Liposuction & SmartLipo™
Sometimes, all the diet and exercise in the world can still leave you with parts of your body that hold too much fat. If so, liposuction might be your solution.
The average weight difference from a liposuction procedure is no more than 10 pounds – it's more of a contouring method that can help the look of the following areas:
• Abdominal area
• Back of the arms
• Male breasts
However, even with the small amount of weight that is actually lost, your appearance can be dramatically improved.
When you come in for a liposuction consultation, we'll determine if you're a candidate for the procedure – factors include your level of fitness, your previous methods of weight loss and whether or not you're a smoker. We'll also advise the type of liposuction that's right for your desired results:
• Microannula liposuction
• Power–assisted liposuction
Lipo-sculpting, the art of strategically removing unwanted fat from trouble areas on the body, continues to grow in popularity as more women and men want to look and feel better about themselves. Body contouring and lipo-sculpture still remain the most popular cosmetic surgery performed today.
SmartLipo™ is the first laser lipolysis system which utilizes a very small tube, approximately 2mm in diameter, containing a laser fiber which is inserted under the skin. This thin tube is gently moved through the unwanted fat delivering the laser's energy directly to fat cells causing them to break apart and drain away. The laser energy also stimulates the collagen in the skin to cause some tightening. SmartLipo™ is minimally invasive and is performed under local anesthesia. The laser causes blood vessels to coagulate immediately resulting in less bleeding, swelling, and bruising.
Liposuction is most often used for cosmetic purposes, to give a smoother shape to areas such as the abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, calves, arms or back -- areas that haven't responded to diet and exercise. It can also be used to reduce the size of male "breasts" or to remove fat tumors (lipomas or abnormal fatty deposits). Fat can be removed from more than one part of the body during a single surgical procedure.
