5D Liposculpture in Korea at Lydian

Although most of us have heard of liposuction, what is 5D liposculpture and what makes it different from regular liposuction?


5D liposculpture is a procedure that removes the deep fat layers of your body, leaving a superficial fat layer over the patient’s original muscle shape. This results in a six-pack abdomen. 5D Liposculpture can be performed in abdomen, chest line, and side body. 


There are only several doctors worldwide who can perform a 5D liposculpture procedure. Among them, Lydian Plastic Surgery Clinic’s own Doctor An produces natural results with his unique and detailed surgical methods, adding perfection to the contours of your muscles.


It is important to note that liposuction operations require thorough care for each step of the procedure, as there may be side effects such as bleeding, inflammation, and infection.

Firstly, 5D liposculpture results in natural and complete surgical results. This is because our incision methods and advanced equipment result in invisible scarring, as well as the use of a special protector. 


Secondly, our 5D liposculpture operation minimizes bruising by suctioning fat as if carving through the texture of the muscles. This makes daily life possible the day after operation. In addition, there is no removal of stitches.


Lastly, Lydian Plastic Surgery Clinic performs using VASER Hi-Definition Liposuction methods, of which Doctor An received extensive training from Dr. Alfredo Hoyos, the inventor of high definition liposuction with VASER.

Vaser Liposuction and Vaser High-Definition Liposuction

What’s the difference between Vaser liposuction and Vaser High-Definition liposuction?


In Vaser Liposuction, the removal of deep and superficial fat cells results in a more contoured figure, while Vaser High-definition Liposuction treatment takes contouring further by targeting small fat deposits around and on top of muscle tissue.


This means we are one of the few clinics in the world who can perform 5D liposculpture and have thereby undergone extensive study and training.

How 5D Liposculpture Works

Depending on the area, fat cells all have different sizes and shapes even it’s from the same person’s abdomen. In order to have a state-of-the-art result, we need to use various different kinds of cannula tubes, so that fat can be absorbed beautifully.

Dr.An has been in the industry for over 20 years, as one of the very first generation of liposuction industry, he developed a set of 30 different cannula for different shape and size fat cells. That’s why you would be able to expect an artistic result after surgeries in Lydian.

Minimum Scars

No matter using how small cannula tube, we can’t avoid the scars. So we reallly need to minimize the incisions, and make the scar invisible for the perfect result.

  • Least Incisions: With the special set of cannula tube, Dr.An only does 2-3 incision while most of the surgeons in industry will make 5-10 incisions for the surgery.
  • Invisible Scars: Dr.An will make incisions at invisible area, such as inside the belly button, public area, tailbone, etc.
  • Minimize Scar size: For the best result and the recovery, Dr.An will use skin protectors to minmize the scar size, and protect the skin during the surgery.

Lydian Plastic Surgery Clinic’s 5D liposculpture aims for a safe operation with the aid of our experienced team and state-of-the-art equipment. Please read the following information carefully to better understand the equipment used.

Air Vibration Liposuction Device

Air Vibration Liposuction Device (Eva II): Eva II is safe enough to allow the operation to only be performed with local anesthesia. It results in a low rate of bleeding, a shorter treatment time, and fast recovery time. Eva II also helps increase skin elasticity.

vaser liposculpture

Vaser: A vaser melts upper fat close to the epidermis layer and makes natural inhalation possible. This device is vital for creating six-pack abs as a type of 3rd generation ultrasound. It induces collagen formation and increases skin elasticity.


Liposaver: This device is capable of delicate liposuction. With a repossaver, Lydian Plastic Surgery Clinic is able to create a sophisticated body shape and clear muscle lines. This device also creates a skin lifting effect that dissolves fat through high-frequency energy.
