HD Liposuction at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery
HD liposuction picks up where other types of liposuction leave off. This highly precise technique generates results far more dramatic than other liposuction methods because it targets the deepest layers of fat on the body using a smaller cannula. It also takes longer to perform than traditional liposuction and requires greater surgical expertise.
How it works
HD liposuction is a surgical operation requiring general anesthesia. During this procedure, the surgeon uses a tiny cannula and suction to remove fat cells in a meticulous process from around your musculature. If desired, the fat may be injected elsewhere on the body; both techniques serve to enhance muscle definition. This procedure can be performed on multiple areas of the body at once, and is most commonly used to define the abdomen and chest.

HD liposuction helps you carve out a lean physique and eliminate fat that no amount of training and dieting will correct. Often performed as a procedure called “abdominal etching,” this procedure can be performed on the abdomen to get you closer to six-pack abs, super-defined boxer’s muscles and shredded obliques.
But the benefits don’t stop there. In fact, one of the biggest advantages of HD liposuction is its incredible versatility. This procedure can be performed almost anywhere on the body including:
- Calves and ankles
- Chin and neck
- Hips, flanks and thighs
- Upper arms
What to Expect During Your HD Liposuction Surgery
You’ll be under general anesthesia for the duration of the operation, which can last anywhere from 1–4 hours. The length of the procedure depends on how many areas you’re having treated, how much fat is being removed and whether you’re also undergoing a fat transfer.
After surgery, you’ll need to take time off work and your usual activities to rest for 7–10 days. Expect some bruising, tenderness and swelling. During that time, you’ll wear a compression garment, which reduces swelling and helps blood circulate, allowing your body to heal faster.
After 2–4 weeks, you can usually resume light activity and exercise. Don’t return to your usual workout routines until you have clearance from your surgeon.
If you maintain your presurgery lifestyle, the definition you achieve from HD liposuction will be long lasting. However, weight gain and pregnancy will affect the longevity of your results.

Results from your HD liposuction procedure will take several weeks to appear while your body recuperates and the swelling subsides. Full results will develop within 1–3 months.
Complementary and Alternative Treatments
Not sure if HD liposuction is right for you, but still interested in a body sculpting solution? We can offer several other options:
- Tumescent liposuction: This more standard form of liposuction can reduce unwanted fat from almost anywhere on the body; it has a shorter recovery period and does not require general anesthesia, but it can’t provide the same level of muscle definition.
- Abdominoplasty: If you’re dealing with excess skin and fat on the lower stomach, an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck may be right for you. This outpatient procedure trims your waistline and is especially effective for people who have recently undergone major weight loss or who have a sagging stomach post pregnancy.
- CoolSculpting: For those unwilling or unable to undergo cosmetic surgery, CoolSculpting is a 100% noninvasive alternative. The procedure involves freezing and destroying fat cells using a patented device; fat cells are naturally expelled from the body, leaving you with a slimmer look.
How Much Does HD Liposuction Cost?
HD liposuction is considered the most highly technical type of liposuction and requires advanced, specialized equipment; therefore the cost is higher than other forms of liposuction. For details on our liposuction prices, give us a call.

HD Liposuction FAQ
Is liposuction safe?
Liposuction is considered very safe. However, it is a surgery and all surgeries are associated with a certain amount of risk. Possible complications include bleeding, contour irregularities, fluid accumulation and numbness. To reduce your risk of complications, choose a board-certified plastic surgeon with experience in HD liposuction specifically, such as Dr. McFadden or Dr. Felice.
Will I have visible scars?
Liposuction incisions are generally less than an inch long. A good plastic surgeon will be sure to place the incisions in areas where they will be less noticeable.
What happens if I gain weight after liposuction?
If you gain weight post-surgery, you’ll do so proportionately all over your body. Although HD liposuction does remove a high percentage of fat, any remaining cells will grow in size as you gain weight, and cells from elsewhere in the body may migrate to the area where surgery was performed.
