Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Eric Chang has been chosen to train other plastic surgeons in the state on the new Smartlipo™ MPX liposuction technique. This new device enables surgeons to perform less-invasive Baltimore liposuction procedures with faster recovery times.
Columbia, Maryland (March 2009) - Smartlipo™ MPX has made its Maryland debut at Columbia Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. The practice's founder, Dr. Eric Chang, has been selected as the exclusive plastic surgeon instructor in Maryland to train other surgeons in this new Baltimore liposuction technique. Dr. Chang's extensive experience performing liposuction makes him an ideal choice for pioneering this new technology, which is being hailed as a more effective method of removing fat cells and creating smoother, firmer-looking results than other liposuction approaches.
"I am thrilled to be introducing Smartlipo MPX technology to other surgeons across the state," says Dr. Chang. "My patients who choose cosmetic surgery in Baltimore, Maryland have already enjoyed the minimized discomfort and recovery time associated with Smartlipo as well as the outstanding results it offers."
As a Stanford-educated plastic surgeon who is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Chang has received thorough training in plastic and aesthetic surgery, and specializes in liposuction and body contouring procedures. Due to his extensive training and experience, Cynosure, the maker of Smartlipo, has selected Dr. Chang to guide other Maryland surgeons in the safe and effective use of the Smartlipo MPX system.
"Baltimore plastic surgery patients choose liposuction for a variety of reasons, so it is very important for each surgeon to understand how to approach those needs in the most effective ways," explains Dr. Chang. "A woman who is interested in correcting her trouble spots through a 'mommy makeover' may have different needs than a post-weight-loss patient who wants to combine liposuction and a tummy tuck. Surgeons today need to know how to use the latest technology to help ensure precise results and minimize recovery time. Smartlipo MPX offers clear advantages in both of these areas."
What Dr. Chang finds most appealing about this system is that it helps him deliver safer and more comfortable procedures. Baltimore liposuction utilizing Smartlipo technology achieves accurate and focused removal of fat cells, stimulates tissue tightening, reduces recovery time and prevents the tissue trauma that creates fluid collection and other factors that lead to postsurgical discomfort.
As Dr. Chang continues to lead the way in the use of Smartlipo, he hopes the new system will help other surgeons continue to advance the quality of care they provide for their patients as well. "Body contouring plastic surgery is about providing highly personalized care and quality results," he says. "I am excited to have a new technology that allows for more pleasing patient results."
