WHAT IS Smartlipo?
Liposuction is a popular plastic surgery procedure that reduces the amount of undesired and unappealing fat from your problem areas. It provides quick results for those who want a more toned figure but are not seeing outcomes with exercise and diet alone. Smartlipo is a laser lipolysis treatment that yields stunning results for those who wish to remove fat cells from their body but prefer a less invasive surgical option compared to standard liposuction. Utilizing the Smartlipo laser by Cynosure, a top developer of cosmetic laser and treatment systems, this treatment is designed to help you achieve a slimmer look for the neck, face, arms, stomach, waist, hips, and/or thighs. If innovative, nonsurgical liposuction techniques sound appealing to you, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Tamburrino and his team would be more than happy to discuss Smartlipo and the wonderful benefits that come with it. Get in touch with our Doylestown, PA office to learn if you're a candidate.
"After consultations with many plastic surgeons, Dr. Tamburino was by far the most knowledgeable and detailed. I’m so thankful I found him and I would recommend him over and over. Not to mention his staff is so welcoming and incredibly helpful. If you are thinking about a surgery/cosmetics this is the GUY to go to. Can’t say enough good things!"- M.M. / Google / Feb 05, 2021
"I was very reluctant to get a face/neck lift. I thought about it for a few years and it was seeing myself on video calls day after day that sealed the deal for me. I had heard from a friend that Dr. Tamburrino was an excellent plastic surgeon and decided that I would suck up the drive from South Jersey to Doylestown based on the recommendation. I am so glad I did! My neck and face have been restored to a much more youthful look and amazingly there are no tell tale signs of surgery. I feel a whole lot better about myself and my family and friends are very complimentary (and I think a few of them are now considering surgery for themselves). Dr. Tamburrino is a thorough , knowledgeable and accomplished surgeon who I put complete trust in and I'm forever glad I did!"- G.F. / Healthgrades / Jan 29, 2021
"The decision I made to put myself first and go see Dr. Tamburinno changed my life in the best way possible. I have never been more happy with myself and am grateful to him for being so knowledgeable and talented. From start to finish his staff is amazing and helpful beyond words ..... I have recommended him to many close friends and will continue to do so!! Lindsay Curtis"- L.C. / Google / Jan 29, 2021
"Dr. Tamburrino changed my life. After two failed breast implant surgeries after a double mastectomy, Dr. Tamburrino created beautiful breast and nipples that look amazing. He gave me back my life. I owe him everything and recommend him to anyone who needs reconstruction. And on top of that he has an amazing personality, I received amazing care. "- M.F. / Healthgrades / Jan 21, 2021
"Dr Tamburino is exactly who you hope for when faced with a difficult breast cancer surgery! He is a highly skilled surgeon, who is also caring and honest. He will tell you exactly what you need to know (though not always what you might want to hear) to get you through the long haul of surgery and reconstruction. I have had breast cancer with a bilateral mastectomy, chemo, radiation & expanders for reconstruction and have been going to Dr T for over a year. I feel now that he is the only plastic surgeon who was able to get me through my complicated journey. He always had my best interests at heart. I would recommend him to all my family and friends!"- M.D. / Google / Jan 08, 2021
WHO CAN GET SMARTLIPO?
Liposuction, laser or otherwise, is not a solution for weight loss. Although patients will see a noticeable reduction in the size of their problem areas that didn't respond well to exercise and diet changes, it's still important for individuals to not rely solely on the procedure for weight loss or weight maintenance. If you are healthy enough to undergo traditional liposuction, you are most likely an ideal candidate for Smartlipo as well. Those who may receive the longest-lasting results from Smartlipo are those who:
- Are in great health overall
- Remain within 25 pounds of their goal weight
- Have realistic ideas about the outcome of their surgery
- Eat a healthy diet and maintain an exercise routine
HOW DOES SMARTLIPO WORK?
Similar to traditional liposuction, Smartlipo requires the use of incisions and a fat suctioning device called a cannula. However, because the technology used is laser lipolysis, both the incisions and cannula are much smaller than those of a standard liposuction procedure. At the time of your treatment, Dr. Tamburrino will maneuver the handheld laser device underneath the skin and throughout the treatment area. As fat cells come into contact with the laser, they will begin to swell and liquefy. Dr. Tamburrino will then remove the liquefied fat cells with the cannula. The Smartlipo laser also is able to stimulate collagen production, which assists in tightening and toning the skin following your procedure.
What to Expect
Even though the Smartlipo surgery is minimally invasive, it will still need to be completed in a fully accredited surgical facility. The anesthesia used for your surgery will depend on the area being treated. Your procedure will last about an hour, depending on the size and number of regions being addressed. After surgery, you can expect to see some bruising and experience some discomfort and swelling. However, these symptoms are completely normal and will fade over the coming weeks. Your fullest results will be seen within about six weeks following surgery.
nonsurgical fat reduction
If you've made committed attempts to reduce fat in hard-to-fix spots (such as the lower tummy, hips, and thighs) to no avail, Smartlipo could be the answer you've been looking for. With Smartlipo, you can achieve the results you want without the downtime involved for a standard liposuction surgery. If you'd like to learn more about Smartlipo and the benefits that come with it, get in touch with Tamburrino Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Doylestown, PA and ask to speak to a member of our team.
