Stubborn Fat Areas Are No Match For HD Liposuction

Most everyone has at least one or two areas on their body that just don’t seem to respond to diet and exercise in the way they’d expect. Even men and women who are in relatively good shape everywhere else often struggle with a few of these problem areas. At Sawan Surgical Aesthetics, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kamal Sawan enjoys helping Oklahoma City men and women finally achieve their desired look with an extensive range of cutting-edge techniques and technologies, including high-definition liposuction. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at what sets HD lipo apart from regular liposuction and how it can be used to conquer even the most stubborn areas of fat.

What is the difference between HD lipo vs. regular liposuction?

Often used on men, high-def liposuction is a precision-based procedure that allows Dr. Sawan to meticulously sculpt certain features and lines by selectively removing fat cells. In particular, fat cells between and around muscles – like the abs – can be suctioned out via HD lipo in order to create more visible muscle definition.

Where can HD lipo be used?

For some patients, their desired HD lipo treatment areas are simply resistant to traditional diet and exercise efforts, while other men and women turn to HD lipo solely to enhance their muscle definition. HD liposuction can help to define a patient’s figure and reduce stubborn fat virtually from head to toe, though it is most commonly used in the following areas:

  • Abs/abdomen
  • Pecs/chest
  • Flanks
  • Thighs
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Knees
  • Calves

How does HD lipo work?

The details of an HD lipo procedure will vary from patient to patient based on a number of factors, including how many areas are being treated if any additional procedures are being performed simultaneously, and others. Generally speaking, HD liposuction is performed using general anesthesia and involves inserting a handheld tool through a tiny incision near the area of treatment. Dr. Sawan then uses a combination of precision and artistry to remove stubborn fat cells between and/or around the muscle groups to produce striking lines and clearer definition. After the procedure, patients will need to wear compression garments around the clock (with the exception of showering) for several weeks to help control postoperative swelling and to encourage proper healing and a smooth, even result.

Can fat come back after HD lipo?

One of the most exciting aspects of HD liposuction fat removal is that the fat cells that are taken from the body will not return, meaning your results could potentially be long-term. However, losing or gaining weight after HD lipo can cause remaining fat cells to shrink or swell, resulting in a significant change to your appearance. For this reason, patients considering high-def lipo should be at or near their goal weight prior to the procedure and should be committed to maintaining a healthy, stable weight after surgery. With this approach, the results of HD lipo can last for years or even decades.
