FAQs

  • What are the advantages of Smartlipo over traditional liposuction without a laser?

    With Smartlipo, there is less bleeding, less bruising, and faster recovery. Most Smartlipo is performed under local anesthesia only. No general anesthesia or operating room costs. Smartlipo is also better at skin tightening because of the laser and therefore is better for areas of unwanted fat where the overlying skin is slightly loose.

  • Who are the best candidates for Smartlipo?

    Those patients in good health who are at or close to their ideal weight with small localized areas of unwanted fat that do not respond to diet and exercise are considered the best candidates. It is ideal for those patients who want excellent results, minimal downtime, and no general anesthesia. It is not used for large areas of fat reduction and for those individuals who are overweight

  • Why is Smartlipo considered minimally invasive?

    The Des Moines Smartlipo procedure is commonly performed under local anesthesia alone with the patient awake or mildly sedated with oral sedative medication. The Smartlipo cannula is inserted under the skin into the fatty layer through 1-2 mm incisions. The laser is at the tip of the cannula and the aiming beam can be visualized through the skin allowing Dr. Robbins to precisely identify the treatment area. The laser energy at the cannula fiber tip ruptures fat cell membranes and releases fatty oil from the fat cells. This end product of fatty oil from fat cell membrane disruption is aspirated from the site. The Smartlipo at Des Moines Plastic Surgery™ works differently from traditional liposuction. Smartlipo disrupts fat cells by heat and a photodistruptive action, or shattering of the fat cell membrane. The laser coagulates or seals off blood vessels resulting in less bleeding, less bruising, and less trauma to the skin and deeper tissues. This results in less downtime and faster recovery. Smartlipo also promotes tissue tightening through bulk laser heating and tissue coagulation.

  • Any alternatives to Smartlipo?

    In addition, Dr. Robbins performs VASER Ultrasonic Liposuction and High Definition Liposculpture for fat reduction and muscle definition.

A tummy tuck can address both the upper and lower abdomen. It’s important to note that tummy tuck surgery is not a substitute for conventional weight loss. The best candidates will already be in good health and physical shape before electing surgery.

The goal of tummy tuck surgery is to redefine and reshape the abdomen through the removal of excess skin and fat and tightening of abdomen muscles.

You may be a good candidate for abdominoplasty if you have:

Localized fat deposits around your midsection
Excess or hanging skin around your abdomen
Stretched or separated abdominal muscles (diastasis recti)

A flat and well-toned abdomen is something many of us strive for through exercise and weight control. Sometimes these methods cannot achieve our goals.

Even individuals of otherwise normal body weight and proportion can develop an abdomen that protrudes or is loose and sagging. The most common causes of this include:

Aging
Heredity
Pregnancy
Prior surgery
Significant fluctuations in weight

A tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty, removes excess fat and skin and restores weakened muscles to create a smoother, firmer abdominal profile.

Consultation: the first step.

Many women start their surgical journey by talking to a friend or a relative who has already had a breast augmentation. While these are all good places to start, your most valuable resource is a personal consultation with a plastic surgeon.

A consultation doesn’t take long, and with an expert’s opinion, you’ll be better able to understand the benefits, risks, and discover which implant options are best for you and your body.

What LOOK can Natrelle® implants give you?
Your surgeon can help you choose the best option based on your needs, wants, unique body structure, and more. Natrelle INSPIRA® Breast Implants are designed for a full look—especially at the top. Keep in mind that choosing the right implant for you is more than just deciding on size.

Should you request a certain bra size?

Believe it or not - no!

Surgeons talk size and projection when it comes to selecting implants. Breast implant size is actually measured in cubic centimeters (cc), not by bra cup size. The larger the implant, the higher the number of cc.

Projection refers to the side profile or the distance that the implant projects from your body.

The amount of volume (cc) and the degree of projection you and your surgeon select will depend on your body type and the shape and fullness you want.

What does GUMMY feel like?

All Natrelle INSPIRA Breast implants are soft, with varying levels of gel squishiness. When you go gummy, you don’t have to sacrifice implant softness. The best way to determine softness is to feel each implant during your consultation.

What does GUMMY mean?

Gummy describes the consistency of silicone gel in Natrelle INSPIRA Breast Implants.

This gummy-like gel sticks together and has a tendency to hold its shape.

Each implant in the INSPIRA collection has a different level of cohesivity, or what surgeons refer to as gumminess.
