Laser Lipo

Background

Remember when liposuction (also known as liposculpting) meant having to endure a long procedure, with scarring, stitches and an extended recovery time?

Those days are history!

At Cosmetique, the marriage of laser and liposuction comes together with the safest and most advanced treatment available today: Laser Lipo.

Dr. Gotkin is a national leader who has perfected the use of Smartlipo™ and Smartlipo TriPlex, the newest generation of laser liposuction.

Learn more about Smartlipo as described by Dr. Gotkin in USA TODAY.

Smartlipo (laser lipolysis) uses a laser beam to gently remove fat cells quickly and effectively – with very little downtime and fewer side effects than traditional liposuction.

Smartlipo is FDA approved, minimally invasive and perfect for areas that do not respond to diet and exercise.

Smartlipo is great for sculpting and fine tuning in helping you achieve the look you desire. With Smartlipo, you can lose those love handles and get a set of six-pack abs – abdominal etching at its very best.

Dr. Gotkin also uses the Smartlipo on areas that were more difficult to treat in the past with conventional liposuction, such as the ankles, lower legs and areas of previous treatment that have internal scarring.

Gynecomastia is a condition that causes masculine breasts to become enlarged. With Smartlipo, normal breast contour can be restored quickly, gently and safely.

Your new look can take shape at our high-tech accredited facility, with no hospital stay and no general anesthesia

When it comes to laser-assisted body sculpting, make the most intelligent choice.

Smartlipo … at Cosmetique.

FAQs

Question:
What is laser lipo?
Answer:
Also known as “laserlipolysis,” laser-assisted lipo is a process by which a beam of light – a laser – is used to “melt” or liquefy fat.  Dr. Gotkin performs laser lipo using the FDA-approved Smartlipo™ laser.
 
Question:
What are the benefits of laser lipo?
Answer:
There are many advantages including:  less bleeding, less bruising, less post-op discomfort, and shorter recovery time.   The gentle effect of the laser beam on the overlying skin can:  break the bands that cause dimpling and cellulite; increase collagen production during the healing period; and improve skin tightening after the fat removal.  

With the Smartlipo, there is very little downtime – in most instances, you can be back to work the very next day.
