Sometimes fat can be stubborn and can be difficult to remove with diet and exercise alone. No matter how strict your diet is or how regularly you work out, you may still struggle with lingering pockets of fat hiding your toned contour. Luckily, SmartLipo™ offers a solution, allowing you to remove that last bit of stubborn fat to improve your figure. Dr. Erella not only offers traditional liposuction but SmartLipo™ as well, with skin tightening benefits and a more comfortable recovery process. Here’s what you can expect from your experience with SmartLipo™:

 

The SmartLipo™ Procedure Process

To understand SmartLipo™, you’ll need to understand traditional liposuction first. This is a highly popular procedure, involving the use of a cannula to break up and remove stubborn fat cells. Liposuction can effectively target areas like the abdomen, hips, thighs, back, upper arms, buffalo hump and even smaller areas like under the chin. SmartLipo offers the same fat removal in the same areas, but with some added benefits!

 

Instead of using a cannula to break up stubborn fat cells, SmartLipo™ relies on laser energy to melt the fat. The cannula is still used to remove the destroyed fat; however, laser energy requires much less trauma on the body or the tissue, resulting in less bruising, less pain and lesser swelling for a more comfortable recovery process.

 

Laser-assisted liposuction like SmartLipo™ also offers skin tightening benefits by stimulating the collagen of the skin that traditional liposuction does not. If you struggle with stubborn fat SmartLipo™ might be an effective solution for you. This allows patients to receive optimal contouring improvements in one treatment.

 

Life after SmartLipo™

There is still some recovery after SmartLipo™, similar to traditional liposuction, however, many patients report a more comfortable process with less swelling, less pain and bruising. Once these side effects diminish, you can enjoy the slimming and tightening results of your procedure. Normal patients can usually resume activity after 3-4 days because it is also done under local anesthesia in the office as an outpatient procedure.

 

Once the stubborn fat is removed, to ensure long-lasting results, maintain a healthy status with diet and exercise. This is the best way to longevity with your results after SmartLipo™. You’ll want to avoid future weight gain to other areas. This can be done by following a strict diet and regular exercise routine.

 

Your SmartLipo™ Consultation

 The best way to ensure successful, safe and long-lasting results from your SmartLipo procedure is to choose an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Erella. During your SmartLipo™ consultation, Dr. Erella will discuss your concerns and determine if SmartLipo™, traditional liposuction, or other body contouring technique is right for you. To get started on your customized treatment plan, contact our office and schedule your consultation today.

Injectables are a great way to refresh your appearance and smooth out facial lines and wrinkles without the need for surgery. At Aspira Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, we are seeing an increase in the number of younger patients who want injectable treatments like Botox® and fillers in their 20s. Here are some of the reasons why early treatment might be beneficial:

Delaying Wrinkles with Earlier Treatments

Many of our younger patients hear about how neuromodulators like Botox® may delay the onset of wrinkles in the forehead and eye area. Because crow’s feet and smile lines are some of the most obvious wrinkles on the face, using Botox® is very appealing. Lines in the upper part of your face form because the muscle contractions pinch the skin, so the idea is that early Botox injections protect the skin from these wrinkle-inducing effects of facial expressions.

Boosting Collagen Before It Depletes 

Collagen volume loss is a natural part of the aging process and is partly responsible for the development of fine lines, and wrinkles. This loss of collagen and volume begins around your late 20’s and continues to decline as you age. With collagen and volume-boosting injectables like Juvederm®, patients can maintain their collagen and volume levels early on to prevent the development of wrinkles around the nose, mouth, lips, and chin. 

Determining Your Skin Age

Most people focus on a person’s chronological age when determining the right time to start injectable treatments, but skin age is a more important factor. Each person’s skin ages at a different pace based on lifestyle choices, sun exposure, genetics, and more. Some people in their late 20’s who avoid sunlight and do not smoke, for example, may have younger-looking skin than their peers who spend a great deal of time outdoors. As such, there really is no hard and fast rule for what chronological age someone should start Botox® or fillers.

At Aspira Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, we explain more than how injectables like Botox® and fillers work to reduce wrinkles. We describe how the treatment will affect your overall appearance.
