What Is SmartLipo ™?
As a leader in laser-assisted lipolysis, Dr. Berbari is the first cosmetic surgeon in her area to offer the SmartLipo procedure. Utilizing a blend of three laser wavelengths, the SmartLipo™ Triplex laser safely aids in the removal of excess fat deposits, while also tightening the patient's skin. Many patients have turned to SmartLipo™ for the removal of stubborn fat deposits in areas such as the neck, chest, abdomen, inner arms, inner thighs, and knees. Because of advancements in laser technology, SmartLipo™ offers a much quicker recovery period than traditional liposuction. In fact, many patients are able to return to work and resume daily activities just one to four days after their SmartLipo™ treatment.
The SmartLipo ™ Procedure
Before performing the SmartLipo™ procedure, Dr. Berbari will mark each targeted treatment area on the body for patient confirmation. Next, she will apply a local anesthetic and a tumescent fluid containing adrenaline to each treatment area. The use of local anesthetic ensures that the patient will have a comfortable experience, while still remaining conscious of their surroundings. Next, a fine laser cannula, or tube, will be placed under the skin through a small, strategically placed incision. The combined energy of the SmartLipo™ Triplex's three lasers effectively destroys fat cells within each targeted area, and aids in the production of new collagen fibers. Laser technology also helps coagulate blood vessels, resulting in minimal bruising, certainly much less than that of traditional liposuction. Finally, the laser-liquefied fat will be gently suctioned away with a special instrument. Any small incisions will be sutured or bandaged, and the patient can go home shortly after.
SmartLipo ™ Candidates
As with traditional liposuction, SmartLipo™ candidates should be in good overall health and should maintain an active lifestyle. The best candidates for SmartLipo™ are patients looking to remove stubborn areas of fat that have not responded to regular diet and exercise, but this treatment should not be used as a substitute for diet and exercise. SmartLipo™'s quick recovery period makes this procedure ideal for patients who cannot afford to take a lot of time away from work or regular activities. A consultation with Dr. Berbari is the best way to find out if SmartLipo™ will address your particular needs.
