Like a sculptor, the High Definition Liposuction procedure treats the body circumferentially. The patient is turned during the procedure to define the waist and literally shape the body. It would be impossible to “sculpt” if the subject is only in one position. By removing the fatty tissue from different areas, the underlying anatomy can be defined. By understanding the anatomy three-dimensionally, the “frame,” the muscular definition can be uncovered to reveal natural curves.
It is often confusing with all the different “types” of liposuction machines (Smart-Lipo, Ultrasonic Lipo, Laser, lipo, Tickle Lipo, Power Lipo, Water-lipo) to wonder which is best. It is also confusing to understand how High Definition Liposuction with High Definition Liposuction is different from traditional liposuction. Simply, High Definition Liposuction is a completely different approach to liposuction. Traditional liposuction removes fat. Each “type” or machine uses some type of energy (heat, laser, ultrasonic, water-jet, vibration, nutational energy) to make it easier to mobilize and remove fat. Some work faster, some have more recovery.
All “types” of liposuction have as the goal: fat removal. High Definition Liposuction 360 is a sculpting approach, not a reductive procedure. Fat is layered on the body frame and muscles. The fatty tissue layer under the skin provides essential padding, but also defines curves. The High Definition liposuction approach starts with the end goal, the desired shape in mind at the beginning. The approach is to start with the imagined result in mind and remove fat as needed to define the natural curves for each woman’s body. Applying this sculpting principle to surgery, the patient is treated in different positions (on the back, on the tummy, on the side) to continuously shape the body. Fat may be added (for example to the buttocks or breasts) to enhance shape.
