Liposculpturing is an effective way to remove unwanted fat from the abdomen, chest, and flanks. Dr. Goldberg uses a special liposuction technique called SmartLipo to remove the stubborn fat that diet and exercise can’t eliminate. SmartLipo, or laser assisted liposuction, is a technique that uses laser beams at 2 wavelengths, one to target the fat cell and the other to target the blood vessels and collagen, and the wavelength targets fat cells and literally melt the fat cells, a process also known as emulsification.
Using SmartLipo technique, Dr. Goldberg sculpts the abdomen, flanks, and chest to give you the chiseled look of six-pack abs and the pelvic lines. For the chest, the Smart Lipo technique could enhance pectoralis major muscle appearance by removing the stubborn fat around the chest to give you a defined chest. Overall, SmartLipo is a powerful surgical technique that will give you the ultimate physique.
