New Port Richey, FL (PressExposure) April 08, 2009 -- Traditional liposuction has been available for years and is used to treat large areas of the body where fat deposits have become prevalent. Recovery from this type of invasive surgery is typically slow, bruising is extensive and the results can be less than what was hoped for.
âPatient downtime after traditional liposuction surgery is significant,â says Dr. Ramos, an internist specializing in weight loss & aesthetic lasers with Ramos Weight Loss & Aesthetic Specialists, located in New Port Richey, FL. âHowever, with the new laser-assisted Smartlipo LaserBodySculpting SM procedure, my patients are able to return to normal activities, such as work, in virtually no time at allâhealing is significantly accelerated.â
Smartlipo LaserBodySculpting is the most recent innovation from Cynosure, a worldwide leader in the surgical, medical, and aesthetic pulsed-light and laser marketplace. âThe Smartlipo LaserBodySculpting Workstation is ideal for treating small areas, especially for patients who have localized fat deposits but very lax overlying skin, which would have been made worse by traditional liposuction,â explains Dr. Bruce E. Katz, M.D., Clinical Professor, Mt. Sinai School of Medicine. âSo, in addition to melting the fat, the Smartlipo coagulates and tightens the tissue, and induces collagen production,â he adds. âSmartlipo is ideal for treating fat deposits on the face and body, and the ancillary benefit of the laser stimulating collagen production leaves the skin firm, which is an amazing and welcomed side effect,â says Dr. Ramos.
âNo matter how strict some of my patientsâ diet, and how religious they are about exercise, many of them just cannot eliminate localized areas of fat, such as around the abdomen or on the upper regions of the arms,â explains Dr. Ramos. âWith this new laser-assisted Smartlipo system from Cynosure, along with the skills of a qualified and caring surgeon, patients are now able to achieve results they never thought possible.â
