What Is HD Lipo?
For many men and women, it can feel unattainable to get a defined abdomen and tone other body areas, such as the arms, chest, shoulders, buttocks, and thighs. To combat these issues without extensive time spent at the gym, high-definition (HD) liposuction is a popular, minimally invasive option. At Elysium SurgiSpa in Chicago, IL, HD lipo is performed to suction excess fat while also firming and tightening the surrounding skin through the use of two complementary systems: PAL® Power-Assisted Liposuction by MicroAire and BodyTite radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL). HD lipo removes unwanted fat and sculpts the muscles to help patients attain a more toned, defined contour. This efficient treatment involves very little downtime when compared to traditional liposuction.
What are the benefits of HD lipo?
Small fat pockets in the lower abdomen, "love handles," and thigh areas can be difficult to target through traditional diet and exercise. HD lipo can help patients achieve a more toned and defined physique without spending an extensive amount of time at the gym. Elysium SurgiSpa removes unwanted fat and sculpts the muscles to help patients attain their desired body contours. We also offer skin tightening treatments to further improve your results.
Who is a candidate for HD lipo?
Ideal candidates for HD liposuction are at or near their goal weight but have stubborn areas of fat that don’t respond to traditional diet and exercise programs. Those who are generally healthy and have good skin elasticity are typically the best candidates for HD lipo. Patients at Elysium SurgiSpa should also have realistic expectations about their results and understand that this treatment is not a comprehensive weight-loss solution. Instead, it can help individuals achieve a more contoured, toned appearance that can boost confidence and self-esteem.
How Is HD Lipo Done?
HD lipo is an outpatient treatment performed at Elysium SurgiSpa using localized or possibly general anesthesia. Once we cleanse the extraction area, the BodyTite cannula will be inserted into a small incision in your skin to melt the fat deposits with radiofrequency heat, which prepares the fat for removal. The applicator has an internal and external thermometer to guard you from burns. Next, power-assisted liposuction will be performed by inserting a very thin tube under the skin to precisely break up and extract the fat. The treatment normally takes about 30 – 45 minutes for each area of the body.
What Can I Expect After HD Lipo?
You will need to rest for 5 – 10 days following your procedure. A compression garment should be worn on the treated areas to promote healing while also holding your new body contours. What is most important following an HD lipo procedure is to allow your body time to rest and heal. Once you go back to work and your normal routine, you should do your best to go slow. To increase your strength, stick to short walks and light workouts as approved by Dr. Singh. Some results may be seen immediately; however, your final improved contoured results will not be apparent until about 3 – 6 months when the swelling and inflammation are gone.
