Hi-Definition Liposculpture is a 360 degree “4D” liposculpting procedure, using a multitude of devices and technologies as well as comprehensive postoperative care regimen to deliver a dramatic transformation. Hi-Definition Liposculpture will give patients a more athletic appearance by sculpting a more defined abdomen, tighter waist, toned arms, and in men an athletic chest.
In addition to training at the world class institutions of Johns Hopkins and UCLA, Dr. Galanis also traveled to South America where he worked alongside and learned from Dr. Alfredo Hoyos, the inventor and pioneer of hi-def liposculpture. During his time in Colombia, Dr. Galanis refined his technique to bring world class total body sculpting techniques back to Beverly Hills, CA.
