For the most part, genes determine the deposition of fat in adults. Woman, particularly after pregnancy, tend to accumulate fat in the hips and abdomen. Adult men get deposits in the waist or “love handles”. Liposuction is often the only means of removing fat deposits.
Triplex Laser Liposuction is a revolutionary, minimally invasive treatment that does something diet and exercise cannot do; eliminate unwanted fat with gentle, smooth results. This laser-assisted lipolysis melts away fat in trouble spots, like your abdomen, thighs, arms, and neck. The results last longer than other treatments and are less invasive than traditional liposuction or a more invasive procedure such as a facelift.
Dr Ginsburg trained with Dr. Jeffry Klein, the inventor of tumescent liposuction in the mid 1990’s. Since that time he has performed several thousand procedures. He was one of the first physicians in the south east to perform Smart Lipo, the gold standard of laser assisted Liposuction Surgery. With this technology combined with the Klein technique, doctors can perform liposuction under local anesthesia and patients can return to work and exercise within a day or two.
Triplex Smart Lipo is performed using a tiny cannula (or tube) inserted into the skin. A laser fiber inside of the cannula delivers energy directly to fat cells, causing them to melt away as liquid. At the same time, tissue around the area is heated, which stimulates the production of collagen, resulting overall tighter skin and a greatly improved contour. The change in silhouette produced by liposuction is equivalent to focusing the effects of dieting on a specific area. Perfection is an unrealistic expectation. We strive for “significant” improvement and the results can be spectacular!
This “Laser” Technique uses large volumes of very dilute anesthetic. The anesthetic is warm, so this part of the procedure is not painful. Because of the ability of the solution to constrict blood vessels, there is very little blood loss, and the area remains numb for 12 to 24 hours. There is little or no need for post-operative pain relievers, and some patients can even drive themselves home and work the next day. Others prefer a mild sedative, and can have a friend or relative drive them home.
The most commonly treated areas in women are the abdomen, hips, thighs, knees and underneath the chin.The ideal candidate for liposuction is someone who is healthy and has a realistic expectation of their desired outcome. You are an excellent candidate if you are near your ideal weight, but you can achieve great results even if you are overweight. An overweight person whose weight is stable and has a few problem areas can still have tremendous improvement.
Triplex Laser Liposuction is the safest and most precise method of liposuction, and it is the only technology that effectively addresses both fat and skin tightening in a single treatment. The laser reduces bleeding and bruising by coagulating blood vessels as it liquefies the fat. Following laser lipolysis, a very small suction cannula is inserted through multiple tiny nicks in the skin that do not require sutures to close. Suction then removes the liquefied fat. There is usually no need for post-operative pain relievers, and you can return to work the next day.
Because there is no need for general anesthesia, Smart Lipo is very safe. Local anesthesia is safer than general anesthesia. The risk of serious complications, such as infection is exceedingly small, and there are only occasional minor side effects such as bruising, swelling, and temporary numbness. There can be irregularities in the skin, but by using small cannulas, this risk is very small. It can take three to four months for the swelling to be resolve itself completely, but you will see dramatic results immediately. Because of the small size of the cannulas, there is minimal trauma, and some patients do not experience any bruising.
As with all our treatments, we believe that good post-operative care enhances your final outcome. For all our Smart Lipo patients, we also schedule post-operative treatments using ultrasound to speed healing and recovery and to assure that you achieve the best results possible.

CoolSculpting and Liposuction are both excellent solutions for fat removal. So which do you choose? The short answer is they’re both effective for people who are good candidates. But for some, one option is better than the other.
