Grand Rapids, Michigan Smartlipo Triplex® Laser Liposuction

Smartlipo laser liposuction (or laser lipolysis) is among the most requested cosmetic procedures today. Using highly targeted laser energy, it goes directly to problem areas like the chin, arms, neck, thighs and abdomen and melts away the fat.

When it was introduced several years ago, Smartlipo® signaled a revolution in liposuction. Now, at our Grand Rapids laser liposuction center, Dr. Steven L. Ringler of the Center for Aesthethics and Plastic Surgery, is the first plastic surgeon in Michigan to be able to offer Smartlipo Triplex®, the latest technology in laser lipolysis to liquefy the fat within the fat cells, making it much easier to remove. The Smartlipo MPX® had the benefit of dual wavelengths, which provided tightening of the skin by stimulating collagen.

The new Smartlipo Triplex® introduces a third wavelength, making it 40 times more effective at targeting fat cells than any other laser lipolysis system on the market today. Additionally, it has the added benefit of being able to create a high definition, sculpted look by defining waistlines in women and abdominal muscles in men (six pack). Smartlipo MPX® and Smartlipo Triplex® are the only laser lipolysis systems that offer intelligent delivery systems with built-in safety features for maximizing consistent results.

Benefits of Smartlipo Laser Liposuction at the Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery Grand Rapids Smartlipo clinic

  • Smartlipo allows targeted treatment of hard-to-reach areas because it uses a smaller cannula (the suction tube through which fat cells are removed)
  • Smartlipo laser liposuction is minimally invasive, with much shorter recovery times than traditional liposuction
  • Because fat is liquefied before it is removed, Smartlipo® reduces trauma during the procedure meaning less bruising and swelling
  • With Smartlipo laser liposuction, you get the additional benefit of tighter skin in the areas treated
  • Smartlipo can be used in combination with traditional liposuction when appropriate, and can also be used in facelift procedures where additional neck and chin tightening are desired.
  • Dr. Steven Ringler has many years of experience as board certified plastic surgeon and expertise in liposuction, body-sculpting, and laser surgery techniques.

Who is a good candidate for Smartlipo Laser Liposuction?

If you have an active lifestyle, are in overall good health, and are slightly to moderately overweight, treatment with Smartlipo laser liposuction may be right for you. A consultation with board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Steven Ringler, at the Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery & Smartlipo Laser Liposuction center will help determine whether Smartlipo may be of benefit you. Its important to remember that Smartlipo® alone will not result in a large volumes of fat removal. Instead, the procedure sculpts areas with difficult-to-eliminate fat deposits. If you are looking for more extensive weight loss, Smart Lipo® in combination with tumescent or traditional liposuction may be able to help you achieve your goals. Our Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery laser liposuction center offers a free initial consultation to every new patient to help you to determine what is realistic.

SmartLipo Triplex® Procedure and Recovery

Smartlipo MPX® and Smartlipo Triplex® laser liposuction offer a number of benefits over traditional liposuction, including a faster recovery period (a few days compared with a week), minimal bruising, and firmer skin tone in the treated areas. The Smart Lipo® laser dissolves fat cells while at the same time, coagulating blood vessels. The fat can then be removed with a smaller cannula than used in traditional liposuction, so that trauma to the treated area is greatly reduced. The laser also stimulates collagen contraction to reduce the amount of saggy skin that a traditional liposuction procedure can leave behind. In short, with Smart Lipo®, overall results are better and recovery is faster than with traditional liposuction.
