VASER High Definition Liposuction

Why High Definition Liposuction?

In recent decades a muscular, lean appearing body physique has become considered the ideal body shape by mainstream culture.  Having toned muscles with a lean angular look is a goal to which many aspire and few obtain.  Healthy low calorie diets combined with intense exercise can create this look for some individuals.  For others a six-pack abdomen, muscular pecs and muscular round buttocks are impossible goals no matter the extremes gone to with diet and exercise.

The most common reason a person lacks a defined muscular look is that the fat layer overlying the muscles obscures the definition of the muscles underneath.  No matter how much muscle tissue an individual has, if there is a storage area of fat above it, the resulting look will not be as angular and athletic appearing.  HiDefLipo1Thumbnail

Most forms of liposuction, although effective for removing fat and generally making an area on a person’s body smaller, do not create a muscular or defined appearance in the surgical area.  Traditional liposuction in particular does not create a muscular look as the liposuction needs to be kept to the deep fat in order to avoid lumps and bumps.

How is High Definition liposuction possible? 

In the last decade several things occurred to make it possible for a person to gain a sculpted athletic look with the aid of liposuction. First, liposuction technology has greatly improved with the use of tumescent anesthesia, smaller cannulas and technology such as the VASER. These technical improvements make it possible for a skilled surgeon to actually “etch” out or augment the natural shapes of muscles, tendons and insertions of each through selective removal of fat.

In both the male and female patient the muscles and ligaments of the abdomen are augmented and defined via a detailed etching technique.  In men the pectoralis major muscle can be augmented with artistically placed fat to appear toned and buff, and in women the buttock can be augmented with sculpturally placed fat to appear more round, youthful and muscular.
