New York, NY (PRWEB) May 04, 2017
Dr. Kenneth O. Rothaus, board-certified NYC plastic surgeon, now offers the newest procedure in minimally invasive fat reduction, SmartLipo. SmartLipo is a unique laser treatment that disrupts the pockets of fat below the skin, delivering the optimal blend of wavelengths for fat removal and tissue tightening. The procedure provides optimum results with less downtime and minimal bruising as compared to traditional liposuction.
SmartLipo was developed for men and women who are not significantly overweight, but have accumulated fat deposits that they can’t get rid of with diet and exercise alone. It is performed under local anesthesia, numbing only the specific areas meant for treatment, so you are awake during the procedure. A very thin tube containing the SmartLipo laser fiber is inserted in the targeted areas delivering thermal energy directly to the fat cells. This melts the fat, which is removed with gentle suction.
On average the procedure takes 1.5-2 hours, depending on the number and size of the areas specified for treatment. After SmartLipo, patients may experience some aches, much like after a physical workout. Results can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over three to six months. “At my practice, we stay on top of the newest advances in cosmetic technology,” says Dr. Rothaus, “SmartLipo fits that category and we are happy to list it among the procedures we offer.”
