Dr. Greenwald is now offering SmartLipo (Smart Lipo or LaserBodySculpting) to his patients seeking minimally invasive body contouring procedures at his New York offices (Harrison, Westchester County)
SmartLipo or Laser Liposuction is a technique that was recently approved by the FDA for the treatment of fat deposits throughout the body. The Smartlipo laser disrupts the fat cells thus reducing the unwanted fat deposits. The Smartlipo laser energy is also transmitted to the overlying skin resulting in tightening of the skin.
Smartlipo can be performed almost anywhere there is fat on the body. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia; is minimally invasive due to the size of the small cannula (1 mm) and the results are dramatic. This produces a much faster recovery time with significantly less bruising than traditional liposuction.
Smart Lipo or Smart Lipo (also known as laserbodysculpting) is perhaps the most sought after procedure in years. With minimal downtime and bruising as compared to traditional liposuction, it may be the perfect solution for areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise. Procedures are typically performed under local anesthesia. Smart lipo not only reduces the fat volume but has been shown to tighten the skin in the treated area. This enables Dr. Greenwald to treat patients with lax skin who may not have been candidates for traditional liposuction.

FDA APPROVES SILICONE GEL IMPLANTS
November 17, 2006
For the first time in fourteen years, the FDA has approved silicone gel-filled breast implants for use by specially trained surgeons. Silicone gel-filled breast implants may be used on women who are at least 22 years old. Prior to the FDA's announcement, cohesive silicone gel implants ("gummy bear implants") could only be used for breast reconstruction patients, mastopexy-augmentation patients and previously augmented patients in need of a revision. Dr. Greenwald is approved to use these implants and is happy to offer them to appropriate patients. These new generation silicone-filled implants are made of a proprietary silicone gel formulation that holds its shape but remains soft, resulting in a more natural look and feel. Please contact Dr. Greenwald of Cosmetic Surgery Associates of Westchester to schedule your consultation.
