HD Liposuction 4 D – Lausanne

The “High Definition” liposuction or “4-D liposculpture” is the ultimate refinement of liposuction. The aim of this HD liposuction is to harmoniously highlight the muscles of the body in general at the level of the abdomen, chest and hips. High Definition Liposuction by PAL® is suitable for patients who exercise regularly, have good skin quality and a BMI of 27 kg/m2 or less. Only a few plastic surgeons in Switzerland offer this procedure and, above all, know how to perform it. A great deal of experience in both “classic” liposuction and “lipofilling” is required to perform this operation. The liposuctioned fat can be used in combined treatments to augment the breast, buttocks or certain muscle groups, for example.

General information

Many people go to the gym regularly and pay attention to a balanced diet, but often nothing seems to improve in the areas of the body where we would like to see muscles. It is precisely for these areas that High Definition Liposuction is the right treatment to shape a perfect body. This method specifically removes the areas of fat between the selected muscles. The PAL® method concentrates its effect primarily on the respective fat cells and spares the surrounding structures, such as nerve tracts, blood vessels and ligaments. This makes the appearance of the "six-pack" possible. In the same session, the fat can be reused and injected into other areas such as the buttocks or breasts. The reuse of body fat is called "lipofilling". Lipofilling is 100% free of foreign substances, which makes the effect very natural.

Before the procedure

During the first consultation for 4-D High Definition Liposuction, patients get to know us and can discuss their ideas, wishes and questions with us at their leisure. Since we have a lot of experience in the field of liposuction, we can answer all your questions in detail. We will make sure that 4-D High Definition Liposuction is a treatment that meets your expectations. High Definition Liposuction is suitable for patients who exercise regularly, have good skin quality and a BMI of 27 kg/m2 or less. During this consultation, we measure body weight, height, fat percentage and subcutaneous fat thickness. During the initial consultation, the areas to be treated are marked while standing and checked in front of a mirror. Smoking should ideally be stopped 3 weeks before and 3 weeks after liposuction. At the end of the session we will create a treatment plan tailored to your needs and expectations.

During the procedure

On the day of the procedure, we focus exclusively on you; no other patients are scheduled for the same surgical treatment. This gives us the time we need to perform your liposuction in peace. During the procedure, the atmosphere is very pleasant, the operating room is located in a calming place overlooking the rooftops of Lausanne. To achieve a harmonious and natural result, the problem areas are marked in an upright position with contraction of the muscles to be treated. In a lying position, the surgical area is disinfected and sterilely covered. A tumescent solution is then introduced into the marked areas through very small incisions - only 3 to 4 mm. It contains painkillers and medication to relieve further bruising. Suction is then applied using a high-resolution micro-suction cannula. Multiple checks are performed in the upright position to ensure optimal results. This procedure ensures that irregularities are avoided. For example, the abdomen looks completely different in the supine position than in the standing position. Small bumps are often only visible when standing. The duration of the procedure depends on the amount of fat to be removed and the type of anesthesia. A duration of two to four hours is common. The procedure can usually be performed on an outpatient basis. Between 1 and 4 liters of fat can be removed in one session. For health reasons, it is not recommended to remove more than 5 litres of fat per session during liposuction.

After the procedure

A special "Epifoam" dressing is placed on the areas where High Definition 4-D liposuction was performed. An initial dressing is applied one week after surgery. Immediately after the procedure, a compression sleeve is placed over the Epifoam dressing. It supports the skin's adjustment processes and must be worn day and night for three weeks, then only at night for another three weeks. Antibiotics are required for prophylaxis for seven days after HD4D liposuction. One week after liposuction, the treated area is often swollen and indurated. The swelling and induration will subside after 2 to 3 weeks and permanently after 3 to 6 months. To avoid irregularities and hardening in the treated areas due to soft tissue healing, lymphatic massage or LPG endermologie treatment is highly recommended one week after liposuction. A stable weight is an important measure to achieve an optimal final result. The fat cells removed during liposuction cannot grow back. Only in case of a strong weight gain, the remaining fat cells can increase in size. The final result can only be judged after a few weeks to 3 months after the procedure. If you have any questions, you can always contact us personally on our emergency number. Sports, sauna, full baths and sun/solarium should be avoided for the first 6 weeks. Small skin incisions should be protected with a sunscreen (SPF 50) for the next few months.

Risks and side effects

After High Definition 4-D liposuction, the sensitivity of the skin to touch may be slightly reduced. Bruising, redness and slight swelling occur regularly after the operation, but subside with time. Slight bumps and asymmetries are also possible. Because we perform regular checkups during surgery, the risk of a bump or asymmetry occurring after surgery is low. Infections, hematomas and necrosis are very rare after 4-D High Definition Liposuction.
