Dr. Koehler and Dr. Cuzalina were recently interviewed on Fox News regarding SmartLipo, as the first doctors in Tulsa to use this technology.
SmartLipo combines traditional liposuction
with the use of a YAG laser. The main advantage is that a smaller liposuction
cannula is used, there is potentially less bruising and bleeding, and possibly better skin tightening.
Currently, the laser is most effective in treating small deposits of fat. Traditional liposuction
or ultrasonic liposuction
using tumescent anesthesia is still frequently used, especially when large amounts of fat need to be removed.
