All are welcome to the Art of Skin MD special seminar Thursday, April 11th on the latest in body and facial contouring. I'm (Dr. Melanie Palm) am pleased to discuss the latest in innovative techniques to address unwanted areas of fat and body imperfections.
Here are the Liposculpture Event details at Art of Skin MD:
Thursday, April 11th from 6 to 8 pm (doors open at 5:30 pm)
Light appetizers and drinkls will be served
Attendees will learn the latest techniques in minimally invasive liposculpture and laser liposuction using the Accusculpt system. Liposculpture is performed completely painlessly by the use of tumescent anesthesia and fine sculpting cannulas. Patients recover quickly from the procedure and there is no need for general anesthesia when using the tumescent technique to numb the areas of liposuction treatment.
Accusculpt laser liposuction system is a 1444 nm laser device used specifically to target unwanted areas of fat and for skin contraction. Specifically, Dr. Palm uses it for facial sculpting, especially for stubborn jowls and along the jawline and neck. On the body, the Accusculpt system is helpful in producing skin tightening to the upper arms and lower abdomen. Accusculpt is performed, in many cases, just prior to traditional tumescent liposuction to enhance the tightening effect following liposuction.
What are areas that can be treated by liposculpture? The answer is many... the inner and outer thighs, abdomen, saddle bags, hips, tummy bulge (abdomen), waist, arms, back, chest, and double chin can all be improved through liposuction.
So what can be done with the extracted fat? FAT TRANSFER! Why not use your own natural "filler" to rejuvenate the face, filling in areas of lost volume such as the temples, nasolabial folds, undereye hollows, and jawline.
At the seminar, I will discuss the procedure from start to finish, and multiple before and after lipo photos of Dr. Palm's own patients will be shown.
Attendance will be restricted to a small group so please RSVP early to attend. Contact us at Art of Skin MD or call us at 858.792.SKIN (7546) to reserve your place today.
The beginning of a new year and those first inklings of upcoming spring and summer get us thinking about personal improvements...and beach weather. And with the pool or beach comes the swimsuit...and wanting to look great in it!
So, if proper diet and exercise regimens have gotten you close to your ideal shape, but you are experiencing trouble spots that are stubborn improvement, it might be time to consider a consultation with Dr. Melanie Palm to consider liposculpture. Liposculpture is a procedure that uses local anesthesia only to safely and comfortably remove unwanted deposits of fat. Frequently treated areas of tumescent liposuction include the neck and jowls on the face and various areas on the body. For men, the love handles and abdomen are a frequent area of treatment. For women, batwings of the upper arms, the abdomen, hips, thighs and even knees respond well to treatment with fat removal.
Winter is the time to start thinking about liposuction as the results from liposuction take between three to six months to reach their maximum result. Because Dr. Palm uses only local tumescent numbing to the areas being treated, patients may return to work and activities quickly. Most patients can return to work within a few days and may return to their workouts within a week.
Dr. Palm augments the effects of liposuction in a few targeted areas to increase skin tightening. Using the Accusculpt laser, Dr. Palm performs laser liposuction to tighten lax skin in problem areas such as the neck, arms, and abdomen. The Accusculpt laser gently warms the undersurface of the skin to induce new collagen production and skin contraction and lifting.
If you are having fat removed, why not put it to good use? Harvested fat from liposculpture can be utilized in a variety of ways. Lipostructuring is the process of doing small, multiple fat transfers to ares of the body needing volume replacement. Most frequently, fat is used to replace aging changes and deflation on the face.
Aging around the eyes can be rejuvenated with fat. Loss of volume to the temples, cheeks, nasolabial folds, jawline, and even around the mouth can be replenished with fat. Fat is your own tissue and is a plentiful filler, making it an economical choice for true overall facial rejuvenation. Fat can also be used elsewhere. Dr. Palm has used harvested fat to augment the derriere (buttock fat transfer) or to improve the appearance of dressed scars.
