SmartLipo Triplex® LaserBody Sculpting

SmartLipo Triplex® Laser Body Sculpting offers an exciting alternative to traditional liposuction. SmartLipo Triplex utilizes a triple wavelength laser to dissolve fat cells that are then gently removed by a small suction cannula.

Benefits of SmartLipo Triplex® Include:
  • SmartLipo Triplex® is a laser -assisted procedure that liquefies and removes fat permanently and offers less down time and fewer side effects than traditional liposuction
  • Patients experience fewer complications than with traditional liposuction and are able to return to their daily activities much more quickly
  • Unlike traditional liposuction, SmartLipo Triplex® has the added benefit of tightening the skin. This is good for treating areas such as neck, chin and inner arms more simply and effectively than was formerly possible
  • Often requires only local anesthesia, is performed on an outpatient basis, and is a very safe, FDA approved treatment option
  • SmartLipo Triplex® can be used in conjunction with Body-Jet® - Water Assisted Liposuction, as well as other cosmetic surgery procedures where the extra benefit of skin tightening is desired
  • Offers three separate wavelengths of laser to allow for sculpting a "six-pack" in men and a more defined waist for women
  • SmartLipo Triplex® is the only laser liposuction technique that offers Thermaguide® ensuring there is never unintended overheating of the skin

Body-Jet® Water-Assisted Liposuction

Body-Jet® (water- assisted liposuction) is one of the latest, FDA approved methods of liposuction.  Body-Jet® is not a laser, but uses a gentle pulsating stream of saline water to dislodge fat cells while simultaneously removing them from the body through a small cannula.

Benefits of Body-Jet® Water-Assisted Liposuction Include:
  • Gentle procedure that provides much less bruising and swelling than traditional liposuction
  • Offers rapid recovery and is often performed under local anesthesia
  • May be beneficial for patients who require a bit more fat removal than those who are SmartLipo Triplex® candidates.
  • The gentle nature of removing the fat cells keeps the cells intact enabling them to be harvested as an excellent all -natural, long-lasting filler for the face, hands or body
  • May be used in conjunction with SmartLipo Triplex® when added skin tightening is desired, or with other surgical procedures where added contour is desired
  • Provides permanent fat-cell removal; fat cells do not grow back
  • Body-Jet® is a gentle, safe and effective alternative to traditional liposuction

CoolSculpting by Zeltiq™

CoolSculpting by Zeltiq™ is the only FDA approved, safe and effective, non-surgical technique for permanently reducing small areas of unwanted fat. This in office procedure takes about 1-2 hours to perform. Zeltiq™ utilizes Cryolipolysis®  to freeze the fat cells, that are later absorbed and eliminated naturally through the body. Results are fully realized 2-3 months after treatment.

Benefits of Cool Sculpting Include:
  • Innovative, FDA approved, safe and effective, non-surgical technique for permanently removing small areas of fat
  • Zero downtime; you may return to work or vigorous exercise immediately following the treatment
  • No anesthesia, no needles or surgery required
  • Privacy and comfort of in-office procedure that allows you to read, watch a movie, nap or work on lap-top during the treatment session
  • Excellent technique for those with "love handles", small "muffin-top" or "bra fat" and those who are not candidates for surgery
  • May be used after SmartLipo Triplex® or Body-Jet® to enhance results
  • May be performed in one or several two- hour treatment sessions
  • Studies report 20-25% percent reduction of fat cells in treated areas
  • Fat cells are removed permanently and do not return

Before & After Photos

The nature of aesthetic surgery, particularly procedures that influence facial appearance, is immensely private. For the privacy of all my patients, I elect not to share my patient photographs and surgical outcomes in the very public environment of the internet. Photographs are an important tool that will be available to you during your consultation to help you see and understand the quality of my surgical skill and the outcomes I have achieved for some of my patients. All photographs you will see during your consultation are my personal patients, who have given specific consent for photograph use for educational purposes.
