VASER High-Definition Liposuction is a minimally invasive ultrasound, body contouring technology. It can be used to eliminate unwanted fat from many areas of the body, including the tummy, love handles and thighs. VASER Hi Def Lipo is an advanced body sculpting technique. By removing the fat around muscle groups, it creates a sculpted, athletic appearance, making muscles look more defined. Using precision contouring, VASER Lipo can help you to finally achieve the toned look you’ve always wanted.

In terms of contouring, there are very strategic areas of the body that require micro etching and an artistic eye which have been termed “Negative Spaces” by Dr. Alfredo Hoyos, an internationally renowned plastic and reconstructive surgeon. By performing comprehensive liposuction of all layers of fat in these “negative spaces,” patients can expect amazing definition that has not been previously possible through traditional liposuction.

Negative Spaces of the Arms

In order to achieve high definition liposuction results of the arms, Dr. Mowlavi analyzes and contours several regions which include:

  1. the anterior and posterior deltoid line
  2. the biceps and triceps convexities
  3. the anterior and posterior axillary fullness
  4. lower arm fullness, often referred to as bat wings

With the use of the VASER system it is now possible to contour all of these regions, thereby providing optimal results. The VASER system provides significant advantages over traditional liposuction methods including:

  1. micro-etching in the superficial plane so that definition can be obtained between the deltoids and biceps when observed from the front as well as between the deltoids and triceps when observed from the front.
  2. skin tightening of the lower arm region which is often plagued by not only excess fat but also excess skin. Skin tightening is induced by the ultrasound effect of the VASER titanium tips.

Negative Spaces of the Back and Buttocks

To achieve amazing VASER High-Def Lipo results of the back and buttocks, Dr. Mowlavi performs comprehensive lipo contouring of all areas surrounding the buttocks. He knows that your buttock shape and size are just as important as the frame surrounding the buttocks. These surrounding areas include the lower back, flanks, lower lateral thigh, and medial thighs.

  1. There is one semilunar region in the lower internal gluteal area, directly medial to the midline gluteal cleft.
  2. There is one slightly larger semilunar region in the lower external gluteal area, which is the conversion point between the lateral buttocks and the lower lateral leg.
  3. There is a large triangular area of the medial thigh directly inferior to region #1 that can be defined.
  4. There is a larger triangular area of the lateral posterior thigh that can be defined. This region is directly inferior from region #2.
  5. There is a region referred to as the green zone, which is bound by two lines originating from the point of maximum indentation (PMI) of the waist (locate the inferior costal margin of the anterior superior iliac crest and follow the lateral musculature). The first line travels from the PMI to the superior area of the intergluteal crease, while the second line travels from the superior area of the intergluteal crease to the superior iliac crest laterally.
  6. The last region is referred to as the red zone, which can be located by tracing a line from the superior area of the intergluteal crease to the trochanteric depression on the lateral aspect of gluteus maximus. The red zone should be treated carefully, as this is a transition point between the green zone and the trochanteric depression

Before & After: Vaser Lipo of the thighs and buttocks

In summary, successful high definition liposuction results can be quite dramatic but requires a surgeon who possesses an intimate knowledge of human anatomy, expert surgical precision and an artistic eye. Almost everyone is a candidate for VASER Liposuction, as long as they have fat accumulation in unwanted areas. Patients who are closer to their ideal body weight will obtain the best muscle definition results. For more information and to determine if you are a good candidate for this specialized procedure, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Mowlavi, Orange County’s top VASER Liposuction Surgeon.
