Finally Non-Invasive Liposuction Arrives in Canada

Dr Sean Rice is the first Plastic Surgeon to offer SmartLipo™

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 18, 2008) - SmartLipo(TM) is a revolutionary new treatment that uses a laser to melt away fat in troubled areas that do not respond to diet and exercise.

Dr Sean Rice is a Royal College of Canada certified plastic surgeon that practices in Toronto, Canada and is the first plastic surgeon in Canada to offer SmartLipo(TM).

SmartLipo(TM) offers a significantly less invasive technique than conventional liposuction for the permanent destruction of fat cells. The technique involves using a Nd:YAG laser introduced thru a tiny cannula that delivers energy directly to the fat cells causing them to rupture. At the same time the laser coagulates small blood vessels leading to less bruising and swelling. One of the greatest benefits of SmartLipo(TM) is the skin tightening effect. Traditional liposuction relies on the elasticity of ones own skin to tighten itself, now with the aid of the laser we can tighten skin that otherwise may not respond leading to improved results over traditional liposuction.

Because of the minimal trauma and tiny size of the cannula the procedure can be performed under local anaesthesia, therefore reducing the chances of side effects. Usually only one treatment session is required.

SmartLipo(TM) offers the benefit over tradition liposuction in that it can be performed under local anaesthesia, the recovery time is significantly quicker (in our office everyone has returned to work the next day), the laser coagulating the small blood vessels leads to less bruising and swelling. The greatest benefit is the skin tightening effect, this generally leads to improved results over traditional liposuction.
