Liposuction HD, aka High Definition Liposuction is a form of Vaser liposuction, where shadows and curves are deliberately created during liposuction to give the impression of muscular definition. To give the impression that the person is fit and athletic. Various methods of power-assisted liposuction like Vaser, Microaire and Water-jet can be used to achieve high-definition liposuction, this particular method was invented by the creators of the Vaser technology. Hence it is also called Vaser HD. David Loh Surgery is an aesthetic clinic that is MOH accredited to perform office based liposuction. Dr David Loh also operates at a day Surgery in Novena. Vaser HD is normally performed in operating theatre with an anaesthetist to administer sedation. The recovery time is not much more than non-high definition liposuction. The long term determination to keep lean after Vaser HD should also be the same as with normal liposuction.
NB: This is not the same as “etching” of the skin other liposuction techniques.
NB: The fats are “carved” into muscle shapes, so a fair bit of effort is needed to maintain it. And it feels like fat, not muscle, to touch.
WHO IS SUITABLE?
Both men and women who are reasonably fit are suitable for Liposuction HD. But success is seen most in otherwise gym-fit individuals and in those with moderate amounts of subcutaneous fat.
