Dr Bergeron is now a Featured Doctor on both
Dr Bergeron was one of the first doctors in the country trained and performing SmartLipo. Dr. Bergeron and his team perform 25-30 liposuction cases per month and is one of the most sought after SmartLipo doctors in Texas.
Smartlipo™ was the first FDA approved laser lipolysis system to offer a revolutionary and minimally invasive procedure for the removal of fat. Using a high-powered laser, Smartlipo provides less downtime and side-effects than traditional liposuction.
How does the Smart Lipo™ procedure work?
A very small cannula (tube) approximately 1.0 mm to 2.0 mm in diameter containing a laser fiber is inserted through the skin and into the fat layer. The cannula is moved back and forth delivering the laser's energy directly to the fat cells, causing them to rupture and easily drain away. The laser energy also interacts with the dermis, resulting in collagen shrinkage.
Due to the cannula's small size, Smart lipo is a minimally invasive procedure and can be performed under local anesthesia. The laser causes small blood vessels to coagulate immediately on contact, resulting in less bleeding, swelling and bruising - and a quicker recovery time than conventional liposuction. Because general anesthesia is unnecessary, the procedure is very safe, with only minimal side effects.
Who is a good candidate for the Smart lipo™ Laser liposuction procedure?
If you have areas of fat that will not respond to diet and exercise, then you're a candidate for Laser liposuctioni. Ideal candidates are in good health and have realistic expectations for the results.
What body regions can be treated with Smart lipo?
It is ideal for treating unwanted fat of the chin/neck, upper arms, male breasts (gynecomastia), abdomen, love handles, back, thighs and knees.
How many treatments will I need?
For most patients, typically only one treatment is required. The session may last from 45 minutes to one hour for each area treated.
Do I have to do anything post-treatment?
After the treatment you will need to wear a compression garment for several days to several weeks, depending on the body area being treated. Rest is recommended after the procedure and activity may be resumed gradually. Refrain from hot tubs or strenuous exercise for 2-3 days.
Does Smart lipo treat cellulite?
The procedure may improve the body 's shape and may improve cellulite to a certain degree.
When can I expect to see results?
Results can be seen as soon as a week with continued improvement over several months.
Does laserlipolisi provide lasting results?
Yes! Adults do not create new fat cells. When a person gains weight, the fat cells expand. The Smartlipo procedure permanently removes the fat cells. Should you gain weight, most fat will be deposited in areas where the procedure was not performed.
