Procedures Dr. Falcone Can Tailor to Meet Your Needs
Body Jet Liposuction
A transformative new technique for liposuction that gently dislodges fat cells from surrounding connective tissue using pulses of anesthetic fluid. The unwanted fat is then gently suctioned out. This technique also removes fat in a way that it can be transferred to other parts of the body such as the face, hands, or buttocks. The fat transfer procedure can be performed the same day as the Body Jet Liposuction. Most doctors performing liposuction in Philadelphia use a wet technique that swells the area to be liposuctioned. Body Jet constantly adds and removes the fluid during the procedure, so Dr. Falcone is better able to see the new contour as she creates it.
A minimally-invasive laser technology designed for the long-term reduction of cellulite, the Cellulaze™ laser fiber is threaded through a tiny incision and then used to treat dimples, level fat bumps, and stimulate the production of collagen. Only one treatment that takes less than two hours is required for long-lasting results and smoother, more supple skin.
PrecisionTX™ is a minimally invasive laser treatment for small areas of the body, especially the jawline, neck, and the ablation of axillary sweat glands. Those who undergo PrecisionTx™ treatments can experience the look of a surgical facelift without actually having to undergo one. The collagen production that was stimulated by the heat ultimately leads not only to skin thickening but also retraction of skin tissue.
Utilizing a unique laser that both liquefies fat cells and tightens skin without the trauma associated with traditional liposuction, SmartLipo™ is performed under local anesthesia while the patient is awake, does not require stitches, has minimal bruising and minimal-to-no downtime. This procedure is ideal for smaller areas of concentrated fat and can be used on all body areas including the abdomen, back, legs, arms, and neck. SmartLipo™ is ideal for patients who are in good health and within 25 pounds of their ideal weight, have one or more body areas of local fat deposits where exercise and/or diet has had little or no effect, and are motivated to rid themselves of these fatty areas.
VASER® Liposelection is an innovative body sculpting procedure that uses ultrasound to sculpt many areas of the body and removes unwanted fat. This removed fat can be used as part of the fat grafting process to prepare the excess fat for injection in other areas of the body. VASER® Liposelection offers precise sculpting of delicate areas of the body, is minimally invasive, and results in a fast recovery time.

|Results*||Can treat a larger area at one time than other methods.*||Less swelling from excess fluid means both the doctor and patient can see the actual body contouring as it takes place. This provides more aesthetic accuracy and fewer surprises than a procedure where you must wait for the swelling to subside to see the actual result.*||Only one treatment is required for long-lasting results and smoother, more supple skin.*||Treatments can provide the look of a surgical facelift without actually having to undergo one for the appropriate patient.*||Uses a unique laser that liquefies the fat cells and destroys them. Simultaneously, the laser tightens the skin to avoid the appearance of “hanging skin” often seen after liposuction. The result is a much improved, smoother look.*||Not only offers a superior result but also gives patients tighter results often with less bruising.*|
