WHY SMARTLIPO? IS IT FOR ME?
If you exercise regularly, eat healthy, stick to a great diet, but still have undesirable fat deposits you can’t get rid of, – SmartLipo is for you. “Muffin top,” “life west,” “love handles,” “bra fat,” – any of these sound familiar? Don’t be discouraged. Many women suffer from one or another area they simply can’t get fixed. SmartLipo does just that: targets the fatty area, removes fat, tightens your skin, gives you the desired look.
Areas to be treated are numbed using local anesthetic, allowing the patient to relax and feel comfortable during entire procedure. Through a tiny incision of 2-3 mm, a laser tip is inserted through which the laser energy is directed toward the fat cells beneath skin surface. As the energy is fired, the fat cells break apart and liquefy. The laser fiber delivers thermal energy directly to fat cells and disrupts the fatty tissue for easy removal. The laser literally melts the fat, which is removed with gentle suction. At the same time, tissue around the area tightens through coagulation, contributing to a smoother shape overall. The laser energy also encourages the growth of new collagen, which tightens skin and improves the overall appearance of the treated area. During the initial days after the procedure, the liquefied fat continues to drain away by body’s natural process. Since incisions are minimal, no stitching is required, leaving patients with almost invisible scarring.
WHAT TO EXPECT AFTER THE PROCEDURE:
The day after the laser liposuction SmartLipo we recommend bathing once or twice a day. You will see results the next day, but the ultimate results (after slight swelling goes away) will be visible in several days. The patient can experience some discomfort the day after procedure, which can be effectively treated with over-the-counter medication. Minor temporary bruising may occur, which typically disappears within 2 to 3 days of treatment. Depending upon the area being treated, our doctor may also prescribe the use of a compression garment to aid in healing and to minimize swelling.
Compression garments can be purchased form reputable sources, and they really help in gluing your skin back to muscles (stomach area, back, other) after the procedure. Once any initial swelling has resolved, the treated area will appear tighter and more toned. The results will continue to improve within the first 6 to 8 weeks following the procedure, as the skin readapts to new curves and outlines. Depending on the area treated, many patients are able to return to work in 24 hours.
what our patients say
"I definitely plan on utilizing VIP MediSpa as much as I can."
"I’d like to say thanks to Dr. Grishkevich and his staff for making my procedure so painless and easy. I am very pleased with the results and still don’t recognize the person standing in the mirror!"
"Great service! Absolutely the best SPA I have visited in years. Very up-to-date equipment, really liked the interior design. I particularly enjoyed the atmosphere created by the gracious hosts and friendly personnel. Great deals/prices for the services, which they provide."
"Thank you all for everything! I will continue to “dance” through life and look as good as I feel!!"
"I just want you all to know how much I appreciate your office and staff. I am doing well – it has been nearly two weeks. I am still sore but the bruising is going away nicely. I am still a little swollen but can definitely see and feel the difference I was hoping for. I thought it was pretty funny when Dr. Max was so candid and said – “I hope you don’t think you will ever have a completely flat tummy…” No, believe me after 5 kids – 4 births – and my mid-life I just don’t want to feel pregnant anymore and that is how I felt. So I already feel better in my clothes and my ego at this stage of my life is good. My emotions are in check right now and I am starting to think about my future as a single, but elderly lady. Thanks so much for the boost. Good work, everyone. Keep it up! I will check in the next time I am in Portland."
"I love it when I look in the mirror now!! The difference is remarkable. I feel that I look natural, but so much better. It is such a joy to come into the spa, the staff is so warm, and make you welcome. You have a lifetime client and friend. Thank you!!"
"Dr. Max and staff are the best! I love the results of SmartLipo so far so good and I will be back for more!"
"Dr. Max, Sonja and the entire staff make my visits feel relaxed and welcoming. I am so happy with my results! Dr. Max is a perfectionist, which is exactly what I wanted. He is caring! Never condescending. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the procedure or Dr. Max to anyone."
"My experience at VIP MediSpa gave me freedom to be the young and healthy me that I feel I am – and to look the part. For the first time in many years I am not ashamed of my body! After years of wishing there was just some way to really be rid of my cellulite, I finally actually achieved what I thought might be impossible, and sometimes it still seems too good to be true. I would do it again in a second. Nothing that I experienced in my mesotherapy procedure was more painful than the years of hiding my body. I would do it again in a second!"
"VIP MediSpa has been wonderful. The Staff are pleasant and very helpful. All my questions were answered to my satisfaction. I’m very happy with the results from all my procedures and can’t wait to do more. Max is great and makes me feel comfortable about my decisions I have made. I recommend VIP to my friends and family."
"I joined the VIP MediSpa during the Grand opening and everyone was so nice! The location and décor are perfect! The service 6 months later is still first rate! I would definitely send my friends and family to them! Thank you so much!"
