What is Hi Def Liposuction with vaser?

High Definition Vaser Liposuction, also referred to as Hi Def Liposculpture, is an advanced method of contouring and sculpting the body to highlight the natural anatomical features. This creates the visual appearance of a naturally defined cut and toned physique. Hi Def Lipsculpture is different from traditional liposuction, in that traditional liposuction does not involve the same degree of very detailed anatomical body sculpting. Vaser-assisted liposuction removes the fat from the superficial and deep adipose tissue layers in order to sculpt the human body.

Hi Def Vaser Liposculpture involves liposuction using the Vaser liposuction technology. Vaser uses ultrasonic waves to emulsify the fat that is contained under the skin’s surface. By emulsifying this fat in a very precise way, Dr. Karen Soika is then able to remove the fat and etch the body’s contour to create the shadows and reflections that simulate natural toned and defined anatomy.

This procedure can create naturally defined areas of the entire body including the shoulders, arms, torso, pecs, abdomen, buttocks, legs, thighs and calves, making this a total body defining technique.

Vaser High Definition LiposuctionAm I a good candidate for Hi Def vaser liposuction?

Good candidates for High Def Vaser Liposculpture are generally fit patients who wish to eliminate fat deposits in very stubborn or delicate areas of the body that will require substantial precision and definition. Those with a healthy BMI, a small amount of excess skin, at a stable weight or are close to their ideal weight, and have the ability to take up to several days off for recovery are excellent potential candidates for this procedure.

High Def vaser liposuction recovery and results

Discomfort is usually mild and easily controlled by medications, and resolves very quickly over the course of a few days. Most patients can be up and around walking comfortably without much assistance after a day or two, but may require some assistance in the first 24 to 48 hours.

Hi Def Liposuction does involve more extensive aftercare that traditional liposuction. In order to achieve these incredible total defining results, patients need to have a little more time for recovery, which is vital in achieving their optimal results. The best results are seen after two or three months. Aftercare includes a very dedicated use of specific body compression garments, as well as post-procedure ultrasound, lymphatic massage, the use of hyperbaric oxygen, and correct exercise and nutrition. All of these in combination are important in helping patients achieve optimal results after the procedure.

Most patients who are coming from out of town will be able to have this procedure done, and after approximately eight days of post-procedure recovery and post-procedure care will then be able to return home comfortably. Local patients can return home after one or two days of being in a post-operative care facility. An alternative is to have a nurse come to the residence and attend to the patient if they are not able to be alone for 24 to 48 hours after the procedure.

Results from Hi Def Lipo are natural-looking and result in a more youthful appearance. Many patients also experience a boost in self-esteem after their procedure.

    I suffered deep thermal burns to my face caused by the incompetence of a Dermatologist for 1 year with no relief, until I met Dr. Soika. She administered a treatment to give me the relief I was looking for. She was the only Dr.who took the time to listen, diagnose and performed a procedure with great results! Because of her, I am on the road to recovery!
