Laserlipo/ Liposculpture/ Fat Removal Surgery

How does Liposuction surgery work?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that involves changing body shapes through the removal of fat. The “old style” liposuction procedure works by inserting a narrow tube through a small incision into the affected area. The fat cells are broken up with a saline solution and removed through the tube. While this was a desirable procedure, it often left loose skin behind.

Smartlipo (Laserlipo)

Times have changed and now patients can take advantage of Smartlipo, a FDA approved laser that removes fat, and tightens the surrounding skin. This minimally invasive procedure can often be done under local anesthetic and is less invasive than traditional Liposuction. On the whole, our patients experience less pain, less swelling and minimal bruising. Depending on the patient, many return to work in two days (some return to work the next day). The laser melts fat cells, cauterizing blood vessels as it goes minimizing the bruising which translates into minimizing the discomfort afterward. The laser also is used to tighten the skin which is an advantage that no other fat removing procedure can offer. Of the patients that are done under local, many do not require narcotic pain medicine afterward. That is, they only require Tylenol. As you can see, Smartlipo offers many advantages to our patients that traditional methods cannot making traditional liposuction a thing of the past!

Liposuction results

Both men and women choose to have Smartlipo laser liposuction remove stubborn pockets of fat that are difficult to tone up even if your diet is healthy and you exercise regularly.  Not only is it immediately effective, the fact that the fat cells removed do not get replaced by your body, the results will be long-lasting as well. Smartlipo can target specific areas of the body for fat removal including outer and inner thighs, arms, knees, hips, stomach, buttocks, chin, waist and back. It is also highly effective in areas that traditional liposuction is not, such as the male chest. The end result is a smoother, more sculpted body.
