At Frisco Plastic Surgery, we offer both VASER liposuction and SmartLipo Triplex laser liposuction. These procedures are among the most popular that we offer, as they are highly effective at eliminating unwanted fat deposits that can be stubbornly resistant to diet and exercise. It is important to note, however, that liposuction is not a weight loss surgery and should not be treated as such.
Dr. Smart: Liposuction continues to be one of the most popular procedures
performed by plastic surgeons. What it is not is a weight loss procedure.
What liposuction is used for is to remove those pockets of fat that are
both diet resistant and exercise resistant. I perform both VASER
liposuction, which is ultrasonic-assisted liposuction, and smart lipo
triplex liposuction, which is laser liposuction. Those are really the two
most cutting-edge forms of liposuction. Ultrasonic liposuction first uses
sound waves to melt the fat, or emulsify it, and then it's suctioned out as
a liquid. I also use smart lipo triplex, which I said is laser liposuction.
It's the latest and most cutting-edge laser liposuction. It uses three
different wave lengths of laser, and each one has a specific purpose. One
of them melts the fat, another one coagulates blood vessels so you have
less bruising, and then another laser is beneficial for tightening the
Ammie: I have worked out for a very long time and have not seen the results
that I had liked to have seen. So, I came in, saw Dr. Smart, and we had
discussed some of the areas that I should have liposuction. And, I came in
eight months ago, and he did the procedure, and I have been very, very
pleased with the procedure. I've seen a drastic difference in the way my
clothes fit, and a lot of friends and family have said that they can also
tell that I've leaned out, also.
