Women's Outer Thighs using SmartLipo MPX™

Are you satisfied with your weight, but troubled by persistent love handles, a pooch, or back fat? Does any amount of exercise to tone these areas not help? If this sounds like you, consider a targeted and effective solution - minimally invasive fat reduction. For people with small amounts of fat who want a more sculpted body shape, traditional liposuction is NOT necessary. Our Director, New York cosmetic surgeon our doctor is up to date with the latest advances in liposuction technologies, such as SmartLipo, Vaser, Liposonix and CoolSculpting. These types of treatments are designed to be a minimally invasive, offering less downtime, fewer complications, and great results.

SmartLipo is a laser assisted fat removal procedure that is precise enough to target even sensitive areas and remove unwanted fat while leaving surrounding tissue and blood vessels largely untouched. This is a great advancement from traditional liposuction, which could remove indiscriminately and lengthen the required recovery time. The SmartLipo MPX Laser system targets and breaks up fatty tissues before extraction. This much gentler approach allows for the use of only local anesthesia.

During a SmartLipo procedure, a local anesthetic solution will first be infused to the treatment areas. Although sedation is provided, there is no need for general anesthesia, which greatly reduces the risk of complications and also cuts down on recovery time. Then, tiny incisions are made in the target areas, and the small laser probes, about the size of a Q tip, are inserted. Our doctor will then use SmartLipo MPX to target and break up fatty tissue. The laser is specially calibrated to leave other tissues and blood vessels unharmed. The resulting unwanted fat is then carefully extracted from the body. The procedure generally takes about 45 minutes to a few hours, depending upon the areas being treated.

Following the procedure, patients can return home the same day, and return to work within one to two days. Light activity can be resumed within 3 days, and patients should be able to return to their full range of daily activities after a week. There may be some mild bruising, swelling, or redness in the treatment areas for up to a week, but these side effects are mild and should resolve themselves quickly. There is no need for stitches, as the tiny incisions will heal naturally, with very little risk of scarring. A compression garment will have to be worn for one to two weeks to help the healing process. Results will be immediate and permanent, as the fat is permanently destroyed and extracted. However, patients must maintain their weight with a diet and exercise regimen to prevent fat pockets from recurring in other unwanted areas.

Schedule a consultation with our doctor in his Manhattan office to learn more about minimally invasive fat removal procedures like SmartLipo. As a fat removal expert, he will be able to recommend you a suitable fat reduction procedure that will give you maximum body slimming results.
