4 New Advanced Liposuction Treatments

Posted by admin in Liposuction

Liposuction has been one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for removing fat for decades. In fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reported that it was the 4th most popular cosmetic procedure in 2012, locking in over 200,000 procedures. Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by removing excess fat deposits, improving body contours and proportion. With the a new advanced liposuction technologies such as Liposculpture, SmartLipo, BodyJet, and Fat Dissolve, patients can get the results they want without the risks of cutting, general anesthesia and IVs associated with traditional liposuction.

 

Liposculpture

Is a less invasive procedure than traditional liposuction because smaller, more precise instruments are used. This creates little to no bleeding and bruising, which makes for a quicker recovery time. Liposculpture like other body sculpting procedures can be used to correct areas like the abdomen, waist, hips, thighs, buttocks, love handles, male breasts, knees, arms, face, jaw line, double chin and neck. The other benefits of Liposculpture is more precise body sculpting, avoiding damage to surrounding internal tissues and no general anesthesia or IV’s.

SmartLipo

This technique is similar to a traditional liposuction treatment however, it uses high powered lasers to break down the fat cells, as opposed to manually breaking them down. SmartLipo effectively treats the face, jawline, neck, arms, abdomen, bra bulges, male breasts and other areas of loose fat and skin. The greatest benefit of this option is you can see the results in just one treatment. Because this procedure is minimally invasive and requires no general anesthesia, there is very little downtime and the side effects are minimal. Patients may notice slight swelling, skin discoloration or lumpiness in the treated spots.

BodyJet

This procedure is also a non-surgical technique that uses superior pulsating water-assisted liposuction. The idea behind BodyJet is to gently loosen fat cells and remove them without damaging the fat cells, connective tissue and the surrounding blood vessels. It involves little to no pain or discomfort and minimal recovery and downtime allowing you to return to work the next day. Not to mention that multiple areas can be sculpted during a session with results that can be seen in days, not months.

Fat Dissolve

This an FDA approved procedure that is administered by multiple injections, delivered directly into the fatty tissue in order to dissolve the fat. The active ingredient, Deoxycholate, dissolves the fat and once the fat cells are broken down the body eliminates it through the lymph system over the course of several weeks. Fat Dissolve is particularly effective in treating the area under the chin, the jowls, the abdomen, love handles, back of the arms, thighs, saddlebags, knees, and wings (area on the back right beside the armpits). Due to the us of extremely small instruments, this treatment requires no anesthetic and no downtime.

 

There are very few plastic surgeons that have adopted these new treatment technologies. Patients love these procedures because they are performed under local anesthesia, which means you are awake, with little to no pain. Furthermore, these techniques provide improved contouring results with minimal swelling, blood loss, discomfort and the overall recovery time is significantly less.
