Arian Mowlavi M.D. has dedicated his career to advancing the art of high-definition body contouring. High-definition body contouring was coined to describe the highest level of cosmetic surgery that demands three specific milestones.

1. 360-degree body contouring predicated on circumferential sculpting. Circumferential sculpting ensures contour improvements are appreciated from all viewed angles. It is essential to recognize that the human body is a three-dimensional organism that must be evaluated and treated as if it is a glorified statue.

2. Consideration of all tissue planes. Cosmetic and plastic surgeons focus on the alteration of soft tissues that encompass your overall appearance. The soft tissues include all malleable elements that cover your bones and include (from deep to superficial): the muscle, muscle lining, deep fat, the fascial layer, the superficial fat, and the skin.

Strategic alteration of these tissue planes requires consideration of novel protocols and advanced state-of-the-art surgical tools. Furthermore, by recognizing all tissue planes, a comprehensive and accurate surgical plan is devised that will optimally improve your body contours.

3. An artistic approach. This consideration reinforces the fusion of science and art that dictates that your surgeon performs like a sculptor. The artistic approach requires unique sculpting techniques to unveil muscle highlights and natural shadows. This detail in sculpting manifests into dramatic yet realistic contour aesthetics. A final criterion requires remaining true to gender-specific aesthetics. For example, women strive for exaggerated curves in their contour lines with smooth transitions. Creating this hourglass silhouette that is predicated on the juxtaposition of a rounded buttock and full bust contrasted against a narrowed waistline. In contrast, men should possess linear lines with sharp transitions such as a pentagonal, bold, yet flat chest or straining lower back and flank and abdominal contour lines juxtaposed against a squared-off buttock. By eliminating the love handle prominence and establishing a strong upper outer buttock, a shelf is created for men to hang their jeans on.

High-definition contouring in cosmetic surgery spans all body parts, including the face, breast, abdomen, back, buttocks, and even the limbs. Dr. Arian Mowlavi is considered a pioneer in high-definition contouring and authored textbooks, published countless articles, established protocols, lectured at national meetings, and trained surgeons internationally.

Dr. Arian Mowlavi has participated as a VASER HD Liposuction trainer. Additionally, he has performed over 10,000 procedures and published over 50 peer-reviewed journal articles and chapters in the field of cosmetic and plastic surgery. He has received numerous awards and is regarded as a pioneer by plastic and cosmetic surgeons.
