About High Definition Liposuction

High definition liposuction, also known as VASER liposuction, is an advanced body contouring procedure. High-def liposuction enhances muscle definition and creates a sculpted, athletic appearance by precisely targeting areas such as the abdomen, waistline, chest, arms, thighs, and back. It offers more precise and dramatic results than traditional liposuction, making it popular among individuals seeking a well-defined physique.

  • Average Cost: $4,000 to $15,000
  • Typical Recovery Period: 1 to 3 weeks
  • Discomfort Level: Mild to moderate, with some swelling, bruising, and soreness in the treated area
  • Anesthesia Options: General anesthesia or IV sedation is typically used

Groundbreaking body sculpting treatments 

Our groundbreaking body sculpting techniques can access smaller areas of the body to custom-sculpt away smaller quantities of fat to reveal muscle definition of the abdomen, thighs, upper arms, male chest, or other body areas with ultimate precision.

Have you dedicated hours to workouts, but muscle definition has eluded you? Is upper arm fat hiding your muscle structure? High definition liposuction in Palo Alto, with Dr. Graw, can create the “defined” look you envision.

How does high-definition liposuction work?

High-definition liposuction is performed with specialized equipment. The fat is extracted with precision, through small, stealth incisions, using a power-assisted device that allows for smooth transitions on the body, creating shadows where they should be on the body, and erasing them from areas where they should not exist.

Am I a candidate for high-definition liposuction in Palo Alto?

If you are close to your ideal weight and generally healthy, you are a good candidate for high-definition liposuction. While liposuction (of all types) removes fat, it is not a weight loss procedure, but a custom body sculpting treatment.

It is important that your skin is resilient so that it can conform to your underlying muscles after the targeted fat layer is removed. While this procedure has a skin-tightening factor, it may not be the appropriate treatment for some patients who have looser skin. However, we offer the gamut of body sculpting procedures to our clientele, and Dr. Graw can discuss the treatment plan that best suits you and your needs.

A private consultation will allow us to speak with you to understand your aesthetic goals, examine the areas on your body you would like to sculpt and refine and answer all your questions and concerns.

What is the procedure like to experience?

At Dr. Graw, high definition liposuction in Palo Alto starts with marking the areas to be defined. Once the areas are marked, you are prepared for surgery.

Anesthesia is administered to keep you comfortable. Dr. Graw will then meticulously perform your procedure while you are comfortably sleeping. Once the procedure is done, you will be placed in contouring foam and compression garments.

You will then be awoken from anesthesia and sent to the recovery unit to recover from your surgery. This is an outpatient procedure. Once you are comfortable, your ride will pick you up, and you will continue to recover at home. 

Recovery time after your treatment – what to expect?

It is normal to see swelling and bruising after your treatment. The sculpted areas will be covered with custom-made contouring foam pieces and a compression garment. The recovery requires around two to five days at home, after which you can return to your usual activities. You should be able to return to vigorous exercise after about four weeks, in most cases – and reveal your newly-sculpted body!

Preparing for your high-definition liposculpture treatment

Prior to your procedure, avoid any blood-thinning medications or supplements for two weeks, and do not consume any alcoholic beverage for 24 hours before your appointment. Get lots of sleep, and drink plenty of water. You will be provided with pre-treatment instructions to follow.
