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.
