Dr. Martini has been performing liposuction for over 15 years and his technique has evolved as the science, art and technology of liposuction has advanced. Modern liposuction has much faster recovery time than previous techniques and employs a more precise, gentler instrumentation. Laser technology is one of the innovations that Dr. Martini has incorporated into his body contouring technique that allows him to achieve optimal results for his patients. He initiates the treatment with laser to loosen the fat and enable precise sculpting of the abdomen, flanks, back, and inner and outer thighs. The use of the laser in conjunction with liposuction also stimulates the skin to contract and re-drape more effectively to give a smoother result.
Laser-assisted tumescent liposuction is the procedure for the removal of fat that Dr. Martini employs. This technology involves a laser that liquefies fat and coagulates blood vessels for less bleeding, swelling and bruising while causing the skin to tighten and re-drape into your new contour. This procedure has the potential for a much quicker recovery time than conventional liposuction. The procedure is very safe and recovery time is usually short. Discomfort is minimal and can be managed with pain medication. Dr. Martini will recommend that you wear compression garments to minimize any swelling that may occur.
With laser-assisted lipo, in areas such as “love handles”, the abdomen, inner and outer thighs or possibly the “bra bulge” on the back, local anesthesia is placed in the fatty tissue just below the skin. When the patient is comfortable, tiny entrance incisions are made and the laser liquefies the fat so a small wand can be used to suction out the liquid tissue. The laser uses a wavelength specifically targeted to melt fat and break up fibrous bands while causing the skin to tighten.
It is important to know that this procedure is not for weight loss. It is designed to be used on stubborn pockets of fat that despite proper diet and exercise, just do not want to respond. Certain patients may require treatment of excess skin using abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) which can also be discussed at the time of consultation.

In your 20s, skin is generally free of the signs of aging. Start a medically supervised treatment plan now to protect your skin from the harmful effects of the sun and environment.
Proper cleansing, moisturizing, and use of a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily will help ward off early wrinkles and enlarged pores. Mild peels and topical treatments may help control acne. BOTOX® injections can prevent lines and filler agents such as Radiesse®, Restylane®, and Juvéderm® can be used to fill out smile lines and augment lips.
Some features of a young man's or young woman's body may be disagreeable to them or cause them to be self conscious. Reshaping of the nose(rhinoplasty) or ears(otoplasty) to a more appropriate or pleasing contour can be a real source of satisfaction and a confidence builder.
Decreased firmness and skin elasticity are a natural part of aging. Introducing anti-oxidants into your skincare routine can help prevent sun damage that leads to lines and age spots. Also, alpha hydroxy acids in conjunction with retinoids and topical antioxidants can restore a youthful appearance to the skin.
Non-invasive laser procedures may improve fine lines, brown spots, and broken blood vessels. BOTOX® injections can diminish laugh lines and create a smoother forehead. Fillers like Radiesse®, Restylane®, and Juvéderm® can be used to fill smile lines and augment lips.

For those in their 40s, damage caused by sun exposure becomes apparent. More aggressive skincare can help combat the visible signs of aging. A combination of topical solutions like tretinoin (Retin-A), AHAs, and BHAs, along with microdermabrasion brings the best results.
There are many procedures available to smooth and tighten skin. Photofacials, chemical peels, and topical treatments are effective in decreasing the signs of aging as well as minimizing pore size. Fillers like Radiesse®, Restylane®, and Juvéderm® can help restore volume in the mid-face and fill smile lines. For upper face and forehead lines, Botox® injections may be in order.
The 40s are a pivotal age. You can defy aging by combining several small procedures that add up to big changes. These include eyelid lift(blepharoplasty) combined with filler to reverse early facial aging, and minimal recovery laser resurfacing to address skin tone.
By age fifty, regular skin examinations by a physician experienced in skin cancer detection and treatment are essential.
Maintaining natural moisture is more difficult. Peels and light therapy in combination with ultra-hydrating home care can help maintain the balance. Laser resurfacing combined with fillers to restore volume can provide an impressive non-surgical rejuvenation.
Surgical rejuvenation can achieve dramatic results. Many patients can receive their optimal outcome with the rapid recovery facelift. Combined with blepharoplasty and skin care, the results can make you look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside. Patients with more advanced aging may benefit from our maximal rejuvenation surgical techniques.
