If you’re considering highly effective alternatives from traditional liposuction, SmartLipo might be the procedure for you. With SmartLipo, a laser is utilized to liquefy fat cells where excess fat deposits reside. Some common trouble areas include “love handles,” “muffin tops,” “saddle bags,” “bat wings” and even jowls.
SmartLipo features the latest in laser-assisted lipolysis by delivering the ideal blend of two wavelengths to effectively pulverize fat cells while tightening the skin, all in one quick and safe procedure. While the laser does its job, a tiny incision, no bigger than the tip of a pen, is made to gently suction out the liquefied fat. The VASER uses internal ultrasound to also emulsify fat and tighten skin. Over the past several years, Dr. Joshua Korman has had experience working with both SmartLipo and VASER and found them to be best when used together.
Dr. Korman is one of the few plastic surgeons who have both machines to provide ultimate results for patients. Usually only one treatment of SmartLipo is required yet improvement in the treated areas can be ongoing for up to 3 to 6 months following.
