we decided to pair the breakthrough laser lipolysis system with the ultrasound technique to create our own procedure, SmartLipo™ Ultra
Miami, FL. (PRWEB) June 16, 2010
A defining standard of Soluna MD is its commitment to patient education. The Soluna MD staff, led by general and cosmetic surgeon John W. Chang, MD, arms patients with the most current and important information about laser lipolysis (also known as laser lipo or laser liposuction) procedures and benefits. The goal: to ensure every patient chooses the laser lipo technique that best meets their needs and preferences. And, at Soluna MD, it is the laser lipo plus ultrasound technique – SmartLipo™ Ultra – that is the leading procedure of choice. Having successfully completed 2,500 SmartLipo™ Ultra procedures, Soluna MD has earned a reputation for excellence, positioning itself as a destination – locally, nationally and internationally – for individuals seeking this highly effective, minimally invasive fat elimination and body sculpting treatment.
“In the field of cosmetic surgery, advancements in the technology used for procedures are occurring every day,” says Dr. Chang. “As well, there is a plethora of names on the market given to these techniques, particularly in association with laser lipo. This can be overwhelming and confusing for someone interested in undergoing a laser lipo procedure. We work hard to remove the mystery and clarify the details of the techniques we offer, so that our patients are sure to make an educated and confident decision. It is our obligation to fully inform them about all aspects of the techniques offered and be there for them before, during and well after the procedure.”
What is laser lipo?
Lipolysis is defined as the hydrolysis of lipids. In other words, fat is broken down through its reaction with water. With laser lipolysis, the fat is broken down, or melted, by a laser. Cynosure’s SmartLipo™ was the first laser lipolysis system brought to market, receiving high marks for its ability to destroy fat cells and coagulate tissue for tighter skin. Soluna MD has utilized the groundbreaking system and is an official physician training and clinical reference center for SmartLipo™. Dr. Chang was confident in his utilization of the SmartLipo™ system for treating localized fat deposits (small areas) on the face and body. However, he questioned whether it was sufficient for larger areas of the body. The answer was no.
“SmartLipo™ alone is not effective in emulsifying fat in larger areas of the body,” says Chang. “Therefore, we decided to pair the breakthrough laser lipolysis system with the ultrasound technique to create our own procedure, SmartLipo™ Ultra. We begin by breaking up the fat with ultrasound and then do the finishing touches with SmartLipo™. This is the best way to get the best results.”
How does the SmartLipo™ Ultra procedure work? An ultrasound machine, such as Vaser Lipo or Ultra-Sculpt, does not operate like a scan. It is a minimally invasive procedure. A long rod known as a cannula is inserted into the designated area. Gently, it vibrates and emulsifies the fat. The lipid-turned-liquid substance is then extracted. This step de-bulks the area.
The second step in the SmartLipo™ Ultra process is to use the SmartLipo™ system on the finer areas, contouring and tightening the skin, as well as promoting collagen growth. The result is a smooth, toned, natural appearance.
For those seeking a minimally invasive, affordable and permanent fat reduction and body sculpting procedure, SmartLipo™ Ultra is the laser lipo plus ultrasound procedure of choice. Because the two-step procedure only requires local anesthesia, patients will experience little to no recovery time and minor discomfort while enjoying a refreshed look they will be proud to show off.
“Today, it’s the manufacturers that are educating doctors and consumers about laser lipo and ultrasound procedures,” Chang adds. “Doctors are buying equipment at the advice of the manufacturers and consumers are following suit, buying into what is marketed to them. This is a very backwards scenario. At Soluna MD, this is not the case. We specialize in laser lipo and ultrasound – this is what we do – and it’s our duty to determine the very best equipment for our needs and pass our research and due diligence onto our patients by using only state-of-the-art equipment and providing the safest, most cutting-edge cosmetic surgery procedures.”
The highest priorities at Soluna MD are safety, quality, service and care. The Soluna MD team is dedicated to educating its patients and being by their side every step of the way, no matter how minor the procedure.
