Liposuction is a procedure designed to remove excess fat deposits. These deposits can be almost anywhere on the body. The ideal candidate for liposuction is a person of normal weight with one or several areas of excess fat deposits that cannot be eliminated despite optimal diet and exercise. Clinically obese patients are not good candidates for liposuction, though patients that are moderately overweight can be benefited.
Liposuction surgery has been available for approximately 30 years. Dr. Sherwood Baxt has continued to refine techniques even though there has been no significant change in the procedure for a long time. In general, traditional liposuction has been very successful over the years, however, we all know about the longer recuperation and bruising with traditional liposuction. The surgery also needed to be performed under some form of anesthesia.
The first dramatic change came with the introduction of the SmartLipo™. We were the first in New Jersey and one of the first in America to offer the SmartLipo™ and now have probably one of the largest series of treated patients. The significant improvement to the original traditional liposuction is mainly skin tightening.
Soon after, Dr. Baxt offered his patients the SmartLipo MPX™. It combines 2 wavelengths, 1064nm and the 1320nm, for optimal skin tightening and fat removal. Now we offer the SmartLipo Triplex™ (3 wavelengths) and the ability to offer select patients "LOCAL" anesthesia or twilight anesthesia if the patient so wishes.
Almost any area of the body with excessive fat deposits may be treated with the SmartLipo Triplex™, including:
- Beneath the Chin (Neck)
