"Warning: long post I call my cancer diagnosis “the gift that keeps on giving”. When I was referred to Dr. Walters, I had gone through 8 surgeries and was experiencing a 4-way contraction on the right side as a result of radiation after reconstruction. This caused me to be in pain 24 hours a day. Dr. Walters gave me hope that I could live without that pain and he did a fat transfer from my stomach to make a new breast. The pain was gone. This past November I had the second phase of the surgery which was to give me symmetry, to reconstruct the nipples which were misshapen, and to transfer fat to give fullness where needed. The surgery was a success for me. I can look at myself in the mirror and I am okay with what I see now. I live two and a half hours from Dr. Walters’ offices. Dr. Walters and his staff were kind, responsive, and accommodating to my needs to say the least. My questions which were numerous were answered in a timely manner. During difficult times, Dr. Walters was able to see me quickly and he was willing to discuss options by phone. I am a happy patient and at every visit I was asked if I was happy with the results. I can say that I am very pleased and happy with my results and with the care I was given by Dr. Walters and all of his staff!"- D.B. / Google / May 29, 2019
Liposuction isn't a weight loss solution. You will see a remarkable decrease in your problem areas that typically don't respond well to exercise and diet changes, but it is important that you don't rely completely on the surgical procedure for weight loss or management. If you are healthy enough for traditional liposuction, you are probably a great candidate for Smartlipo as well. Those most likely to benefit from Smartlipo fit the following criteria:
- Are in good overall health
- Remain within 25 pounds of their goal weight
- Have realistic ideas about the outcome of the surgery
- Eat a healthy diet and maintain an exercise routine
Much like traditional liposuction, Smartlipo requires the use of incisions and a fat suctioning device called a cannula. At the time of the surgical procedure, Dr. Walters will push the laser handpiece around the treatment area beneath the skin. As the fat cells come into contact with the beams of the laser, they will swell and liquefy. At this time, Dr. Walters will extract the liquefied fat with the cannula. The laser Smartlipo also encourages the production of collagen, which tones and tightens the skin during recovery.
What to Expect
Even though the Smartlipo surgery is minimally invasive, it should still be completed in a fully accredited surgery center. The anesthesia used for your Smartlipo procedure will depend upon the areas to be treated. The procedure will last about an hour per area. Upon the completion of the surgery, you should prepare for a bit of swelling, bruising, and discomfort. These side effects are standard and will most likely fade in the coming weeks. Full results will be obvious within about six weeks following surgery.
