Dr. Petti Featured in Modern Aesthetics’ Smartlipo® Triplex Article
Our experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon, Christine Petti, MD, FACS, provided vital contributions on the benefits of Smartlipo® Triplex body contouring for the November/December 2020 supplement to Modern Aesthetics®. The supplement—titled “Best-In-Class Technologies for Body Contouring”—was sponsored by Cynosure® and highlighted the advantages of utilizing the state-of-the-art SculpSure®, Smartlipo® Triplex, and TempSure® systems for smoothing, slimming, and tightening areas of the body with minimal patient discomfort, risks, and recovery.
The section on Smartlipo® Triplex—which features Dr. Petti—presents the system as “A Smarter Way to Perform Lipolysis”. Lipolysis is defined as the process of breaking down fat cells. Unlike manual techniques, which use the force of the cannula to breakdown fat during liposuction, Smartlipo® Triplex uses laser energy to essentially melt fat. Dr. Petti explains that the main advantages of the Smartlipo® Triplex technology include its versatility and safety, along with its ability to effectively and precisely emulsify fat with adjustable laser energy. Dr. Petti has vast experience performing a wide range of body contouring procedures with Smartlipo® Triplex—combining laser lipolysis with liposuction for optimal patient outcomes. Laser lipolysis allows for gentler liquification of fat when compared to traditional liposuction methods, which generally reduces tissue trauma and leads to faster recovery times for patients.
At California Skin Institute in Torrance Dr. Petti utilizes the Smartlipo® Triplex system in both liposuction procedures and more invasive and complex body contouring procedures, such as tummy tuck and comprehensive mommy makeovers. In her clinical experience, Smartlipo® Triplex allows for high-definition liposuction results that can smooth skin and highlight underlying muscle tone for superior, figure-enhancing results.
If you have areas of your body that you would like to smooth and sculpt with Smartlipo® Triplex, we invite you to schedule a consultation with Dr. Petti to explore your options.
