In brief: Nope

Either you are "ripped" or you are not.
Diet, exercise and good genes (luck) make you ripped. Liposuction can reveal the fact that you are ripped, by removing disproportionate fat. No method of liposuction has been proven better than tumescent liposuction in the hands of a skilled surgeon. Pick you surgeon wisely, and let them pick the method that works best for them.

In brief: Higher risk

Trying to do lots of superficial liposuction to show every detail of the underlying muscles, is theoretically possible, but difficult, and more prone to complications.
The reason most weight lifters get that look is a combination of extreme muscle development and extreme dieting to very low body fat percentages. Although "high def vaser" lipo can create the illusion of more development....

....it's not really the same thing. When I do liposuction, I just try to get a nice smooth & even reduction in the fat layer. This is both safe & effective.

In brief: Liposcultpure

Liposculpture is exactly the same as liposuction, but some people associate liposculpture with more of a high-definition technique of liposuction.

In brief: Ripped abs

Getting the "ripped look" requires diet and aggressive exercises to develop the abdominal muscles and lose the subcutaneous fat over time.
Liposuction in some cases can help provide some definition but is not the answer for getting the 'look'.

In brief: Not appropriate

This is generally not an appropriate indication for liposuction.
It is intended for control of localized fatty deposits. Having said that, there are practitioners who perform "lipo etching" which is the techniques of creating exaggerated or cutaneous depressions that enhance or simulate the appearance of being ripped. Although appealing, weight fluctuations can result in a distorted appearance.
