The surgical procedure designed to remove stubborn fatty tissues in the body is known simply as lipo (liposuction surgery). It is normally undertaken when you have tried various efforts – exercising, dieting and lifestyle changes – to eliminating body fats to no avail. These stubborn body fats do not become manifest simply because of a Friday night’s chocolate bingeing, but rather due to a confluence of lifetime factors that include your genetics, pregnancy, and significant weight fluctuations. Generally, body areas where hard-to-remove fat bulges may occur in your thighs, abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and face.
For many years, the popularity of lipo procedure has escalated due to the fact that a lot of men and women who have tried the surgery are satisfied with the outcome. In fact, the latest annual data (2012) released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) have revealed that indeed liposuction remains one of the top five most popular cosmetic surgical procedures. Even if you ask any random kid about cosmetic procedures they know, the kid may likely mention “liposuction” as one of them because of the latter surgery’s widespread media exposure.
Meanwhile, the techniques and technological tools behind the surgery procedure have rendered lipoplasty safer and more efficient than ever. At his Atlanta Surgical Office, Dr. Brian Howard specializes in the non-invasive type of liposuction known simply as SmartLipo. He has spent, and continues to do so, countless hours to perfect his expertise in this special kind of liposuction surgery Atlanta.
Safer & Innovative
Utilizing laser fiber to break up the fat cells, SmartLipo procedure functions the same way as a traditional liposuction does: eliminates stubborn fatty bulges to give you a more proportioned body shape. But then since it’s non-invasive, SmartLipo delivers similar lipo results but with less swelling, less bruising and pain, and a faster recovery time. Furthermore, Dr. Howard performs SmartLipo under local anesthetic, hence you may be able to avoid the extra cost, risk and downtime normally associated with having a general anesthesia. The U.S. FDA has since approved the use of SmartLipo in the removal of fat pockets considered to be unresponsive to exercise and diet routines.
Surgical procedure aside, Dr. Howard is also known for his comprehensive approach to cosmetic surgeries and treatments. He puts premium to your utmost safety and comfort as a patient. Before recommending any procedure (even if not SmartLipo), he will engage you in a thorough discussion about every aspect of your intended procedure as well as your other treatment options. While SmartLipo requires much less discomfort and recovery time than traditional lipo, Dr. Howard will ensure that you are well informed about managing your oral medications to fully relieve you of any possible discomfort.
Dr. Brian Howard is a board-certified plastic surgeon and otolaryngologist with highly specialized skills in performing Smart Liposuction operations.
