HD Lipo (High-Definition Liposculpture) in San Diego

Discover a new, lasting option to get that beautifully sculpted look.

Most people associate liposuction with fat reduction. But to leave it at that leaves out the true power of this popular procedure. Expertly performed liposuction is as much about sculpting as it is about removing fat. At La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa, our plastic surgeons have always understood this fact. That’s why we’re excited that HD Lipo, or hi-definition liposculpture with PAL® is available at LJC!

We were the first plastic surgery practice in California offering this advanced HD Lipo technique.

Our San Diego HD Lipo specialist, Dr. Hector Salazar-Reyes, is one of a very limited number of plastic surgeons in the United States who have been extensively trained in the MicroAire high-definition liposculpture technique. Dr. Salazar was invited to train with one of the world’s most revered liposculpture experts, Dr. Ahmad Saad, at his practice in Barcelona, Spain. We’re thrilled that Dr. Salazar has brought this advanced technique to our practice—and so are our body contouring patients!

Considering Hi-Def Lipo in San Diego? Here’s How It Works

With HD Lipo, Dr. Salazar can help you get the shape you’ve been visualizing but can’t seem to fully achieve with diet and exercise. He performs HD Lipo as a two-step procedure:

  • Power-assisted liposuction (PAL) to remove unwanted fat, both achieving a base level of contouring and leaving the treated area(s) leaner throughout.
  • HD Lipo to sculpt the abs, chest, back, arms, legs, and other areas. Because Dr. Salazar has already removed baseline fat with PAL, he can focus on sculpting in incredible detail, following the natural lines of your musculature.
For MenFor Women
  • Reveal a hard-earned “six pack” with abdominal etching
  • Enhance definition in the shoulders, delts, and biceps
  • Sculpt the chest to achieve more defined, masculine pecs
  • And much more!
  • Sculpt a beautiful shape to the shoulders and upper arms
  • Contour the waist and hips to define the abs or enhance an hourglass shape
  • Sculpt around the lower back and thighs to accentuate the buttocks
  • And much more!

Faster Recovery, Faster Results

Power assisted liposuction is easier on you, plain and simple. The powered instruments loosen fat gently and precisely, allowing the surgeon to sculpt with great precision and ease and with minimal damage to surrounding tissues. Compared to older liposuction technology, PAL also results in less post-operative swelling and bruising, less pain and soreness after surgery, and a quicker return to your normal lifestyle. You’ll enjoy your full results sooner, too. Dr. Luke Swistun also uses PAL to create stunning 360 Lipo results.
