What is the recovery period like?

Smartlipo Triplex is a minimally invasive procedure which usually requires only local anesthesia.  Some light bruising can occur, but you'll be able to return to normal activities within a day or two. Individual results and experience may vary.

 What is Smartlipo?

Smartlipo TriPlex™ is the most advanced laser-assisted lipolysis system available.  This unique technology safely delivers the optimal blend of three laser wavelengths for better fat removal and enhanced tissue tightening. Individual results and experience may vary.

Do you have love handles, bat wings, muffin tops, saddlebags or jowls that don't respond to exercise and diet?  They all improve dramatically using Smartlipo TriPlex, with minimal downtime and less pain than traditional liposuction alone.  Because Smartlipo actually tightens tissue, you don't have to worry about dimpling and sagging afterwards.

How is the procedure performed?

This laser-assisted lipolysis procedure is performed using a small cannula (or tube) about the size of the tip of a pen, which is inserted under the skin.  The laser delivers energy directly to the fat cells through the cannula, causing them to rupture.  The liquified fat is then gently suctioned out.  New collagen is produced, resulting in tissue tightening.  The three laser wavelengths contained in Smartlipo Triplex allow Dr. Chao to customize treatments based on the nature of your concern.

What are the advantaged of Smartlipo Triplex over conventional liposuction?

First, both treatments remove fat, but unlike Smartlipo Triplex, conventional liposuction can leave behind loose skin.  Second, because local anesthetic is typically used with Smartlipo treatments (instead of general anesthesia), you're awake during the procedure - that's a real plus, leading to a faster, easier recovery.  Smartlipo Triplex can also create a high definition, sculpted look by defining waistlines in women and abdominal muscles in men (six pack). Individual results and experience may vary.

Who should consider Smartlipo?

The best candidates for Smartlipo are women and men who are not significantly overweight, but have accumulated fat deposits - such as love handles, flabby arms, excess neck or facial fat or fat on the lower torso.  A complimentary consultation with Dr. Chao can provide you with the best information customized for your needs.
