Q.) Do I need to have general anesthesia to have liposuction?

A.) NO! SlimLipo laser assisted liposuction is makes liposuction easier, more effective and safer than ever! Most lasers such as the SmartLipo are much better at heating water than melting fat. The SlimLipo is the only laser anywhere in the world that was designed to melt fat without injuring other tissue. Furthermore, after the fat is melted and removed, your skin will continue to tighten for the next six months which gives you an even better result.

SlimLipo

Liposuction West Palm Beach Wellington Royal Palm Lake Worth Loxahatchee

SlimLipo is a brand new way of doing laser assisted liposuction in West Palm Beach and Wellington for removing unwanted pockets of fat. Dr. Sinclair is a liposuction expert in the West Palm Beach area. This new laser liposuction technology was invented by Palomar Medical. The SlimLipo laser is a device that makes liposuction very easy by using a small clear flexible plastic rod to liquify and melt fat. The rod is connected to a laser that selectively melts fat while preserving and tightening the skin. Most of the other lasers work by boiling water and letting the water heat the fat. The problem is that the hot water can also scald the skin. This is one of the reasons that the SlimLIpo laser liposuction makes liposuction treatments safer. Severe complications with SlimLipo liposuction are very rare. In fact, even minor complications are quite rare with SlimLipo liposuction.

The SlimLipo Laser Liposuction device also delivers a second wavelength which is very good at contracting the loose skin that is left after the fat is melted and removed during the liposuction. By using both wavelenghts simultaneously, the SlimLipo liposuction device is capable of melting fat and contracting tissue at the same time. This makes the liposuction treatment more effective. In the West Palm Beach area, there is no better liposuction!

Even more remarkable is that the SlimLipo Laser Liposuction procedure can be peformed with nothing more than local anesthesia! Patients who undergo the SlimLipo Laser Liposuction procedure are generally able to return to work within 2 days after their liposuction. Bruising and discomfort from the laser liposuction are minimized. We still recommend the use of a compression garment to help maximize your results. These garments are comfortable enough to be worn underneath your regular clothes.

Almost any part of the body that has unwanted pockets of fat can be treated with SlimLipo Laser liposuction. This includes the abdomen, thighs, flanks, upperarms and even the area under the chin. After SlimLipo liposuction treatment, the patients will wear a thin but snug garment to hold the skin against their body. This helps assure that that the newly sculpted body will heal properly. This is a very important part of the liposuction.

Although liposuction is not a substitute for dieting and exercise, liposuction can remove areas of fat that don't respond to diet and exercise. The best results from liposuction are obtained when you have healthy elastic skin that can shrink after surgery. If your skin is too loose, you may need a skin tightening procedure such as a tummy tuck.

In your initial free consultation, Dr. Sinclair will discuss your health, your liposuction treatment goals and evaluate the condition of your skin. Blood tests are usually required before liposuction to make sure you are healthy. If you do need blood tests before your liposuction, we can take care of that for you in our office. Although liposuction is almost never covered by health insurance, the blood tests might be covered. If you have a Health Savings Account, you may be able to use those funds to pay for your liposuction.

You will need to avoid strenuous acitivity for 2 weeks after your liposuction treatment. Although you will not have much discomfort after our liposuction, excessive acitivity can cause swelling. You will need to avoid lifting, stretching and straining until your body has had a chance to heal. Most people can resume normal activity about 2 weeks after liposuction.

Your skin will continue to contract for about 3-6 months after your liposuction treatment. The final result will occur after your skin has finished tightening. The more you wear your compression garment while you are healing, the better your results will be from your liposuction. By following the instructions closely, your liposuction procedure should be easy and provide you with great results!

Our liposuction procedure is not only safe, fast and effective, but it is also very affordable. Financing is available!

This form of liposuction is rapidly becoming the new gold standard for laser assisted liposuction in West Palm Beach.
