Can Hi-Def Liposuction Really Give You a Six-Pack?

The days of simply removing fat are over—liposuction has evolved to so much more. High-definition liposuction can take body contouring to the next level through targeted fat removal and muscle-defining sculpting.

What Is Liposuction?

Traditional liposuction is a cosmetic surgery that targets stubborn pockets of fat resistant to diet and exercise. This procedure is incredibly diverse, as your board-certified plastic surgeon can treat multiple areas of the body, including: 

The treatment is relatively straightforward: while you are under general anesthesia, your plastic surgeon will make small incisions around the treatment area(s). Then, they will insert a small, thin tube called a cannula into the incisions to remove pockets of fat. Rather than simply remove the fat, a skilled surgeon gently moves the cannula back and forth to smooth and contour the treatment areas for a more slim, sculpted result. 

Who Is a Candidate for Liposuction?

Like most cosmetic procedures, liposuction will provide the best results when the patient is as close to their goal weight as it is not intended to be a weight loss solution. Candidates for traditional liposuction should be in good health, are nonsmokers, and have reasonable expectations for results. 

How Is Hi-Def Liposuction Different than Traditional Liposuction?

High-definition liposuction takes traditional liposuction techniques to another level; from treatment to recovery, hi-def liposuction provides the most advanced results for the ultimate in body contouring. 

The Hi-Def Liposuction Procedure

During a hi-def liposuction procedure, the goal is similar to that of traditional liposuction in that fat will be removed through a cannula. However, your plastic surgeon will employ a different approach to intentionally sculpt around the muscle for a more defined curvature. 

Fat is carefully removed not just for a slimming effect but also to create a three-dimensional contour that highlights the angles and curves of your muscles. For example, more fat is removed in the negative space between the muscles on the abdomen, while other areas of fat are left to create more defined abdominal muscles. 

Depending on your goals, existing muscles, and the treatment area, your surgeon can create the appearance of defined or “six-pack” abs with hi-def liposuction. 

Additionally, using a technology called VASER®, your surgeon can provide a more gentle procedure that creates even more precise sculpting capability. VASER® liposuction uses ultrasound technology to liquefy fat and skin tightening features to improve laxity. 

When combined with the hi-def liposuction technique, VASER® not only improves the detailed sculpting of muscles but minimizes bruising, downtime, and recovery.

Who Is a Candidate for Hi-Def Liposuction?

Hi-def liposuction is ideal for patients close to their ideal weight but having trouble reaching that ultra-defined musculature through diet and exercise alone. 

Even with a strict exercise regimen, some people struggle with gaining muscle–and even more struggle with showing the definition of their hard work. Hi-def liposuction is the ideal procedure for patients that relate to this issue. 

It’s important to remember that while hi-def liposuction is a fat-removing procedure, it is also designed to accentuate the contours and curves of natural muscle. Therefore, your comprehensive consultation with an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon is crucial to determining your candidacy. Your surgeon will examine the treatment area to determine if you can benefit from this dramatic procedure.
