Smartlipo® was approved by the FDA in 2006 as the first laser to be used for laser assisted liposuction. Dr. Dominic Tolitano has been performing this procedure since 2012, and thus far has had excellent results and no serious complications.
Advanced Vein Clinics is using the Triplex version of Smartlipo® which is the strongest and latest version of the laser available today at both their Downtown and Suburban Chicago locations.
Smartlipo® is a very safe and effective way to achieve specific goals that you may have in mind. In comparison to traditional liposuction, Smartlipo® is a far more attractive procedure. Traditional liposuction uses general anesthesia, most patients are in a lot of pain post op, and have a lengthy downtime due to the manipulation and size of the instruments. Smartlipo® is just the opposite! It can be done under local anesthesia (anesthesia is available, ask for more details), it causes minimal post op pain and the downtime is minimal!
The instrumentation is very tiny, and the surgeon melts the fat before suctioning it leaving only minimal scars and bruising, if any at all! The best part of this procedure is not only are you getting rid of fat that will never come back, there is another laser that stimulates collagen to tighten and smooth the skin.
