SmartLipo™ is the first laser approved by the FDA to be used for fat dissolution and removal with tumescent liposuction. Introduced in 2007, this laser technology utilizes a 1064 wave length that targets red blood cells and thus results in less blood loss. In addition it produces a burst of energy as it enters the fatty tissue that dissolves the fat so it can be removed by suctioning. This improves the safety of the procedure by being able to melt the fat without heating the tissue excessively. Smaller areas of melted fat can actually reabsorb into the body and may not even need suctioning for optimal results.
During this in-office procedure, a tiny incision is made in the skin where the laser is inserted to destroy the fat cells. An oily liquid substance, which resides in the fat cells, is removed through the incision. The laser used in this procedure also seals blood vessels as it destroys the fat cells. By doing so, there are significantly less side effects, such as swelling, bleeding and bruising resulting in superior results with less trauma and downtime.
SmartLipo™ allows the surgeon to work closely under the skin for the first time providing a smoother and more sculpted result. Dr. Aguirre will therefore choose this technology when skin tightening is one of the objectives or is necessary to achieve the ideal results.
By choosing SmartLipo™ over regular liposuction, a patient can see results faster and experience fewer complications. Patients interested in this minimally invasive procedure will be able to have it performed by Dr. Aguirre in his office, as opposed to a hospital. The procedure takes approximately 60 minutes per area with almost immediate results, followed by continued improvement over several weeks. Typically, this procedure will only need to be performed once.
People come in all different shapes and sizes. Every body type has areas that are predisposed to fat storage and, even with rigorous diet and exercise, those unwanted bulges often persist. Patented VASER® technology and the advanced VASER® LipoSelection technique now offer a safe alternative for ridding yourself of those stubborn fat deposits to provide you a smooth new shape with fast recovery.
VASER® LipoSelection is a minimally invasive procedure that precisely and efficiently removes unwanted body fat. An alternative to the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction, VASER® LipoSelection uses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology designed to gently reshape your body. What distinguishes the VASER® LipoSelection procedure is its ability to differentiate targeted fat from other important tissues – such as nerves, blood vessels and connective tissue. Innovative VASER® technology breaks up fat while conserving these other important tissues. Only the VASER® LipoSelection procedure uses the proprietary VASER® System to first liquefy fat and then remove it from the body to promote smooth results and rapid healing with only low to minimal pain. Thousands of VASER® LipoSelection procedures have been performed worldwide with no serious complications attributed to the technology.
In many cases, diet and exercise are the keys to weight loss and fat reduction, but sometimes they just won’t do the trick. As we get older our metabolism begins to slow down, making fat cells stubborn and harder to get rid of. Luckily, Aguirre Specialty Care has a solution!
