SmartLipo Triplex™ in Virginia Beach
What is SmartLipo™?
Liposuction has steadily evolved over the past 30 years as surgical techniques have improved. Smaller suction tubes are used, and more fat can be safely removed. Bruising, swelling and recovery time have been reduced by the infiltration of super wet or tumescent fluid. Better contours and results can be achieved due to the introduction of new technologies.
SmartLipo Triplex™, available in Virginia Beach, is the most advanced laser-assisted lipolysis system available. It uses laser energy to facilitate the removal of fat cells and enhance tissue tightening. It can also produce substantially less bruising and swelling than traditional liposuction, as well as reduced recovery time.
Conventional liposuction can leave behind loose skin. The SmartLipo™ system is applied during the liposuction procedure to reduce the tendency to sag. A tiny laser wand (cannula) about the size of the tip of a pen is inserted under the skin through the liposuction incisions. The laser delivers energy directly to the fat cells through the cannula, causing them to break up. The liquefied fat is then gently suctioned out. New collagen is produced, resulting in tissue tightening.
Most patients undergoing liposuction will benefit from the use of the SmartLipo Triplex™ laser system during the procedure in order to promote skin and tissue tightening.
