I have recently incorporated SmartLipo into my surgical practice at Magnolia Cosmetic Surgery Center, and it is fantastic! Smartlipo is a laser that makes liposculpture/body contouring procedures much better than what has been available in the past. I have done more than 20 cases in about 6 weeks and the results so far have been amazing.
The main benefits are that the recovery is just a few days compared to a week or more with traditional liposuction, and there is much less bruising and swelling. I use it for the removal of unwanted fat and also for skin tightening. There is also a new technique called the SmartLift, where I use the laser to help tighten the skin of the neck and jowls, and again the recovery compared to a traditional facelift is significantly shorter. I am one of a few cosmetic surgeons in the Southeastern United States doing this SmartLift procedure, and I am training several surgeons in the region to use this technology to help their patients.
Let me know if you have any questions and I'll try to answer them in my next entry. Have a great day!
