Types Of Liposuction & Benefits of Lipo!

POSTED ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 04, 2017 AT 3:31 PM by Dr. Roger Bassin

Bassin Center For Plastic Surgery is consistently at the forefront of liposuction advancements. Thanks to technological innovations, there are now revolutionary forms of liposuction available to achieve substantial body contouring results with less downtime than liposuction procedures of the past. Techniques like Aqualipo®, SmartLipo™, and SculpSure™ can remove stubborn fat with precision and sculpt the body using different methods. Below is an overview of the liposuction options offered at our Florida plastic surgery offices!

Aqualipo®

Aqualipo® is a revolutionary water-jet liposuction technique that uses concentrated streams of water to gently flush excess fat cells from the body. Aqualipo® utilizes a local anesthetic, as opposed to general anesthesia. Excess fat is extracted from the body using a tiny cannula and water jet lipo. These minimally invasive techniques result in less bruising and swelling than traditional liposuction. Aqualipo® can target the neck, arms, breasts, midsection, flanks, thighs, and legs.

SmartLipo™

SmartLipo™ laser liposuction is a minimally invasive lipo option that can remove stubborn fat and tighten skin in one procedure. The SmartLipo™ cannula is inserted beneath the skin and sends laser energy to underlying fat cells, effectively liquefying them. These fat cells are then extracted from the treatment area. Heat from the SmartLipo™ laser also stimulates the production of subsurface collagen fibers, leading to improvements in skin structure and firmness. SmartLipo™ patients require a local anesthetic and can treat the abdomen, flanks, breasts, arms, thighs, and legs.

SculpSure™

SculpSure™ non-surgical liposuction can sculpt the body without extensive downtime or recovery. SculpSure™  is designed to treat the arms, stomach, flanks, back, and legs. SculpSure™ uses up to 4 applicators that are placed above the treatment area(s). Hyperthermic laser energy is delivered to areas of stubborn fat cells, loosening them from surrounding tissues. These fat cells are then naturally processed and removed from your body. SculpSure™ treatment can be completed in just 25 minutes and can achieve long-lasting body contouring results.

Dr. Roger Bassin, his doctors, and staff at Bassin Center For Plastic Surgery welcome any questions you may have regarding Aqualipo®, SmartLipo™, and SculpSure™, as well as our other body contouring treatments. You can contact us at 877.333.3223 or request an appointment online for a personal consultation at one of our Florida locations: Melbourne, Orlando, Metro West Orlando, The Villages®.

Smartlipo™ To Shape The Body & Tighten Skin In One Procedure!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, APRIL 12, 2017 AT 2:26 PM by Dr. Roger Bassin

Smartlipo™ can remove unwanted fat, tighten skin, and enhance body contours all in one procedure! Smartlipo™ is a minimally invasive liposuction technique that can slim the body with less downtime and recovery than traditional lipo techniques.

Smartlipo™ uses laser energy to liquefy unwanted fat cells and promote skin tightening to achieve a slimmer, firmer-looking body. Bassin Center For Plastic Surgery offers Smartlipo™ to treat the face, neck, arms, breasts, chest, abdomen, back, flanks, legs, and thighs.

Your Smartlipo™ Procedure

Smartlipo™ laser body sculpting delivers laser energy to stubborn fat cells using a small cannula. The laser cannula liquefies fat cells and removes them from the body to enhance shape.

Laser heat also promotes tissue coagulation and encourages collagen production, which can enhance the firmness and elasticity of your skin.

Unlike traditional liposuction, Smartlipo™ can sculpt and firm the treatment area(s) in one procedure to reduce fat pockets and tighten skin. Smartlipo™ is also a less-invasive technique that results in quicker recovery times for patients.

Your liposuction surgeon can target a variety of areas during your Smartlipo™ procedure to ensure balanced results.

Body Contouring Procedures for Men to Improve Your Physique!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, MARCH 30, 2016 AT 3:13 PM by Dr. Roger Bassin

Did you know that plastic surgery for men is on the rise? More and more male patients are choosing to undergo body contouring and facial rejuvenation procedures to improve their physique. Using the latest body sculpting techniques, surgeons can target troublesome areas of the body to achieve natural-looking results. At Bassin Center For Plastic Surgery in Tampa, we offer various treatments to help sculpt an athletic, lean body, including neck and chin liposuction, male breast reduction, CoolSculpting®, and SculpSure™.

Enhance Jawline Definition!

Patients suffering from excess fat around the chin and neck can undergo liposuction for a defined jawline. Referred to as submental fat, these fat pockets are often caused by weight gain or aging and may contribute to the appearance of a double chin. This condition takes away from the contours of your jaw line. Our liposuction surgeons can target submental fat cells with precision using a variety of different procedures. Kybella™ is a completely non-invasive treatment that can eliminate double chin through strategically-placed injections around the submental area. These injections break down excess chin fat and, over time, your body naturally removes these fat cells from your system. SmartLipo® is a minimally-invasive lipo procedure that selectively removes fat cells around the chin and neck, while also promoting skin tightening for improvements in definition. Aqualipo® can also be used to gently remove fat cells without extensive downtime. Aqualipo® water jet liposuction technology can flush away excess fat to improve facial contours.

Reduce The Size Of Enlarged Breasts!

Enlarged male breasts can take away from a masculine chest and affect self-esteem. This condition, also known as gynecomastia, occurs when enlarged breast tissue forms around the chest, due to genetics, obesity, or medical conditions. A combination of liposuction and male breast reduction surgery can remove and reposition breast tissue to sculpt a defined chest. Aqualipo® is ideal for carefully removing small amounts of fat from the breasts, while gynecomastia surgery can excise and re-drape excess tissue to reduce the size of male breasts.

Melt Belly Fat And Sculpt The Midsection!

Men looking to slim the waistline and eliminate love handles can undergo one of our non-surgical belly fat treatments. CoolSculpting® uses specialized cryolipolysis technology to freeze excess fat around the midsection. These frozen fat cells are naturally eliminated by your body over time, leading to natural-looking results. CoolSculpting® requires no downtime and patients can expect results in the months following their treatment.

SculpSure™ is another non-surgical fat removal treatment that can target the abdomen and flanks. SculpSure™ delivers precise heat energy to excess fat around the midsection. As these fat cells are exposed to heat from the SculpSure™ machine, they begin to separate from surrounding tissue. Eventually, the body processes these fat cells, removing them from your system. SculpSure™ treatment lasts as little as 25 minutes and patients can resume their daily activities immediately.

Dr. Roger BassinDr. Tom Kosowski, and our staff welcome any questions you may have regarding neck and chin liposuction, male breast reduction, CoolSculpting®, and SculpSure™, as well as any of our other procedures. You can contact us at our Melbourne Plastic Surgery office at 1.321.255.0025, our Orlando Plastic Surgery office at 1.407.851.3888, our Tampa Plastic Surgery office at 1.813.872.7800, and our Villages® Plastic Surgery office at 1.877.333.3223, or you may request an appointment online for a personal consultation with either Dr. Bassin or Dr. Kosowski.

With the holiday season past and your New Year’s resolutions fully underway, now is the perfect time to lose the belly fat you gained last year and get your body back.

Oftentimes, even if you manage to lose weight through diet and exercise, your skin may have trouble bouncing back. This lack of skin elasticity, however, can be addressed through SmartLipo. The SmartLipo laser increases the production of collagen, resulting in simultaneous skin tightening and fat melting. This will help reduce the skin sagging commonly seen in traditional liposuction while also eliminating unwanted fat cells. Lose belly fat and achieve smooth, shapely body contours at Bassin Center For Plastic Surgery today!

No Scar for the Summer with Plastic Surgery in Tampa!

POSTED ON WEDNESDAY, MAY 22, 2013 AT 5:32 PM by Dr. Roger Bassin

Diet and exercise take time before results become apparent, and when they are apparent, results often aren’t as noticeable as you had hoped. In these instances, patients turn to plastic surgery to achieve a slimmer figure and more contoured body. Traditionally, patients interested in plastic surgery needed an invasive procedure to remove localized problem areas of stubborn fat from the stomach, flanks, thighs, hips, or bra bulge. At Bassin Center for Plastic Surgery Tampa, Dr. Roger Bassin and Dr. Rigo Mendoza offer the most advanced, least invasive, no scar methods of body contouring available, including Liposonix, Cellulaze, and Aqualipo, so you can enjoy a slim, beach body in time to also enjoy the summer sun.

Liposonix: Unlike traditional body sculpting techniques, Liposonix’s high-intensity, focused ultrasound energy penetrates the skin to the targeted fat layer beneath without harming surrounding tissue and skin cells. Patients often return to their daily activities the same day as surgery. The procedure only lasts one hour, and after only one treatment, patients will achieve a shapelier, sleeker figure in 8 to 12 weeks. In addition to its speedy treatment and results, Liposonix in Tampa is also non-invasive, rendering scalpels, stitches, and scars unnecessary.  

Cellulaze: A large portion of the population is concerned about Cellulite. Women store fat in pockets beneath the skin, and thick bands of connective tissue prevent exercise and dieting from impacting the pocket-marked bumps and dimples commonly known as cellulite. If you’re concerned about the appearance of cellulite, contact Dr. Roger Bassin, a Premier Cellulaze Provider! Cellulaze in Tampa targets the three main structural problems linked to the formation of cellulite— thin skin, pockets of fat, and connective tissue bands— using only a small micro-incision the size of a pen tip.

Aqualipo: Visionary advances in liposuction technology now provide a gentler liposuction technique, known as Aqualipo, to minimize bleeding, swelling, and ultimately downtime compared to traditional methods. Aqualipo utilizes water-jet technology to loosen fat cells before removing them from the body, limiting the damage to surrounding tissues, muscles, and blood vessels. The fat cells that Aqualipo removes are undamaged and can be used during a fat transfer procedure known as NaturalFill, if so desired.

Roger Bassin, M.D., Rigo Mendoza, M.D., and their staff look forward to discussing any questions or concerns you may have about Liposonix, Cellulaze, and Aqualipo in Tampa or any of our minimally invasive, no scar procedures. You can contact us at our Melbourne Plastic Surgery office at 1.321.255.0025, our Orlando Plastic Surgery office at 1.407.851.3888, our Tampa Plastic Surgery office office at 1.813.872.7800, and our Villages Plastic Surgery office at 1.877.333.3223, or you may request an appointment online for a personal consultation with either Dr. Bassin or Dr. Mendoza.
