RENO, NV, may 30, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) –Dr. Tiffany McCormack, a board-certified plastic surgeon, isannouncing the recent addition of one of the latest developments inliposuction known as SmartLipo(TM). The liposuction alternative useslaser energy to reduce fat pockets and create an increasinglycontoured appearance, which she says can reduce the recovery time andbruising often associated with the traditional liposuction procedure.
SmartLipo(TM) was approved by the FDA in 2006 as the firstlaser-assisted liposuction alternative. according to Dr. McCormack,the minimally invasive procedure allows her to specifically targetthose areas of fat that have been resistant to diet and exercise. Inaddition to the overall effectiveness of this innovative technology,she adds that SmartLipo(TM) presents the patient with a morecost-effective solution to eliminating unwanted fat and achieving thebody contour and confidence in their appearance they desire.
after administering a local anesthetic to the targeted areas, theReno plastic surgeon creates small incisions to accommodate for theultra-thin fiber optic lasers, which will melt the excess fat andallow it to be suctioned out. once the procedure is complete, shesays the patient’s skin should be smoother, tighter, and firmer,improving the overall aesthetic contour of the area. because of theminimally invasive nature of the procedure, Dr. McCormack says mostpatients are able to resume their normal daily activities within oneto two days. while recovery times and side effects will vary for eachpatient, she says any bruising or swelling should subside quickly,with results continuing to improve in the weeks and months followingthe procedure.
regardless of whether a patient is considering a less invasiveprocedure such as SmartLipo(TM), or a combination of procedures knownas the mommy makeover, Dr. McCormack says she urges patients toschedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. “Inchoosing a board certified surgeon, patients will know this plasticsurgeon has completed at least five years of surgical training with aminimum of two years in plastic surgery; they will know the surgeonhas been trained in all cosmetic enhancement procedures, operatesonly in accredited medical facilities, adheres to a strict code ofethics, and fulfills rigorous continuing education requirements.”
as for why Dr. McCormack has added the SmartLipo(TM) system, she saysthere are three distinct advantages: “First, I have found that manypatients have relatively small areas they are interested in treating,such as the neck, arms, lower abdomen, and inner thighs. Some ofthese areas benefit as much from skin tightening as they do from fatreduction. second, SmartLipo can be performed in office and requireslittle downtime. and last, while I have resisted laser lipolysissystems in the past because of their reputation for possible burns,the triplex system is the only system with a subdermal temperatureprobe that automatically turns off if the temperature gets too high.SmartLipo is a safe and effective treatment that allows patients toaddress some of the issues that liposuction alone does not.”
