Smart Lipo Triplex is a safe, minimally-invasive, laser-assisted lipolysis procedure that uses laser energy to permanently remove unwanted fat from the neck and jaw line. The laser liquefies the fat for easier removal and more precise results while also tightening the skin. It is ideal for treating areas of the neck, like the jowls.
*Each patient is unique and individual results may vary.
During consultation patients will be able to see what their face can look like after the fat removal procedure has been performed with the Canfield VECTRA3D imaging system. After surgery, patients will see noticeable improvement immediately; however, because the laser also promotes the production of new collagen, continued improvement and skin tightening can be seen over time. Smart Lipo Triplex also provides improved results compared to traditional liposuction techniques which can result in complications like dimpling and sagging.
What Should I Expect During a SmartLipo Triplex Consultation?
Expect To Talk About Yourself… A Lot
Any surgeon you meet with will want to learn as much about you and your medical and physical history before determining your eligibility for any surgery, including SmartLipo Triplex. Most likely, you will be asked to talk about your medical history, including any current and previous medical conditions, your known drug allergies, any recent medical treatments you have received, and all of your previous surgeries. Your surgeon may also ask about your current medications, as well as any herbal supplements or vitamins you are taking. Expect that your use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs will also be discussed, as these substances can interfere with your healing process or increase your risk of serious complications during and after surgery.
As you are talking about all of these different health factors, your surgeon will determine if you are a candidate for SmartLipo surgery. He will base this opinion on whether your health puts you at a low risk for complications and ensures a quick and smooth recovery. Cosmetic surgery should never be performed on individuals who are not healthy enough to sustain it, so expect your surgeon to be very thorough in his evaluation of you. It’s all for your own health and safety.
Expect to Talk About Your Surgical Expectations
If you are a good candidate, next you’ll discuss the concerns which brought you in for a consultation. You should be ready to pinpoint specific areas where stubborn fat cells have accumulated. Before your consultation, think about the overall goals that you would like to achieve with a SmartLipo procedure – slimmer hips, sleeker arms, no more love handles. You know where your fat deposits are the most troublesome, so your surgeon will want to hear from you about it.
While taking your opinions into account, your surgeon will then perform an examination of your body to determine the best course of action. He will make his own recommendations for your procedure to help you achieve your own realistic objectives. The surgeon’s projected results will also take into account your body shape and proportions, to ensure the most natural looking and well balanced results possible. With VECTRA 3D Imaging, your consultation will give you an accurate look at the projected results of your procedure.Your doctor will use this unique technology to create a 3D image of your body and then project your expected results. With the specifics determined, you’re ready to schedule a date for your procedure and start preparing for your SmartLipo treatment. At this point, your surgeon will take “before” photos to help with post-operative evaluations.
SmartLipo Triplex- The Surgery
Smart Lipo Triplex is performed on an outpatient basis with local anesthesia. During the procedure, Dr. Rubinstein makes a tiny incision in the treatment area and inserts a very small tube fitted with a laser fiber. The laser energy ruptures the fat cells which are then removed with gentle suction. The laser also promotes the production of new collagen which tightens the skin.

Smart Lipo Triplex is often performed with other facial procedures for improved results, including neck lift surgery and chin augmentation. During consultation, Dr. Rubinstein will use video imaging to provide you with a better idea of the results that can be achieved with Smart Lipo Triplex and other procedures.
After Surgery: What to Expect
Smart Lipo Triplex involves a significantly shorter and easier recovery compared to traditional liposuction techniques. There is generally less swelling, bruising and pain. A special compression garment will need to be worn for a period of time after treatment. This helps to minimize swelling and support the new contours of the body.
One treatment is typically all that is needed. While immediate improvement can be seen, the results will continue to improve over the next three to six months as new collagen grows. Most normal activities can be resumed within two to four days after treatment, though strenuous activities and exercise should be postponed for about seven to ten days.
