LipoSculpt Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes FDA-approved SmartLipo or Vaser Lipo. SmartLipo is a microscopic laser, Vaser is Ultrasonic Energy. Either one can be used to liquefy fat, simultaneously coagulate blood vessels, and tighten skin. This major technological evolution allows minimal downtime with most patients returning to work in two days. A local anesthetic is used to provide a relaxed procedure with patients walking in and out. The cannula is inserted through a small incision in the skin usually along creases that conceal the scar. Our Liposuction procedures present smoother results with less swelling and bruising and nearly no blood loss than what occurs with traditional Liposuction.
Don’t be fooled by alternative treatments that claim visible results through “natural” or “noninvasive” procedures. Our iposuction procedure using Smartlipo or VaserLipo is the closest to noninvasive that is available today. The procedure is performed in the doctor’s office quickly, safely and allows for great results that are permanent.
Dr. Denzel has chosen LipoSculpt after studying the pros and cons of various methods of Liposuction. Here are some key points:
Patients typically return to work immediately, almost like a “lunchtime Liposuction”. Although we recommend a day or two of rest, you may return to your normal activity while avoiding vigorous exercise for two weeks. This is unlike traditional Liposuction procedures where a patient feels as if they were “run over by a truck.” Incisions are hidden and are so tiny that no stitches are needed, therefore no unsightly scars occur. Eventually, it would be very hard to find the insertion points or tell by looking at the skin that any Liposuction has ever been done. There is no in office recovery time, you’re awake and able to walk out with your friend or family member.
During our liposuction procedures, at most, you may experience a feeling similar to being pinched or poked. After the numbing has worn off, it may feel like the aches and pains that follow a strenuous workout and/or sunburn.
SmartLipo and Vaser Lipo is safer than traditional Liposuction procedures because with the new state of the art Laser technology, the tumescent technique has no IVs, no anesthetic drugs (besides local numbing) and virtually no blood loss, eliminating many of the risks associated with general anesthesia. The patient is awake and able to talk with the doctor and staff.
