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.

       Results may take up to 1 year or more to fully                    appreciate effect depending on the extent of

       liposuction; at times appreciated immediately.

       Pain is variable depending on the extent and areas          treated.  Usually, pain medication is taken up to
       5 days.

       The most important part of healing which even                  affects the results and recovery, is the post-procedure compression garment and must be worn        24 hours a day for 6 weeks (with exception                        when showering).

       All sutures are dissolvable, so no need for removal,          except those used to hold the drain in place.

       Activity/shower/driving restriction: rest immediately          after surgery up to 7-10 days. May drive when no              longer requiring narcotic pain medication. May                  carefully resume normal exercise 4-6 weeks after             surgery. If activities cause pain or hurt, please stop.

       Time off work: variable depending on degree of                liposuction and if performed with additional                      procedures.

       Follow-up: you will be seen in office following                    surgery the following day, at 1 week, 2 weeks, 4-6            weeks, 3 months, and 6-12 months and as needed.
