Fat pads or areas of fat accumulation on females.
Fat pads or areas of fat accumulation on males.
In general, females maintain a higher percentage of their body fat superficial to the muscles; this is in contrast, to males who tend to have a large portion of their fat stored in their gut, termed intra-abdominal fat. Unfortunately, this internal fat is not amenable to liposculpture. In addition, females tend to accumulate a greater percentage of their fat over the pelvic region, hips, lower back, buttocks, thighs, and legs. In contrast, males tend to accumulate their fat over the chest, abdomen, and flanks.
When areas of fat accumulation were removed using traditionally performed liposuction techniques, only over-all body contour improvements were appreciated by patients. However, with the addition of high definition liposuction techniques, specific muscle etching, highlighting and contour, can now be achieved. Direct lighting that can form desirable shadows and light contrast for visible muscle definition, once only possible for fitness models can now be attained by the anyone.
Almost everyone is a candidate for VASER High Def Liposculpture, as long as they have fat accumulation in unwanted areas. Patients who are closer to their ideal body weight will see the best results in etching around their muscles to obtain muscle definition. Patients with moderate to severe skin redundancy may require an additional tucking procedure along with VASER liposuction.
