SmartLipo Triplex is a laser-assisted liposuction option featuring easier fat removal, faster recovery, and skin tightening benefits. This body contouring procedure utilizes laser energy to heat and liquefy unwanted fat cells that are suctioned out with a liposuction cannula. The high temperature triggers your body’s natural healing response, creating new elastin and collagen fibers for firmer skin. Our board-certified plastic surgeon offers SmartLipo at Landsman Plastic Surgery in Smithtown, New York.
What Areas Can SmartLipo Treat?
SmartLipo can treat the same areas as traditional liposuction, including:
- Back of the neck
- Flanks (Love Handles)
- Pubic mound
SmartLipo Ideal Candidates
People with localized fat pockets resistant to diet and exercise can qualify for SmartLipo with Dr. Landsman. However, you must be close to your ideal weight and in good general health. Having realistic expectations is crucial because SmartLipo is not a weight loss solution but a tool to help you eliminate stubborn fat for a sculpted, smoother body contour. Dr. Landsman can discuss your eligibility during your consultation at our Smithtown office.
SmartLipo Vs. Traditional Liposuction
SmartLipo and traditional (tumescent) liposuction both permanently eliminate fat cells for a slimmer body shape. However, SmartLipo’s use of laser energy to soften and melt the fat is an improvement over the conventional procedure in several respects:
- It leads to less bruising and bleeding than traditional liposuction because one of the laser wavelengths targets small blood vessels and instigates coagulation.
- It liquefies the fat and pulls the cells away from surrounding structures, reducing trauma to the tissues. That leads to a shorter recovery and less pain than traditional liposuction.
- Local anesthesia can be used with SmartLipo procedures instead of general anesthesia, reducing risks for the patient.
- SmartLipo improves the appearance of loose skin, stretch marks, and cellulite with thermal energy emitted from the laser fiber to promote collagen production.
One potential downside to SmartLipo is that the fat cells can’t be repurposed for Brazilian butt lift or fat transfer breast augmentation. Fat transfer procedures require intact fatty tissues, and SmartLipo destroys fat cells.
