Vaser Assisted High Definition LipoSculpture, or Vaser Hi Def, is an advanced body sculpting procedure that uses cutting edge technology to create a sculpted, athletic appearance in males and females by removing fat around muscle groups. It is performed using the Vaser Lipo System to selectively remove fat in the targeted areas. High-def liposculpture selectively removes small deposits of fat surrounding specific muscle groups in order to enhance the visibility of the body’s natural contours. This technique not only focuses on a person’s outer form, but also takes into account the shape and form of structures underneath the skin that create body contours. This procedure can be done on many areas of the body, including the abdomen, chest, back, arms, thighs, buttocks, hips, and waist.
Unlike fat removing procedures such as liposuction, Vaser Hi Def LipoSculpture is designed for people who are generally fairly fit and active with good muscle tone and skin. The typical patient maintains a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise but is unable to achieve the desired athletic appearance. High-def liposculpture should not be performed after massive weight loss or on patients with severe stretch marks in the abdominal area. It is not recommended for patients with marked muscular laxity or moderate to severe skin laxity.
