Lipo Alta Definição


High Definition Liposuction is a surgical procedure indicated to remove excess localized a given area, helping to improve the contour and definition of the body, treating sagging skin.


Ideal for removing localized fat in patients who may have moderate sagging.

Over the last decade, surgical fat removal techniques have benefited from important technological advances, allowing more precise results to be achieved.


High Definition Liposuction involves vibroliposuction techniques,

combined with ultrasonic technology - Lipo Vaser, and state-of-the-art radio frequency - Bodytite.

This combination of technologies allows us to improve the technique of liposculpture and high-definition liposuction.

High Definition Liposuction is an effective surgery for permanently removing accumulated fat, contributing to a firmer and more elegant body.

In the operating room, the localized fat is aspirated, using state-of-the-art equipment, which allows for a more defining result and an improvement in sagging.


Using the Lipo Vaser equipment helps in the fat removal process.


This equipment emits an ultrasonic wave that liquefies the fat, making it easier to aspirate through very fine cannulas, allowing for a more precise result.

The combination with invasive bipolar radio frequency technology - Bodytite, causes skin retraction, reducing sagging.

Through a cannula inserted in the subcutaneous plane, Bodytite emits a heat wave of 70ºC, controlled by precise sensors, increasing skin retraction.


This combination of cutting-edge technologies allows for a more improved final result when compared to conventional liposuction.


Procedure carried out in the operating room, with sedation or general anesthesia.


Surgery time from 1 to 5 hours, depending on the amount of fat to be removed.

The need for post-surgical hospitalization depends on the volume of fat aspirated,

ranging from outpatient to 2 nights.


Small incisions made in natural skin folds, with minimal, almost imperceptible scars after 3 months, 

located in areas of low body exposure.

You can resume work activity in 3 to 4 days after surgery, but sporting activity is only recommended after 1 to 4 months.


Essential post-operative care includes the use of an elastic compression garment and manual lymphatic drainage.

AHigh Definition Liposuction allows for faster recovery, with less edema (swelling) and less  ecchymoses and hematomas (bruises).
