Body Contouring Q & A

- Smartlipo Triplex™
- Tumescent liposuction

What is Smartlipo?
During Smartlipo -- or laser-assisted lipolysis -- Dr. Ohanian uses local anesthesia to numb the treatment area. She makes a tiny incision to fit a minuscule tube underneath the skin. A laser fiber inside the tube delivers laser energy directly to the fat cells, which are liquefied and permanently removed from the area with suction. Simultaneously, the heat from the laser tightens the surrounding tissues, giving you firmer and smoother results than surgical liposuction.
What is Tumescent Liposuction?
Tumescent liposuction is liposuction performed on swollen and solid subcutaneous fat under local anesthetic.
This procedure involves the injection of subcutaneous fat with a large volume of water containing very dilute anesthetic and a drug that constricts capillaries. The injected fluid then swells up the treatment area and firms up the fat.
What is I-Lipo?
I-Lipo is a laser treatment that offers safe, pain-free body contouring in as little as 20 minutes, without surgery or downtime. The i-Lipo is the first direct skin contact laser device designed for fat reduction and body contouring to receive FDA clearance for circumference reduction.
Emitting low levels of laser energy, i-Lipo creates a chemical signal in the fat cells, breaking down stored triglycerides into free fatty acids and glycerol and releases them through the cell membrane channels. These are transported around the body and used during metabolism to create energy.
What is BodyFX?
InMode BodyFX is a non-invasive body contouring treatment that targets fatty tissues. This procedure uses radio-frequency energy to heat the skin. It also utilizes a negative pressure combination massage handpiece that enables the energy to reach maximum depth penetration. Studies have shown that BodyFX reduces fat and increases firmness in the treated area.
What is Avelar Abdominoplasty?
Avelar abdominoplasty allows for the removal of excess fat from the abdomen without large-scale cutting and trauma under sterile technique. Developed by Brazilian surgeon Juarez M. Avelar, this procedure is performed under local tumescent anesthesia in a specialized procedure room in the office.
What is Fat Transfer?
Fat transfer is a procedure used to fill fine lines and wrinkles with fat taken from other areas of the body. It’s a safe, non-allergenic method of re-contouring your body.
