GPS Lipo® LipoControl
Laser Liposuction in Tampa
Do you wish you felt more confident as you walked along the Florida coast? Stubborn pockets of fat affect many of us—whether it is in the form of a muffin top, a stomach bulge, or back fat—and it can make a visit to the beach in your bathing suit a dreaded experience rather than one to enjoy. If you’re exercising regularly and eating right, but aren’t seeing the shape of your body change, Dr. Castor can help you to achieve your ideal body with GPS Lipocontrol.
Lipocontrol is a safe, effective procedure that uses a laser to liquefy and remove unwanted fat in targeted body zones. In addition to removing unwanted fat, Lipocontrol’s thermal effect causes the skin to tighten, resulting in firmer, smoother skin that further enhances your body shaping results.
What is GPS Lipocontrol?
Throughout history, heat has been used to promote health and well-being. Lipocontrol is a brand new, innovative technique that harnesses the power of heat-generating lasers to selectively break up unwanted body fat and reshape your body under total control and safety.
Thanks to its revolutionary and patented technology of control and regulation, the laser system shows an accurate and controlled on-screen amount of energy delivery during the procedure. This allows for Dr. Castor to achieve maximized and totally homogeneous results, making Lipocontrol one of the safest and most effective devices on the market today.
Lipo means fat, and control means safety—so Lipocontrol is literally the controlled application of heat to liquefy fat.
The clinical term for this type of procedure is laser-assisted lipolysis (also called laser lipolysis or laser lipo for short), which is an evolution of traditional liposuction. Although effective, traditional liposuction is considered a highly-invasive procedure. By contrast, Lipocontrol laser lipolysis is a minimally-invasive procedure with virtually no downtime and very minimal pain or discomfort. Most patients resume normal activities the day after their procedure, however, it is recommended you wait several days before resuming strenuous activity such as exercising. Depending on your goals and physical condition, Lipocontrol can be an alternative to traditional liposuction, or your doctor may recommend a combination therapy of Lipocontrol with traditional liposuction.
Lipocontrol is the result of years of research and development, into the ideal methods for targeting unwanted fat zones with safety and control. The key point today is to provide the physician the highest level of control and safety for the treatment of lipolysis laser, and Lipocontrol is the answer.
How Does GPS Lipocontrol Work?
During a pre-procedure consultation, Dr. Castor will work with you to discuss your goals, explain the procedure and set realistic expectations. At your consultation, we will perform a Body Mass Index (BMI) test. This information—in combination with other health information—will be used to determine the potential outcomes you should expect. Lipocontrol is ideal for removing unwanted fat in selected body zones with all patients reporting results post-procedure due to the reduction in fat and the instantaneous skin tightening, but results will vary depending on a host of factors such as age, hormones, BMI and other health indicators.
To perform your Lipocontrol procedure, Florida plastic surgeon Dr. Castor will first administer a mild numbing agent to the targeted zone. Then a small metal tube called a cannula is inserted under the skin and a tiny laser beam is fired as Dr. Castor moves the cannula back and forth. As the laser warms the fat cells, it creates a thermal effect. Fat cells, which are highly receptive to thermal energy, are liquefied. Next, Dr. Castor will aspirate (suction) the liquefied fat cells away to reduce fat and achieve your desired shape and size.
