Best Lipo Techniques for Sculpting and Shaping the Body

Liposuction continues to be the best way to get rid of body fat for good, but many plastic surgeons also use various liposuction techniques for sculpting and shaping the body. Some of the latest innovations in liposuction can help to get rid of a few stubborn inches and also tighten the skin to create a streamlined appearance. These can be a better match for those who don’t need to lose a lot of body fat, and are more interested in a few minor cosmetic enhancements.

If you are at a healthy weight, and interested in tightening and toning loose skin or getting rid of a few stubborn inches, talk to a plastic surgeon in your area about some of the latest lipo techniques. Laser liposuction and ultrasound-assisted liposuction are among the top choices for surgeons who want to sculpt and shape the body without extensive surgery. You may be a good candidate for these procedures, and won’t have to worry about the side effects and pain associated with traditional liposuction surgery.

Vaser Lipo for Body Sculpting and Shaping

One of the most popular body sculpting and shaping procedures is the Vaser Lipo technique. Vaser Lipo is preferred over other techniques for sculpting, tightening and shaping the body, because it breaks up the fatty tissue using high frequency sound energy before extraction. Vaser Lipo also produces predictable outcomes and consistent results. When the skin begins to heal from this procedure, it does tend to retract and become tighter naturally. This creates very smooth, contoured and natural-looking appearance. Most people notice progressive results as the tissues continue to heal over a few months after their surgery.

Vaser Lipo can be particularly effective for:

  • Eliminating “love handles”
  • Getting rid of body fat on the abdomen
  • Reducing body fat around the inner and outer thighs

Vaser Hi-Def for Body Sculpting and Shaping

Vaser Hi-Def is a liposculpture technique that works by liquefying the fat using ultrasound energy before the fat is removed. It is particularly effective for creating muscle definition and tightening the skin. Many plastic surgeons prefer to use the Vaser Hi-Def procedure for abdominal etching or for creating a muscular appearance of the arms and legs. It is a popular choice for athletes who want a more toned and sculpted look, and it promises less downtime than conventional procedures. It is a good choice for people who want to spot-reduce body fat in very small areas, and for those who can’t take a lot of time off to heal.

Vaser Hi-Def is particularly effective for:

  • Sculpting and adding more definition to the abdominal area
  • Sculpting and defining the pectorals
  • Reducing extra inches around the waistline
  • Getting rid of back fat
  • Creating a more chiseled torso
