It depends on how thick and fibrous the fat is, previous surgery, how thin the skin might be, the age of the patient, the desired result - all these factors come into play. Selection of the technology comes after a thorough examination and discussion of expectations.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) March 17, 2009
Dr. Raul Rodriguez of LipBodySculpture of Houston and his expert staff who specialize in Smartlipo, VASER Lipo, and mesotherapy are pleased to announce the opening of their doors at a new location – 546 Waugh Drive, Houston, Texas. Houston residents as well as out of town patients now have equal access to some of the country’s most advanced body fat sculpting services in a quaint and tranquil setting that will literally make one stop and take a deep, relaxing breath.
According to the LipoBodySculpture staff, their new home is ideally located in the shadows of the picturesque Houston skyscrapers and just outside the hustle and bustle of downtown.
“You'll find us nestled on a tree lined street filled with an eclectic mix of retail, medical, entertainment and fitness businesses - our space is truly a little jewel in the city," they say.
Such a beautiful setting is especially fitting for those considering body sculpting for a dramatic change in their appearance. The expertise of Dr. Rodriguez and his staff combines over 20 years of surgical experience and the advanced laser lipolysis technologies of Smartlipo as well as VASER Lipo. While most people are familiar with traditional liposuction and tummy tucks, increasingly women and men are seeking less invasive alternatives to conventional body shaping techniques. Reasons most cited by patients selecting less invasive procedures include reduced downtime and less risk than conventional invasive procedures.
For example, traditional liposuction requires bulky tubes to suction away fat. The result is more pain, bruising, larger scars from incisions and a lengthy recovery period.
Smartlipo, known as laser lipolysis, and VASER Lipo, an innovative ultrasound technology, are two exceptional and popular alternatives to conventional liposuction - especially for those seeking a solution for troublesome fatty areas without a drastic interruption in their lifestyle.
The "smart" technology of Smartlipo is excellent for addressing small areas of fatty deposits. Using a cutting edge technique, a tiny laser literally melts away the fat. Absolutely no stitches are needed, minimizing discomfort and downtime.
VASER Lipo is more suitable for larger fatty areas. Ultrasonic energy targets fat tissue, emulsifies it, and through gentle suction and massage, the fat is removed from the body. Because the ultrasound is tissue selective, other tissue such as connective tissue, nerves, and veins are left intact.
Both Smartlipo and VASER Lipo are performed at Dr. Rodriguez's new Houston clinic and do not require a general anesthetic such as used in conventional liposuction. This means a more rapid recovery without painful or potentially dangerous side effects associated with more invasive procedures.
When it comes to deciding upon a procedure, Dr. Rodriguez states, "It depends on how thick and fibrous the fat is, previous surgery, how thin the skin might be, the age of the patient, the desired result - all these factors come into play. Selection of the technology comes after a thorough examination and discussion of expectations."
For those who don't want any surgery at all, regardless of the degree of invasiveness, Dr. Rodriguez offers additional procedure - Mesotherapy fat loss and Lipodissolve treatment. With this procedure, multiple injections of specific, active ingredients into stubborn body fat replace the use of invasive techniques. The fat seemingly melts away and is eventually expelled from the body.
Dr. Rodriguez is a member of The French Society of Mesotherapy and has over seven years of experience implementing the Mesotherapy procedure. He helped introduce the technique to the United State and was featured by Barbara Walters on ABC News 20/20 in 2003.
