I originally was trained on the use of a power assisted hand-piece to assist the surgeon aspirate fat with standard liposuction technique. Then during my training I also instituted the use of the Vaser System (Ultrasonic Assisted Liposuction). While the Vaser system was an effective adjunct to my liposuction practice, I have essentially stopped using ultrasonic energy and proceeded with a newer technique, SmartLipo. This is a laser assisted liposuction apparatus that not only melts the fat but also helps to tighten the skin. Most recently, I have once again, returned to using Power Assisted Liposuction developed by Microaire and I now combine this with the Smartlipo treatment of the fat. I truly find this combination to be most effective at contouring a patient’s body shape and create the most impressive result yet!
How this benefits you? Your contours will be much improved. The amount of fat removed is greater and the post operative result is smoother! Each of my patients who have undergone this combination technique have seen results beyond their expectations.
