Liposuction And SmartLipo Of The Inner Thighs

One of the most common areas to treat with Liposuction and SmartLipo is the inner thighs. Not only does the skin tend to be thinner in that particular area, but the pockets of fat are almost impossible to get rid of by diet and exercise alone.

During the warmer months of the year this area of the body becomes very hard to hide while trying to stay as cool as possible. The inner thighs are very visible in swim suits, and can rub together in clothing causing discomfort, frustration, and insecurity.


Liposuction is performed to remove the bulk of the fat leaving only a thin layer of fat cells behind to achieve smooth even results. After removing a majority of the fat in the upper inner thigh region we perform SmartLipo using a laser to make the skin retract back nicely.

Showing off the area that was once an embarrassment will no longer be an issue, and feeling comfortable in your clothes without enduring the pain of chaffing on a daily basis will be a hardship of the past.

Liposuction And Smart Lipo To Achieve Youthful Restoration Of The Arms

As we age one of the first changes that takes place is the elasticity in our skin, becoming looser and thinner than before.



The arm area is one of the most noticeable areas these changes occur, especially when the climate gets into the hotter temperatures during the summer months and it becomes to hot to wear long sleeves.

At MyShape Lipo the liposculpture specialist Trevor Schmidt PA-C can help you achieve the arms you’ve always wanted. Now you can stop hiding them and take care of the problem. He recommends doing liposuction, and Smart Lipo to the arm area to achieve maximum results.

During the liposuction procedure up to 75% of the fat is removed. After removing the fat Smart Lipo would be done to help the skin retract back to the muscle and improve the elasticity. The procedure itself is typically completed within an hour. Arm liposuction shows speedy results and can give you sexy toned arms with minimal scarring and minimal down time.

Liposuction Using The Tumescent Technique

At MyShape Lipo, liposuction is performed using the tumescent technique. This technique is much safer, the procedure itself and recovery is much faster, and the results are smoother in comparison to the older forms of liposuction.

One of the largest concerns for patients having traditional liposuction performed was the dangers that general anesthesia posed. Some patients had reactions so severe, it was life threatening. With the tumescent technique that danger is completely alleviated, as local anesthesia is used and the patient is awake throughout the whole process.


In the beginning of the procedure a solution is injected underneath the layer of skin to numb the localized area. This solution consists of lidocaine used for numbing, epinephrin used to constrict the blood vessels which lessens the amount of blood loss to about two tablespoons, mixed in a saline solution. The fat is then removed by micro cannulas, through adits (tiny circular punches which are the entry sites) about the size of the end of a pencil eraser. After the procedure you will wear a compression garment for a minimum of two weeks to help the skin retract back to the muscle, reduce swelling and promote a faster healing time.

Trevor Schmidt PA-C Reviews the use of Smart Lipo with Liposuction



photo-smartlipoTrevor Schmidt Reviews the use of Smart Lipo with liposuction for the purpose of skin tightening.

Smart Lipo is a laser that can be used for many purposes and will vary from one practitioner to another as to how it is used.  Personally, at MyShape lipo, I choose to use it primarily for skin tightening.  It can also be used to break up tough fibrous tissue like in the male chest or revision liposuction procedures.  Some practitioners will use it to break up and melt fat prior to removing the fat with liposuction.  Personally, I don’t have a problem breaking up the fat so I feel that it is not necessary for this purpose.

The Smart Lipo laser has been in high demand since we purchased the machine.  There are patients calling asking about it all the time.  It is a great option for those that are concerned about looseness of their skin.  It will give the patient the best chance of skin tightening after liposuction.

The studies show that you can get up to 47% more skin tightening than liposuction alone.  It also showed that the use of the laser stimulates collagen growth for up to 6 months following the procedure.  So patients will continue to get thicker tighter skin for about 6 months.  It tends to be a slow process, so you can’t expect to see a difference after the procedure.

Trevor Schmidt Reviews Liposuction Technique for Large Volume Liposuction

As many of you may know, I (Trevor Schmidt PA-C) am the liposuction specialist at MyShape Lipo. I’ve performed over 15,000 liposuction procedures to date.  Today I’d like to discuss and review the techniques that I use to do Large Volume Liposuction.  The term Large Volume Liposuction refers to the removal of approximately 5 liters of fat in a single setting.

For patients that are very large, this can offer life changing results.  Imagine 2 ½, 2 liter bottles of soda filled with pure fat.  That is how much volume is removed in these procedures.  The technique for removing this much fat is not easy, which is why many doctors choose not to perform this procedure.

When removing larger volumes, I tend to use larger instruments to speed up the process.  My instrument of choice is a 5mm cannula which has a larger bore and larger opening for the fat removal.  When using this, I recommend staying more deep away from the skin.  The use of larger instruments can potentially cause divots or indentations in various areas because too much fat was removed.  That is why I stay deep and use this strictly for “debunking” the fat.

Once I have removed the majority of the fat and there is only a few inches that I can pinch, I will switch to the 4mm cannula, which will slow the rate of removal to allow me to pay attention to finer details and assure that the results are smooth and even.

Removing larger amounts of fat means more labor to get it out.  This is not easy since the fat doesn’t come out on it’s own.  It takes a lot of force and repetitive movement to accomplish, which could lead to injury to the practitioner.  But the results are phenomenal and the patients love it.
