  • What is Smartlipo Triplex?

    Smartlipo Triplex™ is a revolutionary liposuction technique that utilizes three separate wavelengths to carefully liquefy fat cells and promote skin tightening. In conjunction with tumescent liposuction, it offers a smoother contour with more adequate fat removal. It can also be used alone in areas to promote skin tightening.

  • How does Smartlipo Triplex work?

    This laser-assisted lipolysis procedure is performed using a small, one millimeter cannula inserted into the skin. A laser fiber inside of the cannula delivers energy directly to fat cells, causing them to rupture and drain away as liquid. Simultaneously, tissue around the area coagulates, resulting in less bleeding and overall tighter skin tissue.

Why might SmartLipo Triplex be recommended for me?

Smartlipo Triplex™ Laser Body Sculpting is ideal for treating areas that are difficult to treat with conventional liposuction:

  • the neck and jaw line
  • inner arms
  • breasts in men and women
  • “bra fat”
  • abdomen and “love handles”
  • inner and outer thighs
  • knees

These areas, although difficult to adequately treat with traditional liposuction, are safely and effectively treated with the Smartlipo Triplex™ laser. Smartlipo Triplex is more versatile than traditional liposuction because we’re able to thread a tiny laser under the skin, targeting localized fat deposits. There is less bruising than with traditional liposuction, and since the laser stimulates collagen production, it results in better skin tightening.

How does Smartlipo Triplex differ from conventional liposuction?

Conventional liposuction is meant to remove greater amounts of fat and typically requires a general anesthesia. However, since this can leave behind unsightly pockets of skin, laser assisted lipolysis is often a perfect complement. Smartlipo Triplex may only require local sedation if a small area is treated, and it can also be used to enhance the result of conventional liposuction. Patients utilizing the Smartlipo technique are reporting less discomfort than patients who had traditional liposuction alone.

What else should I know about Smartlipo Triplex?

SmartLipo Triplex™ Laser Body Sculpting is a minimally invasive body contouring procedure. Some light bruising may occur, but you’ll be able to return to work in a couple of days and resume exercise after 2 weeks. As with all cosmetic surgery procedures, the outcome of your treatment will be highly dependent upon the experience, training and qualifications of your plastic surgeon.
