AACS Annual Meeting
At the annual meeting of the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery that I attended in Orlando, Fl last week, I became convinced that Laser lipolysis has progressed from the early days of SmartLipo to the more powerful, easier & FDA approved LipoTherme laser device for body contouring.
As a result of the impressive result and quicker recovery with this procedure we purchased the Osryris Lipotherme laser & will be offering Laser Lipo in the near future.
Lipotherme is a safe, effective, minimally invasive procedure that uses a laser to liquefy and remove unwanted fat in targeted body zones. In addition to removing unwanted fat, Lipothermeâ??s thermal effect causes the skin to contract, resulting in firmer, smoother skin that further enhances your body shaping goals.
Laser Lipolysis with Lipotherme offers:
Minimally invasive vs. traditional liposuction
Faster procedure to have performed, usually as an “in office” procedure
Minimal Healing – less destruction to blood vessels and tissues near the fat cells means less blood loss and reduced post procedure downtime.
Minimal Discomfort and typically performed under Local AnesethiaThe clinical term for this type of procedure is laser-assisted lipolysis (also called laser lipolysis or laser lipo for short) which is an evolution of traditional liposuction. Although effective, traditional liposuction is considered a highly invasive procedure. By contrast, Lipotherme laser lipolysis is a minimally-invasive procedure with virtually no downtime. Most patients resume normal activities the day after their procedure, however, it is recommended you wait several days before resuming strenuous activity such as exercising. Depending on your goals and physical condition, Lipotherme can be an alternative to traditional liposuction, or or dr Porcaro may recommend a combination therapy of Lipotherme with traditional liposuction.
