Dr. Hollis is currently the only Cosmetic and Plastic Surgeon on Vancouver Island offering Smartlipo™ procedures. Having had extensive experience in liposuction, Dr. Hollis is very pleased to introduce and provide the latest technology for successful body sculpting to his clients.
Smartlipo™ has been shown to involve less pain, less bruising and swelling and provide a faster recovery time than traditional liposuction.
WHAT IS SMARTLIPO™?
Smartlipo™ is a medical device designed exclusively to perform laser-assisted lipolysis, commonly referred to as laser liposuction. A very thin tube containing the Smartlipo™ laser fiber is inserted in the targeted fatty areas through a small incision. The laser fiber delivers thermal energy directly to fat cells and disrupts the fatty tissue for easy removal. The laser literally melts the fat, which is removed with gentle suction. At the same time, tissue around the area tightens through coagulation, contributing to a smoother shape overall.
HOW DO I KNOW IF SMARTLIPO™ IS RIGHT FOR ME?
The best candidates for Smartlipo™ are men and women who are not significantly overweight but have accumulated fat deposits — such as love handles, flabby upper arms, excess neck or facial fat or fat on the lower torso. A consultation with Dr. Hollis can provide you with the best information.
WHAT AREAS OF THE BODY CAN BE TREATED?
Smartlipo™ is ideal for the neck, jaw line, arms, bra fat, love handles, post-pregnancy skin laxity, saddlebags, knees and enlarged male breasts.
