Dr Oz: Plastic Surgery Breakthrough – Shrink Wrap Liposuction
Dr. Oz’s next medical breakthrough is in the field of plastic surgery, and more specifically liposuction. The procedure is called Shrink Wrap Liposuction and the results have been dramatically amazing. Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Raffi Hovsepian, explains that Shrink Wrap Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that combines liposuction and laser technology. He says that by combining the two together, he is seeing body-transforming results in his patients, with most dropping 2-4 dress sizes after the procedure, while avoiding the hip-to-hip incision of a tummy tuck.
Dr Oz: Shrink Wrap Liposuction Technology
In the past, liposuction and laser surgery have been used to basically chip away at unwanted body fat. Shrink Wrap Liposuction is unique in that it can be personalized to each patient according to their skin type and volume of fat, according to Dr. Hovsepian. He goes on to explain that the lasers used in this procedure are at a level specific to treating fat cells, so none of the surrounding tissue is damaged during the treatment.
Dr Oz: Shrink Wrap Liposuction vs. “Regular” Liposuction
In an on-stage demonstration Dr. Oz showed the difference between using liposuction on its own and using Shrink Wrap Liposuction, which combines traditional liposuction with laser technology. Dr. Oz explained that our fat cells are hard, similar to a stick of butter, so when liposuction is performed it is often difficult to suck out the fat, which causes a lot of bruising and long healing time.
In the case of Shrink Wrap Liposuction, the laser works first to melt the fat, so that the doctor can then easily suck it out using liposuction, which will be way less uncomfortable for the patient. Dr. Raffi Hovsepian explains that he can then adjust the laser wavelengths in order to stimulate the collagen under the skin and over time, this will cause it to shrink to the contour of the body.
