I Want Washboard Abs. Can Hi Def Lipo Get Me There?

You’ve been exercising and dieting and yet you still haven’t been able to attain those washboard abs or slimming results you desire...or, maybe you have too much to do and don’t have the time needed to put in the extra hours at the gym. VASER Hi-Def Lipo, or “high-definition liposuction” is a specialized procedure that makes the abdominal area more defined by using ultrasonic waves to break down fat cells without interrupting nearby tissue. The end result is a more sculpted appearance. This procedure is simple and safe and can help Miami, FL men and women cross the finish line and finally be able to show off the 6-pack they have always wanted.

Like any liposuction procedure, surgeon aptitude is critical. Hi-def liposuction, in particular, takes a unique approach as the surgeon needs to have an understanding of the muscle anatomy as well as a keen eye in seeing how the natural shadows and curves accentuate the skin to give it a defined form. So if you are looking to have high-definition liposuction in Miami, FL to get ready to hit the beach and show off your toned abs, read on!

Why Should I Get It?

Sometimes, even the best diet and exercise plans simply don’t give you the results that you want. In the abdominal region where extra fat tends to reside, getting that sculpted look can be especially difficult. Hi-def liposuction is a quick way to help you achieve your goals. It decreases fat cells and doesn’t cause damage to other areas or nearby body tissue. This helps with a quick recovery time and decreases the amount of pain or discomfort you might feel. Since there are no large incisions, there is less swelling and bruising than other fat removal procedures such as traditional liposuction. That being said, the best part about hi-def liposuction is that this procedure’s focus is not just to remove excess fat, it’s engineered to help sculpt your body to give you a more toned look.

We have found that patients who are more self-conscious tend to find it hard to stick to their fitness goals. In fact, if you’re self-conscious about your body, it’s more likely that you may be inactive. On the contrary, when you’re confident about your body, you’ll want to show it off and work hard to keep the results. The confidence will also give you the authority to take control of your health, your workouts, and your life. You won’t have to worry about your body, just the maintenance to keep it looking great.

What Happens During The Procedure?

High-definition liposuction is a procedure that is performed in our Miami, FL plastic surgery center. It can be used on any part of the body where sculpting is desired. It takes about an hour and is performed using some form of anesthesia. To start, very small incisions are made around your abdominal area and a small three-millimeter probe will be inserted that will emit ultrasonic waves that will help break up the fat cells. The area will then be sculpted as the melted fat is removed and the remaining tissue is delicately positioned. You’ll be bandaged up and sent to our recovery room.

This procedure isn’t limited to your abs. You can get it done on the arms, back, butt, chest, flanks, thighs, and waist. If you are targeting your abs first, you can consider getting another body part sculpted at the same time or during a different appointment.
