Advanced Concepts in Plastic Surgery offers SAL (suction assisted liposuction), UAL (ultrasonic assisted liposuction), and SmartLipo which is (laser assisted liposuction).

Dieting and exercise can slim and tone your body but there still may be some areas that are resistant to all of your hard work. Liposuction is a surgical procedure to remove unwanted fat deposits from specific areas in the body. Liposuction is not an alternative to a healthy diet and exercise routine and this will need to be maintained after the procedure to maintain your results. The best candidates are those who are at their normal weight and have certain areas resistant to diet and exercise.

Liposuction is an outpatient procedure that usually lasts from one to three hours depending on the amount of fat to be removed. The area is marked prior to the procedure. A small incision is made to allow the insertion of a hollow tube called a cannula. The other end is connected to a device which sucks out the fat.

Ultrasound-Assisted liposuction is a technique that utilizes sound waves to break up fat deposits. A special cannula is used which connects to an ultrasonic generator. As the cannula is passed through the tissues, fat cells are ruptured, releasing their contents. The liquefied fatty emulsion is then removed. UAL improves the ease and effectiveness of liposuction in fibrous areas of the body. You will be fitted with a snug elastic garment to wear over the treated area for a few weeks. The swelling usually lasts about six weeks.

Smartlipo is a minimally invasive, laser-assisted liposuction procedure that targets trouble spots like the abdomen, thighs and neck. This permanent eliminates fat. The love handles, bat wings, muffin tops, saddlebags, and jowls that don’t response to diet and exercise can be treated with laser assisted liposuction in the office with a local anesthetic. This means you don’t have to worry about going under anesthesia and you can avoid the costly charges of the operating room. Laser assisted liposuction can dramatically make a difference with minimal downtime and less pain than traditional liposuction. Smartlipo actually tightens the skin through coagulation so you don’t have to worry about dimpling and sagging. Laser assisted liposuction only involves a tiny incision about the size of the tip of a pen. It is inserted through a very small tube into your body. The laser then ruptures the fat cell membranes and these fat cells are destroyed permanently. The liquefied fat is gently suctioned out. New collagen is produced resulting in coagulation of skin, resulting in tightening. Typically only one treatment is required depending on the number of areas to be treated. Results may vary but can usually been seen within a week with continued improvement over the next three to six months.
