Posted Jan 29 2013 6:16am
Laser-assisted liposuction treatment is a cosmetic surgery procedure that uses laser energy to remove of excess, localized deposits of fat. Patients considering this FDA approved treatment always ask the question: when can I get back to work after laser liposuction surgery? This would depend on the technology used and the plastic surgeon performing the procedure
Liposuction Treatment with the Latest Laser Technology Minimizes Recovery Time
Established plastic surgery facilities provide laser liposuction using Cynosure’s SmartLipo Triplex technology. This superior technology offers effective results safely and in quick time.
Minimally invasive: The major advantage of lipolysis with the SmartLipo Triplex workstation is that it is minimally invasive. The procedure requires only a tiny incision through which the small cannula with laser fiber is inserted. Controlled laser energy is delivered to disrupt the fat cells, which can be easily suctioned off. The device also works to coagulate the blood vessels to ensure less bleeding and swelling. All this helps in fast healing and recovery.
Outpatient procedure using local anesthesia: A safe and gentler procedure, this liposuction surgery can be performed in the surgical suite attached to the plastic surgeon’s office. This reduces downtime. As the use of the minimally invasive SmartLipo technology involves local anesthesia, surgical trauma and patient risks are reduced. The patient remains awake throughout the procedure.
Safe technology: SmartLipo Triplex is an advanced technology that offers the combined effect of three different laser wavelengths - 1064nm, 1440nm and 1320nm - which help in melting fat and tightening skin. This device also incorporates advanced delivery systems that helps in quick healing such as
SmartSense which provides precise laser power required to perform the surgery.
ThermaGuide, a temperature sensing cannula that profiles sub dermal temperatures for safer clinical results.
ThermaView with infrared thermal camera alerts when maximum skin temperature is reached, thereby preventing overheating.
