Perhaps you have been consistently working out at the gym and can’t achieve the six pack abs look you have been striving so hard for. You may have a great eating and exercising regime but your abs still doesn’t look well-defined and ripped like you really want. If that is the case, it’s time to consider a Hi Def Lip Sculpting procedure.
There are a few facts you need to know to be well informed on the subject of Hi Def Liposculpting before you make your final decision. Once you know all the facts, you can discuss with Dr. Steinbrech if Hi Def Liposculpting is the right choice for you.
What is Hi Def Liposculpting?
Hi Def Liposculpting removes fat from your body precisely and efficiently. Dr. Steinbrech is specially trained in this procedure. He uses the most recent ultrasound technology to remove fat from your abs, pecs, lats, obliques and other areas to give you the highly defined six pack abs you desire. This highly specialized technology can tell fat from blood vessels, nerves, and other tissue to remove only the fat. This preserves the rest of the tissue from damage and keeps damage and healing time down to a minimum.
Once you are finished with the procedure, your abs look highly defined, be tight and look chiseled. Fat is removed via gentle suction and muscles are chiseled out to give each of the areas of the six pack extreme definition.
The abs are the part of the body most frequently shaped and defined using the technique. But other parts of the body, specifically the chest, love handles, back, waist, arms, thorax and hips can be sculptured using Hi Def Liposculpture.
Where is Liposculpting Performed?
Hi Def Liposculpting procedure is performed in Dr. Steinbrech’s clinic Gotham Plastic Surgery in New York city. Gotham Plastic Surgery is a certified, state licensed surgical center. While some Hi Def liposculpture procedures can be performed under local anesthetic, more extensive procedures of this type will require general anesthesia.

Pre-Operative Care for Hi Def Liposculpting
Preparation for the Hi Def Liposculpting procedure is very similar to any other type of surgery. You and Dr. Steinbrech will consult together to determine exactly what you would like to have done, and the desired results of your surgery. Once you have decided upon a course of action, preparations are made to get you ready for the surgery itself.
Be very honest with Dr. Steinbrech about any medications you are taking. Also let him know about any steroid use, legal or illegal drugs, vitamins, supplements or herbs you take routinely. Only Dr. Steinbrech knows whether your previous procedures, medications, or health history will have an effect on your upcoming Hi Definition Liposculpting procedure. Some behaviors will shorten your healing time and add to the success of your surgery. These are:
- Discontinuing ibuprofen, aspirin, St. John’s Wort, Naprosin, Vitamin E, and other medications.
- Stop smoking at least two weeks before your surgery.
- Limit or stop drinking alcohol for two weeks before surgery.
- Drink plenty of water before and after the surgery.
- Follow the doctor’s orders exactly to prevent post-surgical problems and heal more quickly.
Post-Operative Care for Hi Def Liposculpting
Have someone responsible take you home and stay with you for the first 24 hours. If you need help finding post operative care, Gotham Plastic Surgery staff may have suggestions for post-operative help. Fill your pain prescriptions so they are ready to use after your surgery. Have plenty of pillows available to keep yourself comfortable.
What To Expect
You can expect pain, bruising, and swelling at the conclusion of your surgery. No two patients react in the same way to surgery. You may experience loss of feeling or numbness in areas around the procedure. The area should regain feeling upon healing. Pain that is not controlled by taking medication as prescribed may indicate a problem, so contact Dr. Steinbrech’s office. You may move around on the day after your surgery. You will have drainage. You may shower on the third day after surgery. It will take you about a week to be able to return to work, depending on the extent of your surgery. You will also need to wear a compression garment to help you get the desired changes in your surgical areas. There will be very minimal scarring after the procedure.
It will take several weeks for healing to be completed and for the full results of your procedure to be seen. One of the best aspects of Hi Def Liposculpting is that your surgical results will last as long as you stay the same weight. Also, if you gain weight, you won’t necessarily gain weight the surgery site.
There is always a small amount of risk in any surgery. These risks are extremely rare and include:
- Problems with anesthetic
- Allergic reactions
Dr. Steinbrech and his staff will discuss any potential risks involved before surgery. As long as you are honest about your health history and truthfully answer the questions Dr. Steinbrech asks you while preparing for surgery, these risks are very slight. In most cases, the benefits far outweigh the risks if you follow the doctor’s instructions exactly.
Are You A Good Candidate?
Any man in good health is a good candidate for the procedure. Before you have the surgery, you will probably be required to have a good physical and some routine medical tests. You may also have blood work done at a medical lab to ensure that you are healthy enough to undergo surgery. The extent of testing you need to have done before the surgery will depend on the extent of the liposculpting procedure you and Dr. Steinbrech decide to do.
