This thigh, knee and calf liposuction video is by Dr. Lebowitz at Lebowitz Plastic Surgery, located in Huntington, Long Island NY. This patient’s main concern was diet and exercise-resistant fat of her inner and outer thighs, knees and calves. She requested reduction and contouring of these areas so she could wear more flattering pants and skirts during the spring and summer months.
Each procedure is accomplished under local anesthesia in his Huntington, Long Island office. Dr. Jonathan Lebowitz custom tailors his liposuction procedure to use laser smart liposuction to melt and remove the fat of her thighs, knees and calves. A big advantage of the laser smart liposuction procedure is skin tightening resulting in a smoother contoured result with minimum downtime.
The liposuction procedure involves a combination of three laser wavelengths, using the Smartlipo TriPlex Workstation to gently melt stubborn areas of fat, while tightening the skin of the upper thighs, knees and calves. The first two wavelengths melt and liquefy the deep fat, followed by a second combination to “shrink wrap” the skin for a tighter, contoured and smoother result. After the laser is completed, he uses both liposuction and liposculpture to gently remove the melted fat to complete her new and improved look.
Unlike temporary nonsurgical, dermatological procedures; such as freezing, heating, ultra sound or cooling fat treatments, the fat cells will return to their pre-treatment size within 1-Year. All laser smart liposuction results are 100% permanent, the fact cells will never return or go elsewhere. The laser component causes the skin to continue tightening over 6-to-12 months.
Many of Dr. Lebowitz’s patients also consider liposuction of the abdomen, flanks and back to complete their overall new look.
