Smartlipo – Laser Fat Removal
SmartLipo TriPlex, simply put, is the safest and most advanced laser-assisted liposuction technology on the market!
The Smartlipo micro-laser is inserted into a targeted fatty tissue area under the skin and delivers thermal heat in order to liquefy the fatty tissue (called lipolysis) which is then removed with a micro-wand with suction known as a micro-cannula.
Because anything is easier to remove if it is liquified, even from our bodies, the entire procedure is minimally-invasive, extremely safe, and highly efficient with a downtime of only 2-3 days. Additionally, the thermal heat produced by the SmartLipo laser causes coagulation which in turn retracts and tightens the skin in that area, contributing to a smoother, tighter result.
One thing to keep in mind: NOT ALL LASERS USED IN LASER LIPOSUCTION ARE CREATED EQUAL.
The SmartLipo laser is the only technology that has an embedded temperature monitoring system that will constantly monitor the heat in the targeted area which eliminates the major risk that other lasers have: burning of skin. Furthermore, it is the only technology that allows Dr. Cole and Dr. Puppala to use a combination of three different wavelengths which is ideal for permanently getting rid of both small and large fat pockets without risking skin laxity.
Our SmartLipo Technique
The reason Dr. Cole is known all around the world for his skin-tightening techniques is because he performs an extra step in the areas where he removes the liquefied fatty tissue. After performing SmartLipo and removing the fat, Dr. Cole goes back and uses a state-of-the art radio frequency skin-tightening microlaser in those areas which will help further stimulate the natural collagen production. Collagen is a naturally occurring compound that is responsible for skin elasticity which decreases as we start to age. Dr. Cole’s SmartLipo +Additional RF Skin Tightening technique dramatically boosts skin retraction, resulting in a significantly tighter, smoother area as opposed to the “old-school” traditional liposuction result!
Dr. Ramana Puppala’s laser-liposuction career has been under the direction and extensive training of Dr. Louis Cole at Atlanta Liposuction Specialty Clinic and has earned him a co-chair surgeon position at the Atlanta-based surgical center where he specializes in laser liposuction.
Is SmartLipo right for you?
Unlike traditional liposuction, which was usually considered too invasive to be used around the neck or the face, the SmartLipo TriPlex technology is safe enough to be used both on the face and body. Dr. Cole can remove stubborn fat pockets anywhere from the chin, to arms, to abdomen, to thighs, and even back. Some of Dr. Cole’s patients combine their liposuction procedure with a fat transferring step where harvested fat from an area is reused in order to sculpt and enhance their buttocks (known as a Brazilian Butt Lift) or naturally augment their breast (known as a Natural Breast Augmentation).
