Factors such as aging, genetics, hormonal imbalances, pregnancy, weight gain, poor diet, and stress can contribute to a “belly pooch” or a protruding tummy in women. This excess fat is not easy to get rid of with even strenuous diets and rigorous exercise. Liposuction in NYC is an ideal option to address this common aesthetic concern and help men and women achieve an attractive, well-shaped torso. However, today, liposuction is performed using advanced technologies like SmartLipo Triplex, which not only removes excess fat but also provides skin tightening benefits, which conventional liposuction surgery does not provide.
Smartlipo abdominal laser liposuction in Manhattan, NYC is designed to treat localized pockets of fat in the abdominal area. This minimally-invasive procedure removes subcutaneous fat that lies beneath the skin and on top of the abdominal muscle wall. It also simultaneously tightens the overlying skin to provide a tighter, flatter, and well-toned tummy. When compared to traditional liposuction, the procedure comes with many benefits such as minimal scarring, swelling, bleeding, bruising and pain as well as short treatment time and downtime, faster healing, and speedy recovery. One of the major advantages of laser liposuction is that it encourages the production of collagen and promotes excellent skin tightening.
Though abdominal laser liposuction is a minimally-invasive contouring treatment, you need to be a good candidate to benefit from it. An ideal candidate for Smartlipo liposuction of abdomen would meet the following criteria:
- Is over 18 years of age
- Has localized fat deposits in the abdomen/tummy region that are resistant to diet and regular exercise
- Has healthy skin with good elasticity
- Is in good general health, without any underlying medical conditions
- Has a healthy body weight
- Does not smoke
- Have realistic expectations about the outcome
The success of abdomen liposuction depends on certain factors such as age, location of the fat, and weight fluctuations.
NYC plastic surgeons perform abdominal liposuction on an outpatient basis using the FDA approved Smartlipo Triplex workstation. The surgeon will first mark the area to be treated and numb it with local anesthesia. The small cannula of the device is then inserted under the skin through a small incision to deliver laser energy in a focused manner to target and liquefy the unwanted fat cells. The liquefied fat is then gently suctioned out.
The workstation, Smartlipo Triplex utilizes an optimal blend of three laser wavelengths -1440nm, 1320 nm, and 1064 nm – to liquefy the fat cells and tighten the skin simultaneously safely and effectively. Its three intelligent delivery systems SmartSense™, ThermaView™ and ThermaGuide™, deliver the laser energy in the right proportion and prevents over treatment. It also provides optimal body contouring and skin tightening effects. Moreover, when compared to conventional liposuction, patients experience only minimal pain and scarring. This because of the use of local anesthesia which reduces treatment time, patient downtime, promotes faster healing and quick recovery.
Recovery from abdominal laser liposuction in NYC is quick and most patients are back to their normal activities in 24-48 hours. Some minor swelling and bruising can be expected which will subside in few days. To speed up the recovery process, patients need to take extra care and follow their surgeon’s instructions diligently.
