Durham, NC, June 21, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Healing Waters Spa & Cosmetic Clinic (http://www.healingwatersbeauty.com), a medical aesthetic clinic, has announced that Kirsten Rank, registered nurse, has released a podcast discussing the differences between SmartLipo™ and abdominoplasty treatment options. In the podcast, Rank addresses a number of related topics including recovery time, results and benefits associated with each body procedure treatment. Additionally, Rank provides listeners with insight into when these procedures are recommended and appropriate, as well as tips for maintaining weight loss following the procedures.
According to Rank, SmartLipo™ involves a local anesthetic and uses a Triplex™ Laser, the most advanced laser lipolysis system on the market, to help tighten the skin, causing little to no scarring. Abdominoplasty, on the other hand, is done under general anesthesia and will not only reduce fat, but will remove excess skin as well. As Rank mentions, an abdominoplasty procedure is much more invasive and therefore has a longer recovery time than SmartLipo™ treatments. In terms of results, Rank notes that while both treatments will reduce the circumference of the fat in the area, the abdominoplasty may produce a larger scar on the lower abdomen. The ideal candidate for SmartLipo™ treatment, according to Rank, would have small pockets of fat and minor skin tightening needs, whereas the ideal candidate for abdominoplasty has extremely stretched muscles, stretch marks, and excess fat and skin in the abdominal area. Finally, Rank concludes that both treatment options should not serve as stand-alone weight loss procedures, and encourages a healthy lifestyle for all patients before and after treatment.

“It is very important to understand the differences between SmartLipo™ and abdominoplasty procedures for all individuals considering these treatment options,” said Rank. “Through one-on-one consultations, our highly experienced doctors and nurses here at Healing Waters Spa & Cosmetic Clinic can help lead patients in the right direction by identifying their individual needs, providing the best options based on a case-by-case basis and discussing healthy strategies for maintaining weight loss.”
“Abdominal liposuction compared to abdominoplasty surgery is a debate that many patients contemplate when considering plastic surgery,” said Amanda Gorecki, president and founder of Healing Waters Spa & Cosmetic Clinic. “At Healing Waters, our team of registered nurses, advanced registered nurse practitioners and surgeons make it a priority to understand the unique needs and desires of all our patients and guide them in their decision by determining which body procedure is best based on a thorough assessment of their condition and goals.”
