Smartlipo MPX™

Liposuction is more effective than ever with Smartlipo MPX™, which not only reduces unwanted areas of fat but tightens skin as well for a firm and slim body contour. Smartlipo, available at Columbia Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, is a laser-assisted liposuction procedure that uses laser energy to melt the fat before it is extracted from the body and is often used as an enhancement to traditional tumescent liposuction. Smartlipo is a powerful advancement in laser-assisted liposuction available for women and men considering liposuction in the Baltimore-Washington Corridor.

To get started, you can save $50 on your consultation when you request an appointment with Dr. Eric Chang online. Or, call (410) 740-9330 to schedule your visit.

Dr. Chang of Columbia Aesthetic Plastic Surgery was the first doctor in Maryland to offer Smartlipo MPX. In fact, his practice was selected as the exclusive Smartlipo MPX training center in the state.

Benefits of Smartlipo

Many people who eat right and exercise regularly turn to liposuction as a way to fine-tune their body contours by removing areas of stubborn fat. Laser-assisted liposuction with Smartlipo MPX is faster, more powerful, and can effectively target larger areas than the original Smartlipo technology. It also enhances traditional liposuction in a variety of ways including:

  • Reducing bleeding, swelling, and bruising
  • Tightening skin in treated areas
  • Minimizing discomfort and recovery time

Patients considering liposuction should keep in mind that it is not a substitute for proper diet and exercise. Liposuction is most effective if you are at or near your ideal body weight when you have the procedure performed.

Smartlipo vs Traditional Liposuction

There are many reasons why Smartlipo may be the right choice for you.

  • Surgery is performed under local anesthesia, without the need to recover from general anesthesia.
  • Laser coagulation of blood vessels leads to decreased bruising after surgery and a quicker recovery.
  • Laser energy delivered to the deep skin surface can promote skin tightening.
  • 1 mm laser cannula and micro-liposuction cannulas lead to smaller incisions than what is needed for conventional liposuction.
  • The procedure is safe and effective for focused areas of excess fat, such as the abdomen, waist (love handles), chin, thighs, hips, arms, knees, and male breast.

Your Laser Liposuction Procedure

Laser liposuction melts targeted areas of body fat with a low-energy laser fiber that is inserted through a cannula, which is a thin, hollow tube that breaks up and extracts unwanted fat. The liquefied fat is then suctioned away. In addition to facilitating fat removal, the laser may also be helpful in tightening skin in the treated areas.

During your consultation, Dr. Chang will discuss your cosmetic goals, review your medical history, and examine you to determine if liposuction is right for you. He personalizes each patient's treatment plan to their specific goals and physical attributes to achieve satisfying results. Sometimes, Dr. Chang might suggest other cosmetic procedures such as a facelift or a tummy tuck to be performed in conjunction with or instead of liposuction surgery to give a patient the enhancements they desire. Many women also choose to combine liposuction with breast augmentation to enhance their breasts after pregnancy or major weight loss. If combining procedures is right for you, Dr. Chang will discuss your options during your consultation.

Recovery & Results

Immediately after your liposuction surgery with Smartlipo MPX, treated areas are wrapped in compression garments to minimize swelling and encourage an attractive, compact shape. You will need to have someone drive you home to accompany you after surgery. Because the laser technology reduces bleeding and damage to surrounding tissues, most patients can return to their normal routine after 2 to 3 days of restricted activity, although experiences vary.

After recovery, Dr. Chang's liposuction patients often enjoy a firmer, more sculpted body contour. Results are long lasting, since fat cells do not grow back after liposuction. Be aware that remaining fat cells can enlarge if you do not maintain a healthy diet and continue your exercise regimen.
