A Slimmer and More Sculpted Physique with SmartLipo and Liposculpture
Liposculpture and SmartLipo are two of the most frequently requested liposuction techniques requested in the U.S. and at Dr. Lloyd Landsman’s New York plastic surgery practice. When performed by an experienced plastic surgeon, liposculpture and SmartLipo can successfully remove unwanted pockets of fat and in turn create a smoother and more sculptured physique.
Dr. Landsman has helped hundreds of patients remove fatty deposits from various body areas. He combines superb training and skill with the latest and most advanced technology in body contouring to produce long-lasting and natural-looking results.
What Areas Do Liposculpture and SmartLipo Address?
Liposculpture and SmartLipo are designed to improve body contour. They are not meant to be used as a weight loss tool. Ideal candidates are individuals who are near or a healthy weight and wish to improve body contour. Liposculpture and SmartLipo can be used to improve the shape and contour of the following body areas:
- Upper arms
- Axillary area next to the breast
Dr. Landsman meets with each patient to discuss his or her body contouring needs and goals. During the consultation, Dr. Landsman will ask the patient to identify problem areas with excess fatty tissue, as well as other aesthetic concerns they may have. The doctor will conduct a physical examination to evaluate the amount of excess fat and the elasticity of the skin. Depending on these factors, Dr. Landsman may recommend liposculpture or SmartLipo as a treatment option. He may also recommend combining liposuction with other skin excision procedures. Patients who have loose skin and weak or separated muscles on the abdomen may benefit from tummy tuck surgery along with appropriate liposuction
Liposculpture is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, under general anesthesia. During liposculpture, Dr. Landsman will create tiny, strategically placed incisions in the treatment areas. He will then remove excess fat cells using a thin tube (called a cannula) and gentle suction. Initial recovery from liposculpture can take anywhere from one to two weeks. Side effects can include bruising, swelling and tenderness in the treatment area(s). Patients should avoid vigorous activities, including exercise, until cleared by Dr. Landsman.
The results of liposculpture and SmartLipo are considered to be permanent. This is because once the fat cells are removed, they will not grow back. If a patient gains weight in the future, the results of the surgery will be jeopardized. Patients are advised to maintain their weight and more attractive contour through healthy diet and exercise.
