What is the difference between high definition liposuction and traditional liposuction?

Traditional liposuction involves removing excess fat from select parts of the body. High definition liposuction, on the other hand, accents certain muscle groups by strategically removing fat and sculpting your body. During your private consultation, Dr. Lee will examine your concerns and determine the treatment best suited for you.

“Another surgeon recommended Dr. Lee. His quote was, ‘She's an artist!’ My experience has been wonderful. Dr. Lee and her staff have been pleasant, thorough and thoughtful. I am very pleased.”

How exactly is liposuction performed?

Liposuction is among the most popular cosmetic procedures on the planet. It can be performed under local or general anesthesia depending on the amount of fat removed. During the procedure, a numbing fluid is first injected to not only numb the area but prevent blood loss.

After the injection of fluid, a thin tube known as a cannula is inserted through a small incision near the target area. Excess fat is then suctioned out of the body and either discarded, or saved for use during a fat transfer procedure. Liposuction is often used in tandem with another surgical treatment, such as male breast reduction, mommy makeover, arm lift or a thigh lift.
