VASER HIGH DEFINITION LIPOSUCTION IN NASHVILLE
Dr. Ramirez Gavidia | Abdominal Etching
RG 360 Hi-Definition Liposuction, sometimes known as Abdominal Etching, is a combination of strategically removed fat and fat transfer to build curves and sculpt muscles. Instead of removing fat to appear slimmer, fat is removed with the intention of having muscles appear more prominent. This modern form of medicine allows the body to be sculpted into a desirable, strong figure. The dramatic improvements made during this procedure are not obtainable by diet and exercise alone.
Dr. Ramirez Gavidia combines VASER, MicroAire, and Renuvion technologies to build and sculpt the body yielding results better than conventional liposuction. The goal of RG Abdominal Etching (360 Hi-Definition Liposuction) is to shape the body into a natural and athletic physic. The patient is contoured by strategically removing unwanted fat around the midsection to reveal abdominal muscles and eliminating love handles. To enhance results, fat removed is relocated into areas such as the pectorals, deltoids, and buttocks to build the appearance of muscular curves.

BEFORE AND AFTER ABDOMINAL ETCHING
The best way to find out if you are a candidate for surgery is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Ramirez Gavidia to assess your body type and aesthetic goals. People who follow a consistent diet and exercise routine without seeing the results they’d expect can turn to plastic surgery to fine-tune their figure. When stubborn fat cells are keeping patients from achieving their ideal figure, RG Hi-Definition Liposuction may be a suitable solution. You should be close to your ideal and stable weight and in good health. You will need to be medically cleared for surgery, and you should also be a non-smoker. Smokers are advised to stop smoking for a period of time before undergoing surgery.
Every patient is different, but usually, patients return to their normal day-to-day lifestyle in 2 weeks as you begin to see your new body taking shape. We require a minimum of 10 post-surgical massage therapy sessions which increase healing time, reduce swelling, and improve results. A garment must be worn for 24 hours a day for 4 weeks and an additional 12 hours a day for weeks 5-8. These can be disguised under normal clothing and we will adjust sizing during your massage therapy sessions.
Fat cells removed during RG Abdominal Etching (Hi-Def Liposuction) will not return to the body. The best way to maintain your RG Hi-Definition Liposuction body over time is to avoid significant weight fluctuation by committing to a healthy diet and consistent exercise routine.

The cost of abdominal etching varies depending on where the surgery is performed (in-office or the hospital) and whether it is performed in concert with other procedures. Other factors, identified during your consult, may also affect cost. Dr. Ramirez Gavidia will help you decide what is right for you and your aesthetic goals. A member of his staff will lay out the costs associated with buccal fat pad surgery and your recommended treatment plan at your consultation.
Dr. Ramirez Gaividia usually performs buccal fat pad removal as an in-office procedure with local anesthetic. Patients can return home the same day to start the recovery process. The procedure takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes to perform, unless combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures, the overall surgery time can be longer. Buccal fat pad removal is performed from inside the mouth [in the cheek area]; leaving no visible scarring. Dr. Ramirez Gavidia strategically and precisely removes the correct amount of the buccal fat pad through a small incision inside the mouth and places dissolvable sutures. The result is a sculpted, yet natural-looking facial appearance without any visible scars.
After buccal fat surgery, patients should expect some facial swelling and will leave the office wearing a facial wrap. The facial wrap is worn for 72 hours post op. The swelling will dissipate on its own within about two to three weeks. After the swelling resolves, the cheeks will start to look thinner and more contoured. Patients can expect about seven to 10 days for the tissues inside the mouth to recover following buccal fat pad removal. Patients are advised to maintain a soft diet the first day or two after surgery and are prescribed an oral rinse for after meals.
The results of buccal fat pad surgery start to become evident four weeks after removal with full results several months after swelling has subsided. Buccal fat pad removal results can vary patient to patient. Fluctuations in weight (gain or loss) after buccal fat pad removal will impact results. The natural aging process leads to skin laxity. Additionally, facial wrinkles and other skin issues can potentially affect the overall appearance after buccal fat pad removal. Dr. Ramirez Gavidia will explain realistic treatment expectations. In your consultation, he will be able to address how your long term results will be affected by normal aging.
Buccal fat pad removal is not ideal for an already thin face. This can result in a gaunt unflattering appearance; leading to a face with accelerated aging.

He is an expert facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. He will be able to analyze if this is a procedure that is right for you. If this procedure is not right for you, he can recommend alternative treatment plans to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. Dr. Ramirez Gavidia’s goal is to help you understand if you’re a candidate for buccal fat removal and to educate you about the short and long-term effects of this surgery.
