EZLipo, also called “Smart Liposuction” , is a French minimally -invasive liposculpting technique (modified tumescent liposuction) that can be performed as an alternative to laser smart lipo and traditional liposuction. EZLipo restores body contour harmony and skin tone. Stretch marks will be less visible but won’t perish.
Using the “tumescent technique,” EZLipo is performed under local anesthesia. Dr. Assassa uses a mini canula that is inserted through small incisions, 1-2 millimeter in size, to extract unwanted fat, sculpt the body, and tighten the skin. No stitches are required, and the procedure leaves virtually no unsightly scars. To achieve optimal results, Dr. Assassa uses a proprietary mapping technique that enables him to restore the arcs and convexities that create face and body beauty and harmony.
Recovery time is dependent upon the extent and location of the procedure performed. Minimal discomfort does occur, similar to the feeling of muscle ache after a vigorous workout. A few days of rest are usually advised, but the amount of rest recommended depends on the extent of the procedure and the level of comfort of the patient. As far as physical appearance, the patient can expect the following:
Healing tissue and fluids occupy the areas where subcutaneous fat was removed. The area may appear the same size or sometimes slightly larger. However, nearly all patients report feeling that the areas seem to have less fat.
One week later
Swelling of the area decreases slightly, but can be reduced further with ultrasound and or lymphatic massage.
Three months later
After 3 months, the tissue heals fully, and reorganizes back to the feeling of normal skin. The overlying skin contracts and tightens, and stretch marks begin to fade.
The most important safety issue for patients considering “EZLipo”, also known as “Smart Liposuction” in Los Angeles is choosing the right physician. Dr. Sam Assassa is president of the American Association of Aesthetic Medicine and Surgery, which is committed to teaching the artistic act of aesthetics with patient safety in mind, giving its members cutting edge guidance and education in this rapidly growing field. Dr. Assassa has extensive experience and is well versed in EZLipo techniques.
