SAFE-Lipo® Before & After Case 8
This is a 45 year-old woman who found us on RealSelf as well as researching the internet. She was interested in improving her abdomen through a tummy tuck and liposuction. She decided to be evaluated by Dr. Michael Diaz, Melbourne and Orlando, FL plastic surgeon after she reviewed his before and after gallery.
During her consultation she described the areas that bothered her and what she would like to achieve with her procedure. Dr Diaz listened to her and addressed her concerns after examining her. Dr. Diaz included her in every step of the decision making process in order to make sure the surgical plan was what she wanted. She explain that she wanted a flatter and tighter tummy while improving the side rolls. She also wanted to keep the tummy tuck scar slow as possible.
On the day of her surgery, Dr. Diaz used her favorite underwear to help plan the scar placement. Her surgery was performed very smoothly. Dr. Diaz used the SAFELipo® technique to help improve the excess contours of her sides. As Melbourne, FL’s first plastic surgeon to offer SAFELipo®, Dr. Diaz felt it would help address the remaining pockets of fat on the flanks. Originated by Dr. Simeon Wall of Shrevesport, LA, SAFELipo® is a fat removal technique that comprehensively reshapes areas by combining the benefits of liposuction, fat shifting, and grafting. The fact that laser or ultrasound energy is not used helps avoid thermal damage to skin layer.
SAFE-Lip® is short for fat Separation, Aspiration, and Fat Equalization:
Separation – fat cells are mobilized without generating heat.
Aspiration – suction is applied to gently remove the mobilized fat cells.
Fat Equalization – By leaving a thin layer of fat grafts when indicated, contour irregularities are improved.
All surgical procedures as well as SAFELipo® carry risk, which Dr. Diaz reviews during the preoperative consultation. Dr. Diaz is very please with the results he has achieved and is very excited about offering it in Melbourne, FL.
He procedure was performed as an outpatient and she recovered in the comfort and privacy of her home. Our post-operative nurse visited her at home to ensure sure was recovering well. Soon after she began to resume her normal activities. She is beyond thrilled with her result!
