Everything You Need to Know About Hi-Def Lipo

Liposuction, a cosmetic surgery to remove unwanted fat, has been around for years. It still remains one of the most requested procedures at our Miami, FL cosmetic surgery practice. While liposuction can help attain a slimmer figure, it can’t necessarily create the look of definition. So when you workout, maximize your abdominals each time, and eat a clean diet, but still cannot see the definition you desire, what do you do? Is there a faster way to get a more toned body? The answer is hi-definition liposuction with VASER hi-def lipo.

Hi-Definition Lipo Explained

During traditional liposuction, fat is removed using a cannula device. The primary goal patients seek to reach through traditional liposuction is to return a specific body part to a slimmer, more “normal” shape. VASER hi-def lipo is different. It uses a wand that emits ultrasonic energy to melt the fat and heat the underside of the skin, causing it to contract. By heating this low layer of skin, the skin essentially shrink-wraps around the underlying muscle architecture. The result is not only a slimmer look, but a sculpted one. While hi-def lipo can be performed on almost any body part, it performed most often on the abdominal region to create a defined, sculpted 6-pack look. It can create dramatic results that look like you spent hours in the gym or on a special prep. For the beaches of Miami, FL, you will finally be able to feel proud of your washboard abs through this simple and effective treatment.

What Body Parts can be Enhanced?

Hi-def liposuction continues to be an effective solution for both men and women seeking a sleeker physique. There has been a high success rate in using hi-def lipo to recontour, define, and sculpt many areas of the body. In fact, one great advantage of VASER hi-def Lipo is that it can be performed on almost anywhere on the body, even the most sensitive areas such as the neck. In addition, it can be used on all of the fat layers, which includes both superficial and deep. The great thing about the VASER technology is that it liquefies the fat but it doesn’t harm other surrounding tissues, blood vessels, or nerves. Some common areas where hi-def lipo can be used includes the:

  • Abdomen/Abs
  • Arms
  • Triceps
  • Back
  • Buttocks
  • Chest
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Waist

What Happens During Hi-Def Lipo?

VASER hi-def liposuction is generally performed under anesthesia. It is a minimally invasive procedure that strives to create an abdominal six-pack. To treat the upper and lower abdomen, several small incisions are made in hidden areas throughout the abdomen. These incisions are about the size of a pencil eraser and are just big enough so that the VASER probe can be inserted. Once the incisions are made, the hi-def probe is inserted and the VASER technology pulsates and uses sound energy to gently dissolve fat without interrupting nearby tissue. Once the fat is liquefied, it is removed using a traditional cannula operated by power-assisted liposuction. At the same time, VASER also heats the undersurface of the skin, which is the hallmark of this technology as it assists in creating the definition of the abdominal wall muscles. The process of removing fat and etching the abdomen takes an experienced surgeon with a keen eye to shape the linea alba (the line that defines and separates the six-pack), and the transverse tendinous intersection (the six-pack itself). When performed correctly, the result looks like a set of well-defined washboard abs.

After the Treatment

Results for VASER hi-definition liposuction will from person to person. Patients will see the best results after several months. It is important that a healthy lifestyle be maintained for optimal results. In addition, if you gain weight after VASER, you will likely gain the weight in areas other than where the VASER treatments were performed.

Is this Procedure for me?

We all have busy lives and sometimes we don’t have time to get the sculpted body we’re all looking for. Hi-Def liposuction can give you the results that you want in a safe and effective way. While there is a short recovery time, you will be able to enjoy your new sculpted body in a matter of a few short weeks, instead of waiting months to see a six-pack or that sculpted chest form through hours at the gym.

VASER is a breakthrough in fat removal. It is an advanced body sculpting method that was developed by cosmetic surgeons for individuals who desire a more sculpted, muscular look. The treatment is intended for men and women who are, for the most part, fit and who have healthy muscle tone without an excessive amount of fat or loose skin. The average patient desires an outcome that liposuction alone cannot achieve. Patients looking into VASER maintain a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise but are typically unable to achieve the desired definition they wish for. VASER high-def lipo allows them to finally attain the definition they want.
