VASER Hi Def Liposculpture – FAQs

Q: What is VASER hi def liposculpture?

A: This is an advanced form of liposuction that can eliminate fat from specific areas of the body along with enhancing the visibility of well-toned muscles. The procedure is ideal for those who wish to achieve a sleek athletic look. The procedure also tightens the skin.

Q: What areas can be treated?

A: With this procedure, fat pockets from practically any body area such as the abdomen, chest, hips/love handles, waist, knees, back, thorax, calves, chin and arms can be easily removed.

Q: How is the procedure different from VASER liposuction?

A: VASER Hi Def lipo is not the same as liposuction. While VASER liposuction and traditional lipolysis aim at simply removing fat that refuses to go away despite continued diet and exercise, Hi Def Liposculpture defines athletic muscular structures in a normal and fit body. By removing the fat in certain areas, and leaving it in others, an athletic looking physique will be created.

Q: What does the procedure involve?

A: VASER-assisted high-definition liposculpture involves liposuction around the muscle groups just under the surface of the skin to result in well-defined abs, the perfect six-pack or the appearance of gym-toned pectorals. In women, the technique is usually modified to provide a slightly softer and more feminine appearance.

Our plastic surgeons have extensive experience in using VASER technology for hi-def contouring. The VASERlipo system uses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology to break up the fat cells. The liquefied fat is removed through a gentle suction process to minimize damage to the surrounding tissues. The muscle structures are then chiseled out by removing the fat around muscle groups. A recovery regimen will be prescribed post-procedure to promote optimal results.
