Can HD Lipo Enhance the Appearance of My Muscles?

woman's body

Liposuction ("lipo") is a procedure that removes excess fat from specific areas of the body. While lipo is often used for slimming down, some people are now exploring this innovative treatment for muscle enhancement. High-definition (HD) liposuction at Sawan Surgical Aesthetics addresses specific muscle groups to create a toned appearance patients love.

Body contouring can boost your confidence levels and make form-fitting clothing like bathing suits look and feel even better. Below, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kamal Sawan takes a closer look at HD liposuction in Oklahoma City and how we help patients get beach-body ready.

Why muscle definition matters

Even a strict workout routine may not be enough to provide muscle definition in areas like the chest, abdomen, upper arms, or calves. This is because some people are genetically predisposed to hold fat in these areas, no matter how much they diet or exercise. Fat removal through HD liposuction could be the answer if you feel self-conscious about your lack of muscle definition.

How high-definition liposuction works

Dr. Sawan starts HD liposuction by making small incisions in the treatment area, then carefully inserting a device called a cannula. Our team uses cutting-edge tools for greater precision and control, resulting in less trauma to the surrounding tissue. We then sculpt the muscle to provide a contoured appearance. Our techniques ensure a safe experience that reduces the overall amount of time spent in recovery.

What are the benefits of HD liposuction?

There are many reasons to consider a procedure like high-definition liposuction. For example, athletes of all levels can enhance their appearance and improve their performance by achieving greater muscle definition. Others find that clothing seems to fit better after fat removal. Swimsuits, bathing suits, and bikinis also look more flattering when the body is more toned.

The results of HD liposuction are very natural-looking. You can expect some mild and temporary swelling in the treatment area afterward, but this should subside within a few weeks. The final results are visible once any residual swelling has eventually dissipated.

How Dr. Sawan personalizes liposuction

Sawan Surgical Aesthetics always makes suggestions based on your goals and desired outcomes. Once we determine your candidacy for HD liposuction in Oklahoma City, we choose one or more treatment areas and develop a custom plan moving forward. Dr. Sawan can target muscle groups like the deltoids, pectoralis muscles, or abdominal muscles. We may recommend HD lipo in the chest, abdomen, upper arms, calves, and lower back/flanks.

Will the fat come back?

Fat removal through high-definition liposuction is considered long-term since the removed cells cannot come back. However, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle with a balanced diet and regular exercise to ensure that the remaining fat cells won't grow.

Sawan Surgical Aesthetics can provide specific recommendations to achieve long-term results after HD liposuction. Exercises like crunches, planks, and squats may maintain or improve muscle tone in the treated areas.
