Seattle, Washington (August, 2008) – For decades, women and men in Seattle have chosen liposuction to improve their body contour. But now they have a new option that is less invasive and requires less downtime: Smartlipo™ MPX. Puget Sound Plastic Surgery is pleased to be the first practice in the Pacific Northwest to incorporate this exciting technology into its body contouring treatment options.
“The Smartlipo MPX laser liposuction device is a true advance for women and men considering plastic surgery in the Seattle / Tacoma area,” says Dr. Braden Stridde, a board-certified plastic surgeon and Medical Director of Puget Sound Plastic Surgery. “This innovative dual laser technology allows us to achieve remarkable body sculpting with shortened procedure times, reduced downtime, and enhanced skin tightening.”
The Seattle liposuction surgeon continues to build upon his experience with earlier generations of Smartlipo. Patients have turned Smartlipo into a nationwide sensation because the procedure is so effective at removing diet-resistant pockets of fat in body areas such as the abdomen, hips, thighs, upper arms, and chin.
“In my experience, I’ve found that Smartlipo is particularly helpful for a person who desires subtle contouring of areas that are too small for traditional methods,” adds Dr. Stridde. “And laser liposuction also helps patients who want to refine the results from a previous liposuction procedure. People appreciate that this is a more gentle procedure with a more comfortable recovery period – but most of all they are highly satisfied with the results.”
During the procedure, the Smartlipo laser probe disrupts targeted fat cells while causing minimal disruption to surrounding tissue, reducing post-surgical bleeding a bruising. Laser liposuction can be completed in one to two hours depending on the size of the treatment area. Most patients are back to work and their regular activities just a few days after the procedure.
“We feel that the latest generation of laser liposuction in Seattle will usher in a new era of body sculpting,” says Dr. Stridde. “I look forward to helping men and women who are bothered by love handles, belly rolls, or other fat deposits that are standing in the way of a smoother body contour.”
