Have you found yourself, at some point during your day, imagining what it would be like to have an athletic build? Dr. Shapiro is a world leader in precision body contouring– and can help this daydream become a reality with Hi--Definition Liposuction.
Hi-Definition Liposuction is a precision body contouring solution that can help you achieve a slimmer, more chiseled build.
It is a minimally-invasive liposuction procedure that uses ultrasound waves to break up select areas of fat without harming the surrounding tissues. It removes fatty deposits that encompass groups of muscles and smooths the skin’s surface – ultimately revealing a toned physique.
When compared to traditional fat reduction procedures, there are a number of benefits of Hi-Def Lipo for our Scottsdale clients. They include:
Because Hi-Definition Liposuction is a less traumatic procedure, patients experience minimal blood loss when compared to other options.
VASER removes superficial and deep fat, allowing Dr. Shapiro to sculpt athletic features, such as a six-pack abdomen.
With VASER, Dr. Shapiro can more easily remove unwanted fat, resulting in less pain and a quick recovery period.
The heating energy of the VASER procedure results in firmer skin, in addition to reduced fat.
Many of our Scottsdale clients are able to achieve their optimal body contouring results with just one VASER treatment.
VASER is powerful enough to remove large pockets of fat and gentle enough to treat your most delicate features – including the neck and arms.
Hi-Definition Liposuction can help contour many parts of the body for our Phoenix clients, including the:
Hi-Definition Liposuction was first performed in Bogota, Colombia in 2002 by Dr. Alfredo E. Hoyos. He developed the method to give his patients the athletic yet voluptuous curves they wanted – with a fast recovery and minimal downtime.
After learning about VASER during a lecture, Dr. Shapiro initiated a correspondence with Dr. Hoyos and was invited to train with him in Colombia. He then brought the VASER technique to his clients in Arizona. Today, he is one of 75 surgeons in the world to be trained in Hi-Definition Liposuction – and the only surgeon performing the procedure in the state of Arizona.
During your consultation appointment at our Paradise Valley office, you and our team will discuss if Hi-Definition Liposuction is the right solution for you.
Hi-Definition Liposuction can be done under general or local anesthesia. During the procedure, a small VASER probe will then deliver ultrasonic waves to break down fat cells without affecting or damaging nearby tissue. Once the fat is broken down, it will be gently removed through a small tube.
The length of the procedure will depend on the number of treatment areas and the amount of excess fat you need addressed. In general, it can last anywhere from one to several hours. You will need to rest at home for about 12 hours after the procedure, followed by two to three weeks of avoiding strenuous activities.

Dr. Shapiro and his Scottsdale staff can determine if Hi-Definition Liposuction is right for you during your initial consultation. In general, the best candidates:
In general, this procedure is for patients who are generally fit and healthy – but have problem areas and stubborn pockets of fat that prevent them from achieving the sculpted look they desire.
Hi-Definition Liposuction is an advanced body sculpting solution. As such, patients can expect defined, highly sculpted areas where excessive fat used to be prior to their procedure.
Many of our Phoenix patients in the past have been able to see defined abdominal etching, contoured upper arms, muscular-looking pectorals and other effectively sculpted areas.
It’s important to note that Hi-Definition Liposuction results are susceptible to future weight gain. As such, you will need to maintain a healthy diet and lifestyle after your procedure to preserve your new, contoured figure.
