Dr. Breitbart offers SmartLipo Triplex™, the latest advance in liposuction. SmartLipo Triplex™ uses laser technology to remove unwanted excess fat and tighten skin. It is ideal for many areas, including the abdomen, “love handles,“ chest, and neck, the most commonly treated areas in men. This procedure works particularly well in men to treat the stubborn areas of fat of the abdomen, “love handles,” and neck, which can be present despite diet and exercise. Other areas which can be treated include the thighs, knees, and arms.
As one of the most experienced SmartLipo™ surgeons in the New York area, including Long Island and Manhattan, Dr. Breitbart has been performing liposuction for over 20 years, and for the past several years has been using SmartLipo™ as his liposuction technique of choice. SmartLipo™ effectively liquefies fat for removal, and tightens the skin as well. This technology allows Dr. Breitbart’s patients to recover faster and experience considerably less bruising and swelling than with traditional liposuction. SmartLipo™ patients are typically back to work within as little as one or two days following the procedure.
SmartLipo Triplex™ works by first using a tiny tube that is inserted through the skin into the fat. Laser energy is then delivered through the tube to the fat and overlying skin, causing the fat to liquefy and the overlying skin to tighten. A small liposuction tube then removes the unwanted fat, resulting in a much improved contour with tightening of the skin.
By using a laser, skin tightening can be accomplished to a better degree than with traditional liposuction. Furthermore, since the laser coagulates loose ends of the small blood vessels as it melts the fat, there is less bruising than with traditional liposuction, as well as less swelling and a quicker recovery time. Dr. Breitbart uses the latest SmartLipo Triplex™ device to deliver superior results.
SmartLipo™ can be used to treat all areas of the body for which liposuction is indicated, and is particularly advantageous in treating areas with some skin looseness, such as the abdomen, thighs, upper arms, love handles, and neck.
For most patients, local anesthesia alone can be used. This can be supplemented with sedation anesthesia being given by a board certified anesthesiologist if the patient desires.
All procedures are performed by Dr. Breitbart in his office surgery center, which is certified by the American Association for the Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilites (AAAASF).
