The Importance of Skin Tightening in Liposuction
During drastic weight loss, both organic and through cosmetic procedure, the skin begins to sag. As people age the elasticity of their skin decreases, meaning that it cannot retake its original form when fat is gained or lost underneath it. Certain liposuction procedures simply extract fat, leaving the skin left hanging loosely. At Advanced Concepts in Plastic Surgery (ACPS), Dr. K uses a state of the art Smartlipo Triplex system to ensure that the skin is able to maintain elasticity and stay stretched tightly around the body. Skin tightening is overlooked too often during liposuction operations, though it can drastically alter the satisfaction of patients.
The SmartLipo Triplex system incorporates three separate lasers; one laser to melt fat, one to minimize bruising in the affected area, and the third is aimed upwards at the underside of the skin to help stimulate collagen in order to aid skin tightening.
When considering liposuction, patients should consider what type of liposuction will be performed. The average system simply removes fat in its current state, while more advanced liposuction procedures use tools that melt fat in order to remove it through smaller incisions and cannulas. Most systems are simply weight loss procedures, and they do not consider what will happen to the skin after the procedure is over. When patients are left with flaps of skin hanging from the arms or around the stomach, they are unhappy with their results. Dr. K aims to make the patient happy by giving them the body they want, and since he is the only cosmetic surgeon in the greater Sacramento area to offer this advanced procedure it is safe to say he is also the best in the area.
Skin tightening may be an afterthought for most cosmetic surgeons, or perhaps it is purposefully left out of liposuction procedures in order to keep clients coming back for follow up operations. At Advanced Concepts in Plastic Surgery, not only can patients lose the stubborn fat they have been targeting for so long, but they can maintain or improve the firmness and tightness of skin. This rejuvenated skin often makes patients feel and look younger for years to come. For Dr. K, the most rewarding part of being a cosmetic surgeon is seeing the smiling faces of satisfied customers as they take that first look in the mirror, seeing themselves has they had only imagined; until now.
