Dr. Nadiv Shapira, a board-certified physician, is an authority in fat disorder diseases. He has been doing SmartLipo laser procedures since acquiring the newest most advanced version of laser liposuction, the SmartLipo Triplex® laser in 2012. His expertise comes from years of experience and precise skill developed throughout his 25 years as a cardiac surgeon. Now, as a fat disorder specialist, women travel from all over the U.S. to have their fat removed by him to help them with Lipedema, a fat disorder. Those of us without the disease, but who want to have stubborn, unwanted fat removed for personal reasons, are fortunate to have this compassionate, experienced surgeon here in the Delaware Valley.
Smartlipo Triplex® is a minimally invasive, laser liposuction treatment. It is a one time, in office procedure. Local anesthesia is used and you are awake during the procedure. A small laser fiber is inserted under the skin and the energy from the laser permanently destroys the fat cells. Unlike any other fat reduction treatment, this procedure also tightens the remaining loose skin. Several areas of the body can be treated at once; therefore, only one procedure is required. Down time is minimal and you can be back to your normal routine in 2-3 days. Temporary bruising and/or tenderness that might occur lasts only from one day to a week or two.
Reasons why you should choose SmartLipo Triplex® for Liposuction?
- Done under local anesthesia
- 2-day average recovery period
- Minimal bruising
- Results in immediate, permanent fat removal
- Can be done on all parts of your body
- Provides optimal sculpting (capable of removing more in some areas, less in others)
- Tightens the skin
- Is minimal risk
SmartLipo Triplex is the only Liposuction procedure that provides all of the above!
Why is SmartLipo Smarter than Traditional Liposuction?
Dissatisfaction after traditional liposuction is common due to some remaining loose saggy skin, generally at the stomach, waist, thighs, or arms. This is more likely to occur when there is too much skin or the quality of the skin is not ideal (e.g., with stretch marks). After undergoing traditional liposuction, loose saggy skin or large scars can make you feel unhappy and self-conscious. You may end up trading extra fat with either a big scar from a tummy tuck or loose saggy skin from a traditional liposuction. SmartLipo Triplex however, is the only method of Liposuction that, in addition to fat removal, does tighten the skin and does not leave large unsightly scars. One of the three laser beams in the SmartLipo Triplex which Dr. Shapira uses is specifically aimed to heat the under-surface of the skin and cause it to generate collagen and shrink and thicken the skin.
