Reporters Allison Adato and Nancy Matsumoto track the progress of an actual Smartlipo patient. Colleen Donovan said that despite working out with a trainer three times a week she had resigned herself to the idea that her inner thighs would always touch. That is until she discovered Smart Lipo, the new laser liposuction that is sweeping the country.
This article focuses on the less invasive aspect of Smart Lipo. The technique discussed involves no suction at all and allows the fat that has been liquefied to be absorbed by the lymph system like the body’s other metabolic by-products.
“Since there is no need for a large cannula to suction out solid fat, the incisions are much smaller and do not require stitches”.
Reporter Suzanne Rozdeba looks at the new Smart-Lipo procedure, and which stars are secretly having it done. Demi Moore, Star Jones Reynolds, and The Rock are among the names mentioned in her article.
“Lunchtime Lipo”, as she calls it, is sweeping the Hollywood A-list. “It only takes about 20 minutes and you can drive yourself home”.
An article contrasting the new Smart Lipo procedure with older liposuction techniques such as SAL (Suction assisted liposuction), PAL (Power assisted liposuction) and UAL (Ultrasonic assisted liposuction), and Tumescent (or wet Liposuction).
The general conclusion is that some doctors resist newer techniques due to the high cost of the equipment (lasers), which can cost tens of thousands of dollars. So the newest procedures are performed by a relatively small number of progressive doctors who are willing to risk the financial investment in an effort to provide better result for their patients.
Liposuction is not a single procedure but rather a general term for a collection of procedures that use similar but different techniques.
There is Smartlipo, Tumescent Lipo, Liposculpture, Vaser Liposelection, Body Jet Liposuction, Nutational Infrasonic Lipo. And then there are other procedures that sound like liposuction and have similar goals like Lipodissolve, Mesotherapy, Zerona, & Cryolipolisis.
Some of these procedures are very effective. Others are not very effective. And some of these procedures are outlawed in certain states because of the harm they have done.
If you are considering Liposuction you owe it to yourself to get a free consultation from Dr Darryl Blinski. Dr Blinski is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and a national trainer for other physicians.

What Is Ultrasonic Lipo?
Ultrasonic Liposuction, or Ultrasound-assisted liposuction, is a less invasive form of Liposuction that uses super high frequency sound waves to liquefy unwanted fat, making it easier to remove.
This procedure is considered to be safer and more effective than traditional Liposuction, because only one “injection” is required, and less force must be used by the doctor, resulting in him being less fatigued during the procedure.
The Ultrasonic Liposuction procedure has a track record of a quicker recovery time with fewer complications. This advancement in liposuction technology is one of several options provided by Dr. Blinski.
How Is Ultrasonic Lipo Performed?
During Ultrasonic Lipo, a specialized hollow tube, or cannula, emits a high frequency ultrasound, which breaks up the fat tissue and liquefies it. Once liquefied, the fat is easily removed through the cannula with a suction device, an aspirator. The procedure takes longer than traditional Liposuction, but with less chance of complications, due to less effort needed by the surgeon during the procedure, who is less likely to tire or use to much force in moving the cannula around.
What Happens After Surgery?
The anesthesia fluid infused into the fatty tissue greatly reduces any pain following surgery. This greatly minimizes postoperative pain. After Ultrasonic Lipo, patients are usually alert and able to function. Most people return to work and normal activities within a few days of their Ultrasonic Lipo procedure, although some have taken over a week to recover. Compression garments are typically worn for several weeks, less than with Traditional Liposuction.
Cosmetic procedures that are not heavily invasive, or require extensive surgery, make recovery and the noticing of results much quicker. Body-Jet liposuction is such a procedure, in that it is a body contouring treatment that involves little invasiveness and less recovery time than traditional liposuction. Valuing his patient’s time, Dr. Blinski offers Miami Body Jet Lipo as part of his list of procedures.
Unlike many doctors performing cosmetic procedures, who are actually General Practioners with a weekend seminar teaching them that single procedure, Dr. Blinski is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. His understanding of every aspect and nuance of cosmetic procedures is comprehensive and encompassing. Wouldn’t you have better peace of mind knowing that the surgeon performing your procedure had a comprehensive education and certification credentials?
And since he is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, as well as a widely recognized expert on cosmetic procedures, Dr. Blinski has a comprehensive understanding of every nuance of other cosmetic procedures, such as Cellulite Reduction, Sculptra, or Fat Transfer.

When you are with Dr. Blinski, you can be confident that he will choose the procedure best suited for your particular situation.
What Is Body Jet Lipo?
Body-Jet Lipo is water-assisted liposuction, meaning that a spray of water, instead of chemicals, helps to loosen and prepare excess fat cells for removal. The unwanted fat is simultaneously removed by way of an aspirator.
This procedure is considered to be safer and more effective than traditional Liposuction, as the water is injected, loosening the fat, at the same time that the fat is removed. The incision is smaller than traditional Liposuction, resulting in a quicker recovery time.
The Body-Jet Liposuction procedure has a track record of a quicker recovery time with fewer complications, and many patients report less swelling or bruising. This advancement in liposuction technology is one of several options provided by Dr. Blinski.
How Is Body-Jet Lipo Performed?
Some Liposuction techniques are designed to liquefy fat cells, but Body-Jet Lipo loosens the fat without damage the fat cell. Instead, a medical-grade water solution separates sheets of fat cells, rather than breaking the cells apart and causing potential tissue damage. Surrounding connective tissues and blood vessels remain intact, making the procedure less invasive and less uncomfortable, while still delivering the same contouring results expected from traditional Liposuction.
What Happens After Surgery?
The anesthesia fluid infused into the fatty tissue helps to keep the area numb for about 24 hours following surgery. This greatly minimizes postoperative pain. After Body-Jet Lipo, patients are usually alert and able to function without nausea. Due to the decreased amount of liquid solution used in Body-Jet Liposuction, less swelling and bruising, and faster healing can be expected. Most people return to work and normal activities within two days of their Body-Jet procedure. Compression garments are typically worn for 2 weeks after Body-Jet lipo, as compared to 6 weeks for traditional Liposuction.
If you are seeking a highly effective and cutting-edge method of significantly improving the efficiency and safety of most surgical techniques, then laser technology is undoubtedly what you will want to use.

What Is Smart Lipo?
Smartlipo™ is a new and less invasive form of liposuction that uses a laser to liquefy unwanted fat. It is easier to remove the liquid fat using a smaller cannula than what is required for Liposuction, resulting in a smaller incision and therefore less chance of scarring.
The laser’s heat also stimulates the growth of collagen, which will continue to tighten your skin for several months after surgery. Depending on your situation, additional skin tightening through a Tummy Tuck or similar procedure may not be necessary.
The procedure itself takes less effort due to the fat being liquefied. Traditional Liposuction takes more strength from the surgeon, resulting in quicker fatigue. With SmartLipo, the physician only has to move the cannula through liquid, and therefore won’t get fatigued during the procedure.
Treatments with the Smartlipo system generally result in less swelling and bleeding as compared to traditional liposuction methods and can usually be performed in one 45-minute session. Repeat touch ups are required less often than with traditional Liposuction.
How Is Smart Lipo Performed?
During SmartLipo, the area to be treated is infused with a saline solution containing a local anesthetic. A very small incision is then made in the skin. A very small tube, called a cannula, containing the laser fiber is inserted into the fatty layers. The small laser fiber delivers energy directly to the fat cells, causing them to liquefy so they can be more easily removed.
What Happens After Surgery?
The anesthesia fluid infused into the fatty tissue helps to keep the area numb for 18 to 24 hours following surgery. This greatly minimizes postoperative pain. After SmartLipo, patients are usually alert and able to function without nausea. The laser causes small blood vessels to coagulate immediately on contact, resulting in less swelling and bruising, as well as faster healing. Most people return to work and normal activities within two days of their SmartLipo procedure. Compression garments are typically worn for 2 weeks after SmartLipo as compared to 6 weeks for traditional liposuction.
