High Definition Liposuction for Women

High Definition Liposuction is an advanced approach to body sculpting that has many advantages compared to traditional liposuction. Contrary to popular belief, it is not driven by a machine or a specific technology. Power-assisted liposuction, laser liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction, or water-assisted liposuction are all different technologies that use different energy sources to facilitate fat removal. But none of these technologies on their own are HD liposuction.

On the other hand, High Definition Liposuction is an intentional approach to sculpt the body, not to simply remove a large amount of fat cells. It is based on anatomical knowledge of the underlying frame and the ideal natural shape and curves of a specific person’s body.

How Does High Definition Liposuction Work?

The beauty of the female body is its curves that flow to create different proportions for different body shapes. Cosmetic procedures like HD liposuction seek to emphasize the three-dimensional convex and concave curved lines joined at inflection points. The shape these lines form is an Ogee, a natural shape that is an ideal of body contouring procedures.

In the image to the left, white arrows the concave curve defines the waist, the convex curve defines the hips, thighs, and buttocks. The inflection point, the yellow arrow, where the curves join, is the bony prominence of the pelvic bone.

HD liposuction is the pre-planned sculpting of the soft tissue over the musculoskeletal frame to create enhanced ogee curves. This is so much more than removing pockets of excess fat. This intentional approach is customized for each woman’s frame based on the precise high-definition liposuction results desired.

How Plastic Surgeons Create the Goal Body Shape With HD Lipo

Unlike sculpting traditional materials like marble and wood, in plastic surgery, we have the ability to both add and subtract as the body is shaped. Roundness, an important feature in the breasts or the buttocks, is defined by volume and shape in three dimensions.

As the body is sculpted, it may be important to add fat grafting (fat transfer) or implants to define areas where convex curves and roundness are important. This is another point at which High-Def Liposuction differs from traditional liposuction, as traditional procedures would never add fat back to the body.

Results from HD Liposuction

The patient whose pictures are shown above, before and 1 year after high definition liposuction with VASER liposuction, which is an ultrasound-assisted liposuction procedure, has restored natural curves. She was treated both prone and supine (lying face-down, then laying face up) to shape the body circumferentially.

The High Definition Vaser liposuction sculpting gave her a flat tummy that also enhanced the underlying muscles. Notice how the central core of the abdomen now stands separate from the oblique planes on the side. You can see the central area because the lateral border of the rectus (abdominal) muscles has been defined three-dimensionally.

With High Definition Liposuction, 80% of the waist definition is sculpted from the back. You can see in the oblique view (at right), how the waist defines the entire torso, abdomen, and buttocks. Unwanted body fat was removed from the abdomen, the back, around the buttocks, and from the inner thighs.

Very small 5mm scars are hidden in the pubic area, the belly button, and in the Venus dimples of the back.

Recovery is longer with High Definition Liposuction but the results can be dramatic. This intentional body sculpting can be used for anyone to achieve superior body contouring outcomes for an ideal feminine frame.
