When you’re putting in hard work at the gym, there’s nothing better than the feeling of looking in the mirror and finally seeing those hard-earned results. Unfortunately, stubborn fat deposits that resist even your most dedicated efforts can make this moment seem unattainable. With VASER hi-def liposuction, however, Tallahassee men and women have the opportunity to make sure their work is reflected in the way they look and feel, including that sought-after 6-pack.
Read on to learn more about enhancing your muscle definition and achieving a body you feel amazing about with HD lipo.
What Is VASER Hi-Def liposuction?
VASER hi-def liposuction, also called high-definition liposuction or HD lipo, is a plastic surgery procedure in which ultrasonic vibrations break up fat tissue, which is then suctioned out of the body through a small tube called a cannula. It’s a specialized combination of technology and technique that provides more precisely sculpted results than traditional liposuction.
One of the greatest benefits of this technology is that it allows for deeper fat removal between the muscles, most commonly in the abdomen. This is called abdominal etching, and it creates a more chiseled midsection with natural-looking muscle definition in addition to the standard contouring or slimming effect. It’s ideal for gently suctioning away the fat above and around the abs to make that muscle definition more visible and attractive.
How Is VASER Hi-Def Liposuction Different From Traditional Liposuction?
In traditional liposuction, your surgeon uses the cannula’s motion to break up the fat tissue. VASER’s ultrasound energy allows for a more precise and gentle breakdown of the fat, making the tissue easier to target and remove, especially in small or detailed areas.

Who Is a Candidate for VASER Hi-Def Liposuction?
The best candidate for VASER hi-def liposuction is looking to refine and enhance their muscle definition in targeted areas. Men and women who benefit most are typically dedicated to healthy lifestyles and want to highlight the hard work they’ve already put in at the gym. The areas they most commonly want to treat include the:
- Lower back
- Upper arms
- Male chest
Hi-def liposuction is most effective for people who are within 30% of their ideal weight, have good muscle tone and skin elasticity, and who are nonsmokers in generally good health.
