Working out and watching what you eat are not always enough to achieve the lean, toned look you desire. If you are like many people, diet and exercise can only go so far towards reducing fatty deposits that may make you feel self-conscious. While liposuction has long been an option to effectively reduce isolated pockets of fat and improve overall shape, Dr. Mathew Mosher was the first plastic surgeon in Western Canada to offer Smartlipo™ at his clinic near Vancouver, BC. This advanced, minimally invasive treatment melts unwanted fat while simultaneously tightening the overlying skin.

Smartlipo TriPlex™ is one of the surgical and nonsurgical options offered by Dr. Mosher that range from the latest innovations to time-proven techniques. He feels that it gives his Vancouver liposuction patients an exciting new choice for the effective reduction of unwanted fat, with quicker recovery and optimal results.

About Smartlipo

Smartlipo TriPlex is a variation on traditional liposuction which incorporates laser energy to liquefy and destroy fat cells prior to suctioning. The tiny laser fibre in the cannula delivers energy directly to the fat cells, causing them to rupture. This approach literally melts away fat in troublesome areas such as the abdomen, flanks, arms, buttocks, hips, thighs, and even under the chin. The laser energy also can cause collagen retraction and tissue tightening, which results in firmer skin in the newly sculpted area. Smartlipo TriPlex remains the leading laser-assisted liposuction technology that has been scientifically proven to reduce recovery, reduce bruising and result in more skin tightening than other liposuction techniques. This technology also has several unique features that greatly improve the safety and accuracy of the laser-assisted liposuction process.

For small areas, the procedure can be done entirely under local anesthesia or multiple areas can be treated under light sedation or light general anesthesia.

SmartLipo is a great option to fine tune stubborn areas of fat, that are resistant to diet and exercise. That being said, SmartLipo still considered surgery.  In order to be considered a candidate surgery, you need to be in optimal health. If you smoke, have any poorly controlled medical conditions or have a Body Mass Index over 33, you may not be a candidate.

Your Smartlipo Procedure

Your procedure will take place in our fully accredited private surgery facility where our professional and qualified staff will make you comfortable and feel secure. For your comfort, our anesthesiologists will administer sedation or light general anesthesia as needed. Dr. Mosher injects the area to be treated with local anesthetic solution, which further aides your comfort as well as assisting with more effective fat reduction.

Using tiny incisions, Dr. Mosher inserts a small tube (cannula) containing a laser fibre which emits any combination of three very powerful and unique light wavelengths. Dr. Mosher will select the wavelength combinations that optimally melts the fat, minimizes bruising and stimulates skin retraction. Once the fat is liquefied, it is gently suctioned away through a small cannula.

Smartlipo Triplex offers a gentler approach to liposuction with faster recovery times, less bruising, less pain and improved skin tightening compared to other liposuction techniques.

Recovery and Results

Smartlipo typically takes 45 to 90 minutes per treatment area. The presence of an anesthesiologist and performing surgery in our fully certified surgery centre greatly improves the safety of your procedure. You will return home after your procedure wearing a compression garment, which will need to be worn for several days to several weeks, depending on the area treated. You will have some swelling and bruising, but rest and limited activity will help these to heal quickly. Dr. Mosher will advise you as to when you can resume regular activities, but most patients find that they can return to driving and light social activities in 1 to 2 days and (non-strenuous) work after 3 to 5 days.

Your results will likely be visible within a week but will continue to improve over several months. The skin tightening effect varies from patient to patient and occurs gradually, with fully realized results after approximately 4 to 6 months. Also, Smartlipo TriPlex can improve shape and skin tone.
