. It was through the study of these relationships that Dr. Millard came to realize that dynamic anatomy (movement) also played a vital role in the visual topography of the human form. It is focusing on the in-depth understanding of the relationship between the adipose and connective tissue with the underlying musculature that sets 4D VASER Hi Def apart from the competition.
4D VASER Hi Def has truly advanced liposculpting technique using combination of liposculpting and Autologous Fat Grafting (AFT) under ultrasound guidance in both the muscle and superficial fat compartments, taking into account the relationship of fat, connective tissue and muscular movement, youthful fullness and shape over every portion of the muscle “form.”
The real core of 4D VASER Hi Def is the sculpting surgeon’s ability to recognize the appearance of the human body. This is why Dr. Millard incorporates the use of unique lighting and muscular contraction protocol to better understand the unique shape each muscle takes during contraction and relaxation. During this process, each of the body’s curves is mapped for its length, tilt and curvature using the tonal gradations created by the special lighting used. This helps the sculpting surgeon learn how to best accentuate the body’s natural movements.
4D VASER Hi Def also introduces Dr. Millard’s new method known as the “Compression Coupling Technique,” which accomplishes the following:
