Liposuction – SmartLipo
The Strax Rejuvenation® Liposuction Procedures
|Liposuction involves the removal of unwanted fat with a cannula, a hollow metal tube which is passed through the fatty tissue, which is the more recognized approach routinely associated with the liposuction procedure itself. One of the most common techniques for liposuction involves the aspiration of fat by affixing a pump to the cannula and utilizing suction. Within the plastic surgery community this is known as Suction-Assisted Liposuction (SAL).||
What is the liposuction procedure?
The usage and application of laser-assisted techniques and other devices in plastic surgery has revolutionized many of the most in-demand procedures in the practice, and as a result, major breakthroughs have taken shape in liposuction. Florida residents are particularly receptive to the warm weather, remaining conscientious of their body and its aesthetic potential. Strax Rejuvenation® is the premier plastic surgery facility serving the greater Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade County area, and the board-certified surgeons are eager to reveal possibilities while making aesthetic goals a reality for patients who want to experience the best results available anywhere in Florida.
How do I know which liposuction procedure is right for me?
Your surgeon will assess and consult with you regarding which type of liposuction procedure is best for you. Many different factors, including height, weight, the amount of fat to be removed, the areas to be treated and any medical conditions which could influence your candidacy will be addressed. During your initial consultation, mutual goals will be determined, and the best means to achieve them will be taken into account.
When traditional weight loss methods fall short for battling stubborn fatty deposits, cosmetic surgery acts as an alternative to alleviate these concerns. Oftentimes unsightly fat deposits can develop in certain areas, despite daily exercise and dietary eating habits. The same can be said for loose, flabby, and drooping skin, which is unlikely to disappear without resorting to some form of liposuction treatment. With the introduction of the Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL) and SmartLipo® procedures, patients are able to consider solutions that are quicker, more affordable, highly effective, and have shorter recovery times with fewer side effects.
How does the Power-Assisted Liposuction procedure (PAL) work?
The Power-Assisted Liposuction Procedure (PAL) is the more common method in which our surgeons practice the conventional surgical removal of unwanted fatty deposits from the body. This technique involves the usage of the cannula, a hollow metal tube inserted through a small incision in the fatty tissue which is affixed with a vacuum to produce the suction necessary for the aspiration of unwanted fatty deposits. The PAL treatment differs from others due to the inclusion of specific devices upon the cannula which inspires a series of subtle vibrations on the instrument, easing the surgeon’s movement within the area of operation and further enhancing the volume of fatty deposits receptive to removal. This type of liposuction is also less invasive therefore minimizing swelling, bruising and ultimate downtime.
How does the SmartLipo® procedure work?
While the procedure ruptures fat cells, leading to drainage with zero harm, a simultaneous thickening of tissue occurs, resulting in natural collagen production and the eventual tightening of the skin. Less bleeding is the subsequent result, thus the higher likelihood of an expeditious recovery.
