Cosmetic Services - Smart Lipo
Dr. Blase Pignotti has performed liposuction procedures for more than 20 years. He's been particularly impressed with recent breakthroughs in technology that have turned liposuction into a less traumatic, less expensive cosmetic option. As a result, Dr. Pignotti now offers the Smart Lipo procedure at his office.
Liposuction has long been seen as an effective way to get rid of fatty deposits that have lingered despite exercise and changes to diet. The Smart Lipo technology changes the liposuction equation by introducing a less invasive, less costly procedure. Patients can expect far less downtime and a more affordable liposuction option.
Dr. Pignotti is renowned for his surgical expertise and precision. Patients interested in Smart Lipo are encouraged to call his office to set up a consultation to discuss ideal candidates, how the procedure differs from what has previously been available and what types of results you can expect.
