How Long Should I Wait Between HD Lipo Sessions for Multiple Areas?
For many patients, high-definition (HD) liposuction can provide optimal results in a single session. However, for those men and women who’d like to slim down and enhance muscle definition in more than one area of the body, multiple HD lipo procedures may be needed. Here, you’ll find a helpful guide to HD liposuction at Sawan Surgical Aesthetics from Oklahoma City board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kamal Sawan on what to know about the procedure, including how many treatments you may need, how long you may need to wait between treatment sessions, and why that downtime is important for ensuring a safe, efficient, and effective procedure.
What is HD lipo?
Also known as high-definition lipo, high-def lipo, or high-def liposuction, HD lipo is a unique form of fat removal surgery that specifically aims to create a more defined and toned physique through strategic and precise fat extraction. For example, many men turn to HD liposuction to achieve the highly sought-after “six pack” — or shredded abs — which can be created by carefully removing fat cells around and between the abdominal muscles.
How is HD lipo performed?
Hi-def liposuction by Dr. Sawan is performed using general anesthesia in a fully accredited surgical facility. To begin, Dr. Sawan will make a small incision near the treatment area and insert the liposuction cannula beneath the skin. Using extreme precision and a skilled, artful eye, Dr. Sawan will then carefully harvest fat cells from targeted areas between, within, and around the muscle fascia to enhance muscular definition and lines. If desired, the extracted fat can then be transferred to another area to add volume and boost contours. Common treatment areas for HD lipo include:
How much fat can be removed during HD liposuction?
Unlike traditional liposuction, the goal of HD liposuction is not just to slim down by removing as much fat as possible. Instead, HD lipo aims to accentuate muscle lines for a more shredded and defined physique. During your initial consultation for Oklahoma City HD liposuction, Dr. Sawan will evaluate your areas of concern and discuss with you how much fat it may be possible to remove during your procedure. In many cases, patients may require multiple HD lipo sessions to achieve their desired result — particularly if they have a higher BMI and/or wish to address more than one area of the body. For these patients, it may be necessary to schedule HD lipo procedures at periodic intervals.
How often can I get HD lipo?
If you are looking to sculpt multiple areas of the body, or if you have a larger volume of excess fat to remove, you may require a series of HD liposuction sessions to achieve an optimal outcome. If so, Dr. Sawan may recommend waiting at least 3 – 4 months between your HD lipo procedures to let your body heal and recover before undergoing another surgery. Dr. Sawan understands and shares in the desire to achieve your ideal results as quickly and efficiently as possible and balances those with safety, comfort, and success.
