  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.

  A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty removes that stubborn fat and extra skin

that just doesn’t want to go away.  In many women there is also a separation of the rectus or six-pack muscles that have weakened 

and stretched because of

weight changes or pregnancy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 The muscles are brought back in the center by suturing them together resulting

in a flattened and toned midsection.

The overall goal of the procedure is to give you back your body, enhancing your 

natural shape and beauty.

Liposuction is used to contour the abdomen in

many cases using VASER lipo, allowing me to produce a natural and beautiful anatomic contour.

I strive to achieve beautiful and natural results by personalizing the procedure to you, using the most up to date safety guidelines,  attention to every detail, with attentive and comprehensive postoperative care.  

Having had training with the world renowned surgeon,

Dr. Alfredo Hoyos, who pioneered the technique of VASER hi-def liposuction.

Recovery

 Activity/shower/driving restriction: rest immediately after surgery up to 10-14 days. May drive when no longer requiring narcotic pain medication. May carefully resume normal exercise 6-8 weeks after surgery. If activities cause pain or hurt, please stop.

       Time off work: 10-14 days.

     

 Outpatient surgery.

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

the extent of liposuction.

       Pain is variable depending on the extent and areas treated.  Usually, pain medication is taken up to 5-7 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.

          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.
