The evolution of liposuction techniques over the past few years has been nothing short of revolutionary. Traditional liposuction, as we know it, is quite effective for removing stubborn pockets of fat from various areas of the body. However, high-definition liposuction offers transformational, next-level outcomes for individuals seeking to achieve precise body contouring results.

What Is High-Definition Liposuction in Massachusetts?
Natural, toned contours are not flat; they have grooves and contours. Advanced liposuction results should be the same.
High-definition liposuction uses ultrasound-assisted technology (VASER®) to target unwanted fat from almost anywhere on the body for a slimmer, more contoured result and plasma energy (Renuvion®) to assist with skin tightening. The procedure not only removes the extra fat deposit but also offers the appearance of muscle definition. This is achieved by strategically removing the deepest layers of fat and sculpting the remaining tissues to emphasize the underlying muscles.
The procedure is particularly useful in creating smoother contours in areas such as the abdomen, obliques, back, arms, and thighs, as well as defining the rectus (abdominal), chest, and shoulders.
Patients in Massachusetts can finally achieve that ideal aesthetic they desire with VASER® and Renuvion® high-definition liposuction.

How Is High-Definition Liposuction Performed?
Often performed as an outpatient procedure, small incisions are made at the treatment area(s) to allow the insertion of the hi-def lipo device. The technique then sends ultrasound waves to melt and break up unwanted fat, which is safely removed using a special cannula. This procedure involves gentle, less aggressive fat suctioning as the fat is liquified before removal.
Instead of simply removing fat from the targeted area, Dr. Tolomeo considers the underlying frame of a person’s body to strategically remove fat and deliver highly defined results as desired. Patients who wish to add volume or roundness in certain areas can combine the procedure with fat transfer.
Renuvion® offers minimally invasive skin tightening for men and women undergoing high-def liposuction. By combining radiofrequency energy with helium plasma, this device heats the skin in the treatment area, causing the skin and underlying tissues to contract while stimulating collagen production.
This treatment requires a tiny incision near the treatment area, just large enough to insert the Renuvion® probe.
Renuvion® can be performed nearly anywhere on the face and body to restore tighter, firmer skin that further enhances your liposuction results.
Can High-Def Liposuction Be Combined With Other Cosmetic Surgeries?
Many patients combine their liposuction with a Brazilian Butt Lift to take advantage of the fat removed with the procedure. The Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) is a fat grafting option that requires liposuction to remove the fat used to augment the buttocks.
Additionally, some patients choose to perform liposuction along with other body and breast contouring procedures like tummy tuck surgery, breast augmentation, and breast lift surgery. This is commonly referred to as a Mommy Makeover.
What Is High-Definition Liposuction Recovery Like?
Like other types of liposuction, patients are wrapped in a compression dressing to reduce swelling and promote healing. You can expect to experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort for the first few days following surgery. This can be well managed with pain medication.
Recovery time will vary from patient to patient, depending on the extent of treatment. Most patients can expect a minimal recovery time of up to a week, although some may need up to 10 or 14 days to resume work and light duties. Vigorous activity must be restricted for at least two weeks to allow ample time for proper healing.
As healing progresses, you will gradually notice a toned look that brings out muscle definition in the treatment area.
Frequently Asked Questions About High-Definition Liposuction
How much does high-definition liposuction cost in Massachusetts?
The cost of high-definition liposuction in Massachusetts will vary depending on the size of the treatment area, the extent of necessary revision, and if you combine your procedure with any other surgeries, such as a tummy tuck. Once you have discussed your goals for the procedure with Dr. Tolomeo and he has created a custom treatment plan for you, he will provide you with an accurate cost estimate.
Will my high-definition liposuction results be permanent?
High-definition liposuction permanently removes fat cells in the treatment area(s). However, it is possible to gain weight in the surrounding areas, so it is important to make healthy choices to maintain results. While no cosmetic procedure can stop the signs of aging or additional changes to the body, with continued healthy choices, you should be able to enjoy the results of your liposuction procedure for years to come.
Will high-definition liposuction give me six-pack abs?
High-definition liposuction is a highly individualized fat-removing and contouring procedure. Depending on your body type and the amount of pre-existing muscle definition, Dr. Tolomeo can artfully create contours that accentuate your abdominal muscles. If your goal for this procedure is to have a more contoured, defined abdomen, discuss your options with Dr. Tolomeo during your consultation. He will be able to give you an honest assessment of expected results unique to you.
How can I maintain the results of my high-definition liposuction?
Liposuction is not a weight loss solution, so it is important to be as close to your goal weight as possible. Adopting a healthy diet and exercise regimen before your procedure and maintaining a healthy lifestyle afterward will help to maximize your high-definition liposuction results. You may wish to tone and strengthen the treatment areas further through targeted exercises.
