The first line of treatment when it comes to improving body contour is diet and exercise. However, these measures often fail when it comes to localized deposits of fat in various areas of the body. For this, the ideal option is laser liposuction. This is a minimally invasive plastic surgery procedure that utilizes laser energy to resolve excess fat deposits, helping men and women achieve an attractive and more youthful-looking body contour. Laser liposuction surgery has proven effective to remove stubborn fat from the following areas:
Knees and hips
Chin and face
SmartLipo Triplex Laser Liposuction
Liposuction using laser energy is an advanced cosmetic surgery procedure that is gaining popularity because of its minimally invasive nature. This treatment is performed at reputable plastic surgery facilities utilizing the innovative SmartLipo Triplex workstation introduced by Cynosure. This procedure is unique because it works by combining the power of three lasers which allow precise targeting of the fat and effective tightening of the skin to result in a sleek, well-contoured physique. This workstation features a tiny cannula that combines three laser wavelengths – 1440, 1064 and 1320 nm in one output to melt the fat, and coagulate and tighten tissue.
The procedure requires only a small incision, through which the Smartlipo probe is inserted and directed at the fat. The cannula delivers laser energy to melt the fat deposits. The liquefied fat is then extracted through the same incision using a suction device, without causing much discomfort to the patient. Unlike conventional liposuction surgery, this technique involves minimal scarring. It stimulates the production of new collagen that promotes tissue coagulation and tightens the skin in the treated area.
This device also features advanced technologies such as SmartSense, ThermaGuide and ThermaView that accurately monitor the temperature and the amount of laser energy delivered in order to minimize tissue damage or other complications such as burns and hotspots due to excess heat. This ensures that excess energy is not transmitted, which could damage the surrounding tissues or lead to serious side effects. Incorporated with extended features and capabilities, the innovative SmartLipo Triplex laser lipolysis device makes it easier to perform abdominal laser etching and hi definition laser liposuction procedures.
The entire cosmetic surgery procedure is carried out under local anesthesia, which ensures patient safety. With minimal trauma and a short recovery period, patients can get back to normal activities a few days after the surgery. Individuals who close to their ideal body weight and healthy, but with excess fat in specific areas are good candidates for this procedure.
High-definition sculpting capabilities
Reduced treatment time and downtime
Less surgical trauma than conventional methods
Minimal bruises, bleeding and swelling
Minimal pain and discomfort
For maximum benefit from this laser liposuction procedure, it is crucial that it is performed under the supervision of an experienced plastic surgeon in an AAAASF- accredited plastic surgery practice. Such facilities are equipped with state-of-the-art modalities and ensure end-to-end treatment and care in a safe, private environment.
