The latest advancement in liposuction

What is better than liposuction surgery? Liposuction with adjunct SmartLipo technology!

Sometimes, you can follow a healthy diet, exercise regularly and still not be able to get rid of stubborn pockets of fat. Don’t beat yourself up over it! Instead, reach out to Union / Essex County plastic surgeon Dr. Erwin Bulan to learn more about liposuction.

Lipoplasty, or liposuction surgery, is an effective way for Dr. Bulan to remove unwanted localized fat deposits from under the skin. Not only is Dr. Bulan highly experienced with liposuction plastic surgery, he also proudly offers the latest technological advancement in liposuction technology: SmartLipo.

Liposuction 101

Dr. Bulan usually performs tumescent lipoplasty. This means that the plastic surgeon injects a tumescent solution into the targeted region prior to removing the unwanted fat. The tumescent solution is comprised of saline solution (i.e., sterile saltwater) and a local anesthetic that makes blood vessels constrict. This causes the targeted area to swell and become firm, greatly reducing bleeding in the area.

After making a miniscule incision in each treated area, the surgeon inserts a cannula (a thin, hollow tube) into the targeted region, which he uses to eliminate the unwanted fat. Our experienced New Jersey surgeon can also enhance the basic liposuction procedure using techniques such as ultrasound energy, power-assisted vibrations or SmartLipo laser energy. With liposuction, Dr. Bulan can treat several areas of the body at once.

Are You a Good Candidate for SmartLipo?

At Bulan Plastic Surgery in New Jersey we strive to do our best to make sure you are well informed of each cosmetic procedure we offer. Here are a few characteristics that make up a good candidate for our Smartipo procedure:

  • Good overall health
  • Typically nor more than 25 pounds over targeted body weight
  • Realistic expectations
  • Candidate wishes to target weight in midsection (love handles), lower back, hips and thighs

What is Smart Lipo?

Laser liposuction, also known as SmartLipo, is performed by inserting a thin tube containing a laser fiber into the targeted fat removal area. The fibers deliver thermal energy to the fat cells in the treated area, essentially melting the targeted fat cells. Dr. Bulan then removes the melted fat with gentle suction. In addition, the thermal energy causes the surrounding tissue to coagulate, contributing to a smoother shape throughout the treated area.

Ensuring the Best SmartLipo Results

The SmartLipo procedure involves sophisticated technology that should only be used by a highly qualified, board-certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. Bulan. Some general surgeons, dermatologists or even aestheticians may claim to be experienced with advanced SmartLipo technology, but unless a surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) you should be skeptical of his or her claims. The only way to minimize liposuction risks and maximize your aesthetic results is to enlist the services of a reputable, ABPS-certified plastic surgeon.

Not only is Dr. Bulan board certified, but he has been recognized in the field of plastic surgery by New Jersey Family magazine. The Medical Society of New Jersey also honored him with the Physicians’ Recognition Award, so you can rest assured that he is a superior plastic surgeon who is well-qualified to perform your SmartLipo procedure.
