Do you have love handles, bat wings, muffin tops, saddlebags, or jowls that don’t respond to exercise and diet?
They all improve dramatically using Smartlipo The Woodlands TX/ Spring preformed by Lucian Rivela, MD, FACS, with minimal downtime and less pain than traditional liposuction alone. Because Smartlipo actually tightens tissue, you don’t have to worry about dimpling and sagging afterwards.

Your Consultation with Dr. Rivela
At Rivela Plastic Surgery, we will customize your Smartlipo procedure in order for you to achieve the best results possible. To that end, we provide you with a comprehensive consultation prior to your procedure. Dr. Rivela will examine you and discuss recommendations for the type of liposuction procedure and recovery program to yield the best results.
In your initial consultation, Dr. Rivela will evaluate your health, determine where your fat deposits lie and assess the condition of your skin. He will explain the body-contouring methods that may be most appropriate for you. For example, if you believe you want liposuction in the abdominal area, you may learn that an Abdominoplasty may more effectively meet your goals, or that a combination of traditional liposuction and laser treatment would be the best choice for you.
Be candid in discussing your expectations with Dr. Rivela. He will be equally honest with you, describing the procedure in detail and explaining its risks and limitations.

This laser assisted lipolysis procedure is performed using a small cannula (or tube) about the size of the tip of a pen, which is inserted under the skin. The laser delivers energy directly to the fat cells through the cannula, causing them to rupture. The liquefied fat is then gently suctioned out. New collagen is produced, resulting in tissue tightening. The three laser wavelengths contained in Smartlipo Triplex will allow Dr. Rivela to customize treatments based on the nature of your concerns.
Your Liposuction Recovery
Smartlipo Triplex is a minimally invasive procedure which usually requires only local anesthesia. Some light bruising can occur, but you’ll be able to return to normal activities within a day or two.
What are the advantages of Smarlipo Triplex over conventional liposuction procedures?
First, both treatments remove fat, but unlike Smartlipo Triplex, conventional liposuction can leave behind loose skin. Second, because local anesthetic is typically used with Smartlipo treatments (instead of general anesthesia), you’re awake during the procedure-that’s a real plus, leading to a faster, easier recovery. Smartlipo Triplex can also create a high definition, sculpted look by defining waistlines in women and abdominal muscles in men (six pack).
How do I know if Smartlipo Triplex is right for me?
The best candidates for Smartlipo are women and men who are not significantly overweight, but have accumulated fat deposits-such as love handles, flabby upper arms, excess neck or facial fat or fat on the lower torso. A consultation with Dr. Rivela for Smartlipo can help provide you with the best information.
