What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction (lipoplasty) is a procedure that can help contour your body by removing unwanted fat and inches from certain parts of the body, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, arms and chin. Liposuction is not a replacement for diet or exercise, but it helps selected patients get rid of stubborn areas that do not respond to other weight loss methods. With weight loss, the fat cells in your body only shrink - they do not disappear. Liposuction surgery actually removes the fat cells from your body.
- Ultrasound assisted lipoplasty
- The tumescent technique
- Power assisted lipoplasty
- Smart lipo
Dr. Greenberg utilizes a unique combination of tumescent liposuction, along with external ultrasound and power assisted liposuction. When used together, these methods provide the patient with a smoother contour and a quick recovery, with minimal pain or bruising. There will be a noticeable difference in your body contour almost immediately after liposuction surgery and a small amount of swelling that will continue to subside for a few months after. Your new contour will remain permanent as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle. If you gain weight after your liposuction surgery, the weight will distribute itself evenly throughout your body and will not settle in the same problem areas.

What is Smart Lipo?
Smart lipo is a procedure to remove fat cells from your body. It is one of the newest technologies offered by Dr. Stephen Greenberg.
Smart lipo is virtually painless and highly effective at removing unwanted body fat. Smart lipo uses a laser to eliminate these cells. The laser can easily differentiate between fat cells and other tissue such as nerves, blood vessels, muscles, tendons, etc. Once the smart lipo laser dissolves the fat cells, they are simply suctioned out of the body. Because of the innovative technology behind smart lipo, there is often less scarring and a quicker recovery time that with liposuction.
Dr. Greenberg believes it is important that his patients fully understand the procedure and its effects. Contact Dr. Greenberg's office to set up a complimentary consultation about smart lipo, and find out if it's the best procedure for your individual needs.
