The Latest Liposculpture Tool: Smartlipo™ for Beverly Hills and Los Angeles Residents

February 28, 2008,

Marina Del Rey, California, February 29, 2008—Smartlipo has attracted enormous media attention as a modern technique for removing unwanted deposits of fat. Now Marina Plastic Surgery, one of the premier plastic surgery practices in Los Angeles, is taking it to the next level. They are one of only two practices in Southern California to have the new, more powerful 18 watt Smartlipo laser liposuction system. For Beverly Hills and Los Angeles patients, this means that they will get more benefit in a wider range of areas than with previous systems.

The Smartlipo system is the industry’s first laser-assisted lipolysis system designed to dissolve fat cells and coagulate tissue leading to tissue tightening. This makes it optimal for treating areas of fat that also have skin laxity, such as the neck and abdomen. It also facilitates removing fat with less trauma from fibrous areas such as the back and hips. The laser reduces bleeding and bruising by coagulating blood vessels as it liquefies the fat. Furthermore, Smartlipo is useful for corrective procedures, where patients have lumps or unevenness from previous liposuction and require a precise procedure for improvement.

Dr. Grant Stevens is in a good position to assess the effectiveness of this state-of-the-art Smartlipo system for his Los Angeles patients. This board certified plastic surgeon has treated thousands of unwanted deposits of fat over the years with other advanced liposuction techniques. The new Smartlipo system allows him to treat small areas in a less invasive way than was previously possible. In larger cases, Smartlipo complements power-assisted liposuction as a way to tighten the tissues and reduce bruising and swelling.

Dr. Stevens explained that “patients frequently request treatments with shorter recovery times. Smartlipo gently reduces unwanted deposits of fat, frequently under local anesthesia, so that patients can resume their normal lives quickly.” With minimal time off from work required for this procedure, Smartlipo has made body sculpting accessible to the many patients who just don’t have time for a prolonged recovery.

Another exciting advantage of Smartlipo is that its laser precision gives surgeons the ability to sculpt the body more than was possible with previous techniques. The two millimeter laser fiber is tiny and may be used close to the skin as a technique for liposculpture. Liposculpture is a refined technique in body contouring that creates more graceful curves in the jawline, abdomen and thighs.

Liposuction is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery operations, and now that the less invasive technique of Smartlipo is available, the demand for body sculpting is likely to become more popular than ever. “Most of my patients have returned to work in one to two days,” reports Dr. Stevens.
