Masri Clinic for Laser and Cosmetic Surgery in Detroit is proud to offer the first SmartLipo™ device in Michigan that utilizes multiple laser waves and SmartSense technology, a safer and more effective system for SmartLipo™. Smartlipo™ melts away fat in any area of your body, tightens your skin, and reduces stretch marks. Board Certified Plastic Surgeons at Masri Clinic in Detroit offer the latest non-invasive and minimally invasive technologies to provide post-pregnancy patients effective treatment solutions for stretched skin, excess fat and cellulite.
Recent FDA Approval
SmartLipo™ liquefies fat and significantly tightens skin using fine laser fibers that are placed under the skin. Pioneered in Europe, the SmartLipo™ procedure is the first laser-assisted liposuction procedure, and after its recent approval by the FDA has quickly been labeled the cutting-edge procedure in cosmetic surgery. SmartLipo™ has become extremely popular due to the significant decrease in risk and shorter recovery time compared to traditional liposuction.
As more women and men want to look and feel better about themselves, body contouring and lipo sculpture continue to grow in popularity, making liposuction the most popular cosmetic surgery performed today. SmartLipo™ is the first and only laser-assisted lipolysis system to offer a revolutionary and minimally invasive procedure for the removal of fat, using a high powered laser. SmartLipo™ is a new laser body sculpting procedure with less downtime and side effects than traditional liposuction.
Faster Results, Shorter Recovery Time
Because SmartLipo™ is minimally invasive, it allows patients to see faster results, fewer complications and shorter recovery time. SmartLipo’s patients only need a local anesthetic, so the patient is not completely conscious during the procedure. SmartLipo™ carries much fewer risks than traditional Liposuction and is performed in the comfort and privacy of Masri Clinic’s accredited surgical facility. Often, a patient can go back to work within a few short days, and results continue to become visible for up to 3 months.
How It Works
SmartLipo™ carefully uses calibrated laser to liquefy fat deposits thorough the layers of the patient’s skin. The laser ruptures fat cells and the resulting of an oily liquid substance in the removal through a tiny incision in the skin by a surgeon. The small laser can also seal blood vessels as it zaps fat so, there is less swelling, bleeding and bruising than the traditional liposuction. The procedure is minimally invasive, which means less scarring, shorter recovery time, and no general anesthesia required. Along with many improvements in liposuction, laser lipo takes it one step further and offers increased skin tightening, less damage to the surrounding tissue during the procedure and in return, less downtime post procedure.
Body Contouring Options
SmartLipo™ can be coupled with various lasers that treat the top layers of skin, creating a greater degree of tightening. Masri Clinic in Detroit, MI offers Body By Thermage, an enhanced version of the radiofrequency treatment for skin tightening and contouring. VelaShape treatments combine radiofrequency waves ‘hitchhiking’ on an infrared wave with suction and massage to gently tighten skin and reduce cellulite. For some patients, combining all of these modalities can replace the need for a tummy tuck.
If you’re seeking a cutting edge, highly effective method to significantly improve the safety and efficiency of many surgical techniques, this laser technology is definitely the technique you will want to consider.
