Dr. Lacerna utilizes the most advanced techniques for facial and body contouring with Smartlipo® Laser-assisted liposuction and VASERlipo™ liposuction, or ultrasound-assisted liposuction, to achieve the best results.
LA Plastic Surgery and Dermatology in Sarasota and Bradenton offers Smartlipo®, the most technologically advanced laser–assisted liposuction device currently available on the market. A device made by Cynosure®, one of the leading and most trusted laser companies in the country, Smartlipo® uses a diode laser in the 924 and 975 nm range to specifically target fat cells. Because of this specificity, there is less pain, bruising, swelling and downtime, as compared with traditional tumescent liposuction techniques.
In addition, there is improved skin retraction associated with the technique, as compared to more traditional techniques. Smartlipo® Laser Body Sculpture can sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck.
