This 40-year-old female was in good shape but wanted to reduce her stomach pooch. She had heard about a type of laser-assisted liposuction near Baltimore called Smartlipo MPX™ and wondered if it would work for her. So, she called Dr. Chang to set up a consultation and learn more.
At their meeting, Dr. Chang listened as she explained her dissatisfaction with her abdomen. She mentioned that she did not have a lot of time available for recovery and wanted a minimal-downtime procedure. Because she needed only minor refinements and was in good shape overall, he agreed that she was a good candidate for Smartlipo. He explained that the procedure would require only 1 or 2 days of recovery time. She decided that Smartlipo was a good fit for her lifestyle, and she made an appointment for treatment.
She was given a local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort. Dr. Chang then inserted a thin cannula through very short incisions in her abdomen. A laser fiber at the end of the cannula liquefied unwanted fat cells while simultaneously stimulating collagen production. In about an hour, the procedure was over and she was able to go home.
Now, her stomach looks much flatter and more toned. She is no longer embarrassed by her stomach and feels very confident and self-assured. She is happy with her outcome and glad she chose Dr. Chang as her Baltimore area plastic surgeon.Surgeon: Eric Chang, MD
