  • ADDITIONAL INFO
  • Dr. LaTrenta offers liposuction and SmartLipo to permanently eliminate fat from trouble spots like the abdomen, buttocks, thighs and neck.

    Liposuction is a body sculpting procedure performed in the office under intravenous sedation in which localized deposits of fat in one or more areas of the body are removed through tiny incisions using a narrow tube or cannula.

    Dr. LaTrenta more often recommends SmartLipo, a less invasive body sculpting procedure that uses a high-powered laser to remove fat while also tightening the skin.  Most patients do not require intravenous sedation for SmartLipo.

    SmartLipo body contouring can help avoid the need for more complex surgical procedures such as face lift, neck lift, thigh lift, tummy tuck and arm lift, which makes it extremely popular with our patients.

  • You'll definitely want to consider liposuction or SmartLipo if you are within 20-30 pounds of your ideal weight, yet still have localized deposits of excess fat and subcutaneous tissue or desire enhanced body contouring in the following regions:

    Cheeks, jowls and neck

    Upper posterior arms

    Breast or chest areas, especially in men (Gynecomastia)

    Upper back and brassiere line

    Abdomen and waist

    Hips and buttocks

    Inner and outer thighs

    Ankles

  • Smartlipo has a faster recovery time than traditonal liposuction.

    You will have pain and soreness for a day or two in the areas where liposuction has been performed.

    You will feel better in about a week and you should be back at work within a few days following your surgery.

    The stitches are removed one week after surgery.

    You may need to wear a protective compression garment for several weeks after the procedure.

    Most people are able to return to exercise 7 to 10 days after the procedure.

  • During traditional liposuction, the patient is usually placed under intravenous sedation. A small device is inserted and connected to very strong vacuum and the excessive fat layer that lies deep beneath the skin is recontoured by pushing and pulling the cannula through the fat layer, thereby breaking up the fat cells and suctioning them out. 

    During Smartlipo, the patient is usually under local anesthesia while a carefully calibrated laser is used to liquefy fat deposits through the top layers of the skin. The laser "melts" fat cells, and Dr. LaTrenta removes the resulting oily, liquid substance through a tiny incision in the skin.
