Even after years of working out, many people are still left with stubborn fat, or areas they wish could be more defined. Traditional liposuction is able to remove excess fat, but until recently there has never been a solution for creating a more defined and athletic figure. Enter, high-definition liposuction. This treatment allows the surgeon to not just remove fat, but also sculpt the body to leave you with a tighter, more toned figure.

How Does High-Def Lipo Work?

High-definition liposuction uses artistic application of enewer liposuction techniques and requires specialized training and experience.  In this procedure, the surgeon carefully marks out the areas of fat removal along with the position of muscles in the body that would benefit from enhancement.  Etching of lines and depressions in the correct places gives the appearance of muscular tone and definition.  The most common area to highlight in this manner are the abdominal muscles to achieve a toned appearance or an abdominal “six pack”.  Other areas that can be enhanced in this manner are the chest, arms, legs and lower back.

Where Can High-Definition Liposuction Target?

High-definition liposuction can treat a number of different areas throughout the body. This includes more delicate areas that were typically harder, or unable to be treated with liposuction. During your consultation with Dr. Ching, you can discuss your aesthetic concerns and he can develop a treatment plan for which areas to treat. Primary treatment areas include:

  • Abdomen
  • Waistline
  • Arms
  • Flanks
  • Thighs
  • Butt
  • Upper back
  • Chin and neck

Your Consultation

While at your consultation Dr. Ching will decide if you are an ideal candidate for the procedure. Because high-definition liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure, patients should be near their ideal weight and in a healthy weight range. Patients should also not have a lot of excess skin and have good skin laxity and muscle tone. In addition, potential candidates should be in good overall health and non-smokers. For those seeking more definition, who have stubborn fat that hasn’t changed with diet and exercise, high-definition liposuction is a great option.

Your Procedure

The procedure generally takes between one and four hours depending on the areas being treated. General anesthesia is used to keep the patient comfortable during surgery. To begin the procedure the treatment area is injected with a medical solution. After this, a cannula is used to suck out the fatty tissue and some of the medical solution that was initially injected. The last step is the High Definition liposuction.
