Dr. Christopher T. Chia, a fellowship-trained aesthetic plastic surgeon, offers the minimally invasive Smartlipo™" procedure at the new Sleek Surgical Center in Manhattan.

Sleek Surgical, a division of Sleek Inc., announced today it is now offering Smartlipo™ in its New York surgical center. Smartlipo, the latest technological advance in the removal of fat and the world's first and only laser-assisted lipolysis system, removes unwanted fat and tightens skin in a matter of minutes. With smart lipo, risks and complications are minimal compared with traditional liposuction.

"If you have areas of fat that will not respond to diet and exercise, then you're a candidate for Smartlipo," explained Dr. Christopher T. Chia, a fellowship-trained aesthetic plastic surgeon at Sleek Surgical Center in New York. "Ideal candidates are in generally good health, with a reasonable body weight and have realistic expectations for the results."

Traditional liposuction has been performed for years to treat large areas of the body where fat deposits have accumulated. Unlike the smart lipo procedure, complications of this surgery include extensive bruising, risks from general anesthetic and a slow recovery time.

Smartlipo is a minimally invasive procedure and can be performed under local anesthesia. A small laser is inserted causing small blood vessels to coagulate immediately on contact, resulting in less bleeding, swelling and bruising. As a result, smart lipo complications are rare and patients are able to return to normal activities in no time at all. Because general anesthesia is unnecessary, there are only minimal side effects and smartlipo risks are almost non-existent.

"Smartlipo is just one of the exciting new procedures we're now offering in our New York surgical center," said Andrew Rudnick, CEO of Sleek, Inc. "Dr. Chia and his staff are committed to serving our clients with the latest equipment and technology available in the cosmetic industry."

Smartlipo can be used on practically any part of the body. In particular, Smartlipo is ideal for smaller areas of loose skin and stubborn fat such as the neck, face, lovehandles, and knees., Smartlipo can sculpt and tighten many areas of the body in a matter of minutes and permanently destroys fat cells so repeat procedures on the same body part are unnecessary.
