At the Southeastern Dermatology practice in Knoxville, TN, we offer a variety of services to improve the skin and body. Patients who have been dealing with unwanted areas of fat that have not been improved with diet and exercise may speak with a doctor who can provide an effective treatment. Liposuction is the removal of fat cells through a cannula that allows individuals to better contour their body and reduce areas of fat. This treatment is commonly used on areas such as the thighs, abdomen, flanks, buttocks, and arms.
Dr. Doppelt is a dermatologist in the Knoxville, TN area who offers a smarter, less invasive way of undergoing liposuction. SmartLipo is a liposuction treatment that allows patients to enjoy an enhanced appearance with a microcannula liposuction technique, which reduces the risks and discomfort associated with the traditional procedure. Many patients experience faster recovery and healing from this procedure, and find that it is much less troublesome than conventional methods.
Patients must understand that liposuction is not a method of losing weight. In fact, patients must be at their ideal weight to be an appropriate candidate for treatment. This includes maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise to maintain the body sculpting results. Contouring the body is the goal of SmartLipo, not weight loss.
During the SmartLipo procedure, patients are made comfortable with local anesthetics and are awake during the entire treatment. Many patients experience fast recovery, and are able to return to work in just a few days. This makes SmartLipo the ideal procedure for patients who want results but little interruption into their busy lives. This outpatient procedure is done quickly and effectively at the practice of Dr. Doppelt.
Dr. Doppelt, of Southeastern Dermatology, is proud to offer patients a method of body contouring that is simple, affordable, and less invasive than other options available through a traditional plastic surgeon. Patients interested in SmartLipo as an alternative are encouraged to contact our practice to schedule a consultation visit with our dedicated, experienced staff.
