Toned muscles and carefully sculpted curves have become the mainstay of every social media gym selfie in recent years. It’s not just influencers that aim for the highly sculpted look – it’s become popular with a large percentage of the general population in recent years.
Maintaining a toned physique takes effort, but the work going into a well-sculpted body isn’t always restricted to time in the gym.
The way that your body holds onto fat is largely determined by genetics, which means that some fat deposits can be difficult to shrink with exercise alone. You may be physically fit, lean and toned but still have some areas of your body that hold onto fat, making you feel self-conscious.
Liposuction has long been one of the most popular cosmetic treatments on the market. As new advances in technology are made, the procedure is becoming more powerful and versatile.
VASER liposuction is a modern version of the traditional procedure. The technique applies ultrasound technology using a small wand that’s inserted through small incisions. The ultrasound breaks up fatty tissue without harming surrounding tissues. This impressive technology is powerful but precise, making it the ideal tool to carefully carve out specific areas of the body.
With VASER Liposuction’s precise wand, your surgeon is able to target precise areas for fat removal to contour your physique. High-definition liposuction is particularly popular with athletes who want to further define their muscles.
By targeting the fat surrounding muscle groups, the surgeon is able to create a more defined look that would be difficult to achieve through exercise alone. One of the most popular uses for high-definition liposuction is to create the appearance of gym-toned abs.
High-definition liposuction is a specific use case of VASER Liposuction that removes more fat to create areas of strong definition. The treatment is flexible and can be tailored to suit the individual’s ideal body goals, but it’s often used to create the “bodybuilder” look. Muscles are outlined through the removal of fat, meaning that once the body has healed, the muscles will be much more visible.
For patients that are hoping to further define toned areas of their body in a more subtle way, mid-definition liposuction has similar results while ensuring it looks more natural.
Do I need to be fit already?
High-definition liposuction can’t sculpt muscles out of fat or etch lines into the skin to make toned muscle appear. Instead, the procedure removes the fat surrounding the muscles, making them more visible and showing off the definition you have sculpted in the gym.
Even the most physically fit athletes have some fat on their bodies, which is why high-definition liposuction is able to sculpt muscles further. With this in mind, potential patients do need to have some level of body tone to start with.
Anyone with more fat on their body due to being overweight may need to look into other treatments beforehand or continue working on their fitness for a while longer. For example, if you have belly fat, high-definition sculpting may not be the best treatment to start with. However, you don’t need to worry about being in the best shape of your life before your procedure. Liposuction is permanent as long as you maintain a similar physique after the treatment. You can continue to work on building those muscles once you have healed, and you’ll see an even better definition.
There are lots of factors to consider when deciding whether a treatment is right for you. If you’re already toned but struggling to get extra definition despite continuing your workout programme, then high-definition liposuction could be an ideal solution for you.
Our genes are responsible for a lot of the way that fat is distributed, which makes it more difficult to reduce some areas of fat than others.
If you are still in the process of losing weight, then you may need to wait a little longer to receive high-definition sculpting. If you’re struggling to lose stubborn belly fat, then standard VASER liposuction could be better suited to your body.
It’s important to take time to do your research when considering a procedure. The best way to decide on the correct treatment for you is to book a consultation with a practitioner.
