Am I a candidate for traditional lipo or SmartLipo?

Quatela Center for Plastic Surgery

smartlipo vs lipo pinOptions for fat removal are constantly evolving, and many patients call our office looking to utilize the newest technology.  Desirable attributes of a liposuction procedure are for the least amount of downtime and fast, noticeable results.  However, not all patients are candidates for every procedure.
 
At the Quatela Center, Dr. Koenig offers all available options for liposuction which include laser, ultrasonic, and tumescent.  Read on to learn more and help clear up the confusion of the difference between traditional liposuction and SmartLipo.
 
What is liposuction?
 
Liposuction is a procedure to remove unwanted, stubborn fat that resists diet and exercise.  It is not a solution for weight loss.

How are liposuction and SmartLipo the same?
 
BOTH traditional lipo and SmartLipo offer:
-Small incisions, minimal scarring
-Minimal downtime and recovery
 
What additional features does SmartLipo offer?
 
-May or may not require anesthesia depending on the area treated
-Laser causes surrounding blood vessels to coagulate to diminish blood loss
-Stimulates collagen to tighten the skin
 
Each patient requires a personal consultation appointment with Dr. Koenig before a procedure is scheduled.  At this appointment, Dr. Koenig will determine which liposuction technique will work best for the area you would like to treat to give you the results you are looking for.
