Hi-Definition Liposuction

What Is Hi-Def Lipo?

Skilled plastic surgeon Dr. Jules Walters provides innovative body sculpting procedures, including high-definition liposculpture (Hi-Def lipo), to help New Orleans patients achieve a more sculpted, defined appearance. Though it is often utilized on the arms, flanks, thighs, waist, buttocks, and back, it is most commonly used on the abdominal area to provide slimming results. At the MODERN Plastic Surgery & Medspa, we utilize the advanced VASER technology system to perform Hi-Def liposuction. Dr. Jules Walters traveled to Bogota, Colombia, to learn under Dr. Alfredo Hoyos, the inventor of Hi-Definition Liposuction, and underwent full immersion High Def Lipo Training.

Dr. Walters is one of a few surgeons around the world to become a Total Definer Master in High Def Lipo. The VASERlipo® system effectively provides the desired outcome by using ultrasound energy to gently break down the fat cells from the surrounding tissue. After the fat is eliminated, the underlying musculature becomes more noticeable. As a state-of-the-art procedure at our New Orleans, LA, facility, Hi-Def liposuction can help contour, sculpt, and reshape areas of the body to allow for better definition and exceptional results. Learn more about this procedure by contacting Dr. Jules Walters today to schedule your initial consultation.

Hi-Def Lipo Technique

Prior to the start of your Hi-Def liposuction treatment, a local anesthetic is administered in order to numb the treatment area properly. This can also effectively reduce the size of the blood vessels beneath the skin to better control bruising and discomfort. During the actual procedure, the VASER probe is applied over the treatment area and ultrasonic waves are administered, helping to break down the fat tissue. The advanced ultrasound technology also leaves the surrounding area unharmed. With the Hi-Def liposuction procedure, Dr. Walters can precisely remove the fat to reveal the sculpted muscle definition below. Once the treatment is complete, the treatment area may appear slightly red and swollen, but those aftereffects will start fading after a week or two.

What To Expect

Following your Hi-Def liposuction treatment, it can take a few weeks for your optimal outcome to appear; however, many of our patients notice results almost immediately. It is also important that you stick to a healthy diet and exercise routine in order to help your results last as long as possible. If desired, touch-up appointments may also be available to maintain your newly sculpted physique.
