“No Matter How Much I Diet Or Exercise, My Stomach Is Still Too Fat!”

A common complaint after liposuction is about the extra, loose, saggy skin, generally on the stomach, thighs or arms. This is more likely to occur when there is poor quality skin (e.g., stretch marks) or too much skin to begin with. Loose skin can make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. However, unlike all other methods of Liposuction, Smartlipo TriplexTM is the only one that includes skin tightening. The tightening of the skin is done during the same procedure, after completing liquefaction of the fat by a specific laser beam.  It heats the under-surface of the skin and causes it to shrink and to generate collagen.

SmartlipoTM Triplex is the only liposuction procedure that provides  ALL of the following:

  • Non-surgical intervention
  • Is a comfortable procedure
  • Very minimal risk
  • Done under local anesthesia
  • One to two day recovery
  • Only minimally bruising
  • Permanent fat removal
  • Provides optimal body sculpting
  • Causes skin tightening


What the “Triplex” Stands For?

There are three laser wavelengths unique to this system:

1064nm laser – minimizes bruising

1320nm laser – causes skin tightening and thickening

1440nm laser – disrupts fat


I needed to skim some inches off before my wedding (fitting in a dress you ordered a year before is hard!). Dr. Shapira was able to sculpt my body in a way I had never thought possible. The lower belly pouch and love handles, I had been gifted with from my mother, was decreased in size and my pants fit so much better! Plus, I looked really good on the honeymoon!  – Danielle
