WHAT IS LASER AND POWER-ASSISTED LIPOSUCTION WITH SMARTLIPO?
Laser and power-assisted liposuction is the most modern and state of the art solution in addressing local fat and cellulite. It is a minimally invasive surgical procedure with local anesthesia that takes place in-clinic. It has uniquely remarkable results and responds to any kind of localized accumulation of fat or cellulite.
The pre-operative procedure is fairly simple and brief and the liposuction procedure takes place in a fully-equipped and fully-antiseptic room.
HOW IS THE LIPOSUCTION WITH SMARTLIPO OPERATED?
To begin, small incisions (of 1-2 mm. at most) are made in the least detectable spots of the patient’s body. The surgeon then injects the local anesthesia at the fat issue body area with the use of a specialized infiltration cannula to achieve complete numbness of the chosen area. Our local anesthesia method is the most modern and effective one, always in favor of the patient’s lack of discomfort (xylocaine, adrenaline and sodium bicarbonate dissolved in saline//Klein’s solution). Next follows a fiber optic insertion through the incision to initiate the lipolysis procedure and fat liquefaction. Applying the right amount of energy (Joule) we can achieve a significant increase in temperature which leads to fat cell membrane collapse and liquefaction. At the same time, the Laser performs the hemostasis.
WHAT CAN WE ACHIEVE WITH THE LASER AND LIPOLYSIS PROCEDURE?
- Liquefy the subcutaneous fat tissue and then dispose of it.
- Eliminate fat depots.
- The Laser stimulates the secretion of collagen and elastin resulting in simultaneous tightening of the body area we work with.
- The Laser eliminates the fibrous elements and pigments of the area, which are responsible for the existence of cellulite and the so-called “orange peel” effect.
These remarkable achievements make Laser liposuction unique.
What comes next is the pre-tunneling technique with the use of a special basket cannula and then the power-asissted suction and disposal of liquefied subcutaneous fat tissue, without injuring the underlying tissues, in a negative pressure container. The amount of fat excreted is about 70% to 80% of the total, while the remaining 20% to 30% is absorbed and excreted by the body’s physiological mechanisms. Before the end of the surgical procedure, an equalization technique is used to achieve evenness in the result. Lastly, the surgeon takes care of the small incisions and massages the area.
The patient will then have to wear an elastic corset for a small period of time and will soon return to his everyday life without limitations.
WHY CHOOSE LIPOSUCTION WITH SMARTLIPO?
The result is immediately visible and is completed within weeks or months, as it also depends on other factors such as the patient’s metabolism, diet, exercise and lifestyle.
With this method we can achieve exceptional and impressive results, by highly specialized surgeons, licensed in Laser and Power-Assisted Liposuction and Liposculpture.
The benefits of this method are plenty and are recapped below:
- Use of local anesthesia taking place in-clinic
- Shorter recovery time
- Immediate return to everyday life
- No tissue damage and traumas – taking care of surrounding tissues
- Treatment of difficult and demanding cases (double jaw, calves, reoperations)
- No marks and scars – Incisions of mm. without stitching
- Simultaneous tightening of area thanks to Laser application (stimulation of collagen and elastin secretion)
- Impressive results at combating cellulite (improving the texture of the area)
- No pain
The result of Laser liposuction can be further perfected, making the end result even greater with an immediate or later placement of either PDO threads in a grid form or COG suspension threads of polylactic acid that cause an immediate lifting effect. What’s more, it can be combined with the application of liposuction or anti-cellulite cocktails, making the end result unique.
This is a completely safe method, which contributes to achieving excellent and impressive results in addressing problems of local fat and cellulite and is by far the most appropriate solution.
WHY COMBINING LIPOSUCTION WITH FAT TRANSFER?
Fat transfer is the process of taking fat from one area of the body and injecting it into another, in order to contour the body into a more desirable shape. Liposuction and fat transfer are two different procedures, performed on the same day.
First the laser and power assisted liposuction is performed. After that, the fat gets washed and filtered, before being transferred into the desired location.
A transfer can rejuvenate almost any area of the body that has lost volume over time.
WHAT ARE THE TARGET AREAS FOR A FAT TRANSFER?
The transferred fat can rejuvenate facial skin by giving patients more volume to deflated skin, with natural looking results.
Hands is a common area in which the signs of age become obvious over the time. The skin on the back of the hands becomes thinner. The fat can help restore loss of volume in the most natural way and give a person’s hands a more youthful appearance.
- Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation with fat transfer can improve breast deformities that have occurred due to biopsies or balance out asymmetrical breasts.
- Brazilian Butt Lift
The fat is removed from an area of the body via a particular technique is implanted into the buttocks. This increases the size and makes them firmer and rounder.
