Laser-assisted lipolysis is a medical procedure that eliminates large areas of fat using lasers. It’s minimally invasive because it requires a small incision and local anesthesia. A thin tube containing the laser is inserted through the incision and into the targeted area of fat. The laser heats up fat cells, causing them to break down and turn into an oily substance that can be naturally absorbed by the body or suctioned out.
The Smartlipo Triplex is an advanced device that can be adjusted to 3 wavelengths. Each wavelength achieves a different effect, which is used to customize the treatment for the patient, depending on the amount of fat being removed. The Smartlipo Triplex can be used to contour your neck, abdomen, arms, back, buttocks, hips, and thighs.
PrecisionTX™ is a laser device specifically designed to tighten skin and improve the contour of your neck, jawline, and lower cheeks. The procedure is minimally invasive, and uses a small incision to insert a small tube. Then, controlled lasers tighten tissues and stimulate the production of new collagen. As fresh collagen grows in over the next 3-6 months, skin in the area gets stronger and tighter.
This treatment works best for people who only have a mild amount of fat and loose skin in the lower face, jowls, and neck. After the procedure, you’ll need to wear a facial compression garment, but most patients get back to their normal activities in a couple days.
Body contouring can be accomplished using a variety of different medical devices — some remove fat, others tighten and tone skin, and some devices do both. Navigating the many different procedures and whether they’d work for you can be quite overwhelming, especially if you sort through the vast amount of sometimes conflicting information on the internet.
Dr. Lebowitz helps you sort through all the options. Using his medical expertise and experience performing cosmetic procedures, he determines which option is the best for your health. He also listens carefully to your contouring goals, because your expectations may not be met with all devices. After considering all the information, Dr. Lebowitz works with you to develop a treatment plan designed to achieve success.
