Are You a Good Candidate for Vaser Hi Def Liposuction?

If you have lost a lot of weight through diet and exercise or want to get liposuction after pregnancy, your cosmetic surgeon may recommend the Vaser Hi Def liposuction procedure. Vaser Hi Def liposuction, also known as VASER-Assisted High Definition Liposculpture, and Vaser Hi Def sculpting, is a body sculpting technique that helps to tighten and strengthen the skin tissues during the fat removal process.

Set up a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon or plastic surgeon in your area to find out if you may be a good candidate for the Vaser Hi Def liposuction procedure .

Best Candidates for Vaser Hi Def Liposuction

Vaser Hi Def liposuction can be performed on multiple parts of the body, including the breasts, chest, buttocks, hips, thighs, waist and abdomen. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia, but patients who are having a significant amount of fat removed in conjunction with traditional liposuction procedures may be required to have it done under general anesthesia.

You may be a good candidate for Vaser Hi Def liposuction if you:

  • Want to lose a few inches around your waist, hips or thighs
  • Need to tighten and tone loose skin after natural weight loss
  • Want a smooth and sculpted appearance
  • Are unable to gain definition in core muscle groups after weight loss or pregnancy
  • Don’t want to lose weight, but just want a  more contoured appearance
  • Are in good health and have relatively strong skin tone
  • Are prepared to maintain a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise after the procedure

How Vaser Hi Def Liposuction Works

Unlike traditional liposuction procedures, the Vaser Hi Def liposuction procedure removes both superficial and deeper pockets of fat around major muscle groups to create a very sleek, tight and firm appearance. This innovative technique works to remove fat from even the smallest areas, and can help create more definition in areas that have become resistant to diet and exercise.

The Vaser Hi Def procedure is often used to perform “abdominal etching” where the layer of fat sitting directly above the abdominal muscles is removed and the area is enhanced by deepening the natural grooves and furrows of the abdominals. This technique helps create the coveted “six pack” in both men and women, and can produce exceptional results with great precision.

When the patient wants to lose a significant amount of body fat, the plastic or cosmetic surgeon may combine the Vaser Hi Def procedure with ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty (UAL) and other liposuction procedures. Once the bulk fat removal process is complete with the traditional liposuction procedure, the plastic or cosmetic surgeon can go in and use the Vaser Hi Def liposculpture machine to carve and sculpt the treated areas and create more definition in the abdominals, pectoral muscles, arms and other areas of the body.
