No body is exactly like another, and no two patients have the exact same goals. That’s why, when it comes to liposuction, the professionals at Biz MedSpa in Fremont, California, offer you more than one option.
Donald Lee, DO, founder of Biz MedSpa, spends your consultation time listening carefully to your goals so that he knows which type of liposuction can help you reach them. Read below to find out whether you’d benefit more from Smartlipo™ laser liposuction by CynoSure® or LipoSelection ultrasonic liposuction.
If you’re looking to eliminate large fatty areas and trim inches from your figure, Dr. Lee recommends Smartlipo. SmartLipo uses the power of laser energy to liquefy and eliminate up to five total liters of fat from your:
After numbing the treatment area with a local anesthetic, Dr. Lee makes a small incision and then inserts a very narrow tube that contains the Smartlipo laser fiber. The fiber gently directs laser-powered heat at unwanted fat cells, melting the fat so that Dr. Lee can vacuum it away from your body using the same narrow tube.
The Smartlipo laser energy also initiates coagulation in your skin, so that it tightens over time. This feature eliminates the lumps and unevenness associated with traditional non-laser liposuction.
The entire Smartlipo procedure only takes about 90 minutes to 2 hours per area treated. You see the difference in your figure immediately after your Smartlipo treatment and you don’t need to come back for more sessions. With Smartlipo, you’re one-and-done.
You won’t have any stitches, but Dr. Lee may ask you to wear a compression garment for a few days after your treatment, to minimize swelling. You also may feel sore; in fact, you might feel like you just had an intense workout at the gym. Your figure continues to improve over the next several months as your swelling disappears and our skin tightens.
When you’re almost completely satisfied with the way you look, but would like to re-contour certain areas to make them smoother, tighter, and fat-free, Dr. Lee recommends ultrasonic LipoSelection. Instead of laser energy, LipoSelection harnesses the power of ultrasound waves to disrupt the structure of unwanted fat cells.
As with Smartlipo, Dr. Lee numbs the treatment area with a local anesthetic. He then inserts a rod that transmits sound waves to your fatty areas. Once the fat cells are liquefied, he removes them through a very narrow vacuum tube called a cannula.
With LipoSelection, Dr. Lee can make minute changes, such as removing just a small amount of fat under your chin or in your jowls, creating newer, tighter contours on your jawline. He can also finesse the shape of your knees or ankles, and improve other fatty areas so they look smooth and tight. You only need one treatment, will see your results immediately, and they improve over the next several months.
Once you get your ideal facial and body contours from liposuction, you need to maintain a stable weight for the best results. Although your new proportions will stay no matter what weight you are, your remaining fat cells will swell if you consume more calories than you burn. To keep that ideal liposuctioned figure, stay at your ideal, healthy weight.
