Florida Plastic Surgery Practitioners Offer New Forms of Liposuction
On occasion, some post-operative swelling and pain may occur. Though laser-assisted liposuction may be used on patients between the ages of 20 to 70; it is typically most effective when used on younger patients who have more elastic skin with the ability to contract or tighten in response to subsurface volume reduction.
Bikinis are a common sight in Florida, where consistently warm weather and a seemingly endless amount of sunny days make outdoor activity commonplace. Consistent exposure to youth and beauty can lead many Floridians wishing for ways to reduce insecurities by trimming excess, unwanted fat from their bodies. Fortunately, for those seeking minimally invasive treatment, new technological advances have equipped Florida plastic surgery practitioners with efficient, safe ways to treat those looking to enhance their physical appearance.
Introduced in 2007, laser-assisted liposuction is one of the newest, most exciting technologies being used in Florida plastic surgery offices. Called SmartLipo, this laser technology generates a burst of energy as it penetrates fatty tissue that effectively liquefies fat. Similar to other liposuction techniques, SmartLipo requires standard liposuction in order to aspirate the liquefied fat; however, the laser allows for more accurate targeting of specific areas of concern, which may ultimately result in a more efficient procedure.
The AccuSculptTM Laser Lipolysis System, one of the most recent laser-assisted liposuction technologies, recently secured regulatory clearance from the Food and Drug Administration. According to the manufacturer, the device emits a special wavelength providing enhanced accuracy, control and precision that allows minimally invasive heating of deep tissue areas. The technology also offers facial contouring using a small cannula device. AccuSculptTM Laser Lipolysis System is said to provide more absorption than previous laser lipolysis systems, which translates into faster fat emulsification with an extremely low probability of peripheral thermal damage.
