High Definition Liposuction
At some time or the other, we all deal with certain areas of our body that accumulate fat and do not respond to diet or exercise. That is when we need Liposuction. While traditional liposuction removes areas of fat, High Definition Liposuction (also called HD Lipo) is a breakthrough technology that uses advanced liposuction to not only remove fat but to also define underlying muscles.
High Definition Liposuction specifically targets pockets of fat that lie over muscle groups, in areas of the body such as the upper arms, abdomen, chest, back, buttocks, flanks, and thighs. High Definition Liposuction is ideal for those patients, both men, and women, who want and need only small areas of fat removed for contouring and toning.
This procedure uses a device that liquefies the fat cells before removing them from the body. Your surgeon will also most probably apply tumescent fluid to the area, breaking down the fat even further and also acting as a sedative. Once the fat is completely broken down, the surgeon removes it from the body completely, using suction. HD Lipo sculpts the body to a perfect, natural shape, removing fat from certain areas and if necessary, or the best possible contours.

Before your High Definition Liposuction
If you are already healthy but are struggling to get those stubborn pockets of fat out of the way for a defined appearance, HD Lipo is for you. The ideal candidate for HD Lipo is someone who is in good shape and has solid, underlying musculature. You are also a good candidate if you do not have too much fat that needs removing. This procedure can give you that lean, defined, “shredded” look.
HD Lipo is perfect for those who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) in the normal range and good skin quality, as well as those who lead a healthy lifestyle. This procedure helps to change your body while keeping you healthy. It is also important to have good skin elasticity before getting this procedure, as otherwise, your skin may sag.
HD Lipo has certain advantages over regular liposuction. HD Lipo removes the deeper layers of fat, as well as fat at the superficial and subdermal layers. This ensures that fat between the skin and the muscles can be removed. This is how HD Lipo sculpts the body, rather than simply removing the fat.
Prior to your HD Lipo, you may be feeling nervous and may have a lot of questions for your cosmetic surgeon. This is quite natural and your initial consultation with your surgeon is of the utmost importance.
Dr. S. Suma understands the importance of the initial consultation. She will take a detailed medical history as well as to conduct a detailed physical exam. She will also answer all your questions and assess whether you are the right candidate for HD Lipo.
During your High Definition Liposuction
HD Lipo is typically performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure. However, your surgeon may choose to perform the surgery in a surgical facility, if a large volume of fat needs to be removed. The length of the procedure will depend on what areas are being treated and how much fat needs to be removed.
Your surgeon will make tiny, hidden incisions to insert the device that will remove the fat. If your surgeon decides to inject the removed fat into other parts of your body, this fat will be purified before re-injecting. This is called “fat transfer”. A good surgeon will give you symmetrical, properly-proportioned sculpting that enhances and highlights your natural shape.
Precautions and Procedures before and after High Definition Liposuction
You should follow your surgeon’s instructions to the letter, before, during, and after HD Lipo. Prior to performing HD Lipo, your surgeon may ask you to refrain from having certain medications, for at least two weeks prior to surgery. These may include aspirin-based medicines, certain anti-inflammatory drugs, blood-thinners, and some herbal supplements, as these can cause excess bleeding and may delay healing.
If you smoke or consume alcohol regularly, your surgeon may ask you to stop there for about four weeks prior to surgery and for about four weeks after surgery as well. This is because nicotine and alcohol impair circulation and may cause complications and delayed healing.
You should drink lots of water in the weeks prior to surgery, as well as look after your general health and nutrition. You should also exercise regularly. This is so that you strengthen your body and enable it to heal more quickly post-surgery. You should also have enough nutrients in store so that your body has the energy it needs to recover from HD Lipo.
Post-surgery, you will most likely be placed in a compression garment, which will reduce swelling and the build-up of fluid. The compression garment should not be removed at all for about two days after surgery. After two days, you can remove the compression garment to take a shower, but should put it back on immediately. This compression garment should be worn for at least four weeks after surgery.
Your surgeon will place drains beneath the skin to remove the unwanted fluid. You can also expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort for the first few days post-surgery. The swelling may get a bit worse before it begins to improve. Wearing your compression garment will keep the swelling down.
You may feel slight numbness in and around the areas that have been treated. Normal sensation will return in those areas, given a little time. You should also refrain from any strenuous physical activity for the first two weeks post-surgery.
Pursuing too many activities after your surgery may increase your risk of bleeding. You may begin to perform light exercise about two weeks after your surgery and may gradually increase your activity. You can start work about a week to 10 days after surgery. You should ask your cosmetic surgeon about what precautions and procedures to follow before and after your HD Lipo surgery. She is the right person to guide you as to your unique recovery process. She will also reassure you as to the result you can expect post-surgery.
High Definition Liposuction Result
HD Lipo can sculpt the entire body by melting unwanted fat. It can very precisely remove pockets of fat in strategic and sometimes hard-to-reach areas. Successful HD Lipo can result in intoned and more athletic body contours; shapelier arms and shoulders; the appearance of six-pack abs, and more voluminous buttocks.
Your surgical results will be best seen at about six weeks post-surgery. However, your body will continue to heal over the next four months. Following certain precautions such as having a good diet, staying well hydrated, and wearing your compression garment can result in a quick and relatively painless recovery. Some surgeons recommend a lymphatic massage post-surgery for a few weeks. You can consult with your surgeon as to whether a regular massage can help you.
If you are looking to get HD Lipo, you should certainly consult Dr. S. Suma. She is as skilled a surgeon, as she is a communicator and she will help you become completely comfortable with the entire process, before, during, and after surgery.
