Several scientific breakthroughs in recent years have paved the way for new treatment options for patients seeking to improve the contours of the face and body. The Pennsylvania Centre for Plastic Surgery, helmed by Dr. Scott Brenman, has added four new treatment options for patients seeking to improve their quality of life through aesthetics treatments.
Liposuction is a cornerstone of Dr. Brenman’s body sculpting options for patients seeking to improve areas of the body that haven’t responded to diet and exercise. New treatment techniques have improved the precision physicians of Dr. Brenman’s caliber are able to employ for greater success in outcomes. They reduce recovery times and tissue trauma, so patients see faster results once swelling subsides. Patients are also able to return to work faster than ever before.
One of these advancements in liposuction is SmartLipo. This laser-assisted liposuction procedure involves a laser fiber inside a thin tube, which is then inserted into fatty tissues of the treatment area. The purpose is fat cell disruption by thermal energy, which liquefies the fat for gentler suction removal and less tissue trauma. Thermal heat also aids in blood coagulation and tightens surrounding tissues for smoother, more complete liposuction results. SmartLipo requires only local anesthesia for patient comfort, so it’s far easier to recover from, and results show sooner, generally in about 1 week. Most patients who have SmartLipo are able to return to work 2-3 days after their treatment.
Cellulaze™ is a different kind of contouring treatment that takes aim specifically at cellulite. Cellulite is a particular presentation of fat due to fibrous bands called septae that connect the skin to underlying muscles. When fat cells between these fibers are compressed, they bulge up while the septae pull down on the skin. This results in cellulite’s signature “orange peel” texture. 80% of women and 10% of men suffer with cellulite, which doesn’t respond to diet and exercise because this type of fat isn’t used by the body as fuel. Cellulaze™ is a two-pronged approach to correct both the fat layer and the fibrous septae. A catheter containing a laser fiber is inserted directly beneath the skin where the thermal energy affects fat cells and releases the septae. Fat cell membranes are disrupted and removed naturally by the body, and the skin no longer dimples because the restrictive hold the septae had is broken. Cellulaze™ also stimulates fibroblasts, which produce collagen, to strengthen and support the skin in place of the septae.
Finally, PrecisionTx® is a treatment specifically designed to sculpt small areas of the body, like the lower face, jawline, neck, and upper arms. This laser treatment requires no surgery to complete, so recovery is remarkably quick. The laser fiber inside a cannula delivers 1440 nm thermal energy to improve skin quality, stimulate collagen production, and disrupt fat cells to facilitate cellular death. The 1440 nm wavelength is highly absorbed by water, which thickens and tightens skin, rebuilds skin’s collagen support, and slim down the fat layer responsible for jowls and double chin. It produces a more sculpted jawline, slimmer neck, and better, more elastic skin for a more youthful appearance.
The Pennsylvania Centre for Plastic Surgery is committed to bringing the latest advancements to patients for non-invasive contouring treatments, making these 4 new treatment options a natural fit for the practice. Patients can achieve the physique or facial contours they want for overall improved quality of life and boosted confidence. Dr. Brenman’s purposeful approach to providing world-class treatment is what makes The Pennsylvania Centre for Plastic Surgery a cut above the rest.
