Lasers, Lines, and Liposuction
October 19, 2017
One of the most popular, up-and-coming fads within the plastic surgery industry is laser liposuction, or Smart Lipo. Laser liposuction takes the traditional liposuction technique one step further, using a laser to emulsify the fat and tighten the skin before the fat is removed. This procedure delivers laser-powered energy to the fat cells through a very small fiber inserted through tiny incisions. The laser ruptures the fat cell membranes and liquefies the fat as well as cauterizes blood vessels, which reduces bleeding and bruising that may occur during the process. Collagen tissue is also stimulated at the same time to tighten loose skin. After the fat is liquefied, a canula is inserted to gently remove the liquid fat. This type of procedure generally causes less bruising and swelling, faster recovery times, and improved skin tightening more so than traditional liposuction.
Another timeless trend in plastic surgery is fillers. The formulas for fillers are ever evolving and changing to give you, the patient, the best results imaginable. JUVÉDERM® is the #1 selling collection of hyaluronic acid fillers in the US. Each product in the JUVÉDERM® collection of fillers adds volume to a different area of the face to lift cheeks, smooth parentheses lines, or plump the lips. The results are subtle and long-lasting. There are three major JUVÉDERM® products we use here at DiFrancesco Plastic Surgery:
- JUVÉDERM® Vollure is the smooth gel filler that Dr. DiFrancesco will use to instantly smooth away wrinkles around your mouth and nose.
- JUVÉDERM® Voluma XC is used to create a subtle lift, adding volume in the cheeks where it has been lost due to aging.
- JUVÉDERM® Volbella adds subtle volume to lips as well as softens the appearance of vertical lip lines.
All JUVÉDERM® products are proven to last approximately 12-18 months on patients over the age of 18.
