3D Micro Lipo™  by Dr. Jane

Based on 20 plus years of experience, Dr. Jane has created a unique liposculpting technique called 3-D Micro Liposuction™ for the most natural looking liposuction result. Utilizing modern liposuction tools such as Vaserlipo™, Jeisys CO2 Laser Lipo™, Smarlipo™, and Microaire PAL™ are all necessary to achieve good results. However, the surgeon’s experience and skill are the most contributing factors for the desired outcome. 3-D (3 depths and 3 directions) Micro Liposuction™ is a surgical method that Dr. Jane has developed to produce beautiful body contours and skin tightening without any large scars. THE MOST IMPORTANT FACTOR FOR ALL KINDS OF LIPOSUCTION IS NOT SO MUCH WHAT IS REMOVED BUT WHAT IS LEFT BEHIND (REVISION LIPOSUCTION)

Benefits of 3D Micro Lipo™ under Local Anesthesia:

  • Superior Results Achieved through 3 depths and 3 directions.
  • 3 Depths: Deep Layer Fat, Mid Layer Fat, and Upper Layer Fat are taken out evenly (Superficial Dermal Fat has to be reserved to prevent the skin dimpling)
  • 3 Directions: CrissCross and Diagonal Direction for a More Even Result
  • Superficial Skin Tightening with Fractional CO2 Laser, Vaser, or Ultherapy
  • Safer and Quicker Recovery
  • Experience and the Latest Technology
  • Smaller scar, the openings are usually 2-3 mm in a diameter
  • Thinnest cannula possible. For most of our cases, Dr. Jane uses a 3-mm and 2-mm diameter cannula

In addition to Dr. Jane’s multi-layer and multi-directional technique, 3D Micro Lipo™ also uses multiple technologies such as SmartLipo™, Lipolaser™, Jeisys CO2 Laser Lipo™, Vaserlipo™ , Velashape, or Vasershape to give the best possible liposuction result to patients. These applications do far more than just fat removal. These newer lasers also tighten skin as fat beneath the skin is melted, thus true liposculpting, 3 D Micro body sculpting, and laser body contouring are now possible. Dr. Jane has found that 3D Micro Lipo™ with Jeisys Fractional CO2 laser gives the best initial result and Lipolaser and Velashape are ideal for aftercare or enhancement. She has developed a minimally stressful abdominal exercise which you can do the day after 3D Micro Lipo™. Using a massage ball will also help to open lymphatic channels for faster healing and better results. Lastly, diet and exercise are also as important as the liposuction procedure itself in order to maintain your results long-term.

At Jenesis Lipoplasty and Laser, we have performed countless liposuction procedures with a focus on body contouring. Even with our years of experience, we are continually educating ourselves and reevaluating our techniques to ensure we provide our patients with the finest care available. Every procedure we undertake is performed under local anesthesia in our private surgery suite, achieving excellent results with minimal surgical risk. By avoiding the very high cost of the local hospitals, we have been able to achieve patient savings of $1000-2500.

Modern liposuction began in 1974 with Dr. Giorgio Fischer, a gynecologist who was the first to use blunt hollow cannulas to suction out fat without harming the major blood vessels. Shortly after, Pierre Fournier further improved on this technique and advocated the ‘dry technique’ for liposuction. The next big milestone was in 1987, when Dr. Jeffrey A. Klein developed the wet technique using a ‘tumescent solution’ of local anesthetic which is injected into the fat to reduce bleeding. Dr. Jane uses the super wet technique to improve safety and lessen bleeding. Later, Marco Gasparotti described ‘superficial subdermal liposuction,’ which claimed more effective skin retraction and thus further widened the utility of this procedure. However, Dr. Jane does not suction out the superficial fat. There are not many liposuction surgeons using this old technique because of the skin irregularities (“lumps and bumps”) it causes. Next came more technological developments to improve the safety profile and enhance better skin tightening such as MicroAire (Power assisted liposuction), Vaser Lipo (Ultrasound assisted liposuction), Smartlipo (Nd Yag Laser assisted ), and/or Jeisys Fractional CO2 Laser Lipo. The technique of laser or ultrasound-assisted liposuction has evolved dramatically over the past four decades to become one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures around the world.

However, the most important factor for optimal liposuction is not what device the surgeons are using, but who is performing the procedure. Dr. Jane meticulously examines the patient 1 -2 weeks pre-operatively and again on surgery day immediately before the liposuction procedure. She examines the patient in a variety of positions (upright and supine) and with and without movement (static and dynamic states with muscle contraction). Dr. Jane’s main goal of liposuction is to reduce local fat deposits in areas of concern for patients. She also always contours with an eye towards the entire aesthetic picture in order to achieve beautiful and natural-looking results. The use of local anesthesia instead of general anesthesia means there is a minimum downtime. Most of patients can go back to work within 2-5 days.

The Jenesis Principles for Successful 3D Micro Lipo™

  • In a good health with stable body weight but areas of stubborn fat that you can not remove by exercise and diet alone
  • At your initial consultation, a comprehensive examination and assessment will be done which includes assessing patterns of fat deposition between the subcutaneous and internal fat layers, skin laxity and tone, skin thickness, and musculofascial laxity to determine whether you are a good candidate for 3D Micro Lipo™
  • On Pre-operation day, your blood work will be checked by Dr. Jane and you will receive a detailed examination and assessment of fat deposits and we will discuss in detail about the areas where you are concerned. We will also discuss post-operative care at home and a diet and exercise program which should be started after 3D Micro Lipo™. We will record the pre-operative weight, body measurements and photographs
  • One night before surgery, you will start an antibiotic which has been prescribed by our office.
  • The morning of surgery day, we recommend you eat something light.
  • On your surgery day, topographic markings will be done in the upright position and bent position with and without muscle contraction.
  • 3D liposuction technique will be performed utilizing the super-wet technique, with no more than 8% of total body weight to be liposuctioned to minimize blood loss.
  • To ensure the most natural-looking results, microcannulas less than 3-mm in a diameter will be used in multiple layers in a gentle criss-crossing 3-directional technique, while avoiding liposuctioning too close to the dermis and muscle
  • A well-fitting compression garment should be worn post-operatively for the entire prescribed period
  • To prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT or blood clots), early mobilization is recommended
  • Post-operative appointments at time points of 1-day after, 1-week after, and ???? are mandatory to monitor the course of post-operative recovery
  • Laser and RF treatments can be started 2 weeks after the surgery for best results without complication
  • Educating patients about post-operative life-style modifications ensures that the results of liposuction will be permanent.

Q. What areas of the body can be treated with 3D Micro Lipo™?
A. Dr. Jane’s 3D Micro Lipo™ with Jeysis Fractional CO2 laser and Vaser is safe and ideal for all areas of the body such as the abdomen, thighs, upper body, neck, jawline, arms, “love handles”, “saddle bags” and even the face.
Q. Who is the best candidate?
A. Dr. Jane’s 3D Micro Lipo™ is meant for the fatty areas that do not respond to diet or exercise. The best candidate should have a good heath and of normal or a little above ideal body weight.
Q. How does the Dr. Jane’s 3D Micro Lipo™ compare to conventional liposuction?
A. Conventional liposuction is meant to be used for large areas of fat removal. The Dr. Jane’s 3D Micro Lipo™ is best for sculpting the body with pockets of resistant fat, as well as for skin tightening in a very artistic way. Traditional liposuction does not tighten the skin and typically does provide a very artistically sculpted result.
Q. What is the recovery period?
A. Jenesis 3D Micro Lipo™ is a minimally invasive procedure which is performed with local anesthesia. Most people are able to return to work in a couple of days and can start exercising after 2 weeks.
Q. How many treatments are required?
A. Typically, one treatment is required. Results can be seen within a week, with continued improvement over 3 to 6 months. You can opt for a second 3D Micro Lipo™ treatment if you are looking for slimmer shape.
Q. Is 3D Micro Lipo™ result permanent?
A. As long as you maintain your weight, the result is permanent. Please remember that regular exercise and healthy diet is the key to maintaining and even enhancing your 3D Micro Lipo™ results.
