Smartlipo Plus – Additional Procedures for Added Benefit
Vanquish Fat Removal
One of the newest high-tech treatments at Danyo Plastic Surgery is Vanquish! Vanquish is truly revolutionary for fat reduction. Vanquish is a panoramic body contouring, fat diminishing device, that uses focused radio frequency to heat and breakdown fat cells. It is designed to work on the abdomen and love handles, and can be performed on other select areas as well.
During your 30-minute Vanquish treatment, there is usually no pain and it’s often found to be a relaxing procedure. The full office visit is no more than 60 minutes! There are no needles involved and no downtime afterwards. Most patients see results after one treatment.* Dr. Danyo’s Vanquish Treatment can be performed 2 weeks after your SmartLipo procedure, or in preference of SmartLipo if you wish.
Exilis Body Shaping, Skin Tightening & Facial Rejuvenation
Exilis is a safe and effective FDA approved treatment that uses radio frequency energy to deliver non-invasive controlled heat 1-3cm under the skin and into the underlying fat layer. Heat creates a biochemical signal in the tissue to stimulate collagen disrpution and growth. Stimulated collagen naturally forms tighter skin with the potential for fewer wrinkles through new collagen production.*
Exilis treatments are virtually painless and cause no downtime. If maximal tissue tightening is the goal, then a series of 2-5 Exilis treatments beginning 1-2 weeks post Smartlipo at 1-2 week intervals would be ideal. Each treatment session requires approximately 15 minutes per area. Many patients report results after just 1 treatment!*
Fractional Skin Resurfacing for Stretch Marks
Stretch marks have been traditionally very resistant to treatment with topical techniques. The only true way to remove them is to excise them during an abdominoplasty or similar operation. However, significant improvement can be achieved using a fractional erbium or CO2 laser either at the time of the Smartlipo procedure or afterwards. The laser places tiny treatment zones into the dermis of the stretch marked skin in a screen like pattern which creates heat and inflammation. This results in new and better organized collagen and therefore a diminished appearance in stretch marks.* Downtime is approximately 7-10 days until the skin is fully healed. Fractional skin resurfacing can be done anywhere on the body and works particularly well on sun damaged skin like the face and chest.*
Mini-Facelift in Conjunction with Neck Smartlipo
Sagging neck skin and certainly excess neck fat can be treated with Smartlipo. However, there is definitely a limit to how much the skin will tighten in response to the laser energy. Also, Smartlipo is not usually done on the cheek. In cases where maximal improvement to the cheek and neck is desired, in a minimally invasive setting under local anesthesia, a mini-facelift can be performed. The incision is placed in front and behind the ear and is designed to be as hidden as possible. Excess skin is elevated and excised and the underlying fatty layer (SMAS) is tightened as well.
There is a limit as to how much the skin of the abdomen will tighten in response to the Smartlipo procedure. When maximal improvement is desired in the lower abdomen, with a minimally invasive procedure under local anesthesia, a low skin incision can be made to remove some loose skin.
