SmartLipo Laser Body Contouring Palo Alto


You’ve tried dieting. You’ve tried exercise. But parts of your body have simply refused to tone up. Dr. Michael Dean Vistnes, a leader in the Bay Area and San Francisco in liposuction and plastic surgery, believes that our Palo Alto SmartLipo laser body sculpting procedure can change all that. The Smart Lipo Triplex procedure permanently melts away fat in just one treatment. This revolutionary new treatment literally melts away fat in trouble spots like your abdomen, thighs, arms, neck, love handles, and male chest (gynecomastia).

SmartLipo is designed to improve shape, reduce cellulite, tighten loose skin, and permanently destroy fat cells. Dr. Vistnes offers SmartLipo in the Bay Area because it is less invasive than regular liposuction, has a quicker recovery time, and it gives great results.

How does SmartLipo work?

SmartLipo is a combination of three different highly calibrated lasers that are introduced into the fat layer under the skin with a tiny cannula or tube. Dr. Vistnes will make a tiny skin incision to place a tiny tube containing the laser fiber. This tube or cannula, is moved gently under the skin as the laser ruptures and liquefies the fat cells. The liquefied fat is then drained off and the fat permanently removed.

The advanced lasers used with Smartlipo have the added benefit of sealing blood vessels in the area to reduce swelling, bleeding, and bruising for a faster recovery. The lasers in SmartLipo also stimulate the production of collagen to tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of loose skin that can be seen with traditional liposuction procedures.

The San Jose Smartlipo procedure usually takes only an hour or two, depending on the number of areas being treated. One to two days of rest is ideal, and in almost all cases only a single treatment is required to achieve optimal results.

Who is a candidate for SmartLipo in Palo Alto, San Francisco, San Jose and the Bay Area?

Our liposuction and SmartlLipo procedures are not for everyone. Still, liposuction is the number one cosmetic procedure in the United States and SmartLipo has become the most effective way to safely remove unwanted fat. SmartLipo is ideal for people who lead a healthy lifestyle, but are having difficulty eliminating excess fat through diet and exercise. Most patients who get great results from SmartLipo are less that 25 pounds from their ideal weight. SmartLipo is a safe and affordable way to achieve a pleasing physical appearance and eliminate extra pounds permanently. Dr. Vistnes will review both the benefits and the risks of SmartLipo with each patient during your consultation appointment and educate you thoroughly on your options for body contouring.

Recovery and Results

Liposuction using the Smartlipo laser requires minimal recovery time and causes only minimal discomfort. Most patients will be off prescription pain medicines in a few days and may be back doing light exercise in 7-10 days. After surgery, Dr. Vistnes provides compression garments that will encourage healing and help minimize swelling. You will be sent home very soon after your procedure. The results of our Smartlipo in Palo Alto body contouring are permanent. Once fat cells are removed through liposuction, they will not return or grow again. SmartLipo can reshape your body and reshape you life. Now is the time to take the first step and find out more by calling Dr. Michael Dean Vistnes for a complimentary consultation.
