High-definition lipo or “high-def lipo” is an advanced liposuction technique used to deliberately accentuate muscle bellies to create a more toned and athletic physique. High-def lipo is most effective in the individual who already has good muscle tone and leaner body composition. Areas such as the arms, abdomen, buttocks, and male chest are frequently sculpted with high-def techniques.

What is high def liposuction?

High def lipo is an advanced technique used to highlight the shape of the underlying muscle beneath the fat by selectively suctioning out fat at variable depths on top of and around the muscles, making them appear more defined or sometimes referred to as “etched”.

What will my recovery be like?

Recovery is similar to standard liposuction in that downtime is minimal, and swelling and bruising is minimal. Unique to high-def lipo, particularly in the male chest and abdominal region, is the application of additional compression padding along the border of the muscles that help create the desired look.

Hi-def lipo can be performed on the following:

  • Arms
  • Stomach
  • Chest
  • Buttocks

Why choose Dr. Pratt for high-def lipo in Charlotte, NC?

Liposuction allows the plastic surgeon to completely transform one’s physique by targeting fat deposits in areas that may otherwise be resistant to diet and exercise. High-def liposuction takes contouring to the next level through precision-based suction at variable depths around a muscle, creating a more defined or etched look. Dr. Pratt has performed thousands of liposuction procedures and reserves high-def lipo for select individuals. Although the idea of having a more defined midsection or sculpted arms is appealing to many liposuction patients, proper patient selection is essential in order to achieve a natural-looking contour rather than an artificially manufactured one. Dr. Pratt will use his discretion in determining if you are an appropriate candidate for high-def lipo. Although this technique is intended to accentuate muscle definition, the results are intended to look natural. Overly aggressive high-def lipo can lead to unwanted contour irregularities that can be difficult to treat.

Dr. Pratt graduated from the University of Florida College of Medicine and went on to complete a general surgery residency at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, NC. He then completed a fellowship in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. 

He is in private practice in beautiful south Charlotte, in the heart of Ballantyne. His practice is dedicated exclusively to aesthetic surgery of the breast, body, and face.
