SMARTLIPO LASER BODY SCULPTING by Dr. Steve Johnson
Take off what dieting won’t.
Eliminate areas of unwanted fat and tone your entire body with laser-assisted lipolysis.
You’ve tried dieting. You’ve tried exercise. But parts of your body have simply refused to tone up.
Now you can change all that. LaserBodySculpting is a revolutionary, minimally invasive treatment that does something no fitness routine in the world can: permanently destroy fat cells. Since your body has only a finite amount of these cells, no new fat cells come back. You can finally have that body you’ve always wanted.
How does LaserBodySculpting work?
This laser-assisted lipolysis procedure is performed using a one millimeter cannula (or tube) inserted into the skin. A laser fiber inside of the cannula delivers energy directly to fat cells, causing them to rupture and drain away as liquid. Simultaneously, tissue around the area coagulates, resulting in overall tighter skin tissue.
What areas of the body can be treated?
LaserBodySculpting is ideal for the neck, jawline, arms, breasts, “bra fat”, abdomen, “love handles,” “saddle bags”, inner and outer thighs and knees.
Am I a candidate?
LaserBodySculpting is meant for areas that do not respond to diet and exercise. The perfect candidate is in good health and of normal body weight.
How does LaserBodySculpting compare to conventional liposuction?
Conventional liposuction is meant to remove greater amounts of fat. However, since this can leave behind unsightly pockets of skin, laser assisted lipolysis is often a perfect complement.
Is there a recovery period?
LaserBodySculpting is a minimally invasive procedure which usually requires only local anesthesia. Some light trauma can occur but you’ll be able to return to work in a couple of days and resume exercise after 2 weeks.
How many treatments are required?
Typically only one treatment is required. Results can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over 3 to 6 months. A compression garment may be worn for a short period after treatment, depending on the body area treated.
• Permanently destroys fat cells
• Improves overall body shape
• Minimally invasive
• Coagulation resulting in tissue tightening
Dr. Johnson presents Tumescent Liposuction
Developed by dermatology surgeons in the 1980’s, tumescent liposuction involves filling the fatty layer of skin with a diluted solution of local anesthesia and other medications prior to removing excess fat. Tumescent liposuction allows for safe and efficient removal of both deep and superficial excess layers of fat with little discomfort, rapid healing, and improved cosmetic results. It is an outpatient procedure.
Liposuction is most effective for removing localized fat deposits that do not respond to diet or exercise. Liposuction is not intended as a substitute for weight loss; rather, it is a contouring procedure. It is best utilized in a program of exercise and optimal weight maintenance. The best results are obtained on body areas where there is reasonable muscle tone, good skin elasticity, and fat is not excessive. In cases where there is a significant loss of tone and elasticity, the desired cosmetic results may require a combination of both liposuction and surgical skin tightening to remove the excessive loose tissue.
After tumescent liposuction, most patients are generally alert and able to function; patients can usually return to a desk-type job within a few days. Physical exercise may be resumed
3-7 days after the procedure.
