VASER Hi-Def for Men

VASER Hi-Def is a type of liposuction that uses ultrasonic energy to break up and remove stubborn fat.

Surgeons utilize this advanced technology to help their patients achieve natural-looking muscle definition, for coveted “six-pack” abs and other body enhancements.

What is VASER Hi-Def?

VASER, an acronym for vibration amplification of sound energy at resonance, liposuction utilizes extremely gentle ultrasound waves to emulsify fat cells. The liposuction technique emits pulsed energy at 36 kHz, the level that directly targets fatty tissues without affecting surrounding structures. This makes it possible to destroy and remove subcutaneous fat without damaging important blood vessels and connective tissue. VASER Hi-Def is a sub-specialty of this kind of liposuction that targets certain areas of fat to sculpt muscle definition. It is extremely useful for creating abdominal, arm, and leg definition and for sculpting the buttocks and sides of a patient. (1)

Body Contouring with VASER Hi-Def

The goal of VASER Hi-Def for body contouring is to create an aesthetically pleasing and naturally toned physique by selectively removing excess fat while defining and enhancing muscle contours. Using an artistic eye, Dr. Tehrani maps out a natural-looking pattern that matches your existing musculature. This procedure is best utilized to accentuate attractive male contours along the abdomen, arms, and legs by removing very small layers of fat and leaving others. To make the procedure even safer, Dr. Tehrani infiltrates the treatment areas with tumescent fluid using a long and hollow tube (cannula) or a syringe. This solution is a mixture of sterile saline, epinephrine, and lidocaine that properly loosens the fat, numbs the area, and makes removal easier. (2)

This system uses a small-diameter VASER ultrasonic probe to deliver energy through small and concealable incisions. To achieve optimal results, Dr. Tehrani inserts this probe carefully to destroy very specific sections of fatty tissue along the pre-marked contour areas. He then uses medical-grade suction to remove the emulsified tissue. (1) VASER Hi-Def can emphasize abdominal muscles, sculpt around the biceps and triceps, and draw attention to a patient’s calf or thigh muscles.

Benefits of Liposuction for Men

Since 1997, liposuction has remained the most frequently performed cosmetic procedure within the world of plastic surgery. (1) Though it is more commonly performed on women, men receive the same benefits from undergoing these procedures.

VASER Hi-Def can benefit male patients by:

  • Sculpting the abdominal muscles
  • Accentuating the biceps, triceps, and shoulders
  • Refining the pectorals and the chest area
  • Highlighting masculine buttocks
  • Chiseling the sides and oblique muscles
  • Contouring the quads and calf muscles
  • Defining the jawline and chin area

This procedure is simple, quick, and typically painless. Using tumescent fluid provides safety for the internal structures and important vascular systems while numbing the entire treatment area. Male patients can achieve a more proportionate and sculpted physique with just one session of VASER Hi-Def liposuction.

Ideal Candidates

To qualify for VASER Hi-Def liposuction, patients should be in good overall health and at or close to their goal weight. Because this is not a weight loss procedure, the patients that will benefit the most should have a small amount of excess fat around the desired treatment areas. They should also have reasonable expectations for what the procedure can accomplish. Patients should be non-smokers or be willing to quit before liposuction surgery. The ideal candidate for VASER Hi-Def is someone with an active lifestyle who exercises regularly. They can achieve optimal results if they commit to a healthy diet as well.

Private Consultation with Dr. Tehrani

A vital first step of the procedure process is attending a consultation with Dr. Tehrani. During your initial meeting, he will discuss VASER Hi-Def liposuction and explain how it can help you achieve your cosmetic goals. Next, he will perform a physical examination and inquire about your medical history to better understand your situation. You will have plenty of time to ask questions about the procedure process. Dr. Tehrani will provide thorough preparation and postoperative instructions after explaining your customized treatment plan. At the end of this meeting, a member of the Tehrani Plastic Surgery staff will help you book your procedure.


After their consultation, patients should discontinue tobacco and nicotine use as soon as possible to prepare for surgery. These substances negatively impact the body’s ability to heal. To decrease the risk of excessive bleeding, they should avoid NSAIDs and herbal supplements like ibuprofen, aspirin, Aleve, vitamin E, and fish oil. Patients should also schedule some time off of work to initially recuperate. We also recommend picking up any new prescriptions and asking a friend or family member to provide transportation before the surgery date. This reduces stress and makes the process easier for everyone involved.

VASER Hi-Def Liposuction Procedure

VASER procedures typically employ local anesthetic to keep you comfortable. Dr. Tehrani administers this and tumescent fluid into the treatment area. Once the area is completely numb, he makes small incisions in the treatment area and inserts the VASER probe to disrupt and liquefy targeted fat cells. The ultrasonic energy also provides some skin tightening to the area as it destroys stubborn fatty tissue. After skillfully sculpting the fat around the existing musculature, he utilizes a liposuction cannula to remove the emulsified fat with suction. When he achieves the desired contour and muscle definition, he bandages your incisions and places a compression garment around the area. Depending on the size and location of the treatment, this procedure takes anywhere between 4 and 6 hours to complete.

Recovery & Results

The total recovery time for VASER Hi-Def liposuction varies, but you will likely need 7 to 10 days off of work to rest. Avoid strenuous activities and hard exercise for at least next three weeks, and incorporate gentle walks around your house or neighborhood into your routine. This helps regulate blood flow and keeps you active during downtime. You should wear your compression garments as directed until Dr. Tehrani says otherwise. These greatly reduce swelling and help to preserve your new chiseled contour.

You may see a significant change immediately after your liposuction procedure. As swelling dissipates, these results will improve over time. Your treatment area will appear expertly contoured and slimmed as the area settles and the muscle accentuation becomes apparent. Fat removal using liposuction is permanent, so results are typically long-lasting. To preserve your new physique, continue to follow a healthy diet and exercise routine.

Alternative Procedures and Treatments

VASER Liposuction

For patients who have a greater amount of excess fat, VASER liposuction can remove very specific fatty tissue deposits to contour and shape the body. This procedure process uses the same ultrasonic technology as VASER Hi-Def, but Dr. Tehrani focuses more on removing fat than sculpting around the muscles. It is the optimal surgery choice for patients with stubborn fat in the:

  • Abdomen
  • Sides
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Thighs
  • Calves
  • Buttocks
  • Neck

4D Liposculpture

Also known as 4D lipo, this liposuction procedure utilizes both traditional VASER methods and elements of VASER Hi-Def to achieve optimal fat removal and muscle definition. Dr. Tehrani uses this advanced system to break up the fat with ultrasonic energy. Next, he uses VASER Hi-Def to sculpt and contour the treatment areas before suctioning out the emulsified fat. Combining these two processes helps male patients remove larger amounts of stubborn fat to achieve their dream body. The ultrasonic energy can also tighten the skin and improve the results.
