Hi-def VASER Liposuction
Hi-Definition liposculpture is a 360 degree "4D" liposuction procedure, using various devices such as VASER, as well as a comprehensive postoperative care regimen that results in a dramatic transformation.
Hi-Definition Liposculpture will give patients a more athletic appearance by sculpting a more defined abdomen, tighter waist, toned arms, and in men an athletic chest.
VASER hi-def liposuction can be used in conjunction with abdominoplasty to give a more defined and contoured abdomen. The artistic approach requires a thorough knowledge of anatomy in order to create anatomical definition.
In addition to training at the world-class institution of UCLA, I also traveled to South America to receive training in hi-def liposculpture by working alongside Dr. Alfredo Hoyos, the inventor, and pioneer of hi-def liposculpture. During this time in Colombia, I refined my technique to bring world-class total body sculpting techniques back to Tucson, AZ.
