Port St. Lucie
If you want to say goodbye to extra fat on your abdomen, waist, hips, inner and outer thighs, arms, neck, and knees, you may be a good candidate for Lipotherme Laser, an innovative fat removal procedure available with Dr John L. Porcaro, Board Certified by The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery.*
Lipotherme is a safe and effective procedure that liquefies the fat before the fat removal. The thermal effect produced by the FDA-approved laser causes tissue contraction, which results in smooth and tightened skin with a more contoured appearance.
Dr. John Porcaro, Port St Lucie is a member of Advisory Council of The American Society of Lipo-Suction Surgery and in Jan 2012 Dr Porcaro was asked to present his technique at the Annual Meeting, attended by several hundred physicians who perform liposuction.
Dr Porcaro regularly attends meetings and surgical workshops on Liposculpture and laser lipolysis, so you can be confident you are will receive state of the art treatment at Porcaro Cosmetic Surgery.
How Dr Porcaro Performs the Lipotherme Laser Procedure (Laser Lipo):
Dr Porcaro will first administer local tumescent anesthesia to the treatment area(s) after you have received IV sedation. This tumescent fluid not only loosens up your fat, it numbs the area so you will experience minimal or no discomfort. This tumescent fluid will also constrict your blood vessels so you will experience very little bleeding. Additionally, your fat that is swollen by the tumescent fluid becomes an excellent target for the laser, resulting in fat breakdown.
The fat that is liquefied by the tiny 1 mm laser fiber is removed by a small metal tube called a cannula that is inserted beneath the skin. The Lipotherme Laser beam is then employed to tighten the skin. Because of the thermal effect from the Lipotherme Laser, tightening of the skin occurs in the weeks and months after your procedure.
