TriDef® Liposculpting

Remove. Retighten. Restore.

Some people can achieve their desired body results through proper diet and exercise. However, for most, achieving a toned or highly defined physique may be out of reach despite their best efforts to maintain a healthy lifestyle. While traditional liposuction is an effective way to remove stubborn pockets of fat, it does little to restore those defining lines in areas of the body and shadows that are apparent when someone is in optimal physical shape.

Not content with a one-size-fits-all solution to body contouring, Dr. Josef Hadeed now offers TriDef® Liposculpting, a revolutionary approach to achieving the high-definition lines and contours you desire. Dr. Hadeed utilizes a 3-step process to break up and remove stubborn fat deposits while tightening the surrounding skin to gain a youthful appearance. The final step, fat grafting, accentuates your results even further.

TriDef® Liposculpting is the newest technique in the evolution of high-definition liposuction and can help you achieve the toned, sculpted result you are looking for.

What TriDef® Liposculpting Can Achieve

Refined Contours

Liposuction, skin tightening, and fat transfer can put the finishing touches on a patient’s figure, focusing on highlighting muscle definition nearly anywhere on their body. This procedure eliminates fat, tightens skin, and accentuates muscle and curves to create sleeker, more visible body contours.

Customized Results

Patients who choose TriDef® Liposculpting can customize the procedure to target specific areas of their body. Fat in parts of the body that are resistant to diet and exercise can not only be eliminated, but the skin around the site can be tightened, and the fat transferred to another area of the patient’s body that needs a boost in volume.

Renewed Confidence

Patients who have worked diligently to slim and tone their physique still may feel insecure about gaining weight or extra pockets of stubborn fat that refuse to budge. TriDef® Liposculpting can give them a slender and more defined figure, improving their self-esteem and restoring their confidence in their achievements.

During your consultation in Beverly Hills, Dr. Hadeed will help you choose the options that will give you the best results for your body.

What Is TriDef® Liposculpting?

TriDef® Liposculpting is a specialized high-definition body contouring procedure that utilizes three different body sculpting methods to help you achieve your ideal shape.


Dr. Hadeed employs two different methods of liposuction when performing high-definition liposculpting. He first utilizes VASER liposuction, which is a method that uses ultrasound technology to break apart fat cells and dislodge them from surrounding tissues so they’re easier to remove. While other types of liposuction use water or laser liposuction to loosen fat for removal before suctioning it away, VASER lipo uses powerful sound waves. The ultrasound waves also produce heat that softens the fat cells, allowing for easier extraction of unwanted fat cells while providing minimal skin tightening.

VASER liposuction is quickly becoming a popular body-sculpting method because it allows for more detailed contouring, resulting in smooth definition along nearly any curve of your body, large or small. Best of all, VASER high-definition liposuction is a gentler method of fat removal than a traditional liposuction procedure, meaning that you experience less discomfort, less blood loss, and shorter healing times.

After the VASER liposuction is performed, power-assisted liposuction utilizing metal cannulas is used to remove the fat cells that were dislodged. The fat that is retrieved goes to a specific collection container, where it will eventually be separated from the rest of the aspirate. During this step of the procedure, specialized curved cannulas are employed to etch in the lines and shadows that result in a toned, defined look.

Skin Tightening

Renuvion® is a minimally-invasive skin tightening tool that utilizes two types of energy: radiofrequency energy (RF) and cold helium plasma. When used for skin retightening, radiofrequency energy works by heating the tissues under the surface of the area selected for tightening. By heating those underlying tissues, RF energy prompts the skin to tighten and contract, inducing your body to produce more collagen. The boost in collagen helps extend the results of your treatment, as it naturally firms and smooths your skin.

The helium plasma element of the instrument is used to cool the area during your procedure. The helium plasma works simultaneously to cool the treatment area, which allows the device to heat the targeted tissues to a higher temperature than other radiofrequency treatments. This combination of RF energy and helium plasma results in maximum skin contraction and a much more noticeable change in your body contour. Renuvion® offers precise, controlled contouring of smaller areas and can drastically reduce sagging skin in more substantial locations.

Fat Transfer

Fat transfer (also known as fat grafting) has gained popularity over the past few years as patients have discovered the benefits of using their own fat to enhance other areas of their bodies. One of the most popular procedures that utilizes autologous fat transfer is the Brazilian Butt Lift; however, it can also be used to replace lost volume in the breasts, face, and even hands.

Fat transfer works by taking the fat extracted during liposuction and separating it from the rest of the fluids and blood that were aspirated. The fat is then sterilely washed and processed to separate any damaged fat cells, impurities, or excess fluid, leaving you with clean and healthy fat cells ready to be transferred. The extracted fat is then strategically injected into the areas selected for augmentation to shape and define your body in all the right places.

How Much Fat Weight Can Be Removed by Liposuction?

How TriDef® Liposculpting Is Performed

Removal of Fat

During the first step of the TriDef® process, Dr. Hadeed makes small incisions in inconspicuous areas. He then uses VASER liposuction to ultrasonically break up the denser and firmer fatty tissue, dislodging it from surrounding tissues. The ultrasonic energy emulsifies the fat, which makes it easier to remove. Next, he removes unwanted fat from the desired treatment areas using a cannula and power-assisted liposuction. It is during this step that the lines and shadows on the body are created.

Retightening of Skin

After removing the fat, Dr. Hadeed utilizes Renuvion® technology to contract and tighten the excess skin itself. A small probe is placed underneath the skin using the same incisions used for the liposuction portion of the procedure. The probe heats the skin from underneath the surface, causing the skin to contract instantly. This tightening of the skin results in a firmer, more toned look.

Restoration of Volume

In the final stage, fat transfer to targeted areas of the body is performed to restore shape and augment the surgical results. Dr. Hadeed utilizes ultrasound technology to precisely place the purified fat where it is most needed to restore volume. In men, this is typically in the major muscle groups of the body, whereas in women, the breasts, hips, and buttocks are targeted. The end result is enhanced visibility and definition of the muscles or improved contour and curves, along with the accompanying shadows and lines that indicate someone is toned, defined, and in shape.

TriDef® Liposculpting Recovery

After liposuction, you will be placed into a compression garment, which will help reduce bruising, swelling, and pain. The garment also helps to create a smooth shape and promotes healing. Certain areas of your body may also be padded with foam for further protection. Lymphatic massage therapy is instituted the day after the procedure and typically lasts for ten days. Patients should refrain from applying pressure to the area where the fat injection was administered.

Dr. Hadeed will go over the details specific to your TriDef® Liposculpting recovery, which will be based on the location of the area where your fat was harvested. After liposuction, you typically need to rest, maintain good health, and recover at home for at least a week, avoiding strenuous activities. You will likely be able to return to work around a week after your procedure and back to gentle exercise after six weeks. Again, each patient will have unique requirements and limitations, which Dr. Hadeed will address with you.

TriDef® Liposculpting Results

You’ll likely notice your TriDef® Liposculpting results in stages. You’ll see smoother, tighter skin immediately after your procedure, and your skin will continue to increase in firmness and tone until your full results are visible at 6–9 months.

The results of the fat transfer portion of TriDef® Liposculpting are typically visible about one week after the fat transfer procedure itself. While you may experience a bit of volume loss initially as the grafted fat settles in, you’ll be able to see your final results after a couple of months.

The liposuction procedure typically results in swelling, making it difficult to see your results initially. Depending on the location of your liposuction, you’ll wear a compression garment to help reduce the swelling and shape the treated area. Most patients see their final results in 6–9 months.

    Some side effects of TriDef® Liposculpting may include:

    Swelling may persist intermittently for a few months, but this is normal and will subside on its own.

  • Are there any risks with TriDef® Liposculpture?

    While TriDef® Liposculpting is a gentler way to contour your body than other liposuction methods, as with any surgical process, there are always potential risks.

    Some complications may include:

    • Fluid accumulation under the skin (seroma)
    • Infection
    • Cysts
    • Necrosis (death) of transferred fat cells
    • The possibility that some of the grafted fat cells will migrate from the injected area
  • Is TriDef® Liposculpting an effective method of weight loss?

    TriDef® Liposculpting is a tool for shaping and contouring your own body and removing stubborn fat deposits that won’t respond to diet and exercise. It is not a method for losing a significant amount of weight.

    To avoid as many complications as possible from plastic surgery, ensure you see a board-certified plastic surgeon trained and experienced in the procedure you’re undergoing.

  • Does TriDef® Liposculpting leave scars?

    Liposuction is commonly performed using small incisions, which are typically placed in inconspicuous areas, resulting in very minimal visible scarring.
