The following 4 photos show a young mother who can not lose her moomy pouch, despite diet and exercise. These photos were taken before Smartlipo and the following day after Smarlipo of her lower abdomen.
BEFORE SMART LIPO
As you can see, this patient was very obese and could not lose the fat by exercise or diet. We decided to "debulk" the fat, thereby allowing her to exercise and begin a fat lose program. The photo below shows how she looked immediately after Smartlipo. She continues to do well, and each month the abdomen in shrinking and the loose skin is tighening. Because we removed the fat cells, this area will not ever look like this again.
This patient has a panis or loose skin which overhangs because of the excess fat. In the early days of Smartlipo, we were not sure that the procedure would shrink the panis and that a panectomy or surgical removal of the excess skin would be necessary after a year. It has turned out that many patients do not require the panectomy because the Smartlipo enhances skin shrinkage.
IMMEDIATELY AFTER SMARTLIPO OF THE THIGHS
As you can see from the photo, we are in the Smartlipo room and have just finished the procedure. Over the course of several months, the skin got tighter. I told her before the procedure that the expected outcome would be to look better in her clothes, not a bikini. She was very happy with the results, looks great in her clothes and I am pleased to say, she is wearing shorts again!
BEFORE SMARTLIPO OF THE NECK
My patient complained of a "Turkey Neck" but did not want surgery or the time down of a surgical procedure. We performed Smartlipo of the neck in my office, with the procecedure taking about 1/2 hour. He did not complain of pain except he was forced to listen to my corny jokes and signing.
IMMEDIATELY AFTER SMARTLIPO OF THE NECK
She saw instant results and was extremely pleased with her neck. Please note that it takes a full one year to see the final results. Review my video on Smartlipo
My patient in this photo shows deep wrinkles in the forehead area. These wrinkles are caused by strong forehead muscles. The wrinkles are actually vallleys between the muscles. So, the stonger and bigger the muscles, the deeper the wrinkles. See my video on Botox.
This same patient shows the dreaded "11's" or between the eye brow wrinkles. These wrinkles are my most requested lines to fix. Often caused by squinting to see better, these muscles get large with the resultant deep valleys between. See my video on Botox.
AFTER BOTOX INJECTION
The Botox injection caused these muscles to weaken and atrophy. The result is flattening the muscles (or "mountains"), thereby eliminating the valleys or wrinkles. Botox typically keeps the muscles weak for 3-4 months. The most common mistake my patients make is to see me for another injection after the muscles have become strong again (and the wrinkles deep again). It is better to keep the muscles weak so eventually Botox injections can last longer. See my video on Botox
My patient has prominent lines below his cheeks and by his nose (Nasial Labial Lines). This is one of the signs of aging. As we age, the fat pad that was under our eyes begins to move down the face because the underlying bone slowly collapses. The line becomes pronounced because the fat pad now creates a ridge with a resultant adjacent deep line.
Thermage tightens the skin by using radio frequency to resotre and rebuild collagen. The results are impressive as seen below.
