Fun Sculpting is a type of high-definition liposuction, and it’s our premiere service at VCMD. It’s the only kind of liposuction that will not rip, cut, tear, heat or freeze tissue. This type of liposuction uses vibration to not only decrease discomfort, but also tightens the skin by stimulating it. Many patients who are offered a tummy tuck or arm lift for instance, may not require one if they have Fun Sculpting. This procedure is minimally invasive, and we use no general anesthesia. Downtime is also minimal, so expect to be able to get back to work within a few days. Fun Sculpting requires no sutures or drains, and because it does not damage the tissue under the skin, it is suitable in areas of the body where classic liposuction is not. Areas that can be treated include the chin, arms, male chest wall, bra rolls, abdomen, flanks, inner/outer thighs, knees and calves. Dr. Gregory is the lead surgeon and head trainer for Fun Sculpting for the United States. You can also find her talking about the procedure on the national website for this technology, www.funsculpting.com

with FUN SCULPTING
VCMD offers fat transfers as an added procedure to your hi-def liposuction procedure. What’s amazing about our fat transfers is that the retention rate (which is life-long) is over 80%, as compared to fat transfers seen with classic liposuction, which is more commonly less than 50% of fat retention. Fun Sculpting fat transfers are better because there is no destruction of the tissue under the skin, and the fat cells are much more viable and remain in a sterile container prior to transfer. Fat can be transferred to the face, the breasts, and to the buttocks, also known as a BBL. This is an excellent alternative to implants, because you get to use your own body fat, rather than an implant, to enhance an area.

Who's The Doctor
The practice of Dr. Bilge Gregory, MD, located in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona. We provide high end services in a spa environment that is designed to not only help you feel great, but look even better.
You have questions!
That is OK, we get alot of them. See if we have answered it below.
Following your procedure, you will see a generalized improvement in the contour of the treated area. The vibration of the high-definition liposuction device gently removes the fat, while still preserving the connective tissue, nerves, and vascular bundles that all help support your skin to the muscle wall. Also, it helps to stimulate the production of collagen up to six months post treatment.
Immediately following your procedure, you will be dressed in a compression garment to be worn for 4 weeks, with best results seen if worn for 6 months. Since no general anesthesia is used, you will be able to walk on your own, but will be assisted to your transportation after surgery. Most patients feel tender and sore in the treated areas, as if they had worked out extensively, but this discomfort resolves within days after the procedure. Most patients feel well enough to return to work within 48 hours.
Excessive skin folds with large volumes of fat removed often tighten up considerably during the recovery period, and most patients have excellent results with liposuction alone (without tummy tuck surgery). However, irregularities in the skin present before the procedure (such as stretch marks) will not necessarily be improved with your liposuction procedure. Vital Connection MD offers skin tightening and skin lifting procedures that are non-invasive or minimally invasive. In addition, we offer packages to smooth the skin on the torso and legs. We can lessen the appearance of cellulite and stretch marks, as well as address small fatty deposits not appropriate for surgery. Finally we have natural injectables for diuretic purposes, and an exciting new service for us, vitamin C injections, which can be used to lift the buttock. Ask our staff for details.
Vibration-Assisted lipo is a type of high definition liposuction. While this is new to VCMD with our practice, the technique has been widely used in Europe since 1997.
High Definition Liposuction uses gentle vibration to increase patient comfort, decrease procedure time, increase skin tightening, and improve the smoothness of the results over other liposuction technologies. Many physicians in the US alone are still using archaic liposuction equipment, associated with higher complication rates, tissue damage, and longer recovery times. VCMD chose the newest technology for you because we recognize how important it is to stay current in the field of cosmetic procedures.
After a treatment with the High Definition Liposuction, most patients experience very little pain and describe the recovery as being comparable to the soreness felt after having done a high-impact workout. The patient is given medications by mouth prior to the procedure, and the primary numbing agent, Lidocaine, will provide the patient with significant, if not almost complete pain relief, once the tumescent fluid is infused. We can easily answer these questions in more detail during your consultation.
Once you have attended your consult we will design a custom quote for you. You can also receive an estimated quote by using our “Price Estimator feature” down below. Please do ask about current specials and promotions.
VCMD Liposuction is different because it uses High Definition Vibration Technology. This technology uses gentle vibration to increase patient comfort, decrease procedure time, increase skin tightening, and improve the smoothness of results over other liposuction technologies.
VCMD is not like any other cosmetic clinic in the west coast. We will not perform body sculpting and send you on your way, only to return once or twice for a few photos and some conversation. We offer Colombian Post-Operative Care in single sessions or packages. We recognize that liposuction is NOT a procedure, it is a journey, and we are here to help you optimize your results, and to maintain them for as long as possible.
Most patients feel tender and sore in the treated areas, as if they had worked out extensively, but this discomfort resolves within a few days to weeks after the procedure. These patients feel much better faster with VCMD post op care. Most patients are well enough to return to work within 48 hours. Surgery is a journey for ALL patients. We are here to accompany you on this journey, answer your questions, and take care of your post-operative needs. It is important to understand that you will not have final results of your sculpting for at least 6-12 months. You can expect to see most of your results by 3 months, but scar tissue takes months to reorganize. Please be patient with your body and with us as you go through this process.
No. After your High-Definition Liposuction treatment, the fat cells will never regenerate in the treated area. However, dietary habits and lack of attention to post-operative body contouring has a profound impact on your results. We will discuss ways in which we can help you maintain your liposuction results for years to come.
